Question about RCA DRD430RG DirecTV DTV Receiver

1 Answer

Sound/Video Clicks and Pops

Maybe this thing is getting old; but it often causes the TV sound to produce clicky sounds and the TV video to become patchy during these periods. Problem originally appeared only during stormy weather---now it does it couple times per minute and on all channels. Signal seems OK (91-93 strength).

Any ideas?

If it is satellite signal you are getting, during storms that is a normal condition.
Not much we can do it about it, because all the signal are affected in times like this.

    If the problem stills there, I say your satellite receiver isn'to working properly anymore.

    I would call Direct TV and ask them to look into it, afterall you are paying them for their services. They might even give you new receivers.

    Good Luck.

Knocking sound in tv pls. give solution

What kind of knocking sound?
What kind of TV?
Some TVs have small fans inside them to keep them cool which can get noisy when old or if something has got into them.
Or could it be coming from a speaker?
Not many things in a TV can produce a knocking sound.

I recorded a video without sound not realising that the 'voice' option had been turned off. Is there any way to recover the sound or anyone I can send the video to to have the sound recovered?

maybe a movie producer,if you dont record audio,where do you think the audio will come from??,that is why there are switches on things,so you can turn things on and off

My htr-5850 just stopped producing sound while using the cable TV. I muted it once and when I took it off mute I have not been able to get the TV's sound to work since. I have no idea what to do. Any...

How is TV sound coming into your Yamaha? If it's from the TV analog audio then maybe the TV's audio output is muted.

If it's from the Cable Box maybe ITs audio is muted. I'd refer to the guide for the Cable Box.

MUTE on the receiver is not source-specific.

Do you know how when you turn on the receiver that it produces a click one time and then the sound comes on? Well, mine is now producing rapid clicks and continues to do so in any mode I'm in. Can I fix...

Maybe if you diagnose the cause first.

Disconnect the speakers and try a different power source. If it keeps doing it you'll need a hands-on tech to look at it.

I've got a rank arena tv/dvd combo,I've hooked up an old vcr so we can tape tv shows,but I get sound but no picture-what am I doing wrong?

Two things. 1 Scart. 2 VCR head dirty.
The biggest cause of sound but no picture is the scart lead. The pins often fail to make a good connection and so leave you with sound only. Solution is to replace the scart lead, the better quality the better.
2 If you are playing a video and get no picture, the cause is dirt, clean the head with Servisol Video 40.

Motorola DCH3200 cable box: sound and sometimes video cutting out

Sounds like your SNR is getting too high and causing the signal to overload. A few things can cause this a bad splitter that causes the signal to bleed and introduces noise, or a more common issue is having a weak signal coming from the cable provider and once it goes through a splitter it causes the signal to become to weak to be stable.

Since it sounds like your cable has been working up until recently, you may have had a cable or splitter go bad.

Call comcast and have a technician come out and test the line.
