After a friend touched it (don't know what he did), TV stays on 1 channel (Global). It is connected to cable but, whatever channel the tv is tuned to, it is always the same channel appearing on screen. Remote control doesn't work anymore (except for sound) and controls on TV itself seem to work, but without effect. Could someone help ?
P.S. Is there a way to find the user manual ?

If you have a cable box, the TV is supposed to be "stuck on one channel". Probably channel 3. If it is connected to the cable box with the round cable that screws on. If it is connected to any of the other ports, they don't change; the cable box selects which channel, (what picture) goes in that port.
Just make sure that the source/ input is the same as the input that you are using.
If you didn't change anything other than the cables, just connect your TV the way it was, and turn your cable box on and whatever channel number that your cable box has on it will be the what you are watching on the TV.
- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio
- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)
So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.
Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).
Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.
This should make the Xbox work.
When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.
If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner
There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used? Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=745952
You can replace the connector or if you have a cable box with audio and video outputs on it---connect them into one of the sets of jacks on the back of the set--switch to that input and change channels with the box----you can also do the same thing with a VCR--hook the cable into it and use its video and audio output jacks to connect to the video and audio input on the back of the TV.
In this case (the VCR does not have to work except as a tuner) you will go to whatever input you connect to and use the VCR to change channels.
These are a little less easy to use but costs you nothing---I am here to help, if you have any questions or need help let me know.
1) Connect the cable box antenna output (may be labeled "out to TV", "antenna out", "catv out" or even something else, but the key is it will say "out") to the VCR's antenna input. From the VCR's antenna output (out to tv, etc.) you connect to the TV's antenna input. For these connections you use RF cables, the kind with something called F-connectors on the ends. (These cables are available with screw-on or push-on type plugs. Use the screw-on type which makes a more reliable connection.) Set your VCR and TV both on the cable box output channel. This will be either 3 or 4, depending on how the box is set up. With this setup you can record whatever program is coming from the box by having the VCR record on the box output channel. Unfortunately, you can't record shows that are on different cable channels unless you'll be there to change channels on the box. (There are some VCRs that can control a cable box to switch channels, but I don't believe your model does.) You also can't watch one channel while recording a different one.
2) (This won't work if your TV doesn't have a video input available.) Connect the cable box to the VCR and the VCR to the TV with audio/video cables. These are the ones with RCA plugs, color-coded red and white for right and left channel sound and yellow for video. Set the VCR to line input and the TV to the input you have the VCR connected to. This connection setup gives a better picture and sound quality that the RF connection described above. You still have the same restrictions on recording, though.
Sounds a little confusing, I know. Just remember that inputs connect to outputs and you'll be set up in no time.
Hi, where you plug the dvd cables into the tv determines where the picture will be seen; Example, if you plug the dvd players yellow, red & white cable into the tv`s "input 1" then you go to the tv`s "input" or "tv/video" button and push those buttons to get "input 1" to come up on the screen and you`ll see the picture and hear the audio, it`s kinda like a file folder in your computer, you`ve got to find the file then open it to see the contents. If your tv is on channel 3 or 5 or whatever you won`t see the picture because the picture is in video not a tv channel
