  2. Using the original Philips TV remote press the following keys. Press each key for 1 sec then press the next.
  3. From the remote press 0 6 2 5 9 6 MENU
  4. Wait a few seconds. The red power light should begin to blink.
  5. The blinking sequence will determine the error code.
  6. You will have one long 5 second red blink followed by the error code.
Note: On some sets the TV will automaticaly blink the error code when its powered up without having to go into the SDM menu. If you power light blinks after the set is powered up jot down the sequence.
Example Error Codes from the power light.
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 3
Example #2
( RED 5 Seconds ) off ( RED 1 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) off ( RED 1/2 Sec ) = Error Code 12

Recieved error code 50299 when accessing Netflix

The Wii wants to do a system update, but isn't letting you connect because your Wii is not updated. Catch 22.... Anyway, go to the connection settings it prompts you to, choose your connection one, save, then test. Should work now, and will prompt you to do a system update.

When my radio is hooked up it drains the battery how should i wire my system to stop that and which wire is the remote wire

Ok, if it drains the battery, there is a short somewhere. Exactly where, that will be your job to find. The big question is if you used a wiring harness or hardwired your radio. If you hardwired it, you are experiencing the problems that come from it. If you have the stock harness, make sure it is in place (even if you have to reverse work already done). Purchase a wiring harness. This will make sure the correct wires are hooked and won't fry your electrical system. And the remote wire should be blue. Hope this helps.

I need to know the wire color code for 2004 Chevy express van. I want to hook up new radio, but not sure how to hook them up to new radio.

I recommend getting a wiring harness. If you "hardwire" this radio, you risk frying your electronics. Unless you want to spend about $2500 for new vehicle electronics. Good luck

Error 322 router not detected

For starters you could hardwire your laptop to any of the 4 ethernet ports on the router then check if you have internet connection that way, now to connect wirlelessly you need to check if there is any wireless security enabled on the router, since your already hardwired to the router you can access the configuration page of the router by typing on the address bar or Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari. When you are prompted for a username and password just type Admin for the username and leave the password blank. Now you will see the setup page of the router, select if you want to run the setup wizard or choose manual setup for configuration. On the left hand side you will see three option, Internet, Wireless Settings and Network.

Hooking up a multimedia disc player boss

Sorry, you must have a harness. No harness, no power. Unless you try to hardwire the unit, but that would mean you have to solder wires to the inside of the player and take out the jack for the harness. A very dangerous thing to do. It could cause a fire if not done perfectly. Without knowing what kind of player it is, model number and make, nobody can tell you how to hardwire it.
