My 36" Flat-screen CRT Philips TV turns itself off
Whenever I change the "source" input to AV1 or AV2, the TV turns itself off. It was working just fine at first, but now it just switches off every time that I try to change over to the DVD player. When it shuts off, the light blinks red twice. Any thoughts?
Re: My 36" Flat-screen CRT Philips TV turns itself off
I'm getting the exact same thing with a 26" model. First I found AV2 started carrying AV1's input so we put a switch in. Then it starts to shut off with the twice blinking light after viewing the scart input for a while. I'm currently trying feeding it scart set to composite rather than RGB to see if it'll stay on. One other thing - I just got a oneforall remote. I don't suppose you did - in case that is triggering something?
People are reporting a fault with the "painter" chip which is terminal usually. But that seems to manifest as the tv switching to scart input spontaneously. I haven't seen that.
Hope you get somewhere - I'll let you know if I find anything.

av 1 is the source input for the tv
there should be av 2, 3 4 etc and each one isa for a different input item
for example av1 is for the tv -aerial , av2 may be dvd input , av3 may be x box, av4 home theater
how to get rid of it . click on exit or ok
could you possibly maybe changed the input(source) selection to that of an unused device , If so most modern tvs will turn themselves off after a few minutes of receiving no input from a disconnected input , some common source selections that come to mind are ( AV1,AV2 , Hdmi1, hdmi2, DvD , and antenna) your tv might have different names but im sure it's got a source selection
External Input Mode (for VCR features)
To receive the signal from an external input (decoder, satellite receiver, video camera, another VCR etc.), connect to the AV2 (DECODER) socket, and enter "002" with numerical key pads to appear "AV2" on the TV screen.If you use the AV1 (TV) socket, enter "001" with numerical key pads to appear "AV1" on the TV screen. If you use the front AUDIO/VIDEO input jacks, enter "003" with numerical key pads to appear "AV3" on the TV screen.
Kate what did you plug the cables into I suspect it was a grey cable with a red , white and yellow plugs. If I am correct this cable should be plugged into the AV1 or AV2 input port of your television. Try changing the input source to AV1 or AV2 Check it is plugged to AV1 on the Television and not into Conponent input !
The Input button on the original remote is needed to switch to the AV1 or AV2 connections. Unfortunately, I do not believe that the Sanyo DS27930 has an equivalent Input button on the TV. A replacement remote is available here: http://www.emtcompany.com/sanyo-ds27930-remote/rc64.html . Other universal remotes may be able to transmit the Input signal. You will need a remote that was programmed over 6 months after the TV was released with an Input or Source button. Then try all Sanyo codes until you find one that controls all of the features.
The Red, White & Yellow connectors are your composite inputs usually classed as AV3 or component. The AV1 input is a Scart connection, if you have a scart cable, connect this as your AV source & the TV will switch from AV to component.
At least a couple of possibilities, check the yellow video cable that runs from the VCR to the TV, is it plugged into the side of the combo unit that says vcr?
Is your TV on the right source? You could have plugged the audio into say AV2 and the video into AV1, causing a mismatch. Make sure the yellow, red, and white are all plugged into one input section on the TV (AV1, AV2, Video 1, Video 2, etc).
