You need to reprogram your TV if you do not have a cable box or satellite box, otherwise those are going to be the only channels that the unit will pick up. If you do have a cable box or satellite box, just hit 0-3 or 0-4 if you are using a coaxial wire. If no box is present, you can just go into the menu and hit autoprogram - select cable for direct cable from wall, and antenna for antenna. Note: this particular TV is going to need a box in another 5 weeks due to the DTV transition, so my solution will only carry you for another few weeks.

Where can i buy a new remote mine got water damaged


It depends on the TV (make/model). Do you have an Input or Source button on the TV? Then you can use that button to change your input. A few models will offer an alternative option to change the source from the menu and have a Menu button on the TV. (Some TVs only let you change the source from the remote.)

Some remotes are available from the manufacturer's parts store (Sony, for example). remotes.com has the exact original or a replacement remote for many brands. For other TVs, a universal remote may work. Look for a higher end universal remote with a Source or Input button. Then test all of the codes for your TV brand. (Some codes may only enable parts of the remote functions; make sure you find a code that lets this button work.) The remotes that can be programmed with a USB connection to a computer are the easiest to set up for this situation.

Please add a comment with the specific make and model of your TV; I'll try to find a source for an exact replacement remote.

(some really old TVs let you swap from AV1 to AV2 to channels by going up or down through all channels to reach a point where you could swap the inputs.)

I have just got a cctv camera it only shows up on av2 however i can't record that channel i can only record av1, its driving me crazy!!!


Some VCRs have the ability to switch the output/input of AV2 so you can record it. Look for the AV1 or AV2 on the menu of the VCR for recording options.
Otherwise get one of these Scart boxes which you can find on Amazon. The buttons allow you to record and switch sources. They are not expensive.

How do I switch to AV3 , AV2 And AV1 functionon the sony Bravia 40 inch HDTV


Hi,

All you need to do is press the TV/VIDEO button in the top left corner of your remote. Each time you press, it will cycle through the connected external inputs, e.g. AV1, AV2, etc.

Hope this helps.

We turn it on and the screen stays blue...it is connected to the cable but won't get a picture nor does the original set up come on


I don't have the manual in front of me but what you need to do is change the source. The tv accepts input from various sources and connections. So you need to tell it where to find the signal you want. On your remote there will either be a button marked source or you will have to find it from the setup or menu button.

Usually there are 3 or 4 valid inputs. So all you do is press the source button and it switches to the next source. If there is nothing there you press it again and it goes to the next and so on. It will just keep cycling through the inputs as you press the button. You should see something marked as AV1 AV2 CABLE as you cycle through. When it finds the cable source it will then scan through and mark the avilable channels. This may take a few minutes. After that you can just use the remote to normally switch channels up/dwn etc.

How do u turn to scart channel without a remote


Not knowing what model of TV you have, the most common ways are either by using the Source button then scroll to AV1 input or if you have a Menu button there may be a sub-menu for Input, again select AV1 (depending on which AV connector you are linked you maight have to select AV2). If you have a DVD or VCR connected to the AV source, then when pressing play the DVD/Tape should automatically switch over to AV.

Magnavox 42 inch LCD TV


I was having the same problem. On my tv it was caused by a loose or faulty interface chip. I solved this on my television by opening the case and unplugging the circuit board at the top center where the menu and channel buttons are located. I've been running the tv for about a week and have had no more problems.
