What is wrong with my TV's Ypbpr input???


is this the only input where the TV does this? what happens when you disconnect this source? May be your source.

If the TV does this no matter what input, perhaps you have some leaky caps on the power supply PCB,. These can usually be detected by their bulging tops & usually self replaced (if you have the wherewithall) at a cost of less than $10.00

How do you get the picture in picture to work? What two sources can you use, a cable box and what?


The Picture in Picture (PIP) on VIZIO televisions works on multiple input sources. This means you have to have signal or a device connected to more than one input on the television and have both inputs selected to display the information going to them. Here is an example. Let's say you have an HD cable box connected to your television and you would like to have more than one channel displayed on the screen in order to keep an eye on both football games at the same time. With one device connected that's not going to work out the way our TV functions. What you want to do is get a coaxial splitter and two extra coaxial cables; these can be found anywhere home theater equipment is sold. Then follow these steps.

1. Turn off both your cable box and television.

2. Take the coaxial cable that comes OUT from the wall and connects to the IN of your cable box and disconnect it.

3. Connect that cable to the IN on your coaxial splitter.

4. Connect your two extra coaxial cables to the OUTs on your coaxial splitter. We will call them cable 1 and Cable 2, just because.

5. Connect cable 1 directly to the DTV/TV input on your television.

6. Connect Cable 2 directly to the IN on your cable box, this will be the same connection you removed it from in step #2. Your HD cable box should still be connected to your television with either an HDMI cable or Component cables (Identified by their Green, Red, Blue colors for video and Red and White cables for audio.)

7. Power on both the cable box and your television. Using the INPUT button on your VIZIO remote select the input connection where your cable box is located your cable box picture should come up on the Main screen.

8. Press the PIP button on your VIZIO remote to bring up the small box in the corner. Press the PIP input button until you select the TV input and you should be ready to go. You may need to perform a channel scan with your TV tuner to locate all available channels before you do this step. In order to understand better how to perform a channel scan please check under the F.A.Q.s in the discussion area of your particular model television.

In order to change channels in the small screen use the PIP CH - and + buttons located near the bottom of the remote. You can swap picture in the Main and Sub screens using the swap button and swap which screen will sound off its audio by using the AUDIO button. You might notice an X next to some of the selections in the INPUT and PIP INPUT screens when you have PIP activated. That means that input selection is unavailable and cannot be used. For example, if you have the input TV selected on your main screen then if you press the PIP INPUT button and bring up that input menu you will see X's next to the TV and AV selections. The X's mean that when you have TV on the main screen you won't be able to use TV or AV on the small screen. Instead you would need to use any of the input selections that do not have an X attached to them.

Tv is stuck on Video 1 and the remote is missing.Won't respond to the cable remote except on and off. HELP


Try pressing tv first on your cable remote then the video/source/input button on the cable remote. If there is no button on the television itself to switch video inputs a temporary fix for now is to connect the cable box to the video 1 female parts on your television. Buy the cables to do that if you don't have a spare set lying around. You can purchase a remote for your television with the model number from http://www.replacementremotes.com or even a Sanyo remote from a thrift store should be able to allow you to switch inputs.

since you are using hdmi input, and have a direct tv reciever, you are not using the tv tuner,therefor it will not store any channels. all the channels are stored in the sat reciever. switch your input to hdmi 2 and you should see the direct tv box. dont worry about the tv stroing any channels, because it wont, all the channels from the direct tv box are in video format not rf.

It sounds like the problem is simply the input selection.

SELECTING THE INPUT SOURCE

There are two ways to select the video input source.

Using the Individual Input Keys

I have a apex 32-inch tv model (AT3208S), This tv was connect to a converter box, the other day electric power went out in our area for about 8 mins or less, once the power was back on the tv screen was...


OK, I have one of these TVs, and here's a thought: There's nothing wrong with the TV nor with the cable converter box. Please bear with me. Since I don't know how much you may know about TVs in general and this one in particular, I'm going to assume you know nothing and go from there.

This TV has several different "inputs", which are ways a signal can be transferred from its source to the TV, where it "outputs" the video image. I believe this particular TV has 5 different inputs: In descending order of the quality of the video signal, there're one S-video input (a 4-pin video connector plus red & white audio), three composite video inputs (3 connectors each: yellow video and red/white audio--audio connectors are the same for both s-video and composite), and one coax connector (a single large screw-on connector with a little wire sticking up through the center of it) for a total of five different inputs.

The problem with these Apex TVs is that they always default to the Antenna/coax input first when they are restarted. Most people use the TV to display an input signal (like the cable box or a DVD player) connected either to the S-video or to one of the 3 composite video inputs, not to the coax input, which just displays the channel numbers from 1-125 when it's set to do that (hit the "display" button on your remote to toggle showing the channel numbers for the coax input). If there's no signal coming into the coax input, the screen with appear blue. (If it's blue, it simply means it's not getting a signal via the input to which the TV is currently set. You can turn off the blue screen in the menu settings, but then you'll just get a blank screen. It's probably better just to leave the screen blue; at least you can tell the TV's actually trying to display something that way.)

You have to manually select the proper input by pressing the "video" button either on the remote (lower right corner) or the "video" button directly on the TV (hidden control panel under the middle of the margin around the bottom of the TV screen. You'll have to press on the door, and the whole control panel rolls open to reveal another set of composite inputs and some buttons. The video button is the one farthest to the left.)

Anyhow, by pressing the video buttons, you'll cycle through the various inputs. Assuming your cable converter box is functioning properly, powered on, receiving a signal from the cable company, and connected to the TV via a(n) appropriate wire(s) connected correctly, you should see the output from the cable box on the screen when you cycle through to display the proper video input.

Another possibility: the power outage fried the input to which your cable box was connected on the back of the TV. If that's the case, your cable box would probably also have sustained damage. You can check to see if the various video inputs on the TV are working by connecting different source inputs (like a BluRay/DVD/VCR player, video game console, video camera, etc.) to one of the other inputs and see if you get a picture when the TV is set to the appropriate inputs. (Remember, the "video" button is what selects/changes/cycles through the various video inputs.) One of the sets of inputs went bad on my TV. I just use the other ones.

I can only get channels 600 through 900 which I have never see before.I cannot get regular channels or cable channels.It is not a flat panel t.v.Q1435A is the model number


Hi -

If you have a cable TV line connected directly to the TV, an antenna or a cable box connected by coaxial cable, I would suggest running the automatic channel scan (AUTO-PROGRAM) again:

1. Press the AV key on the Advent remote control repeatedly until TV is displayed in one corner of the TV screen. If you don't have the Advent remote, use the TV/AV button on the front of the TV.
2. Press the MENU key on the advent remote or the front of the TV to open the on-screen menus.
3. Use the CH+/- keys on the remote or on the front of the TV to highlight PRESET then press VOL+ to select.
4. Use the CH+/- keys on the remote or on the front of the TV to highlight ANTENNA then use the VOL+ key to select either AIR (for antenna) or CABLE.
5. Use the CH+/- keys on the remote or on the front of the TV to highlight AUTO-PROGRAM then press the VOL+ key to start the automatic channel scan.

Once the channel scan is complete, the TV should automatically return to viewing the first channel found during the scan. Do not press the MENU key during the scan or the scan will not complete.

If you are using a cable/satellite receiver and it is connected to the TV by any means other than a coaxial cable, you do not need to run the channel scan. You should simply select the correct AV input using the AV key on the remote or the TV/AV key on the front of the TV (see step 1 above).

If you have done all of the above and you are still unable to get the channels on your TV, please post back for further assistance. You can reply to me by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. Please let me know whether you are using a direct cable line, antenna or cable box, etc.

Regards,
BElectric
