Hi. I have never worked on this box but if it went faulty after power cut chances are that some of the electrolytic capacitors in the psu (power supply) require changing. Look for any that look like they have got hot are bulging or have a dark stain around them.

Can't tune Alba 7395 VCR into a Goodmans GDB12XIT Freeview box


Has the box got a scart socket? If it has connect the VCR to that via a scart lead. If the alba has two scart sockets then use the second one. When recording set the channel as AV1 or AV2.
If you don't have enough scart sockets to connect your TV, VCR and Box, then get one of these Scart Switching Box from places such as Amazon or Argos.

Problem with digital tv


The Antenna may be in a weak signal area heres a quick cheap fix
Get a Freeview Box and connect it via SCART LEAD to your tv, if the Box picks up a good signal then your tuner may be very weak..
You may want to try a BOOSTER to the TV first, and if that fails go with an external freeview. My neighbor has a 42 and the freeview box WITHOUT an antenna attached resolves all the channels..so give that a try. I have a goodmans too with a slow tuner and I have to retune it sometimes even though it gets a good signal from the antenna. I will be getting an external tuner freeveiw box.

Goodmans LD3265D1 TV won't switch on.


use a freeview box, turn the dtv off in the menu

To get it too power on press the source button a lot after a (good) few trys your get it up on another source, my own tv does this and using a freeview/freesat box makes it use-able just a pain to turn on in the first place even if you turn the dtv off in the menu

If anyone knows how to get it to turn on stright to another source would be great to know how

Bought second hand goodmans DGB3 freeview box, but although batteries in remote control are fine the unit will not switch on. The red light at front of the freeview box wiil not turn green? Any ideas would...


You must mean the GDB3, Goodmans never made anything called a DGB3.

There's nothing you can do Tony, you've bought a dud.

The GDB3 sold new for under £15 in many outlets and I bought two of them for £10 each; at that price it's not designed to be repaired and failures when under warranty are just binned and replaced by the retailer/manufacturer. Even a replacement remote control costs more than the box originally cost.

You've been unlucky and bought unwisely on this occasion, but don't let it put you off Goodmans in general as they're generally more reliable than many others at the same price level. Don't buy another used Freeview box though as there are many which are out of date and incompatible with the latest Freeview technical standards. You can still buy new boxes for under £20 if you shop around.

Do not understand how to set up my alba digi box to my television and recieve basic digital channels help!


Hi.

Ok
1) plug aerial in to the antena in sock on freeview box.
2) plug short aerial type lead in to rf out socket on freeview & antena in socket on TV.
3) plug A scart lead in to the socket marked TV on freeview box & the other end of scart in to one of the scart sockets on the TV.
If your TV has more than one socket plug it into the one marked AV1 or AV2.

4) plug in freeview to mains electricity & switch box on.
5) Turn TV on freeview should appear automatically if it doesnt look on your TV remote for A button marked AV or a button with either A circle or square with an arrow going through it you may need to press this several times until you see digi picture come up.
Thats basically it but do check that you dont need a new aerial etc to be able to get digi signal in your area.
