Question about Apex Digital ADV3800 DVD Player/VCR

I have AT&T cable service on my Apex television. Whenever I turn the TV during a program the TV automatically switches to DVD mode and the tray opens for loading. I'm constantly hitting the TV/VCR button on the Apex remote to make it switch back to television picture. Normally there's no need to use the Apex remote if I'm watching TV through cable remote. What can be causing the TV to constantly switches to DVD mode w/o touching the Apex remote?

Hi There is an I/P button on your player's remote control. Power your player on then press the I/P button on your remote control.

SOURCE: DVD/VCR combo player won't work

I had a similar problem and corrected it with a solution found on another site. Try hitting the I/P button on the remote which controls whether "Interlaced" or "Progressive Scan" is used to display the image on the TV. Mine worked when "Interlaced" was used. but no picture was displayed when "Progressive Scan" was used. The I/P button toggles between the two settings.

SOURCE: APEX Digital VCR&DVD PLAYER ADV-3800 will not play DVD's.

What it so far done, it looks pretty fine. I'd break apart the problem if is posible to do it, i mean maybe you have some other sets around the house or some friend who have them.

  • i'd test the dvd/vcr in a different tv
  • i'd test the tv with a different dvd
i would start over again the installation after this test.

the reason is to know if you can trust in those sets and second maybe with some other try the installation works

I just purchased a universal remote and programmed it to my Apex and I can't get the cable to work I can't get it to go off mono what do I do?


Make sure your TV is set to Cable (Manually), Then with you TV on, hold the cable button down, and keep pressing the power button, till the TV shuts off...this should set your remote to cable mode! When you turn back on, press cable button then power!

You may have to repeat the steps, for the TV to come back on, to re-program your remote!

Hope this Helps!

Apex DVD/Tv combo GT2015DV won't play dvd's


Something is wrong..crbr799 your DVD-TV has a TV-DVD button on the right front to switch from TV to DVD play...OPEN button on left side ,place DVD in tray, close & press PLAY...
I something simulator that needs the remote control for the SPECIAL functions....by the way the ORIGINAL r\c is $135 to $155, a replacement ($35) will turn the TV\DVD on ( which you can do without the r\c) and NOT function with anything else.
P.S. they will try to sell you universal r\c that work with the CABLE boxes, the ones that you pay a monthly fee!!

I can hear the tv but no picture.. i remove the red, yellow, and white cord from the back of the tv to dust...pls help.. Apex tv brand


Hi! Welcome to Fixya!

If you are unable to view video on your television set, the issue may be that the TV's video input selection does not match.

The TV input source must match how the equipment for example DVD is connected to the TV.

* Plug the RCA cables(red,yellow,white cord) to the designated ports.
* Grab your Apex TV remote and attempt to cycle through the video inputs by hitting the "Input" button at the top of the remote multiple times.
* If you have used a DVD player or similar external device recently, you may have neglected to switch the video input back to the one assigned to your TV programming.
* Devices such as DVD players often reside on the AV 1 or AV 2 video input, and failure to switch back off of one of these will result in a dark, soundless screen when attempting to view cable or satellite television.
* Cycle through the inputs until you land on your cable/satellite input once more, which should result in an immediate restoration of picture and sound.
* If it does not, approach your Apex TV and look over the A/V cable connections. The A/V cable has two sets of prongs, one on either of its ends. Each prong is either red, yellow and white, and plugs into corresponding A/V ports on the back of the Apex TV and the back of your cable or satellite box. Make sure the ports and prongs are color-corresponding and have not been switched up.

Thank you for using FixYa. Keep me posted. :

Someone else set up a new apex 40 inch flat screen for us. they did not do the universal remote. They had us just turning on with volume control; on one and doing all other (CABLE ETC ) with other remote...


You will need book to set codes or search (google) for your uni remote codes for what device you are trying to work. The main thing to remember is to switch modes when wanting to work something. Like press tv mode button when using tv or dvd mode when dvd is being used, etc.
