Found out it was a low battery. We had charged it for several hours, but it was apparently low. It is supposed to show the low battery symbol, but it never did. We put it new AA batteries instead of the power pack and it worked just fine. Thanks

Cm7000pal dvr stuck in wizard on continue in searching for channels seams to load on hdd then goes to continue


I have 3 of these 7000pals and 2 have done a similar thing, one of them did it twice. After the Loading Channel Master screen hangs for a time, they would restart. Then the same cycle would keep repeating. It seems like after years of adding and deleting timers, the DVR's software gets "confused". I've noticed that twice it happened on the hour just as a program timer started while I was watching a program through the DVR. ZAP...Locked up! The power button would not even work to turn it off.

The steps below fixed all three instances of this failure.

To unlock the Channel Master CM7000PAL DVR:

1. Unplug the recorder from the wall outlet and DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA. Now plug it back into the wall power outlet.(This will keep the recorder from freezing and rebooting)

2. let it go thru it's normal bootup, tv guide search, etc.

3. When you are able to, hit MENU and then go up to TIMERS. Delete all of the record timers. Unplug it, reconnect the antenna, and plug it back in.

4. After a now a proper bootup, re-program you timers and you will be good to go.

5. And the best thing is, all of your pre-recorded shows will still be there on the hard drive.

I would suggest that you do a yearly "TIMER CLEAN" to avoid this trouble in the future.

There a a few things which could cause this:

1) You have the radio set to an unprogrammed channel.

2) You have a bad, low or defective battery. (Try switching batteries with the other unit and see if the problem goes away.)

3) Your radio needs repair.

4) Your radio has busy-channel-lock-out activated and you are trying to transmit on a frequency which has activity in your area.

Netgear wireless router wgr614 not transmitting


Yes changing channel will make a diffeence most of the time for this kind of issue. The reason is there could be multiple routers or interference in that area locking to the same frequency.

Motorola Talkabout FV700 not transmitting nor receiving


To troubleshoot: Unlock your keypad lock, then reprogram your radios to the following settings. (Check function after each change)
1) Shut off the Interference Eliminator (set to zero).
2) Turn off the Qt filter.
3) Vox setting to off.

By shutting off all the "bells and whistles" of the radio, you will take it back to being just simply on a frequency. If your radios do not communicate with one another then, or with your friend's radios, you have radio which is failing to operate.

If the radios do work in this simple mode. One by one add the special features back until you discover the culprit.

Channel keeps changing


It sounds like a stuck button or switch. What happens when you hit the channel DOWN, does it still keep scrolling down?
Is this with or without the remote?
Have you tried it with the remote and or the TV?

Let me know whether you are changing the channels with the remote or the buttons on the tv and I can try to give you a couple more suggestions.

After programming my new universal remote, the tv keeps changing chanels! wont stop!


you need to program your remote control. take the battaries out. and maually turn the tv on. then hit the source you want to view. for example, I want to control the tv set. I push, code search and hold it then push the source button and then release the source button and then release the code search button. now, aim at the tv and then keep pressing power button till it goes off. when the tv is off, hit return or set or something like that.( every remote has different calling for it but still the same function) it should work. try it and let me know.
