Question about Televison & Video
My alba tv has locked on channel 15, and I cannot seem to find the problem, can anyone help please
Do a hard reset to this set and check first. Unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket and re-plug it back after 5 minutes or so. This must make it a hard reset. If this do not help you, the main system control memory IC is faulty, and have to be replaced. If you wish to get more details, check this site. Pull up older posts there.

I am afraid it sounds as though either your backlight or power inverter has gone faulty, may be worth contacting alba to see if they will honour the warrenty (unlikely but worth a go) otherwise maybe try your home insurance to see if its covered, failing either of these options, if you feel confident doing so, disassemble the tv and look for any signs of visible damage (capacitors leaking or any components looking burned or scorche, and replace. Try looking for any panel markings which will allow you to search for a price to replace the whole unit.
Unfortunately I cant give you and hard and fast cure, and it is very difficult to tell whether it is the inverter or the backlight has gone (having said that, if you are getting picture at the very beginning, it may suggest that the inverter is getting the power to the backlight ok, which may suggest its the backlight at fault.)
Hope this helps.

TV is searching for over the air channels. Select in the main menu to go from over the air to cable channels and you should be fine.
