Re: TV WILL NOT TURN OFF
It sounds like your approaching the end of your lamp's life. Most projection televisions have internal lamp timers. These lamp timers usually give you time to buy a new bulb before it needs to be replaced.

God Bless Motorola For Giving Us Cable Boxes With No Buttons!
ok, does your remote have lights that flash when you hit buttons?
for example pushing volume lights up tv. if the cable light doesn't flash then it may need reprogrammed. if none of this applies to your remote... sorry
Hello!!! Remotes can be tricky sometimes!!! Try a power scan. It scans the TV for the right code, instead of inputting codes.
1. Hold down the Clear TV button until all lights at the top of the remote light up
2. Press the red TV POWER button
3. Press and release the up arrow on the remote about once a second until the tv turns off.
4. When it turns off, press the # (Pound) button
5. Try powering the tv on/off, and try the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over at step 1 again.
TRY Unplug receiver. Leave for 10mins. Plug in again. Wait another 10 mins. Press the hand control stand by button. In a few minutes the light should turn green and start options should appear. Good luck. This works when my HD box freezes.
Please note that we are currently aware of an issue affecting some Thomson DTi6300 boxes.
If your DTR will not come out of standby and is not responding to your remote control, please try the following procedures.
Step 1: Power cycle
First of all, remove the power to the box and wait 20 seconds before restoring power.
Wait while the box tries to restart and allow 2 -3 minutes for this to complete.
Try this at least twice.
If it doesn't go to the solid green light then proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Front Panel Reset
Note: This procedure will unfortunately cause you to lose all of the
recordings that you have stored on the box. You will need to be able
access the back of the DTR and the front panel buttons
1. Remove power to the unit by removing the power cable from the back of the DTR.
2. Wait 20 seconds and restore the power cable while holding in the standby/power on button on the front panel of the DTR.
3. Release the standby button immediately you see a light 'blip' on the
DTR front display and then immediately press the following front panel
arrow buttons in sequence Up>Down>Left>Right
4.The DTR will now show the Orange LED with the Green LED flashing
until the format has been completed in about 60 seconds. The DTR will
return to ON automatically.
5. If requested, perform a channel scan to complete the operation.

remove power at plug socket when you plug power back in start to repeatedly press the standby button on the front of the box when this causes the orange light to stop flashing press the buttons up, down, left, right (these buttons are on the front of the box not the remote)
this causes the hard drive to reset itself WARNING this will cause the box to completely reformat meaning you will loose all data recorded
just found this solution and it worked for me ............. though it wiped the hard drive ............ basically restores to factory settings
turn all power off and back on again press stand by button repeatedly until flashing amber light is n constant them quickly press up down left right in that order as quick as you can .............
