  1. Cheap device to turn TV into Picture Frame

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    I'm thinking of using a "media server" box to turn a TV into a giant picture frame. My main limitations are that is has to have HDMI output (cause the TV is wall hung and that's the only cables already run ... and I would rather not run new ones) and obviously I don't want to spend a fortune...
  2. 27" Philips TV "sometimes" turn on...

    Philips / Magnavox
    I have an old (7 years) CRT TV and sometimes it will not turn on. When I push the power button, it lights up red, but i'd say only 30% of the time does the TV actually "turn on". Other times, I never hear the "click" inside and there is no static on the screen, indicating it did not turn on...

    Mitsubishi
    Hello everyone, I have a Mitsu WT-43211 that fails to turn on. Has the typical fault that I have read on the posts. When the power is selected on, the green led flashes and a click is heard and it fails to turn on. Holding the menu and input shows the 2 pause 2 fault code. I have removed the...
  4. Should I turn off my sub when not using it?

    SVSound
    SVS PC12-NSD, with 325 watt amp. For the benefit of the sub, should I turn it off when not in use? Would I save any money? We use the HT once a day usually, but there have been times when it's been two days. Thoughts?

  6. 51" Magnovox Will Not Turn ON

    Philips / Magnavox
    Hello, I could really use some help on either fixing my Magnovox model: 51MP392H/17 or recycling it. I am very capable of soldering and can follow instructions. The problem is I do not know where to begin, the set will attempt to power on and then turn off. There is no power to the screen...

    Hello, I recently picked up this tv from craigslist for dirt cheap as it was not working and the original owners just wanted to get rid of it, and being the poor college student thats interested in electronics I decided to pick it up and take a crack at repairing it. I have been browsing...

  9. Mitsubishi WT-42311 will not turn on...

    Mitsubishi
    I have a Mitsubishi HD Series 1080 model WT-42311. I have had the TV for at least 5 years. It has been working fine up until the other day when we tried to turn it on. The green led will come on when you hit the power button, but after roughly 2-3 seconds it turns off. No picture or sound...
  10. Pioneer VSX-D850S won't turn on, "Power Off" message

    Pioneer
    Getting ready to move and need to decide if this one is worth salvaging. For the longest time, I would turn on the AVR and one of the front channels wouldn't work, i.e. everything would sound great, but one speaker would be dead. Restarting the AVR would sometimes cure the problem, sometimes...
  11. Samsung HL-4266W will not turn on

    Samsung
    My Samsung HL-4266W is about 2 1/2 years old and has started to give me some trouble. Almost daily now it has trouble turning on. The bulb will light up and I will hear a very faint whirring noise (fan or color wheel?) but no audio or video. The screen is essentially dark (not black as in...
  12. Turning HT Layout 90 Degrees?

    Home Theater Design and Construction
    I am designing a new HT for the basement, and I am limited to an area that is about 10 x 15. From some prelim research, it seems that the recommended distance I need from the screen to the sitting area is less than the width of 3 or 4 reclining chairs plus aisle space (To me, it looks like...
  13. Finally time....please help me turn my sealed test box intoa new ported enclosure :)

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    About four months ago I built a test box(23.5" cubed-sealed) for my new Tempest-X and EP2500. Then I broke my wrist and was casted. Just after getting my cast off I was jumped and robbed and broke two ribs. I am finally in good enough shape to build my ported enclosure. Want to use .75" MDF...
  14. What other options do we have to automatically turn on an external amp???

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I added an external amp to my system ...my AVR has the 12V trigger, but my amp doesn't, so I need to manually turn it on to use front speakers. This is a real story (it happened last Sunday :innocent:) I watched "The fifth element", and it was the first time that I recall a DVD going straight...

  16. HL-R5067W hard to turn on

    Samsung
    When I turn on my TV it tries to come on, then shuts off and tries to come on again. It does this three times and then the Timer Lamp/Stand By Temp lights flash. Eventually I can get it to come on. When I first try to turn it on I listened for the color wheel and I here a ticking sound like...

    Mitsubishi
    I have a Mitsu WS-55511 that wont turn on. It goes thru the 45 second green flashing when plugged in, then when I try to power on it does the 3 second green led and shuts off. I have replaced the infamous DM Board capacitors and the Convergence IC. Also I have tried the disconnection of the...
  18. Using my PSP as a remote to turn my PS3 into a Media server?

    Computers | HTPC | Media Servers
    Hi, I have this question running in the back of my mind, and I am just curious if it is possible for this to work... Or if it would make any sense. I know the PSP will connect to the PS3 to watch a movie, but can it control the PS3 somehow. I did buy the bluetooth remote for my movies, but...

    Movies | TV Shows | Hollywood
    Think Outside the Box or It Doesn't Matter Who Wins the Format War I think the real point is, "Who cares who wins!" Until you can go to the neighborhood rental place or on-line renter and readily get any of the formats, it doesn't matter :rant: Mr and Mrs. Joe Sixpack are looking for...
