Re: my TV keeps shutting off

Tvtek is on the right track. The remote will not solve the problem. Sounds like a voltage regulator in HV circuit if it only lasts a few seconds. If it stays on for a couple of minutes, beam limiter cicuit is pushing to overload and shutting unit down. Magnavox set not hard to repair, but a 27" set is not cost effective to repair either.

Re: my TV keeps shutting off

Sounds like a shut down issue. Replacing the remote control wont fix the issue if the set wont stay on even using the power button.

I cannot get the TV or the remote to move to channel 3 to access cable, any ideas? The menu screen will not come on.

You are using the tv original tv remote?Yes,push the buttons on the remote that said like VIDEO or INPUT see if u can get in a tv screen like video 1 or 2.Yes,than you can get your pay cable tv go through video outputs 1 or 2.By using a RCA cable Y,R,W plug plug in one end to the tv IN Holes like Y,R,W and the other end of the cable Y,R,W to the cable box OUT holes Y,R,W.If your tv is too old, that don't even have VIDEO INPUT 1 and 2 for basic VCR and DVD players hook up.It 100% time to upgrade your tv because your tv is out dated and extinct as a DO DO bird.

My cable company disconnected my model av-36d502 tv and when they reconnected the cable box there was no color do I need the remote to remedy this problem because I don't have it

If you are using a box unplug it and plug it back to let it boot up--if not have them back to verify the hookup etc is correct---they should without being asked also swap the box if used for another box.

Hi, I bought this tv at thrift shop last week. No instruction manual available. I got cable from Time Warner. Got the cable signal and got tv working. 3 days later no cable. I don't know how to...

If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner

I accidently pushed something on the remote to my sony wega trinitron and now it says 'no signal' I don't know how to get the picture back

You probably switched the TV from analogue to digital mode or vice-versa.

There should be a small button on your remote control marked DTV or ATV. Try pressing this.

If you are using a separate cable/satellite/tuner box from a SCART cable, turn off the tv, and turn off the cable/satellite box. Then turn the TV back on, then the cable/satellite box back on. The TV should recognise there is an external input and you should be OK.

Yes go to menu with the buttons on your TV and go to CATV sometime u can press your channel button until your channels run out and if u keep pressing the channel button it will go into game mode or in other words switch to the RCA jacks in front of your TV

Most cable supplies provide a switched receptacle on the rear of their cable boxes. Plug the power supply for the tv in there if you want the cable box to shut the tv off when you shut the cable box off.

Daewoo DVN-14F6N

Same problem...Went to Goodwill Store, they usually have a large basket of remotes. I found a Daewoo remote for a TV only, HOWEVER on the bottom it has a AIR/CABLE button. The remote doesn't say Daewoo on it only..."Remote Controller R-25B03". The rest of the button of course work with the TV portion of the DVN-14F6N.

The TV and Cable box both continue to shut down; Please Help!!!

Do you mean that the TV shuts off and the cable box also shuts off? Is the TV plugged into the back of the cable box? This sounds to me as if the cable box is defective and the TV is plugged into the cable box instead of the power strip. To prove whether or not the cable box is defective, plug the cable directly into the TV, plug the TV directly into the wall outlet and watch one of the lower channels. If the TV acts up and shuts off, have the TV serviced. If the TV plays fine, replace the cable box.
