My microwave is not working at all. It is showing a code that says E-5 or S-5, I can't tell. What is this?


Hello,

Sorry to hear your having problems! Are you able to reach the plug, if so try unplugging it and plugging back in! This may reset your microwave? If not, here are a couple of website links you might try...

Or you can do a web- search typing in: Samsung Microwave 1.8 Cu Ft Codes

If you would like me to do the searches for you, I'll be happy too, just reply back.

Kind Regards!

Looks like it is out of convergence but the center or the picture looks fine I thought maybe pincushion or horizontal width problem


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Ok, this seems to be a common problem amongst us techno-phobic couch potatos ( just kidding), sounds like tv input is not selected on right channel input. make sure pins on s-video are not bent or missing, if they are, you need a new s-video cable, try connection through the red/white/yellow cables, make sure that you have correct input selected on tv set ( example: S-video, component1 , aux 1,HDMI1, and so on.) put dvd in player and keep going till you get the right one. in ,my experience, the R/W/Y cable is component1 and of course, s-video, is well, s-video, kinda self explanatory...

I CAN RECORD FROM MY TV BUT I CANT GET MY ARCHOS 5 TO SHOW ON THE TV ,WHEN I PLUG MY ARCHOS INTO THE DVR STATION THE OPTION TO SET IT UP FOR TV DOES NOT COME UP . I WOULD BE VERY GREAT FULL FOR ANY HELP,...


You should swtch your TV to the video mode on to the video output chosen for the device. Check the video connecion type by following the output cables from the DVR station or charging dock to to TV. it could be video 1, 2, 3 HDMI, Color stream HD1 , Color stream HD 2, by scrolling down on the video mode list you should get the picture on on of them with correct video mode. or like i was saying follow the output cable from dvr station to Tv to see which video mode it was connected.

What's the insid of the TV look like?


Basically, what you have is a convergence problem, very,very common amongst rear projection TVs. Here is a link to a website where the guy shows step by step including pictures on how to fix it yourself. If not, the repair costs anywhere from $250-400. Best of luck.

Notebook connection to tv


S-Video - This is probably the most common method out there currently because an S-Video cable is cheap as heck and just about every TV under the sun has a S-Video port. You’ll have to make sure you laptop is equipped with this port. Remember, there are two types of S-Video cables: 4-pin and 7-pin. Most laptops and PC’s are equipped with a 7-pin port, so if your TV only has a 4-pin S-Video port, then this method will not work.

VCR shows "PLAY" on machine but doesn't show on TV


Hi,

If even the sound aside from the video is not reproduced on the TV, then your description "connect" indicates that the TV is not set to receive the audio/video signals from the VCR. Initially, pls try:
  • set the TV to Channel 3 (or 4); or
  • set the TV to A/V, Video 1 or Aux 1.
Additionally, you need to confirm how the VCR is hooked to the TV unit, bu a single coaxial cable or 3 cables with RCA connectors (yellow, red & white).

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.
