Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

Direct TV tried to install cable but were unable to get the input wires to work. The input doesn't work with a dvd player either. It was working recently, but we moved it to an apartment and during the move the TV was not dropped or damaged. When the TV is on, you can change the input and see at the top that it is changing from "input 1", "input 2", etc... and when the channels on the tv are pushed the picture is snowy, but its like the inputs don't work and you cant get a picture from a dvd, vcr, cable, etc..

SOURCE: cant get dvd to work

Hi, Do a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a couple of hours. Most current models will reset to default condition this way. If this does not correct the fault, pls post back with the brand/model/version of your unit. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: I cannot get a signal on my Phillips 50

if you haven't unplugged the unit for 30 seconds, try that. otherwise, if that doesn't help, probably a board needs to be replaced. call phillips for service.

SOURCE: mintex 37 inch wide screen. remote is working however cannot change channel, input source or volum. only turns tv off. The buttone on tv doesnot work connot change input source or volume

Check if the remote is in TV position, that is, because most of the remote controllers have the feature that you can program them for use with another devices. Make shure that one button that says "TV" in pressed and released once before you try to change any function on the TV.

SOURCE: Can not access menu or input functions

Hi rduncan27,
I will be happy to help. 88% of LCD tv problems are with the backlight, the symptoms you described indicate a probable inverter malfunction. Lets do a simple test to check the functionality.

  1. Get the tv to a point that it is producing sound.
  2. Take a flashlight and shine it on the screen.
  3. Look very closely for a dark video image.
Let me know your findings and we can proceed from there.

It's possible that you have a faulty component on one of the circuit boards inside your tv.

It sounds like your backlight is working OK since the screen is lit up despite having no video so the fault is either with the MAIN BOARD, the POWER SUPPLY BOARD, or the LCD CONTROLLER BOARD (otherwise known as the TCON BOARD).

Does the sound work properly for any of the inputs or is that blank as well?

Was there a power failure or brief power flicker that you noticed at your home recently?
These can precipitate failures as the LCD TVs are succeptible to power fluctuations.

Is your TV still under warranty?

Are you willing and capable to unscrew and open up the case to the tv to conduct a visual inspection and some basic troubleshooting?

One asy thing you can try before starting the hardware / circuit board troubleshooting is to unplug the power cable to your set and leave it out overnight. Plug it back in the next day and try turning it on again to see if the fault was cleared by the reset.

If that does not solve the problem then just comment back here to this page with the answers to the above questions and I will go into much greater detail about the various troubleshooting procedures you can employ to diagnose the problem with your tv.

Thank you very much and good luck.

Joe.

Trying to hook up the dvd player to the home tv. Can't figure out which cables go where to get it to work. We have direct Tv.


Use yellow/white/red Composite cable to connect Player directly to an available A/V input on the back (or front or side) of the TV, just match the colors of the cable to the color of the plugs. You will now need to use the TVs remote to set the TV on the appropriate "Input". This button may also be labeled "Source" or "A/V". Make sure the player is on at this point. That's it!

Hope I helped!

I am unable to get my vcr to record. To use my vcr i have to turn my tv to channel 3. Our cable company uses channel 4. Please help


If the tv is working with the cable box with the coax to channel 4 ( then with this configuration to send any signal to the VCR actually it is posible to use a splitter with coax and send the signal to the tv and vcr after the cable box. vcr has tobe in channel 4 also, all channel selection is done in the cable box then anything you see in the tv is recorded in vcr. BUT guess what: You maybe can try something else:
If you send the cable from the wall straight to the splitter and then from splitter to the TV and to VCR, now you can record differnt channel than you are watching in the tv but in this case scenario you need to send the vcr to the video input 1 of the tv to play what is record. Any way to install this TV and VCR you not always need to depend in the cable box.
