I just received a Coby TFTV992 9" portable TV. I'm trying to tune the TV channels without success.

1st click the "mode" button on the TV or remote then use the vol. up and down buttons to scroll around until you get to DTV mode then press "enter" on the remote you should get a message "please run channel auto scan" . click "Menu" on the remote the "Picture" screen will come up, keep clicking the vol. up button to scroll past "Audio" then "Setup" then to "Channel" then use the CH up or down buttons to scroll to "Air" click OK , then use the CH down button to scroll to "Scan all channels" then click the vol. up button. it then should start scanning, FYI you have to be fast!

My son some how used the universal remote to set the pass word on the V-chip controls. Now I am locked out and cant get any channels.

Most RCA and GE TV sets use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The code reset is different depending on the model. Try each number until you find the one that works for you.
  1. Hold down the MENU button on the remote and VOLUME DOWN button on the TV it's self at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  2. Hold down the 0 (zero) button on the remote and the VOLUME DOWN button on the TV itself at the same time for at least 4 seconds. The set won't say so, but the lock will be unlocked
  3. Hold down the MENU button on the front of the TV and the TV button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. 4- Hold down GO BACK button on the remote and MENU button on the front of the TV at the same time for at least 4 seconds.
  4. Hold down EJECT button on the front of the TV set and the MENU button on the remote at the same time for at least 4 seconds. Depending on the model, one of the methods should unlock the V-chip. Now, if desired, you can change the settings on the V-chip by going to the MENU and going to PARENTAL CONTROLS, or on some sets, going to MENU and then going to TV SETUP, then to V-CHIP SET.

How do you turn on the Backlight on the screen?

If the screen backlight is not on, first try adjusting the brightness.
Press TV/AV button on remote to select TV mode. Press the MENU button on the remote. Using the arrow keys (navigation buttons), choose picture mode and adjust the brightness and contrast.
If your TV screen is still not lighting up in a dim room, then the backlight is broken.
You have 90 days labor and 1 year parts from date of purchase.

Sound is operating correctly ..However, there isn't any video , screen has an extremely faint picture

Sounds like a broken backlight. That's a write-off for an old set, or a factory warranty repair (90 days labor, 1 year parts). First make sure the TV is in TV mode (press mode on the set, or TV/AV on the remote).
Once in TV mode, press MENU and use the navigation buttons (arrows and ENTER) to choose the set to factory default mode.
Also make sure you have a working signal by trying another TV on the antenna or cable coaxial wire.
You can also try adjusting the brightness from the MENU.
If these steps do not work, call the Haier hotline listed in the manual: 1-877-337-3639

Can not get picture to flip

Read the setup manual more closely, the answer was very vague and a person has to pay close attention to the pictures. Found one picture that showed the menu with "flip" displayed on it.

How do i hook up my 16-454 to my verizon fios cable?

I am not sure what a FIOS use, but I was able to split my cable connection and was connect my regular TV AND portable tv with the cable.

Look at your fios set up box, behind the box, there should be something that would say "TO TV" or "VIDEO OUT" or "TO TV/VCR"

Usually, the cable coming out from there goes to your regular TV. So instead of your regular TV, you can connect that with your portable TV.

AS FOR MY CASE (Having 2 tv's),

1. I removed the cable that is connected to the wall (RF IN or From WALL or CABLE IN).
2. I hooked that end to the "IN" part of a 3 way splitter
3. I bought a short cable and connected one end to the Cable Box and the other end to the OUT of the splitter
4. I bought a longer cable and connected one end to the portable TV and the other end to the OUT of the splitter.

5. Then I turned on the TV and pressed MENU
6. I clicked the right arrow until I see ANTENNA. I pressed the down button to choose CATV instead of AIR.
7, I did auto scanning.
My portable TV now has the basic channel while the big TV (since it is connected to the cable box) has the added digital channels. Nevertheless, it is great to have both so when I want to sleep, my hubby can just use the small tv

In setup mode will not move to time zone set

I had the same problem with mine. Eventually, after going through the setup menu several times, I was able to get it to step down to Time Zone and DST. Don't know exactly what happened!

Tv is on but wont play

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.
Give the brand name and the model number..

hope this may help;

My Screen Said "Are You Sure" and "Please Wait" and now, instead of "AV", i have "AV1" and "AV2" and my tv wont show picture from the dvd player OR vcr

You will need to go back into the menu and see what ia available in the video input mode. You may have switched the type of input you can use such as default or componts ect. If you have an isntruction manual, look in there or call the manufacturer, should also be in the instruction or user manual. Good Luck
