Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I Have 3 Strong 5200 Digital Top Boxes at home. They have been great units until recently when the 3 units started playing up. The main problem is they turn off and on when I'm recording and sometimes will turn on and off when I'm not even using one of them. What do you think the problem might be.Thanks, Paul

Hi Bernarra,

Alot of set top boxes suffer from mains interference and this could be your problem as you're suddenly getting 3 boxes doing it.

Try putting an RFI Suppression anti surge mains lead on one of the boxes and see if that helps.

Regards

Andy

How to fix play on tata xenon 3l dicor power steering unit


Most power steering units have two adjusters--one one the lower end for main bearing adjustment, but the one on top (just like manual steering boxes) is all you usually need to adjust. With front end jacked up and engine running adjust screw inward until drag is felt in steering wheel with wheels pointing straight ahead, then loosen just a touch until no bind is felt as steering is turned back and forth through center of steering.

My converter box, which was working fine until about two months ago, will not change channels, although the remote will turn the converter box on and off.


Is the converter on any particular channel?
Are there set top controls? Do they work?
Do you have a picture?
Has any thing been changed recently, like wiring?
Have any children been playing with the remote?

Apex converter boxes malfunction.


If the converter box wont power on and makes a cyclic whinging noise, it may be one of the 4 470uF caps on the low voltage side of the power supply. Check for domed tops on the caps nearest the fly back transformer (center of the board). I replace all four of those caps just to be sure and it is playing fine now.

Dvd wont play ...each time you insert a DVD it shows DVD HO2...


I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off

that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)

How to format nokia 5200??


Here’s how to hard reset or format your Nokia mobile phone:
1) Switch off your phone
2) Press and hold these 3 keys together:
-green dial key
-the star key(*)
-the number 3 key (Ugh, I wish I had three hands…!!)
3) Power on the phone

Warning: Do not release the keys until you see a formatting screen and even after the phone has started. Wait until the initial sound starts to play and the hand animation is displayed.
