SOURCE: Vizio TV won't come on

I ran into the same problem within 14 months of ownership. Seems the expiration of my warranty conveniently coincided with the expiration of the Visio television...I am now the proud owner of a $1000 brick. A call to support ended with a repair quote of over $500! A painful lesson, but Vizio will not be seeing any more of my money...I'll spend that $500 on a QUALITY television.

SOURCE: UVERSE REMOTE CAN NOT TURN OFF VIZIO 42' TV

The documentation that came with my U-Verse equipment doesn't list Vizio products, but I have been using 1343 which I saw suggested on another website. AT&T's support site has a new code list (http://www.att.com/support_media/images/pdf/uverse/set-up-code-list.pdf) showing Vizio under the TV section as 1489 and in the HDTV section as 1429, 1433, or 1439.

None of the codes listed for Vizio work with my Vizio LCD(model VO370M), but the 1343 code I've been using successfully is listed in the new list as an LG HDTV code.

SOURCE: No Picture

I called Vizio, was told I needed a hard reset, and this fixed my problem: I unplugged the TV; held down the on button for one minute, then plugged it back in. It works fine now.

How long is it safe to pause a Samsung smart tv for. My husband says I will ruin it by pausing it


How big is its hard drive memory ?
When you pause live tv the tv starts recording the live tv on the hard drive it has. So a few hours would be normal but a few days would use up hard drive space. It deletes the recorded tv as you watch it back.

What do you do when your pause and rewind are not working on live tv programs?


Did they work before? For example, I bought my son a Samsung TV and the remote had rewind, pause etc. on the remote but they did not work. This is because the smart TV did not record the live image to allow this feature as it did not have any built in hard drive and I had to add a memory stick or hard drive into the USB port on the TV to allow the rewind, record and pause to work.

Purchased a Technika Model 19-220. 8 months ago never used the DVD recorder because we never had freeserve. Now we are connected to Freeserve the DVD will play DVD's but no accept blanks for recording...


Thanks for posting to Fixya and it is my pleasure to guide you.

"Will not accept blanks for recording it says No Disc."

from Technika manual: Start Quote
VCR/DVD Recorder; I have connected the TV to my VCR or DVD Recorder via SCART but it is not recording. In addition to connecting via SCART, you should connect the aerial cable from the wall socket to your VCR/DVD Recorder and another aerial cable from the VCR/DVD Recorder to the TV." Also; "Check the DVD is a region 2 disc - to change the region of the DVD player, refer to section 'Changing Regions'.

Note: USB record function is only avilable in Digital/Freeview TV/Radio mode. Due to copyright laws and illegal copying/recording it is not possible to record to/from any other input/output source.

DVD MENU: To access this menu, press [MENU] button on the remote control. TV System - Choose from the following options. NTSC; Normally used for discs from North America, Japan etc.
Auto; For both NTSC and PAL. This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
Tip: This television contains one TV tuner, therefore it can only record the channel you are watching or record one channel while the television is in standby mode.

Tip: This TV/DVD player is pre-set to play Region 2 DVDs.
End Quote

You can not record to a DVD, according to their manual. That is why you get the no disc error. It does not have the play sector at the beginning of the DVD. You can record to USB Flash Drive however.

Quote:
USB RECORD - DIGITAL/FREEVIEW MODE
Built into this television is a USB record facility. This function is available in Digital/Freeview mode when used in conjunction with a compatible USB memory stick or USB Hard drive. The benefi ts of this are as follows:
• Pause live TV/Radio and then playback, fast forward and rewind (up to live TV)
• One button record, if you decide you want to record the current programme
• Easy programmable recording from the 7 day TV Guide
• Record TV/Radio and watch/listen back on your computer/laptop
Due to the nature of the product, it is necessary to use a high speed USB memory stick (as the TV reads from and writes to the memory stick at the same time, some memory sticks may not be suitable). You can purchase high speed memory sticks from some computer stores, alternatively, we have a selection of tested and compatible memory sticks available to purchase directly from the helpline/web site. These are available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB. (Please check the web site/helpline for latest specifications and prices). End Quote

Good luck and please post back that you this has solved your problem and click thumbs up of your success or that I can be more helpful.

My Thomson Top up TV box will not record. I go to the TV guide, press the R button. It then takes me to 'Planned Recordings' list. I press R again and the programme I want to record disapperas. I get...


Sounds to me like your hard drive is full. Do you use the topup tv part of the box? If not, deselect all the topup tv channels. This will free up a significant amount of drive. Failing that, you'll have to delete some of your programs, sorry!
To deselect topup tv channels;
Go into the menu option, Customise Top Up TV Anytime, and de-activate all the selected channels

Conect sky remote to sky+ box


Hello Jolene725,

If you are using a standard remote / HD remote for a sky + then you will have to press the following buttons:
TV
SELECT + i (flashes twice)
1
SELECT

You now should be able to use the standard remote with the Sky+ box.
Just bare in mind that using the standard remote you dont have the buttons to pause, record, etc.

Hope this has helped you out. If so then please leave a thumbs up

Cheers Little Dish Fitter

Directv DVR vs Tivo


I found the manual for that model online, and according to it, the "Live TV" button should function exactly the same way your old Tivo did.

If it's not working correctly, you may want to contact the manufacturer, assuming it's still under warranty.

Hello! My Philips DVDR5350H/05 randomley records for 6 hours. The only way to stop this, once the recording has started, is to go into the system menu and select the option to remove the time shift...


Hello. This is not a fault. The DVDR5350H's Hard Drive (called Time Shift Buffer) begins recording (for up to six hours) as soon as the unit it switched on and only clears the 'temporary' recordings when it is switched off or you switch to 'Cam' mode on the remote control.

Like Sky+ and Freeview+, the continuous recoding enables you to save, pause and rewind live TV (this could also apply to Freeview or any source that you may have connected to the EXT1 and EXT2 SCART sockets. In other words, if you are watching TV or anything connected to the 5350 while it is switched on you can keep it without even having pressed record in the first place (pressing OK on the remote control will show you how).

It is normal for all HDD recorders with a 'pause live TV' function to record whether asked to or not.
