Default startup input

When the startup timer is not set, the TV defaults, it seems, to the coax input. I want it to always default to AV1, because that is where my TiVo feeds in and I don't want to change the TV AV mode each time I power up. If the timer is set for AV1, then it seems to set the default to that even for manual power on. Am I missing something?

AV1 input question

The TV probably defaults to the RF channels. If it is an analogue only tuner model then it will go to the last used/programmed RF channel.

How do i change the input

The 27" TV uses the same instructions as the 20", and I found the manual for you at the link below. Answering your question directly, here is the section of the instructions about changing input:
Changing the TV's Input Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, if you've connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR & DVD) using the Video/Audio input,you will want to be able to view the signal from the component.To do this, you will need to switch from the ' TV ' input to the 'AV1-AV3, CVI' Input, as follows. 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then " Set-Up " menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHV buttons to select " Input ". 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change the input source from ' TV ' to 'AV1, AV2, AV3, CVI'. 4 Wait 20 seconds, or press DISPLAY button or MENU button to return to normal TV viewing. * CVI means the Component Video Input (Y/ PB/ PR) from the DVD player etc.* Users can also select these input modes with the TV/AV button or the INPUT button on theremote controller. * On the AV1 mode , if you connect the S-VHS jack to your TV, "AV1" is changed to "S-VIDEO".
The link to the manual is below.

The screen went from color to all blue. Is it a tube?

Hello there,

That sounds like the TV went to a different input best thing to do here is use the input key on the remote control, if you do not know what input the TV needs to be set too check the back if all the Connections are going to AV1 then you know the input needs to be on AV1 , if you need me to find the input for you i would need more information .

How do I put the GE remote xs stereo monitor into input mode without the remote?

A good universal remote to use with that monitor is the RCA RCRN04GR, available at WalMart. I recently bought a 25" GE Remote Monitor XS Stereo from a Days Inn that was replacing all of those monitors with Flat Screen TV's. When I got it home I found that it would not go to channel 4 which was default with my COX Digital Cable Box. Channel 3 is the default channel on the monitor, so I ran an AV cable from the cable box, disconected the coax and hooked up the AV cable to the back of the TV and that solved the problem. I hope that answer was helpful.

Want to hook up DVD player with red, white, yellow cable and need instructions to do so. Also, how do I view the movies on the screen. We seem to be having qa problem getting the correct connection and...

The Red & White Cable must be plug into the Audio IN of the TV RCA jack this is for Left & Right audio. The Yellow must be plug in into Video Input of the TV for the picture. If you select the AV1 as your DVD input, to view it you must set the tv to AV1.

I can't work out how to change the default input Sony KV-24WX1U

Don't think it can be done,you'll have to change it manually or it should go to AV1 when you turn on the cable decoder.

Hooking up & seeing a dvd player?

does the dvd have a coax output for coax antenna input on the tv? you can use that untill you can get the video input selection straight with the tv and a remote that supports rca's extra functions such as menu , tv/av button
also if there is a( wake-up) on/off timer in the tv menu , then you can also set it to come on with the video input instead of a tv station,set it a few minutes after the time it is when you set it( then just turn off the tv set after the time is set and you have exited the menu, then it will come on with the video input instead of a tv station)
otherwise you will need that remote that supports the video input selection on your tv

Tv went boom

it sounds like the display may have finally gone out, however i would recommend to check other inputs (AV1, AV2, etc) by connecting a dvd player or game console. it may just be the one input that you have your cable box or coax cable connected to, so testing the other inputs will help determine this. if you get the situation with all inputs, no video but sound works, then you will either need to have your tv repaired or replaced.
