Question about RCA MSN TV 2 Digital Media Streamer (RM4100)

2 Answers

I bought 15 used MSNTV2 units from a government liquidation auction with the hopes of reselling them for a profit. I failed to realize that these are password protected machines and there isnt much you can do without the previous owners password. Is there any way to wipe out the previous owners user information without having to call tech support?

    Thanks for the response but I previously researched this code and tried it, but the password screen still exists. I even tried disassembling the unit taking the card out of the machine and erasing all of the data on it, password screen is still there even after that.

Ruismall is halfway there. You must hold down the MSN power button on the keyboard while typing the magic number 32768. Wait a while until the TV screen goes blank, then power up again. I had to power up twice, but I did finally get the "Welcome to MSN" screen.

Yes turn it off and with the keyboard type 32768 all lights will blink and then the green light will blink slowly and then faster when it stops, turn it on and it should be reset to factory condition

Did the us government pay the NFL. StRting in 2009 to come on the field and be patriotic to boost recruitment in military?


Yes they did and here is another thing people don't realize. But the NFL has a none profit status with the IRS, so they don't pay taxes.

Please explain/summaries chapter 7


"Chapter 7, also called "liquidation" or "straight bankruptcy," is the process by which a debtor's assets are sold, creditors receive payment, and you are then free from your debts."

Source: http://bankruptcy.findlaw.com/chapter-7.html

"Chapter 7 of the Title 11 of the United States Code (Bankruptcy Code) governs the process of liquidation under the bankruptcy laws of the United States (In contrast, Chapters 11 and 13 govern the process of reorganization of a debtor in bankruptcy). Chapter 7 is the most common form of bankruptcy in the United States."

Source: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapter_7,_Title_11,_United_States_Code

"A chapter 7 bankruptcy case does not involve the filing of a plan of repayment as in chapter 13. Instead, the bankruptcy trustee gathers and sells the debtor's nonexempt assets and uses the proceeds of such assets to pay holders of claims (creditors) in accordance with the provisions of the Bankruptcy Code."

Need to get by password log in for Windows XP. Bought unit at auction.


If I recall correctly, you can get passed the password and use the computer, but you cannot do anything that would require an administrator password. In order to get passed that, you would have to format (because it will not let you reload Windows without a password) and load a fresh copy of Windows. I hope this helps.

I am looking for watches to buy at thrift stores and resell. Are there any certain brands or a certain mark I should look for?


No, there isn't any decent brands or makes. You will struggle to resell them and I doubt you will get any profit at all.

1) A trader bought 45 dozen items for 2700 naira. If 15% of the items got destroyed, what should be the cost per item to make a profit of 265? 2) A woman bought 200 mangoes for 800 naira she discovered...


Answer A:

45 dozen: 12 x 45 = 540

Destroyed: 15% of 540 = 540 x (15/100) = 81

Remaining: 540 - 81 = 459

A profit of 265 means that 459 items must sell at 2700+265=2965 naira or 2965/459=6.46 naira approximately.

Cost per item = 6.46 or 6.5 naira approximately


Answer B:

Cost = 800 naira

8 spoilt. Remaining = 200 - 8 = 192 OR 16 dozen (12x16=192)

Selling price: 60 naira per dozen = 60 x 16 = 960 naira

Profit made (selling price - cost price) = 960 - 800 = 160 naira. Percent profit = Profit/cost x 100 = 160/800 x 100 = 20%

Percentage profit = 20%

Installing compressor


It is likely you received a service port necessary to remove and replace the refrigerant in the failed system. Add a photo? It should be capable of clamping around 1/4 or 5/16 copper tubing and then piercing through the tubing via a schrader valve in the 5/16 flare nipple. Needs to be capped with a metal cap when you complete the job. Be sure to neutralize if you have an acid burnout condition from the failed compressor... copper windings burning in the absence of oxigen with all that hydrogen rich coolant makes for very high H+ concentration (i.e. ACID). The pH is minus the log of the hydrogen ion concentration so that number will be low.

1) add the service port
2) using your service hose and a transfer pump, remove refrigerant
3) test for acid and neutralize as needed, replace filter dryer anyway
4) replace compressor with make-up oil as measured from the failed unit and any collected with the refrigerant... use new oil only
5) pressure test with dry nitrogen
6) vacuum and hold 26+ inches Hg, more in cold areas
7) charge refrigerant in by weight specified on label
8) allow to equalize before starting, do not start in extreme cold since liquid refrigerant could be in the lines
9) recycle contaminated or acidic refrigerant
10) test the charge using a superheat/subcool setup if the system is not performing satisfactorily

Msntv2 does not work on ebay. it powers off everytime i do a search on ebay


Go to www.skweezer.com. Once there, type in www.ebay.com. It will work. Save your ebay favorite searches as your regular favorites, even though they are going through skweezer. At the bottom of each Skweezer page, there is a place to click to go to a chosen page without the skweezer filter. This will work to go to an Ebay item listing without crashing, if you then wish to do so. Skweezer takes a little getting used to, since the pages have a compressed format, but it will do the job on Ebay and other sites MSNTV2 has a problem with. These are ever-increasing, as the good folks at Microsoft fail to update the units to keep pace with changing technology.

My portable


Depending on where you purchased the unit. If you bought it from a mail-house (like the ones out of New York or New Jersey), they have a tendency to break up the manufacture's package and remove the accesories that are supposed to come with it. They sell the DVD player at a reduced price and make a higher profit by reselling the accesories separate. The one I bought (from Macy's) came with the Lithium battery, AC cable, remote, car adapter, AC adapter/charger, and earphones all packed in the box with a carrying handle.

My MSNTV2 receiver will not connect to the modem. I have exausted all support with MSN support staff. The modem is working and I have connection to my laptop. However, everytime I try to connect with the MSNTV2 I either get "cannot connect to broadband" or "there is an IP address error." We have gone through the settings and tried everything (with msn support staff.) When you run diagnostics on the connection it give a "2" result. We have done "find connection manually" and "automatacally detect" to no result. I have a steady green and a flashing amber light at the ethernet port and we have tried to replace the cable attaching the receiver to the modem. Both the support staff member and I agree the problem is NOT the modem since it has connection and I can get online with my laptop. I believe the receiver has a malfunction, however, I do not want to look for a replacement until I feel confident there is no other option. The receivers are expensive to replace and I don't want to find one, buy it, just to find out that I still have the same problem. Also, the support staff at MSNTV aren't the brightest. I have had a few complication from them in trying to fix the problem due to the random person I get when I call. I spent hours on the phone with Verizon, our provider, to get assistance with what MSNTV told us to do (reset the modem) only to find out when I call MSN back after completing their request that I was given the wrong advise from the previous tech. I'm not convinced they know what they're doing. Either way, do you have any other advice or ideas what could be wrong? The system use to work OK, then it started to sometimes being able to connect and sometimes not (after they would do system updates on their end), to now not being able to connect at all. Anything you could give would be greatley appreciated.
