To play videogames on an old tv PLEASE HELP

You'll need to switch the TV into Video mode. Most TV sets will have a button on the front panel labelled "input" or "tv/video," and pressing this button will cycle through the various inputs your TV has.

Alternatively, this button may be located on your remote control.

Rarely, no button exists, and video input is selected by changing the channel below channel 2; as if you were trying to select channel 1. This will select the video input on sets without a separate input selector button.

I have an Emerson flat screen and I would like to hook up my computer tower to it to use it as a moniter. I have the HDMI cord plugged into the tower and the tv, however I cant get it to come onto my tv. I...

Usually, you have to use one of the function keys at the top of the keyboard to transfer the monitor signal from the normal output to the HDMI. It will depend on the model of computer. You might try holding down your function (FN) key and depressing F5. That's usually it. But it could be F9 on some models. You should see a design on the function key that looks like a monitor. See if that does it.

Turns on but blank screen just says no signal. Also blinking red light

If you have an lcd or modern thin screen tv, go into your menu and make sure your input selection is correct. If you're hooking up to a cable network, you will want to select the HDMI input coming from the cable box (HDMI 1, HDMI 2, etc.). This is for the newer cable systems that have the HDMI cable plugged into the tv. If you have the older, bnc connection (round with a wire in it), you will have to select TV or the input.
If all of the input selections are in order, you could have a faulty cable, or a bad cable box. Try to swap the box out with another tv, if available, to verify if the box is, indeed good.
If you have a standard tv, check the cable box on another tv, also, and swap out the cord to check it, also.
Otherwise, if the cable box is good, and the cords are good, you may have a problem with the tv itself, in which case servicing will be required.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have the remote for my sanyo mts tv but i cant find out how to get it to switch to video mode so i can play games on it there is no button

There is button on your remote labeled TV/AV . Press the button to get a blank screen with AV written on the screen. If your game device is connected at the back to this AV socket ( Yellow / Red / White ) you will see the game menu display.
On some of the TV remotes it might not be written TV/AV but INPUT SOURCE or just a picture of a TV screen with an arrow pointing inwards ( that LOGO is the universal symbol for INPUT )

I cannot get my tv to play video games! What channel does it have to be on in order to play video games, I don't have the remote?

What style of connectors are you using from your video game to the TV?

If its the Yellow Red and White that is Composite video.

You have to change the input on the TV to VIDEO or Composite Video, depending on what its called on your model of TV. There may be an input button on the TV, otherwise you have to select it through the menu.

It is not on a channel unless you are using a really old game console with an "F" style connector, which is the one that screws on like cable vision.

Hope this helps!

I usually play video games on the rca 14 inch true flat tv but my remote broke that they gave me so i cant go to input to play video games. Do i need a new remote for that or can you do it a diffrent way...

Unless the set has front panel menu buttons and the on-screen menu allows you to select the source, the answer is "no, you can't switch without the remote". If the original remote is really broken, you may be able to use an RCA-brand universal replacement that has an "input" or "source" button. Unless the original is physically damaged, before you toss it check the battery contacts inside. They sometimes get loose from handling the remote a lot and don't make good connections. Also make sure the new batteries are fresh and facing the right way.

TV screen goes black but tv is on. But will stay on sometimes.

i have a 2000ish 32 inch trinitron Wega and i have had the EXACT same problems as you have, except mine was blacking out more and more frequently, but yes if u changes the channel or hit return onto the same channel you're watchin the picture wil come back, but not very long, about the longest it'll show a steady picture is 1/2 hr, but it's usualy going black within every 10-15 mins or so.

I took it to a Sony approved/recommened repair shop and aftet having a look i was told it would cost $200 cd including taxes to replace a 'vacuum tube' or something like that, i wish i could be more specific anout the part. I'm still considering whether or not to go through with the repair. I might just buy a working/used newer Tube Flascreen with HD for another couple hundred dollars. If there was a newer 2003+ 32 or 36" Sony that has a good track record I would love to hear suggestions. I don' trust flat panels, way too mny horror stories, and for every 1 i hear about there's probably 10-20 more.I'll give them another 5 years or so to get their acts together.

On the other had, if i do decide to get my 32" wega fixed i will post the results and the exact pt numbers of the pts used i the repair. Your problem is exactly the same as mine, to the letter. I'm a mechanic by trade, but i have a good feeling they're not going to give me correct pt # until i have payed them to fix it. Or else i'd order the part and install it myself.

Good Luck,
