Yes, it could be caused by shorted speaker wires, or even a shorted speaker. But the wires being reversed (+/-) would NOT cause it.

The overload is caused by the speaker wires touching, crossed or incorrectly hooked up to speakers - positive and negative.

Windows won't roll up and down and wipers stopped working at the same time. The blinkers stopped shortly at the same time but they are working again. We thought it was a fuse problem but the fuses seem to...


Do you know anything about automotive electronics ? The GEM - generic electronic control module is in charge of turning on the wipers an control the power windows . Would think this a fuse problem . Computer problem maybe , the first step in diagnosing a problem like this would be to hook up a factory or professional scanner an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Don't think about replacing the GEM module ,if you don't know how to test it's electrical circuits an check for codes . Can set a number of codes !

You can take the box to your nearest Comcast office and swap it out st the front counter for free. If it is indeed the box malfunctioning, this will get your service working again without having to pay for a service call.

No Sound on a Motorola DCP-501


You don't say what else works. Have you tried it with FM to eliminate external source causes? Does your TV get audio passed through to it? That would establish that there is program material to be amplified. Headphones work?

The following is from the User Guide -

Check to make sure that each speaker has been properly connected to the
speaker output jacks on the rear panel of the DCP501.
�� Check that the speakers are working by utilizing the Test Tone function as
described in the “Operation” section.
�� Verify that the DCP501 has not been placed in MUTE mode.
�� Check that the volume control on the DCP501 has been adjusted to an
appropriate listening volume.
�� Verify that the DCP501 is set to the correct source (CATV, VCR, DVD, Tape,
etc).
�� If the front panel displays O V E R L O A D , one of two things has happened:
1 If the DCP501 detects the speakers have a short circuit, it shuts down
the amplifiers. Switch the DCP501 off, remove the short circuit, and turn
the DCP501 back on. The DCP501 should now work as normal. If
O V E R L O A D is still displayed, a short circuit condition remains.
2 If the maximum amplifier output power is exceeded, the DCP501 shuts
down the amplifiers. Turn down the volume a little and switch the
DCP501 off and then switch the DCP501 back on and the DCP501
should now work as normal. If O V E R L O A D is still displayed, turn the
volume down some more.

The Speaker Setup menu has a Speaker Reset (to default settings) option.

DVD Player won't work


DVD's: does it display any kind of error? All DVD's?

To your second question.

The manual explains cable and TV hookup for CABLE but there is no mention of off-air TV tuning.

If you don't have the manual go to:
http://www.retrevo.com/support/Motorola-DCP501-Receivers-manual/id/393bh936/t/2/ and register to get it. It's free.

Motorola DCP-501 and PPV


It takes registration of the unit to receive them and it would be unethical and illegal to post a way to hack them here...

The clear protective film on the DCP501 display must be removed and transferred to the inside back cover of your
DCP501 Home Theater System User Guide. The Unit Address and Serial Number found on the protective film is
required for activation of your DCP501 cable TV receiver by your cable TV service provider.

Just got my phantom DCP-501


Try Motorola’s Customer Support Center at 1-866-668-2271 or 1-866-MOT-BCS1. You didn't disconnect the short cable between the RF IN and TO RF IN ports, right?
