Sometimes unplugging it from the wall for a few minutes or even overnight can fix weird issues like this.

also, there is a small chance that a new channel scan thru the menu system might refresh the channel memory and clear it up.

this series of TV's are prone to a lot of problems tho, so it will likely soon be time to start shopping around.

I have a Sony KV-27XBR55 TV, that wont display signal (Video nor sound) it only displays 0 0000 on the Channel input


It sounds like you are in the service menu---aside from the zeros what if anything else can be seen?

The set does have (all Sony sets do) a reset done only with the original Sony remote.

You have to enter its service mode to rectify this problem. Just contact any expereinced tech, as this is a very risky and skilled work. The tech know, what to do.

How do we scan/program in local tv channels. We bought an external antenna, but get no picture. Typically, there is a protocol for scanning channels into the set. Model is Sansui TVS2746B, and the set was...


Okay, does this tv have a built in DIGITAL tuner? Most tv's only have an analog tuner. You can tell the difference while you are changing the channels. If the channel indicates 2.1 or 2.2 and so forth, it is on a digital channel mode. If you change the channel and it indicated 2, 3, 4, etc. it is analog. If it has digital capability change the input until you see 2.1, 3.4 etc. If you cycle through all the inputs on the tv like, input 1 (TV) input 2(DVD) input 3(HDMI) and so forth and you never see the digital channel you most likely do not have a digital tuner. You will need to purchase a digital converter which will convert it to analog and you can watch it by placing you tv on analog channel 3 just like the old vcr's. Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate this solution.

I have a sanyo tv. Slightly older. Not hi-def or New


Hi:
This may be due to the possiblity that the you are on the wrong input source, If you watch HD Channels then the input source would either be componet or HDMI input. Try changing the input source of the television with the TV's remote until you see the Channels again. IF you are not watching HDTV then the television is on the wrong reception channel for the Direct TV's box. Try channel 4 or 3 or even 73.

How do i get my tv on to the av channels without a remote


The short answer is you can't. Most sets now require the remote control, which has a "source" or "input" button that you need to press. To make matters worse, a universal remote often (usually, in fact) won't have the right codes to switch inputs. There are vendors selling original replacement remotes, but they can be pretty costly.

The longer answer is that on a few TVs you might find a source selection through the on-screen menus. If your set has front panel menu control. Some do, but often the functions are very limited. On a few models of RCA sets you could switch to AV inputs using special channel numbers (00, 98 or 99) but these were older models made when cable systems had fewer channels.

Without knowing your brand and model I can't tell you more. But it's almost certain you'll need a remote. Hopefully you can find a universal remote that will work for you.

Need an Input to hook up Dish network/xbox 360


Sometimes its tricky with those buttons on the front but with most tv's you can get to the menu and change inputs.
One you figure that out you will want to go back in and add that input as a channel in the add/remove channel section then you will be able to get to that input by just changing the channel down below 2
( another way to do this would be to run the auto program with the devices on and see if it adds them that way)

Tobshiba tv stays in one channel.


You might need to go into the menu options and set the input from cable to air or vice a verse. The tv in my kids room is like that if it's set to cable with no input at the cable jack then it only gets one channel even after you try to add channels.

Is there an input select?


I can view channels but cannot view a DVD from the TV/DVD Disney Princess Combo. Only see static on the screen with no sound. I wonder if I need to change the input select to view a movie but cannot find a button on the TV or remote control. I have a 6 button remote which I am sure operates the DVD and another remote with 39 buttons I thought would operate the player as well as the TV. However, so far only the player functions from it. The buttons only have small pictures without words which sometimes leaves some question about purpose. This is a second hand unit. I do not have a manual. It did play movies at first. I think the trouble may have started when I programed cable channels. Any help will be greatly appreciated

No channels?


Try going into the setup menu and make sure the ANT input is set to cable. Then look for Auto Program or Channel Setup and let it scan and find all the channels it can receive. After it's done you should be able to go up and down through the channels.
