Re: visual fault

Are you sure this is only while watching tv with the reciver?? Try watching a dvd or video. Sounds like a burn in line on a tube or lcd type projection set. Let us know please and a picture would help if possible?

Why do i get bufferring

phillip, you get buffering because more data has been received and your computer is processing. This is annoying. You could:

- close other programs, applications and tabs when you are watching movies etc.
- clean your computer. try free : or other cleaners.
- increase your internet speed.
- if above don't help, increase RAM and get faster processor. \
-Good luck

My auria eq5588 has no picture but has sound if u hold a light to it u can faintly see the picture

This does not have a replaceable bulb like a DLP projector. If you cannot adjust the brightness, then there is a fault with the backlighting. This is not anything you could replace yourself.

Line on the screne in red at all times

hi ya

there could be 2 possible issues, although i'm presuming your set up

The first one is that the cable that connects between the box and the tv is faulty or not connecting correctly, simpley remove and re-fit or try a new cable

if the line of red is always on screen, this could be a fault with the panel (screen) which cannot be fix, or if it can it will be jolly expensive

hope it helps,

Disclaimer: The answer provided is entended for you to have some basic electronic knowledge and soldering skills.

Troubleshooting switching power supplies just sucks, but there are ways of finding the fautly componets. In my case, a visual inspection found 2 bad capitors, the tops bulging open and oosing goo. If you look at the tops of any other caps they should be flat. You can also note faulty caps by discoloration of the circiut board itself. I had one other faulty cap on my supply that, by visual inspection had been running hot. After replacing the defective caps (Nichicon 105c) I went with an ohm meter, and checked the smaller transistors for faults. Q1 a very common transistor was bad (2N3906) with a base emitter short. In conclusion, it's the cheap caps that are at fault, sometimes taking the silicon with them as they short out. The unit is now working.
As an added note, I understand that there is a Radio Shack branded version of the HD3150 as well.

Yes you can disable the monitor network setting which should stop the behaviour. I have seen it too, its annoying and very odd.

Visual problems with Dish Network's 622 dvr

Hi funnytalkmy name is Mike Houston of DISH Network. There are a couple of things we can doto fix this problem; the first thing is to make sure all connections are handtight from the receiver to the wall. After that you will want to press the MENUbutton and press the numbers 6-1-1 on the remote key pad, and then you willwant to press the Check Switch button and the TEST button and after the test isdone you will want to exit out of all menus. Then it will require the signaland you will have a clear picture.
