20 Most Recent Sylvania ZV450SL8 Questions & Answers


Hello, this is Dan Busa with DISH Network Customer service, What I would check is the cable coming from the receiver to the tv make sure you only have one set. If you only have one set coming from the box, check if it goes into the DVD player. If it does, hook the receiver up separately and it should work okay.

The red "stand by" light shows power is getting to the TV. If it is off, you may have no house power being connected. If you can get the red light to come on but your TV still does not turn on the power supply may have failed

Did you finalize the DVD before you removed it from the VCR/DVD recorder? Until a disc is finalized, it won't work on another device. If you left some space, try to finalize it now. Does the disc play when in that Sylvania unit? It is possible that the unit is faulty and didn't focus the laser properly for writing to the DVD. (If you actually tried to burn to a CD and not a DVD-R, then no data was written to the disc. There are slight differences to the laser settings for CDs and DVDs.)

I hope this helps.

It's the fuse in the electric engine. You can bypass this fuse by cutting it off and then you just connect the two ends together, wrap with electrical tape. It'll work, that's what I did to mine. Works great again

Your TV cannot resolve the Mac picture size. Unplug your Mac from the external display, set the correct resolution for the Mac and purchase an adapter to reduce the resolution from your Mac to run the TV.

Better late than never. The problem is that your TV is in the service mode. There are many ways this can happen. But, lets just get down to fixin this! With the original remote and the TV on. If the TV will not shut off, do this. Press the left cursor button on the remote, followed with pressing the right cursor. Power off the TV with remote, or press off button on TV.

Secondly, your TV will power on and off. But you have flashing colors. Do this. With the original remote and TV on. Press the up cursor button, on the remote, followed with pressing the down cursor. Power off TV with remote, or press off power of TV. Thanks for asking me, Matt of Martins TV Repair.

Curtis International which made the Sylvania clock radio no longer has any support for its legacy electronics. ManualsLib has manuals for several Sylvania clock radio models here: https://www.manualslib.com/brand/sylvania/clock-radio.html . They have a link for the SCR1388B, https://www.manualslib.com/manual/944856/Sylvania.html . This document doesn't list the SCR1388B on the cover page. However, the two clock radios are probably similar enough that the manual will help you use your clock radio. If this manual doesn't provide enough details, please check some of the other manuals listed at the first link above.

I hope this helps. ManualsLib does provide an option to get the manual as a PDF. See the Download button near the top of the page. You will need to go through some CAPTCHA checks to download the file as a PDF.

Hi Elsie-
If you do not have the remote, you can change inputs by doing the following:
Changing inputs Inputs are selected by using a number of methods, depending on the model of your Sylvania TV. Switching inputs is usually accomplished by pressing the "Input Select" button on the remote. Each press will simply cycle through each available input on your TV. If no remote is available, the front panel has a button that matches the function on the remote. This button is located on the bottom-right side of the TV and doubles as the "Enter" button when accessing onscreen menus.

Hope this helps.
