It cannot be done by ur self but if u have a electronics knowledge u can open the back cover after unplugging the cable cord and check for the power sock connection near the main switch of ur tv (please dont touch any other components of ur tv as it contins 28 kv of heavy power)



thats it

The DTV input in my GV46L stays black. Why?


You don't say what you are trying to input but take note that your model does not have a digital tuner on the DTV input. If you use a digital OTA antenna, the signal must first go through a digital converter or tuner before it goes into the DTV input. The DTV/ANT input is only cable ready. There is no digital tuner in the TV to activate the DTV menu.

Vizio vm60p hdtv scanning problem


I had the same problem. Change your input to dtv even if you are using coaxial input. Then go to the menu screen and select tuner settings. Dtv setting should appear.

Vizio VP50 HDTV: I connected an HD antenna for first time on the TV and when I switch to DTV the screen goes blank, remote inoperable. Only controls on side of TV work, but there is no way to do a scan...


I have the exact same problem. It may be the tuner board is bad. I did some research and it seems like this tv is junk. I saw a link that said call Vizio and they are aware of all it's problems and are willing to give a new tv free of charge. I called and they knew nothing about it, but did offer to fix it out of warranty for $285 all problems fixed out the door. Also, TV locks up on RGB input and can't switch inputs until I hooked a computer to the RGB input, then I was able to select a different input.
Please post if you found a solution to the DTV issue..

Ok,I am assuming you are using a converter box on this old tv,so first try to manually put the tv on ch 3 if you are hooking it to the VHF terminals of the tv......if you are using a video input(red/wht/yel/wires) then that must be selected using the input button on the tv or the original Sharp remote

Not an expert on this model but generally if you switch the TV on by pressing the remote's power button it will come back using the input you previously used. If you press a channel button it will come back to DTV.

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

Pc ready


There is a PC/DTV RGB input area with two audio jack inputs.  The input is a standard 15 pin PC jack. Hook it up to your PC video card input.  You can get the audio cable from Best Buy or a electronics store...split RCA on one end and the headphone jacks on the other to your PC. Then select the TV/Video source button on your remote until you see PC/DTV YPbPr screen appear.  It will search for the signal, find your PC and display the screen. You may have to go to MENUE on your remote to adjust the HDTV (1080i) frequency.... an option that only appears if there is something hooked up to the PC/DTV RGB signal input.

Hitachi 19WDVB


Had the same problem. Digging through the manual I came across a paragraph (at the top of page 24 - DTV Features) saying "if you have selected DTV then it will only display the DTV menu. (I didn't actually select DTV - we can't even get DTV in our area, but the ASP programduring startup appears to have set it!
You have to press the Volume +/- buttons on the remote, then the Input button and it will bring up the input menu. There you can select a different input. Once I did this, I found it had both my TV channels tuned and my satellite channel!
Now my problem is I can't control on/off or volume with the Sky controller - which is why I'm trawling the forums!!
