How to keep TV on digital?

For the second time in three days, I've accidentally hit some button that switches the TV from digital to analog. My friend fixed it the first time. Now, I'm stuck again. I've pressed every button I can, but I can't switch it back to digital and there's no picture.

Re: How to keep TV on digital?

It depends a little bit on your setup but sounds like you may have drifted from an external source to the television's internal tuner.
On my slightly different Aquos model my digital channels are "Ext 5" and "Ext 6".  There is a button next to the digits that is a square with an arrow pointing into the inside of the square.  This can be used to cycle through the external analogue and digital sources.
Push the button and then leave it for about 5 seconds as it can take a while before an image is displayed.  Keep pushing the button until the right digital channel is displayed.

Trying to find a remote code. The tv is a 19"PLEDV1945A-B and the remote is a Time Warner UR5U-8780L-TWC

TV Instructions:
TV Codes: try 333
or 116, 143, 258, 363
STEP 1 Turn on the TV.

STEP 2 Press the [TV] button and the [OK/SEL] button simultaneously for three seconds. The TV Device LED will turn on indicating that the remote is in the programming mode. The LED will remain on for 30 seconds and the next step must be entered while the LED is on.

STEP 3 Point the remote control toward the TV and enter the three-digit code number assigned to your brand device (codes can be found in the code tables in the user guide or online). If there are more than one three-digit number listed for your brand, try one code number at a time until your TV turns off.

Note: When the TV turns off you can verify that you have selected the correct code by pressing the [POWER] button. The TV should turn back on. Then try all of the functions on the remote control (i.e. volume, mute, etc.) to ensure you have the correct code. If any of the functions do not operate as they should, repeat the instructions from STEP 3 above using the next three digit code number from the brand list.

STEP 4 Store the three-digit code by pressing the [TV] button once again. The TV Device LED will blink twice to confirm that the TV code has been stored.

This is the way to enter service mode menu to most of the Pansonic TVs.

1. Press and Hold Down the [Vol-ve] key, on the front panel of the TV set.
2. Press "Recall" button on the remote control three times.
The service menu window will appear.
3. Use digits [1] & [2] keys on the remote control to navigate Main Menu items.
4. Use digits [2] & 4] keys on the remote control to navigate sub Menus.
5. Press [Vol+ or Vol-ve] keys on the remote control to change the data value to selected item.
6. Power OFF the TV, by its main Power ON/OFF switch to save the adjusted value into memory and to exit from service menu. When you switch ON the set for the next time, it will come alive with adjusted parameters.

My Emerson flat screen wont turn on. The standby light is on and when you turn it on the green light blinks about 6 times goes solid for a second then straight to standby again. Every 20 times or so you...

The 6 blinks are actually a error code. Go to the Emerson web site you should be able to look the code up there. Its more than likely a bad power supply. I have a friend who works on tvs and he said nine times out of ten there are popped or raised capacitors in the power supply. Hope this helps.

I have a small magnavox HDTV. I unplugged it to watch it in another room. The next day when I moved it back into the living room I turned it on. Every time I try changing the channel it changes the source...

Is it a multi-function remote? If it is, make sure you've punched the TV button before using it. Also, make sure none of the buttons on the remote or the TV have accidentally been pushed down and are stuck.

With my Sony Bravia 46" xbr the screen keeps cutting out. I'm usig hdmi cables and can't find a reason why te tv keeps cutting out. The sound still remains but picture doesn't. Not even out technician can...

Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.

I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).

TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD
