Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Daewoo DS608P Freeview box which will not detect any chennels. The pre=scan and scan appear normal, but nothing is detected. The TV, which has no Scart socket, works fine on analogue, and I have tried the Daewoo box on another TV which usually works with a Humax box, but with the same result. I presume the tuner must be at fault, but is this repairable or can you assist me in locating a similar Daewoo or other brand replacement for my TV without Scart? Many thanks, Barry J. Webb.

    Thanks for the message, but I have another make of box which is working normally, and have been able to buy a replacement for the Daewoo. The precise purpose of these boxes is to cope with the change in transmission mode in the U.K., which will come into force next Autumn in my area (Cornwall). I have opened the Daewoo box, and note signs of excessive heat either side of what I take to be a memory chip. I therefore suspect that the tuner is scanning correctly, but that the channels are not being stored due to the memory failure. R.I.P.! Thanks anyway.

Have an lcd2010a wharfedale colour tv since 2005. It is out of warranty. Problem. switch on tv obtain sound and picture for 1 to 2 hours or even less 45 min. Then suddenly no picture, but sound or nothing...


try removing and re-installing the lamp cover on the back.
its a known issue with whaferdale tv's during manufacture, the lamp cover is not seated properly causing the safety switch to not engage all the way, when the lamp cover heats up and expands, it fall away further from the switch tripping it, shutting the set down.
when you remove and re-install the lamp cover, after you take the single ***** out, tilt the cover out and forward from the top about 3/4 of the way out and then tilt it back into normal position and put the ***** back.

Can you tell me how to tune in a channel when ppreparing to use a freeview box on a onyx sw 1536 ld


Unless you've got an "expensive" Freeview box that modulates its output on to the RF (Aerial) connector then you can't. Most Freeview boxes have 2 aerial connectors - 1 IN from the Aerial itself and 1 OUT to connect to the TV - BUT this is ONLY a PASS-THROUGH connection. This means that the digital Freeview signal which is decoded from the aerial signals is NOT output on the OUT connector and sent down the co-axial cable to your TV. Only the "old" ANALOGUE (not Freeview NON DIGITAL) comes down that co-ax. What you should do is connect the Freeview box to your TV with a SCART cable via the SCART connectors on both. You need to select the AV input on the TV using the remote.
Even if you do have an "expensive" box that does modulate the digital decoded programmes and output these of the RF OUT connector, you should still use a SCART cable as the picture produced will be far better
Hope this helps

My Daewoo sv900 is scanning but not finding any channels


I owned a Daewoo VCR/Digital Receiver SV900 which was wiped out by the last change.
I started complaining to Daewoo who at first were not keen to get involved - I kept on at them and I negotiated with Daewoo for a replacement -

I ended up with a DSD9503TFB which is a twin Freeview tuner with PIP and a 160 GB Hard disk - I paid a cash balance of £ 15 as at first they wanted to give me a cheaper unit.

So it shows that if you complain loud enough ‘you do get results’

The DSD9503TFB arrived the other day and they picked up the SV900.

The picture quality is more Colourful than my other units so I had to tone it down a bit. { I can view seven other Freeview unit so its easy to do a comparison }

So far the Hard disk is silent and the Recording quality is excellent.

It was such good PVR I bought another one which will arrive on Monday.

All in all a ‘ Good result ‘ and ' I am not the only one '

So if you have a genuine Claim against Daewoo I would advise that you keep at them - they take ages to reply to e-mails but stick with it.

contact colin.millard@desuk.co.uk and quote ' Split NIT '

I have listed the Pro's and Con's of the DSD9503TFB at

Do not understand how to set up my alba digi box to my television and recieve basic digital channels help!


Hi.

Ok
1) plug aerial in to the antena in sock on freeview box.
2) plug short aerial type lead in to rf out socket on freeview & antena in socket on TV.
3) plug A scart lead in to the socket marked TV on freeview box & the other end of scart in to one of the scart sockets on the TV.
If your TV has more than one socket plug it into the one marked AV1 or AV2.

4) plug in freeview to mains electricity & switch box on.
5) Turn TV on freeview should appear automatically if it doesnt look on your TV remote for A button marked AV or a button with either A circle or square with an arrow going through it you may need to press this several times until you see digi picture come up.
Thats basically it but do check that you dont need a new aerial etc to be able to get digi signal in your area.

Usually caused be a secondary device. If you guys have a cable box try this test. Unplug the coax cable from the back of the cable box. plug the coax cable from the wall directly to the TV and do a chennel scan. See if the probelm is still there. If it is TV needs service. If it is gone...it is your cable box. Call the cable company. If you have Satelite all you can do to test it is try another device and see if you have the same problem. A dvd player, VCR, game console etc. and see if the problem happends with that as well. If it does then the TV needs service.
