I can't switch channels


Consult the owner manual (you can GOOGLE to find one with the model number if you do not have it) to see if the set has a feature to lock out channel being changed---this feature is on some sets so if using a box children etc cannot change the channel.

You can also try to route your signal to a rear audio/video input and change input to that input and change channels with the box if you use one.

It sounds like you have entered a AUX mode this is when the device tried to find audio input (for example an ipod) look for a button called Function/input or radio

Front Audio Video inputs not working


What model TV is it?
it may be you need to change the input to video 1 or video 2 to get those front jacks to work. if there is a TV/Video button on the front you should be set. If not you may need the remote control. Sometimes changing the channel to below channel 1 will give you that option.

Channal selector down


Sounds like it is changing to another video mode that has no input so the screen is blue. On many tv's the channel buttons also act as video input button. This should happen with the buttons on the tv. If you are using the the remote I am not sure why it is acting like a video input button. Try changing video to tv with one and changing the stations with the other. I take it you are watching antenna tv and not using cable box or satellite. If this does not work and you have old vcr just use it as a tuner to change your channels.
