Sounds like the power supply may be going out, or check and see if there is a circuit breaker button on the back. Otherwise there may e a blown fuse that is internal. Don't open the back unless you have training on what is safe to touch as the picture tube can maintain a HUGE electrical charge that can stop your heart if you accidently touch the wrong thing. Sounds like a weak power supply tho. Jay

Restart ss-2250 strawberry shortcake dvd player after prog. scan snafu

You should be able to simply shut the unit off, & turn it back on after a few minutes. This will reboot the player & it should perform normally. If this fails, look for a tiny reset switch somewhere on the unit. It will be marked, but may be a tiny hole with very small lettering, that requires a pencil point to activate.

Should you cut fresh strawberries to freeze or freeze them whole

I have found either way is fine. I leave them whole if I'm going to use them for a particular dessert and I think it would make a better presentation. If I'm going to make strawberry jam, jelly,syrup or even shortcake sauce I cut them in half or quarters.

I need the dish network remote code for the durabrand 13" tv

Turn ON the electronic device you want to program the remote to control.
Press the TV Mode button on the remote until the appropriate mode light is flashing.

Press the Power button. The mode light will stop flashing and stay lit.
Press the Up or Down arrow button to set the remote to the next code. The Down arrow button scans backward and the Up arrow button scans forward.
When the correct code is reached, the device (whether a TV, VCR, or other) will turn off.

Press the pound key button to store the code in the remote control memory. If the code is valid for your remote, the mode light will blink 3 times.
Turn the device back ON by pressing the Power button.
Press sat mode key once you power back on the tv to be able to operate the receiver box.
Try some other functions to make sure you have the correct code. Occasionally the Power button may work when others do not.
If the other buttons work you are finished.

If the other buttons do not work, repeat the previous steps. The scan will resume from the last code stored.
The mode light will flash rapidly when the scan has returned to the starting point and all codes have been tested for that mode. The remote control may not control some device models.

Univseral Remote Code for SS213 TV

I don't think there is a Direct TV remote code for this type of television. (Strawberry Shortcake). I'm assuming the reason is because this is such a cheap, generic tv that Direct doesn't recognize it. "Strawberry Shortcake" isn't as big as "Hello Kitty" I guess.
. This is sad because even though the big, pink power button has popped off to where you have to press the little rubber nub, my daughter has been using hers for well over two years where many reviewers have given the tv model bad reviews of breaking down after only 6 months. Hers did not come with a DVD player, although it IS a SS213 model.
