Assuming out of the box congiguration, there is no "TV" channel, it is most likely connected via RCA cables (yell, wht, red), composite (R<G<B) or HDMI. You should run thru the inputs on the TV not change the channel.

Please rate.

I have Philips DVDR7260H recorder where the guide plus system will not set up. I have done as insructed on automatic and with manual setting with host channel set to bid up tv channel 23with no lck . C...


Firstly, my DVDR7260 (so I guess yours too) can only use analogue channel updates so it should be set to ITV, that is channel 03 (if you have usual analogue channels tuned). BUT by now that suggestion is redundant as Guide Plus updates have been stopped since 1st Jan 2011 as part of the Digital switch-over. Nice one! If anyone knows how to invoke the Freeview EPG on the DVDR7260, that may be the one thing to keep it out of the bin.

How do i change the setting to 1080p


the tv will automatically switch to 1080p if its capable of displaying 1080p when the signal is supplied. currently only blue ray dvd players, playstation 3, and certain satelite recievers can output 1080p signals.

Technika tv lcd 19-907 tuning in to sky in bedroom.


Hi i had the same problem but i have sorted mine now. What i was doing wrong was i wasnt tuning in the analoge channels only the freeview digital ones. To do this you need to first turn your tv on. Then press the "source" button, this will bring up a little menu at the top left hand side. When this menu comes up press the "Programme +" button (the one that you use for changing channels near the volume button) press this until you get up to "TV", when T.V is highlighted just wait 3 secs and it will switch over. You will probably get a blue screen with a no signal message (you are now on analogue) when you get this blue screen press the "tune" button. It will automatically start tuning in all of your channels, at first they will be fuzzy but as it works they will become clearer. Your sky channel will also be tuned in. When mine tuned in it didnt tune them in on the right numbers though, bbc2 was on number 1 etc. If you ever need to use a playstation or something it goes into the scart connection at the side of the t.v and you need to press "source" and go up to "scart". To get back onto the digital channels just press "dtv/dvd".
hope i helped!

PS3 no longer communicating with TV


All: Try this -

P
erform the following steps to reset the Video Output Settings.
  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the [HDMI OUT] port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the [HDMI Input] port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive On/Off button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light to --> green light --> then back to red light) This will ensure that you have held down the On/Off button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn ON the PLAYSTATION 3 and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor). [If resetting does not auto-detect your HDTV, see next step below.]
NOTE: As of system software update version 1.60, the PLAYSTATION 3can automatically detect an HDMI connection to a TV. If the PLAYSTATION 3 is turned on with an HDMI cable connected, the screen for switching video output settings will be displayed automatically. (Does not function unless the TV that is connected by the HDMI cable is turned on.)

As of version 1.80 of the system update for the PLAYSTATION 3, the PLAYSTATION 3 can upscale the video content of PlayStation® format software, PlayStation®2 format software, and DVDs to HD resolution.

If Resetting the Video Output Setting Did NOT Detect Your HDTV Automatically (Certain TV's Only)
With certain televisions, the PLAYSTATION 3 may not automatically detect the HDMI source (TV) which it is plugged into, even after resetting the Video Output Setting (as described above).

If resetting the Video Output Setting did not work, you may need to follow these steps to manually locate the HDMI source:

1. Connect both the AV Cable and the HDMI cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 to the corresponding (AV and HDMI) ports on your TV. 2. Proceed with resetting the Video Output Setting on the PLAYSTATION 3 again. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 3 below.)
3. Turn the TV channel to the corresponding "Input" or "Video" channel for the AV Cable connection.
4. Manually change the Video Output Settings to HDMI. (Follow these steps, then continue to step 5 below.)
5. Now switch the "Input" or "Video" channel on the TV for the HDMI port the PLAYSTATION 3 is currently plugged into.
6. Accept the display settings for HDMI before the timer runs out (30 seconds). Highlight "Yes" and press the X button.
7. You can now disconnect AV Cable from the PLAYSTATION 3 and the TV, as it is no longer needed.

Got wet


Most likely he sprayed the screen, and the fluid dripped down onto the board where the pushbuttons are. The pushbuttons them became contaminated and shorted out inside. Usually, the damage done will not be reversed by drying the set out. He should not feel bad, though, because we see adults doing that all the time. The TV has not "had it", since it is quite easy to correct. The board should be cleaned and any defective pushbuttons replaced by a qualified tech.
