Things You'll Need:
  • Burn-In Reduction Screen Saver DVD
  • DVD Player
  1. Instructions
    • 1 Plug DVD player into your TV and power on. Make sure you plug the right component cables into their corresponding inputs on the back of the TV. This is usually done by simply matching the colors of ends of the cables with the colors of the input holes on the back of the TV.
    • 2 Turn TV to the proper input to display the DVD. Make sure there is not a DVD in the player.
    • 3 Place burn-in reduction screen saver DVD in the player. Allow a few seconds for the DVD to start playing. A pattern of white "video snow" will appear on your screen. The entire screen should be taken up with this patterm.
    • 4 Run the DVD for at least several hours; this will help wear the TVs phosphors evenly. Depending on how long the image has been burned into the screen, the amount of time you should play the DVD varies a lot. A good rule to follow would be to play the DVD at least four times the period the image has been displayed. If you have an image that has been on the screen two hours a day for a whole month, run the screen saver for at least 240 hours

The battery on my brand new missil MP4 only last 20 minutes


Hi There,                Make sure you fully charge the device for 4 hours. On the setting on your device you should have a screen saver to shut off the screen display in a few second. Set this to saver battery time and set the auto off function if not in use for a long while to save more battery time. If your display screen stays on all the time that is the reason your battery dies so fast. Also playing your music loud for long period of time can drain the battery fast too.

Monitor won't stay on


Your computer may be in screen saver mode, it has instructed the monitor to go to power saving mode, or the the monitor's video cable is not properly connected to the computer. Another possible cause of this is a locked-up or in-operative computer since the computer is what supplies the monitor with all the display data or information. Move the mouse or press a key to de-activate the screen saver or power saving mode. Check the monitor's video cable and make sure it is snugly connected to the computer. To see if the computer is operating properly, press the CAPS LOCK key on the keyboard repeatedly while checking the CAPS LOCK light. If the light is not turning ON & OFF, the computer is non-functional. Contact your computer manufacturer for help.

Hi,

We have the same problem and what worked for us (until now) is holding it in until it comes on. Used to be just a few minutes but now I prop a book next to it. Last time, I just left it on with a screen saver on my PC which worked until the power went out. I think it's a power supply issue.
