This is a common trait with cheap brands. Alba are a cheap brand for a reason. Supermarket own brands also suffer flaws like this.
Cheaper usually means you lose a lot of functions that make life easier. Take Polaroid a cheap brand for Asda supermarkets. Use one of there TVs and you’ll see the same thing. You can press guide. You don’t get a tv picture in the guide like most more expensive brands. Select a channel. Press ok. Normally your guide would close once you press ok. But on these TVs you have to press ok. Then yet again press guide to close the TV guide to watch the channel.
When you buy cheap the normal practice is you give up silly things and quality that make normal life easier on proper brands like Sony or Samsung.
Some cheaper TVs you’ll also find don’t have a network or Ethernet connection or WiFi. To enable use of software updates. Cheaper TVs normally have to rely on “over the air” updates meaning the update has to be broadcast over UHF the same way your tv channels are. This is very rarely done as the updates can be to large in size.
It’s simply just the design of the tv you have. Cheaper doesn’t always mean better.

Hello friends...i have a 15 lcd of alba company..model no alcd15tv2 ro3sx2...i m having problem with my tv sound as when i connects to tv through rf in sound dosent come...and when i join a dvd or any...


You have something in the set's menu set wrong--if sound ok with a DVD set is ok---look in menu for something like SAP= most sets have Mono-Stereo-Sap settings.

Sap is secondary audio program which is for a second language to be broadcast (French, Spanish etc.) and if not active there will be no sound on selected channels.

I suspect a careful look will show SAP is engaged and some remotes have a button (MTS etc that will unwittingly get pressed).

Good luck and hope this helped.

Sky+ Remote Control Unit Programming Procedure Follow the steps below

1* Select any channel on the TV.

2* Point your Sky+ remote control away from the TV and press the tv button.

3* Press and hold down the Select and red buttons simultaneously on the Sky+ remote control until the red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control flashes twice.

4* Input the 3 digit number from the Sky+ remote control codes then press the Select button. The red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control should flash twice.

5. Point the Sky+ remote control at the TV and try the volume button.

If this works try the other TV functions.

If these work then the correct code has been selected.

It's important to note that not all TV functions will be supported by the Sky+ remote control e.g. Picture in Picture.
?

If all functions do not work correctly, then repeat steps 1 to 3 and work through all the relevant 3 digit numbers from the Sky Plus remote control codes, until you find the code which supports all or as many of the TV functions as possible.
Please note: In order to operate both your TV and Sky+ with your Sky+ remote control, you will be required to switch modes e.g. to switch on your TV from stand-by, you would need to press "TV" followed by the "Stand-by" button. Then to change channel on your Sky+ you would need to press the "Sky" button followed by the "TV guide" button.
OK.

Hi. I have an ALBA LCD32880HDF television which I purchased in August 2009 so just outside warrenty. I have been on holiday for a week and had switched the television off at the wall and returned home...


hi all the black screen solution for me was this (this is assuming you have alba brand tvs and have the black screen BUT can still hear the sound) i after much fekkin around with it eventually found the solution in it (its the bloody backlight brightness in the settings you need to turn it from high TO LOW) ....... now this can be a bit tricky because usually when you have the black screen problem if u unplug the tv for a few hours and plug it back in you only get or should get probably like 30-1min of picture time before the picture goes black so u have to be reallllly fast with the menu button to get into settings before the picture dies (i learned the sequence for my alba lcd32880hdf) it was the following (for this part use the remotes arrows the one with the ok button usually in the centre of them) turn the tv on then click menu then press the up key 2 times then press ok then use the right arrow/button twice (although u cant see what ur doing ur navigating the menu hehe) then press the down arrow/button seven times before finally pressing the left arrow/button (once) <-- (now this bit may need to be done twice if you can remember setting ur backlight to max use it twice it will put it on minimum if in doubt only press it the once remember to totally power the tv off before repeating the steps to reset menus default posistions) remember thats the solution i found for my tv stands to reason (since i did infact buy another tv same brand different model which got the same problem) that this could be a solution for all alba tv users try it worked for me 2 times if ur not sure of the menu look up you tv models menu navigation online to find out the buttons you press gl hopefully it works for you too

My Pioneer PDP-4280HD Plasma - Have never been able to get the TV Guide feature to work. Only some of the set up screens are shown in the manual. Can someone help? I see the feed of channels, which is...


My research into your set and its TV Guide feature brought up two points that may be relevant:

  1. It apparently takes about 24 hours for the guide to load up completely. This would make it difficult to get real-time info as to whether it was working or not.
  2. 'TV Guide' may not work will all providers, and may not work as providers switch to digital. Have you spoken to your provider about possible compatibility?


I hope that helps
