TV will not switch back from AV mode to TV mode

Hi there,

When I change my settings to AV in order to watch a DVD I am not able to switch back to TV mode. The remote will not work for some time and once I am able to get it switched back the channels can not be chnaged nor the sound can be regulated. the chnannel numbers race from 1 to 9999 like crazy, and the word componont switches automativalle for Component 1 to component 2. I have no way of manupulating anythging.It is like the remote no longer works. After a while it kind of jumps back in gear and everything works again. This is not normal and I am hesitant to try and watch any movies afraid I can not get it switched back to TV mode. Any sugestions? (yes, I tried new batteries in the remote and while watching regulat TV I have no problems)

Sincerely,

Alida

Plug your cables from the DVD player into the back of your TV, into AV in, then set your TV to AV. Or use HDMI and do the same ,plug into DVD player TV then set TV to HDMI. On your remote it should say Mode or something similar.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Hi,

Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

Regards,
BElectric

I'm pretty sure that I have the Zentih model ZEN425 universal remote I have successfully programmed it to my tv but I am unsure how to switch the tv to Game mode


Hi

The game channel on your TV is the same as the AV channel (the channel you use to watch movies from your dvd player or home theater systems)

As long as the AV cords of the game is properly connected just switch to AV and you are good to go..

Im trying to set up my tv, it was given to me as a gift, my uncle was using it it works i can change the channels but when i try to work my dvd player with it, only the audio comes on the screen stays...


Hi,
Please few things...
1- Make sure audio and video wires are hooked correctly in AV input of tv and you selected that AV input in tv with its remote.
2- Also check your dvd has not been set on progressive mode if you hook dvd player through yellow-red-white wires with tv.
3- if dvd player is set on progressive mode, then hook it with tv by component video input, red-green-blue for video and red-white for audio.
Hope this info will solve your problem.
Thanks.

No signal won't record


Hello.

1. The button on your remote or TV that you switch channel over to for watching DVD usally got 3 different modes, AV, Comosite and RGB, Have you tried to switch inbetween these modes by pressing the same button several times to switch inbetween the modes ?

2. If its connected to the TV via a scart cable make sure the connectors are fitted all the way into the socket on both TV and DVD. These connectors can be hard to get all the way in sometimes.
.
3. Some DVD Players have internal settings for the output mode if you go into the menu and settings on the DVD.
Make a note on what it was set to before changing

Hope this will help you with your problem.

Hook up vcr


Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.
