Tivo XL4 constantly reboots


If you have done the usual thing - i.e. pulled the plug and done a forced restart and the problem continues, you've probably got a bad hard drive and will need to replace the unit. But I trust you have called Tivo tech support at 877-367-8486. If you are an existing Tivo Customer, which it sounds like you are, they've got good deals right now - if you call them - for new ones - prices ranging from $129 for a straight XL and $199 for a 4XL

How to remove a stuck dvd


Most DVD products have a small hole near the tray on the device itself. Take a paper clip and bend it so you can put one end in this hole. Push the paper clip straight into this hole gently.... the tray should slide open.

Have a philips pet800 portable dvd player which won,t read dvd discs.the display shows the dvd loading then after a minute it stops and displays that there is no disc


The problem is the lens of your dvd. You will see the optical lens when you open the the dvd and put the disc. Cleaning the lens of the dvd, you must be very careful, never touch the lens with your hand,Use a cotton buds to wipe the the lens gently.

Picture stays frozen on Powering Up


It may be that the Tivo has gone south. One option would be to send the Tivo in for service. Often times, the first thing to fail is the hard drive which could be causing your problem. To fix this, you could either purchase an upgrade kit with the Tivo software preloaded or purchase a new drive and configure and install the software yourself. Your service subscription is tied to the box id, not the hard drive.

You can find out more inforamtion on www.tivocommunity.com or look specifically for the hinsdale howto which talks about upgrading the tivo. If this is the problem, the advantage is that you may come out with a Tivo with more storage. If the hard drive is not the problem, this will be of no use.

Humax Tivo Stuck on the welcome screen


I just had the same problem with mine and found another post that at least fixed mine.

I had a DVD in the unit as it was restarting. I took a flathead screwdriver and opened up the DVD slot by inserting at the top right corner and opening the door. On the inside, at the bottom right, is a button that ejects the DVD player (the eject button on the outside won't work while it's booting up). I ejected the DVD that was in it, unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, and then it rebooted just fine.

Hope it works out for you too...

"Welcome. Powering-up " on screen and cannot turn it off manually or remotely


If you have a TiVo that is stuck on powering up, you likely have a bad hard drive. See this page for more information about a TiVo that is stuck on powering up.
