I have distoration on both channels at any volume. The unit has worked perfect ever since I got back 10 years. I know it would be a big job to change all the output transistors but if you can offer anothe place to look it would be good.

No signal from this combo unit can mean either one of 2 things; the program information didn't update correctly while unit was in standby, so some digital channels may be missing or scrambled, or you have selected a HD channel by mistake during use (this series does not have a HD tuner, it is only SD which would also produce the no signal issue).
Going on the first possibility, you can reset the unit back to factory default. To do this, while it is on, press and hold (on the front panel, not the remote) CH UP and CH DOWN buttons together until 'SETUP' appears on the display. Once setup begins, and the unit searches for DVB channels, release the buttons. With the remote, follow the subsequent options afterwards, when prompted. Check other menus, then exit. This should restore your unit to all SD digital channels available.
Assuming the tuner works generally, this reset procedure should help (it works perfectly for Australian models of this series).
Had this happen after manually adding channels as well. Turn off unit (Hold Power for 10 seconds until it goes off or o's scroll and stop). Disconnect the power for at least 10 minutes. While power is disconnected, detach the antenna/cable box wire from the back of the unit (RF-in). Power back on while unit is NOT attached to the RF-in cable. The channel with the problem will likely show if the unit comes on all the way to 'normal'. While the RF-in is detached, you should be able to program that channel manually to delete from the channels selected. Turn unit off again and reattach the RF-in. This solved my problem (so far!). Good luck!!
Turn the unit off for about 10 minutes and then turn it back on. Then just wait for 'Loading' to go out - it can take 15 minutes or more. Be careful as the power supply on mine blew up after 2 years and I had to fit a new one £95.
Pan use a version of Linux on the recorder. If you change the hard drive there is a format command in setup to format a new hard drive. Put a DVD in and try selecting and playing both DVD and HHD via the front panel buttons.
Sometimes you can get error codes on a unit when the batteries in the remote are low. Try changing them
Sometimes the remotes are faulty and not communicating properly. A fix in some cases is to press the number button corresponding to the number shown on the display together with the enter or OK button for at least 2 seconds.
hello ,i fixed this problem on a dvdrhd400 i picked up off ebay with same fault. played dvds perfect but no audio coming in from freeview or scart (this is not a firmware update problem). the problem seems to be the capcitors on the tuner board (long retangle board at back which scart connects to) theres a 100uf 10v-16v capcitor (sorry cant remember if voltage was 10v or 16v as i fixed this a month ago and system as been working perfect and dont want to take it all apart again) its in the middle of the board off to one side with afew other 1uf caps around it. replaced it with a 100uf 25v cap (higher voltage is fine as long as same value) Capcitance meter was reading cap as bad. bingo worked perfect ever since.
I purchased this same unit yesterday from the PX Power Zone. I hooked up the unit and even managed to record a few minutes of a show. I then went into setup and made a few changes. Now, I have no display at all from the unit. Does anyone know how to reset the unit back to factory settings? Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Many thanks!
