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.

Frank: Verizon. com says try this: Change your VCR's Channel to 3 or 4. Most blue screen issues are caused by the VCR not being set to Channel 3 or 4. If changing the VCR's channel (using the channel buttons on the VCR or from the VCR remote control) did not change your TV screen, go to step 2.
Make sure your TV is not in Video mode. There are three possible ways to change your TV's mode using your TV remote control: 1) Press a Mode button, toggle through the options and select TV, 2) Press a Video button to change your TV's mode from Video to TV or 3) Press Menu, locate Mode or Audio/Video setup and select TV from one of the options. If you are not sure how to change your TV's mode, see your TV's user guide for more information.
Check to make sure your set-top box is plugged in and turned on.
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.
This usually happens when you are on a source that doesn't have a signal such as a channel with no signal or an AV input that is not connected.
You should look for a button that has TV/VCR or TV/VIDEO on it. I've guessing that you've already tried to change the channel but if not try that.
Last ditch effort in that case may be to unplug the TV for a few secouds. Warning- this may wipe out any settings you have entered such as the channel programming (which channels to skip while surfing) but along with that goes the blue screen.
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 .
The bluescreen is an indicator of "lack or absence of a video signal". In TV mode this would only come on if your reception quality is so poor that the TV "thinks" there is more interference/noise than intelligent video signal nd therefore mutes the video. In all other modes, (S Video, A/V Video etc), again, this muting action will result in the bluescreen if the TV "thinks" it is not receiving any video input.
To try and fix this would either be:
1. Check and verify that you have a video signal coming into the TV by trying your video source (DVD, cable box) into another TV unit; or
2. Check and verify that your connectors at the back of the TV and the source are properly connected and are snug/fitted properly.
If both fails, it is possible that you have component failure inside the TV and that would require the services of a qualified TV professional.
Hope this be of help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
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
