Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have a Karaoke "The Singing Machine" model STVD-919 that no longer transfers the camera image to the screen on the Karaoke unit but will transfer the image to a TV when the video out is connected from the Karaoke machine to a TV. Clearly, the camera is still working but for some reason when hitting "camera" on the remote, it does not send the image to the screen on the Karaoke machine.

    I need someone with a better understanding of this problem, i.e. someone with specific knowledge of this particular Karaoke machine...answers provided not at all helpful as they are "generic" and not applicable to question asked.

  • stephen265 Dec 18, 2008

    The screen on the Karaoke machine works just fine for TV or DVD...the problem is that the camera image will not transfer to the screen when the camera function button is depressed on the remote. The camera, again, is functional as it will transfer to a TV attached to the Karaoke with the video RCA jack cable.

  • stephen265 Dec 18, 2008

    The display menu works just fine and all features are accessible except "V-chip" which requires a 4 digit passcode. Not aware of ever setting-up any passcode nor if access to this part of the menu would be helpful in resolution of the problem.

  • stephen265 Dec 18, 2008

    Ah, must be the problem..no diode blink when camera button depressed. Could this be related to batteries? Seems to activate all other remote features. Not a "techy" so wonder why remote works without the diode blinking.

  • stephen265 Dec 18, 2008

    Any particular solution you would recommend. I have some automotive grease and wax remover solvent as well as various thinners, Isopropol alcohol, etc.

  • stephen265 Dec 18, 2008

    Thanks so very much. If cleaning doesn't work will see if new remote available from manufacturer.

  • stephen265 Dec 18, 2008

    Again, thank you for your assistance. You zeroed right in on the problem.

  • stephen265 Dec 19, 2008

    oops...I didnt' really understand the test method you suggested. NOW I see the light blinking in the screen of the TV with the Karaoke machine connected to the TV...I was looking at the little light with the naked eye and didn't realize I was to look into the tv screen. Also...when the camera is set to "off" the picture from the lens still shows in the tv...any other suggestions?

  • stephen265 Dec 19, 2008

    I have been able to verify that the infra red globe on the remote is working. I wasn't clear on what you were asking me to do in the instructioin using a digital camera, etc. Later, however, with the Karaoke machine connected to a TV (video out from back of Karaoke to vodeop om pm TV) when depressing the camera button on the remote of the Karaoke machine, I can see the light blinking in the screen of the tv when the remote is pointed at the tv screen. So, obviously,the remote is fully functional. Additionally, the camera on the karaoke machine is also working because the camera is putting my image onto the tv screen. So I'm back to the beginning. I just don't know why the camera on the karaoke machine is not sending the image to the screen on the karaoke machine. It must be some kind of wiring connection that has failed inside the karaoke machine that alllows the camera to send an image to a tv but not to it's own screen.

    OK, seems camera button on remote got bad. Please check remote infra red diode blinks when you press camera button?
    you can check it by using any camcorder or digital camera, just see remote front ir diode in camera and press remote button, IR diode will blink.

    see IR diode position in remote, face this front side towards camera and press remote button to check, does it work or not.

    its not related to batteries as other buttons are working.
    remote switch has carbon coating on its PCB that can be dirty / clogged and tech person can open it to clean carbon coating carefully. I hope remote button will start work.

    but you can give try by placing new batteries in remote.

    use alcohol to clean remote circuit board. other liquids can damage carbon coating.

  • Shahid Electronics
    Shahid Electronics Dec 18, 2008

    well, if camera button on remote doesn't work after cleaning, then new remote is the only option.

    Hello,
    Please unplug singing machine from AC Outlet for 10-15 minutes, replug it and power up again.

    Press TV/AV/DVD button or TV/DVD button to switch to DVD mode first. Then press CAMERA button to camera mode.

    If still no joy then TV tech person requires to inspect it physically to diagnose what could be wrong in it.

    Thank you.

The first thing I would check is the remote control, see if the remote lost the code and isn't switching. I think that if it's not that, then the screen in the machine itself is gone unless a wire came off. If that's the case then if you have a warantee now would be the time to use it. I enclosed the instruction and troubleshooting guide http://www.singingmachine.com/download/Instruction_Manual/STVD-919.pdf good luck

These are rare model with a limited service support and it is important that you need to get this part ONLY if the failed unit has a universal replacement which must be checked physically with any electronic showroom. If this is not properly confirmed please do not spend any more money on it as a replacement also can be short lived if the quality of spare is poor.

Hi Troy,
Have you inserted the mic in the right input? Make sure it is not inserted in the headphones input. Besides that take a look at the display menu and make sure the volume is turned on.

Cd & g drive quite working


I had the same problem. The fix is a bit unorthadox. I removed the 4 screws holding the circuit board that is mounted directly under the CD player. Now with the board hanging free the unit works fine.
Good luck.

I want to get the video feed of my family singing to show on my TV and not on the screen of the karaoke machine. I have a Singing Machine STVD-919


Ok from the looks of it... the three RCA plugs on the bottom left are the video out audio (right&left) out use the video out and plug that into your video in on your tv then for sound do the same for the right&left audio
