    Just got home from the store about 30 min. ago...brand new Toshiba 40rv525u. Same problem with green light coming on and yet no picture or even a light display. We're packing it up and returning it for something better. My husband is an A/V engineer, so we know we did all the right setup and troubleshooting. My recommendation: shoulda bought the Samsung.

Mine used to make some beeping sound. what i did was i unplugged the socket. then opened the tv case and some parts had fell out inside the tv causing it to not turn on. so i put them back on and it was working again but every now and then it goes. (p.s before actually trying to take of the case for the tv let it rest otherwise it might still have some electrical energy and might give you an electric shock.) hope this helps

We finally had a repair man out and he replaced 2 convergence IC. They were $80 each so get out the check book! Works fine now!

Cm7000pal dvr stuck in wizard on continue in searching for channels seams to load on hdd then goes to continue


I have 3 of these 7000pals and 2 have done a similar thing, one of them did it twice. After the Loading Channel Master screen hangs for a time, they would restart. Then the same cycle would keep repeating. It seems like after years of adding and deleting timers, the DVR's software gets "confused". I've noticed that twice it happened on the hour just as a program timer started while I was watching a program through the DVR. ZAP...Locked up! The power button would not even work to turn it off.

The steps below fixed all three instances of this failure.

To unlock the Channel Master CM7000PAL DVR:

1. Unplug the recorder from the wall outlet and DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA. Now plug it back into the wall power outlet.(This will keep the recorder from freezing and rebooting)

2. let it go thru it's normal bootup, tv guide search, etc.

3. When you are able to, hit MENU and then go up to TIMERS. Delete all of the record timers. Unplug it, reconnect the antenna, and plug it back in.

4. After a now a proper bootup, re-program you timers and you will be good to go.

5. And the best thing is, all of your pre-recorded shows will still be there on the hard drive.

I would suggest that you do a yearly "TIMER CLEAN" to avoid this trouble in the future.

DCT700/US - Unable to turn on with remote. Yellow light flashes on then off to brief red light then nothing. Tried removing cables and plugging in to power outlet only, but same result.


it sounds like the box is working proper... just needs to wake up. the remote may be your problem.
God Bless Motorola For Giving Us Cable Boxes With No Buttons!
ok, does your remote have lights that flash when you hit buttons?
for example pushing volume lights up tv. if the cable light doesn't flash then it may need reprogrammed. if none of this applies to your remote... sorry

good luck

NO VIDEO FIRST THING IN MORN GREEN LIGHT ON/OFF


hi zackmann37! I will be glad to assist you on this issue. 1st lets try to isolate the problem, unplug the power of you dvr receiver from the power strip or surge protector and leave it unplug for 1min. after 1min, plug in directly to the power outlet not on the power strip or surge protector. Why? some of the power strip does not give the 100% current needed by the dvr system thats why its malfunctioning, it gives the 100% power voltage but not the 100% current. then let the dvr reboot by itself once its rebooting you will see attention 015 then it will go on a progress until it download the programming guide and you got you tv shows, observe it until the next morning, leave the dvr plug in directly to the wall, now before you sleep, turn off the receiver by pressing the power buttonon the remote to turn off the green light. once you wake up in the morning, press the power button and the green light and the amber light will turn on and it will show your program, but if the problem still exist, you need to call on 1-800-333-3474 talk to dish tech support and tell them that you need a replacement receiver, you have a dvr lost of function. pls feel free to get in touch if you have any query

Dont know your brand, but it sounds that your interface board (power) is not holding low voltage(5V) to main brd. It is not something I or anyone can guide you thru this unless you have an electronics troubleshooting background. In other words, no easy fix here, sorry. I would suggest taking unit to a qualified shop in your area.

TV WILL NOT TURN OFF


Greeting inmiltown,

It sounds like your approaching the end of your lamp's life. Most projection televisions have internal lamp timers. These lamp timers usually give you time to buy a new bulb before it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps.

My Sony tv CRT


If it's between 5-10 secs, that's normal. You will turn the tv on and hear a loud (buzz/hum) that is the picture tube firing up, once it's fired up, it has a few more seconds until your picture comes up fully. That is about 5-10 secs from pushing the power button.

If it's taking longer than that, your picture tube may be going out.

I had a 36XBR250 and it took about 10 secs to fire up and show a picture, and it was 5 1/2 years old.
