Question about Televison & Video

Television "locked" I was watching television last night and changed channels. all of a sudden, the screen went blank and it said locked at the bottom. I do not have the remote that came with the television, however, i use a universal remote that has always worked. I cannot get it to unlock. ( I don't even know how it locked, since i do not have the remote with the "lock" bottom on it.

    We had the same problem, you do need the remote control. Select the CH-List button and press the green button to unlock each channel that has the to toggle off the lock symbol. Then press Exit to save the settings

This is usually a child lock feature and/or a function to keep people from changing your tv settings when company is over. The only way to get it out is to get the original remote and the manual for the set (would help if we knew the model and make) to unlock it. Sometimes the universal remotes will lock them as i think this is the issue here.

VX37L Screen Suddenly Went Blank, Now No Image, Sound Only on Cable Input, VIZIO Logo Lights Up


Hello,
turn on the set, grab a bright flash light and dim the lights in the room. Shine the flash light on the screen, if you see a faint picture on the screen, you are dealing with a backlight problem. There are several things that can cause this. One, a bad backlight inverter, two, faulty 24vdc power supply, three, bad main board, or a bad faulty backlamp.

We have a Samsung PS50Q91HDX Plasma Tv which is not quite 3yrs old. Ever since we have had it, it turns itself on & off at random but this is not the main problem. Last night we were watching a show...


This is weird. I also have a plasma 50" model PS5Q91HDX and on the 5/02/11 the screen went blank when my friends daughter was watching a Wiggles DVD. The image kept coming back, flashing a scene or two before going black again. But the sound is perfect.

I wonder what is going on? Is anyone else having trouble with their 3-4 year old Samsung 50" TVs???

Was watching tv( Toshiba Regza)and the screen went blank.


I have the same television and ocasionally the sound shuts-off, but I still have a picture.
What type of cable system do you have? What kind of converter box? I am trying to find out if it is the TV or converter box. I change the channel a couple of times and the sound usually comes back.

LG 42LC7D TV does not want to chg channels after 5 min of use


There are some inductors that are out of spec. LG's original SB said to replace some of these with a jumper, but it only lasted a couple months.

You need to have the Total Main Assy replaced.
