Hi all,

I have a Homecast HT9200DTR and it has started playing up! I can switch it off on the remote but not on. The blue lights around the manual on / off button and the volume / menu dial stays on when it is switched off. When I manually switch it on, it goes through quite a long sequence before I can get a picture. Sometimes it re-tunes itself, sometimes sub titles appear even though I have them set off, sometimes I get a black and white screen!!

Any help to get back to 'normal' would be great!

Have you tried a cold start? i.e. Disconnect from power source, wait about 30 secs and reconnect.

I have a media player does this sort of thing occasionally. A cold start always restores normal operation.

Yes - I have left the power off for a few minutes and switched on again, - no difference. Left it off over night - no difference. 

I would try to re-set to factory default but it asks for a password. I have never put a password in and I read that the standard one is 0000, I have tried this but it says it is invalid. Not sure what to do with it now!! Does anyone know why the blue lights stay on when my machine is off?

The latest thing it does now is wait 200 minutes before switching off after recording. It has set itself to the maximum time! If I could get it  re-set to factory default setting - I should be right, but I cannot get past this password rubbish. 

You could try updating the firmware and hope it deletes the password.


Try asking on the Support Forum if you can override the default password.
