    k, sorry. i did download the latest code, i normally get my codes from the viewsat website, (through a friend via email) and this last time i got it from the website 'totalfta.com.' and after that, it's been nothing but problems. my receiver did work for a few hours, then the programming started to freeze. there was another code out, so i tried to download it, and that's when i would get 'FAIL' after i download, and when i turn the viewsat on, i can't get past the 4 lines. i think i got like a virus from a bad set of codes. that's my initial thought. i've had no problem, but i got impatient for my friend to send me the new code, so i found it online from what i thought was a reliable source. but who knows. thanks for your response!!

    sorry, i should be more clear. my problem isn't with toshiba, i just couldn't find the category for my fta receiver.

  • dafunkster Mar 02, 2009

    hey, thanks for the response. i just tried to do a factory reset. when it is finished, right after it reaches 100%, it says 'FAIL' i think that i need to fix the fail problem before i can move on. do any of you know how to do that??

RescueTechLA: He (or she) is referring to an FTA satellite box.

You need to hook that box up to your PC or laptop by way of a serial cable and run a factory reset/factory file reload. That friend you allude to could be very helpful in respect to this issue if they are familiar with FTA.

    I hear they talk about that receiver model over at ftatalk. Beyond that I can't be of much assistance.

Those four lines are usually hardware related.

When you say you tried to download the latest "fix".

What "fix" are you talking about?

Potentially dead Nintendo DS lite LCD screen. (bottom)


Hey, I can help you.


Yes, the Bottom LCD is dead. You will have to exchange it.

Below I have two links you should follow through. One to purchase a bottom LCD for a very cheap price and the other will show you how to replace the bottom LCD.


REMEMBER.. To place a plastic pad under the bottom lcd so it doesn't ground out the board. Forgetting to do this could potentially blow a fuse and you will have to replace those!!
