Question about Philips DIRECTV R15

1 Answer

Sound but no picture

When I first turn my tv on in the morning it always reverts to the tv setup screen. I have to scroll down to the exit button on the left side, then over to the right side to the exit button and push exit. Sometimes this works, sometimes it does not.

When you hit the second exit button, the screen flashes and then goes off again to the setup screen.

I have tried the reset button the DVR, sometimes that works.

There is one solution you could try first.. what you have to do is force a software upgrade on the unit.. How you do this is reset the receiver and when it says"your directv receiver is starting up" on the remote type 0 2 4 6 8 then it should say new sofware found and let it finish the update and that may solve the issue.. if that doesnt email me pimp_on@yahoo.com

RDR-GX315 was accidentally reverted to "Factory Settings" ... now we can get sound but no picture and progressive is turned on and we need to turn it off.


If your TV has progressive scan capability, you may be able to view the on-screen setup menu via the recorder - select 'SETUP' press 'ENTER' on your DVD recorder's remote to bring up the menu - with the remote arrow buttons, scroll down to select 'VIDEO' then 'PROGRESSIVE' - highlight it then set it to OFF (you cannot do this with a TV that does not support progressive scan from this unit). Once done, exit the setup menu and it should work fine with all the other settings. If your TV doesn't have progressive scan, connect the DVD recorder to one which does and turn its progressive output off there. I assume you still have the user manual for your recorder (if not, you can download it online for free as an Adobe document - .pdf. Page 73 details the setup steps for this model). I hope this tip helps somewhat.

1. Turn on the camera
2. Press the SET button (lower right).
3. Press the "trashcan" button ( to the right of the SET button) to scroll through the setup menu, 15 times, to get to the calendar icon.
4. Press the "ViviLink" button (below the SET button) to scroll down to "date setup."

Once the clock is set, press MODE to accept the settings.
6. You can scroll up and change whether you want the camera to timestamp the pictures - I turn this off.
7. Press mode again to exit the setup.

Make sure the monochrome setting isn't on.

Press the menu button go down to advanced and press enter.
Go to monochrome and press enter. Make sure it is on off and press enter. Press exit.
Please note what input you are in.
If this does not resolve the issue press the menu button and scroll over to setup. Scroll down to reset and press enter. Yes enter, yes enter again.
The tv will turn off and turn back on again.
Go to the right input.
If this does not work please change the cables you are using or try another input with the same and different cables. Attach another device to the tv to see if it is also a black and white picture.

We have picture, but no sound; it is not the cable box. Suggestions?  We were watching the TV when suddenly the sound went dead.  Messing with the cables in the back brought it back temporarily,...


Try changing the cable. Is it a red and white composite audio cable or an hdmi cable? Try resetting the tv to the factory preset values. On the tv remote press the menu button and scroll over to setup. Scroll down to reset and press enter. Select yes then press enter. Select yes again then press enter. Then after the tv restarts go back to the correct input. I do recommend trying another set of cables if jiggling them did cause the sound to come back once before.

KDL-52S5100 Picture settings always revert back to "vivid" mode after 5 mins or so.


More than likely the TV is in the "retail" mode which intentionally reverts to the "vivid" mode after a short period of time on the other settings, deemed best for retailer display puposes.

Follow the "return to factory settings" instructions found in the operators manual, pg 21 of KDL52S5100. Only the first half of the instructions are needed to put the TV in "home" mode, the 2nd slection to make after "language. After you have slected "home" I do not beleiev you need to any go further into the setup menu.

"Turn the TV on. Press and hold the "^" (up arrow) button on the remote and then push the "Power" button on the TV. Release the "up" arrow."

You should now be back to start, select langauge and home mode and then exit.

You now should be good to go and your picture mode selections should now stay put.

Sony has live tech help "chat" and I would suggest using them if this doesn't get it done - but I'm 99.95% sure this is your fix.
