Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Humax PVR 9200T freezing picture and will not turn off.

Please can you advise about a problem that has just occured? The picture freezes after 30 secs from boot up and I am unable to turn off the PVR at the front switch, nor can I use the remote control either to record or to change channels etc.
Humax have been 'deafening in their silence' in response to my intial enquiry to them. The PVR will be 3 soon.

I did a Google search for this web page.

Thanks in anticipation

    Exactly the same problem. My machine is about 2.5 years old.

    Same here, was rock-solid on the old firmware. Did the upgrade early on this year and it's been like this ever since. Will lock within 30secs - 1min when coming out of standby and requires a hard power off/on to rectify. Very miffed.

    I have the exact same problem, but the solution posted is no use as the box freezes within 3-6 seconds of the boot completion, so using the remote to reset is not an option.

    Any ideas to get round this problem would be gratefully received, as i have a wife who's at my throat to get this solved.

    as above.


    the 2 reset solution seems to work.  Box was a bit sluggish after but seems to have recovered now (prob downloading the EPG).

Unplug the aerial; switch the PVR On; if you have control via the remote do a reset to default settings thus:

1. press Menu on the remote
2. select Installation and enter default password of 0000 unless you have changed it
3. select Default settings and okay on YES
4. then turn if off again via the remote
5. plug the aerial back in and it will scan for channels, save them of course.

I got help on this from other forums but saw your request for help. This worked for me.

Sorry can't help on this. Presumably you've switched off/on at mains and checked all connections secure. Would a factory reset help, see tips how to do on fixya, although not sure if you would lose library data.

Contact your LG dealer & have someone call to check the software version currently used by the TV. It may need updated as there is an issue for picture freeze, if this is ok there could be a problem with the signal strength of your signal, if this drops then it will also cause the picture to freeze, in which case you would need to have your aerial checked.

TV freezes for a short period of time.


First a couple of questions:

1) What is the make and model please?

2) When the picture freezes, is it like a snapshot photo? or does the screen blank?

This sounds like an interruption in the digital data stream. If the picture remains on the screen, the "new" frame information is not being received nor processed. This can be as simple as a bad cable connection or noise on the digital information data lines.

Check to see if there is any pattern to when this occurs. For example, does it happen more frequently after the set has been on for a while? Try cooling down the set to see if temp effects the behavior.

Please update this and we'll work to resolve it.

Thanks,
Dan

Hi.

If the picture & sound are ok in analogue mode then chances are you have problem with digital tuner.
This may be expensive to repair so I would advise connect external freeview box or sky etc to get digi channels using scart to connect to your TV.
