Re: frozen on a menu screen

Just fixed ours with the same problem. You need to hit the volume buttons on the remote during the time the screen goes black but BEFORE it gives you the "Connect cables" message.It should trick the TV into giving you a blank channel.

Sanyo TVs are made notoriously cheap, and have little glitches like this. Best of luck, space cowboy.

Re: frozen on a menu screen

Well you might know what to do by now, but i just found out, you have to un-hook everything dvd cables etc.. from the back of the tv, THEN, press channel up.  After it loads to 100%, the screen should turn black and then say no signal.. then thats your cue to hook your dvd cables, video game etc..  thats what i have to do with my HD 32 inch Sanyo LCD.

How do i change the input

The 27" TV uses the same instructions as the 20", and I found the manual for you at the link below. Answering your question directly, here is the section of the instructions about changing input:
Changing the TV's Input Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, if you've connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR & DVD) using the Video/Audio input,you will want to be able to view the signal from the component.To do this, you will need to switch from the ' TV ' input to the 'AV1-AV3, CVI' Input, as follows. 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then " Set-Up " menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHV buttons to select " Input ". 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change the input source from ' TV ' to 'AV1, AV2, AV3, CVI'. 4 Wait 20 seconds, or press DISPLAY button or MENU button to return to normal TV viewing. * CVI means the Component Video Input (Y/ PB/ PR) from the DVD player etc.* Users can also select these input modes with the TV/AV button or the INPUT button on theremote controller. * On the AV1 mode , if you connect the S-VHS jack to your TV, "AV1" is changed to "S-VIDEO".
The link to the manual is below.

Blue screen has audio can change channels and hear different audio but no picture

If you can see menu on-screen display, just get into it, surf for blue-back option and turn it OFF first, and see whether there is any grains appears on your screen. If there is no grains, and only a plane raster, your TVs video processor Ic has got damaged, and should need replacement. If there is grains, you just retune it in autotuning option, and allow it to store all the transmitting signals at that time. This process may take two or three minutes to complete, and you should wait till then. Never forget to connect antenna socket to the antenna terminal of your tv.
If you are using set top box, and connected it to the TV through audio-video cable, your TV has no fault, but the set top boxs' video processor has got damaged. OK,

How to connect tv set to digial tv tuner converter box

There are two ways to connect a converter box.

The simplest is to use the RF antenna cable supplied with the converter. Connect it from the box (the round threaded connector) to the TV's antenna/cable input connector and put the TV on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the converter box is set to). If your set has screw terminals for the antenna connection, you'll need an adapter to switch from the round cable connection to the screws. This may also have been supplied, but you'll probably need to pick one up at Radio Shack or another retailer.

The other way, if your TV has the inputs, is to use the audio/video output jacks on the converter. Again, the cable is usually supplied with the box. This direct connection gives better picture and sound quality than the RF method. The jacks are color coded: red and white for the audio right and left channels, yellow for video. Just connect them to the matching jacks on the TV and select the video input to watch the box. (If your TV is mono and has only a single white audio input jack, you'll need a Y-adapter to join the two audio signals from the box into one. This is also available at Radio Shack. If you don't do this, you'll only get one channel of the sound when watching a stereo channel.)

Please take a moment to rate this solution if you found it satisfactory. Thanks for asking!

Sony tv problem

If you are connecting the dish receiver to the standard antenna jack (F connector) on the TV, then the TV must be in TV mode and tuned to channel 3. If you accidently change to another channel then you will get the "no signal" message. If this is the case then simply put the TV back on channel 3. If you are using the RCA jacks (red, white yellow) to connect the dish receiver to the TV, then the TV must be in the VIDEO mode to work properly. If you accidently put the TV in the TV mode, you will get the "no signal" message. If this is the case then simply press the TV/VIDEO button.
