Question about Televison & Video

9 Answers

My Sanyo TV DS25204 is stuck in Video mode.

My TV has worked OK for four years on cable. I played a DVD movie on it yesterday. Now I can't get it our of Video mode to work on TV. I use
a universal DVR remote (Synergy IV) for it.

    No, the buttons on my TV are: Menu, Channel up
    and down, volume up and down, and Power

  • William Kershaw Jun 27, 2008

    All the buttons you mentioned are on my remote
    control, but the only reaction I get is that the TV turns off and on when I press the channel button. When I press the Video Source button, the CBL red light goes on and off.

    Another thing, when I turn the TV on, the cable box shows a number-4801 and a clock face. It
    never did this before!

  • William Kershaw Jun 27, 2008

    When I click the tv button on the remote, the
    TV goes off. When I reclick it, the TV goes
    back on, but still showing the word Video in
    the upper right corner. There is no opportunity to change to Channel 4, which is
    what I need to get TV reception.

  • William Kershaw Jun 27, 2008

    I tried the volume control on the remote and the
    word Video disappears and the volume changes (if
    I have a DVD on). But then the word Video
    comes back on the screen.

  • William Kershaw Jun 27, 2008

    I have disconnected the remote and the cable connection and I used the TV buttons. Nothing
    different happens.

  • William Kershaw Jun 27, 2008

    to bestdarngood: No, the DVD player is not a combo vcr-dvd. It is now disconnected and so
    is the Cable control box, but the TV is still doing the same things. I think I will have to take it to a local repair shop. I am afraid
    that none of you have been able to solve my
    problem. It is now 10:00 PM and I will go to bed. I will check my e-mail in the morning to
    see if any of you can find any solution.

  • William Kershaw Jun 27, 2008

    I unplugged the TV and everything else overnight
    and just tried it again this morning. Still I
    have the same problem.
    I will go to a repair shop today and if I can't
    get an answer, I will buy a new TV.

Hi,it is possible that the remote has lost its code.It may be worth re entering it. Have you tried scrolling the channel button on the Tv to get back channels? You havent mentioned you tried that yet.

My first guess would be that the universal remote has gotten confused and is no longer sending the correct codes for your TV. Try replacing the batteries on the remote and reprogramming for your TV model. The TV/Video button should not work as expected.

Try a hard reset of the TV: unplug it from the AC power source and any other inputs like cable/DVD, etc for at least 4 hours. Reconnect everything after 4 hours and see if it works.

If not, it looks like a problem with the circuitry, for which I would recommend seeking professional repair.

Try resetting the cable box by unplugging it for 10 minutes to see if it will revert to default settings. Check with your manufacturer of the box to see what the numbers mean as this will be unique to the exact box. Did you have any recent power surges or anything out of the ordinary?

    Also, is this a vcr/dvd player that you were using? Have you tried unplugging the tv until it reset? Are you getting channels through the assumed vcr that is connected?

    Try leaving it unplugged overnight to see if it will reset the tv

    Do the buttons on the tv work at all? If not then, I believe that the control unit may have a short

Try this :

  1. Try changing the volume with the volume control. If it changes the data bus is not the problem. This is assuming the TV is tuned to a good TV station.
  2. Mark the EXACT position of the screen/G2 control with a marker. Then turn the G2 control up.
    • If the picture unblanks and a gray scale bar pattern is used, you can usually see which CRT gun is weak. Time to replace the CRT for a long term fix. All of the temporary fixes I have tried resulted in only a few months extra life out of the tube.
    • If the picture does not unblank and it looks kind of like there is a halo near the top of the screen. The vertical circuit needs checked for proper operation and repaired. WARNING do not continue to operate the TV set in this mode for any length of time, it will crack the CRT from localized heating!!!! (because the guns are shooting into the extreme top of the tube and possible the neck of the tube) RETURN the G2 control to the exact position that was marked before you started.
The typical failure mode of the vertical circuit in a Sony causes only one of the vertical supply resistors to open usually. Either the +15 V or -15 V. This puts a full + or -15 V on the yoke which deflects the guns into the glass envelope of the tube.

Hope that helps.......

When you played the movie, you would have changed the channel from TV or AV to Video, in the bottom left hand corner, you should find a button that says "Video Source", make sure that the setting for this is to your TV.

At the top of your remote, you should find two buttons that say "TV" and "CBL", try both of these to see if you get a picture on your TV Screen.

In the middle of your remote, you should find a button that says "CH", try using this to switch between channels to find the channel your TV would be displayed on.

    Hi there

    You should try and turn off your DVD player, this should automatically switch it back to TV Mode, if this doesn't help, i would suggest that you bypass the DVD Player by disconnecting the Cable from your DVD Player and plugging it strait into your TV.

Scree is blue and says Video as if were going to play one. I did not put it in that mode and I cannot get it back in TV mode.


Go to your menu on your tv, go to inputs, check for right setting, no problem, connect a player and try to play a movie, if movie plays and TV is on cable or HDMI. Tv needs to be reset to factory settings.

Fix tv picture


If the TV is receiving its signal from a cable TV box or DVR then you need to find out if the problem is in the TV or the cable box/DVR. Connect a different source to your TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a DVD movie. If the problem occurs again it suggests the TV needs repair. If the TV works OK when playing a DVD movie then that suggests that your cable box/DVR needs repair or replacement.
If your TV is receiving its signal directly from an antenna or cable outlet on the wall then you should try replacing the cable wire from the wall to the TV with a new wire. If that doesn't help then your TV probably needs repair or replacement.

Open your left eye ...
OK, just kidding. If your TV or its remote control has a Reset button you can press it twice to reset the TV to original factory conditions (but you lose all customised picture and sound settings). If the TV receives its signal from a cable box or DVR, try connecting a different device such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a movie disc. If the problem on your TV screen still exists that suggests the TV needs repair or replacement. If the picture is OK when playing a DVD movie that suggests that your cable box or DVR is faulty and needs replacing (usually free from the cable TV company).

DVD Plays in Black and White


Depending what cables you have, try plugging only the yellow cable into "video out", I previously had red, white, and yellow cables plugged into "comopents out" and only got black and white. Doing only the yellow into video out gave me color.
