Question about Apex Digital AT3208S 32" TV

Blue Screen of Death???

Hello. I have an Apex Digital model # AT3208S with a manufacturing date of July, 2003.
This morning when I turned on my satellite & TV combination, the Apex would only give a "Blue Screen". My husband and I ran through a gauntlet of troubleshooting, trying to narrow down the problem. On an older TV, we checked the satellite receiver (in case there was some electrical crosstalk occurring), the satellite receiver worked as did the attacged gaming consoles and DVD player.
The Apex is the only one not working properly; it will turn on and we will only receive a blue screen and nothing more.

I can't fix it without seeing the unit but ther blue screen is typically the 'default' when no signal is found so it appears as if the problem is not far from the input of your receiver and one not likely to lend itself to DIY repair. Some sets, if working but not seeing a signal, will put an error message on the screen such as 'No Signal,' some not. Can you get any kind of display on the screen such as the menu?  Dumb question, I know.   

I won't promise much hope but did you use the same cable to connect your working set as was used with the Apex? It is very rare to have a cable fail once connected although I have had new cables that were intermittent after the bulk of manufacturing went from Taiwan to Mainland China.

Finding a code

What is the model number of the Apex TV you are using this remote for?
The CK5G-C1 remote was supplied only with model AT3208S TV. It will require no code when used with that model. If trying to use it with any other model TV, you can try the other Apex TV codes found in the AT3208s user's manual that can be found in .pdf format at :
Let me know if this helps, or I can be of further help.
In any case, good luck!

It is not clear what you mean by "the picture does not fit the screen". Usually the picture size is determined by the TV microprocessor based on information which it receives. If it is not displaying the picture properly this circuit is probably bad. The bad news is Apex does not support their products and it will probably be tough or impossible to fix this.
