Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

5 Answers

Hi--The Date and TIme and Channel settings on DVD/VCR player (DV2150) got screwed up by a power outage. As I was resetting them, I noticed that the RF Output had changed from channel 3 to channel 2. As I was trying to fix it, I must have hit the wrong button on my remote and now I can no longer access the "blue screen" on which the settings appear. No matter what button or combo of buttons I push for either VCR or DVD function, I get a snowy screen and a bunch of static and the player is now nonfunctional. This happened once before and I somehow accidentally fixed it but don't remember how. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated. Ellen

    I pressed TV view on the remote--nothing happened. I then pressed a button on my TV labeled Video/TV and got a dark blue screen that said Video in the upper righthand corner. (it did not specify 1 or 2). Pressing Setup, etc. as described on pp 22-3 does nothing.

    I changed it to 2 using my TV remote, which results in losing my regular TV picture. I may be misunderstanding what you are telling me to do...

  • ellenper Apr 04, 2008

    I'm sorry--I must not have explained the problem clearly. I'm using the original remote. The VCR is not damaged--it was still working after the power outage--I just needed to fix the settings in order to record. This has happened before. The problem occurred when I noticed the RF output, which usually says channel 3, said channel 2. I don't remember exactly what I did--but I must have pushed the wrong button. Now I'm unable to access the setup screen. I can't get back to the RF setting because I can't access a setup screen. If I can just get back to that screen, I know what to do,

    Well, at least now I've made some progress--I think! Holding the power key down got rid of the gray snowy screen. When I turn on the VCR/DVD player I now get my normal TV picture. However, I still can't access the on-screen display. When I press DVD/stop as advised in the instruction book, the display on the DVD player blinks the word SAFE. I assume that to restore the OSD I need to change the settings on the DVD player. Is there some way to do this without using the OSD? If possible please explain in explicit detail, keeping in mind you are dealing with someone from the prehistoric era when people operated their TVs manually and no special expertise was required.

    I have not been able to get any help from so far with restoring my dvd/vcr's onscreen display. (The blue screen on the TV where you set the time, date, etc., and schedule recordings). I tried pressing the Power button on the remote to restore the factory settings. Now when I turn on the player, the panel on the vcr that displays the time flashes the word "SAFE." I still have no screen display on the TV...

Based upon the discussion thus far, I think that you have performed a "soft" reset without complete success. The power failure was perhaps more of a dip rather than a complete power fail. The micro inside the unit appears to be somewhat confused. You need to perform a hard reset. Try unplugging the unit for a couple of hours. That should allow the backup battery/capacitor to run out and thus restore the factory starting point. It is not unusual for this type of behavior, especially after a series of power fails. Let me kow if the hard reset works.

HI,

Why don't you try to restore it to the factorey defaults if there is ny switch at the bac.You can also do a hard reset by unplugign all the cords of the unit for 30min and then pluging it back again.

Goodluck,

    Press TV view on your remote to bring up the video 1 appears on the TV.

    Also check page # 22 and 23 of the user guide for further instructions on how to get the clock settings back.

  • Jaime Hernandez Apr 04, 2008

    That is a good sign because the DVD is responding to the remote.

    Do you have the original remote for this device?

    If you do the instructions on how to navigate through the VCR menu from page # 21 and 22 should work unless the VCR's got damage by the power outage.

    To search for the active channels in your area page # 23 should work for you, just try to go back to the RF; just the way you had working before.

  • Jaime Hernandez Apr 04, 2008

    Thank you.

    Try restore the device to factory settings, see page # 31. also you can try pressing and hold POWER for 8 seconds to restore normal operation.

Change your Monitor/TV to channel 2 and you should see your blue menu screen and be able to reset it to it's previous state, as I assume your snowy screen is showing up on channel 3.

Had power outage and now VCR/DVD does not turn back on. lights all work but it doesn't seem to pick up the channel?


Dis-connect the plug from the wall receptical and other leads attached to to the unit. Next press and hold power for too minutes in an attempt to reset the microprocessor, now hook everything back up and power on, if this fails it probably would be cheaper to replace the combo than have it repaired.

RCA model DRC8335 Loosing the date and time


That will be a problem from the text side of the broadcast, the clock is set from the text transmission, ( in other words a problem from the transmitter ) possibly due to digital switchover or work on the transmitters. One possible solution would be to turn off auto clock setting, and/or auto summer time adjustment.

GO VIDEO DV2150


you can try going from the wall to the dvd/vcr first then to the cable box then to the TV. It may find the channels but they might not be in the order you usually wouls see them i.e chan 4 may be chan 34 etc. this will only work on an analog connection, if you have digital cable box it will not work. other than that, you have to control everythng from the cable box and the dvd remains on chan 3 at all times.
