It depends on your television set but there are two common ways to do it. One way is through the menu function on your television. The other is by pressing the Channel down button on your television or remote control and the option will appear.

SOURCE: Strange message display when switched on.

The "TV ONP" message is happening because the DVD recorder is waiting for you to complete the "initial installation" on the TV (where you will select what language you want to use and a few other basic settings).

Provided that your DVD recorder is hooked up to your TV properly, you should turn on your TV and see the "initial setup" screen for the dvd recorder. Use your DVD recorder's remote control for this screen.

See page "30" in the manual that was posted for instructions on going through these screens. Note, though, that page "30" in the manual, is actually page 44 on the pdf file.

To summarize what the manual says, it basically says:
- Use the remote, pointed properly at the dvd recorder. Use the four-way pad and the "OK" button to navigate the menu.
- pick your menu language from the menu shown onscreen
- now pick your "audio language" from the menu
- now pick your "subtitle language"
- then pick your "tv shape" (e.g. widescreen or normal)
- connect your cable tv or satellite to the dvd recorder and press ok
- wait as the dvd recorder automatically programs in the available channels
- once done, "Auto ch. search complete" will appear on the screen.
- press the "SYSTEM-MENU" button on the remote to remove the menu and begin normal operation

You're done!

The recorder will loop through all the channels on your cable tv and "autoprogram" the working ones into it, so part of the instructions that you read on the manual will talk about setting that up. If you have a digital or proprietary cablebox that doesn't use the traditional TV channels (e.g. the tv is supposed to just be on channel 3 all the time), then the dvd recorder will only find that one channel, which is fine.

Check your input cabling and connectors and make sure you have a good input signal. Put another tv on this same input cable and see what happens. Keever

Look for loose contacts in power outlet, input RC cables or such other devices, connect a different input device and see. Switch off TV manually, switch off power outlet, remove plug and cool it off for 48 hours. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

Why does my emerson tv stay on standbye mode


Do you mean the power switch does not shut it off, or do you mean it does not show the signal you want it to show?

I can't help you over it not turning off, but if you are not seeing the signal, it may be because the TV has various alternate inputs, and has to be switched between which one you want to show, such as:

2 x HDMI input ( 19 pin HDMI Type A ) - rear
1 x VGA input ( 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) ) - rear
2 x S-Video input ( 4 pin mini-DIN ) - rear
1 x audio line-in ( mini-phone stereo 3.5 mm ) - rear
5 x audio line-in ( RCA phono x 2 ) - rear
2 x component video input ( RCA phono x 3 ) - rear
2 x composite video input ( RCA phono ) - rear

Try using the on screen menu to bring up a choice over which input to show.
Switch it to the one you have connected to it.

I turn on my telly and it just keeps saying no input signal detected


Sounds as if your telly is switched out to Computer Input screen, that is a message to tell you that it does not detect your computer. You need to switch it back to TV

White screen with dish network


This is an ancient message so you have probably long since found your problem.
There may be additional input settings to be made since it sounds like the set isn't seeing any input. If you are using the cable input on both the receiver and TV, you will have to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 to see the output of the Dish receiver.
There are three common ways to connect; via the familiar cable in/outputs, S-video with a separate audio cable, and possibly DVI. The TV's input may not search for and find the right input since many sets have a setting via their menu to force the set to look at a specific input.
It helps to have both the Dish manual and the set's manual side-by-side.

Westinghouse ltv-19w6 source won't change


Have you tried to click the source button on the tv? It is the second button from the bottom on the right hand side of the screen.

I doubt your tv/monitor is turning off, it just isn't getting any input. D-Sub is the "pc monitor part".

Try clicking that button, give it sec, the hit it again. It will go through all of it inputs. If TV is what you are trying to find, it is directly after the Video input (green letters, top right hand side of the screen.) Keep hitting the button until TV shows up.

Good Luck!

Akai model pdp4249g


Hello drifter,The design of the tv enables the auto search to detect any input signal you have selected. It could be TV (off air, video signals etc) so just switch on whatever inputs to the akai plasma befote you switch the Akai plasma on and let it do the work for you. just relax and watch the tv. recap 1. switch on the input eg video deck, DVD, VCD, or satellite dish. 2. switch on your AKAI PLASMA and 3. wait for the akai to search for your input signals. TRy this simple procedure and if it doesnt work just post back the message. The DON
