Display flickers or doesn't work

I have a sanyo drw-500 and recently the display light started flickering then just didnt work at all. it started when i turned it on and the loading display started flickering really bad then it went out all together, but only when i play a movie or record, the clock works but then it will start flickering. i unplug it and all seems to work fine for a few minutes then it starts all over again. it still records fine but no display on the machine. any thoughts on this.

Have you set the Sanyo to "antenna" or to "cable" ?
If you've tried one setting, try the other.

Record mode doesn't work. Information is disrupted. play back is fine have not tried to fix

It could have some garbage, in the processor do to a small power surge, and if you leave it unplug for 40Min., from the wall, it should reset back to normal.

Can we record with our sanyo drw 500 and a digital tv? If so, how do we do this?

If cable/SAT box, hook-up that box video/sound output to DVD video/sound input. If no cable/SAT box, hook-up cable from wall into antenna/cable in on DVD and tune DVD to channel wished, and hook-up DVD TV antenna out to TV antenna in. If DVD has no antenna/cable in, TV must have video/sound output. Hook to DVD video/sound input. Hope this helps.
