SOURCE: input source change on remote for tv

Are there not enough ports? You can buy port splitters to add more connections to your tv. Also, some surround sound receivers have port switchers too.

SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

When pressing menu on remote control I do not have a tv section listed to tune in channels


The TV channel settings Menu is usually only available when the Input is on TV. Look for a Source or Input button on the TV or the remote. Press this button and try to change to the TV source option.

Please add a comment with the make and model of the TV for additional information. (Unfortunately, many TVs don't let you change the source after pressing the Menu button and they don't always have a Source/Input button on the TV. Additionally, some replacement remotes don't even include a Source or Input button. For those with an Input button, you may need to try other codes to see if any will correctly work with the TV.)

My Santo TV screen keeps flashing different colours


Be sure all your input cables are securely plugged in all the way, be sure to check them at the TV & the source. Also be certain the input cables are in good working order.
If this doesn't help, does the color change on all inputs? Try connecting a DVD player to the unit.

After warm-up screen flashes and loses color but comes back on and off intermittidly. This is a 50" Zenith Plasma tv. thanks.


Sounds as if a cable connection is bad. Check the cables first. If cable are good, change inputs, if cables are bad replace cables. If it's component, make sure that red, blue or green didn't come loose on both sides...the tv and the source. If you still have problems, check for red video noise on the screen itself, preferably when it's on but with on input (black) If you notice this, your plasma is failing.

Main source should be on tuner and the color is off, what should I do? The main picture source has been set on Tuner forever, but after having some cable repairs, the main picture source is now Component,...


If you want to change the input source to tuner, go to the remote, hit the source button until it says "tuner", then go to menu, page to the "picture" settings, and page through to color, to adjust the color, You might need to also go to color temps and adjust the picture to your tastes. Keep in mind, however, that whoever changed the setting for the source to component, may have altered the port for your input. You need to check the back of your TV and see. The inputs are clearly marked. If your source is via coaxial cable, the you will want tuner as your source. If, however, your input has been changed to the RCA ports, then you will want to keep it on component, and just change your picture settings. Hope this helps, good luck.

I'M TRYING TO CONNECT MY DVD PLAYER [GE 1101P] TO MY PHILLIPS HDTV. WHICH CORDS GO WHERE?


there should be 3 colored cords,if that's the way you are trying to hook it up.There is that or HDMI.For colored cords,insert the color into the matching color on the OUTPUT labeled portion of the DVD player.Take the other 3 ends and insert them into the INPUT labeled part of the TV.To access it on the TV,you will need to press the input or input select button (whatever it is labeled) on the TV remote,and select input 1 or input 2,depending on which on it is connected to on the TV.Just about all TV's these days have at least 2 inputs for an external source.Your TV remote button may even be labeled source select.You should be all set from there. Good luck!

Component input colour is messed up


Hi,
Go to the back of the TV and make sure, the component cables are inserted in all the way. Do the same for the source (cable or satellite receiver) component cables should be firmly inserted.
Try narrowing the problem by testing the TV with a different source, such as a DVD player if it compatible with the component. If the TV works with the DVD then your TV is fine and the problem goes back to the source (Cable or Satellite Receiver)
If the TV still not showing natural colors after been tested with another source.. then, the TV may have a bad PCB.

Best of Luck

The color just went out on my tv - it is only showing in black and white. Is there anything I can do?


There's a few things you can try - change the source or how the source is hooked up. If you are hooked to satelite or cable box (source) try hooking hooking up to the tv (video 1or2 input) with video cables (RCA type -red.wht, Yel) from your source. Also try seeing if you have color when you play a DVD (if available).If it doesn't matter which source you use or how you hook it up you still have no color than the problem is internal to the TV.
These sets have a common problem with an internal comb filter circuit that can cause no color - but it usually also causes distotion in the oicture as well
Hope this helped, be sure to rate/vote for me if it did

njdb,
Look on the remote for keys that are labled tv/vcr or source or input... In fact, if you go to the front of the unit - that's a Sanyo right - find the grouping of buttons that change the channel, volume etc.. There should be a button marked source or input there.. Press it as many times as it takes to get back to the input source your cable is on...
If you have any problems let me know...
