TV not listed as AV signal source

Has been working fine, but one morning went to turn it on and screen black. Discovered "TV" is no longer listed at the top when you push the 'AV signal source' button on the remote. It's like it no longer recognizes the tv. Nothing had been touched.

Have Sanyo DP50740 Plasma tv and Dish Network receiver. This morning I turned TV on and receiver on and Black screen appeared on TV with floating no signal box with white letters. I do not have the t


Check the TV first by tuning it to an external RF source; ie; on-air program by connecting it to external Ariel and make sure that the TV is OK. If the TV works fine with on-air program, the Dish Network receiver is either fault, of it do not get input signal.

52" RCA Rear Projection TV- When turn on the screen seems to be split in 3 horizontal bars all scrolling. The color doesn't seem to be there either, but hard to tell. When I put up the menu


Good Morning
if you remove the signal either being HDMI or Av Cables from the source are the bars still there ? if they are id suspect a signal board problem . if there not try unplugging your signal source for 5 min's and then do a restart if problem still exists then contact your service provider for further assistance .

Black screen with sound


My 47" LCD Smart T.V. was working fine last night. I got up this morning and I have sound but no picture. The VIZIO icon lights up as usual but I get no picture, only sound. From the time I turned it on, nothing appeared on the screen. I have already tried unplugging it for a while and still nothing.

LCD Scree went blank/black


No problem. Discovered that fix by accident when my camera did the same thing. Since the screen was blank, tried arranging camera setting using the camera's AV cable with the TV, and discovered that fixed it. Apparently corrosion builds up on the AV cable plug switch (which also turns the screen off when inserted), and inserting/removing the plug several times can fix it.

The dogs rolled on the remote and the tv went to a blue screen and turned off. Every time you turn the tv on now it is a blue screen and says no signal and turns off after 10 seconds


This sounds as if when the dog rolled on your remote he has pressed the source button so that you are no longer on the TV cahnnel. The TV is looking for a different input eg. AV1/AV2/HDMI etc. This will give you a blue screen & as there is no signal the TV will switch off. Check on the remote for an Input or TV/AV or source button & make sure this is set for the TV signal.

Nothig bu a blue screen shows when turned on


Blue screen of Death?
No, this is not windoze.

can you change channels?
a blue screen usually means that you don't have a signal.
Is it hooked up through dvd/vcr player?

Try a straight connection to cable or antenna.

If it remains, then it requires surgery.

Screen went black


Remove the front grey bottom panel of you TV (don't forget the 2 screws behind the front AV cover located just below the power button) then remove the panel behind the grey panel. You should see 2 heat sinks on the front right of your TV, place a fan near your TV and have it blowing on the heat sinks. Now turn on your TV and see if it stays on longer then it has been. If it does, your DC amps might be overheating. If they are, you might be able to fix your problem by adding in a little more heat sink compound between your DC amps and the heat sink itself. You can find the compound at Radio Shack for about $5. let me know if pointing a fan directly on the heat sinks helps.
