Screen remains blue with "no signal" written on it, inspite of a cable connection and, of course, the input set to cable

Screen remains blue with "no signal" inspite of being hooked up to cable and the input set on "cable".  Some channels have a hint of signal, shadows, etc.but most remain blue with "no signal".

    I did hook it up to a vcr and it works fine.  Had a salesman at Best Buy tell me he thought I needed a new tuner board.  I see them (used) on the internet for $100 to $150, but I hesitate to spend another $150 on top of the original $1000 3 years ago.

Probably a bad video processor board

But, 1st try using a different type of Cable such as IRC, STD, or HRC different freqs and channels

Also, try using a vcr or dvd on one of the inputs to see if that works

    1st try using a different type of Cable Frequency type such as IRC, STD, or HRC different freqs and channel Layout



    Also, disable the Blue Screen option in setup



    Are you cwertain that the cable input you are using is the correct one? There are 2 of them on this set. One is strictly for High Def and the Other Cable. I don't want to sound silly or anything but, I have done this myself

Blue screen


This sounds like a signal issue. make sure your antenna is connected. Try a different input device. connect a dvd player, set top box for satellite or cable, or a camera, set the tv to the appropriate input and check for an image. Hope this helps.

I have a apex 32-inch tv model (AT3208S), This tv was connect to a converter box, the other day electric power went out in our area for about 8 mins or less, once the power was back on the tv screen was...


OK, I have one of these TVs, and here's a thought: There's nothing wrong with the TV nor with the cable converter box. Please bear with me. Since I don't know how much you may know about TVs in general and this one in particular, I'm going to assume you know nothing and go from there.

This TV has several different "inputs", which are ways a signal can be transferred from its source to the TV, where it "outputs" the video image. I believe this particular TV has 5 different inputs: In descending order of the quality of the video signal, there're one S-video input (a 4-pin video connector plus red & white audio), three composite video inputs (3 connectors each: yellow video and red/white audio--audio connectors are the same for both s-video and composite), and one coax connector (a single large screw-on connector with a little wire sticking up through the center of it) for a total of five different inputs.

The problem with these Apex TVs is that they always default to the Antenna/coax input first when they are restarted. Most people use the TV to display an input signal (like the cable box or a DVD player) connected either to the S-video or to one of the 3 composite video inputs, not to the coax input, which just displays the channel numbers from 1-125 when it's set to do that (hit the "display" button on your remote to toggle showing the channel numbers for the coax input). If there's no signal coming into the coax input, the screen with appear blue. (If it's blue, it simply means it's not getting a signal via the input to which the TV is currently set. You can turn off the blue screen in the menu settings, but then you'll just get a blank screen. It's probably better just to leave the screen blue; at least you can tell the TV's actually trying to display something that way.)

You have to manually select the proper input by pressing the "video" button either on the remote (lower right corner) or the "video" button directly on the TV (hidden control panel under the middle of the margin around the bottom of the TV screen. You'll have to press on the door, and the whole control panel rolls open to reveal another set of composite inputs and some buttons. The video button is the one farthest to the left.)

Anyhow, by pressing the video buttons, you'll cycle through the various inputs. Assuming your cable converter box is functioning properly, powered on, receiving a signal from the cable company, and connected to the TV via a(n) appropriate wire(s) connected correctly, you should see the output from the cable box on the screen when you cycle through to display the proper video input.

Another possibility: the power outage fried the input to which your cable box was connected on the back of the TV. If that's the case, your cable box would probably also have sustained damage. You can check to see if the various video inputs on the TV are working by connecting different source inputs (like a BluRay/DVD/VCR player, video game console, video camera, etc.) to one of the other inputs and see if you get a picture when the TV is set to the appropriate inputs. (Remember, the "video" button is what selects/changes/cycles through the various video inputs.) One of the sets of inputs went bad on my TV. I just use the other ones.

''no signal'' message on blue screen after watching for 10-30 min


First try another signal input like a DVD player or other source, is the signal displayed ok? Then you have lost the signal on one input from whatever the device is.

Auto sensor finding wrong inputs, cant find good component signal


as any new technology TV as yours. your tv has a microcomputer (kind of mother board) that is not detecting your video inputs or any information to control. The initial set up cannot finish and there it go the answer: you have a blue screen or green with the bars (of course this is another area but still related with the control of video that it is another funtion af the main board). So the outside of the tv is ok now because you made many actions directed to troubleshoot conections, and there are fine, but the problem isn't there this problem is at the board level of the tv. technician is needed.

No input signal form a laptop to a projector


Hi jkoceng,

What type of interface cable are you using to connect to the projector? 15-pin VGA? S-video?

Generally on laptops if you look at the keyboard on the function keys (F1, F2, etc.) you'll see little icons such as adjustment of volume, brightness, etc. Look for one that looks like a monitor or screen. Usually this is on the F5 or F6 key. If the icon is blue, look for the corresponding key on the keyboard (Fn key, CTRL, Alt, etc.) and then hold that when connected to the projector while you press the appropriate function key. This should alleviate your problem.

Of course, you'll also want to be certain that you're using the correct input function on the projector.

Tv problem


Your TV is telling you that the cable, antenna, or another input has no signal coming into it. When there is no signal, the set mutes itself to a blue screen to avoid your seeing "snow" on the screen. You need to check your connections. IF all are O.K., then your problem must be in the tuner or A-V input. Stargazer
