I believe these Sony TV's have a built in obsolesence and Sony does not care about fixing them. I don't think a 7-year old TV is an "old model". Who can afford to by an expensive TV every 7 years. Shame on Sony.

If you can not turn on TV set with the power button on the TV its not a standby problem as this would by pass the standby. Theres most likly, on a set of this age, top have a poiwer regulator problem and is going to need a trained tech to assist you in this repair.

Hi i bought a second hand RDR HX 750 DVD recorder without a remote. Do i need a remote to see if it is working, and it don't want play when putting in a DVD.

Some TV remotes are able to be programmed to run other equipment that connect to TV. You will need to check what codes are required for the TV remote if you want to try it. ( My samsung remote is programmed to turn on and play my sony dvd player.)

Do you have a universal remote? Sometimes they will forget their programming, especially when batteries are removed, or get low. If you have the codes and instructions for your remote, I would try reprogramming it. If that doesn't work, take it back to the company that did the cleaning. It worked when you sent it to them, or at least if it didn't this wasn't wrong with it. Seems to me they hold some liability in this, and should make it right without charging you.

The sequence should go from the wall to the VCR then the VCR to the RF modulator then from the RF modulator to the TV and this should allow you to record a TV program and watch a DVD at the same time.

Need code for Viore TV to program LG RC897T DVD/VHS Recorder

I believe Viore is the same as Samsung. I only noticed this by accident as I bought a Viore TV and my friend bought a Samsung and I noticed both remotes were identical. I tried the Samsung codes and the remote worked. Good luck! Kevin
