Sanyo Television blue screen

Just been sold a second hand flat screen Sanyo Television. When I turned it on all I have is a blue screen. I can change channels manually and have sound but no picture. I tried it on my Computer to see if that worked but again, just a blue screen. I DO NOT have the remote. Do I just chuck it out or is there hope?

SOURCE: programming channels

Hey abshee,

In order to program the channels for this TV, you'll want to press the "Menu" button on the TV itself. Once in the main menu, scroll down until you see an option called "Setup." From here, press the right arrow key to enter the submenu. Before going any further, you'll want to make sure that the tuning band is correctly set to "Air" or "Cable," which will depend on how you have your TV connected.

Once the proper input has been selected, you can then scroll down to "Auto Ch Search." If you press the right arrow key on this option, your TV will automatically search for all available channels.

If you'd like step-by-step instructions (with pictures of what you should see at any given step), I'd suggest checking out the link I've provided below to Insignia's online owner’s manual for this model:

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Television comes on for a second and then screen turns black but tv still on

Does the OSD (on screen display) come up when you hit the menu button? If so try changing the input to the one you need.

Hi gud noon.just want some advice i have a problem with our tv sanyo flat screen if we try to turn it on it only appears blue screen theres no picture....thats our problem... we try to call already the...

  1. Try changing the input on the TV to see if the Blue screen goes away. Can you access the TV menu on the screen? If so, try running a channel scan until it is complete. Then check if the blue screen is still there.
  2. Disconnect any RCA cables, or other input cables from the back and see if you still have a blue screen.

2 year old Sanyo DP42848 Screen turns on for a couple of seconds then turns black... Audio works fine. Help!!

You may have a defective inverter. The inverter provides the back lighting you need to see video. There is good chance the starting resistors have changed values. It would be best to replace the inverter in your case. I would have to have a schematic to find the bad resistors. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Cracked screen

The screen in your TV is not easy to change. The cost of the screen alone will be very close to the purchase price of a new set.
