Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have my Mitsubishi tv plugged into the outlet on the back of my cable box. When I hit off for the cable, the tv goes off. But when I hit on, the tv stays off. I have to hit on for the tv separate. Don't want to do that. Need for tv to come on when the cable gets turned on. How's that work? Thanks.

    Not a good idea to use the cable box to disconnect power to the TV---you could damage the set--check to see if the outlet on the box is marked switched or unswitched---if you need more info reply to this post. SD TECH

Don't think you can that because the tv has to be pulsed on instead coming on when ac is applied

No volume from cable


Hello!
First step: reset your cable box by unplugging of the power supply or unplug power cord of the box. If that's an old fashion big gray one or black one with additional power outlet for TV set, there is a power cord goes into. Unplug it, then plug it back in within 1 minute. not the TV itself, but the cable box's power cord. This will reset it. If you have more modern one or small one for non HD TVs, they have external power adapter, which plugs into those boxes.
Pull that plug out for a minute, then plug it back into. That should take care of your sound issue. Known problem.
Good luck,
Let me know if that took care of your issue.
thanks,
Alex.

Mitsubishi rear projection TV , Model VS-45603.In the last year it started to turn off by itself. It has no real pattern. It can turn off 2-3 times one day and none the next day. It is hooked up with...


What kind of cable are you using to connect it with (coax, HDMI, RCA (composite), component, s-video)?
This may be a grounding problem. Either the cable from the satellite dish is grounded to something with a little electricity running through it or you may have a hot ground in your electrical outlet. Or the cable may be on a different ground than your electrical outlet and by connecting the two it has created a slight electrical current. You can try using a plug adaptor to remove your receiver from the electrical outlet ground. These adaptors are meant for older homes and electrical outlets that do not have a third hole or ground plug. The outer metal part of all video connectors is the ground and this may be causing the tv to act strangely.

I hope this works.

Had the digital cable box installed yesterday. The tv worked


The cable box has an AC outlet on the back of it and sometimes the installer plugs the TV power cord into it. This outlet has two modes--IE: on all the time or switched. If the outlet happens to be programmed to the switched mode, the cable box has to be on before you can turn on the TV. If the outlet is on all the time, then you can turn the TV on at will. So, you have to decide if the TV is plugged in there or it is plugged into the wall recptacle. If none of this explanation fits, then we need more information.

Try resetting the TV by holding down the "up" button on the remote (with the TV powered on) and then, while you hold down the up button on the remote, hit the power button on the TV. This should do a "factory reset" which will wipe all settings in the TV. There is no reason why the TV should not "remember the last input it was on when it was ;last turned off. Also be sure that the TV is not plugged into a switched AC outlet, like the outlet on the back of the cable bix. The TV should be plugged into an output that receives power at all times.

Blue Screen Issue


try hooking all systems involved to the same electrical circuit, using a power strip if neccessary. also check your big screen and other equipment and make sure that any polarized plugs are in correctly. if you are an electrician, or know one, check the circuits that you're using to be sure the outlets are wired correctly. if the ground, neutral or power are not wired to the outlets properly it will seem to work, but not right. check the "cable line in" at the ground block with a multimeter for excessive power or get a qualified cable tech to check. when you touch the cable coming to the box or the tv and also touch the cable in do you feel a tingle? if so, it is most likely a power issue as mentioned above.

The TV and Cable box both continue to shut down; Please Help!!!


Do you mean that the TV shuts off and the cable box also shuts off? Is the TV plugged into the back of the cable box? This sounds to me as if the cable box is defective and the TV is plugged into the cable box instead of the power strip. To prove whether or not the cable box is defective, plug the cable directly into the TV, plug the TV directly into the wall outlet and watch one of the lower channels. If the TV acts up and shuts off, have the TV serviced. If the TV plays fine, replace the cable box.
