Thomson DT16300 Freezing problems
Can anyone help me solve a problem with my Thomson DT16300? The orange light stays on. The fan comes on and off at the back. There is no picture and I can not programme it. I have tried rebooting but can't get it working apart from the orange light coming on and the fan starting up.

Frozen hard drive
If you have a Thomson DT16300, here's a handy fix that address freeze ups, lack of reception and problems on your Hard Disk:
goto MENU screen
goto SETUP screen
goto HELP screen
At HELP screen, Enter 1397 - this accesses the engineer panel - you can
reformat the HDD in this menu - you will lose all recorded programmes
and planned recordings but it clears locked or corrupted files
OR - at the HELP screen, press the GREEN button
On the lower half of the screen youwill see 3 options:
Blue - Reformat HDD - clears all the memory/HDD - useful if you have a
corrupted file - you will lose all recorded programmes though
Red - reset the whole box to factory settings - good if you have a
locked box or reception problems or cannto scan for new channels. It
goes back to when you bought the box, so you will have to input
favourites and planned recordings again
Yellow - Software revert - allows you to go back to the previous
software driver - you may lose new functions, but you can always
restore it back again using the same feature

As you know, this machine should support div-x as standard, in fact it should play just about anything except new HD disc formats.
So you put in a data disc with dix-x files, what happens?

If the "check speaker" is always turning on, it is possible the amp itself is shorted at the IC. Replace AMP IC pack or if it has N and P channel output transistors acheck them. Some amps do use a thermister and this could be burned open in circuit.
