ELDFW464 INPUTS SHOW BLUE NO SIGNAL SCREEN

The wires work correctly, I have double checked with another TV. About 4 weeks ago my component input on the TV stopped working from my XBOX. While I was playing it, half the screen went black, the other half still had the game up. Then it came back completely. The next day, the screen went completely out and the sound still worked. Now it just shows a blue no signal on both component inputs. Yesterday, my VGA input on the TV shows no signal from the PC (not the cable). I just want to know the correct part to change and maybe the proper methods. Thanks.

SOURCE: Unusable Signal

Hello Mike:

The issue that you are having is with your small signal board and it needs to be replaced, it sounds like the microprocessor on that board is getting locked up.

SOURCE: PDP4210EA1 Plasma TV black and white pic on reg RF input-no signal on other inputs

does the DVD player connect to the same port as the regular cable vision ?
If no I would be looking at the port that the cable vision connects to, to see if part of that circuit is shot.
Another question, has the T.V. been moved from one location to another just prior to this happenning? As plasma T.V.s can only be tilted on a 15 degree angle.

SOURCE: hdmi inputs stopped working

It sound like the cable box or the Blue ray player is set to high - such as 1080P when the set is only rated at 720 - try scaling the output down and see if that helps

Right now there seems to be many people with the same TV problems with sony and HDMI cables. Most of the solutions are resetting the TV and sony product. Try leaving your TV unplugged for a hour to let it reset itself.

Check the cable connector. If it is OK then the turner has gone bad. Replace main board will fix it.

How to I get the TV to show TV input. Show me everything else?


Hi EA.

Some of the answer will depend on the particular model of TV you have. Most flat panel TVs have multiple possible inputs, with some array of choices like HDMI 1, HDMI 2, Component, VGA, Cable that you can toggle through with your remote.

Most of them, in my experience, also will check first for inputs from the different components, and skip them if they don't show a video signal. In some cases, as was the case with my past Mitsubishi rear projection TV, each input channel had an option for either showing it or skipping it when cycling through inputs - that way if you just had Cable and a DVD player, you didn't have to cycle through 8 other inputs each time you switched.

If you're saying that a VGA input to the TV shows up fine on the screen, but other inputs don't, then that narrows it down and shows that the screen is working OK. I'm not completely clear then whether you have things plugged into other inputs like HDMI or component. if nothing else is plugged in, I'd guess the system detects no inputs from those ports and ignores them. If they are plugged in, but you don't see them, then you likely will need to activate or toggle those particular channels to be included amongst selections.

Hoping this helps, and Happy Holidays!

My wii when i turn it on it only has lines going across the screen.. about a week back it was saying something about the memory. now it wont load the wii menu nor will it load any games... if anyone knows...


Picture Is Black and White or Does Not Appear
Situation:

The console powers on and shows a black and white image on the television screen
The console powers on and there is no image on the television
 

What to do:

Determine whether the Standard AV Cables (packaged with the system) or the Component Cables (sold separately) are being used.
AV Cables
Ensure the yellow, red, and white cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)
Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.
If the TV does not have the yellow, red and white inputs, it will most likely have component inputs which allow standard AV cable use. Try these AV hookup steps. (How To)
Component Cables
Ensure the red, blue and green video cables are connected to the correct corresponding inputs on the TV. (How To)
Try another set of inputs on the TV, or hooking the Wii console up to another TV.
 

Still Not Resolved:

If the television is continues to show a black and white image when powering on the Wii console, then the problem is likely with the system and it will need to be repaired. Please call 1-800-255-3700 so that we may assist you further.

I have a apex 32-inch tv model (AT3208S), This tv was connect to a converter box, the other day electric power went out in our area for about 8 mins or less, once the power was back on the tv screen was...


OK, I have one of these TVs, and here's a thought: There's nothing wrong with the TV nor with the cable converter box. Please bear with me. Since I don't know how much you may know about TVs in general and this one in particular, I'm going to assume you know nothing and go from there.

This TV has several different "inputs", which are ways a signal can be transferred from its source to the TV, where it "outputs" the video image. I believe this particular TV has 5 different inputs: In descending order of the quality of the video signal, there're one S-video input (a 4-pin video connector plus red & white audio), three composite video inputs (3 connectors each: yellow video and red/white audio--audio connectors are the same for both s-video and composite), and one coax connector (a single large screw-on connector with a little wire sticking up through the center of it) for a total of five different inputs.

The problem with these Apex TVs is that they always default to the Antenna/coax input first when they are restarted. Most people use the TV to display an input signal (like the cable box or a DVD player) connected either to the S-video or to one of the 3 composite video inputs, not to the coax input, which just displays the channel numbers from 1-125 when it's set to do that (hit the "display" button on your remote to toggle showing the channel numbers for the coax input). If there's no signal coming into the coax input, the screen with appear blue. (If it's blue, it simply means it's not getting a signal via the input to which the TV is currently set. You can turn off the blue screen in the menu settings, but then you'll just get a blank screen. It's probably better just to leave the screen blue; at least you can tell the TV's actually trying to display something that way.)

You have to manually select the proper input by pressing the "video" button either on the remote (lower right corner) or the "video" button directly on the TV (hidden control panel under the middle of the margin around the bottom of the TV screen. You'll have to press on the door, and the whole control panel rolls open to reveal another set of composite inputs and some buttons. The video button is the one farthest to the left.)

Anyhow, by pressing the video buttons, you'll cycle through the various inputs. Assuming your cable converter box is functioning properly, powered on, receiving a signal from the cable company, and connected to the TV via a(n) appropriate wire(s) connected correctly, you should see the output from the cable box on the screen when you cycle through to display the proper video input.

Another possibility: the power outage fried the input to which your cable box was connected on the back of the TV. If that's the case, your cable box would probably also have sustained damage. You can check to see if the various video inputs on the TV are working by connecting different source inputs (like a BluRay/DVD/VCR player, video game console, video camera, etc.) to one of the other inputs and see if you get a picture when the TV is set to the appropriate inputs. (Remember, the "video" button is what selects/changes/cycles through the various video inputs.) One of the sets of inputs went bad on my TV. I just use the other ones.

RCA HD52LP: Composite video inputs don't work


RCA Authorized service tech looked at it. He determined that the DM Module need to be replaced. The part alone costs $550 + labor. Since the HDMI and component video inputs seem to work, he suggested buying a VCR DVD combo with HDMI output which would be far less than repairing the tv itself. I'n researching the possibility of purchasing the part myself.

check the cords for open.if not, try to wiggle just a little the cords while you insert it, if the screen flicker and shows video signal, you'll need a tech to resolder the jacks.

Auto sensor finding wrong inputs, cant find good component signal


as any new technology TV as yours. your tv has a microcomputer (kind of mother board) that is not detecting your video inputs or any information to control. The initial set up cannot finish and there it go the answer: you have a blue screen or green with the bars (of course this is another area but still related with the control of video that it is another funtion af the main board). So the outside of the tv is ok now because you made many actions directed to troubleshoot conections, and there are fine, but the problem isn't there this problem is at the board level of the tv. technician is needed.

I just got a Vizio 37" TV from Walmart.When I turn it on, I get a blue screen that says No Signal. Help.I have Dish Network. What am I doing wrong?


Check that the connection where the dish box is connected to the TV is the selected input on your TV.

You should have either a component connection (5 cables) or HDMI (1 cable) connecting the dish box to your TV. The VX37 has two component inputs and two HDMI inputs (if I remember correctly). Use the INPUT button on your remote to select the correct input.

Once you confirm this and still have problems, post a response and I will follow-up.

All inputs work except for the component videos.


When your tv shows a blue screen it not getting a signal!! In your mit's you have to go into the customer menu and turn on the input/device. The device control is on the remote, click over to input and activate (enter). Also, look into owners manual, the customer service at mit's will step you through it if you wish. Note: put cables into comp 1 (eg), make sure colored cables are correctly inserted, and audio. (red, blue, green) red/white; audio.

No Picture from Component Input #1 or #2 but do have audio via Surrond Sound


Simplest thing would be that your component cables are not HU'd correctly. Having them reversed would do this.

Component Video inputs do not work


I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
