Question about TV Receivers & DVRs

Blue Screen Issue

I have a Yamaha 5.1 surround sound receiver (don't know model) connected to a Mitsubishi 50" rear projection TV. I have Cox cable. Issue: when watching cable channels, screen indiscriminately goes to blue screen (with sound OK). When I briefly power off the TV and power back on, it stops the blue screen and picture is restored but, it continues to happen. Funny thing is, I can watch DVDs and the problem does not occur. I've had Cox out and they have shown me that the BER on the cable box is very low and the signal strength is within tolerances.

What should I be looking at?

Try hooking all systems involved to the same electrical circuit, using a power strip if neccessary. also check your big screen and other equipment and make sure that any polarized plugs are in correctly. if you are an electrician, or know one, check the circuits that you're using to be sure the outlets are wired correctly. if the ground, neutral or power are not wired to the outlets properly it will seem to work, but not right. check the "cable line in" at the ground block with a multimeter for excessive power or get a qualified cable tech to check. when you touch the cable coming to the box or the tv and also touch the cable in do you feel a tingle? if so, it is most likely a power issue as mentioned above.

Buzzing noise comming from speakers when i have my cable audio out pluged into a receiver


I have the same problem. What I was told is to check to make sure that all your connections are not loosely plugged into the outlets. Or buy a surge protector which might help some.

I have a blue screen with a no signal on my tv with dish network how do i fix this


Hi. This is Phil with DISH Network. Sorry to hear that you are having an issue with the video, lets get that fixed. There are some thing we want to check first. Let's first make sure that both the TV, receiver, and everything in between, are powered on. Then we want to find out which channel your TV is on, this can be done by turning the TV off then back on again. If your TV is connected by a coax cable, for receivers with a TV1 output on the back panel: Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4 so that picture appears. For receivers with a Home Distribution output on the back panel (the TV without the receiver by it, or TV2) tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If non-coax, cycle through TV inputs until picture appears. These steps usually fix that issue; if they don't then check that the connections between your DISH receiver, your TV, and any component(s) (VCR, DVD Player, etc.) in between are secure. If the issue is only on one receiver, unplug the receiver for 10 seconds and plug back in, wait for the receiver to turn on by itself, usually withing 5 mins, and the picture should come in after that. If you have any follow up questions let me know.

Satellite Receiver to Yamaha Receiver


It sounds like either on the 612 or the Yamaha Receiver that the HDMI port is faulty, thus causing the flashing picture. It sounds like the 612 to the TV works fine. I would recommend replacing the Yamaha, and if problem persists then try replacing the 612.

Picture on tv good NO Sound a t and t cable service No blue ok screen to start


recheck your connections and make sure that you have a cable running from the receiver to the tv from the Audio/video jack. Most new units say to use your "S-Video" jack for sound and pic. As for blue screen...may be as simple as the channel it is selected. You may need the tv to be on 3 or 4 and the same for the receiver. try this and hope it works for you!

Setting up receive set top box and tv for surround sound


Plug the TV to an open channel on your receiver via this output:
*Rear, 1 x Digital audio output (coaxial) ( TOSLINK )
This will look like a single RCA output plug.
Set that input channel on your receiver to some sort of virtual surround mode because it doesn't look like your HDTV has a decoder in it (meaning it will come out stereo and the receiver will have to fake it).
Turn the volume all the way down on the TV and use the receiver to control TV volume just as you do with DVDs.

*Substitute this with the digital audio output on your set top box if you are sending video only to the TV from the set top box (component, DVI or s-video connections). So video goes to the TV, audio to the receiver.

Connections


You will need a Digital Optical cable to hook it to the JVC. You should use a Component video cable to hook it to the TV.
