Sharp tv won't display cable picture (it only shows fuzz) but the netflix and DVD both work. The cable says no input service available. I am able to change the channel on the cable box, but on the tv

Your cable box might not be sending signal out to the tv. Would have to call service provider to have them test your box. Or, you can try unplugging your cable box, and then plugging it back in. Make sure all connections are secure and settings on your tv are accurate. 11_13_2013_3_31_52_pm.png

Sony Bravia TV

If you get a blue screen at turn on and a short time later it shuts off--power supply is ok--set is shutting down as no signal detected to protect the screen.

If using a box first unplug it and wait and plug back--let box try to reboot itself.

Also as a test hook a DVD etc to a rear set of audio/video inputs and go to that input quickly when the set comes on (have DVD connected and on---see if set works that way.

No signal either a problem with the set or the signal source (box?).

My element electronics tv says no signal

Two things to try:

1. Connect a DVD or something else to one of the rear audio/video inputs to see if set works that way.

2. Check to make sure set in menu is set to tuner and cable---if the tuner in the set is bad a cable box with audio/video outs on the back can be hooked to one of the rear audio/video inputs and will bypass the tv tuner--you will stay that input to watch TV and change channels with the box----

The cost of renting a box is minor compared to having to replace the tuner in the set.

What do I do to get my signal back on my westinghouse TV that is hooked up to dish cable

If no signal via the cable fitting try hooking set via one of the sets of jacks on the back (audio/video or component) to see if coax input or tuner is bad.

If the set works with a DVD etc hooked to one of those inputs and your cable is good--maybe a bad tuner in the set---also if using a box try hooking cable direct to set to rule out the box.

I got a 40" Sony Bravia as a Christmas present,

Most likely the input box that have the problems.Because the input box is another hurtle for the video signal to goes through to get to the tv.Take all the devices out of the input box hook it up directly to the tv should solved this problems.

I can't seem to hook up my Insignia T.V. and my dvd player up

The way to hook up the dvd player to the television to to put a cable into the output signal section of the dvd player( Ther may be many different ways to hook-up the signal s-video and component video, regular video. You must pick one of these output signal sources to put into the input section of your television by matching them up i.e s-video out to s-video input compnent video output to component video input, regular video out to regular video input. For each of these video hook-ups there will also be a set of two sound cables. Look on the back of your television for the signal input section and hook up the video cables and the sound cables to your selected input. You should do this with both units turned off in order not to damage the circuits by shorting them on cable insertions ofr causing heavy feedback in the circuits. One this connection is complete. Trun on the television first and select the TV's signal source . By pressing the input button and using the up and down arrows to find the correct selection. By matching up all three sources you now should have the correct signal path. Turn your DVD and test the controls. try using the volume control and use you dvd to to play,ff, or stop the dvd.If all this works then you have done the set up correctly and can now enjoy your dvd's on the television Hope this helps you with your problem..

DVD/VCR hook up to HDTV. No audio on DVD or VCR, no video on VCR

When you use component audio, it may shut off the side a/v audio settings. Try restoring all defualts (any changes you have made will be lost by doing so) according to p. 32 of the manual:
Menu --> Setup --> Reset --> Yes

Hook up vcr

Unhook the dvd cables from the AV1 ports on the tv. Then hook these DVD outputs to the inputs on the vcr. Then hook the vcr outputs to the tv inputs (AV1). The tv and the vcr must then be set to channel 3 in order to watch the dvd (and possibly also some menu settings such as setting everything to "component video" and/or setting the tv/vcr button to "vcr. Also set all "3 or 4" switches on the back of all equipment to channel 3. Also, don't forget to go into your tv menu and choose AV1 when you want to watch the dvd and/or the vcr.
You can also try connecting your dish to the vcr and then the vcr to the input on the tv where you HAD the dish connected. There are several combinations you can try, but just remember to always put output cables to the INPUTS of the next piece of equipment in line, and set your menu settings appropriately on all equipment whenever you change from one machine to the next.
If all this fails, then here is a 100% positive solution. Buy an "A/B" switch. It has two inputs and only one output. You could leave the dvd connected as is and connect the dish and the vcr to the two inputs on the A/B switch. Then hook the one output of the A/B switch to the tv. When you change the position of the A/B switch back and forth, you will be changing over back and forth from dvd to vcr. You can move the A/B input selection switch manually or you can buy a remote controlled A/B switch and do your switching with the remote that comes with the switch.

Panasonic legacy connection

s-video is a legacy connection. legacy means obsolete and this will impare your image.

what you should do is connect the cable box and blue ray directly to tv with hdmi cable, then run audio cables back to the reciever from these devices. the vcr and regular dvd player would be routed through the reciever the conventional way. you would have to change the inputs on the tv between the cable box, and blue ray if u have one, and a seperate single tv imput for components running thru the stereo. you would have to use the reciever to select between audio sources, and the video sources between the vcr and dvd only.
