I have two 8182s that both do this. Got fed up and took them apart. Both of them had a broken hinge pin in the back of the cd/dvd drive. There is a fairly strong spring that clamps the disk once it get inserted and I believe the tension on the spring is causing the hinge pin to break out of the plastic it is mounted in. I epoxied mine and put a lighter spring in and so far it is holding up. Good luck if you are not VERY tech oriented. This isn't designed to come apart easily. Wish I could bring everyone some better news but I think it is a design flaw of the units. Scott

If you can find a separate tv tuner with remote the run it through the unit rear input. But stand alone tuner is rare if it even exist. Search Ebay to see if you can find one. There is another way by hook up a small portable tv with video/audio output and use an adapter from RadioShack to send the signal to rear input of the unit, but picture and sound quality is only as good as the reception of the tv. Goodluck.
just hook up a vhs or dvd player from home that has tv outputs, but you would need a power inverter for the power supply of the vhs, then put the vhs audio and videos outputs to the dual's input: the auxiliars. make sure the vhs has channel changing.

The blue warning screen should immediately go away after pressing the last digit of "26604." Still press ENTER as a precaution.
