The screen is blue with "VIDEO" displayed tried everything I could possibly think of. Manual channels won't change either so I can't even watch a video, ironic isn't it. The only remote I use for the TV is the COX cable remote. It is an older TV maybe 5 years old. Any assistance would be great.

Hi. Switch off (mains switch) the VCR. Then see if you can change channels with your TV remote. Blue screen mostly means that no channel has been programmed. If there is , you should at least have the sound. So, if you have sound, there is an internal problem in the TV. If no sound appears, try to get into setup mode (button Menu)
and programm your channels. I suppose there is signal on your normal areal connection. Check this out with another TV set, or use the tuner from you VRC. I know there are a lot of possibilities, but you can sort this out, step by step. Good luck.
I have just got a kv-20s43 and your best bet is to try to restore settings, here, To reset TV to factory settings, turn the TV on, Then, while pressing the reset button on the remote control, press POWER on the TV. The TV will turn itself off, then back on, the original settings wiill be restored... definition: ch. fix- 2-6: Select when you want to control all channel selection through a cable box. Select the appropriate channel(usually 3 or 4) and use the cable box's remote control for channel selection. VIDEO: select from available inputs when you have connected video equipment and you want your TV fixed to it.
A POSSIBLE solution. I have the same stet...got it used, but it's in good condition.
It was stuck on a channel. I went iinto the menu and fiddled with the channel programs and "deleted" the channel and now I can freely change channels.
By the way, I could use a manual for this ...got one?
Yippie, I figured out a solution that worked!!! I have a univeral remote from comcast, on that remote near the bottom left is a small button that says (input) tv/vcr, press that one time and whala!! the tv video screen was gone, I had to manually change the channel from the tv channel button on the unit. once I changed the channel to 3, my universal remote worked... the button is the second one from the bottom left... I was on hold with sanyo for a long time and just kept trying on my own, so good luck!!!!
blue screen indicares that there is a problem in blue cathode circuit.
1 blue video output supply.
2 blue video ckt defective
3 signal from chroma ic to blue cathode missing.
4 loose connector
5 crt base loose.
6 chroma ic defective.
I think sound will be ok .
Sounds like it is changing to another video mode that has no input so the screen is blue. On many tv's the channel buttons also act as video input button. This should happen with the buttons on the tv. If you are using the the remote I am not sure why it is acting like a video input button. Try changing video to tv with one and changing the stations with the other. I take it you are watching antenna tv and not using cable box or satellite. If this does not work and you have old vcr just use it as a tuner to change your channels.
wepu, Buddy it sounds like you got a power supply problem. As you say the picture is all blue?? With no video or sound and the fact that the channel display is out is the first indication that i would guess this. Do you still have the owners manual that you got when you first got the set? Good, cause thats the only place i can think of where to look in case of service over in your part of the world as I did try!! Man I tryed but to no avail. No one has heard of this model but that dosent mean that it dos'ent exsit!.. If your a tech or know your way around solid state circuitry then you should have no problem finding the fault once you get a service manual from the service location in your owners manual. Now if your not a tech and a handy man ?? If I were you I wouldnt mess with the tv as theres over 25000 volts inside the set and i've seen it make a grown man cry. Man dont attempt the repair or troubleshooting if you dont have the right or proper tools and equipment!!! Good Luck
