Question about Emerson Televison & Video

1 Answer

We are having problems with our Emerson HDTV HDMI flat screen 42". We go to turn it on; the picture won't come up and it shows a blue screen. We have tried unplugging the cable from the tv and that didn't work; after unplugging the cable and hooking it back up and we go to scan for channels it didn't work, all it give us is a blue screen and we have gone back and forth with your company and Walmart. We purchased the tv back in June of 2008 with warranty. Can anyone help us with this situation and stop us from having to purchase another tv we like the Emerson products for our home is stocked with Emerson products. Help us please.

SOURCE: how to run channel auto scan

Okay here's how you do it. Sadly they buried this DEEP in the user guide and I stumbled across it -

Press the TV Menu button then with the < or > arrows scroll to the Channel menu. From there you can select the auto scan.

You need to replace the microprocessor. GoodLuck there is 52 pins to unsolder and resolder a new one. The price for the chip may bee about $35

SOURCE: My digital stream converter box DTX9900 was purchased on 8/7/08

My (otherwise great...) DTX9900 converter box died with these same symptoms. (Units green LED flashes continuously and unit is dead)

Upon inspecting the unit I located a blown electrolytic capacitor on it's power supply board. After replacing the blown capacitor the converter has worked fine. A blown capacitor can be identified visually. The canister's top will be expanded out instead of flat. Just compare all of the caps. Look for any that are not flat on top. Blown caps will usually be discolored. The bad cap in my unit was a 330uf / 16v - 105c value cap. I replaced it with a slightly superior brand 330uf / 25v - 105c cap.

SOURCE: Sony Wega Trinitron HDTV Blue Screen with Sound

It means the TV does not receive signal from the box. Try the follow step to isolate the problem.
Use the same HDMI cable from cable box and hook up to another TV that has HDMI input (if any). If it works fine (picture and sound), HDMI cable no problem. If it does not, problem might come either from the cable box or HDMI. You may have to buy another one. If it still does not, call the cable box or the Best buy guy. Hope it helps.

Testimonial: "Swapping cables didn't work so I called the cable company, walked me through resetting the box, which seems to have solved the problem. Thanks."

Emerson 42 inch television flat screen HDTV: i connected a DVI to HDMI cable to dell computer screen to television in order to display computer screen to it but the signal isn't working, how do i...

Your Dell Monitor does not have a video output. The DVI/HDMI cable needs to run from the DVI-Out of you computer tower directly to the TVs HDMI input, ideally one with a red/white analog audio input next to it, because that cable only provides a video signal. If you don't have a DVI out on your computer, perhaps your TV has a VGA input. If your computer/video card only has one monitor connector, then you can only connect the Monitor OR the TV.
