I'm having a problem getting the av channel on this tv which is about 5 years old and recently purchased. I#ve tried a DVD player and PS2 console, plugged it into the back of the TV via the red,yellow and white sockets, switched it on, but with no response. I checked with the previous owner and they said when they connected their DVD player it would automatically come on the TV when the player was switched on, but this isnt happening for me and I didnt know if it was a problem with the TV or if there could be anything I'm doing wrong. Thank you

Re: Amstrad Widescreen TV
Have you got the remote control for the tv set ?
You must put tv on AV channel you can only do this using the remote.
Allso double check that the yellow phono plug is in the socket marked video in on tv set.

this a problem with microprocessor signal, this will be difficult for to fix it yourself. Every signal coming from tv goes to the CPU, you must have high skill for to repair and diagram. I can recommend you to get assistance from some repair shop TV for fix it. see the diagram and you will see the problem difficult. God bless you
Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.
If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.
Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.
Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.
Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:
1. Model number of the Bush TV 2. Brand and model number of the DVD player 3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.
I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.
The dvd has Y= video composite, R= Right channel audio, W= Left channel audio these are the common jacks of electronics, Now the G=Green,R=Red,B=Blue are usual Component VIDEO OUT/IN for higher video resolutions, this could explain no video picture, try the Y=Yellow to Y=Yellow from dvd to TV then set tv to a VIDEO input 1 or 2
well there could be two things going on here that i can think of, one the scart lead between the dvd and the tv is not i properly vica versa for the dvd player, the other thing is the button which changes the av channels could have been pushed so simply push the button while the dvd os on and find the av channel, the button looks like an arrow going right hope it helps.
Your going to need the original remote first. then go into the menu and do a channel search on it. if it goes through and finds no channels then the tuners bad. You could have that famous RCA on nboard tuner fault where alot of sheild grounds are bad. This is not a job for the layman. if you cannot get channels by doing a channel scan call out an rca or thompson repair person.
No sir its not just an adjust ment or "twiddling" It sounds like its one of the same as your girlfriends set except a differant part such as a capacitor in the vertical curcuit, Output IC or even a defective resistor?? Good Luck
