Thomson DT16300 Freezing problems

Among the many problems I have had with the machine (most of which I have found a way round) is freezing of reception.

Yesterday and today I have found that after an hour or so the programme just freezes in mid speech and has to be re-booted. This works for a short time and then happens again. This has also resulted in recording being abandoned. I noticed that the time between this freezing was getting shorter as the night went on.

Any suggestions please

Can anyone help me solve a problem with my Thomson DT16300? The orange light stays on. The fan comes on and off at the back. There is no picture and I can not programme it. I have tried rebooting but can't get it working apart from the orange light coming on and the fan starting up.

Why is my samsung pc freezing when I turn it on?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you
A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

It keeps locking up


I had a similar problem before mine completely crashed. Make sure you back up your data and have a look at the space you have left on each of your three partitions. Try to delete any unused track space before recording again.

Disk freezes after about an hour


This sounds like what happened to me. The problem I've read is that the decoder chip is overheating. The chip is on the circuit board just under and to the side of the disc tray.

A quick fix is to take the top of the case off and give it room to breath while your using it. If it still freezes some, put a small fan blowing on it. This worked for me, but then I went all the way and put a hole in the top and a fan that runs off the power of the system.

Frozen hard drive


If you have a Thomson DT16300, here's a handy fix that address freeze ups, lack of reception and problems on your Hard Disk:

goto MENU screen
goto SETUP screen
goto HELP screen
At HELP screen, Enter 1397 - this accesses the engineer panel - you can reformat the HDD in this menu - you will lose all recorded programmes and planned recordings but it clears locked or corrupted files

OR - at the HELP screen, press the GREEN button

On the lower half of the screen youwill see 3 options:

Blue - Reformat HDD - clears all the memory/HDD - useful if you have a corrupted file - you will lose all recorded programmes though

Red - reset the whole box to factory settings - good if you have a locked box or reception problems or cannto scan for new channels. It goes back to when you bought the box, so you will have to input favourites and planned recordings again

Yellow - Software revert - allows you to go back to the previous software driver - you may lose new functions, but you can always restore it back again using the same feature

Read dvix


As you know, this machine should support div-x as standard, in fact it should play just about anything except new HD disc formats.

So you put in a data disc with dix-x files, what happens?

Freezing


sounds like a bad solder joint that is cracked...as GPX heats up, the crack starts to get bigger and cutting off electric circuit, then cool down closes the gap and current resumes. First try breaking and then making all possible connections outside then inside unit. Then, if no success, remove the circuit board and clean it with alcohol and brush then carefully look at each solder joint with a magnifying glass. If one found, simply re-solder it.
