Front display panel has power, but won't open

Firstly i have no remote as it was lost before handed down to me.. will be trying to aquire one via ebay or other source. It was a home installation and am yet to disassemble to check wire connections etc. (was hoping to avoid removing entire front coconsole.. again) the main confusion is that the front display has power (has constant display cycle), memory for clock is fine, AND the reset button is functional. however the display change and open button fail to work... approximately 6 months prior to installation the unit was powered at a local strathfield and all buttons were working any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi bought this TV second hand but no remote or instructions. Any idea where I can find both? Thank you

Check the manufacturer's web site for documentation and replacement parts. Be sure to have the model number handy before contacting. If unable to locate documents - contact their customer service via email or phone. You may find used remote controls for the TV on ebay, new - universal remotes online and stores such as Radio Shack, Best Buy, Fry's etc. Good luck

Remote will not turn the TV on

Hi Terry,
It is a common problem with remote controls. The power key is used very much and the conductive rubber pad underneath wears out. If you can, open the hand set and clean the under side of the keys with cotton and solvent (after shave solution will do). It will bring back the action. At least for some time. If it does not work, go for new remote control.

Lost remote control

Replacements may be available at eBay. If not check with the Philips Company directly. The control is no doubt some place in your home. Look behind the seat cushions....lots of things fall down there. Who knows; you may even find that lost change to pay for a new remote!

My sportster 5 satellite radio is not getting signal

Is it "Aquiring Signal" or "Antenna Not Detected"? It could be the antenna, the dock, or the radio itself. For whatever reason, the Sportster 5 seems more fragile in the dock connections. TSS Radio has a repair guy who can fix this issue. You can reach him via email at [email protected]

Samsung washing machine wf7604naw door is stuck and the lock sign won't go away- how do i force the door to open- my cloths are locked inside

It can be the door lock servo which is a ****** to reach or tamper with as it's a sealed unit, I sorted mine by draining via the filter port at the bottom right front behind the rectangular front panel ( this will normally fill a small saucepan half way when machine is level which is the best way to drain although you will be using a cellulose sponge to soak the water from the floor rather than directly into the pan) then tilting from the front 45 degrees or more backwards. This all being done with power off and water inlet pipe disconnected as this can and will snap readily. Having rested back down to a level try the door again and smile.

Need to recover data from DirecTV R15 DVR receiver hard drive

First, sorry for the delay in respoding to your post. I did notice that you had a prior question about the Power Supply on an R15 DVR. Does the unit have a manufacture code of 500(found on the right hand front Flip Door of the DVR)? If so, I might be able to help you in repairing the Power Supply. As far as I know, getting your DVR up and running again is the only way to watch your previously recorded programs. As far as retreiving programs from your old Hard Drive via other methods, I probably won't be able to help you there. When I had both of my identical DVR 15 500's apart for a parts swap to diagnos a failed Phototransistor(infra-red sensor for the remote control), I also tried to swap out the Hard Drives. This is what I found: When you swap a Hard Drive into another DVR, it won't play any of the programs previously recorded. However, if you record new programs on the swapped Hard Drive then they will be playable on this current setup. Now, if you swap the Hard Drive back to the original DVR it came out of, the programs will once again be accessible except for any that you might have recorded while the Hard Drive was in the other DVR. So, in conclusion, when programs are recorded on a particular DVR, it is encoded electronically to play back only in that DVR via communication from the Motherboard and the Hard Drive. I know, it sucks, but that is why I was asking if you are pretty sure the Power Supply is at fault. If so, I received info from this forum on how to fix the issue. Also, if the attempt fails, Ebay has some previously owned DVR's for sale and maybe you can get one for spare parts. Remember, the Power Board and Front Display Control Panel are the only interchangeable parts IF you want to view the programs on your DVR's Hard Drive. Let me know what your DVR does when you plug it in. That will go far in further diagnostics of your DVR.
