Question about TV Receivers & DVRs

Set will not operate?

I was watching the set when a slight but audible pop was heard, then the set went off. I tried several times to restart to no avail via the remote and the on-off button on the set. I then removed the back and uplugged the set. I noticed that after a brief time when the set was plugged back a group of green LED's came on briefly followed by another then they all went back off. This also appeared when a possible audio sound was heard. The set is a Hitachi Model # 55UX58B purchased in April of 2000.

Re: Set will not operate?

You will need to check a few things. The way the LED's come on and go off tell what is wrong with set. But you can check off the bat, first E996,E994,I908, Q026, Q777, D703,R732,D722

Your equipment is burned by an electricity discharge.. there is a tiny posibility that there is some sort of fuse there that you can change so it works.
other than that, if you want to fix it, you will need to take pictures so we could see what has been busted...

Have an old sony HDTV proj tv, and the picture went out last night. I heard sort of a "pop" then no picture

Pop sound shows that some thing went wrong inside TV and most probably any part got busted.
Let me know model number of your Sony TV and does its standby red light blinking? if yes, how many times it blinks between 3 seconds interval.

Blurry Picture from JVC I'ART connected to Mortorola HDTV reciever

Good day.

Maybe the problem is with your television set. Sometimes, loose connections within the TVs' circuitry can cause this.

Try to isolate this problem first by informing your local cable operator for verification by field technician.

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
