Question about Hitachi 42HDS69 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Suggestion doesn't seem to apply to my tv

That doesn't work. I pressed the Menu button (it's called Menu, not M) and then pressed that number sequence, but it doesn't do anything: The menu just remains onscreen. If you have a specific suggestion rather than just pasting text from the manual, I'd love to hear it.

Service menu settings and resetting if still nothings happen. Then DVD works fine and then the signal strength is 95%. Then the problem is your cable card provider. They blocked your channel this is the common problem of card deactivation. Just try this, take the cable connection and put an ordinary outdoor antenna, if still not working then the problem is in the signal board , but if it's works ok then the problem is cable card activation...

Checking the Diagnostics screen 1. Make sure the RF cable is plugged securely into the CABLE connector (not the ANTENNA connector) on the back of the DVR.
2. Tune to a channel that is having a problem and press RECORD to lock the tuner to the CableCARD.
3. Press the TIVO button and select Messages & Settings > Account & System Information > Diagnostics. Look for the number of the problem channel, and then look below it for the Signal Lock setting.

• Signal Lock: Yes means the DVR is detecting a signal for the channel. In this case, the DVR usually cannot display the channel because either the CableCARD has not been activated or during activation the card did not receive the provisioning necessary to display the channel. For more information, go to
Step 4: Determining if the CableCARD is activated.

• Signal Lock: No means the DVR is not detecting a signal on the channel. If this is happening for only one or a few channels, this channel may not be in your lineup. For more information, go to
How Do I Determine Which Cable Lineup Is Mine?

If you see Signal Lock: No, and Test Channels could not display any video on the CableCARD, use the following procedure to check the signal connections.

Checking signal connections 1. Partially eject the CableCARD(s) so that they are disconnected from the slot.
WARNING: If you remove the CableCARD(s) completely, you must take care to replace them in the same slot. Switching slots will unpair the cards; to re-establish pairing, you will need to contact your cable provider.
2. Press the LIVE TV button on the TiVo remote control. Do you see video?

• If you see video, the CableCARD activation was not successful. For more information, go to
Step 4: Determining if the CableCARD is activated.

• If you do NOT see video, go to Step 3.

3. Plug the RF cable connection directly into your TV. Do you see video? • If you see video, go to Step 4.
• If you do NOT see video when the cable feed is connected only to your TV, contact your cable provider.
4. Reconnect the cable to the DVR and try the following, in order. Press the LIVE TV button and check for video after each step.

a. Check the cable connection on the back of the DVR. Make sure the RF cable is securely attached to the CABLE connector.

b. Press the INPUT button on your TV remote control to cycle through the settings. The Input setting must match the physical connection between the DVR and your TV (HDMI or Composite, for example).

c. Press the FORMAT button on the front of the DVR to cycle through the settings. This ensures that the DVR is sending a compatible signal to your TV.

d. If you have any splitters installed, remove them and then reattach the RF cable to the DVR.

5. Restart the DVR. After the DVR restarts press the LIVE TV button. If you still cannot see video, contact the TiVo CableCARD hotline.

    To disable the Demo mode, perform the following:


    1. Turn on the TV.
    2. Simultaneously hold down the Vol+ and Vol- buttons on the front of the TV. Do not use the remote control.
    3. Hold for about 6 seconds
    4. Certain model TVs may turn off, others will not. But in either case, the Demo mode should be disabled.

Dish Network controller doesn't work if you happen to pause or stop when the screen is black or on a dark picture. You have to turn TV and control box off then back on to regain controller.

The remote works fine other than this stated problem? What type receiver and TV do you have? Do this just began occurring? Have you checked the batteries to make sure they are fresh? Is this on TV 1 or TV 2? One thing you may try is readdressing the remote to the receiver.

Remote: All Other Remotes
  1. Go to System Info screen (press Menu button 2 times on remote).
  2. Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
  3. Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
  4. Press the pound (#) button.
  5. Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record. Note: If successful, the number selected in step 3 will appear in the System Info screen under Remote Address.

Installed new lamp/how to reset the lamp hour meter on samsung (HL-S4666W)


Here is the procedure for resetting the lamp timer.

This is a quick reference guide to show you how to reset your Samsung DLP TV’s lamp hour meter or hour counter. Resetting the counter is a very simple procedure.
Begin with the TV powered off.
Point your remote towards your TV.
Press:
Mute + 1 + 8 + 2 + Power.

Your TV set should now say “Loading Factory”.

Browse down to “Option” then press Enter (or the right cursor button).

NOTE: The Mute+1+8+2 buttons needs to be pressed down consecutively and fairly quickly. If your TV does not enter the service menu after using this combination, you can substitute MENU instead of MUTE. This seems to work for some sets. Also, the right cursor arrow also acts as the ENTER button, so try it if you’re having difficulty with the ENTER button.
To exit the service menu, hit press the EXIT button or just turn off your TV (remember not to turn on your TV immediately afterwards!).

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If I have helped you, please help me, and rate this suggestion the highest FixYa rating. (Two Thumbs Up) If you cant rate this post with the highest rating, then please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

How to set up remote to turn tv on and off


this is a generic answer that applies to many multi unit remotes

Many remotes have to be trained. the user manual contains a list of code series that identify to the remote what equipment the remote is intended to control. changing batteries may erase the prom that this information is recorded in.
From either the printed manual or by looking up the manufacturers web site from descriptive labels on or in the remote, you can determine the (usually) 3 digit code for your tv dvd video audio units and the button that begins programming mode sop that you can press the unit button, enter the code, press the button to confirm. and be done

My specific remote requires

Hold [menu] untill the red lamp flashes 3 times
press [dvd]
enter the code on the number pad
press [dvd]
press [tv]
enter the code on the number pad
press [tv]
press [vcr]
enter the code on the number pad
press [vcr]
press [audio]
enter the code on the number pad
press [audio]
press [aux]
enter the code on the number pad
press [aux]
press [menu]

thankfully the remote recharges on the dvd player, and I only did that once
