Amstrad Widescreen TV

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

Can't change our Panasonic TV channel to watch DVD input

Buy a 21 way scart.This will have an 'AV' enable connection built in. After fitting, turn on the TV, then turn on the DVD player. It will automatically enable the DVD through the scart socket.

Son pressed something and now DVD won't work

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.

Can't get TV onto the AUX channel

You can purchase an RCA universal remote that will let you access the A-V inputs. These only cost about $10.00 or so. Stargazer

Audio, but No video when connecting DVD player to TV

Try checking the AV cable. Just interchange the Audio and Video cables, and if now you get video, and no audio, problem is faulty cables. Replace.

Maxim 1160 (Thomson) 32" Widescreen CRT - no signal

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.
