Re: switching on my san0218-250gb

Does the machine display "HELLO" for 30 seconds then power off again?
If so the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) has failed and needs replacing.

Stuck on hello message

Sounds like the unit is not booting up correctly. Probably going to need a new main board.

CD Rom does not work HELP!

Typically these drives don't need an extra driver, as windows detects them automatically. The first thing I'd recommend trying is to right click it's entry with the exclamation mark and uninstall it. Once uninstalled, reboot the pc. It should install correctly then. If it doesn't, there may be an issue with the IDE controller it's connected to (usually a bios setting determining raid/ide mode).

I have great sound on my Audiovox portable dvd player but no picture. Can you help?

  • Check that the A/V IN/OUT Switch on the side of the player is set to the OUT position.
  • Check the small switch near the hinge at the back of the unit, if one is installed there. It turns off the LCD screen when the panel is closed. This switch sometimes sticks in the down position and the screen remains off. When the screen is opened, the switch is supposed to pop up. If it is still in the down position, try to free it with the ends of a toothpick or paper clip.
  • If both switches are correctly set and the screen remains blank, the unit should be sent to Audiovox for service.

The screen is split ! PSCAN

Take a look at the back of the dvd player there should be a switch that says Progressive scan on/off. Switch it to off. Problem solved !!!

My sharp video shows the word dew on the screen then shuts down what do i do to correct the problem

do not operate your vcr in damp conditions or move it between rooms with different temperatures without letting it get used to new temp before switching on

do not switch of at the wall socket as vcr's have a little low power heater inside that keeps dew (dampness) away

Black screen

I think it's because the screen on/off switch is broken. I took it apart, and think that I need to buy a new switch.

It says in the book that the video output jack has to be set to RGB when using the SCRAT jack. Is that the correct setting?

Two screens and "pscan" issue

Look on the back of the dvd player. It has a progressive scan switch. Switch it off. Now it should have one screen.
