I just got the TV for free with no remote and had the same problem.  The solution I found is to connect two devices that are feeding live signal (a VCR, DVD player, or game console) to the RCA connector input on the back of TV for Video 1 and Video 2.  I then used the first menu option which I accessed by using the Menu key on the front of the TV and Adjust and Select buttons to scan for channels and detect the band for the reciever to use.  After doing this I changed the setting away from "Fixed" (I forget which setting) and turned the TV on and off.  I then found that by pressing Menu several times I would get new menus.  Before I had done that scan with more devices attached to the other ports I didn't get any other menus.  I also discovered that depending on which devices I had connected I would get a Picture in Picture feature.  It would have its own menu to select its source, but I would lose that feature if I changed the device topography of my setup.

I read the posts above and then tried it and it didn't work. So I tried using a universal remote. I just found an extra DirecTV remote lying around and programmed it to the TV. I then just pressed menu, right, and my video was on the screen.

My xbox 360 isnt reading my video games and i also know that it isnt the hard drive because i switched it to my friends xbox and works perfectly it only says reading after10 seconds then open tray/ What...


You may have noticed that this has happened over time, and you play video games much more than you play dvds. Here are some steps you may trouble shoot with:
1.Try rebooting the system

2.Try updating the firmware by simply connecting to the internet.

3.Try oiling the gears inside the disc drive, without opening the cover, stick the oil inside and squirt. The gears might be sticky.

3.If the above solutions did not work unfortunately, your laser diode for reading Game Discs may have burned out. Try taking it to a store, which fixes video games consoles near you. Ask to either replace the laser diode, the whole disc reader all together, or to try pot calibrating the diode.

Keep video files with 5.1 surround sound for Xbox 360


Have you purchased a 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker system for the Xbox 360 to enjoy your games and movies in the center of action? Currently I have considered doing it. I have loads of HD videos, which are with the extensions of .mkv, .m2ts and whatever. Most of them have embedded 5.1 channels, but the thing is that because of format issues, my console is unable to directly play these files, so I have to do format conversion before watching them. In regard to conversion, my only requirement is keeping 5.1 channels of the source file, fortunately, with Pavtube Video Converter, I did it! Very excited! Share it here.

What you will need is only Pavtube Video Converter. You can free download it here. The detailed steps are as below:

1. Click "Add" button to load video files into this program

2. Click the pull down menu of "Format" to select output format for Xbox 360
Follow "Zune/Xbox 360 Device" – "Xbox 360 HD Video (*. Wmv)". By the way, if you wanna combine multiple files into a single file so that there are no intervals while playing, you can tick the checkbox "Merge into one file" to achieve it.

3. Click "Settings" button to do advanced settings and select 5.1 channels
All the items including codec, bit rate, frame rate, aspect ratio, sample rate and audio channels are changeable. Do remember adjust the audio as 5.1 channels. Following are my settings, which result a good playback quality on my Xbox 360 console.

4. Click "Convert" button to start conversion
Once finished, you can get the output files for your console via clicking "Open" button effortlessly.

More features of this Xbox 360 Converter I have found:
1. The converting speed of this software is 1-2 times faster than the similar converters. Batch conversion can be done in a few minutes.
2. It does not have the audio and video out of sync issues.
3. With exception of adding text as watermark, images, GIF animations, and videos can also be added as watermarks to realize the picture-in-picture effect.
4. You can use the "Trim" function to select certain video clips to convert. And you can also take advantage of the "Crop" function to remove black edges or change the screen size.
5. Special effect models are provided, such as "Simple gauss blur", "Simple laplacian sharpen", "Aged film", "Flip color", and "Invert".

Plays records too fast, needle cartridge is loose


Many of these old phonographs play a little too fast. one possible fix is to rig up a dimmer switch into an "extension" cord that you plug this vintage phonograph into. The lower voltage will slow it down and you will be able to adjust the speed.

Xbox 360 Pro : To Play This Disk Error


Unfortunately , a new xbox360 game cant be played in a normal xbox (not xbox 360)

The problem is that the new xbox is way different on the inside than the original xbox is. Because it is way more powerful, you can put an old xbox game into a 360, and it will work fine (most of the time), but if you try the reverse there is no way to make it work.

If you lost the remote for a zenith television and want play a movie on an input, use the channel up/down buttons to navigate. Ususally if your on ch 2, press the down button. Line 1/2 will appear on a blackscreen if the device is off. Otherwise, I have had great success using a GE universal remote with my Zenith tv/vcr combo unit. (by the way, I work for the technical support department for my city's local cable company)

Dvd will not play


Hi there. If i understand correctly, you do have the official microsoft DVD dongle and remote ? If so, you might wanna see if the remote is defective. Do you have a camcorder at home ? There is a trick to see if a remote sends it's infrared signals. Put the camcorder on, in a dark room, and put the IR transmitter on the top of the remote in front of the camera. You'll see the IR remote transmitter blinking if you press some buttons. Human eyes can't see it, but the camera does! Try it with another remote that you're sure that works, you'll see. If the microsoft xbox remote doesn't do anything, check batteries, else it's proably defect. If you like to tinker a bit with things, you might wanna open it up to check if there's any cold solder point on it (a broken connection), but you need soldering skills to do so. Else, you'll need a new remote. Hope that helps ! cheebster.
