This indicates a problem with the threading position sensor. Check that the tape path is clear and that nothing has fallen into the deck. Sometimes loose pieces of cassette labels can cause this problem. Everything must be clean.

Vhs tape will not play

Probably the loading belt has stretched or gone brittle. Another possibility is the lamp in the centre of the tape loading bay has failed.

No sound and picture

If you have the older TV with a CRT, here is my answer. By now this TV has a loose capacitor. The capacitor will not have any solder around the pin for a proper ground. Next, there may be a large power resistor that is not attached to the board as for the same reason as the capacitor mentioned. I have not repaired your TV model, but experience tells me what to do. You asked, so I'm sharing. These are just one of many grounds. You will need to solder the vertical IC, Horizontal transistor, horizontal transformer, flyback transformer etc. You will have to inspect the board for any and all solder grounds. Also, be sure to resolder the small board that is attatched to the CRT (pull this board off carefully and then solder). You should not have to purchase any parts, resoldering will bring it back to life.

How do I get the picture to be as big as the tv

The picture is controled by the zoom on the tv remote and on the reciever remote. if you're looking at Wide screen containt the your screen will be black on the top and bottom, zooming will make it fit but you will loose some left and right info. Only HD containt formated for home tv's will, like Oasis, or National geographics, ect will give you full screen. Wide screen is for Movie theaters not TV. This realy sucks but to get a large Wide Screen Picture, You have to buy a supper large tv otherwise, the Wide screen image is small and wide and preaty much anoying with a short wide picture with black bands on top and below..
Sorry. We all have to live with this stuff.

Transfer large files >4GB from a Humax HDR linux to windows USB

Get yourself a video file converter and covert to another format to lower the fiesize, you'll lose a little quality but your videos will be stored on usb and usable on windows. I use the free program 'anyvideo converter' for windows it's free and reliable, but it doesn't have too many features.

I have a Spectroniq PLTV-3250 which went completely dead after two years. Am told by the TV repair people that it needs a Power Supply Module. Is there any way you can send one to me in order to repair the...

MODEL: Spectroniq PLTV-3250

SYMPTOM: Totally Dead; no lights, no noises from inside.

SOLUTION: As most folks here know, It is most likely the power supply. After fixing a few of them, all having the same problem, I thought I would share this solution with those who possess electronic repair knowledge.

First, use this solution AT YOUR OWN RISK. DO NOT attempt the repair if you lack the necessary skills or equipment. I am NOT RESPONSIBLE for damage to the TV, to you, or to anything else if you proceed.with this repair. Read this post thoroughly before doing anything so you understand what skills and equipment are required.

Second, this is an ADVANCED repair; the board may be irreparably damaged if care is not taken.

Unplug the set and let it sit for about twenty minutes to let the High Voltage (+169 VDC) drain off. Then remove the back cover. Check again that the set is actually unplugged.

The power supply is on the left. Remove the screws holding the supply and turn it over, laying it on something that will insulate it from the TV chassis (a magazine for example). Check across the largest electrolytic cap (C1) with a multimeter to see if the high voltage is gone. If it is, proceed. If not, short across the large capacitor (C1) to finish draining it.

With a multimeter set on resistance (ohms) or diode test, locate Q7 and check it for a shorted condition. If it is, remove it VERY CAREFULLY. If it is not, STOP. This solution can not help you. It is surface mount, very small, and worse, glued down, so it is difficult to remove

NOTE: I cannot find any tech info on this TV, or a way to decipher the markings on Q7. Apparently, it is some sort of level-detecting switch. But once removed, it can be "strapped" with a diode and the set will suffer no ill effects.

Locate the small electrolytic cap close to pin 4 of the TEA1532A chip (C33). The anode of your diode (1N914 or equivalent) will be soldered to the positive terminal of this cap. Then locate the small electrolytic cap closest to pin 1 of the TEA1532A; the cathode of the diode will be soldered to the positive terminal of this cap (C32). Be careful to mount the diode such that when the power supply is re-installed, it will not touch the chassis or the board. MAJOR damage to the set will result if it does. Check your work to make sure there are no solder bridges or blobs that will cause shorts. Also, it is VERY IMPORTANT that the braided cables be taped well away from the power supply. If that braid touches the metallic parts of the supply, you will either blow the fuse or ruin the power supply. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Re-install the supply, raise the set to the vertical, check once more that all is well, then plug the set in. If the red light on the front panel is on, start smiling and use the remote to turn the set on.

Good Luck

Iomega Screenplay Pro HD - No Menu

I had the same problem with the Screenplay Pro HD. My Iomega was working fine and one day after exchanging files with a friend I got the logo, then the loading message and then it went into a black screen while the blue light kept blinking.
Obviously the connection to the TV was fine because the logo appeared.
I solved the problem by downloading and reinstalling the firmware.
I downloaded the firmware from the iomega web site.
Notice that during the installation process you get the message that it will delete your data and then shortly after you have the option to delete or keep it. Hang in there. This part is a little nerv wrecking.

Hope this helps.

Clicking as soon as plug in

Hi there.
There is a large copper power relay coil at the back of these units, take the cover off the unit and locate the coil (is usually quite large) if you have to plug it it to identify the coil, then it has to be de-soldered from the main board and a new one soldered into place.
On the coil there will be identifying marks, most electronic component store sell the type of coil you need or can lead in the right direction.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Cyberhome dvr 1600 problem

The power supply needs improvement.The large capacitors need to be replaced with new ones with a 35 o 50 volts rating instead of 10 volts. Also,maybe some diodes and rectifiers in the power supply needs checking.After the improvement the addition of a small fan to keep the power supply cool is reccomended.
Good Luck!
