Question about Radio Shack Cinego D-1000 Multimedia Projector

1 Answer

Search won't lock on to source.

The search screen stays on and will cycle through the various sources. It won't lock on to the signal. Tried with a DVD playing and with an external Dish Network source through the video in.

    Thanks Benimur,

    Unfortunately we were unable to pull up any setup menus. the unit kept cycle through the sources even with the menus selected. I.e. The setup menu would only appear for a second before being replaced by the src search screen. Also we could see and hear the video image as it cycled through so it appeared that cables were correctly plugged in. It just wouldn't stop cycling.

    We finally took the unit to the Radio Shack we bought it from and sent it in for service. No problem since it was still under warranty. It came back 2 weeks later. Not sure what the service techs had to do. But it works and looks great! :)

Below is copy of my post to a similar problem.

This is a fairly common problem with this model. In most instances, it is just "slow" in sensing the presence of a video source as it cycles in its selection, internal DVD, VGA, Composite Video IN. Since it does not have a manual source selection, your only option is to really wait.

Verify that "Auto Source Select" is enabled in the Management Menu (buttons-Proj/Setup then >/9) and "tap" the "SRC" button on the projector itself to manually initiate the input/source selection.

Verify that you have done the connections correctly. Yellow RCA connector is the video while the red & white are the audio. Of course the Video input should be connected to the Video output, same goes for the audio. Please refer to pages 22 & 23 of the user's manual for more detailed instructions as well as illustrations.

A couple of things to consider: it is not HDTV capable and pls don't loose the remote.

If the unit will not select a source after some time (minutes), perhaps your best bet would be to seek replacement.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My tv is on the photo screen and can't get it back to normal tv. I've tried everything and nothing has worked

The source button on your remote should cycle thru the various inputs. If it doesn't respond make sure the lock button (child lock) hasn't been pushed and engaged on the remote.

How do i get my westinghouse to recieve signal it shows on the tv no signal and on the box it says that the tv does have a signal

Make sure you have the TV tuned to the proper source.

My TV has multiple input sources ranging from the cable box to various AV and gaming equipment and I must select the right input source in order for the TV to receive a signal.

On my controller, there is a button at the top for selecting the input source. I can cycle through all sources by pressing that button. If you're using a programmable universal controller, that function may not be programmed into the universal controller so you may need to use the original controller that came with the TV.

If, after you've cycled through all of your available sources and still get no signal, check and see if a wire has come loose between your cable box and TV, either at the cable box end or the TV end.

Hope this helps.

InFocus IN2102EP Projector My projector is connected to an Elmo TT-02s digital presenter that I use to show documents to my Students. When I first power on both devices, they seem to be working fine then...

Most projectors have an auto search function which can be switched off. You can then set the source to the specific input that you are using. Of the problem persists it may be the battery of the Elmo. (If it has one) Maybe it isn't strong enough to send the signal and maintain it.

Good luck.

I connect the cable,it doesnt show anything!I try the auto channel search for both cable and antenna,it doesnt find any channel at all!it says-no signal..-rca 20inch sdtv truflat.dual combo with dvd player...

I assume you tried the cable on a working TV to make sure there is a signal on the cable line and that the cable terminal is OK. See if you can control the input selector and set it up for RF or TV reception. If OK, try to tune in channels manually or in auto mode. Do this in programming mode. If you notice any noise on the screen, this means the source selector circuit is OK. If there is no noise, the source selector may not be latched to the RF circuit output. Try to feel the terminal at the back of the TV set. If it feels like it moves when pressure is applied in various directions, chances are the solder connection for the terminal onto the circuit board may be faulty. Resoldering them would be easy for DIY enthusiasts. If it isn't the culprit, try the DVD. If it works fine, then the video circuits must be ok. The trouble could be from the video source selector circuit backwards to the RF block. Usually an IC senses the power condition of the DVD player. If it senses that the player is ON, the IC latches on the signal coming from the DVD player. See if there i a separate power button for the DVD. More later, please post a feedback

We turn it on and the screen stays is connected to the cable but won't get a picture nor does the original set up come on

I don't have the manual in front of me but what you need to do is change the source. The tv accepts input from various sources and connections. So you need to tell it where to find the signal you want. On your remote there will either be a button marked source or you will have to find it from the setup or menu button.

Usually there are 3 or 4 valid inputs. So all you do is press the source button and it switches to the next source. If there is nothing there you press it again and it goes to the next and so on. It will just keep cycling through the inputs as you press the button. You should see something marked as AV1 AV2 CABLE as you cycle through. When it finds the cable source it will then scan through and mark the avilable channels. This may take a few minutes. After that you can just use the remote to normally switch channels up/dwn etc.

Tv not working

Can you confirm that you didn't have any input signal? My wife once accidentally pressed the reset button on the remote and the TV was stuck in this state. I tried to hook up an antenna to the digital antenna input and let the TV search for a channel. It did find a station and got out of the channel search mode, which was all I needed. Then, I unhook the antenna and continued to enjoy my DVD movie. I didn't check the manual. So, it's possible that there is a better solution. My TV was working fine and I think it just has a terrible user interface. I'm not sure about your TV's condition, though.
