Question about Humax Televison & Video

1 Answer

Why is my Humax 4000 very slow, freezing and scrambled saying bad signal.

Slow to respond to handset. When on for a while a lot of channels freeze, turn it off, turn on again and is better, then freezes in minutes again. Channel 3 and 5 say they are scrambled and bad signal (O.K. with TV alone so signal o.k.)and to retune which I keep doing other channels freezing. This is happening on two Humax boxes, one 2 years old the other 3. How to fix?

SOURCE: humax digital recorder picture freeze every 10 minutes

Humax are having problems and are starting to send out software upgrades (night-time updates) - seems to be related to the new formats on the MUXs for the digital switch-over. Our 9150T hasn't been fixed yet but due any day (I hope)

Remove the Aerial.
Switch on or if it's frozen switch off at the mains and on again.
Press Menu
Installation and enter password - 0000
Select 'Default Setting' and OK
Select 'YES' and OK to restore all settings to factory default.
Confirm again to start loading, enter the password again and it will start scanning for channels but won't find any.
Replace the aerial and press OK to rescan and now it will find channels. On completion press SAVE then EXIT on your keypad.
You won't lose any saved programmes but you will have to re-schedule your recordings.

Screen freezes BBC Channels only. Unfreeze by switching off TV. Handset and TVs buttons fail to work. Minutes laterscreen freezes again. No problem with non BBC channels


turning tv off and on wont make it better

you on roof antenna or a cable tv
if antenna only
you may be in weak signal area
or a new construction site or buildings deflecting the signal
antenna problem or needs upgrade

go back to TV set up and re-tune tv to bbc if possible

if it freezes then you know its an interrupted signal

My Facebook chat window freezes up when someone responds to me


Try Using Different Browsers other then IE explorer 8 or below, they have problems working with new chat windows and stuff that it don't really recognize. For instance try firefox,opera,google chrome,safari 4

One of these would have to work with facebook, if not make sure you have enough RAM space to even run anything other then browser sometimes a slow machine can just freeze from working it self to hard.

Freezing and three n two rings


you need to go over the mainboard with a heatgun in a circular motion 2-3 inches away from it. pay attention to around the cpu, gpu and memory chips and you will end up re-seating the solder and should fix this better for you. i dont know what you did to fix it in the first place but i can say that errors like the 3rrod really benefit from taking your time when doing the fix and making sure everything is covered.

TV freezes when switching to a digital channel


The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

Phone freezes up, restarts randomly, and is very slow.


Hello sg2134,
I too use the Sony Ericson Z750a. If the phone freezes up or it does not respond to the button presses, then switch off the mobile and switch it on again. If the problem persists, you can remove the battery and and the sim and put it back again. Then you will find the mobile to be normal again.

Video and Audio Freeze


Sounds like a slow internet connection. Try pausing the video until it has buffered at least halfway and then play again.
