80% or more of the issues with your DVR can be resolved by unplugging the box for 90 seconds and plugging it back in. There are some features that will be avilable immediately, and others that will take time to download. IE: all of the quide. I can't stress this enough - reboot your DVR occasionally - just like your computer its hard drive might need this.

I have also seen the hard drive inside this box appear bad when it was actually a problem with one recording. In my case it was a recording on the wrong channel, one that did not broadcast anything in my market. I was unable to access any of my recorded programs and when I tried to play the one in question, the screen went black. I deleted the program and all was well.

No longer has picture - voice still working - can it be fixed or is it worth fixing?

Not knowing brand and model number most of these sets have a 4-5 year life and parts for a set of this age may not be available.

The risk in repairing a set this old is it may just fail again and again.

The screen goes black every few seconds while playing a dvd. I've tried cleaning the player already and still have the same problem.

I am having a similar problem with mine... same model. It worked fine last night but this morning, went on the fritz. It started pausing every few seconds and so we took the DVD out. This evening, I tried to play a number of different DVDs but now the player will not even read any of the disks. I've had this DVD player for about 6 years so maybe it is just time for something new!?

Canon SD 550-- sensor problem? Bought 3/2006 and have had no problems. Suddenly, LED screen went black--shows nothing and cannot take a picture altho will flash and record black picture. Shooting...

The shutter of the camera is not opening that is why every picture taken is recorded black. It is a mechanical problem and probably has nothing to do with the sensor. Not very expensive

M35X Screen went black and will not come back on after shut down, reset and power up

Try to connect to external monitor and see if you see anything. Of course when you do that you have to hold at the same time fn key and the key that has a blue picture of computer screen.
