How do you set the clock
What if I hooked up the composite cable (the red, white, and yellow cable) between my GPX system and my television, but I still cannot receive audio and video?
- While the GPX system is in the OFF mode, press the CLOCK/DISP on your remote.
- Press the CLOCK/DISP button again to choose between AM and PM settings.
- Use the numbered keypad to enter the current time.
- Once you have entered the correct time, press ENTER.
What should I do if my television does not have the inputs that my GPX player requires?
- Check to see if your television is set to the correct input channel. Some televisions may need to be turned to a specific, numbered channel, while others may require you to press an INPUT SELECT or a TV/AV or a TV/VIDEO button.
- If the problem persists, check to see if the cables are pressed firmly into their ports. Make sure the color and labeling of one output port matches the color and labeling of the corresponding input port. One side of the cable should be inserted into the output jack of the DVD player with the other side inserted into the input jack of the television.
If you have an older television, it is possible the only input the television will receive is a coaxial input meant to be connected to either an antenna or a cable television provider. In this case, you will need to purchase an RF modulator from an electronics dealer. This will allow you to convert your coaxial input into a composite input (the red, white, and yellow cable), which will provide a connection between your television and your GPX system.
In the AUDIO tab within the SETUP menu, what is the difference between PCM, RAW, and OFF?
This is a standardized manner in which audio is transferred from your DVD player to a separate audio system.
Why is my DVD skipping?
- The PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) option would be appropriate for a 2-channel Dolby Digital amplifier. This would be a Dolby Digital receiver that has only two speakers connected to it. This would also be the best option when connecting your player to a standard, two-speaker television.
- The RAW option would provide a raw signal to be processed by a Dolby Digital 5.1, MPEG, or DTS capable amplifier.
- The OFF setting is for when you need to use the stereo speakers on your television, rather than connect the DVD player to any external speaker system.
Check to see that there are no scratches on your DVD that would cause poor performance. Also, over time any DVD player may need to be cleaned. Due to the sensitivity of such a project, consult your local electronics provider for an appropriate system to clean your DVD player.
Why can I not see the complete screen when I am watching a DVD?
Check to see that you have the correct aspect ratio setting. You can change this setting in the SETUP menu, which is located in the center of your remote to the left of the SCROLL-UP button. In this menu, scroll down to the Video tab. Under the options for Aspect Ratio, you have three choices of television shaping.
- One option is the 4:3LB which stands for Letter Box, and it is best for a standard square tube television. It allows you to see the complete frame of a widescreen movie on a non-widescreen television.
- The next option is the 4:3PS, which stands for Pan Scan. This will make the image fit a square tube television, but there may be portions of the picture on the left and right side not included in the image of this option.
- The last option is 16:9. This option should only be used if you have a widescreen television to connect to your GPX system.
Also, check to see if your ZOOM setting is set to OFF. This can be done by pressing ZOOM/AUTO SCAN on your remote control until your picture returns to its normal operation.
Why are there subtitles displayed on my screen?
Check to see whether or not the SUBTITLE language in the LANGUAGE tab of the SETUP menu is switched to OFF. During playback, you can also press the SUBTITLE button until the subtitles are switched to the OFF setting.
Why is my DVD playing dialogue in another language?
Check to see whether or not the AUDIO language in the LANGUAGE tab of the SETUP menu is switched to OFF. During playback, you can also press the AUDIO button until you have reached the language or commentary track with which you would like to see the movie.
If I have burned a CD or DVD with various types of files (WMAs, MP3s, JPEGs, etc.), how do I view these files?
When you enter in a data CD or DVD, a display on your television automatically provides a browser to look through which JPEG files you would like to view.
- Select a file from the disc and press the PLAY/PAUSE button. This will start a slide show of pictures in numerical/alphabetical order.
- Use the NEXT and PREVIOUS track buttons to skip a photo or to go back to a photo.
Note that the system will only play the first 500 JPEGs added to your recordable CD. Also, the ability to play files off of a recordable CD in .mp3 or .wma format is not included as a feature in this product.
How do I receive better reception from my AM/FM tuner?
The white wire included with your GPX system is your FM antenna. Make sure your FM antenna is firmly in place. While in the Tuner mode, adjust the position of your antenna to provide optimal reception. This may take some trial and error by moving it back and forth to see which position gives you a clearer sound to your radio.
How do I add a radio station to the list of preset stations?
You must have the GPX system connected to a television in order to save radio stations to memory.
- Choose the memory channel to which you wish to store a particular radio station by pressing the PREV/M- and NEXT/M+ buttons.
- When you have chosen a memory channel, use the REV/TUN- and FWD/TUN+ buttons to scroll to the station you wish to store to that particular memory channel.
- Press the PROG/MEM button to save the radio station to the memory channel selected.
