    someone is going to have to open it who knows what they are doing and check to see first if voltage to the backlight with set on, if voltage there then go in search of a part number to price the board.

The set may use back lights inside to light the screen which if out will cause this---either the voltage source for the lights or they are not being turned on by the set. This would be the light source for your picture.

SOURCE: att uverse remote won't work with other devices

Yes you have to use the recommended Uverse codes, and follow the directions to enter the code. Hold the tv button down, on the Uverse remote, then with it stil held down add the OK button, let go of both, then you will see the lights at the top of Uverse remote light up, it is then ready to accept the code, it will be a four digit code, Go to helpme@att.net, and look under TV, then programming the remote is there. Put remote Code in the att search box if you can't find it.

SOURCE: The screen shows ''Weak Signal'' and no picture.

Mine did the same thing once. I think all I did was hit the setup on the remote, and let it run back through all the channels and then it worked just fine.

I hope this works for you.

SOURCE: Sony Bravia 40'' LCD 240Hz TV can't get video signal from DVD

Are you absolutely sure you have it wired up right? Are the Cable RIGHT wires color to color, is the "Correct Input" selected? Remember you do NOT use "Channels" but an AV, AUX, or External.input. Most DVD etc, use AV, IE: Yellow, (Video), Red, (Audio), White (Audio) for the OUT connections. These go color to color at TV end. And uses 3 Cables. The "Other" type of Output/Input is Component Video. This is ALL Video, Red, Blue, Green, these go color to color as well. BUT you MUST also send the Sound, Via the AV, IE: The Red & White, AV, Audio IN/OUT connections, So you in this case would have 5 cables/connections in all.

How do I attach a combination VHS recorder/DVD player to my new Sceptre 19


The best way of connecting is an HDMI cable if both have this. If both have SCART then use a SCART cable. Using the RGB input is really old skool, you will need to use the TV controls to select that input because it won't select itself.

Portable dvd player dropped now has sound and faint picture


I usually prefer to fix things but here unless this is a very expensive unit let it go, it did enough damage to cause image issues and a screen hinge broken, if it can be repaired it will always be prone to some collateral issues that may show up later, like a small car in a accident, no matter how good the repair place is it will never be quite the same.

Black screen


If its LCD get the room very very dark and turn on--with a flashlight near the screen look closely at the screen to see if you see a very faint image of the picture or not---Most LCD flatscreen's (not Plasma) use what is called a back light to light the screen--light source.

If a faint picture can be seen that way the light is not on.

What is the best dvd player for a sceptre 32 lcd hdtv


Yes, an hdmi connection is the very best. However, if you are not able to connect your dvd player the other way, just choosing hdmi or not might not solve your issue. Hdmi connections allow upconverting and thus a higher picture quality for you.

I have a sceptre x42gv komodo 42 lcd tv for about three years, and lately the tv has had problems recieving the signal from the hdmi port to the DVR. it would show the picture in a very very dim light with...


Check the TV with another HDMI stuff, like a DVD player or a playstation 3 or something. If it still gives you the same problem then you know it's the TV. If it doesn't then it means something is wrong with your DVR. If it's the TV most likely you'll need to open it up and see which part is broken. A simple diagnostic is opening the back and seeing if any capacitors are blown. If those small capacitors are bulging that means they're toast and needs to be replaced. I know that you can also buy parts from Sceptre, so maybe see which part is broken and buy it from them to replace it?

I bought an insignia 26" 1080p yesterday and the display shows that the tv is currently showing the picture at 720p. How can i adjust this so that it is 1080


Generally speaking, your TV will display the signal it receives. DVD player output, for example, is 480p, but an upconvert DVD player can output the signal at 720p or 1080p. You should adjust your components (e.g. cable/satellite box, DVD/Blu-ray players, etc.) to the desired compatible output.

try all the combinations - the worst that will happen is the unit will not repond to the remote - if not then try the next code - its that simple.
Pease bear in mind that not all functions of the original remote may be available on the universal remote - this is quite often the case unless the universal remote also has a manual learning function
