1 Answer

Sony SNT-V704 I keep have the SNT-V704 locking up and losing video. I am still able to connect to them thru the network, but I am unable to see video on any channel and I am unable to change anything in the programing. It is like they just lock up. They only way to correct the issuse is to go to the site and reset the power no the unit. The network connection is staying good like I said I still can remote into the units.

Re: Sony SNT-V704

If your unit keeps crashing this could be a sign of over heating. There is a way to test if it is an overheating issue and that is as the unit is playing use a hot air gun to raise the temperature and trigger the problem once the bad component is found replace it.

How do I reboot a Sony SNT-V704?

Reset your SNT-V704:

Open it up and press the reset button on the main PCB 5 times while it is on. You can find the reset switch lower right corner when the front facia faces the ground. This worked for me.

I know this is an old question but I haven't found this solution on the net so let me know if it helps anyone.

I'm unable to connect to my push2tv netgear box. I could connect fine with my Toshiba Sattelite (Best Buy Blue model). However, I'm unable to connect with a Toshiba Sattelite M645-S4070. It has Win 7...

Sounds like you have a firewall problem either with the Windows 7 built-in firewall or an anti-virus application firewall. Do you have an Anti Virus program installed?

I am in search of an installation and user manual for snt-v504 sony video network server

To get the drivers you should always go to the manufacturers website (put the word support in front, i.e - if its hp search google for "support.hp") and you should then find your model number and get the drivers from there.
DO NOT TRUST any program that purports to find your drivers for you or locate missing drivers, always get your drivers from the manufacturers site.
Also, NEVER ever pay for drivers, the manufacturers ALWAYS provide drivers for their products and will never ever charge for the drivers.
Please please remember to vote if my solution was helpful to you, and if I did not help then please let me know and I can try further steps to assist you :)

Unable to log in on network. Error message ''The domain can not be found'' what is the cause of this. Have logged in as Local Administrator to find IP address How do I fix this

If this problem just started on a network that was working try resetting (unpluging) the router and modem. Another option is to do a "repair"
I assume this is a wireless connection.
Open your wireless network connection and go to the support tab.
Here is where you can do a repair. This will reset your network adaptor.
Try this and it should solve the problem.

Portserver ii keeps losing connectivity with the data switch requiring it to be disconnected and re-connected to the switch to re-establish connection. I have switched cables but connect still is lost...

sounds like its a naming problem, if two or more devices on your network have the same ip address it will cause intermitent connectivity. if this is not the case then you should contact manufacturer to see if there are any problems which they are aware of involving this problem.

Will not detect

Ok well all I can suggest is this... first try a NON-crossover cable.. 2nd.. try the address of The server should be setup according to the manual.. and should be detected upon connection, Also is the server to be set up to ASSIGN an address via it's DCHP or to RECIEVE one from ya lappy? I mean basically it is just a network device that sends stuff when asked, not unlike a networked Hard Drive etc. Usually ya set up the lappy for DHCP and the Video Server gets it's address from the lappy, & when "Polled" sends data to whomever "Polled" it.
