    When I press setup with the remote ajuste general comes up, and all the settings under it are in spanish. I am using the original remote and manuel, like I said before initial setting never comes up, for me to hit english.

Press Setup on the remote > General Settings (the first option down) > Display (the second option in this list) > OSD Language *the first line) and choose your language (English should be the first in the list). Use the up/down arrows to change lines followed by Enter to select the option.

If you are using a universal remote that doesn't have the setup button that works, you need a different remote. has a new remote almost identical to the one that came with the unit as well as used remotes. .

I hope this helps.

    The Spanish labels are in the same place which is why I gave the order in the lists.

    ajuste general = general adjustment

    Literal translations would be:

    Sistema General = General Setup

    Demostración = Display

    Lengua de OSD (if the abbreviation is kept)
    En Pantalla Lengua de Demostración (otherwise) = OSD Language
    Inglés = English

    I hope this helps.

    You are seeing the Setup screen (ajuste inicial) that you need. You just need to find the appropriate line even if it is in Spanish. Most of the time there will be one word that will be similar to the English
    like general/general, Language/Lengua.

    I hope this helps.

    There must be a reason why I cant program it in english,, this doesn,t solve my problem. Somebody out there must know whats causing. Why should I have to translate it back to english, Thanks for nothing

  • Cindy Wells Aug 31, 2010

    I can't tell you why the unit is set for Spanish On-screen Display. I can only tell you that you can change it back to English - it has only a few language choices. Three steps: press Setup. On the first screen, choose the first line by highlighting it (the word general will be part of the text) and press Enter. On next menu screen, choose the second one down (Display/Demonstracion) and press Enter. Select the first line for OSD Language (Lengua in Spanish) and press Enter. Finally select English which should be your first choice (in Spanish it reads Ingles). Press Enter and then Setup to exit the menu.

    After that all your OSD menus should return to being in English.

    (all of my units have options for French, English and Spanish menus. Swapping them is easy and is a simple way for someone to practice their second and third language skills when they want to.)

  • Cindy Wells Sep 01, 2010

    You need enough Spanish (mostly words that are very similar in both languages) to reset the unit. Then you can put it into English and leave it there. After that you can forget the Spanish. (Alternatively just reset it by the places in the menus and ignore the Spanish.)

We have a Philips DVD Recorder a Freeserve Digital box and a TV. Since adding the DVD Recorder we cannot tune in Freeserve at all and DVD's play only in black and white. Help Please. ...

Hi Jack,

And if you remove the DVD Recorder, everything is back to normal?

Initially, I would suspect that your DVD is set to PAL system and not to NTSC (or could be the other way around). Could you pls post back with the exact model number of the Philips DVD Recorder?

Additionally, could you pls detail how the Freeserve Digital box is connected to the Philips DVD Recorder and then to the TV? Pls indicate if you are using Video IN/OUT, S-Video, HDMI, SCART, RF IN/OUT.

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.

When I turn my Toshiba D-VR4 recorder on, it won't go to DVD

I figured it out with absolutely no help from the manual. To initiate recording, you have to press the timer/set button. After the DVD recorder finishes recording, you have to re-press the timer/set button to take it out of recording mode. I think their book needs to explain that more clearly.

Recording with comcast hd box and toshiba VCR/DVD

1st, see if you can get another cable box that offers component as well as RCA outputs on the back. Does your cable box have S Video out and does your toshiba have S Video in? If so, hook up the S Video from cable box to Toshiba. Then hook up R&W audio from Cable Box out to Toshiba In. Set the channel on the cable box to what you want to record. Set Toshiba to record channel 3 or 4, whichever your Toshiba is set on. The cable box controls the channel you are recording. You cannot set the recorder to the channel you want to record. It must be either 3 or 4. Try it. If everything else fails, you have to go cable from wall to cable in on cable box, cable out on cable box to cable in on Toshiba then either cable or RCA out on Toshiba to TV.

Taping to VCR from Camcorder


If the camera is attached to the VCR using the yellow, red & white RCA cables or the S-Video cable, then the VCR has to be set to AV or Video IN.

On the otherhand, if the VCR is connected through the RF OUT to the TV's ANT/Cable/RF IN, then the TV has to be set at either Channel 3 or 4.

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.
