Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

My Element ELETT221 has a USB connector on the back panel with no information in the manual or in onscreen menus about how it works or how I can access it. I plugged in a thumb drive with photos, videos and MP3 files on it, the busy light on the drive flickered for a few seconds, but nothing showed up on the screen. How do I use it or what is it for? Is it a service access port?

SOURCE: This morning the screen is black...

The black screen with audio working ok is the inverter card.
Just replaced mine. It is CMO part number VIT70002.00

The inverter provides the high voltage necessary to drive the cold cathode lighting.

A new card is about $180 but shud save having to dump the set.
Card is located on left side of the display (as viewed from the back).

Onscreen volume display not showing up naymore

Try this out:

Click the Start button on Windows Taskbar located at the bottom
side of the screen and then select Programs, Hot Key Manager,
Configuration from the menus that appear.

To enable onscreen volume control message,
check the Show volume controls onscreen checkbox.

This is the recipe for the 2000-model, but I believe it should be the same for the 5000.

The manual for the 5000 can be found here:

Surround speakers don't work

Hello barstep,

Let's go through some steps that will help alleviate your problem. We'll start from the simple to the not so obvious:

1.- Perform a visual inspection on the back of the receiver and verify that all speaker connections (specially the surrounds) are not loose, shorting out another connection or are pushed too deep into the speaker connector so the wire insulation prevents proper contact. If this is not the problem then...
2.- Get into your receiver's "Manual Setup" and verify that your surround speakers are set either to "SML" or "LRG" but not "NONE".
3.- Verify the receiver is not in "Straight" mode, shown on the receiver's display. I f so, press the "Straight" front panel button until indication disappears.

Your owner's manual can give you detailed information to access the setup menus.
Hope this information helps. Let me know if we can further assist you.
