Is your remote programmed properly? If it is a universal remote, try setting it to one of the different codes for your brand. Sometimes the power and mute buttons and things like that are the same for all different types of a brand, yet all of the channel and volume things are different. If it's the remote that came with the TV, then I would try to get a replacement, as it could be faulty. Hopefully this problem is with the remote, and not the TV. Find if this is the case by using the volume/channel buttons on the TV itself. If they work, then you can be reasurred you don't have to call the TV repairman, and you will probably be able to fix this problem yourself.

Can't change channels stuck on 4 tried scanning it but it goes back to 4


There could be a few possibilities for this .:
  • Change the "Input" setting on the TV to "AV" or "VIDEO". There is probably an "INPUT" button on the remote.
  • Find the TV/VIDEO mode on your tv or check the back of the cable box where your cables screw into the unit. There is normally a switch to select an output for channel 3 or channel 4. Your's would be on 3. It's just a matter of switching to 4 to make it work on your tv. More info on this here:

Tv does not respond to any input only shows nosignal to any device


Did the TV's source get changed? If you use the Television remote and find the source or input button which switches between the video sources for your TV such as HDMI, A/V, Television Tuner,, VGA connector or Component video. If your using a cable box that remote only controls the cable box and possibly the TV power and volume but the cable box remote does not change the source input of the TV. Most Cable boxes rebroadcast their video on a specific TV channel and your TV must be set to that channel to receive the signal from the cable box. Let me know if this helps you out.

Won't channel up and down, stuck in input mode


Good morning Cheri
try restarting the tv, just disconnect all electricity for 30-60 sec.
connect again. If that does not work, Try set- up on the menu, if you get the apparatus to obey you and leave the input mode.
If that does not work I always restart the router and "exchange"box,
enjoy your day

TCL Blue Screen "No Media"


I have this tv, just had this exact problem and just fixed it. All this screen means is that you have pushed the "media" button on your remote and it's telling you that nothing is plugged in to your usb drive on the tv. If you plug in a usb key with pictures or video on it, you'll be able to view those from this screen. Otherwise, to exit this elusive "no media" screen, grab your remote and hit the button that says "tv" to get back to the blue screen that says "no signal" and from there, you should be able to hit the "input" button on the remote and switch between your inputs of choice. My favorite input is my apple tv plugged into hdmi 2. yay!

My buttonson my tv arec all volume and my channel is stuck on a setting and i cant get any channels.will a vcr fix the problem? will it put my tv back to hdmi?


If using cable you may be able to route signal to rear audio and video inputs--doubt a vcr will help.

disconnect power from set and or a box if used--wait several minutes and power up again--HDMI can cause issues and does not like connections being made if units are on.

I can't switch channels


Consult the owner manual (you can GOOGLE to find one with the model number if you do not have it) to see if the set has a feature to lock out channel being changed---this feature is on some sets so if using a box children etc cannot change the channel.

You can also try to route your signal to a rear audio/video input and change input to that input and change channels with the box if you use one.

I accidentally pressed a wrong button when I was changing back to TV after watching a video. then the screen became snowy and I'm unable to get back to TV mode. I need help!


Hello rgas,
do you know if you have cable or satellite? Look on your remote and for a button called input or source and click on it. Remember what input it is set on first then try changing through each input. See if you get anything. If nothing still, go back to the original input it was on and change the channel to channel 3. If you have cable or satellite, turn it on. If nothing appears, go to input/source scroll through each input and hopefully you should get a picture. Good luck.
