Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

1 Answer

I bought a Panasonic Video / DVD recorder less than three and-a-half years ago costing nearly three hundred pounds. I did not mind paying that money because I THOUGHT I was buying a reliable brand. It is now broken and to repair it will cost nearly TWO HUNDRED POUNDS. And that is on top of the fifty pounds that I have already paid out to have the machine collected. I have receipts etc to substantiate my claim.

That is to be expected from a unit manufactured in some hell-hole on China or Thailand. Actually is you access their support section from their site, they clearly state that the life expectancy for your device is 4 (four) years.
There is nothing anyone here can do to help you - you bought an overpriced lemon. Take as a life lesson and move on, not worth losing your temper on this anymore.

I have a HTC Desire that I bought before 8 months on Three Network from United Kingdom.Now I have moved to a different country but my cellphone seems to be network locked.How can I unlock it now?


I bought my HTC Desire from Three Network about half a year ago. Just a couple of days ago, I called Three at 333 to get my unlock code. It took about half an hour to verify me and my credit card details. I suppose you could call their international number at 00447782333333. It costs me 15.32 pounds to unlock.

Is third time a charm. Again several years ago I


Here is the owner's manual for your DVD machine. This is a VHS recorder but not a DVD recorder. To record VHS tapes to DVDs, you will need a DVD recorder.
You will plug the yellow video out connector on the VHS to the yellow 'Video in' connector on the DVD Recorder. Do the same for the red and white audio connections, out on the VHS, IN on the DVD Recorder. Connect your TV to the DVD recorder so you can see the picture you are recording.

Panasonic dmr-e55 need code to work with our dish. codes listed in dish network book won't work?? HELP


We would be happy to help you with that. Here is a list of codes that should address your DISH Network remote to your Panasonic DVD Recorder: 627, 614, 777, 633, 554, and 628.

Press and hold the DVD/VCR button located on the top of the remote until all the mode buttons at the top of the remote light up, then release. Use the number buttons to enter one of the codes for your Panasonic DVD Recorder, then press the pound (#) button. If the code entered is valid for the remote, the mode light flashes three times. To check that the code works try several different functions on the remote to make sure it will properly operate your Panasonic DVD Recorder. Keep in mind that some codes may not be compatible with your equipment. If this is the case, please try the other codes listed for that device until you find one that is compatible with your equipment. We hope this helps and thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

I bought a Toshiba DVR about 3 years ago and ever sence I bought it, it has never recorded anything on any DVD+R OR DVD+RW that i could find and it will not even play already recorded dvd's or play half of...


Don't understand why you didn't take it back and ask for your money back 3 years ago? I suggest you go to an legal advice center and see if you can still do something about it.

It sounds like the lazer or lens could be faulty. However it could be just a bad soldering joint.

Converting NTSC home Video tapes to Pal DVD or NTSC DVD


You need either an NTSC DVD recorder (keep in mind that the US has 110 voltage, while Australia does not), or a computer card that supports NTSC. Some video capture cards support both NTSC and PAL (often switchable). Choose good quality, and pay attention to video/sound sync - some bad quality cards loose sync. Once the tapes are transferred to DVD - and keep it native NTSC all the way, they can be played on virtually any PAL DVD player/TV combo. With an NTSC source, it's best NOT to convert to PAL, while with a PAL source in the US, you'd need to convert to NTSC or only show the DVD on a computer (where NTSC/PAL doesn't matter).

Compressor


Hello
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

I believe your problem is an old compressor about to go!
At 11 years old My advice is do not put good money into bad!
A new fridge will pay for itself in a few years by using a lot less electricity!

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.
Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Freezer works but frige dosent get cold enough.


Welcome to fixya richarddl53,

You said, you have a side by side about fifteen years old need to know what type freon to charge it with.

The freon that's used in the old refrigerators is not legal now!
They started using a newer kind of freon years ago that does not deplete the ozone layer.
Yes you are low on freon, but that's because you have a leak somewhere.
And if by chance you could acquire the freon that you need to add into the older model fridge, it will just leak out again shortly!
My opinion is that you should not put good money into bad!
A new refrigerator uses less electricity than a fridge that is ten years old.
And yours uses 10% more than that!
you will see the differents in you utility bill as it will pay for it self in a few years!

Panasonic rear projection TV 47 in PT 47WX49


Camaroguy: This exact problem happened to us about 8 months ago. A board had to be replaced at a cost of $500. Yesterday, the convergence has gone on the set. You get a blue and yellow shadow on the picture. From what I have been reading, this has happened on a few TVs and it will cost another $500 or so. We refuse to pour more money down the drain so we just went out and bought a new plasma (RCA) for half what it cost us for the Panasonic 4 years ago. We have never had a problem with RCA in the past (two tvs for 20 years a piece).
