Hello divalisaf,

These are a few things I want you to check first.

1) Make sure the cable set top box is on and the cable is connected to the TV properly (This may seem simple but I have had to charge many people a $60.00 service fee plus a $70.00 travel fee just to turn on a cable set top box)

2) Make sure the TV is set to the proper input you are using (RF( F connector) , HDMI, Component video, and or Composite Video)

3) Make sure the TV is set to the proper channel (either channel 3 or channel 4 depending on your area) The cable set top box should be action as your tuner.

If all of these conditions are met, then we can begin troubleshooting.

First determine if the other inputs work (HDMI, Component video (RGB), Composite video (yellow), s-Video (6 pronged black cable).
If the inputs work then you possibly have a tuner problem
If the inputs don't work then then problem is likely in the video microprocessor.

If the problem is in the tuner or the connective circuitry then we will have to determine where to get a replacement tuner (or you can just use one of your other video inputs)

If the problem is in the video section (which includes the microprocessor) we are going to have to troubleshoot the video section which will involve you having a background in electronics, if not I would suggest having a qualified TV technician perform service on this TV.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Projection TV. DVD works. Cable often seems, "untuned". Static & un-fine-tuned sound of channel with black screen. Then, later, it will come on just fine. Sometimes, will go back to untuned status.


I would suspect your cable box first. I would unplug the power cable from your cable box and wait 60 seconds. Plug it back in and try to watch cable tv. I would also make sure the coaxial cable going from the wall to your cable box is connected properly. I would also make sure the cable going from the cable box to the tv is connected properly. Test your tv and see if it works correctly when you watch cable. If this fixes the issue you are good to go.
  • If this makes no difference use a set of new cables if you have them.
  • If this does not work then call your cable company. They may have to replace your cable box.

How do you get your xbox 360 to play, on a 65'' mitubishi projection tv,its connected but nothing comes on screen when i put a movie in just a blank screen and no sound,if i'm on a channel,the channel...


Hello

The Xbox 360 connects to a TV using either

- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio

- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)

- HDMI

So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.

Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).

Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.

This should make the Xbox work.

When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.

Which generation playstation are you referring to The PS2 or PS3. The PS2 would be connected with a composite cable by default i.e red white and yellow cable.

Press the AV button and a list of inputs come's up.Select av1 or av2 and check if you get a picture. If you use a ps3 then same as before press AV button on remote and select appropriate option on screen HDMI,Component or Composite.

go to menu settings, find add/delete channel or programming or tuning. There should be an option that says "autoprogram" select this option and let the program run thuroughly. It will read and install all available channels. Do make sure tv is set to CATV and that it is NOT set on AIR.

Turn on goes blue then turns off


The most common reason for a TV to display a blue screen with no picture is because the source device has not been set to the proper mode.

If you are using a cable or satellite set-top box, ensure that it is turned on and set to an active station. If the set-top box is connected to the television using a coaxial cable, then the television should be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If you have are using a VCR that is turned on, but not playing a tape and not tuned to a receivable channel, then a blue screen will be displayed on the TV. To resolve this, turn off the VCR or tune it to a receivable channel. If a cable or satellite set-top box is connected to the VCR using a coaxial cable, then the VCR should normally be set to Channel 3 or 4 to receive the signal.

If the blue screen is not because of a connected VCR or set-top box, the TV may require service.

How have you got freeveiw connected to your set and what input are you using?
when connecting the freeveiw unit to the tv did you have the power connected and turned on to either tv or freeveiw?
how many sets are connected to the freeveiw unit,
All these things can affect this equation,

it sounds like the set had a power surge from the plugging in of the freeview,
the f connection output from the freeveiw set has a live voltage feed that powers either the mast head amp or the balun in the center of the dish,
for these to work correctly the cable between the freeveiw and the aerial/dish needs power,
this annoying little fault can only be remedied by taking it to the repair man,

Let us know the outcome thanks ,
hope this helps,

Older ge tv but cable ready-no remote.... need to find channel to play dvd player on.Recently connected dvd player but can't play a dvd.The tv is connected to a cable box.


Hey wegodsky,

If you're not able to find the right channel on your TV to use your DVD player, you may want to try changing the TV's input source instead. Many TV models will require that the TV be set to an external antenna in order for any other device (like a VCR or DVD player) to function correctly. This can usually be done by pressing the menu button on the TV itself and selecting an option similar to "Input," "Source" or "Antenna" if you do not have a remote control for your TV.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
