29" LG Flatron TV bought in 2007. On starting TV,

That kind of prolem is commonly caused by dried electrolytic capacitor on the low voltage power supply. Leaky capacitor affect the performance of the B+ once sense by the processor it will automatically shuts down the unit.
I've advice you to send it to qualified service center to isolate the problem because oscillator is also going to check for normal operation. This is quite technical and not DIY.

Thanks for using fixya.

Please rate my help.

Quick things to check on tv's and, monitors

remove power; remove the cover: with a multimeter on "ohms" check the fuses they will be identified on the circuit boards as: F-1, F-2 etc. look over the circuit board for burned resistors and, other components i.e. leaking "domed" capacitors, next: repower safely then: using component coolant from radioshack cool the i.c.'s as you stand behind the tv / monitor while watching the monitor using a mirror to see the monitor screen (do not touch the open monitor case.) if one i.c. suddenly makes the unit work: heat it with a hairdryer on "warm" to duplicate the failure before you replace the faulty component.

I bought a Tevion 28216ALD quite some time ago and I've now been trying to get it set up. I've set up the dish according to the angles appropriate to my postcode, such that I get a signal reading of 63%,...

Hi I have the same issue. As a test I unplugged the cable to the dish and it still read 63% So I'm assuming it's a duff box or my cable is wired badly and it's not getting anything from the dish. Did you get anywhere with this?

Just purchased RCA HD Tv. What is the RCA code

We would be happy to help you with getting your DISH Network remote to control your RCA TV. We're going to start by pressing and holding the TV button located on the top of your remote until all mode button back lights come on, and then release. Use the number buttons to enter the codes for your RCA TV here are some of the codes we currently have: 503, 627, 633, 725, and 505. Press the pound (#) button. To check that the code works try several different functions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate the TV. Remember that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this is the case, try the other codes listed for your RCA TV until you find one that is compatible with it.

We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

No sound through Iomega Pro HD on the TV, but works on laptop

I have a similar problem. When I first used it, it was OK but one day after a week or so, I've lost sound. When I put the volume of the TV to the maximum, I can hear it but it is still faint. Another problem/dissatisfaction I have is that the high resolution pictures are not displayed as good as my similar resolution PC monitor. I am dissapointed in that regard but I will still keep the device if I can fix the sound. I will call the tech support tomorrow.
