Question about Audiovox FPE1078 7.8 in. TV/DVD Combo

Still having issues

Hi there,
You posted a solution to my problem before with only being able to use the remote to turn on & off the tv, continuous channel searching when I switch to TV from DVD mode, etc. I don't have a cable box, it's just a cable line from the tv to the wall, and the cable people have checked and think it's not the cable, it's the tv. Any ideas? Once I tried turning on the power and clicking the tiny "program" button on top of the tv with a pencil, which got it back to normal for a week or so, but now I'm back to the same issues.

Thanks!
Carol

    I'm having several problems with my tv. First, as of today I can only turn it on using the remote, not the power button on the tv itself. When I do turn it on, it goes automatically into DVD mode, but when I switch the mode to tv, it goes through a blue screen channel search, climbing into the 100s, briefly flashing a picture on channel 2, then goes back into the search endlessly. I can only turn off the tv at that point by unplugging it. Is it the tv? My cable? Please help!

    What source are you using? If cable, you should only be able to pickup channel 3 or 4 if you're using the box. If there is no antenna, that would be the only other answer if the set checks out...accordianman

    Okay. It's coming back to me..Be sure that you have CATV selected as your antenna options, and then run a setup sequence (which I believe the set wants to do anyway) and see if that does it. If not, the TV will require what is known as a tuner pack, as this one might very well be toast. I hope this helps...accordianman

    Pull up your on-screen menu and find the desired options you want. All the different options this set has to offer are done from the on-screen prompts....accordianman

Bush 32 inch Tv is stuck on standby and 2 year old has broken the remote control. The tv is set up for child lock so pressing the buttons manually is not helping. Have just purchased a universal remote...


If you unplug the power cord, let it sit for a minute and plug it back in, it should let you turn the tv on by the button at least once. Then you can at least get the remote linked up. Please reply back to your post if this resolved the issue. I would rather you try this first before going further.

Zenith TVBR1352Z TV/VCR combo. I cannot get a code to allow my Philips/Direct TV remote to control the TV/VCR. All I really need it to do is control the volume


Turn on your TV (or other device). You will have to do this manually until you program your Philips remote control

Look for the "Setup" or "Code Search" button on the Philips remote control. Which button your remote has will depend on the exact Philips remote control you are using. This button may be a different color or may be labeled.

Hold either the "Setup" or "Code Search" button for about 10 seconds. If your remote has a light, the light should begin blinking. If there is no light, you can just count to 10 and then let go of the button.

Press the "TV" button on the remote to program the Philips remote to your television set

Find and press either the "Up" or "Down" channel button on the remote. Continue pressing either button until the television channel changes. This may take several minutes. Once the channel changes, press the "Power" button on the remote to turn off the TV. Your Philips remote will now be programmed to your television.

Code for universal remote


Hi XX,

Sorry to disappoint you but most universal remotes would not work outright with a combo unit. You might be able to make it work for the TV but will not work in the DVD/VCR or vice-versa.

A shot in the dark, pls post back your remote's make and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

FDM-0700A


Hi everyone, I don't know if you have solved your issues yet or not, since these posts are from a while ago, but I have had the same issue. The problem is that of the back-light inverter circuit. The original part is defective and the chip that powers the coils will continually burn out. You can pick up a cheaper replacement substitute here:

http://www.lcdparts.net/InverterDetail.aspx?InverterNumber=UI8007S-1MSS

The part can be found just behind the screen on the bottom if you take the back panel of the screen off.

Hope this helps1

Code for Direct TV remote control


Program AV1 with 20695, program TV with 10765, then switch to AV1, press select/mute, enter 933, and press select

This will allow volume and mute controls while in DTV mode and allow power on and off while in TV mode. This worked for me on the RC32 remote control.

Best of luck

Toshiba MD20FP3 Combo does not turn on. Help!


Not unless you have taken the time to learn all the safety issues concerning the HI voltage safety facts, in the repair of electronics? It sounds like your tv has a problem in the sweep/power supply circuits, and since these sets have NO user serviceable parts< its best too leave these types of repairs to a certified electronic technician. Good Luck

Tv wont turn on ???


sounds like a power regulator problem, a horizontal drive problem,or the horizontal output is shorted because of a bad flyback transformer. If your not a technician there are no user serviceable parts inside these sets and i would advise you to take the set to a pro and have it diagnosed as you could get seriously killed fooling around inside of a tv set. God Luck
