I have a motorola vip1200 satellite box and it

I have a motorola vip1200 satellite box and it fell. Now all there lights are on (link, hd, and record) and it won't power off without unplugging it, and all I'm getting is a black screen. I've checked all the cords and plugs and everythings hooked up fine. Can I fix this problem on my own?

Does it belong to a Cable or Satellite company? Just ask them to look at it and/or change it.

If it is yours, it may be that the fall has dislodged the mainboard, power unit or switch unit. You need to get inside it and check for boards or components that are not properly inserted/located.

SOURCE: Sharp Aquos LC42D62U with blank black screen, good

Unfortunately not really, it is the video board of the LCD that has failed, it is a major repair to say the least. You can check with a local repair shop to estimate the repair, but it will be spendy :(. I'm so sorry about the bad news there, but that's definitely what it is. If you happened to purchase the TV with a major credit card (not a debit card) there is a good chance it may still be under the free extended warranty most credit cards place on electronics. Please contact your credit card company to inquire if they do this, and they will be able to file the claim and get you a refund for the TV.
Thanks Tim

SOURCE: my tv won't power on after lightning struck

Check the fuses on the power board. there is one fuse on primary side and one on secondary side.
Take of back panel and follow plug into the tv.where it ends is the power board.always use caution.the capacitors in there hold high voltage even after unplugged for a couple of days.Discharge capacitors before servicing the board.

Toshiba Satellite won't start up when AC plugged in

Try another Cord/Charger to verify the Cord, AC jack. If you plug in the AC cord after starting on battery, does the battery charge? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust Advanced power setting to your preference.

Lite on - hd-a740gx

The LG HD-A740GX does not have a digital tuner. The analog tuner included depended on the country of sale; it has a PAL (UK) or NTSC (US) tuner. You'll need a set-top box (digital-to-analog tuner or cable or satellite box) to provide the signal for the unit to record anything.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have a Motorola VIP1200 set top U-verse converter and a display with SVGA and HDMI. The VIP1200 seems to have a couple of connection options (S-video and a HDMI port). Is connecting them simply a matter...

S-video is only an enhanced picture (video) signal and, must be used with two rca cables: red=left channel sound, white=right channel sound.
HDMI requires an HDMI cable from a HDMI capable (must have an HDMI connector ) cable / satellite receiver to a HDMI TV (also must have an HDMI connector.

How, if possible, can the USB ports on the front AND back of the Motorola VIP1200/1216 TV Receiver boxes be used? And for what?

I think they were fitted for 'future enhancements'. I believe they have no function as yet.
