You've most likely blown the fuse in side the set, so you might want to check it.

My son trew a small car at the TV screen when black immediately. Is my TV done

not necessarily
take it to a repair shop as it may only need a new screen to fix
the real problem is that the repair may cost more than a replacement set

Why will my computer not work through tv

Heidi we need a little more information but I'll give a little background here for you so we know what you're trying to do with your TV.

First TVs don't run computer programs so running a computer game on your TV only works if you have a device like a Play Station system to "run" the software. Many TVs these days can be used as Computer monitors but the TV has to be compatible for his usage and have the right ports for instance to connect your laptop/computer to the monitor.

In either case, the TV only acts like a monitor so your computer programs won't run on a TV.

If you have an older TV, there may an interface you can buy that will let your older TV act like a monitor for your computer. You'd have to look up your model TV and see if there is such an interface for it.

Hope that helps.

I don't think i have the right remote for tv and I want to play playstation but can not get the tv off of tv or cabletv setting. need to get it to video setting. how do i do that?

Hi, Unplug the TV for 30 minutes and then try again. Go to menu settings and select video 1 or 2 but make sure you have it connected to V 1 or V2. If your play station has HDMI cable connection use that. If not use RCA jacks on the back of your TV and PS. Good luck.

I Just bought an LG 22 inch TV, LD35 series for my son's bedroom. The USB port is only for music and photos, do you know a way of making it read video files such as avi,xvid, etc? I would really...

Unfortunately the LG 22LD350 only has the capability to read music (MP3) and photos (JPG). To play movie files, you will have to use another device.

Son was using x-box with a Vizio 32" tv (E322VL) and the picture froze up but the sound kept playing. He could use the TV controls at all. Is it the TV or the x-box. Thanks for your help!!

Sounds like the x-box. Try hooking up a DVD player to it and see if you can get a picture from it.
Restart the x-box, and maybe get a can of air to blow the dust out of it.

My Visio turns itself off and on when I change to one channel

I had the same problem. Tech support told me to turn the tv off, then unplug it. Then hold the power button (on the tv - on the bottom of left side) in for 30 seconds and try again. This did solve my problem.

Aa password problem

check the manual if you have it because the tv probably came with a factory password for rating movies
