Pull the wall plug and count to 10 and plug it back in. The program guide actually comes from your cable supplier or satellite dish provider or your TV over telephone internet supplier, so chop the power to that box as well. That forces the operating systems to load and reset.

The power button merely puts the set into standby, basically, just turns off the picture. You need a full disconnect.

Why dose recording in dvr goes on default date when light goes


Well, I'm trying to decipher this. Why does the recording in DVR revert to the default (date/time???) when the light goes off and comes back on.

I'm guessing you are trying to say time, not date, maybe day?

The DVR is trying to remember when a show comes on and record it, based on your settings. Usually shows come on at a specific time. DVRs usually update their scheduled recordings based on updated programming guide information. If you are constantly unplugging or causing your receiver to otherwise restart, most receivers will download an updated guide upon getting power back or restarting (DVRs themselves not having any idea how long they've been without power, download a new guide just in case after you unplugged them you moved to Arizona). During this time, the recording you set is showing the original time you set it up, because until the guide is downloaded, it has no idea that its wrong.


My best advice, even if I'm wrong about our language barrier here, stop unplugging your receiver. Leave it plugged in and powered at all times.

All times.

For ever.

The channel guide only shows no information available most of the time


sidbashford

You are getting that message because the receiver is not updating the Electronic Program Guide (EPG). Try unplugging the receiver from your electrical outlet for about 10 seconds (make sure all lights on receiver go out) and plug back in. This will cause the receiver to reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. Allow it also to download the program guide. After you get your channel back, pull up your guide, go into the future to see if it updated.

If it did not update, you'll need to run a check switch test. Press Menu on your DISH remote; should have Main Menu on TV screen. Press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 1(Point Dish). Highlight the CHECK SWITCH button on the upper right of the screen and press the Select button on remote. On the Installation Summary screen, highlight the TEST button at the bottom of screen and press the Select button on the remote. This will initiate the test. Allow the test to complete. Once completed, exit out of each screen till you get to Acquiring Satellite Signal on TV screen. After acquisition completion, allow it to download the program guide. If this doesn't fix the problem, you may need a new receiver. I hope this helps.

I system updated my ps3 but when its installing it only gets to about 99% and it gives me an error, and i retart my ps3 and the installation begins again but it never gets to 100%, and i cannot cancel the...


Dear, before you get in touch with Sony technical support you may want to try to use the PS3 recovery options. The PS3 stores a copy of firmware drivers on the hard-drive and will reload any corrupt files. To access the recovery menu, do this: Make sure the PS3 is turned off Press and hold the power button on the PS3 it will power on then power off. When it's off press and hold the power button again until you hear two consecutive beeps. When you hear the double beeps immediately take your finger off the power button (if your system turns off before you get a double beep just try again and hold the button, it should double beep the 2nd time you try) It will ask for the controller to be connected via the USB cable, Turn on the controller and you will have access to the menu. Be aware that you may lose all of your previously saved data (NOT trophies, they're stored online so don't worry).

Sony BDP-S300.


I had the same problem and sent an email to Sony. Here's the answer (it worked) :
Go to page 53 of Operating Instructions Manual and reset the player as indicated.

If you do not have the manual, here's what to do : Press Power On button. Power On light will come up. Now, Looking at front panel you have (at right side) 5 switches : Play, Pause, Stop, Rewind, and Fast Forward. Stop is the center switch.
Now, with Power On light on (it lasts only about 30 seconds), HOLD DOWN the STOP button and PRESS POWER ON button (the power on light has to be ON). This will reset the player. It worked with mine one.

Clicking noise sony bravia kdl-40v3000


Normal 0 My kdl-46v4100 has been off all day and I've heard two or three clicks. It sounds exactly like the click you hear when it’s been off all day and you go to turn it on. A few minuets after it clicked I turned it on and to my surprise there was NO click sound.
This LCD TV (like most large displays) uses an Active Matrix of thin film transistors, aka TFT. Essentially the screen is a large array of transistors and capacitors. According to my previous observations; I suspect the random clicks are associated with the LCD circuitry providing a fresh “standby charge” to the TFT array (hence no click on power on following a “refresh”).

Not a solution, but an explanation other than “cooling off…”
