Question about Hitachi 42HDT52 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Can't change channels

Suddenly the TV won't change inputs or channels - either by using the original remote, or the buttons on the side (Hitachi 42hdt52). Volume and power buttons work fine.

I had exactly the same problem. I finally found the power button on the underside of the TV. It is well hidden and to find it, you need to run your fingers underneath the panel. Turn it off for a minute or so and turn it back on and then turn on the switch on the panel on the upper right side where the channel and volume buttons are. It works.

What channel on the hci tv can I view my dvd I hooked the red yellow and white jacks into the back of tv but cannot find a channel to view the dvd


You probably need to find a Source or Input button or menu item. Change the source from TV (if that is your current source) to A/V (or composite video). Depending on the model, there may be a source/input button on the TV. There will always be a sourc/input button on the original remote. If you are using a universal remote, you may need to try a different code to get the function to work.

On a few TVs, you can find this in one of the sub-menus. However not all TVs let you change the source in the Menu system.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model of the HCI TV and whether you have the original remote or a universal remote to control the TV if you would like me to find the specific information for your TV.

(For example, the HCI RM22 III remote has the input button on the left side just below the power button.)

Won't channel up and down, stuck in input mode


Good morning Cheri
try restarting the tv, just disconnect all electricity for 30-60 sec.
connect again. If that does not work, Try set- up on the menu, if you get the apparatus to obey you and leave the input mode.
If that does not work I always restart the router and "exchange"box,
enjoy your day

How to change input on older model magnavox tv remote


Some of the old sets input/tv-video are only on the original remote.

If no buttons exist on the set you may be out of luck---One possible thing to try depending on age of set:

Some if you scan the channel button down below channel 2 you may find the input is on a channel for example 91-99.

Good luck and hope you get it working.

Tv won't switch to "tv"


Your T.V. is programmed to store the last input you've selected. You have to manually switch it back to your T.V. channel input after each time you switch it to HDMI or any other input even when you turn it off. The "Source" or "Input" button on your original T.V. remote will change this.

Original remote lost. have universal remote. cannot program TV


On the right hand side of this television there are panel buttons. It appears that your son in law knocked the tv out of the correct input. Press the input button in order to cycle through the 5 inputs. Typically pressing the input button on the side panel of a television and pressing it again and again and again will make it change inputs. Universally the buttons on the tv panel function as follows: Channel up moves the cursor up. Channel down moves the cursor down. Volume + moves the cursor right. Volume - moves the cursor left.
Hope this helps

Change from TV mode to AV mode for a Hitachi C28W4110SN


There should be buttons somewhere on the TV itself to switch input modes. Look around where the power button is located and see if there is a menu button you can access. Then use channel up/down and volume up/down to scroll thru modes to find input

Hope this helps

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

From the manual (search Google for CM27101S): Normally, your TV displays the signal coming through the antenna terminal. However, If you?ve connected another component to your TV(such as a VCR) using the Video/Audio input, you will want to be able to view the signal from the component. To do this, you will need to switch from the ? TV ? input to the ? Line1, Line2 ? Input, as follows: 1 With the TV on, press the MENU button twice, then ? Set-Up ? menu will appear. 2 Use the WCHVbuttons to select ? Input ?. 3 Press the CVOLB buttons to change from ? TV ? to ? Line1, Line 2 ?. 4 Wait 10 seconds, or press the MENU button to return to normal TV viewing.
