Open Question

OTA displayed wont work at all

OTA displayed after it tried to do a software update which just came back saying 'no updates' it did work for a while then it just won't work at all, if I hit home button to try and watch something i've recoded. I've tried everything from unplugging all cables into from switched off at the wall, also all TV cables, i've reprogrammed TV channels and tried to do a reset which comes back with 'no devices found' message. The machine now just has hello scrolling and it tries to power up every now and again as it does when you switch to watch something on dvd recorder but nothing further happens. Any help greatly appreciated.

    Hallo, I have the same problem with LG RHT497H Dvd recorder. On Friday I tried to switch on the DVD Recorder, but only the Hallo message appears, then after 5 seconds, the OTA code appears and nothing happens.

SOURCE: Please Insert disk?

Hi Tool4theman, I have a CD/DVD r/w drive and it only says NEC DVD +RW. That is just the text the manufacturer has embedded in the device, not the results of any diagnostics. You've mentioned what program you are playing DVDs with but what are you playing your audio CDs with and are they commercial audio CDs? Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Its meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives in the past. When prompted for a blank disk us a CD. http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know how it goes and don't forget to rate the posting.

If you've disconnected the speakers and the fault is still showing then the fault is internal with the Amplifier and it's shutting down to protect itself from further damage.

Your only solution is to remove the cover and have a look at repairing it yourself or take it to a repair shop.

How do I upgrade my samsung galaxy tab 2 10.1


You go into settings, scroll down to the bottom where it says about tablet. Click on about tablet, there should be System Update at the top click it, it will check for a OTA update if there is one and download it. It should automatically check for an update, and say there's an OTA update available in your task bar.

XBox Kinect says insufficient power I've tried unplugging and plugging into a single outlet but same problem. What can i try next?


Red light on the Kinect sensor Last Modified 16/05/2011
kinectred_300px.gif If the light on your Kinect sensor is red, the sensor might not be connected properly or your console software might need updating. You might also receive the following error:

The Kinect Sensor has insufficient power (C0051202)
Here's what to do to fix the problem:
update_error.jpg Solution 1: Update your console software

  1. Insert a Kinect game disc.
  2. Start the game from the Xbox Dashboard.
  3. If your console software needs updating, you will see the following message:


    Update Required: An update has been found, to apply this update you must restart your console.

  4. Select Yes, Restart to install the update.
If you still get the same error message, try the next solution.? ? ? Solution 2: Check the cables ? ?new360cableconnect.jpg

Xbox 360 S console
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Unplug the sensor from the console, and then plug the sensor cable into the AUX port on the back of the console.

    Important Remove the power/USB adapter cable if your Kinect sensor came with one.
  3. Turn on the console.
? ?xbox360cablekinect.jpg

Original Xbox 360 console
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Make sure the power cord is plugged into a working electrical outlet.
  3. Make sure the USB connector is plugged into the back of the console.

  4. The light located near the middle of the split cable should be green.
    kinectcablegreenlight_300px.gif
    No green light? Try plugging the cable into another outlet to make sure the cable is working properly. If you still do not see a green light, your cable needs to be replaced. Contact Xbox Support.
  5. Turn on the console.
If these solutions do not solve the problem, the sensor needs to be repaired. To start the online repair process, go to myservice.xbox.com.

I want to update new device software


janardhan45,
The first thing to realise is that you may not be able to update your phone's software.
The best thing to do is to follow this quick [guide] on Nokia's website, which will help you discover if you can update your phone's software over the air (OTA).
