Red light is displayed when the product is in the Standby mode.
Green light is displayed when the product is in operation. if the unit is red press the power button.

DTV button on the remote controls your receiver
TV button well, that controls the tv

you are probably needing to click on the
AUX button on your remote to get your dvd player to be activated.

and the
TV/Radio button switches between those two.

When powering on your receiver for the first time after purchasing, the Installation Wizard is
automatically started. It immediately performs Channel Search.(You can run the Installation Wizard
in Default Setting.)
Please wait for finishing the Channel Search. If you want to stop
the Channel Search, select the OK button.
If the Channel Search is stopped or finished, the result of
Channel Search is automatically saved.
so if your not getting all the channels you should this would probably be a good step to do.

You can switch the current channel using one of the following methods.
1. Press the CH-/CH+ button.
2. Enter your desired channel numeric using the NUMERICAL (0-9) buttons to move to the
channel directly.
3. Press the TV/RADIO button to switch between TV channel and Radio channel.

You can set Audio or Video Output Control.
1. Press the MENU button.
2. Select Preferences using the button, and press the
OK or button.
3. Select AV Control using the button, and press the
OK or button.

When you connect an active antenna to the ANTENNA IN connector on the rear of the receiver.
1. Press MENU button.
2. Select Installation using the button, and press the
OK or button.
3. Select Antenna Power from Installation menu using the
4. Press the OK or button to select On or Off .

There are three ways you can connect a DVD player to a TV. Component video gives the best picture quality, but requires 3 cables for the video signal alone. S-video needs only 1 cable but it isn’t as good as component video. Composite video is the easiest connection to make, but gives the lowest picture quality.

    Component Video Connection

    Get a component video cable. This cable has 3 sets of connectors, one each for the red, blue and green color signals.

    Match the connectors to the appropriate video output jacks on the DVD
    player. Component video outputs will normally be labeled Cr/Cb/Cy. The
    Cy output jack is matched to green, Cr to red and Cb to blue.

    Run the cable from DVD player to the TV. Most TV connections are made from the back panel, but this may vary.

    Match the connectors to the appropriate video input jacks on the TV.

    S-Video Connection

    Get an S-video cable. This cable has a single round connector with 4 pins.

    Attach one end of the S-video cable to the S-video output jack on the DVD player.

    Attach the other end to the S-video input jack on the TV.

    Composite Video Connection

    Get a composite video cable. These types of cables are frequently
    bundled with two-channel audio cables. Composite video cables are
    tipped with yellow plugs.

    Plug one end of the composite video cable into the composite video output jack on your DVD player.

    Plug the other end into the composite video input jack on your TV.

Hello katiebould,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

I woul recommend that you try a Set-Top Box. It appears that you were actually on the last leg of Analog TV and need to use a converter to pass the digital TV into Analog for your TV set.
You can try and find them at your local Best Buy/WalMart or check with you local TV Shop.

Here is a link to one that can be purchased online.

Line floats from bottom of screen to top. Is it the direct cable hook up that causes that to happen.

Hello bbarnell821,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

Your issue is from the tuner within the TV. The new cable standard is Digital, and your TV has an Analog tuner. Visit your local Best Buy or the link I have provided below, to purchase a converter that will convert the digital backwards to analog for your TV Set.

Is this model digital? My cable company tells me they will not transmit to non digital sets without additional box. Do I need this?

This TV is an older model with an NTSC tuner (OTA and CATV (analog). You will need a set top box with the digital cable system.

The law didn't require ATSC tuners in 13" TVs until 2007 and the TV was listed at Amazon in 2002. The law requiring the digital transition didn't pass until 2006.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I'm unable to get a picture or sound due to a "key" lock appears in the lower left hand corner of the screen. It will not allow me to unlock it.


Your TV is locked. Do the following to unlock it.

Apex TVs use a four digit code to control the v-chip. The override code for many models is 6688. Other sets may not have one, or may have a default code of 1225 instead of an override code.

  1. To use the override code:
  2. Hit the MENU key to get to the menus.
  3. Go down to the SYSTEM menu and hit the right arrow on the remote control.
  4. Once in the SYSTEM menu, go to PARENTAL GUIDE. It will ask for your code.
  5. Enter the override code listed above. From here, you can turn on and off different rating restrictions, as well as set a new code.
No matter what the V-chip code is set to, the override code will still work. If you have a blank screen with a red key on the bottom left, simply press the (function or F) button and the mute button at the same time. This will unlock the screen and allow you to view the channel as desiredOK.

Sony bravia & Bose 321, cd's only play in black & red, tried new cables & bose repair still doing it.

The TV does not have 5.1 output except when using TV's digital tuner for viewing. Have to run digital sound from set-top box to Bose system for 5.1.

Our tv doesn't have sound or picture

You need a Digital to Analog converter box as your TV is analog, and all broadcasts, since Last June 12 are Digital.

White horizontal lines on top of my tv.

This fault is most likely from some worn capacitors in the vertical output section. An experienced service tech can troubleshoot the set, locate the defective capacitors, and change them for you.
