Hi. My Daewoo DVR-06 turns itself off while playing back a movie randomly. At first I tought it had IR interference coming from fluorescent bulbs but aparently it isn't so.
I've searched all over the internet and I've found descriptions of similar problems but I couldn't find the fix.
Anything you can do for me?
Re: Daewoo DVR-06 turns itself off while playing back
I have the same machine. It was randomly turning itself off 3 or 4 times during a regular 2 hour movie. In the setup menu there is an option to reset all the settings to the default original factory settings. I did so, went through the entire setup process again and my machine has not turned itself off since. I liken it to "rebooting".

Take one fluorescent light-bulb -- not connected to anything -- and a darkened room. Start the microwave, and see if any emissions from it activate any of the fluorescent materials inside the light-bulb.
You are receiving IR interference from the fluorescent bulb in your tv heating up.
The best resolution would be to contact dish to confirm if your remote can be switched to UHF or if can get one that will.
You may also try repositioning your box slightly as long as it doesn't require un hooked the cables.
Just to provide clarification regarding the IR remote control- unfortunately its the opposite. A brightly lit room can negatively affect the infrared signal the remote uses to transmit the signal from the remote to the receiver- additionally interference may also be caused by fluorescent lighting. Another recommendation regarding IR signal interference is to; power everything off but leave the receiver & your TV on. Then proceed by powering one component on at a time, then testing the remote after each component has successfully been turned on. This process will also help you determine if a component may be causing the interference. Hope this helps! -Kirstie DISH Network
Yes, most likely the sensor is at fault - more precisely it's connections to the motherboard are iffy. You must take the back cover off the tv and reseat them. While you are there check their soldering points - with age they tend to melt and get loose.
Yes, try that. It is easy to do and doesn't cost anything. You've tried new batteries in the remote as well right? There are two types of remotes, IR (Infrared light LED is used) and RF (Radio Frequency). With an IR unit I do not see any way there can be interference as long as you don't have an IR lamp around the TV and TW DVR box. On the other hand, with RF, depending on where you live and other factors, there could well be RF interference. You'll have to locate the interference and remove it. In this day and age, things such as LED and CF light bulbs DO cause RF interference. If you use these kinds of lights in the room AND you know that the remote is an RF remote then try turning all the lights off in the room and try again.
I have the same issue. I've tried every version of Comcast box there is available. Nothing. Next I'm trying taping off the Sylvania IR and running the volume through an old receiver I have. That is, of course, that there isn't a solution posted here first. Will report back later.
Depending on the unit your going to need to check the back of the DVR for video out ports... My DVR has VID/HDMI/VCR/1394/SaTa and IR ports I use the VCR out to record with... because on my DVR I can say "Play this movie... now record to VCR and it will only play the movie on those VCR ports not on my TV so all I gotta do is hit record on my VCR... As long as you have audio/video jacks on the VCR. Then even some have it blocked so you can't do that... depends on model. So try recording on the VCR using the video ports instead of the COAX cable.
