Hitachi 50UX23K blows main fuse when just plugging in coax or anything in back

Whenever I plug in my vcr or dvd player or the cable line into the back it blows that main fuse. I've tried both unplugged and while plugged in. Also, S901 relay was removed and I put 2 jumper wires in place of it as a troubleshooting step due to the tv not even turning on. It turns on now, and can flip thru channels but as soon as I plug in the cable (coax) or the vcr, it shorts it and pops that main fuse????

I've spent hours on this!! All capacitors / resistors look fine with no bulging. I even checked the capacitors with ohm meter and all appear to be same resistance. Where can i get an S901 relay or equivilent? It's an OEG 12v /250v /10A / 30A ???? relay

You may a grounding (short) on the coax connector on the set. The connector should isolated from ether side of the AC input of the set. Take a ohm meter, set it to 1K. and test between the coax connector (both the shell and center pin) to both sides of the AC plug. You should get NO reading! If you do, their is a short. (The coax cable is grounded where it comes into the house). As for the relay, try Fry's electronics.

Sylvania (SRD3900) DVD Player / VCR Combo i can't seem to plug in the red/white/yellow cables into the right places directly to my old toshiba tv to play either tapes or dvds. can you instruct me? thanks.


Greetings - It's very simple so I'll show you how and then I think it may be another problem (nothing broken).

You need to plug the corresponding color cables into to outputs on your player I've circled above and then into the corresponding inputs on the TV. You've probably done this correctly.
PLUS - You have to, using the remote for the player, set the source to either DVD or VCR and then you have to, finally, on your TV set the input (with the remote) to what is called probably VIDEO or VIDEO1. If there is still nothing on the screen keep (with the DVD or Tape playing) hitting the TV remote input button until you see an image or you've come around to where you started.

Unless something is broken (unlikely) you should be able to watch DVD's or Tapes depending on what input you select on the player.

If it's not working you've somehow missed a step or the Video input on the TV is called something else. If that happens come back here and give the player AND TV brand/model info and someone will be able resolve your problem.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fix Ya.

Does it matter if it is a old tv, one that has a vcr, can I still connect?


Yes, you should be able to connect using a coaxial cable, connect the cable to the TV using the Coax (IN) input on the back of the TV.

Unplug from the mains and check the fuse in mains cable plug first, if good open up dvd player, there should be 4 screws on the side and 4 at the back, once undone gently lift the metal caseing upwards and towards you when facing the front of the dvd player, inside the player you should see the mainboard (pcb) on it somwhere there should be 1 or 2 small fuses, get hold of a multimetre with continuity testing capabilities, pop out the fuses from the fuse holder and test them, if they are bad that is your problem you can buy them from a electronic store like Maplins.
Post back with your findings.cheers

How do you hook a dvd player up to a hitachi vcr?


Not knowing the model VCR or TV your asking about here is the most common connections. You will need a video/audio RCA patch cable. This type cable is always included when purchasing a new audio or video appliance. If you don't have this cable they are available at your local Radio Shack, Best Buy and other electronic stores.

On you DVD player locate the three OUTPUT connectors at the back of the unit and plug one end of the color coded (yellow, white, red) patch cable into the corresponding jacks.
c1e7279.jpg
Plug the other end of the patch cable into the VCR INPUT jacks, once again matching the yellow, white, red, at the back of your VCR.
That's It!

To see your DVD player on the VCR be sure to select INPUT or LINE on your VCR remote. Some VCR's have an additional set of input jacks at the front of the VCR, usually labeled Front or Line 2. Use whichever one is most convenient.

Sony VHS model no: SLV-SE710G isn't recording now that we have a freeview box. It just keeps changing back to L1 whenever i try to record anything!! I only want to record channels 1,2,3,4 !! HELP!!


Its hard to work out without looking at your cables. I assume the problem started when the freeview box got set up. I would guess that the aerial cable is now in the set top box instead of the vcr as the vcr sounds like it is unable to record when there's no signal (a common feature) so there shouldn't be a fault with the vcr,

just unplug the aerial from the set top box & plug it back into the vcr. Ch 1 2 3 4 should be back on vcr but set top box wont have any Ch.

most set top boxes have an aerial output, so you'll need another aerial cable, plug this into the aerial input on the vcr & ch 1 2 3 4 will be there but these will be analog (if your area has stopped analog transmission thats the prob rite there)

If you plug the matching cables from the set top box into L1 on vcr you'll be able to record digital tv as L1 use a signal from another tuner eg set top box, dvd player whereas the vcr channels 1 2 3 4 use the vcr's built in analog tuner. so it shouldn't be a biggie another cable should fix it,

Hope this is helpful, ask if you need more info

There has got to be a way


I have this model..was trying to hook it up to a directv hughes receiver. After a day of trying and many curse words I found that using this hookup works . Hook up your satellite connection to you tv as usual...Now plug rca cables(red, yellow white) into the corresponding holes on the BACK of the Directv receiver ..now plug the rca cables into the FRONT of the Magnavox player...you will only use find holes for the white and yellow(that's ok) Now hook up up the dvd player to the tv using the rca connection back of dvd/vcr player..or if your tv only has a coax connection you will need a rf modulator available at walmart etc. You will run the dvd/vcr on L2. The key is the connections to the FRONT of the dvd/vcr player..I hope this helps..:)

VCR will not turn on.


Remove top cover of the VCR. Then look near the back where the plug-in and power supply is. There should be a little glass fuse. You should keep that fuse and take it to the store and replace it with same exact one. If your VCR can be self-repaired, than this is the only thing you can try.

VCR to TV


Your FIOS box is typically a Motorola Digital Cable Tuner. In order to record from the VCR your FISO will have control of the tuner, not the vcr. If your FIOS has two video outputs on it for video (av connections), one should be plugged into you tv set and the other should be plugged into the VCR input. Your cable tuner will have to be set for the channel you wish to record ahead of time while the VCR tuner has to be set to record the line input at whatever time you wish to record. If your FISO has one video output line (av connections), your VCR has to be set to channel 3 when you record (provided that is the channel your FISO box is set for when viewing TV over the coax cable) and you will have to attach the coaxial output from the FISO into the coax input of your VCR.

The only way around this is to get a splitter and split the coax line so that the FIOS is connected to the coax as it is now and the VCR is connected to a seperate line using the coax input, however using this configuration will prevent you from recording digital channels. If you have a cable ready VCR, it will probably only recognize channels up to 150.

If you really want to get it to record digital channels without the hassles find out if Verizon has a FISO box with DVR to it or connect a Tivo to your FISO. Tivo will tune the FSIO when it records and it's very user friendly to use.

Trying to hook up your DV220SL8 DVD/CD Video Cassette Recorder. I have an antenna coming in coax but there are no places to plug any of the jacks on the tv.


There are two ways of solving this problem
1.It seems to me that you need an RF Modulator Box. What this does is convert the RCA cables (Yellow,White,Red cables) into coax. You buy the box then plug you antenna and RCA cables into the box. The box has a coax output that goes to your TV. You can then switch from VCR\DVD to antenna.

2. I dont know if your VCR/DVD has it but try hooking up your antenna to the VCR coax INPUT and then hook up your TV to the coax OUTPUT. Both Coax INPUT and Coax OUTPUT should be on the back of the VCR/DVD device. Your going to need an extra Coax wire for this.

Hope this helps
