Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Magnovox tv/vcr combo that I am trying to use the antenna on but it will only let me switch back and forth between Aux or channel 3. I do not have the remote. Is that my problem? Will a universal remote have a button on it that will help with my problem? Thanks

Yes a universal control should solve your problem but I would try to connect my tv to my vcr or dvd and my antenna to my vcr or dvd as well then change your channels thru your vcr or dvd!

Digital tv tuner not displaying picture


. Try putting you tv set to channel 3 or 4. Try your tv in all modes. Check the back also to see if in the right spots with the wires. Check your channel scan status, try it on anntena and try it on cable, run channel scan on both. good luck. Try vcr wires if cable wires dont work. vcr wires are yellow red and white. Try another cable cord sometimes they get old. Try looking at your remote and setting it to tv.

What is the channel selection for the video input connections on the GT2015DV Model Tv/DVD combo?


Auxiliary video input like a DVD or VCR player can be picked up on two channels only, channel 3 or channel 4, the factory setting is 3 by default.

Sony KP-53XBR45 rear projection TV: Coax input Selector Antena part on rear has the AUX input 'male' connector but the TV/Cable 'male' connection end is missing. Is there a way to use the AUX or any other...


You can replace the connector or if you have a cable box with audio and video outputs on it---connect them into one of the sets of jacks on the back of the set--switch to that input and change channels with the box----you can also do the same thing with a VCR--hook the cable into it and use its video and audio output jacks to connect to the video and audio input on the back of the TV.

In this case (the VCR does not have to work except as a tuner) you will go to whatever input you connect to and use the VCR to change channels.

These are a little less easy to use but costs you nothing---I am here to help, if you have any questions or need help let me know.

Big Blur when i turn the tv on


Hi!

First of all please check the following things:

Press the TV button. Make sure the TV is plugged in. Check the wall receptacle (or extension cord) to make sure it is “live” by plugging in something else. Something might be wrong with your remote control. Press the POWER button on the front of the TV. If the TV turns on, check the remote control solutions. The front panel controls may be locked (disabled). Use the remote control to unlock the front panel controls by selecting the Front Panel Block in the Parental Control menu and press OK to uncheck the box. The TV might be performing a periodic diagnostic check. Wait for a few minutes for the TV to turn on.

If still the problem persists then check the following:

Maybe the cable/air function is set to the wrong position. The channel might be blank — change channels. If you’re watching your VCR and it’s connected with coaxial cable to the CABLE/ANTENNA jack, tune the TV to channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel is selected on the 3/4 switch on the back of your VCR). Also check to make sure the TV/VCR button on the VCR is in the correct mode (press the TV/VCR button on your VCR). Check antenna connections. Make sure all of the cables are firmly connected to the jacks. Try adjusting sharpness function to improve weak signals. Closed-captioning might be on. Check Closed Caption in the Setup menu.

Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Tv/vcr combo wrong cable channels


This could be one of two problems, either the TV tuner card is set up to accept the wrong type of signals (which normally can be changed in the menu of the television) or the card isn't capable of translating the signal (with most cable companies going over to digital signals with their boxes translating the signals over.) My suggestion is to check to make sure the proper signal type is set in your menu (if in fact this is even an option for this particular television) and if that doesn't work get a generic analog digital cable box.

I have lost the normal tv channels on all 3 of my TV's (bbc 1 bbc 2 itv channel 4 through the aerial) but freeview channel are still working on AV. any ideas?


If you have all 3 tv's in the one house and on the one antenna then it sounds like you have been subject to either a lightning strike or a large static discharge onto your antenna. What this means is that the tuner packs in the back of the tv's has been damaged and will need to be replaced. However as you have said in your question they do work using an av input. This will be your cheapest option to get them working again. Buy cheap vcr's for them and connect via av cables, as the tuner modules are expensive to buy and even more so to have fitted.

Digital to analog converter box to tv/vcr combo


You will need a splitter and an rf modulator to do timed recording of programs. The instructions are on the dtv answers website, option # 2, record and watch a different channel. The recording is for the analog stations 1-24. You cannot record the higher stations. The items I purchased were a 3 way splitter $7 at local hardware store, an rf modulator $25 at Radio Shack. The other option was to get a cable box for the tv and record off of that at $6.95 a month or a DVR for $8.99 per month, all from comcast. The price that I paid for the items I needed would be repaid in 3 months if I were to go the comcast route. The conversion is nothing more than a money making scheme for them.

"Normal" picture option is gone


Have you switched inputs? Some sets when you are on component/ HDMI/DVI will only allow a couple of PIX modes, Antenna will usually allow you to use all of your modes, If you have a cable box they sometimes will also have format modes. Try switching to cable channel 3 (if you get it or have a box on that) and changing format, try a VCR or something if no cable ch 3.
