My new Telefunken PVR, 500GB HD TWIN HD TUNER suddenly stopped working

My newly bought telefunken personal video recorder 500GB Hard Drive Twin HD Tuner suddenly stopped working. Yesterday, it worked fine, but when I checked it today I noticed that it didn't turn itself off after recording as usual. It seem to be on all the time and I couldn't turn it off, the remote control didn't respond to any selection, couldn't exit, menu didn't respond, in fact, nothing responded. I changed the batteries thinking maybe that was the problem, but it didn't make any difference at all. I simply couldn't turn the unit off, nothing seem to work no matter what button on the remote I selected. The only way to turn it off was to unplug the cable, but when I plugged the cable back again, it was still showing the unit as on, without doing anything. I have only used this item for about 7 weeks, and am very disappointed. I live on the Gold Coast, Australia.

I just called, if I mail it back, they will send a replacement. I also mentioned I have a VHS & DVD stuck in it, and was told to have it removed by a repair shop, and they would reimburse me up to $20.

SOURCE: I have a Daewoo Twin Tuner hard disc PVR with a firmware

I had one with the same firmware faults - in the end I had to return it as Daewoo had no plans to update the firmware. When I returned it it joined a huge pile of them in Currys.

Why does my pvr keep freezing


Sorry can't help on this. Presumably you've switched off/on at mains and checked all connections secure. Would a factory reset help, see tips how to do on fixya, although not sure if you would lose library data.

Panasonic troubleshooting


I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
OR
Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
Here are the unit features
Main Features:
DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
HDMI Digital Output
Digital Audio Output
CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
EPG searching and auto download
Recorded program edit
Parental Control
Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
Built-in WiFi
Network Playback
USB 2.0 Interface

No guide data available


There is no mention of a BUSH support center and so you must check with the dealership from where the product was sourced.
