I got a new 14" duraband tv from adsa a few weeks ago but only just got an aerial. I followed the directions to plug it all in and press 1 and a screen should come up to tune the channels in. But all I get is a blue screen with a countdown from 5 minutes and then it switiches off! Ive tried starting again but nothing seems to work!

I have no direct idea but you could try a few things........
I assume you get these via an aerial, the first I know is obvious but are they on air in your area? then I would try feeding the TV via another aerial to see if this brings it back ( aerials and cables can decay and cause many curious effects to notch out signals) so if a second aerial works replace your original system.
The TV may have a skip option to jump/ignore some channels check on this, failing this factory reset or tune again and store. Also with previous point if TV small move to another location (next door or friends house).
Sorry best I can think of other than a service engineer ......
Hello Without its remote control, you can't select its AV channel. Just try to get a new remote control or buy a universal remote control, which have setup codes for Duraband Tv with it. Setup codes for Duraband are: 0189 0135 0157
0153 0254 0458 0217
Direct Code Entry
Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.
Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:http://www.stevelarkins.freeuk.com/freeview_digital_tv.htm Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels. This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is
pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard)
signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial. make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out. The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable. If
you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the
aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these. If
the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will
amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the
signal. please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the
correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will
only make it worse. try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.
Unfortunately, this is what we call in the industry total meltdown due to merging circuitry. you will have to replace the entire circuit arrangement in this set. the audio ic's are probably the only components that are still operational. this repair will cost quite a bit to be honest. you may be better off purchasing a new set. sorry for the bad news there.
Your son more than likely changed the input source. You may be able to change it back by pressing the channel up/down button or you may have to enter the menu on the tv and change inputs that way. PS's will usually connect using a video input using a red/white/yellow cords. You may also want to ensure the connections are in their proper place as I do not know how savvy your son is at changing the setup over to play his PS. If you use a modulator to connect to the TV-either the PS or aerial- ensure that it is powered up also. I hope this has been of assistance to you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance let me know.
By an aerial do you mean a converter?
For the neew TV's you don't need one. Just plug it in using A/V cable (yellow is video, red and white are audio). Be sure you take note of which input you are plugging it into on the TV, and then use your TV's remote to change the video input (usually will be labeled video or TV/Video on the remote) to the one you plugged the PS2 into.
I am not sure about Direct TV but dish network does not allow the hookup to go through their box...it must go through the TV only. Speaking with Duraband at 1-800-256-2487 confirms you have to have a Duraband remote and universals won't program to it. Ask for parts dept. and order a new remote. Sorry - not good news for me either!!!
Most likely cause would be a blown fuse on the power supply if you are getting no lights on the front, no response from the buttons, and no warmth from the back of the set.
First check that not only is the power socket in the wall working, but also that the plug on the TV power cord is not faulty or distorted so it doesn't make the circuit when plugged into the wall, also if it has a fused plug, check that.
Then if you feel up to taking the cover off, make sure the set is unplugged and leave it for a few minutes first.
take off the back cover (usually a few screws around the base of the set, but it should be obvious)
follow where the power cord enters the box, and about the first thing it should connect to is likely to have a fuse. Probably a couple of metal spring clips with a glass tube type fuse sitting in them. The fuse should have a rating stamped on it and you should be able to get a replacement at most hardware stores, but make sure you get the same type as well as rating.
If a replacement fuse doesn't cure the problem then the next thing to suspect would be the transformer and rectifier circuit - the fuse should have protected these, but sometimes it doesn't work that way. If you need help checking these then please ask again, but I suspect the fuse is your problem.
Hope this helps you out, please ask again if you need more info :)
