I just had the same issue - i've had them for about 18 months and they were working fine with my regular tv set - connected the red/white analog plugs to the back of the tv and then other 3.5mm end to back of base... but now, i just bought an LG hdtv and had to reverse that connection... 3.5mm to the tv and the analogs back to the base... worked ok for about 10 mins then the base shut off... seems that the volume setting on the hdtv wasnt up high enough to "register" with the base - base thought nothing was happening so it automatically shut off for "inactivity" - so, when plugged into tv, I turned the tv volume way up to 100.... seems to have worked - just need to be sure to turn the volume on the tv back down before removing the headphone jack!

The refrigerator keeps shutting off and coming back on periodically


Hello Jeff;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

That tells me your unit is working normally. If it was running continuously then you have a problem.

1.) Every 8-10 hours your unit will shut down except for the lights. At this time your defrost heater will come on for 20-30 minutes to defrost your cooling coils. Then your unit will come back on.

2.) You compressor will turn on when your have reached 10-20 degrees below temperature. It will shut off when you have reached 10-20 degrees above your set temperature.

3.) The normal settings for your freezer is -2 to 2 degrees F. and the normal setting for your fresh food section is 35-40 degrees F.

4.) Make sure you clean your condensing coil. This dissipates the heat from your unit every 6 months. This coil is either in the bottom front or a canister located in the lower left hand side in the back of your unit. Unplug your unit if you have a canister.

How can i get my olevia to turn on it keeps saying no signal. had a storm and it went out


Do you know for sure if the cable box is out sometimes you have to reset the box . usually if you unplug the box for a couple of minutes it will reboot that may do it or try rebooting both at the same time when power is off it really isn't as the units keep current available for instant on that's why its a good idea to unplug most of your appliances when going away. check out the rebooting that should do it

I have a SKPE Phillips phone VO1P8411B/37. In an effort to fix the phone I de-registered it. When I select REGISTER, it comes back with 'Registration failed'. I tried to put in the default code of 0000...


Firstly, unplug the base unit, then remove from this base unit the ethernet cable and most importantly, unplug the telephone line! Then remove the batteries from the 2nd handset. Keep everything unplugged for a few minutes, then plug the power into the base unit, wait 1 minute, then plug in the Ethernet cable and wait 5 more minutes. Do NOT plug in the telephone line just yet. After the 5 minute wait, put the batteries back into the 2nd handset and then follow the registration instructions from the manual (copied below)...

Make sure you have configured the language, country code, and area code of your
phone before registering additional handsets.

1. Press "Reg.". Register shall be highlighted.
2. Enter the system PIN (Default: 0000). Use "Clear" to correct typing errors.
3. Press "Enter" to confirm.
• Your handset starts searching for the base.
4. Press the top button on the base unit until the two indications turn off.

• If registration is unsuccessful, the signal icon displays steadily.

TIP: IF REGISTRATION FAILED, REPEAT THE ABOVE PROCEDURE.

Like other methods, you must hold down the button on the base unit until the lights STOP blinking. When you have successfully registered your 2nd handset, then plug in the telephone line into the base station. I did the above and it worked! The trick is to be patient and wait the few minutes while everything resets itself.

My sony kv-32hs500 would not turn on, i unplugged it for 8 hours now it's working, can i turn it off again or was it just a fluke?


Sometimes the software of the newer TV's require a reboot which is what happens when you unplug the TV for a few minutes. This was probably a fluke, but can happen in the future, you'll just need to unplug the unit for a few minutes if it happens again.

Sounds like a defective handset or base unit. Unplug the base unit from power and the telephone jack. Leave unplugged for 1 minute, this sometimes helps the phone to reset from a problem. Unplug the battery from the handset and plug back in after a minute also to help reset. Place your handset in the base unit for about 1 minute to allow the handset to link up with the base unit. If this doesn't work you may have a defective phone. Contact Panasonic support for further information if this does not work.

Unit shuts itself off after 10 -15 minutes


Protect mode will kick in whenever a fault is detected.

You get the unit not powering up, and sometimes you hear a clicking noise, that is the protection switch that keeps shutting down the unit.

Causes that can start protect mode are:

Electrostatic harges on internal circuits.
Leave the unit unplugged for power for one hour or so, this will allow discharge.

Bad speaker wiring.
Check speaker wiring, try unplugging and plugging back, or start after removing one speaker at the time.

Internal fault.
Internal fault is the natural cause for protect mode. If all the above did not work, then the problem is a blown component or an internal fault. In this case the unit must be taken apart , tested and repaired by an experienced person.
If the unit is less than one year old, or if you want to get service, call Sony at the phone number listed on the product documentation.

Regards.

Try unplugging the entire unit and letting it sit for 5 minutes. See if this helps. If not, you need to do a complete reboot, which will cause you to lose your settings, but will probably solve your problem. To do a complete reboot, you will need to hold down two of the front bottons on the front panel. I'm not sure which, so either consult your manual or see other posts here which describe the reboot process for Denons. Hope this helps.
