Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My TV is about 1-1 1/2 yrs old. For some odd reason it now wants to change channels on its own, it will not stay on TV/AV input (to watch DVDs) and it will turn itself back on after it's been turned off. Can you please help?

Check the side (or front) buttons to see if any are jammed in. If not, the button panel or the main board may have gone out.

Magnavox 37MF23ID, would not turn on. Power button only blinks (green light). We have switched power cords and nothing happens. No picture, no sound.


if the power light comes on but the screen stays black, then your TV might be on the wrong input Channel. for example: you switch inputs when you play games or watch dvds vs. watching regular tv. Try to change the input

Finding the AV Channel on a TV


There may not be one on your TV. If your TV has audio and video input jacks then keep changing channels going from high channels to lower ones. When you get to Channel 2 then the next one down should be AV. If your TV doesn't have the A/V input jacks, then you'll need a modulator. This will take the audio and video outputs of the DVD player and put them on TV channel 3 or 4 and insert it into the antenna connection of the tv.

I have a visco TV and I cannot get it off of channel 1. The remote does not work so I bought a universal remote but it still won't work. I tried to codes for NEC and Polariod as suggested by others,...


There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. 
I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used?
Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Hi,

Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

Regards,
BElectric

I have a Pansonic TH-C42HD18 Plasma TV. It works fine when I play DVDs (through HDMI connection) and as well as you would expect watching VHS tapes through a composite connection. However, when watching...


You say you have switched AV cables. Have you tried switching input sockets as well? In other words, have you tried using the HDMI socket you normally use for DVD for the cable box input to watch TV? If so, does the problem stay with that input device or does the problem stay with the socket?
Also you say it doesn't matter "whether the cable is connected at all," but I'm not sure whether you mean the cable company cable or the (presumably) HDMI cable connecting the cable box to the TV. Can you clarify?

Record a digital channel while watching and analog channel


Take a red, white, and yellow AV cable and plug it from the AV out of the cable box to the red, white, and yellow In of the dvd recorder (change cable box to the channel you want to record). Then change your TV to the channel you want to view.

Have fun!

Input channels


I would try to replace the AV switch IC which directs i/o signals to the tv decoding stage.

Sharp tv changing channels


Well, the only thing that seems to be working so far is to plug AV cables into the "input 2" ports (on the front of TV). I plugged in my PS2, without turning it on. It has not switched at random since (about 30 minutes - it had been switching off and on for the past 2 hours). Anyone else have similar success?
