Question about Toshiba RS-TX20 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

System constantly re-booting

My unit reboots automatically at different intervals. Sometimes you can watch 5 minutes of TV and sometimes 30 before the picture freezes, pixilates and then the system reboots. Everything works fine when the system is up. I tried resetting the system, unplugging it, and have checked to make sure that it is not over-heating. Any other ideas?

While this post is very late to answer this question, here is where I found a solution with the DVD still inside. When I used this solution, the whole system reset and worked.

http://www.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/archive/index.php/t-277275.html

"I had the exact same problem tonight. I put in a DVD and it locked my Toshiba RS-TX20 up. It simply wouldn't respond to anything but unplugging. Then it went into this infinite loop of trying to power up.

I finally got it to boot:

Hold the eject button on the unit continuously while it boots up (be patient!). It didn't open the tray until a couple minutes into the powering up process. After I took out the disc, it booted up normally at the next try.

I am guessing that there's a very small window during the booting process that the dvd drive isn't locked and you have to push the eject button in that small window to get the tray open. Since we don't know when the drive is unlocked, the best bet is to hold down the eject button continuously.

I hope this helps!"

A problem in the deflection board. Could be a Cap. Resoldering the deflection board may take care of the problem. You need to call a TV man to do this kind of work.

There is strong magnetic field around the TV. This may be due to the tower speakers or any portable radio kept close by.

Re orient the TV try switching OFF / ON at the intervals of 30 minutes. The built in auto de-gauser will correct the problem. In cable TV program if the picture is OK, nothing wrong in the TV.

Check with a different CD.

TV Turns Off Automatically While Watching

Stop trying to turn on the set. You are causing more damage. The hissing sound you are hearing is either a High Voltage Transformer on the SMPS (Switched Mode Power Supply) indicating a short somewhere in the set or some capicitors that have shorted out. Also there can be a CRT that is leaking cooling fluid onto the Main bd or the Power/Deflection bd or both bds. Have a trained Samsung tech troubleshoot the set.

ILO Recorder DVD05R - Playback jumps 10min, 20 min and more...

Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.

DLP tv trouble shooting

Hi.
Yes it could be a cooling problem, If your tv has any filters remove & clean them ensure fan can turn freely & that nothing can or is snagging it.
