Our power was off for a time and the restart by pressing a paper clip in the re-start hole will not restart the TV. It just keeps on blinking... Regards, Norm Rounds 303-797-2599 or e-mail: npr007@hotmail.com

First thing to do is a hard reset. Merely unplugging the RPTV power cord for 4 hours, then power up again.The purposed of unplugging is to dissipitate the stored current in the memory IC so it will gone.
If the reset does not help, try disconnecting anything on input 2. For example, if you have a dvd player connected to that input, the tv may be sensing its presence and switch over to it. (Especially, if the device is left ON.) Again resetting if that does not help,then there is something wrong. The power supply is in protect mode. There is most likely a short on one of the boards, or the high voltage generator, or a scan amplifier, or the power supply itself has a failure. Without troubleshooting the set it is impossible to know.The blink codes are provided for the electronic technician as a starting point to start checking for problems. This blink code suggest that there is a problem with a couple of IC's on the D board. Please be careful if you remove the back of the TV. The manifacture recommends that there on user serviceable parts inside. This is due to high voltage being present even with the TV unplugged. The problem is very likely a power supply and a convergence IC issue a problem this TV is known for. These sets are assembled using the wave soldering process they are known for having cold solder connections. This model of TV has over 2,000 parts which includes millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Diodes and IC can go bad. This may have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for a proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equiepment specifically designed for TV service and the skills to use the test equipment. In this case, the set would need to be seen by a tech who can get inside and test the circuitry that controls the function switching. Lugging a big set like this into a shop is not easy, but is will save you lots of money compared to having them come to your home.
Let me know if you need more....

Hope it may helps:

Trays locked


Look for a small pin hole on the front of the CD tray area. Take a straightened paper clip or a pin, push it into the hole until you feel resistance. Then press the eject button at the same time as you press firmly on the pin or paper clip. The tray should open. May take a few tries as you have to get the timing right. Good luck with it and I hope this helps.

Cannot open the dvd drive e-the tray for inserting a disc does come out on pressing the button or clicking on the word eject


Hello,

Every manufacturer for DVDs add a small hole in front of the device. The hole is big enough for a normal paper clip to fit. Untwist a paper clip and gently insert it through that hole. If you do it correctly it will automatically pop the door open.

This is not a permanent fix as the physical DVD door might be bad but it will work anytime you insert the paper clip.

Acer aspire dvd wont open with eject button


Whether you use your DVD drive to install software, make backups of your personal files or watch movies, having that drive onboard makes your computer more useful and more versatile.


While DVD drives function normally most of the time, sometimes a DVD will become stuck in the drive, and the tray will refuse to open.


Knowing what steps to take to resolve the situation allows you to start enjoying the advantages of the DVD drive again.


Log on to your computer and click the "Start" button. Choose "Shut down" from the menu and then choose "Restart." Wait for the computer to restart, then press the eject button repeatedly.


Remove the DVD if the drive pops out.

Since there is no hole skip this and go to cleaning the lens.
Shine a flashlight on the DVD tray and locate the small hole near the eject button.


This is the bypass hole and it allows you to eject a DVD when it becomes stuck.

Insert an unbent paper clip into the hole and push it in until you hear the DVD begin to spin. Push the paper clip in until the drive pops out.


Remove the DVD and insert another one.

Use the bypass hole again if the new DVD becomes stuck.


If the new DVD sticks as well, you need to clean the laser lens on the DVD drive.

Insert a laser lens cleaning DVD and close the tray.


Run the laser lens cleaning program at least three or four times to make sure the lens receives a thorough cleaning.


Restart your computer and insert a DVD to test the unit.

Lost password--how can I reset it


You will need a paper clip to press into the hole, this will be marked in most cases with 'Reset', if not it will be placed near the ventilation holes at the bottom/back. Whilst still on, press the paper clip into the hole for 10 seconds. Then give the router a minute to restart.
Bear in mind that when you reset it, you wipe all the information on the router and you have to start again from scratch, make sure you have your broadband username/password available to hand before you do this otherwise you won't be able to reconnect to the Internet!

My cyberhome dual layer 16x dvd+r/rw 8.5 gb is not ejecting


Take a paper clip, straighten it out, you will notice a little hole on the DVD drive . if you press the paper clip into the hole you will hit the gear that ejects the drive. gentle but firm push and the CD ejects manually. (its probably locked by DVD or CD software) most of the time you can get it ejected before booting into windows, when you restart.

Cheers.

DVD tray won't open.


Opening a CD or DVD drive to retrieve a disc
  • Use Windows to open the drive door:
    1. Double-click the My Computer icon on the desktop (or click Start and My Computer in Microsoft Windows XP).
    2. Right-click the CD, CD-RW, or DVD drive , and then click Eject .
  • Restart the computer and press the EJECT button on the front of the drive when the first screen appears (before Windows launches). If the drive door opens this way but does not open in Windows, another software program is taking control of the CD drive. Try shutting down or configuring any programs that write discs or monitor the CD drive.
  • If the door still will not open, do the following:
    1. Close all programs and shut down the computer.
    2. Unplug the PC from the power outlet and remove the battery.
    3. Locate the manual release hole in the front faceplate of the optical drive tray. This is a small hole under the door that is a little bigger than the diameter of a paper clip. The location of the manual eject hole will vary.
    4. Insert a straightened paperclip into the manual release hole until resistance is felt.
    5. Once the resistance is felt, keep pushing the paper clip until the drawer comes out about a quarter of an inch.
    6. Remove the paper clip and gently pull out the drawer until the disc is accessible.
    7. Remove the CD and turn on the computer.

I have a mitsubishi 1080 projection tv. I wont turn on, the green light just keeps blinking.


Check the manual...blinking green light is normal. The unit is powering down cooling the lamp. It could have been a shut down command through pressing the off button by accident. If problem continues I would unplug tv and power on/off. Steady green. Next to the lights is a small indentation where you can reset the TV to the defaults. Take a paper clip ...power on..and put in the center. The green light will blink for a minute or two then go dark. THen power up.

Tv wont turn on


Had the same problem. turned out to be the power supply to the DM assembly. Had to put a power supply, board and a new lamp in. Tech said the lamp blew out the power supply and board. I think it's just a lemon.
