Question about Sylvania 6313CA 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

1 Answer

Menu Font/Text and channel numbers all black.

All programmable windows and displays seem to be coming up black. Any menu system is impossible to read much less navigate. Having read the manual a while back, I believe the suggestion was to leave the unit unplugged for an extended period of time, which I've done on multiple occasions. Anyone else have another suggestion to offer?

How do I retune DMTech TV Freeview with DVD video please?


Please fallow bellows instruction to retune your TV.
Could you please follow that EEPROM RESET INSTRUCTION OR FIRST TME INSTALLATION.
Also please don’t forget that MENU BUTTON from your remote, it’s not the one in the middle of remote.
There are the other MENU BUTTON in left down bottom side.
Cannot access Digital TV and am asked for a Lock code Key?
If you cannot access the Digital TV option then conduct an EEPROM RESET as mentioned above. If you are prompted to enter a lock code key enter three / four zeros.
Alternatively when prompted to enter the lock code key conduct a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION also mentioned above.
There are two options available. The first option is to conduct a general reset that will reset all user preferences. The second option would be to conduct an EEPROM RESET. An EEPROM RESET would reset all the internal hardware.

Instructions - Please refer to your DMTECH remote control and user manual provided
1. Turn the Television ON ? Button on front of Television / Power button on remote control.
2. Make sure that you are on Analogue television by pressing the TV/DVB-T button until you see PR and the channel number selected in the top right corner of the screen, e.g. PR 1.
3. You must then Press the button labelled Display until a window titled INFORMATION is displayed on the screen.
4. Only when the window titled Information is present can you continue by pressing the digit (1) twice and then pressing the button titled LINE. If you make a mistake then press Display again to remove the window titled INFORMATION and repeat the process. (Display - 1 1 - Line)
5. Once you have successfully completed step four you will notice that a menu appears on the left of the screen. You can then select which option you want, either RESET or an EEPROM RESET using the arrow keys. To execute an instruction please use the RIGHT ARROW KEY and not the ENTER button.
Make sure you have properly conducted a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION and an AUTOMATIC SEARCH. If having done this you can try conducting a manual search in an attempt to force / lock the channel.
This will erase the DVBT tuner memory and reset the interface card. This may resolve poor channel reception, the inability to store channels or even receive certain channels.

Instructions - Please refer to your DMTECH remote control and user manual provided
1. Turn the Television ON and select digital television by pressing the button labelled TV / DVB-T located under the power button on the remote control.
2. On the remote control locate and press the button labelled Menu, found at the extreme bottom left of the remote control.
3. A Menu should now appear displaying options. Scroll down and select the option labelled SETTINGS using the ARROW KEYS and the enter key located in the middle of the remote control. On the next menu you must select INSTALLATION to move on to the next menu.
4. On this last menu scroll down to the last option labelled FIRST TIME INSTALLATION and select it pressing the enter key. You will then be prompted to delete all channels, using the left arrow key to select yes and press enter to execute. The television will reset and prompt you to commence an AUTO SEARCH. Follow these instructions to tune in channels.picture
Digital Television requires much more from existing aerial systems. Having more than one digital TV may reduce signal quality and strength depending on how the aerial system is set up. It is therefore recommended that if you decide to use more than one digital television you use a booster and or at least make sure you are using a digital ready aerial. Using an existing Aerial that is split may reduce signal strength depending on how many times it is split. Please see the diagram below. The best solution when using an existing aerial is to purchase a booster device. Aerial Splitting - Why a booster is recommended. A booster is used to apply a small current that boosts the existing signal. A booster can be purchased from all main TV/HI-FI - consumer electronic product retailers.

''big black box that appears in the middle of the screen on certain channels''


It's your "closed captioning." Just turn that feature off, and you'll be good to go!

Black box in middle of screen


Note that the large black box goes away when pushing buttons on the tv (ex: the black box will disappear to show the volume setting when changing the volume on the tv but it will cover the picture and the menu display of the dtv box).

This is caused by the closed caption setting of the television set NOT the captioning of the converter box. To fix this you must open your television's menu, find the ccd/closed caption option, and turn it off. This is a frustrating problem as when most people are told to shut off the captioning they try to do so at the box.

Normal dtv box captioning will appear as a small text box at the bottom of the screen as you would expect - not as a giant black rectangle that covers most of the screen. If you do want to shut this off too you will find that you can't do it through the usual menu options (the menu will only allow changes to font, color etc.) - there should be a ccd button on the remote that when pushed will scroll through ccd-1, ccd-2,... off.

A black box pops up on the screen and just leaves the border area around the box available for viewing. It only happens on a few channels at a time and seems to alternate as to what channels are affected,...


MRS3309,
It sounds as though the closed captioning has some how gotten turned on. Not all programs are closed caption supported so the box will not show on every channel nor will it necessarily be on the same channel all day. Go into the menu on the tv and ensure the CC option is turned off. You may have to go into set up or preferences to locate the CC portion of the menu. I hope this assists you and thank you for using Fix Ya. If I can assist you further please let me know.

Black area on screen,


Hi omsoc,

This could possibly be an issue with closed captioning. While some closed captioning is a marquee-type text near an edge of the display, your television may have an option turned on to display a different channel of captioning that would likely display a large black box on your screen if there is no data to display. This would explain why this would take place suddenly at the same time each night, as well as why pressing the display button would cause it to disappear. I suggest you look into your menu to try turning this option off, then watch the channel you normally watch at this time. If this does not resolve the situation, I recommend you contact your manufacturer’s product support line.

Thank you,
Jason,
