I recently bought a TV and had it hooked up to my Direct TV Reciever. When I hooked it up and tried to watch tv the screen went completely BLUE and would not change. I tried wathcing a DVD and it worked completely fine. I hooked up the antentna and it worked completely fine, but once I tried watching Direct TV the screen went blue. Any suggestions??
Most probably your antinna is not reciving TV signals properly.Try to adjust it in a right direction at a proper height, also adjust frequency of various channel of Direct TV through menu button.

Hit the Menu button on the TV. 2. 'INPUT SECRET No.' should appear. 3. Press and hold both VOL (+) and CH DOWN (9) on the TV set simultaneously until the message 'INPUT SECRET No.' disappears. 4. The vchip settings should be disabled now and the Parental controls menu should be presented, 'disable' Status if need be.
The direct tv reciever has a coax output that will send a signal to channel 3 or 4 that any older telivision can recieve...so the answer is yes. You obvously need a direct tv reciever to watch direct tv on any telivision.
if you see the logo she has directv. tune her t.v. to channel 03 or 04 and she should have a picture,if she lives in a apt. her feed may be coming from her provider or her t.v. is hooked up to another t.v. that does have a directv receiver. if this doesn't solve your riddle get back with me as i work for direcv in the tech dept. hope this helps you...
i guess there a built in dvd player on the set and it could play most DVD format. but if you wish to use another dvd player hook up the dvd on the tv video output (DVD) to video input (TV) audio output to audio input the find the auxiliary button from either the tv or dvd
patrioticdog-I have just answered a similar problem, you can remove the back and find the flyback transformer. The big part with the round rubber plug hooked to the pix tube. there will be two controls on the flyback one for focus one for screen. turn up the screen ever so slightly,your screen will brighten up.Also if you check the main pcboard ass'y there may be a sub bright control same thing small adjustments. maybe tell the guy to give a bit off cause of repair ,good luck let me know. cooltek Feb15/08
If your cable converter box has audio/video connections on the back of it,you don't need to worry about using that RF coax connector. Just hook it up the same way your DVD is hooked to the TV input jack. Get a 3-wire cable (yellow-red-white)hook it to the same colors on the back of the cable box and hook the other end to an unused input on the back of the TV. Then select that input with your remote and watch TV.
