I have a Digistar HD LCD TV model LC-4010D. I have no remote for the TV. When I turn it on, the blue light turns on to show that it has power. But no picture or sound appears. It is currently plugged into...

I'm not familiar with the tv set, however here are some things to try.

It's possible that the tv powers up in stand-by mode, so you'll need to find a way to turn it on completely. See if there are channel +/- buttons on the tv and try them.

If the remote might be necessary, try to see if you have friends/family with a universal remote control, such as a Logitech Harmony, to lend to you for testing. This way you can avoid spending money for nothing on a remote.

Googling on this brand and model gives a lot of negativity though: a lot of problems posting, but no support or even an online manual. Personally I've never heard of Digistar. It might've been a bad investment.

No picture on the screen. Sound is working

This problem is hard to pinpoint as there are so many variables.
If I could ask you a few questions first: -What is the model of the display?-What other components are hooked up to it?-What cables are connecting these components to the TV (e.g.. HDMI, Component, Composite etc.)?-Are you using an external sound source (stereo) or the TV speakers for audio?-Do you see and indicators or the screen when you turn up/down the volume or change inputs? This is of course using the Samsung TV's remote.
I would try these things though:
1. Turn the TV off, unplug it from the power source for 30 seconds.2. Check the cables are all plugged in firmly and correctly.
3. Plug it back in and turn on the TV. Still no picture?
4. Try changing to another input (e.g. DVD, VCR, XBOX etc if you have one)3. Check on the Tv's remote to see if there is a "picture mute", "blanking" or similar button they may have been accidentally pressed. When you press it again, you will get picture back. If there is no button and still experiencing the same problem after checking all these things then you may have a fault.

I have a toshiba 42HL196. With HDMI cables hooked up, I have no picture when attempting to watch cable TV or use my DVD player. Everything works when I hook up using RCA cables. What is my problem?

By no picture, do you mean that you have sound? If yes then ensure that the tv and the DVD player/cable box is set to the same resolution as that of the tv. That should resolve the problem.

We just bought a new 32" panasonic led tv. Hooked everything up and works fine with normal television broadcast. However, we have a Sony DVD/VHS combo hooked up that doesn't perform well. When we play...

If you are using the composite cables (RWY) make sure the red and white are plugged into the audio jacks and NOT the component cable plugs (RGB.) If you have the red audio cable plugged into the red component plug this will cause issues, especially with the sound.

No sound on my Sanyo LCD 32" flat screen tv

I had this same problem this morning. Luckily, when I reset the whole thing and did the channel search again the sound returned. I have no idea why it fixed it but it did. Hope this helps you.

No picture

When our tv does this,it seems like it's warming up. Sometimes it will eventually come on. Sometimes not. We discovered by accident that turning the floor fan on it (towards the back) helps.I didn't think it was that dusty back there, yet it seems to make a difference.
