    the reset button was said to press because
    "so that the unit shall recover from the problem its software was facing.
    and in and u pressed it.

    the camera in an attempt to correct the solution has damaged the software inside it.

    you can try few solutions

    ---try updating the firmware
    ---try a hard reset
    ---try flashing the memory

    if all this fails then u have only one go.

    get the software reinstalled by the service center.

  • dewan nafees ahmed Jun 14, 2008

    this is what i would suggest you.

    thank you

    dont forget to accept the solution if u go by it.

    have a good day.

    good luck

A Magnavox TV was purchased by my sister at WalMart a couple of months ago. The Model Number is CT270MW8A. My sister and I are unable to get any Code we find in instructions/guides to program a Direct TV...

The following code is the most popular for your brand. 10054
Setup Instructions
  • Set the "Mode Switch" to TV.
  • Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
  • Enter the 5 digit Code above.
  • Try your new code and tell us how it worked!

    My sharp 32c540 picture is dark since i bought it brand new 6 years ago.

    You may just have to make a different kind of adjustment.

    This is what is called a direct view or crt type TV.

    Inside on the main board (see attached photo) is the "flyback" transformer.

    Note the two little controls embedded in it----top one is focus--leave it alone.

    Lower one is SCREEN and a very slight upwards or right adjustment will bring the overall brightness up.

    You want to adjust it just till with brightness on set all the way up you have a normal picture.

    Too much and you get excessive brightness and trace lines and or further too much shuts set off.

    Some sets have two holes in back of cabinet and small tool can get in and adjust the LOWER or screen control and others the back has to be removed.

    Lay set face down on padded surface, remove back screws and set upright---do not touch anything inside with set on when you make the adjustment--control is plastic and a plastic tool a good idea--I have used regular screwdriver but know what not to do.

    Let me know if you have questions 98% chance just need the Master Screen bumped up a little bit.

    We are getting ghost images and the color is not correct

    I have red concave lines going across the screen, plus wording appears double like a ghosting effect, this is ongoing from the time the tv is turned on until it is turned off. This started 3 days ago. Is it time for a new tv, its 9 or 10 yrs old now.

    Looking for codes for universal rca rcr430s remote control

    You can find the remote control codes for difrent brands of devices from

    If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

    1. Searching For Your Code

    If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
    If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.
    1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
    2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
    3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
    4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
      Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
    5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

    2. Learn the buttons from the original

    Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
    1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
    2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
    3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
    4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash radidly.
    5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

    Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
    To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned
