Need help getting PIP to work

We have the Phillips Flat Screen and I cant seem to get the PIP to work. Clarification: I can get it to work if I want to watch a movie (from dvd, vcr) and a tv channel. But I cannot get 2 different tv channels to appear. It always says "No Source" on the pip screen. I tried looking in my manual but it was no help. I do not have a cable box. I just have the wire from the wall connected to the tv. Is this the problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Re: Need help getting PIP to work

You don't have a problem except you need two tuners. You say you have a VCR, which this has a tuner. Set your VCR to TV and and start the PIP and choose your VCR as the second source. You will now be watching two different channels, one from the TV tuner and one from the VCR tuner. Also just to clarify, you should have the cable wire from the wall running to the INPUT on the VCR and then a cable running from the OUTPUT on the VCR to your TV to make this all work correctly.

Phillips flat screen tv left half of screen is black right side is dim and flickering

Is your tv less than a year old? You need to call Phillips and see if it is covered under warranty. If that is not the case you need to get a few estimates. You want to know if it will be cheaper to repair or replace your tv set.

I have a sony bravia 32`` and i have pip on my tv but i cant selectionate that what i need to do?

picture in picture means you will need a second input for PIP to work. For example you are watching a movie on a dvd player thru the bravia if your antenna is also connected that becomes your second input. Therefore when you select PIP a small screen will appear and you will be able to see the channel that was last set on that screen... hope this helps

yes, PIP allows you to view 2 channels at one, one being the analogue picture another being a cable/freeview or sattelite picture, if you only use one of these to view programmes, you will se a blank screen.
