I have the same set, SD satellite going into S-Video. Some channels on S-Video, as well as digital broadcast over the air, have noise at the top, in my case it looks like 'dancing' white line(s) With 'just scan' it is visible but if I do "4:3" or whatever the native aspect ratio is with the "p.size" button on the remote it goes away. Hope this helps. You might skipping the HK and go right into the S-video as an experiment. I have been reading that this set sometimes does not size properly with certain brands/types of equipment.

II just want to ask a question about a TIVO DVR.


You can buy a used DirecTV with Tivo. You probably had a Hughes SD-DVR40 or SD-DVR80 before. The used model needs to be transferable to your account (which means it can't be leased, it has to have no outstanding charges on the previous account, etc). And you have to buy a new DirecTV card.

If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area or in San Jose, write to tivorepair@gmail.com and they should be able to help you out.

I have a Samsung Plasma TV (PN50A450) with sound but no picture.


Y board, Y-buffer board, or panel can cause this problem. Anyways, replace the panel shall be good, because those boards will come with the panel.

DirecTV receiver R15 won't respond to remote RC23


Well, I took the DVR apart and found the power board completely intact, no bulging capacitors. However, the Mother Board had a 220uf/50volt cap that was bulging, so I replaced it. By the way, 'DigiKey' is the only place to go for electronic parts. They'll hook you up! The DVR still wouldn't respond to the remote. Darn it!
So I took both of my DVR's apart and swapped out the Front Board (the one with the Photoamplifier in it) and the DVR would now respond to the remote. OK, so now what do I do. I still have one DVR with a bad Front Board. I started to look on ebay for an old used R15 500 that I could swap parts from...remember, I own my eqipment and the goal is to preserve what I have recorded on the Hard Drive. R15's were going for around $50 -$80. Then I got to thinking. I still had an old non-DVR Direct TV Receiver in my closet I never planned to use again. My thought was: even though it wasen't the exact model receiver, it did use the same remote, so the frquency that the Photoamplifier worked at should be compatible.
So I took apart this receiver unsoldered the Photoaplifier. I then removed the Photoamplifier from my malfunctioning DVR and installed the part from my unused Receiver and it fixed it. So long story short(too late for that) the Photoamplifier was faulty. I tried doing some cross checking and a company in China called Raytron makes the part. The failed part did not have a part # and Raytron has several different Photoamplifiers that operate at different frequencies. This made it impossible to find the right part without schematics or knowing what the freqency is. So at least we now know what caused the non responce to the remote.

R15 DVR locked in record


2 months ago my R15-500 stopped working. The "Record"(yellow) light was dim on the front of the DVR and a lightly audible clicking noise could be heard from inside the DVR. So I searched the internet and found this FIXYA site. I disassembled the DVR as instructed and removed the power board. Sure enough the Capacitors were bulging on top. I replaced all of the capacitors on the power supply output, I think 6 altogether. I reassembled the unit and it worked great.

Samsung pn50a450 plasma TV turned off by itself


first unplug it for 10 min then retry it. otherwise it is the power supply, the low voltage and high voltage supply are on the same board, have your tech send it in to be rebuilt if he is unable to do it him or her self.

Philips DSR708/R


My recommendation to you is to look into the Dish DVR. I have it in my home and it is excellent.

Can you use any other DVR......sure.

Unplug it from the power for about 30 minutes and then try again. If it still doesn't work I would call DirecTV and discuss getting it replaced.

Directv DVR Plus R15 Receiver won't power on


sounds like the receiver has gone bad. if you have tried it in numerous rooms/outlets and its not the electrical cord (its plugged in tightly at the back if its detachable) sounds like the receiver needs replaced. if you have the protection plan it MAY be covered under this and MAY be replaced for free. contact directv at 800-531-5000

Problem with playback on DVR - R15-500 receiver.


Check your signal strength on your second tuner. Dont forget to check all satellites and, if you use the signal meter instead of system test, a few odd and a few even transponders.

It sounds like it may be low.
