Ghosting on the screen

I used to have a Replay TV box and there was no screen saver mode built into the software. The problem is that I fell asleep a few times with the box on and now there is a relay screen burnt into the screen, What do I have to do or replace to get rid of this message?

I'm sorry but the TV is damaged permanently. The only way to restore the screen is to replace the CRT tubes. Depending on the colours that burned the image, there's a rare chance it might not be all three of the tubes.
If you can put up with the burnt image it will fade with time but will never disappear completely.

Why does my reciever keep turning off by itself?

try looking into the Timer section on the TV. also on Dish if it is left unattended (like stay on same channel etc) it will go in to sleep mode, U then just hit the Select button.. U can go in the Dish menu and set the Sleep mode (inactivate mode ) to a longer time, I usually set my for 8 hours.

I was using a hdmi cord to connect my laptop to my tv, and now all of a sudden my tv is getting no signal

Check the screen saver time out setting on your laptop.
Set the time setting that fits you.
Example: 3 hours for a typical long movie interval or no screen save.
Also,check the key sequence for toggle VGA and HDMI
After hibernate mode (check power saver setting page on Windows),the system will default back to built-in laptop display.
To prevent this from happening,set system to performance mode and do not hibernate.

What is auto shut off on a 40

When the TV dose not see any signal feeding it, be it be cable, video, etc. it will go into standby mode, timer is for setting the TV to turn off at a pre setting time, I use this mode when I go to bed and set it to turn off after about an hour so the TV will not be on all night when I fell asleep.

DVR won't set a timer to record a show

I have never encountered this but if you have enabled the standby and it still does not work you will need a new receiver. The feature was to enable a screen saver so that televisions screens would not be etched if it were left on and you fell asleep. My suspicion is that the DVR hard drive is corrupt giving you this false message.
Thanks for using Fix Ya.
