There is q button on the remote titled' Source/AV' which usually enables me to switch from DVT/USB to Ext 1 or Ext 2 or PC-VGA it has suddenly failed to operate unless I switch of from the mains and switch back on - as you can imagine this is most inconveniant! How can I turn the source button back on without resorting to the on-off switching?

Hi.

First disconnect TV power cord for ten minutes (or so) . Also disconnect power cord of any device connected to the TV from outlet. Also remove remote batteries for one minute, that will reset the remote. Do not forget to turn off TV and devices before disconnecting from wall socket.

If that does not work, then the problem may be given by one of the two devices connected to the TV. Test both disconnecting first EXT1, then EXT2. Test with either one disconnected.

If you still have no luck after doing the above, then either the remote, or the board including the IR sensor (located inside tv) may be defective. In that case the TV must be tested by a technician to find out.

How do I change from Digital to Analog TV?


source mode,(button on tv usually next to menu) tv menu ( usually first page at top of screen), . or tv/dtv on remote ( some times just say DVT on it but you press it twice to go analog ) it all depends on your tv, also depends if the system on the tv has been updated some tv's when the change over happens, remove analog settings so there is no analog on the tv just digital. you can buy an analog box that will fit to the av socket or just connect a old video to the scart socket and get analog that way.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Hi,

Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

Regards,
BElectric

Sky hd remote code needed please


Sky High Definition SkyHD uses a new design of Slim line remote control. The Default TV code pre-programmed into the RCU is now for Phillips and is (0)065. The SkyHD RCU is programmed in the usual manner using either the instructions in the Digital Installation Manual or via the Sky Customer Service option in the Interactive on-screen menu.
The SkyHD RCU can also be programmed to operate Sky+ boxes as well as SkyHD:
Press the TV button.
Press and hold SELECT and i together until the LED flashes twice.
Press the number button 1 and then press SELECT.
(Obviously you can't have a SkyHD and a Sky+ Digibox both in the same room).
Note: To re-programme the RCU for Sky HD box operation only, repeat the above process pressing the 2 button in step three.
Keep pressing HELP and waiting a few seconds until you find the correct command that activates the AV source you require then press SELECT.
The HELP button will now directly activate the chosen AV source instead of toggling through the alternative options to reach it.
There are 18 AV source commands to be tried before the RCU blinks 3 times to indicate it is out of options.
The Sky Guide buttons (SKY, tv guide, box office, services & interactive) can now be directed to use the same AV source as the newly programmed HELP button.
Press SELECT and GREEN until LED flashes twice.
Press HELP then SELECT and the LED will flash Twice.
The Sky Guide buttons will now instruct the TV to switch to the desired AV source and the RCU will be in Sky Mode.
Discussion here: http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=944054
You can also use a Sky+ remote to control a SkyHD digibox.
See codes page for SkyHD

HOW TO CONNECT SAMSUNG LCD TV TO ACER ASPIRE


Atlast I got some help from the right people (Samsung)! I would like to share it with others facing the same problem:

If you are using the D-sub 15 pin jack (VGA Monitor Cable: make sure its 15 pin and NOT 14 pins), follow these steps:
  1. Make sure your TV and computer are off.
  2. Using a 15 pin D-sub (standard) video cable, connect the Video Out jack on your computer's video card to the PC In jack on the back of your TV.
  3. Using an audio cable with a min-stereo plug on one end and two RCA jacks on the other, connect the Audio Out jack on your computer to the left and right PC Audio In jacks on your TV. (Note: If you have your computer connected to separate speakers, you can skip this step)
  4. Switch on the Notebook and Adjust the Resolution (800 x 600 pixels would do). You can go to Control Panel and Adjust the screen resolution. (Keep ‘Screen Refresh rate’ at 60hz in the Monitor Settings)
  5. Switch on the TV and try to Select the Source as 'PC' (you can do this by either pressing the 'Source' button several times on your TV remote or go to the Menu - Setup and Select the 'PC' as source there).
  6. In most cases, after following the above steps, the TV would start to show 'Auto Adjusting' message and it will start showing your Desk top on the TV. But incase it doesn't work, you can do the following:
a. Mostly the problem lies with the VGA cable. Make sure you have the right one (15 pin) and its securely attached at both ends. If you are not using the right VGA Cable, it means that there is no connection between your TV and Notebook. Your TV will show 'PC' in Grey in the Source Input list (Go to ‘Menu’ from the TV remote).
b. Both your Notebook and TV should be switched off when you are connecting the cable otherwise one of them might have a problem detecting the other one.
c. Try Pressing Fn + F5, F6, F7 (depends on which Notebook brand you are using) on your Notebook several times. At times, you will see some signs that the Notebook and TV are trying to connect. Select 'CRT' from list of displays available to you.
