How do I escape from an input screen back to watching satellite tv? Screen reads first please connect all signals and antennas to jacks and terminals on the back of the tv then press the channel up key...

Looks like your set is not receiving the signal from the sat. receiver. Make sure that the audio/video cable is in good shape and connected correctly, then select the correct input on your tv. If that doesn`t work try to connect a dvd or vcr on the same cable, if that is still no go then you may have a bad audio/video cable or there is a problem with your tv set. If it does work(dvd/vcr) then you`ll have to check your satellite receiver. Hope this help. Good luck

When tv is turned on with cable channels picture is snowy. when dvd or vhs tape played through tv the picture is snowy

Try using the video inputs
What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

Sony KP-53XBR45 rear projection TV: Coax input Selector Antena part on rear has the AUX input 'male' connector but the TV/Cable 'male' connection end is missing. Is there a way to use the AUX or any other...

You can replace the connector or if you have a cable box with audio and video outputs on it---connect them into one of the sets of jacks on the back of the set--switch to that input and change channels with the box----you can also do the same thing with a VCR--hook the cable into it and use its video and audio output jacks to connect to the video and audio input on the back of the TV.

In this case (the VCR does not have to work except as a tuner) you will go to whatever input you connect to and use the VCR to change channels.

These are a little less easy to use but costs you nothing---I am here to help, if you have any questions or need help let me know.

I want to hook a system

you will only be able to get digital surround( dolby digital ) from your dvd player( by the coax or optical digital connections ) , the rest will only be in virtual surround

from the dtv box plug the yellow video jack(RCA) into the vcr video input , then plug the audio jack or jacks into the audio input on the vcr. from the vcr hook the audio out to the audio in on the reciever( tv/vcr/sat... input ) , then also connect RF out from the VCR to RF in on the TV .
for the dvd player hook the "s-video out" to the "s-video in" on the tv , then the audio L and R on same s-video input , then send the audio out connection on tv to L and R input on reciever dvd L and R input , then you will need to connect the optical from the dvd player to the reciever or coax connections for the dolby digital on the reciever to work

I have a rca rear projection and it doesnt have a rear screw on piece to connect the antenna one day it just turned off i had the antenna cord plugged direct

Good Day, pptramos;
If you have a cable box, sat box or vcr use the AV(audio/video) inputs instead of the RF (antenna) input.
Good Luck, big IRISH. ....PS the AV inputs are color coded, yellow (video), red and white (audio).

How do I connect the VCR & DVD when I have a Comcast box

Good Day,

Not knowing what type of TV you own, let's try this:

1. Hook your Audio from your TV to your amp; TV's audio output to an amp input.(eg; video one)
2. Hook vcr/dvd/c box to inputs to your TV.(eg; vcr to video 1 on tv, dvd to tv's video 2)

Let me ask you how many inputs does your tv have?
Is tv, box&dvd HD?? Iwill help but give me more information. Thanks

Just bought TV and connected with red,white, yellow and s-video connections. screen says NO SIGNAL. I have a satellite dish and dvd/vcr. the dvd/vcr image shows up on tv screen.

* Possible Problem *
It's not clear how you have each of the components connected to the TV, but you do mention that you used the "yellow" and s-video connections. Those are both video connections. The yellow is a "composite video" connection. Many TVs won't accept signals from both the yellow and the s-video connections at the same time. Usually one will override the other.

* Possible Solution *
Make sure the satellite dish is on and (hopefully) on a valid channel. Try disconnecting the s-video and checking the screen. If it didn't work, remove the yellow connection and replace the s-video cable. Check again.

If the problem persists, please explain how the TV, dish and the dvd/vcr devices are connected to each other (audio cables not relevant).

I have a Magnovox tv/vcr combo that I am trying to use the antenna on but it will only let me switch back and forth between Aux or channel 3. I do not have the remote. Is that my problem? Will a universal...

Yes a universal control should solve your problem but I would try to connect my tv to my vcr or dvd and my antenna to my vcr or dvd as well then change your channels thru your vcr or dvd!
