Re: cant get dvd to work

Hi, Do a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a couple of hours. Most current models will reset to default condition this way. If this does not correct the fault, pls post back with the brand/model/version of your unit. Good luck and kind regards.

Do i need internet for my HDTV smart tv

The smart tv provides several features and some of these will require access to internet if you are directly streaming movies and youtube. But there are some features like media player and DNLA wireless connectivity with other compatible devices like smart phones and DVD players that operate without internet. For this you will need a wi-fi or wired Lan connection from TV to your router.

You need to check whether there were changes made in the Wi-Fi setting of your TV including the password, method of protection, SSID etc. matching to your Wi-Fi router settings.

Have no picture or sound why

here is a link for your tv's manual:

1. make sure you have power

a. connect a working device such as a clock, radio, or lamp to the wall receptacle to verify power works at receptacle b. confirm power cord is firmly inserted into receptacle and to the tv. c. some appliances have a main power switch in addition to an on/off switch. confirm that if this is the case and make sure the main switch is set to on if applicable. d. check tv to be sure it is powering on. you should see a power indicator illuminate or you may see the screen illuminate and perhaps display a logo screen when it is turned on. If the set is on, operating volume and channel or other functions should display something on the screen.

2. Make sure a working device is connected to your TV and is powered on.

a.. if the set is powered on, a source must be connected to the set in order to view a picture and hear sound. you should see connectors on the back of the set for various devices and connections. If you have an antenna, connect it to the antennae connector terminal. you will need to acces the settings to do a channel scan or set up to see any channels you might receive. may have a dvd player or set top box for satellite or cable or an internet streaming device such as a roku to connect. connect the device using the appropriate connectors and cables. once the output of the device is connected to an input on the set, select the input the device is connected to on the set from the tv remote or the side panel buttons and power on the device. hopefully you will see a screen displayed on your tv. if your audio is connected, you should be able to play a video and hear sound. just check all connections to be sure your output connections on your connected devices are attached to the appropriate inputs on your set with the appropriate cables. you may need hdmi, s-video, optical, rca or other cables depending on the device connections and your set connections.

c. if you still can not get a picture or sound, try your device with another set and try other devices on your set such as another dvd player or a camera.

hope this helps.

Blinking red light tv wont come on

Check all the connections at the back in case they are loose. Make sure that all the devices connected to the set are working properly - sometimes they need to be restarted. My Mom's satellite tuner does that sometimes and it messes with the TV.

I have a Bauhn 42" HD TV. Kids use AV connection for both DVD and WI. Problem is they constantly change over the three AV leads and now the connection in the TV is loose. Can get picture but no sound. Any...

Are there another set of the three AV leads in the rear of the TV? If so, go to your local electronics store, buy a set of RCA extension cables to go from the rear of the TV to the front and let the kids use the cables to change back and forth between consoles.

LC-26DA5U 26 in. HDTV-Ready LCD Television: i connect a hdmi cable 2 my hd cable box - the pic...

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.
