TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
What is normal channels like through a satellite or cable box or antenna?whatever you are using?
By DVR you mean the DMR-EX75EB this is a DVD rec not DVR? or do you mean via a DVR inside a cable or satellite box?
So its via the recorder that you have a problem normal TV directly through a sat or cable box is OK?
Now just for further clarification you are referring to the subtitles from the box itself that are OK through the tuner in the recorder is tat what you mean?
I am trying to separate any box you may be using from the recorder you see so I understand its a recorder issue
Yes that is a much better explanation so you are watching via an aerial not a box Ok that makes much more sense
The problem is usually the 5volt decoupling capacitor that feeds the tuner it starts to go bad eventually you will lose the tuner in the recorder it will need to be replaced the drawback is the whole unit needs to be stripped down to get at this device....
Let me know your thoughts on this
I am referring to the tuner in the recorder

Yes what is actually happening is the tuner is not being supplied with its 5volt working voltage it may have dropped to about 3volts dc now that will be OK but as the capacitor begins to go bad more then the tuner will not work anymore, the only other thing I have had for that again is bad capacitors in the powersection but I would bet it is tha 5vdc decoupling capacitor to the tuner had this many times
Thanks for the rating
