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.

LG blue ray won't play sound from RCA sound bar. HDMI cable is hooked into HDMi slot on TV

the details you provided were very vague, however from my experience when a device is connected to another device via and audio capable hdmi cable, that device renders it audio output to the device its connected to and normally turn off all other audio outputs beside optical- I would assume there is an option in the blue ray player to turn off hdmi audio, which will in turn activate other audio outputs- you may also look for audio out port on your tv, it is ideal to connect the sound bar directly to the tv set audio out ports. To sum this up,
if you plan to use your player via hdmi cable you need to turn off hdmi audio output on the blue ray player and the plug an audio cable from your blue-ray player to your sound bar
you may also as i said connect your sound bar directly to your tv, the issue is most tv sets now a days do not have an audio out port, if you do then everything you play thru your tv will have audio via sound bar
there are several way to go here but unless your sound bar has hdmi av switching capabilities (im sure not) this is one of the most simple--Good Luck.

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.

Prior to the recent installation of Direct TV I was with DISH. I switched to Direct when Dish attempted to charge me for a new full package cost because I wanted to re-activate a Dish receiver which I had...

After it is hooked up, it should have a white screen saying "searching for satellite signal." After fifteen or twenty minutes, it will go to a black screen saying the same thing in a blue box. Once you are there, you can prerss the LIST button on the remote and record and copy your selected shows. This is assuming you have a newer DVR. Model R15 or higher. thanks keep updated

Only reads dvds

I would try a System Update this seems to solve a lot of "Don't Play or Stops Playing" Issues. On the PS3 go to the 2nd Row from the Left in the Crossbar (Menu) Scroll up to the Top and click on Check for Update. If not then i would check how you have the system hooked up and if it is allowing 1080i or 1080p to pass through to the TV. Only Component (Red, Green, Blue cable) or HDMI will pass these signals to the TV! DVD's are 480i which the Yellow, White and Red cable they give you will not show HD!

Use Visio just for dvds?


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.

Dvd playing blue picture

if it is hooked up with componant, thats the red blue green cables for video, and red white for audio, then you probabily eather dont have the red pluged all the way in, or you have the red audio, and red video---reversed, make sure to check them on the dvd player, and on the tv, if there correct, try using the composit input, that is the yellow red and white
