Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

My 36' Philips Magnavox Smart Plus Series television always shows up so dim whenever I change it to the "AUX" ch when playing PS3. It will be normal for a second on that ch, but I notice it will get dim after a few seconds. I've tried messing with the brightness and all that stuff, nothing seemed to work. It's driving me crazy because whenever I watch a DVD it just shows up way too dark and dull. I got the TV as a hand me down from a friend of mine, and he's had it for awhile. When watching digital cable everything is fine, it's just when switching to that "AUX" or as I call it the "PS3 Ch" it stay normal for a second then just gets dim and annoying. :/ I can still play with no problem but it's just knowing that it could be a bit brighter would help. :( Is there anything I'm missing with this TV? I don't own the original remote either but I've tried changing it from the "Sports" "Movies" "Weak Signal" "Video games" and still it's not working :( I don't know what else to do!

NO SOUND/CLEAR PICTURE


Please do not do all caps. It makes it harder for us to understand your problem.
Check the speaker settings in the menu and in the case, BUT NOT UNTIL IT IS UNPLUGGED FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES! TVs have caps that hold up to 30,000 volts and take a while to discharge.

DVD input with signal access


IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in

IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.

THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
