It sounds like the controller is bad. Try unpluging the tv and restart after a couple minutes. What happens after you go from an HD product and switch to regular TV? There are codes to input via the remote to run diagnostics but I haven't had any luck as of yet. Could you check for a part on the back of your TV? Im looking for a part # for the metal part that screws into the back of the TV, that holds the tv on the stand. I have the stand but lost the bracket. Any help would be nice. Thank you, John

My phillips 35 in tv model number 32PT41B121; serial number 45705181 is a black screen either saying either CV1 or AV1 or it goes to a gray screen with lines. How do I get it to go to the picture again? ...


I'm guessing you simply changed the input channel by accident. Press the input or video source button on your TV remote. Cycle through these inputs until you see your picture again. Hope that helps!

My Coby 32 in tv won't store my channel memory. When I first got the tv, it stored the channel memory but now I have to reprogram it every time I turn it on.


Hello

When autotuning the set goes throughs all transmitting channels, shows to be receiveing all channles, but seems to be tunes indefinitely, and no channels are locked, the memory IC inside the set has got damaged. In normal case, the TV will tune to all available channels at that tiime, in air or through the cable, whatever the case may be, tune up to last channel, and will stop, and will display the first channel it has got. Then we have to make adjustments on channels.
The memory IC i stated above is a small IC with 8 terminals, and can be located very near to system control Ic, at system control section. In some sets, it will be SMD type [Surface Mount Device], and in otheres will be of DIL type [Dual In Line]. If it is a DIL type, it is very easy to replace. If it is SMD type, proper care should be taken when replacing it, not to damage any track on circutit board and nearby components.
Open your TV, locate the IC and desolder it out of the printed circuit board, go for a same type and number, replace it. This will solve your problem.
OK.

Technika tv lcd 19-907 tuning in to sky in bedroom.


Hi i had the same problem but i have sorted mine now. What i was doing wrong was i wasnt tuning in the analoge channels only the freeview digital ones. To do this you need to first turn your tv on. Then press the "source" button, this will bring up a little menu at the top left hand side. When this menu comes up press the "Programme +" button (the one that you use for changing channels near the volume button) press this until you get up to "TV", when T.V is highlighted just wait 3 secs and it will switch over. You will probably get a blue screen with a no signal message (you are now on analogue) when you get this blue screen press the "tune" button. It will automatically start tuning in all of your channels, at first they will be fuzzy but as it works they will become clearer. Your sky channel will also be tuned in. When mine tuned in it didnt tune them in on the right numbers though, bbc2 was on number 1 etc. If you ever need to use a playstation or something it goes into the scart connection at the side of the t.v and you need to press "source" and go up to "scart". To get back onto the digital channels just press "dtv/dvd".
hope i helped!
