SOURCE: no signal on my goodmans xpro freeview on the flat screen it says

hi there the first thing i would make sure you have a wide band ariel capable of receiving free view if the ariel is old and was there before you moved in and you have been there a while theres a good chance that the ariel isn't a wide-band ariel,

also check here with your post code to make sure free view is transmitted in your area

http://www.freeview.co.uk/availability

if you know you can get it and you have a wide band ariel make sure all connections are secure and that you don't have many leads connected together because you will lose a vast amount of quality though many leads to a point where you wont get a picture also make sure its the only tv on the connection as having a few will also do the same thing. ariel boosters can make a massive improvement on the line these can be bought any where even you local asda/walmart, make sure you have one secure connection right to the ariel socket to your tv. this eliminates any other problems

make sure you have your tv tuned in right if you have just moved house you will need to rescan for Chanel's as they can be on different frequencies from where you last lived

I hope this helps you if you Need a maual for your set please leave make and model number from the back of the set and ill try and get u a online manual for this set

Good Luck Hope You Sort It

SOURCE: I Bought a Goodmans 250Gb Digital Freeview box in

As it's only May, I would take it straight back to the shop and demand a new one/alternative.

If it is bust, and it's in warranty, I certainly wouldn't try and fix it as you may invalidate the warranty by opening the case to check wires etc.

SOURCE: Bought second hand goodmans DGB3 freeview box, but

You must mean the GDB3, Goodmans never made anything called a DGB3.

There's nothing you can do Tony, you've bought a dud.

The GDB3 sold new for under £15 in many outlets and I bought two of them for £10 each; at that price it's not designed to be repaired and failures when under warranty are just binned and replaced by the retailer/manufacturer. Even a replacement remote control costs more than the box originally cost.

You've been unlucky and bought unwisely on this occasion, but don't let it put you off Goodmans in general as they're generally more reliable than many others at the same price level. Don't buy another used Freeview box though as there are many which are out of date and incompatible with the latest Freeview technical standards. You can still buy new boxes for under £20 if you shop around.

Can't tune Alba 7395 VCR into a Goodmans GDB12XIT Freeview box


Has the box got a scart socket? If it has connect the VCR to that via a scart lead. If the alba has two scart sockets then use the second one. When recording set the channel as AV1 or AV2.
If you don't have enough scart sockets to connect your TV, VCR and Box, then get one of these Scart Switching Box from places such as Amazon or Argos.

I cant make the freeview box work without the operating instructions


OK - please follow these instructions carefully to setup the Freeview box. If you get stuck at any point in the instructions - or anything I've said doesn't make sense or match what you can see - just post another message here and I'll deal with each problem as it arises.

1. Switch the TV and Freeview box to STANDBY. There should be a red light on the Freeview box;
2. Connect the aerial cable to the freeview box. Make sure you are connecting this to the correct socket. This should be labelled "RF IN", "IN" or "Aerial/Antenna". If you have connected to a socket marked "RF/TV OUT" or "TO TV" or something similar, it wont work;
3. Connect the SCART cable to Freeview box and the back of the TV;
4. Switch the TV on;
5. Switch the Freeview box on - you should get a green light on the front of the box;

Most TVs will automatically switch to the external input when a SCART device is switched on while the TV is already on. This is why you should switch the TV on first.

At this point you should be able to see the installation / setup screen for the Freeview box displayed on your TV. If you cannot see this:

A. Press the INPUT button once on your SAMSUNG remote control once. This is the button in the top-right corner of your remote control.
B. If you still cannot see the installation / setup screen, press the MENU or SETUP button on the remote control supplied with the Freeview box.

The instructions from this point forward will be different if you had to press the MENU / SETUP button on the Freeview remote before anything appeared on the TV screen. If this Freeview box has been used before the installation screen will not appear, but you will get at on-screen menu after pressing the MENU / SETUP button. If this happens, please let me know and I will provide alternative instructions for setup.

Assuming you have been able to access the installation screen, it should be easy enough to follow the instructions on screen from this point. Use the UP / DOWN / LEFT / RIGHT arrow keys on the Freeview remote to highlight the relevant options and then press OK / SELECT to choose that option.

I don't want to make this too complicated by providing alternative instructions for every possible scenario. Please run through the instructions above and make sure you are getting an installation screen or "menu/list" displayed on the TV. If you need further instructions from there, I will provide them in another message.

Good luck - I'll await your reply.

Regards,
BElectric

Remote control codes for freeview and dvd recorder


According to the booklet you have to enter the code 119 for a Goodmans TV, however it does not work with my Goodmans portable TV and even quick search / autoscan doesn't find the TV.
