Screen flashed and stopped displaying widescreen

Usually this is because the display has been changed from 16:9 (widescreen) mode to 4:3 (standard) mode. On the front panel there's a button labelled "4:3 in Wide." Press this button to return to Widescreen mode. If it says "OSD Locked" then you need to hold the "Menu" key for several seconds to unlock the controls, before changing it to widescreen.

If that doesn't correct the problem then you need to adjust your computer's output resolution to a 16:9 ratio like 1920x1080 (1080p) or 1280x720 (720p.)

Most likely the laser lens was damaged when the 2 disks were jammed in. You must open the tv and check the status of the laser head and its lens, if it's faulty it will have to be replaced. Fortunately this is an unexpensive part.

Zone 2 stopped working for no apparent reason. Are there settings that I could have messed up or is it in the cables?

I have the RX-V1065. yes there is alot of settings that can be messed up with one wrong click on the remote especially if u have kids. If this problem happened while it was playing and no one messing with remote could be equipment. I dout your wires were messed up or the speakers bad cause receiver has overload protection for that and would display it unless someone tripped over wires and they came unplugged "kids" But try checking all settings on receiver first. Good luck

Display screen no longer works while taking pictures

Sounds like they accidentally pressed the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of the camera. This manually turns the screen on and off to save batteries. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place. To turn the screen back on, just press the DISP button one more time with the camera turned on.

Philips 32PW4523 with no widescreen options

no way to recover that info without obtaining a good service manual that has the default info loaded. Thats why you should always write evrything down that you change in the service menu and never change anything without having the service manual so you will know what the items sre what your adjusting. I can post a link where you can get a good service manual if you would like.
