Hello,

the problem is from your the DVD's main board. The cause of the problem is high electricity voltage or irregular power supply that passed through the power board into the main board. This is why it is advise able to always use step down for DVD players because any high/excess current can damage the main board inside the player.

The DVD main board carries the whole function of the unit, and anything that happens to the board, will affect all other functions on the of the player. Its just like a motherboard.

I would advice you take it to a technician to ascertain the main fault and get it fixed.

Good luck.

    Hello,

    Okay, open the player, check the power panel/board, unplug the wires connected to the panel and fix it back. Do some troubleshooting on the power panel/board and try again.

    This might help to fix the problem.

    Take care.

Why I can't get my machine to record more than one programme, i.e. it will not record a series of programmes?


In the Recording menu of the Humax PVR-9300T (or (9200T), if the start or end times are set to anything other than "On Time", series recording is disabled.

Humax displays 'synapse' when trying to view video. sound is ok


I had this problem, perhaps after pressing some keys on the remote control wrongly.

I turned off the TV at the mains. I turned off the PVR at the mains.
I turned both the TV and the PVR back on, and both worked correctly.

My Humax Duovisio PVR-9200T often freezes completely and has to be switched off at mains for a few seconds. Or commands from remote (eg subtitles, menu, channel change) take minutes to respond. Or...


Remove the Aerial.
Switch on or if it's frozen switch off at the mains and on again.
Press Menu
Installation and enter password - 0000
Select 'Default Setting' and OK
Select 'YES' and OK to restore all settings to factory default.
Confirm again to start loading, enter the password again and it will start scanning for channels but won't find any.
Replace the aerial and press OK to rescan and now it will find channels. On completion press SAVE then EXIT on your keypad.
You won't lose any saved programmes but you will have to re-schedule your recordings.

Humax PVR9300t keeps freezing, have received instructions from Humax on resetting PVR to basics which hasn't solved the problem. Is now starting to freeze during recordings.


Apparently there is a new Humax software update which will be released on 3rd March 2010 - leave your box on standby that night & hope for the best.
There are a number of us with the same problem. Curently the only solution is to power cycle the box (turn off & on again from the switch at the back)

HUMAX PVR-9150T : REMOTE CONTROL DOES NOT TALK TO BOX - This has only happened recently and is not a battery issue. The box displays green lights on ''standby'' and ''tv'' I have tried reset, but cannot...


I also have this same problem. Freezes after about 30 seconds to a minute after switching on. Think it is possibly related to the program listings sent to it. May be some error. How do I fix though???

PVR locked in Standby with LED Display ''STARTING'' otherwise dead


pvr's generally just record to a hard drive if you are lucky you may be able to remove the drive and connect it to a computer and retrieve your videos (format permissive of course).

The fact that it hangs on starting suggests that perhaps it has failed to initialize software on the device.

if you are lucky there may be a way to reload the factory firmware onto the device but i am yet to see one that has been done with success.

Humax PVR 9150T Switching on in the night


I think the PVR is trying to update the software but is obviously unable to do so.

Thomson DT!6300-16 has stopped working


Usually to fix most odd problems on the Thomson digi box you should do a hard disk format every couple of months, select menu, setup, help,
press green button on remote
this shows advanced menu, press blue button, warning should show,
press green button to proceed
takes about 2mins you lose all recorded programs

If the problem is the box stays at red, and won't switch on,
pull the mains plug wait a few secs then push and hold the the standby
button on the main box (not remote) then insert mains plug, as soon as the
red light flashes release the standby button and very quickly press
menu and OK in that order, don't hang about, it has to be done very quickly
I had to do it several times before I got it right, this loads a preloaded firmware
and the box will come alive again the box will upload new firmware in a couple of hours.

good luck from Ron.........

Humax PVR 9200T freezing picture and will not turn off.


Unplug the aerial; switch the PVR On; if you have control via the remote do a reset to default settings thus:

1. press Menu on the remote
2. select Installation and enter default password of 0000 unless you have changed it
3. select Default settings and okay on YES
4. then turn if off again via the remote
5. plug the aerial back in and it will scan for channels, save them of course.

I got help on this from other forums but saw your request for help. This worked for me.
