Question about Televison & Video
In the middle of a programme my auntie's TV said there was a signal error, a short while later the programme resumed. Now when she turns on her TV she cannot get anything. i have checked her digibox and it appears to be working (greenlight) but I cannot access a menu, The screen on AV2 displays a dialogue box 180 xxXpanded TV Data Service. Can anyone offer a solution as to how I sort this for my 86 year old auntie.

Does it do so on all tapes? It sounds like you are experiencing a tracking or tape path problem. You might try taking the top cover off, then cleaning the video head. Info is available on the 'net on how to do this. If problem remains, play a tape and see it is wandering up/down across video head. See if any of the tape guides are broken or bent, causing tape wandering. you may also have a problem in the electronics, perhaps in the servo circuitry, which has to do with careful control of tape speed, video head rotational speed, and certain other parameters. If electronics are bad, then VCR is likely a tosser, unless it is a high $ rig. Most electronics are disposable these days, unfortunately.

Solution that worked for me:
Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.
Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.

Below is solution from an earlier post, I'm trying it out now as I have the same issue, system bought in Jan 09. I have received and installed the latest update from Bose recently, now this. Will call Bose tomorrow to fix if they can't they will be getting it back.
We disabled the power cord from the back of the media console (where the HDMI cables connect) and left it off for a minute or two.
Powered the media console back on and it is working as expected.
Was told by the Bose tech that the common reason for this issue is due to the use of the HDMI cables that have a propritary security protocol that is used between the media console and the component it is attached to (ie TV, Cable/Sat, BluRay ...ect).
I asked if there was a BIOS upgrade if it was indeed a "handshaking" issue and was told there was not one (yet).
If one becomes available, it will be shipped via mail on a CD\DVD that can be used in a CD\DVD player that is connected to the media console using the HDMI cable.

Get some double-screened satellite cable and fit a female TV plug to it (or a male plug with an adapter). Connect it to RF Output 2 at the rear of your Digibox. Fit a TV plug to the other end and plug it into your TV.
Temporarily disconnect the aerial feed from the Digibox aerial socket. Switch the Digibox on to get a picture on your main TV. The Sky Digibox normally sends its signal out on UHF channel 68 so go to the second TV and tune it to 68 (or tune it till it finds the Sky picture).
Now plug the aerial cable back into the Digibox. If there is now interference on the Sky picture on the second TV (or on the terrestrial channels) your Sky signal on 68 is causing interference. Press [services] 401 [select]* and set the RF output to a different UHF channel number. You need to connect it via a Scart lead on your main TV in order to see the menu.
*In the new EPG (April 2009) it's [services] 001 [select]
Try each RF output channel number in turn (21 - 69) and retune the second TV until you get clean pictures on the terrestrial channels and the Sky channel. Also check the picture from the VCR (if connected).
This is just a brief overview. If you need a real in-depth explanation you should read the "Piping TV Around the House" Ebook by satcure.
