DVDRHD400F tuner has no sound.

Hi, my device will play DVD's fine with sound, but I get no sound from the freeview tuner. I have tried re-tuning many times, but nothing works. I knoe the signal is adequate as it worked previously for over a year & another freeview box works fine. It is broken or have the kids changed some setting that I can't find? Any advice? Hi I have a Wharfdale dvd recorder with 80gb hard drive and digital freeview receiver dvdrhd400f. I get sound when I play back a dvd or previously recorded progams on the hard drive but when I want to watch freeview or record from freeview I get no sound could you advise what I cam try to get the freeview sound working again.
many thanks
David

You can diagnose which device is causing the problem quite easily. Connect an audio source such as a output wire from a small stereo to an RCA plug. With the volume on low plug the audio source into the right and then the left port where the freview connects to the input on your DVD player. If the audio passes through to your speakers, you know the DVD player is functioning properly.
Now, to test the output of the freeview: Get a pair of amplified computer speakers. They have cheap ones at walmart for 10 dollars, If you keep the receipt you can even bring them back. Next, go to radioshack and get an adapter cable to convert the 1/8" stereo input plug on the PC speakers to male RCA phono plugs(If you keep the receipt you can bring this back too within 30 days). Now, plug the RCA Adapter cable into the R/L output jacks on the freeview, then plug the 1/8" Stereo plug from the amplified PC speakers into the adapter no plugged into the freeview. Power up the freeview and the speakers(make sure the volume is up on the PC speakers. If you get sound out of the speakers the Freeview is putting out audio.
At this point you will know which unit is causing the problem. If they both work you have a set of bad cables, But I'm sure you already checked them and they are plugged in properly.
Once you figure out which device is giving you problems you can concentrate you efforts on troubleshooting that device(Settings,mute,source,ect...)

I will even call you with my yahoo phone out if you need live support. I do this for a hobby so it will all be free of course. I just like fixing things.
Hope this helps you out or at least points you in the right direction.

The circuit board where the tuner is placed have a crack ,or cold solder joint parts .That's why no movie or freeview comes out,The only thing you do is little reheating works, so it will works again better.


Good luck..

    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...

My Logik freeview box has will not tune some channels - most are fine. What can be done to fix this?


Usually that is caused by poor signal strength or a faulty tuner inside the receiver. Replacement boxes are only £18 upwards.

Can't tune in tv with dvd freeview.it states ext link problem


If you've connected the DVD to the TV via HDMI or SCART you shouldn't need to 'tune it in', just select the HDMI or SCART input. If your TV is also a Freeview device and you want to tune it to Freeview, where you have the aerial connected to the DVD recorder, you need to also connect the DVD recorder to the TV via an RF cable or aerial flylead so that the aerial signal passes through the DVD recorder. It's all in the instructions

No sound on the tv


As TV and DVD playing reproduces sound, you have to check TVs tuner function first. Connect the TV to external areal by connecting areal via areal socket. Make an auto-tune function. Refer the user manual about how to make an auto-tune to local on-air program. Make sure that, the TV reproduces picture and sound normally. If it is correct, your TV is perfect in all respect. If not, the tuner to your TV should be replaced with same type and number.

I have a Grundig TV P37-080GB or G.CG61-02GBM bought in UK. Using Auto Tuning I can find local TV channels but the audio to each of these channels does not work. I get a hissing sound as gets when not...


Hi.

If you are using the TV in UK, and you are using the internal digital tuner (aerial cable to TV), then the TV may be defective (faulty tuner or audio circuit). In that case call Grundig at the number listed on manual.
If TV is using an external digi box (eg. freeview), then check connection from box to TV, test using a different connection cable. Test using a DVD, if TV works on DVD replace the digi box.

If you are trying to use the TV outside UK, and you are using the internal digital tuner, then there may be a problem with signal. In that case purchase a tuner box and connect it to the TV.

DVDRHD400F tuner has no sound.


Yep -same problem, but I bought mine for £18 at an auction, thought I'd done so well, but no warantee!!
-Doh. Sound perfect from DVD, so not a scart issue. Tried factory reset / retune, no joy. Freeview silent. Warfdale, you used to be the best in the world; what's gone wrong? :(

Wharfedale DVDR24HD250 DVD Recorder When set up will not find any programmes on Automatic Programme Search (APS)


Products such as this will use an internal tuner to tune channels, this tuner will not detect your televisions freeview stations, to record from your television, connect scart out from tv to the scart in on the recorder, then select the scart A/V channel, use the television to select the channel you want to record, you will not be able to record 1 freeview channel and watch another freeview chanel as you only have 1 digital tuner (in the television) the recorder does not have freeview built in.. hope that helps

Can't re patch tv with set top box to watch tv


Hi.

Ok here goes.

1) Take airial lead from the wall socket in to antenna in on freeview box.

2) connect short usually black airial type lead in to antenna out socket on freeview. plug the other end of this lead in to aerial in on vcr.

3) connect the other end of this aerial type lead to airial plug on the back of tv.

4) now if you have 2 or more scart sockets on the back of tv set plug in the scarts in this order.
Freeview box scart with tv on it connect to scart 1 on tv set.
Freeview box vcr scart connect to vcr in scart socket on vcr.
Vcr scart marked tv plug scart from here to scart 2 on tv
If you have 3 scart sockets on tv you can connect dvd using scart to scart socket 3 on tv.

If Tv has only 1 scart the aerial leads will stay the same as I have stated,
Freeview must go to scart socket on tv set.
leave second scart from freeview to vcr plugged in so you can record freeview by putting vcr to line 1 or AV 1.
you will need to put tv on channel (0) & tune this channel to the video play a tape that you recognise then go to tv tuning & tune tv untill you see video playing then store this on channel (0).
DO NOT USE AUTO TUNING IT WILL PUT CHANNELS IN THE WRONG ORDER JUST USE MANUAL TUNING.

Now to view Dvd you will either need to purchase A scart switch box. Or have keep unpluging freeview scart from tv so you can plug in dvd .

If your tv has red yellow white phono sockets you can plug dvd in to these, you may need to purchase phono leads.

Hope this helps.
