SOURCE: Aquos LC46D64U, problems with av input video signal

You know, I've had two repair instances regarding this particular model line (D64U) where there were problems with only the analog inputs (such as the component/composite).... but with no problem with the HDMI inputs.

Replacing the Main Board fixed these TV's. Since both the Xbox and the Wii present the same problem on two separate inputs, this leads me to believe you most likely have a defective Main Board. If your TV is still under warranty, I suggest calling Sharp to locate your local authorized service center.

SOURCE: SONY KV-36HS500 will not turn

the light blinking six times indicates a probable horizontal circuit failure usually a shorted horiz out transistors but this is not the only component located in this circuit that could create this problem, sorry but i am affraid you'll need to get a tech to diagnose it to the component level or get another pc board to repair it. hope this helps some.

SOURCE: have magnavox dvd recorder record direcTV DVR programs w/ hdtv

I am unfamiliar with this unit.
If you have scart connecters on both, connect av2 on the tv to av in on the recorder. set the recorder to record from av source.
You should now record a program, I think the static is the fact that composite is out from the dvd only, not an input, and in on the tv, not an output.

SOURCE: Sony Bravia does not recognize my Dell Inspiron 1525

I have the 1525 and you have to do extra steps each time you want the HDMI to be recognized by the Bravia - too bad it is not automatic as it is with some. Anyway what you have to do is have the HDMI cable connected from laptop to TV then go to your desktop - right click on an open area (away from icons), a menu will appear, let the cursor hover over Graphics Options - you'll then see Output To...then you'll see Intel Dual Display Clone...hover over that and you'll then see Notebook + Digital Television...left click on that and you should see your desktop on the TV in a few seconds. If it does not work the first time...get your movie or whatever you want to show up and ready and go thru these steps again...stupidly complicated aye? when it should automatically detect and show...are other TVs like this?

Check the circuit board and look for cold solder joints or cracks in the solder.

Will not work; shows "no signal" when turned on.


Be sure you have your input corrected to the feed you are accepting. You may need input 1, per say, you may be on input 2. If you select to use antenna, be sure you are on the correct channel advised by your Direct TV Servicer. The only other possibility would be, you are not getting a signal into the TV box. Follow the lead that comes into the box and see if it does connect to the outdoor antenna. As you suggest, one or both boxes work on the other TV. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Need DTV input channel on Magnavox Model


hello Sofia. The only signal coming to your tv, ever since the country went to digital signals is coming through your direct TV. For that reason you must use the input from direct tv to make the tv work.

Regarding your question about old fashioned tubes, no, very few of the old fashioned tube tv's are still in use.

I hope I have answered your questioins and solved your problem. Regards, Joe.

Want to run my dtv receiver through new digital converter box.


You will not be able to record local station from a DTV converter connected thru a directv receiver unless there is a a/v input on the directv samsung receiver. Also check the user manual for this receiver if recording from an external source such as a DTV converter box is possible. The answer to seperating the DTV converter box from the directv samsung receiver is possible if your tv has multiple inputs. Try connecting the DTV box to the RF input and the directv samsung box to an a/v input then change inputs using the tv remote. you will need an av cable (yellow/ red/white) for the directv box and a rf jumper cable for the DTV box.

Directv D10 receiver


I guess the obvious question is, do you have a DirecTV dish installed on your house? If you do, then most likely the cable you have plugged into the Satellite Input on the back of the receiver isn't connected to the dish. I would recommend calling DirecTV and having them send a tech out to double check the system.

I turn on TV and it says no signal. When I change input it goes on one time. Then when turned off it goes back to no signal and there is a long delay in changing any settings. It is like an overloaded...


If the Samsung svc. center replaced all the parts twice and it still does the same thing, look elsewhere for the problem. As a samsung servicer I know their parts dept. is very reliable. Few defective parts. It sounds to me like you have an issue with bad cables. Whichever you are using, HDMI, component video, s-video or plain a/v cables, try using a cheap pair on another input for a few days and see if that doesn't improve things. If you are using tv tuner to pick up stations, try the other r.f. input on the set for a short time to see if it is only happening on a certain source. Odds are very low you got two defective boards with the same problem. Suspect external cables. Good luck, Russmann.

Receiver misinterpreting IR signals


There can be a few causes of this. Since it happens with a number of remotes, we can state that the problem is inside the receiver. In the front of the receiver (inside) you should see a small silver box. Inside that is the InfraRed receiver. This is a 3 pin device. Check to be sure that the pins have good solder joints. A bad joint can cause problems. Also, after the receiver comes what is called a digital switch. This is similar to a transistor except that it makes the transitions more steep, like a step rather than a ramp. If this part is bad you can get these results. The digital switch will be marked c124 (perhaps or somehting close).
Check these out and keep us posted.

Off Air?


The Scientific Atlanta box was a cable box and recieved CATV signals. The Direct TV box is satellite only. You might check if it has a built in ATSC tuner for off air digital signals. Direct TV in most locations offers the major networks in HD format.
