SOURCE: Hi! My digital box - Matsui

Hi,

Initially and assuming there was a momentary power interruption, this it is possible that the system has just a glitch and all it needs is a reset. Unplug from the mains for an hours or so to dissipate any residual power and thereafter try again.

Should this be not corrective, then it is possible that the unit has sustained a hardware fault and therefore would require opening up. Further, it needs familiarity with electronic components and circuitry, use of a DVM and a soldering iron as well as access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable doing a DIY, then perhaps your best bet would be to call it in for service.

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.

Tip

What to do when you only have Green on a CRT Projection TV.


If you have a picture, but only in green on a 3 crt projection TV, I would try turning up the drive for the red and blue guns. They have probably changed over time and red and blue have lost drive and need a boost. Green makes up 70 percent of the picture compared to red and blue so the drive would not have to drop much to lose red and green but still have green. Keep in mind that this does mean that the CRTs are dying and may not have too much time left.

To turn up the drives first remove the back cover on the bottom half of the machine. Be very careful as you will have to work on this unit live. Do not touch anything other than what I tell you and keep one hand in your pocket whenever possible.

First look at the space above the main circuit board. Somewhere across the beam supporting the CRTs you will see a square box with 6 controls (shafts). You can locate the box if you follow the wires from the flyback to the box. The flyback is located on the power board and produces the high voltage. It will have 4 large red rubber wires coming out of it. Three go to the focus divider block (the box in question) then they go on to the crts (red, green, blue).

Once you locate the focus divider look at it closely. The focus controls are on top and the drives are on the bottom. They should be marked red, green and blue. You want to turn up the red and blue. Tune a picture with as much black as possible. While watching it turn up the red until you see a red tint or streak then turn down until it just disappears. Do the same with the blue. You may want to touch up the green also for good color balance.

If the set is working OK and the CRTs have enough drive left, your picture should look normal.

Caroline, i am sorry to hear you troubles, and i don`t have any good news for you, the flashing of the power light indicates a fault and its more than just replacing a fuse, there are many protection circuits in your TV to prevent an even more costly repair and one of them is not happy. sorry

Cant retune my digtal freeview as my picture keeps freezing


The retuning process is as follows:

  1. Press the [i+] or MENU button on the remote control to display the DIGITAL INFO menu.
  2. Press the BLUE button to display the MAIN MENU.
  3. Press the UP or DOWN buttons to highlight AUTO TUNING then press the OK button to display the AUTO TUNING MENU.
  4. Press the RED button to start the auto tuning process for all available digital channels.
  5. Wait for the process to complete.

If you wish to CANCEL the auto tuning process whilst it is processing then press the BLUE button at any time.

You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

maybe your ac cable has a lost contact thats why when you wiggle it it will turn on. just replace your power cable first before you are going to troubleshoot the other problem.
