Games destroy tvs?

I've only had this tv for a short time, about 2 years, and, at first, my parents wouldn't let me play games on the tv. Eventually, they let me, and a short time after I started playing games on it, the tv wouldn't turn on. The red standby light would blink, but nothing would happen. So we took the tv to a television repair place, and they replaced the circuit board, and it worked fine again. Now, a second time, only about 1 month after we repaired it, the same problem occurs again. My parents are convinced that my video game console broke it somehow. Is this possible? How is this so?

This solution is provided by one of our experts premtech

Child Lock

--Should have original remote. Press and hold the power button for 6 to 10 seconds

Combo Model T25208, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, simultaneously press VOLUME down on the TV/VCR front panel and the 0 number button on the remote for a few seconds. This resets the password and you can enter a new one.

Combo Model 13TVR62, V-Chip Forgotten Password
If you forget your password, press STOP/EJECT on the TV/VCR front panel and MENU on the remote simultaneously. This resets the password, but not the limits you’ve set.
Televisions with Parental Lock Feature

If you forgot your password for this feature, press the following buttons on the remote, one at a time. (Note: You must be in the password entry screen) Press, Mute, Display,Clear and Reset, this unlocks parental controls and you can now re-enter a new password.
Press and hold Menu on the TV AND volume down on the remote for 3 seconds. Nothing will appear on the screen, and the Parental Controls will unlock, and you can re-enter a new password with the LOCK PARENTAL CONTROLS

Channels that have been locked can be viewed only when the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to OFF. This can only be done with the remote control-it can not be changed with the buttons on the front of the TV.

Therefore, after you turn on PARENTAL CTRL, you simply hide the remote control so that your children can not watch the locked channels. The locked-out channels will remain unviewable even if the TV is unplugged or the channels are autoprogrammed again. The only way to view locked channels is to use the supplied remote control to set the PARENTAL CTRL function to OFF.

The PARENTAL CTRL and the CHAN CTRL functions work hand-in-hand. The instructions below will first tell you how to turn parental control on or off with the PARENTAL CTRL function and then how to lock desired channels with the CHAN CTRL function.
1. Repeatedly press MENU to select SETUP MENU, and then press + or - to display setup functions. Repeatedly press MENU to select the PARENTAL CTRL function. . When this function is set to ON, PARENTAL CTRL is activated and any channels you locked with the CHAN CTRL function will not be viewable. . When this function is set to OFF, PARENTAL CTRL is deactivated and all channels are viewable.

2. To lock channels, press the MENU button to select the CHAN CTRL function. Select a channel you want to lock by pressing CHANNEL up or down. Then press +. The CHAN CTRL setting will change from NORMAL to LOCKED when that channel is locked. To return the channel to NORMAL, press the - button. Repeat step 2 for each channel you want to lock. If the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON while you are locking out channels, each channel will go blank as you lock it. When the PARENTAL CTRL function is set to ON and a channel which has been locked out is tuned, the TV will display the words PARENTAL CONTROL to let your kids know you have locked it.

If the front panel function buttons don't work, (menu, ch up/dn etc.) but the functions work normal with the remote, enter the "Channel" menu with the remote and turn "Parental Control" off.

In the event you have forgotten your password, perform the following procedure:
Press and hold for 3 seconds the TV button on the remote while pressing the menu button on the TV.
This procedure will turn off the parental lock and erase the previous password .

Another Possibility To Try For Various Models: If TV's in the Parental mode and askes for a password that's forgotten, Press menu on the TV, select Parental Lock #4 on menu, then with the remote press Mute, Display, Clear, and Reset buttons in sequence.

TX808 Chassis
If Parental Controls have been set and you don't know the password, do this:
Press and hold the volume down and the channel up buttons at the same time for 5 seconds.
Now you can reset the password to 0000, and using that password you can now access the V-Chip menus.

TV's (Made by Daewoo or possibly Apex, ie. GE model 24GP653)
The factory default pass code of 6688 is also the override code, in case the owner forgets their pass code. If that doesn't work, another place in the owners manual says to push Function and Mute on the remote at the same time. Function is the top right button.

How do I view my PS2 video on my Sylvania W4913TA 13" TV?

Hi Casey.
To view your PS2 through the Tv you will need the AV lead from ps2 with the Yellow cord plugged into the Yellow RCA input on the front of the TV. This is called a "Composite" video signal and the AV lead can be bought easily from places like eBay and Amazon if you have not already got one. Normally on the TV Casey if you choose "Aux" it should display the channel that you inserted the lead to. Aux being short for "Auxiliary".

I presume you are in the USA Casey.
If so the best way to view PS2 on a Tube CRT would be either Scart (RGB) or Component video. RGB TVs are not normally sold in the US but some tvs have them. Component video input should be readily available in USA tvs and this will give you a much better picture and is the highest video quality the PS2 can do. A few years back Samsung made a great CRT tv with component video and also scart and it could also do HD gaming.

If you cannot get any of these TVs and have to use the new Sylvania its cool. The yellow video plug inserted into the front of the tv and I have checked on line for the instruction manual and you will have to press " Game" on the remote control which is the same as pressing "AUX" input.

I think this button has to pressed and at the same time it sets the mode at which you will be viewing the PS2.
In game mode the contrast and brightness are normally tweaked to give the best results.

I hope my answer helped you out Casey and good luck with your new TV :)

Power died. TV was running then there was a short hiss followed by a pop and the tv died. Is it just a power unit problem. ie like replacing a computer CPU when it dies.

No,more complicated than that.The whole 2 ICS set of chips,must be replaced,near the FBT-the Flyback transformer,that the big block of plastic with a red wire with a cap hook into the CRT-(tv tube).The out wall of the FBT-the flyback transformer the "H" horizontal transistor output probally dead too.Require replacing too.Now analongue tvs are defective,components parts are not much available anymore,if the analogue tvs are more than five years old.Time to upgraded to a HD tvs.

How to go to video mode to play game?

some tvs let you just turn it to channel 0 as the video channel. But the remote on most tvs have a button, for example: an input button , a tv/video button. But if not then you have to change it by going to the menu. It will tell you exactly what you need to know in the t.v manuel Hope this helps!!

I have a Toshiba 27AF43 27 inch television that no longer powers on at all. We had a lightning strike right next to our house and it tripped our breaker box. When I flipped it back on all other electronics...

Lightening does a LOT of damage, I wouldn`t have it repaired and I`d contact my house insurance immediately. I`ve repaired lightening damaged sets before only to find that the set only lasts a short period before different fault appears and once you make a claim on the insurance for a repair, they won`t pay out again for another repair on the same set. The problem you`ve got is when the lightening hit the power line, it sent a transient or high voltage pulse through your power lines. The computer and a lot of the other circuits in your set only run at about 5 volts. If your TV power is normally 240 volts like ours is and the transient pulse rises 1,000%, (In practice a lot higher than this) in effect the power lines in your home will have risen momentarily to 2,640 volts. This means that the other voltages in the set will have risen proportionally with the input voltage meaning that the 5 volt lines will have risen to 55 volts which would either destroy the circuits on that line or as you will find out later if you have the set repaired, weaken the circuits which may survive for a short period until you`re sat down watching your favorite TV program and one of these components decide to give up. Take my advice and claim for a replacement set, You`ve been warned. Ian

Black box appears on tv screen

Check to see that you don't have any channel locks or parental parental permission measures deployed. If so remove them, this includes V-Chip, and Parental lock out on the remote, and check your TVs menu items. What channel are being affected by this problem? Give channel number and channel type.

Thank you,
