Question about Philips DSR708 DirecTV DTV Receiver / 70-Hours Video Recorder

1 Answer

Several problems Sometimes the picture will freeze and then start again after a few seconds. Sometimes the picture will stop but the sound continues. Sometimes the picture will freeze and nothing responds until I power the unit off and back on. Sometimes the color will change to red across one portion of the screen green in another and yellow in another and then it may go to black and white. This can be resolved by pausing the picture until the color returns and then resume playing. Once I recorded a program and it appeared on the play list as if it was there including program name time recorded but it had zero duration time and there was no program.

When I turn on the TV the green start up light blinks green and the TV comes on with picture and sound for about 2 seconds, then turns itself off and the code light blinks 4 times, pauses then blinks 4...


4 times blinking means Fan stopped, power is not supplied on Fan 1, Fan 2 Fan 3 and at Fan 4. Or Fan connector is not attached securely. Cleaning these fans by using a vacuum cleaner can also solve your problem. Sometimes these fans are clogged by dust.

Camera Keeps freezing/turning off


Sounds like the camera is writing to the CF card. If this is after taking several shots, even worse in continuous mode. That's why it won't shut off or anything, it has to finish that before it will shut down. If you have access to one try a different card. Remember to reformat it in this camera. Page 38 of your manual. If that works for you take the card into a camera shop and ask them if they will do a low format a newer camera like a XSi, then reformat it in your camera again before you use it.

Video and Audio Freeze


Sounds like a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video until it has buffered at least halfway and then play again.

Hope this helps,

This is very common in Samsung DLPs. The DMD board is going bad. You will need to replace it.

Picture sticks, breaks up repeatedly


Change the location of the unit, this sounds like an overheating problem. It is too close to other units or is enclosed in a tight space. You may also try putting a small fan behind it to cool it down.
