SOURCE: TV suddenly doesn't respond to Sony remote & power button on Satellite remote.

I am having the same problem with the "initial setup" screen flashing repeatedly/ intermittently. It's not a problem with the remote. In the research I have done online, it seems as though this is a common/known problem with the Wegas that will require a service visit. Apparently the problem is a defective receiver chip. The best thread I found is at: http://www.agoraquest.com/viewtopic.php?topic=15393&forum=34&start=0&select_page_number=1 I've seen some speculation that it is caused by windex or cleaning fluid dripping down when the screen is cleaned and corroding one of the internal components. That's not applicable in my case, since I always just clean the screen with a microfiber dusting cloth. So, I guess I will be calling a repairman and spending $$$ to fix as it is now flashing up so often as to be unwatchable. Ridiculous, I think, given that my TV is only 3 years old!!

Unfortunately this is a repair issue. There are several failures that can occur, none of which will be resolved without service, that create this safeguard situation. Often the fpc cable which carries sensor information to the micro has been injured and that requires repair. Good luck, magic seadog

Try pressing services

I have reset my uniden bc scanner and am trying to re porgram frequencies in i press hold, put in frequency number , press func. and then prgm. and it keeps telling me error. What could be wrong?


First, be sure that the frequency that you're trying to enter is withjin the scanner's tuning range. The ERROR message will appear if you enter an invalid frequency.

Second, follow this sequence to program a known frequency:
- Power the scanner ON.
- Press HOLD.
- Enter the number of the channel you wish to program.
- Press the Func and Pgm keys (channel number will display).
- Enter the frequency, including the decimal point.
- Press E to enter your information into the scanner's memory.

Need the owners manual for your scanner? You can download and print it, at no cost, here:

Panasonic tv, vcr, dvd combo gets black rectangle with text in it. what do i do?


There should be a closed caption button on your remote control. You will want to go into the CC settings and turn off the TEXT mode as that is whats causing the black box to appear. Please take a few moments to rate my answer.. Thanks..

Can't install mac osx 10.5.7 combo update on 10.5.2


The 10.5.7 update sometimes does several automatic restarts - depending on the mac and the previously installed OS version.
In my opinion the 10.5.7 update has been the strangest I have done.
Try this.
Hold down the power button for about 10 seconds. The MacBook should now be off - but it may restart automatically while flashing the sleep light at you - and make a long beep noise. Don't worry if that happens just let it do whatever it does. Watch the screen and follow any prompts that come up.
If the MacBook did not turn itself back on, hold the power button down again for about 10 seconds. What happens now?
Don't press any other buttons unless the computer tells you to.
If however, you end up with another 3 hour wait then something is definitely wrong and you need to take it in to a specialist.

Black box in middle of screen


It's a text box for either closed captioning or demonstration mode. Go into the setup menu and turn off closed captioning. If you have trouble doing that, then just restore factory settings.

There is a large black box that appears on my screen and makes it so that that I can not watch the TV. It takes up the entire picture and all that I can do is hear whatever my be playing. Once it comes on...


Check your closed-caption settings. You will probably find that you have captioning on and set for "text" mode. Turn it off and the problem should go away.

What's happening is that with text mode on, the set clears an area (the black box) for text to be displayed, but there's no text. On channels or programs where captions aren't being broadcast, you don't have this problem. Most TV remotes have a button for quick access to caption settings, so it's easy to get this turned on without knowing it. Then you're suddenly facing the black box.

Please take a moment to give this solution a fixya rating if it gets your box cleared up, and thanks for asking here!

Thomson dti 6300 freeview box will not come on just shows constant red/orange light flashing all the time, tried leaving power off etc....anyone know?


What to do: if you have a solid amber light If the power light on the box will not change from solid Amber to solid Red then it is possible that a problem has occurred with the current in use software. Before attempting a fix, power the box off and on at the power socket and then wait at least 5 minutes for the solid RED lamp to appear.
If it still remains solid Amber and the box will not come out of standby to ON (Green light) then this can be corrected using the software revert procedure which is done using the box front panel buttons as follows:

1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the box.

2. Wait 20 seconds and then restore the power cable while pressing the standby button repeatedly on the front panel of the box.

3. Release the standby button immediately when you see a lamp flash on the box's front display, and then immediately press the following front panel arrow buttons in this sequence:

- Menu
- OK

Note: you have to do this quickly and in sequence

4.The Orange light will flash and the STB will then reboot and should return with the previous version of software.

5. The box will now be running with the previous software version but it will automatically update with the latest version within approx 2 hours and you will be notified by message which will appear in the Message area within the Main Menu.

If you're still having problems please call 08444 159 159 and a member of the Technical Team will be happy to help.

A black box appears on the screen


Hi,
Just happened to see your black box problem associated with your T.V.; Thought I would pass along an idea for you to check into, and let me know if it helped...Check into whether or not it has a onscreen text block mode, if it gets into this mode by accidentally pressing the wrong buttons on the remote and or TV, it could and I have seen, at least with zeniths, a big black box which will cover the whole screen except for a 2 to 4 inch border around the box and outer edge of the screen...if this is the case, find someone familiar with the correct setting for the set associated with this problem, and get it back into the right mode....Hope this helps..T.
