    I get what your saying, but when I put a different tv on the same cable and plug it in, it works just fine. could it be a problem inside the tv? Or is there a possible simple solution that I could try before I have to go spend money to have it looked at?

Hello.

Blue screen usally means no signal.

This sounds like a cable/cord cennection problem.
If you are using a scart cable between the tv and the cable box
make sure the contacts are firmly inserted all the way,
Sometimes scart contacts are hard to get all the way in.

Howerver if you are receiving the CATV channels the sdame way as the rest of the channels, through an RF cord (antenna cable)
there could be a problem with your supplier of these channels

Best of Luck

    Im sorry to hear that the problem is beyond the "easy fix" stage.

    I gather you are using a 3 split AV cable (red, white and yellow) which only works in "Composite mode" however if you are using a scart cable you should have 2 catv modes in which it should work..Compisite mode and also RGB mode,,, have you tried both ?

    If you cant switch over to these modes on the remote aswell as on the TV direct then im afraid next step would be to have a repair man have a look at some service shop since you are right that it would be probably be the channel or input circuitry inside the TV that is broken.

    Also you can leave the question open here..someone might have a better answer for you.

    Thank you.

I have a new Emerson LC320EMX 32" TV. The suddenly stopped working right. It will not turn off. There is no picture, only colored screens. When you change the channel it just shows a different color...


Your TV is still in the factory test mode. To remove from the tech service mode try this.To exit the service mode, grab the original remote. Press the cursor left followed by the cursor right button. Now press the off button on the remote or on the TV itself. Hope this helps. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!

Same thing... suddenly will not "allow" one channel to be seen


go to tv menu, do an "autoprogram" and it will select all available channels.
You can also do an add/remove channel and manually delete the channels you know you don't have.
You can also change your tv from air to CATV (cable) On cable tv you can still get all the air channels and Fox just the numbers will be different, but you may have a better signal

Only goes up to Channel 19.


Go into the TV's setup screen and make sure its tuning mode is set for "cable" (may say "CATV"). I'm not familiar with this set so I don't know exactly what the screen will say, but there should be some reference to channel setup, TV setup, tuning band, etc. It's probably set on "AIR" now.

Normally, when set for off-air reception, the set works properly for channels 2 through 13, and 14 up don't tune properly. Since you're getting channels up to 19, there may in fact be some kind of tuner problem. If the TV is already set for cable tuning, you may have found why the former owner was freecycling it. But check that tuning mode.

Switching from TV to CATV


it sounds like the tv is already in cable mode, and that it is a older tv. some older tv's will only tune in so many channels. yours going up only to channel 69. if you have the remote for this tv, try punching in channel 73. if it doesn't tune in, then the tv will not recieve channel 73.
good luck

Check the signal type. It may be set incorrectly. Change the channel. You may be on a blank channel. Check to see if the TV is tuned to channel 3 or 4 if you are watching a videotape. Check the TV/VCR button on the VCR is in the correct mode by pressing the TV/VCR button on your VCR.
