Question about Sanyo DS27800 27" TV

My tv is stuck on video

As per the previous troubleshooting forum, if there is no input available to select, how is that easy if everything is highlighted in red, except the language and one other option that allows you to select movies, news, sports and manual. By selecting manual, it allows you to change the tint, color, etc. Thanks Collector

Re: My tv is stuck on video

I do not know your original problem. If you are inputting video by the Scart connector the television will automatically read that input because the Scart has a priority, pin 8 I think, which will be at 12 volts when the video is not in standby. Unplug the scart lead and the TV should revert to Recieved channels. If this is cable connected, ie. not via an aerial, then I have not an answer, try the cable company.

I have a 32" RCA 32V432T TV that only shows snow now. I've checked everything externally but still no picture. Any solutions?

There could be several things that can cause this: 1. There are no analog channels in your area. 2. Check the menu setup and verify that you select the proper input (antenna, cable, etc). 3. The TV tuner is defective Try using the composite input on the TV (there are normally 3 jacks per input). Yellow for video and red and black for audio. If you dont have the proper cable, pick one up in you local 99 cent store or an electronic store.
Connect the "output" of your device (VCR, cable box, Tivo, dvd player, etc) to the "input" on the TV. Then use your TV remote to select the proper input.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.

I just got a toshiba theaterview sd dolby digital

That particular TV has both "component video" and standard video inputs. The DVD player might have a component video output (it will be three separate connectors of three different colors.) You will need a component video patch cable available at most electronics stores. If your DVD player doesn't have that input then use the standard video connector, yellow wire connects the video out on the DVD player to the Video input on the TV. The red and white wires are the left and right stereo audio connections they also make a cable for that. It will be color coded so make sure you match the codes from the output to the input on the TV. This set has two video inputs, you will get your best resolution if you use them instead of a "channel" input.

You will need the remote to select the video 1 or video 2 inputs. You can connect your DVD player and your game at the same time. Just use video 1 for the DVD and video 2 for the game. They require the yellow, red and white connector cables. Just follow the color code and match the colors with the jacks on the TV and other units. There is actually a third video input Video 3 behind the little door on the front panel. That would be convenient for the game if you want to remove it easily when not in use.

Push the menu button on the remote (big button in the middle) go to the video function and select either Video 1 for your DVD, Video 2 or 3 for your game.

The correct video input for what you want to view is important. Also if you don't have the user's manual it's available for free here:

You might also need to download an Adobe Viewer which allows you to read .pdf files.
That is also available for free at:

If you already have malware protection (viruses and the like) un-check the MacAfee box so you don't download that too.

Remote won't work - channel stuck at Video2

Remove the battery from the remote then press each button twice.

Insert new batteries then check the operation of the Remote control.

To troubleshoot the video 2 issue, connect different video source to the TV then select the connected video input.

If the issue persists then try resetting the TV to the original factory settings.

good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a sony trinitron XBR and the PIP won't turn off. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please make sure that one input is connected to the UHF/VHF port of the TV and other is connected to composite or component ports. If you have connected likewise, please perform the steps below:
  1. Ensure the video source is turned on.
  2. Ensure the video source is connected to an available VIDEO input jack on the back of the television. IMPORTANT: The VIDEO 5 input cannot be used to view a program in the PIP window.
  3. On the television remote control, press the TV FUNCTION button.
  4. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  5. If the issue is not resolved, connect the Audio/Video (A/V) cable from the video source to a different VIDEO input jack on the television.
  6. On the television remote control, in the PIP section, press the TV/VIDEO button to select the appropriate video input for the PIP window.
  7. If the issue is not resolved, replace the A/V cable.

The who input button

usually a tv that doesn't "see" video on the S-video will not even "switch" to it.  It just goes to the next Svideo, RCA etc..  
Make sure your cable is not damaged. (on both ends) Does the svideo source and svideo cable work with another tv or video device?
31GT740 Manual From the Manual:   " WHO•INPUT In TV mode, press WHO•INPUT to toggle through the available Video Input channels (VID/SVID and the current channel). In SAT mode, press to select available channel lists.
Using the WHO•INPUT Button Use the WHO•INPUT button to toggle through the available input sources (VID and the current channel) and view the content from the component you have connected to the TV. 1. Press TV to place the remote in TV mode. Make sure that the content from the component is turned ON. 2. Press WHO•INPUT to tune to the available input source and view the component. 3. Press WHO•INPUT again to tune back to the channel you were previously watching.  "

RCA F25645 25in TV.

I have this same TV. The DVD player is either hooked up to the video or s-video input. Go to the Menu (either through the remote or from the front of the TV) and select the Setup option. Go to the part where it asks if you want to use a DVD player. Select yes. Then select Video Input. Exit the Setup. When you hit the DVD button, it will switch to the Video input. The second step is to go into the Menu and select Channel, then go to Video Input Source. From there, select which input you are using for your DVD player, the S-Video or the standard Video (yellow composite cable).
