Perhaps 2 things. Does TV get a picture without DVD connected? If so I would bet you have a faulty connection in your signal board where the in jacks are at the back of the TV . Check to make sure cable from DVD are not bad, I have used cables before and got a false positive. Try turning and spinning the jacks once you have a picture.Make sure your signal board is firmly pressed into its slot on the signal board chassis. Thats it for now. Good luck.

Cant get it to show a picture


Could be how you have it connected and what input you have your TV on. Also, if this is a TV that is an extra DirecTv might not allow it viewable. Ok, I have a three TV setup with Dish - One controller box per TV - If this is similar, then this extra TV may not work with out some kind of work around. My living room TV is set for HDMI 1, Xbox is HDMI 2, BlueRay/DVD is HDMI 3 - So make sure your TV's feed from the source is being received.

Have a great night

Vizio VW46L10 TV has a 6 inch dark band across the top of the picture.


Change input device to some other like a DVD player.
Switch off TV, switch off power, remove plug and wait for 48 hours and retry. If problem persists, call in a qualified service technician.

Not sure if this is the tv or what. Was watching this tv yesterday. Then suddenly all other channels except for the one I was on either had squiggly colored lines or 3 mirrored versions of the picture. Now...


Does it happen on other inputs? If so, reset the tv, sat or cable box, unplug power and try again. Play a dvd. Does it happen on a dvd? If not, there is an issue with your cable source. If it shows on dvd too, contact your tv manufacturer. You need a repair.

Plays dvds on xbox 360 fine, but no picture for games/dashboard


already solved it. thanks. i couldn't see the xbox settings blade because of the blank screen so switched my component cable to the tv setting instead of the hdtv setting, then i could see the dashboard in non-hd and switched the resolution to 720p while simultaneously switching the component cable back to the hdtv setting. that worked.

Prima HDTV has a black screen on TV, but works fine while Playing DVD


try turning the channel up or down with the tv remote to input 1 or 2 depending on which one is being used for the dvd player. tv should use input 1. dvd should be on input 2.
when turning the channel set it to show the dvd screen, then go up 1. if it doesn't show, return and go down 1.

No Picture on TV


? What is the model # off the back ?

Does the video work on the RF coax cable input?

For instance,as a test,can you hook-up from VCR coax RF out

to TV coax in,put the TV on Chan. 3,play a tape and get audio and video?

 

Are you matching colors when trying the A/V inputs?Yellow,red,

and white out of DVD to yellow,red and white in on back of TV?

Then select video input on tv===dial "00" or use input button on

original RCA remote. Are you using original RCA remote that

came w/TV ? Do you have the owner/operator manual for the TV?

   Sorry to ask so many  ?????   Let me know how it goes!!  T.
