Question about Projection Televisions

4 Answers

I have a VCR tape that I cannot eject from the unit. The green timer light flashes. I do not have the original remote; I have used a Sony remote (RM-V18A). This tape has been stuck in the unit for quite awhile. I would like to remove it (to have access to the tape) and I recently was given another VHS tape that I would like to play. I have reviewed the manual. I am concerned, since the manual notes that the time can be set up to Dec. 31, 2007 that this machine is locked up with no options. Please help me with a rescue! Thanks!

    If you pressing the eject button dont work then, you will have to take the top case off and look for a gear that controls the ejector carrier, but be sure that the proper gear will release the tape and returns it to the cassette.

Hi

If it's a front loading unit, then open the door and use a pen knife to gently pull the tape out enough for you to grab it. Pull it out just enough (about 2 inches) and look under the tape. There will be a little pen hole about an 2 inches from the edge of the tape between the spindles.

Use a pen or a pencil in the hole to disengage the spindle lock. Then you can gently pull the tape case out without any hassle. You will have to hold the pen in there while you are pulling the tape out to keep the spindles disengaged!

This gets the tape case out, but the tape may still be stuck inside. It may be stuck on a pinch roller. Use a small flashlight and a slim object to gently free tape from what ever has caught hold of the tape. This is the best way without having to take apart the tv.

Hi!

Try turning offf the unit and when it turns on then press eject button for 4-5 times. If that doesn't help you need to open the top panel of the unit to remove the tape.

If the VCR tape is stuck inside, then you will need to take part the unit to remove the tape without damaging the VCR.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?


Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

TY-LA1001 Timer reset

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

Hi,

Most likely you have turned on the sleep function. 2nd button from the left on the top of the remote hand unit. Keep pressing until "sleep off" appears on-screen.

Or

Timer in user's menu is activated to turn off TV a specific time. Go to timer menu and adjust timer, then push cancel on the remote, this should reset timer to zero. Same with current time, adjust and select cancel, this should reset current time.

If you do not have the original remote, you are in trouble. Service tech will have remote.

The mechanism on VCR are complicated. You can open it (make sure its not plugged in). Try to rotate the motor manually that is responsible for the loading mechanism. So that you can eject the tape. Or if you want you can just take out the whole VCR mechanism so that your TV will not shut off. if you are succesfull in ejecting the tape manually and also pay close attention to the mechanism. Do not put another tape in there unles you find out what is causing the mechanical prblem.

Magnavox TV: Somehow the record button on the remote will not record VCR. It ejects the tape and does not record. Please help. Thank you.


Try Using a new VHS tape. If the new tape ejects when press recording, the recording switch inside your VCR could be defective.
Let me know if you require further assistance.

Looking for codes for universal rca rcr430s remote control


You can find the remote control codes for difrent brands of devices from
http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-vcr.shtml#dvd

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.
  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.


2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash radidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

I push the tape into the Vcr it tries to play it then it simply ejects it after about 5 seconds.


This is a safety feature of the machine. If it does not detect tape movement, the unit will shutdown and eject the tape.

Mitsubishi WS73713 - Now working - Timer light flashing.


My Mitsubishi WS-73713 had the same blinking green timer light problem and would not turn on. I tried the reset button and unplugging power to no avail. I found that by simultaneously holding down the remote control "power" button and "volume" button for about 30 seconds the blinking light would go out and a solid green light would come on. Even though the solid green light came on the unit would still not power up. After doing this several times however the unit did finally power up in a normal mode and appears to be working again. It's worth trying before calling in for an expensive repair. PS - From here on out I'm sticking with SONY or Toshiba sets which have given be great service.
