2600C1 Pace box inactive for 2 months. When switched on red light is on in power on/off button and is permanently on no matter what I do, it wont even switch off.  There is no control over anything and when I use the remote not a glimmer of life. I have tried another remote but no difference.

    The box is "locked"in the standby state (red light) No sign of activity, the "remote"indicator light does not come on when using remote. Cannot switch off manually, red light stays on no matter.

    What else can I say, the box is in standby (red light on) and wont come out of it remotely or manually, all very frustrating

  • jewson Nov 04, 2008

    I have solved the problem of the red light staying on. I threw the box under a road roller and bingo the light went out.

    Many thanks for all your input I will keep trying. (I was only joking about the roller) Any further solutions will be welcome. Fred T.

Hi,

Initially, sounds like a failed firmware on your Satellite box. However, pls try:

  • disconnect the power;
  • press and hold BACKUP button on the front panel;
  • reconnect the power while still pressing on the BACKUP button;
  • wait for all four front panel lights to light up;
  • allow the unit to reload software.
Alternately and if you are somewhere in Europe (UK?), pls reference this page.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Have you tried unplugging it for a bit , and see if it will come out of that state?
if it does not then there is an electronic component problem in the standby circuit or a power issue in the circuitry , which then it will need testing to find the culprit

Tip

Force the Upgrade of your SKY + firmware at the touch of a button


This applies to all PVR2 and PVR3 Amstrad. Pace and Thompson SKY+ units you Sky installer may do this for your it is simple to do;

HOLD THE BACKUP BUTTON WHILE YOU POWER ON THE UNIT

the TV and SKY+ will look like this during the upgrade please do not power down during this time as you will almost certainly kill your unit I always connect my Belkin UPS prior to a forced upgrade just to make sure it is always best to make sure that it will not fail during this process.

Notice that the lights on the unit this one is a PACE type PVR2 the REMOTE MESSAGE and ONLINE LED's are all illuminated as well as the POWER.

I had an old PACE box that had been used for the last 8 years that was still at v5.04d given to me last month I forced the upgrade and it took it to the latest version v5.07u this may not sound that important but there are some firmware versions especially for the AMSTRAD PVR2 unit that will cause audio lag and loss on certain channels (Virgin1, CN and CH4).

After the upgrade has completed I suggest that you check which version of software your unit is now using;

1.Press the Services button
2.System Setup menu
3.Press Option 5, 'System Details'

This shows the same unit 9F2106 before and after the upgrade the smudged info is the viewing card number etc.

I have bought an Antsig universal remote control for my Sony DVD CMT-GP8D but the 4 diget code is not in the operation book. Please help


Have you tried the manual option? Turn on your DVD player. Press "TV" or maybe a different button for DVD players, then a red light on your remote blinks once. Then hold both the "up" volume and "up" channel button down until your red light is permanently on. Then whilst holding your remote control 1mm away from your DVD player signal light (usually red too), hold down the "power" button until your dvd player switches off. Then switch it on again and try other buttons. However, I've only tried this on an LG TV, but took me 2 days until I really put the remote in front of that signal light. Took about 1 minute or more while holding down the "power" button. Hope it works =)

Arc mouse wont turn on, it was working fine until it started to get unresponsive and the red light started flashing so i replaced the batteries but now it wont turn on. I even tried connecting the reciever...


In extensive use the USB-device overheats. Removing it when not in use helps, but it is allready permanently damaged and only real solution is to switch the mouse to new one.

Guarantee is 3 years. Wich is a good thing because these tend to fail in 6 months to 2 years.

My ps3 wont turn on


Alright you need to put your ps3 in what is called "safe mode". First make sure there is no disc in the ps3, then turn off the ps3 in the back(main power switch), turn that switch back on, then hold the power button in front until you hear a total of 3 beeps, then let go, the light will be red, hold the power button again and you will hear 2 beep then a quick double beep, let go of power button and the light should stay green. A menu will appear, try all option working your way up from option 1 until it works. If you go through all 6 option and you are still having issues call 1-800-345-7669 to have your ps3 serviced

Sumsung Omnia Screen Inactive


Try going into the Menu.... Then "Settings" icon. Click the "System" tab on the bottom, then go to the "Power" icon.. Then click on the "Battery Power" tab for options.

My settings are as follows.....

Turn off device if not used for 5 minutes.
(Checked box) Turn off back-light if not used for 30 seconds
(Checked box) Turn off back-light when a button is pressed or the screen is tapped.

I don't seem to have a problem getting my screen back up after being inactive. If your settings are ok, and you still have the problem, I would have it checked out. Maybe a defect?

Hope this helps....

If the power button does not light up at all, I would guess the power supply has a problem.

Tv wont turn


The blinking red light at the the front of the television is the "Diagnostic STANDBY/TIMER LED".
This little red light will blink 2, 4, or 5 times and then stay off for three-seconds. And blink again for 2, 4, or 5 times. This cycle repeats. The most common diagnostic code is the 4-blink code.

When the red LED blinks 4-times, it means one of two possible causes:
1) +13V is not supplied on the A-board. Or, 2) IC502 is faulty.

It is best to take this television set to a repair facility and ask that the +13V power supply be repaired.
The copper tracks and integrated circuit pads are very thin and delicate on the KV-24FV12 circuit board, and will easily lift off of the circuit board, if the incorrect desoldering tool is used. Unless one has a good quality PACE vacuum desoldering unit, one should not attempt to repair the television.
