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

I have a apex tv and a dvd/vhs recorder, with a cable from wall only, how do I install


If you wish to record (VHS) off cable :
First connect the co-ax cable from the wall to the input on the DVD/VHS , then connect a second from the output of the DVD/VHS to the input of the TV.
You will need to match the channel (3/4) output and input. There should be a switch on the back of the DVD/VHS.
Tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 to match, To watch DVD/VHS .
Channel selection will be with the DVD/VHS when it is powered on.
TV will tune to channel when the DVD/VHS is off.

Good evening, I've gone through the manual and I can't get my TV to show 100hz (always 50hz), also on some channels I cannot get the picture to fit the screen (it's 32''). Any help would be greatly...


Well, first the 100Hz issue. Your TV will display a descriptor or the signal it is receiving, not a descriptor of the picture you are watching. Your TV panel has a native resolution and frequency. In your case, that frequency is 100Hz. Everything, like it or not, must be converted to 100Hz for the TV to work. In your manual, you are simply adjusting setting which smooth the picture and make it flow better than it would at 50Hz. This feature is slight of hand and is probably working just fine. As for the picture fitting the screen; HD programs fill the screen of HD channels.... SD (Standard Definition) programs use black bars on each side when on HD channels. You can use any available wide or picture size feature your TV may have to stretch the picture. You may be unable to stretch the picture, due to restrictions (some TVs will not resize HD formats).

Can not get tv to reach channels from 2 to 70


Sounds like you need a set-top box from the cable company.  You hook that up to your TV, tune the TV to Channel 3 or 4, and use the set-top box to tune in all the channels.
