My tv keeps cycling through colors and grey screens. I cant shut it off by the manual power button and get no response from any other buttons on the tv console. Its like watching a slide show. Not sure...

The TV is in Calibration mode. Take the original remote and press (Arrow up) (Arrow down) then (The power button on the TV) ((NOT ALL AT ONCE BUT IN ORDER)). Do it over and over if you need to.

Can you manually release a DVD from the Panasonic S32? The DVD player 'died' - with a CD inside. The instructions are silent on a manual solution.

Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
2. Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It's the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
3. Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don't want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
4. Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn't quite finished yet.
5. Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
6. Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you're careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

Good Luck!!

I have philips dvdr3455h/37 when pressing eject shows blocked on the display i did press eject more than 10 seconds and still blocked?

What is "causing" the "blockage" is the stabilization idler mounted on a plastic piece spanning the top of the recorder. It is a plastic disc with a metal ring embedded in it. It clamps down on the DVD once its loaded. It is supposed to release when the eject sequence starts. The read/write head assembly is supposed to rise up to read a dvd or cd and drop back down to a rest position when its time to eject the disc. The head assembly is encased in a metal shell, which is already magnetized or has become magnetized. The mechanism pulling the head down is too weak to pull the head all the way down. It moves just a little bit, you hear some noise and the "blocked" message appears on the display. If you take the cover off, you see the dvd still in the "mounted" position, but it has moved a little bit, but the clamp effect of the stabilizer is still engaged

Two ways to fix this:

First, before you go inside, tap the area of the phillips case right where you imagine the dvd center to be, if one was loaded. Tap and hit open, you may break the magnetic link that way, the head drops, the tray slides out. Then always keep a dvd in the player to give the release motor a little help, use a scratched disc you were going to throw away anyway. Second, you need to open the case, pry the stabilizer up as high as you can, or tap on the plastic near its edge while pressing the "open" button. You may need a PC type screw driver to remove the very small screws that the stabilizer assembly is mounted on. This way you can at least get the disc without further damage to it. You might as well leave the screws off, if you plan to keep using the recorder. Click on the link below to download the user manual:

Slide drops down to veiw but immediatly pops back up. You see slide for one second. Any solution?

Your projector needs a cycle contact adjustment. It is "continuously cycling". Depending on how comfortable you are with the inside of a projector will determine whether or not you decide to tackle this yourself, or contact a factory-trained dealer.
Unplug the projector, remove the lamp module and turn the projector upside down. Remove the bottom cover (6 - T15 TORX screws), and pull the bottom cover off slowly from the handle edge first. At the center of the slide change mechanism there is a camstack. At the end of the camstack there is a PAD. You will also notice a "J"-shaped wire (clutch contact). When at rest (the projector powered up and "idling", the wire needs to rest just about at the middle of the pad. See my attached illustration. You will need to bend the wire GENTLY and a very little at a time, then plug in the projector (be careful - hazardous voltages!!) and cycle the projector a couple of times. Check the relationship of the wire to the pad again. Unplug and repeat bending process. Check again. It should take (on average) about 5 or 6 GENTLE bends to get the adjustment correct.

Jvc dr-mv78 -- dvd tray keeps coming out

Try this: unplug for 1 hour. push in tray and unplug for 1 hour. No help then your timing is off internally, decks use rubber pulleys or fixed gears. Fixed gears slip because someone shoved the drawer closed, pulleys because they are old! There is no harm at this point to open it up and see what you can do ? Other wise PRO shop. Or toss and get another, Panasonic. Please rate..

My philips dvd recorder is not letting me open the disc drawer. it tells me blocked, i can hear it trying to but is unable to. i have tried to restore factory settings but it has not helped

These methods have been shown to work

The electronic procedure:

Switch off the unit at the wall plug. On the front panel, hold in the <RECORD> and <EJECT> buttons at the same time, and keeping them held, switch on the power at the wall again. Keep holding the buttons until the disc tray opens.

The manual procedure:
There should be a small slot on the lower side of the unit near the front and center of the disc assembly. By sliding a small plastic numb from one side to the other unlocks the door so it can maually be opened the rest of the way. You will need a strong, thin object to slide that release nub. A small knife or nail would work. Of course you should follow all safety precaution such as removing power and not damaging anything else.
