Your unit needs to clean and some resoldering works due brittle,crack or cold solder joint parts,this is very common to this unit.Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the receiver turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

Again on the assumption of no defective parts, then seeking a more experienced buddy for the soldering might be to your advantage. This is of course in addition to the possible electrical hazards when repairing....If i have helped,please click fixya.It is the only way i get paid for my work...

Good luck:

Why is my remote control not working despite changing the batteries.


Not sure if this will help but, I recently put an antenna on the roof of my house. I don't watch TV much but wanted to enjoy some TV, but my remote locked up and the side buttons on the TV wouldn't work either. I tried changing the battery, but no luck. There's a broadcast station 64.2 that is locking up TV's & remotes. Here's the fix that a TV repair co. gave me which did break the lock of the station 64.2.

1) unplug antenna (not roof but connection from TV to wall)
2) unplug and plug back in TV
3) find a way via remote or side buttons to scan channels
4) Go to Menu
5) EZ Setup
6) Channel Set Up-Scan Channels
7) Channel Memory
8) Digital Set Up
9) Turn Skip On for 64.2 (Delete this Channel)
10) Turn off TB
11) Hook Antenna back

You may have to play with the order to acheive the end result or figure out a way to delete 64.2, but during the process you will at least unlock from being stuck on 64.2.

Good Luck if this was the same issue!

you have to connect the tv tuner directly to the coax cable coming in. The receiver will not tune tv channels. You can then connect the tv to the receiver via optical cable

Have a pro 82 hand held weather alert scanner. I have it on scan but its not scanning


It may not be detecting the channels, can you manually change channels and tune into radio activity, if you can't the channel selection is not working. The expence to repair will not justify the cost of a new one.

Radio Shack (Realistic) PRO-2020 Scanner stuck in Scan Mode


Sounds like old age - the 2020 is nearly 30 years old! Have you tried just using the LOCKOUT feature on all channels except the you want? How about just programming the same frequency into all 20 channels?

Cant get digital channal on my DCP 501


From page 24 of the Installation Section

The clear protective film on the DCP501 display must be removed and transferred to the inside back cover of your
DCP501 Home Theater System User Guide. The Unit Address and Serial Number found on the protective film is
required for activation of your DCP501 cable TV receiver by your cable TV service provider.


On Page 28 -

Do not disconnect the cable connection between the RF In and To RF In ports. Removal of this
cable could disrupt operation of the DCP501.

IMPORTANT! The digital cable feature of your Motorola DCP501 can be activated only in
certain cable systems throughout North America. Contact your local cable TV provider to
determine whether the digital cable feature of your Motorola DCP501 can be activated. In cable
systems where the digital cable feature cannot be activated, you may connect an external cable
receiver provided by your local cable provider. For best results, connect an external cable
receiver through the audio and video inputs on the back of your DCP501.

Dvd hookup


No need to play down...many guys are just as untechnical.

Players have three connections. Typically, your tv has similar inputs located on it and plug in goes color to color. Yellow is the video. Red is always the right speaker (on any system). White is the left channel. Insert a known good DVD and press play before you actually do the switchover so you can see it working in the next step. Now...set your TV to component input (it may be TV/Vid on your remote). Your TV manual should tell you how to do this. There may be more than one input...press that button again. It will come through.

If your tv doesn't have these connections, there are similar ones on your VCR...you can 'play through' by setting component input and then getting the VCR to send it on through on a TV channel. Start with the VCR tuning a channel and then switch over to component...Same deal...start the DVD first.

Not getting sound from right speaker


How do you have the audio hooked up from the TV set? If its s video or RCA plugs? If it is switch them around and see if it swaps channels that goes out . If it does then the output cable or the jack is bad. If your using an HDMI ir a scart cable. The cable or connections could be bad. Unplug it and reinsert it or while the units on mover it around and see if the audio comes back on.
