    I am staying at my neighbors and accidently hit something and I am getting the same blue screen-no signal. My remote control does not have cable/antenna choice. I am at my wits end. I have tried everything I can think of. Please help!

With out turning on the T.V., Push the [Input] button on the remote control. The TV should turn on and activate the input menu, just continue to push [Input] until it is set on TV (or HDMI, etc.). this should solve your problem.

After several hours of frustration, I finally read somewhere that you need to be sure everything is turned on....I think that I must have hit a botton that turned one of the hook ups off. Finally after three days....

You may try holding down the INPUT button during startup or pressing it a few times quickly.
If that doesn't help you may consider

TV is probably in the RGB mode. Since no computer is hooked up to the set it detects "No Signal" and will then shut off within seconds. To resolve you will need to attach a computer (laptop is easiest if you have one) to the TV RGB input. Turn on your TV and it should show what is on your computer screen. Then go to the input button on your TV and scroll to the input for the cable signal, or TV if no cable being used, and all should be good.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

My factory DVD player will except disc the ejects it


If I understand your rather cryptic post correctly...

This very well could be a Blue-Ray disk loaded into a
non-Blue-Ray capable DVD player. Your car player's capabilities MUST match the disc, otherwise, the disc won't play.

I've run into this very same problem with my home DVD players. Which both are non-Blue-Ray capable, but I was able to verify the Blue-Ray discs on my PC.

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.
