Have a westinghouse lcd tv 50inch model ew50t5kw and would like to know before changing any parts or boards what causes a blue screen no sound or picture


  1. Frank: Verizon. com says try this: Change your VCR's Channel to 3 or 4. Most blue screen issues are caused by the VCR not being set to Channel 3 or 4. If changing the VCR's channel (using the channel buttons on the VCR or from the VCR remote control) did not change your TV screen, go to step 2.
  2. Make sure your TV is not in Video mode. There are three possible ways to change your TV's mode using your TV remote control: 1) Press a Mode button, toggle through the options and select TV, 2) Press a Video button to change your TV's mode from Video to TV or 3) Press Menu, locate Mode or Audio/Video setup and select TV from one of the options. If you are not sure how to change your TV's mode, see your TV's user guide for more information.
  3. Check to make sure your set-top box is plugged in and turned on.
  4. Check to see if other TVs (connected to different outlets) have a blue screen. If they do, contact the Verizon Fiber Solutions Center.

I have a apex 32-inch tv model (AT3208S), This tv was connect to a converter box, the other day electric power went out in our area for about 8 mins or less, once the power was back on the tv screen was...


OK, I have one of these TVs, and here's a thought: There's nothing wrong with the TV nor with the cable converter box. Please bear with me. Since I don't know how much you may know about TVs in general and this one in particular, I'm going to assume you know nothing and go from there.

This TV has several different "inputs", which are ways a signal can be transferred from its source to the TV, where it "outputs" the video image. I believe this particular TV has 5 different inputs: In descending order of the quality of the video signal, there're one S-video input (a 4-pin video connector plus red & white audio), three composite video inputs (3 connectors each: yellow video and red/white audio--audio connectors are the same for both s-video and composite), and one coax connector (a single large screw-on connector with a little wire sticking up through the center of it) for a total of five different inputs.

The problem with these Apex TVs is that they always default to the Antenna/coax input first when they are restarted. Most people use the TV to display an input signal (like the cable box or a DVD player) connected either to the S-video or to one of the 3 composite video inputs, not to the coax input, which just displays the channel numbers from 1-125 when it's set to do that (hit the "display" button on your remote to toggle showing the channel numbers for the coax input). If there's no signal coming into the coax input, the screen with appear blue. (If it's blue, it simply means it's not getting a signal via the input to which the TV is currently set. You can turn off the blue screen in the menu settings, but then you'll just get a blank screen. It's probably better just to leave the screen blue; at least you can tell the TV's actually trying to display something that way.)

You have to manually select the proper input by pressing the "video" button either on the remote (lower right corner) or the "video" button directly on the TV (hidden control panel under the middle of the margin around the bottom of the TV screen. You'll have to press on the door, and the whole control panel rolls open to reveal another set of composite inputs and some buttons. The video button is the one farthest to the left.)

Anyhow, by pressing the video buttons, you'll cycle through the various inputs. Assuming your cable converter box is functioning properly, powered on, receiving a signal from the cable company, and connected to the TV via a(n) appropriate wire(s) connected correctly, you should see the output from the cable box on the screen when you cycle through to display the proper video input.

Another possibility: the power outage fried the input to which your cable box was connected on the back of the TV. If that's the case, your cable box would probably also have sustained damage. You can check to see if the various video inputs on the TV are working by connecting different source inputs (like a BluRay/DVD/VCR player, video game console, video camera, etc.) to one of the other inputs and see if you get a picture when the TV is set to the appropriate inputs. (Remember, the "video" button is what selects/changes/cycles through the various video inputs.) One of the sets of inputs went bad on my TV. I just use the other ones.

Input select sttting


Normally, your TV or VCR is probably set to display the television channels you watch, through a standard cable input. In order to play your Nintendo using the A/V cables, we need to tell your TV or VCR to switch from the normal tv channels, and instead display the signal coming in from the A/V cables of your Nintendo system. There is no one particular way to do this, as it varies between brands, but below is some information that may help.
Quick Tip: Grab the original remote control for the TV or VCR you have plugged your Nintendo into, and look for a button that could be labeled:
  • TV/Video
  • Input Select
  • Line or Line In
  • Source
  • AUX (auxiliary)
  • EXT (external)
  • any other button that seems to indicate it would switch between the TV signal and the game system.
If the above tips did not help, it is possible your Input Select is a little more difficult to locate. Here are some other common ways to access an Input Select:
  • A button on the front of your TV or VCR located behind a door or a hidden panel, or located on the original remote control that came with the device. If you are using a universal remote, it may not work when pressing the "input select" button. If it does not work, try to locate the original remote.
  • A high or low end channel. Try channel surfing through every channel, even the ones that do not normally broadcast a TV show. Many times the input select is a high channel such as 90, 91, 92, 93, 99, or even 999. You should also try low channels such as 0, 00,001, 1 or even 2. For some televisions, you may need to manually select these channels by using the keypad on the TV or remote control.
  • Found within an on-screen menu. Search the menu for words such as Input, Setup or Source. Select one of these words, and another menu will usually appear that asks you to select between TV and either AV, AUX or Line. Select AV, AUX or Line to display the Nintendo game.
If you are still unable to find your input select, you may want to consult the operation manual that came with your TV or VCR, or contact the manufacturer directly.

TV stuck on blue video screen


This usually happens when you are on a source that doesn't have a signal such as a channel with no signal or an AV input that is not connected.

You should look for a button that has TV/VCR or TV/VIDEO on it. I've guessing that you've already tried to change the channel but if not try that.

Last ditch effort in that case may be to unplug the TV for a few secouds. Warning- this may wipe out any settings you have entered such as the channel programming (which channels to skip while surfing) but along with that goes the blue screen.

Problem programming Zenith Digital TV Converter DTT901 remote.


Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable.  The Installation  Guide should appear.  The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.

Hey mcca,

In many cases, blue screens on TV's can be the result of the TV being in the wrong video mode or another device (like an attached VCR) being on the wrong station.

First, I would suggest testing to make sure that your TV is in the correct video mode and station. Depending on how many devices are directly connected you to your TV, you may need to cycle through one or two video mode settings using your remote control before the DVD menu can be displayed. Typically this can be done by pressing the "Menu" or "Input" button on most remote controls, but you may wish to refer to your owner's manual for instructions how to do so with your specific model TV. In some cases, the primary video input station is even set to channel 3 or 4 by default.

If you are sure that the TV is on the right input setting (and your DVD player is connected to a VCR), I would next suggest making sure that your VCR is on the right channel. Many VCR's will also require that the channel be set on 3 or 4 in order to display any images being sent through them by a secondary device, like a DVD player or video game console. Additionally, it may even be necessary to change the input setting from "TV" to "VCR" to display signals from an attached device. Again, you would need to refer to your owner's manual documentation for specific instructions.

Lastly, if you use an RF modulator or video signal switch for any devices in your home theater, you may want to make sure that they are on the correct settings.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

If there is no button on the TV to go to the video channel or channel 3/4, you'll have to buy a universal remote.
