Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

Canon Elura 70 - It is stuck on telephoto. It won't go back to "regular" or wide angle. On the screen it seems that I get to to regular view, but when viewing the tape, it videos in telephoto so I don't get my whole image. When I view the tape, there is a little square on the bottom that goes from big to small - I know that isn't supposed to be there. I have combed the manual for a hint, but don't even know what to call this problem. It didn't do this the last time I recorded about 6 months ago. Help!! Joan

    This is not a projection TV, it is a video recorder. If you know what the problem is, please provide with specific instructions on how to get it back to normal. I suspect something was reset or a button accidentally pushed to make it do this - at least that is what I hope.

    All tapes. It seems to be a setting on the camera.

  • Twitterbugs Sep 23, 2008

    Any ideas on this?? I really need help as I need to use this video camera or get a new one. It is perfectly fine except for the telephoto feature going bonkers!

  • Twitterbugs Sep 24, 2008

    Auto control is not in the manual so I'd need specific instructions on how to set that.
    Yet someone sent me to a discussion on this topic. They advised taking the unit and hitting it hard 2-3 times on a hand or soft book. You know what............ it worked.

    Thanks
    Benimur. The first posted solution worked like a charm. I banged the
    bottom of the camera hard on a book 3 times (what did I have to loose?)
    and not only did it begin recording properly, but the things I recorded
    on the faulty setting played fine as well. Weird stuff,
    really............

First you do is to take out the battery for 3 - 4 hours and put it back if " telephoto "is still there. If ever still there,then look for a small reset button and push it to reset the factory default setting..

Hope it may help you;

    Change it to Automatic Control mode. That will make it work.

Try a "hard reset" first by unplugging the set for 30 seconds. and if no help, you may have a problem with the SMPS power supply, it might have a bad capacitor or two by now. Worth repair if engine is good compared to a flat panel.

How to locate and clean the mirror on philips projection set


Remove upper back. The mirror is right there facing down at 45 degree angle to the three projector lenses and the screen. It is a silver polyester film laid over a backing board. I cleaned mine successfully with very soft paper towel (Bounty) and 70% alcohol. Rub gently in small circles until the alcohol is dry. If you just wipe the alcohol across the surface it will dry with a bad white haze. You have to rub it dry and then keep moving on until whole mirror is cleaned. This is only necessary if there are smokers in the house. Cleaning gets the nicotine film off the mirror. Best to not clean if possible.

Do we have to manually set the pix set key for every station/show we watch? We loose scrolling writing at the top and bottom of the screen on my dad's new 32" lcd tv bought at Wal-mart. When we set...


Thanks for the offer but we cannot afford to pay additional money for something the Factory support service Should provide.

From what we have heard through the Verizon installer, our SANYO LCD TV probably does NOT have a Automatic picture adjust system. That would most likely be the reason for the maunual button on the remote control. The troublle is that with the FIOS service, you do NOT use the TV's remote control. That leaves to switching back and forth between two different remotes wiich can be vary confusing for someone that is not 88 years old.

It is bad enough that you have to remember which channels you have to go to to receive HD programming signals. If I were making a TV set, and or running a TV network/ cable service, I would transmit both HD and regular signals on the same channel number and let the TV and or the decoder box figure out if my set could display High Definition. Isn't that what we spend lots of money buying equipment and paying each month for service?

If anyone out there knows if the SANYO 32 inch LCD TV sold at Wal-Mart automatically adjust to the picute format, (PIX 1-4) we sure ould like to hear from you.
