Won't work as a TV--only plays dvds

I have tried hooking it up directly to the cable and plugging it into the wall but it just shows a blue screen with the msg. "No signal found". Is there some cable I need to buy?

    I think I tried that--where it tries to find TV stations? It didn't find any. --Jen

Your solution will come from your settings menue, you have to be in the correct tv setting.
If you are running dish your input will have to be the correct input device, under the device settings.
If you go into your system settings and do a little searching you should be able to switch between devices and get your cable to come up.

    Is this new tv or you are using it already?

    Please check cable signal and confirm it by attaching with another tv. If yes, Go to subject Tv menu and perform Auto-Search, still no station problem means Tv has bad Tuner and will be replaced.

Hooking your PS2 Up To your Stereo
Just got a PS2 and trying to hook it up to your TV, stereo or both? Here are instructions to help you get everything working smoothly.

First, some basic cable definitions. These are pretty much standard for ANY system or stereo you ever get, so it's good to learn them.

RED CABLE - right channel for stereo sound (get it - Red Right?)
WHITE CABLE - left channel for stereo sound
YELLOW CABLE - video signal

Your PS2 plays games and plays DVDs. So it is generating signals that go OUT of that box. You want those signals to go IN to your TV. The most simple way to do this is to simply plug them into your TV, if you have no stereo system hooked up and nothing else attached to your TV. Most TVs have stereo left in, stereo right in, and video in. Most in fact have them all color coded with the above colors. So all you do is plug the cables in and turn the TV on. Some TVs have to be set to channel 2 or 3 to know to take the signal in from the Video In line, but your manual would tell you if that was the case. Here is a diagram of the straight connection.

I would really recommend hooking a stereo system into your TV, though. The PS2 has INCREDIBLY stereo sound and you really miss out on a lot if you just have the sound coming out of your TV speakers!! Especially if you play DVDs through your PS2, you want that sound coming out of the stereo system. So in this case you would send the video to your TV, so your TV can show the picture. You then send your audio (sound) to the stereo, so it can play the sound. Most stereo systems have multiple input spots so you can plug in your CD player, your tape player, your record player, etc. So just choose an input spot that isn't taken yet. Here's an image of that connection -

So let's say you don't have a tape player and therefore plug the red cable into "Tape Input R" and plug the white cable into "Tape Input L". To make the sound play, you would now press the "Tape" selection button on your stereo so it played the music coming through the tape channel. Since that's where your PS2 is plugged in, that is the sound that will come out of your speakers.

Today, while watching tv on the Dish, tv suddenly started powercycling. I unplugged it, waited, and then tried a DVD -- worked fine. Tried Dish again, power cycled again -- on off on off, 1/2 second of...


If you are using a powerstrip may not be supplying enough power to run the LG HDTV and your HD receiver. If you are using a powerstrip make sure the receiver is plugged directly into the wall. Otherwise this may be a grounding issue please reply if this doesn't work and we can look into some other possibilities.

My olevia 42in tv now has a blue screen and a logo that says no signal. I have connected the cable to another tv and it works fine. What is my problem?


Check to make sure your tv is in the correct input/source. Are you trying to hook it up directly to a cable box or out of the wall and what connections are you using? If you are using the cable cord only then make sure your tv is on air/channel 3. If you are using a red,white,yellow connection then make sure your tv is on av1/av2 depending on which slot you have plugged it in on the back of your tv.

We just bought a new 32" panasonic led tv. Hooked everything up and works fine with normal television broadcast. However, we have a Sony DVD/VHS combo hooked up that doesn't perform well. When we play...


If you are using the composite cables (RWY) make sure the red and white are plugged into the audio jacks and NOT the component cable plugs (RGB.) If you have the red audio cable plugged into the red component plug this will cause issues, especially with the sound.

Use Visio just for dvds?


(duh)

I will post this answer just in case anyone else out there has this problem.

Press the button on the remote that says AV. The blue screen saying "no signal" disappears and you can watch videos without a server or antenna connection.
