Front Panel Buttons on front don't always work. Just the On/Off works. when I tap on the Circuit Board in certain spots then it will operate normally until I turn it on next time. Very erratic.

Re: Front Panel

I had this same problem. Look at the circuit board behind the buttons, there are 3 connectors 2 white 1 black. make sure the black connected is seated properly, in fact check em all.

How to change input on tv without a remote

Which TV do you have? Some will have an Input or Source button on the front panel. A few will have an option to change the source from the menu. Both of these options require the front panel lock to be inactive.

A few older TVs allowed you to find the A/V input by pressing Channel Down on the front panel buttons until you passed channel 2 (or Channel Up until you nearly reached Channel 2). This option wouldn't work if the A/V inputs had been deleted when someone minimized going through unused channels.

If the Source or Input button was only available on the remote, you will need a universal remote that includes this feature. These cost a bit more than the lowest end remotes. Then you will have to try all of the codes to find the one that makes the Source button work with your TV. (Several codes may work for On/Off but not the change input.) The Universal remotes that can be programmed from a computer (USB connection) will be the easiest to set up. may have a replacement original or substitute remote for your TV that should work for all of the TV functions.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the TV make and model for specific options for your particular TV.

MojogiMy GHD1621F2 freeview recorder is frozen on one programme, won't respond to the remote at all (have new batterys) and won't respond to buttons on front. Turning off and on doesn't work...

Hi mojogill,

It sounds like the receiver may be locked up. If the buttons on the front do not work, then try unplugging the receiver for 5 seconds and plug back in then check to see if everything is working fine.

If you need any further assistance with this, feel free to contact me at Thanks!

Hi, I have an Aiwa A219 KE 21" color TV. Of late

Yes you have a dry joints on the croma,neck board section.
You need to resolder the cold solder first on the neck board (connected to the tube).
Then if nothing work there try to trace the connection of the wire from the neck to the main board.
Look for the dry joints around.Sometimes it is hard to spot so I've advice you to used a magnifying glass.
Thanks for using fixya.

9 times out of 10 start ups no voice ,it comes on 5 min.later approx gently tap rear of cabinet sometimes works

Check the circuit board for dry solder joints. Dry solder joints are quite common in TV's. the other thing is possibly a leaky electrolytic capacitor in the audio circuit or power supply

My thomson dti 6300 250gb free view box wont turn on

Emailed Topuptv and got this reply

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for contacting Top Up TV.

Please note that we are currently aware of an issue affecting some Thomson DTi6300 boxes.

If your DTR will not come out of standby and is not responding to your remote control, please try the following procedures.

Step 1: Power cycle
First of all, remove the power to the box and wait 20 seconds before restoring power.
Wait while the box tries to restart and allow 2 -3 minutes for this to complete.
Try this at least twice.
If it doesn't go to the solid green light then proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Front Panel Reset

Note: This procedure will unfortunately cause you to lose all of the recordings that you have stored on the box. You will need to be able access the back of the DTR and the front panel buttons

1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the DTR.
2. Wait 20 seconds and restore the power cable while holding in the standby/power on button on the front panel of the DTR.
3. Release the standby button immediately you see a light 'blip' on the DTR front display and then immediately press the following front panel arrow buttons in sequence Up>Down>Left>Right
4.The DTR will now show the Orange LED with the Green LED flashing until the format has been completed in about 60 seconds. The DTR will return to ON automatically.
5. If requested, perform a channel scan to complete the operation.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Our Customer Services department can also be contacted on 08444 159 159. However, please note that we are currently experiencing high call volumes and so may not be able to answer your call as quickly as we would like.

Kind Regards,

None of the buttons on the front do anything... locked up

Couple of possibilities here, could be a stuck button, could be a fan dragging and pulling the voltage down, check the PSU, low voltage can do this. Could be a disc problem, replace HDD and download latest software version from DM site reload and try again. Could also be "frozen", and if your PSU and HDD is healthy a reboot should solve this. No definitive answer.

LG LST-5100P set top box. Several times a day have

cap-grant, my friend has the same problem with set top box. When I phone maker I was told it is due to poor and weak signal. You must have 80% signal strength to maintain good picture. When signal strength dropped picture would freeze and had to be turned off at the power point to restart as nothing would work. So I guess what my experience says is you may need better aerial to boost signal and prevent dropout Leonard210
