SOURCE: TEAC dvb420 set top box

Sorry guys, have checked on other forums and unless it is still under warranty, or you are good with electronics, it is not worth fixing. Apparently it is a problem with the chip and capacitors on the board. I opened up my STB after fining this out and found heat stress marks all around the chip. Result : Its dead!

SOURCE: Just need to know where to plug in the red, green and blue cords

The red-blue-green outputs of the cable box are COMPONENT video, and the yellow-white-red inputs on the tv are COMPOSITE video. Although the words sound almost alike and the connectors look similar, they are incompatible signals. You'll need to change either the cable box or the tv so they match. Maybe this would be a good way to rationalize getting that new home theater system! Or maybe call your tv cable company and ask for a different box with composite video output. Once the cable box matches the tv, you don't necessarily need to change the cables. If the connectors fit, go ahead and use the cables you have.

SOURCE: Panasonic model CT-36SL13G TV

Your problem is most likely the thermistor , or degausser, is going bad. It is a little black box with pins and says D1R5M on it. It can be found by following the wire from the degaussing coil around the picture tube. The location number is CF803( i think)the Panasonic partnumber is D4DF1R50001. Also, I believe your fuse is 6.3A not 3.6A.

SOURCE: Can't set up my new Nikkai 5.8GHz video sender.

Could be that the Scart socket doesn't pass through the signals from the receiver. I had a Goodmans TV with Scart input which just didn't respond to the receiver. When I moved it to the Scart connector on my VCR it worked a treat.

Picture flashes 5 or 6 times when changing channels on LG 4k. Using 2.0 HDMI cable from Fios set top box to Integra 60.5 pre/pro and out to TV. Works fine if I bypass processor and go direct to TV


Hi,
Try to check with any other HDMI input of the Integra to input the set top box. Even if facing the same problem then you have to check both the the HDMI cable. Better replace it. Always remember that do not plug or remove the HDMI cable when the system are ON. Yo have to turn off before making any connection.

With set up box audio in to tv causes high pitch sound


I am assuming this should read 'Set top box'. What kind of cable are you using?

Usually the set top box connects via a SCART lead but yours may be HDMI if it is a very new set top box.

If you are using RCA plugs, you may have cross connected the wrong cables. The RCA cables should be colour-coded. RED and WHITE are for audio, Yellow is for video.

Best advice is to switch it all off, remove all the cables you attached, and start again. The instruction manual/user guide usually has an illustration to help you identify what your set up looks like - there are usually several examples.

If the cables you need did not come with the set top box, you will need to purchase them.

When you are connecting audio leads, you should use the 'audio out' on the set top box and the 'audio in' on your TV set.

It would help to know the EXACT model number of LG screen you have and the make and EXACT model number of the set top box.

Good luck.

My tv model magnavox26mf231d/37 shows hdmi is disabled and the hdcp authorization failure.


This could be a problem with the cable box or other set top box and not the TV. It's known to happen with Samsung cable boxes from Cablevision.

First try resetting the TV and set top box by unplugging both. Remove the HDMI cable from the TV and the set top box. Reconnect the HDMI cable. If you are using a Redmere or similar HDMI cable, make sure that the end labeled TV is connected to the TV's HDMI port. (These cables have additional electronics and are not reversible.) Connect the power cord to the set top box and wait 30 seconds to a minute. Then plug in the TV. To ensure the set top box does the correct handshake with the TV, turn on the TV first and set it to the HDMI input. Then turn on the set top box. See if this fixes the issue. (On some cable boxes, this can be a temporary fix. You may need to have the set top box replaced.)

If the above steps don't help, try a different HDMI cable. If that doesn't solve the problem, then the set top box is faulty.

I hope this helps.

Onkyo HDMI + 42 " LG TV = black screen but both work fine with other inputs/ outputs


If using a box disconnect it and the set from power for a few minutes and try again.

Next I would remove connections one at a time with set off and try to see if one is creating this issue. HDMI does not like to be connected when a unit is on or power connected to it.

I am having problems trying to connect my celestial tv PT4252HD to a receiver (amplifier) - tried HDMI = no go. Marian


You need to find the audio output on the TV that matches an audio input of the receiver. The HDMI of the TV is an input only, not an output. For this tv, there is an A/V out and digital (optical) audio out. You will need the appropriate cable.

Some receivers have HDMI in (for a connection to a Blu-Ray player or other set-top box) and then an HDMI out that goes to the TV.

I hope this helps.

I have a sky+ hd box connected to an lg 42LH300 tv through hdmi and an LG HT805SH home cinema through optical cable. Whenever i turn sky over i lose sound and have to turn cinema on/off to sound returns ...


One of the way to connect the whole system is using only HDMI cable version 1.3a. There is audio return channel built into the cable.So you do not have to connect the optic cable.
Sky box to TV using HDMI
LG HT805 to TV using HDMI. Even the Sky box audio will come back to the LG-HT through the audio return path.

Celestial HD Digital Television Receiver DVB8800HD


Normally, there are 2 ways to hook these devices up. One is the component cable that has 3 colors, red white and yellow. these color codes match an aux. input on the TV (or vid1 or vid2) You need to change the TV input to whichever you used by the remote or maybe under Ch2 (4,3,2,vid2, vid1, aux,111,110,etc) The other way is to use the round 4-5 pin S-video instead of the yellow jack, that is self explanetory. The 3rd way and this depends on your TV and receiver is to use the HDMI, composite or DVI cable connection. These are only for Hi def players and will be either a large multi-pinned computer type plug, 5 colored/lead "octopus" cable, or a smaller D shaped high density cable with the row of contacts inside the plug. In any case you need to tell the TV which input you are using.
Once you get the TV to show a picture of the receiver, then you autoprogram the receiver with the remote under setup or other menu.

Hdmi and audio


It may be the top of set box.. Most times the sound and picture are auto detected by the set when HDMI is used. Both sound and video are carried in a HDMI cable but not with a S video cable. Try another HDMI cable *** dont buy the expensive one the tv don't care if they cost $125 or $25.
