Channel changes to channel 1 when your turn set off

All of the sudden my set is now turning to channel 1 whenever it is turned off and then back on (instead of staying on AV-1 which I need for my digital cable).

Any idea how to fix?

    Not really -- the problem disappeared at some point. I no longer own the set.

SOURCE: Digital channel 25 has no sound.

First make sure SAP or nothing similar is turned on.

After you triple check that just Contact ILO if it continues for more than 1month. This is a software error.

What state are you in?
What channel is this?NBC, ABC
Have you check this at different times of day?
What TV does your son have?

Whenever I turn on the TV it turns on in component input mode therfore forcing me to have to change the input every time I turn on the TV just to watch it! Can you please help me?

There may be an option in the menu section of the T V (may be by using the remote) that is switchable between turning on with last channel viewed, or it is set to turn on to a particular channel or input such as that component input. Hope this helps.

Olevia LT27HVX 27 just blue screen

I just had this same problem over the weekend. Is your TV hooked up via HDMI?? Mine was and i've been having problems with the tv image shrinking whenever i turn on the tv, so i would have to change the channel 1 or 2 times for the image to come up normally. On Saturday I went to change the channel and then all of a sudden I hearld this loud pop and when the image came on it was just a sky blue screen, I couldnt see anything, but I could hear the channel. So I disconnected the HDMI and hooked up the tv with component cables I had and now it works fine. I ordered a new HDMI cable just to see if it will work again. If not, i'm calling Olevia.

Center channel

Just to rule out the easy solutions, have you made sure no settings changed? Make sure that you didn't accidentally turn off any surround sound settings or turn off the center channel in the MCACC setup or the like (I have the VSX-D814, so your receiver should have MCACC as well). If you're sure no settings changed and the center channel should be working according to the receiver, then it would appear that the center channel amp went out in the receiver. You can either get a Pioneer service center to take a look at it, or if you're comfortable with electronics, I believe you can get the parts straight from Pioneer.
