Is this tv/dvd combo one you just picked up or one that you already had that was working fine and now its not. The reason I ask is that how the dvd portion of it was or was not working well before the current problem would help to identify the problem better. However, yes the tv can be repaired. The question is because of the size whether or not it is economically feasible. That question really depends on what your local tv repair shops charge you. In my area that problem would be at least $45 - $65. Certainly, it can be fixed. With my experience with that problem in tv/dvd combos including some I have owned, the problem could be as easy as a mechanical problem with the dvd portion such as a or sensor that detects whether the dvd door is open or closed and a disc present or it could be just a dirty dusty mainboard and power supply that needs to be cleaned. Dust and lint accumulation on the components inside that tv can cause all sorts of problem because they tend to collect small static charges and eventually over time renders a critical component on the mainboard such as a relay that cycles the power on and off to fail. Since you do get the initial logo and blue screen I would say your power supply is good. But since I cannot see inside your tv this is the best answer I can give you for now. Good luck and God bless you.

What's your question? I just bought Finesse tv but it does show any channels its just blue screen only ive tried to do automatic channel preset but nothing happens

The blue screen shows that you do not have a signal coming into the TV. So it sounds like you have the wrong input selected and or no aerial connected. Check the manual look for the inputs menu any cycle through them. My best guess is the DTV (Digital TV) input is not selected or you have it selected but no aerial plugged into receive a signal.

Once you have confirmed this run the automatic channel pre-set again.

Nothing shows up on screen just have a blue screen

If the set do not show its logo on the sereen along with the blue screen, the system control section should be suspected. Here according to you, I understands that there is no logo on screen. If system control section is fully operational, the Logo eill be there. If there is logo of the set, on a blue background, the tuner to it to be suspected.
Just check whether the set gets Menu options on its screen with its remote control. If this also is absent, make sure the fault is with its main system IC itself.
The work is a very skilled one, and one who haven't knoledge about digital electronics, and working of this section cannot do anything. Just contact an expereinced service technician, or get it repaired by the authorised service center.
