Which TV do you have? For most "modern tvs", there will be an input or source button on the remote. Press this button to switch inputs and eventually get back to the TV source. Some TVs have a button for the Input or Source on the TV itself. On a few older TVs, the button was marked TV/Video but did the same thing.

An exception: if you have a cable or satellite set top box, you may need to do an extra step. These require you to set the TV on a specific channel depending on the box (Ch3, 4, 60 (Dish Network)) Thus you need to change the input and then the channel if needed.

If you have a tv that uses the input button on the remote but does not have a matching button on the TV, then you need to replace the remote with one that has the feature. Some original remotes are available from remotes.com (search using the tv model number but not the manufacturer). Universal remotes may have a matching button except for the cheapest ones. However, you will need to try multiple codes to find the one that enables the input button. The universal remotes that can be programmed via a USB connection with a computer are the fastest to set up.

For a combination TV, you may need to press a TV/VCR or TV/DVD button on the remote.

I hope this helps. If you need additional assistance, please add a comment with your TV model number and brand. I may have the manual available.

How u get it off the **** screen When i hook up my xbox its comes on but its on the left part of the screen & the right side stays blue


Good day!!!

Please try to input other device such as DVD player to determine which device (x-box) or (TV) need to set up full view settings..

If you play DVD and the screen is fine so you need to set up the full view of your x-box using remote..

If you play a DVD but the screen is still half..You need to set the full view of you TV using remote..

I you have more queries and clarification just add a comment..

Hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya..

I just need a diagram to show me how to hook the dvd/vcr up to my television. I have Dishnetwork as well. I un-hooked and now I can't get a picture.


Not knowing the model of the TV its hard to tell you how to hook it up. Howeever let's assume that yu TV has an auido in and a composite video input. it it does is should have three RCA jacks on the back...one red, one white and one yellow.

Assuming Dishnetwork is being used as a analog video.

Connect the VCR/DVD player via a patch cable ( usually has three cable all color coded, red, white & yellow) Red and White section is used for the audio Left and Right. The yellow cable is video.

Connect the audio out of the VCR/DVD player to the audio input on the TV. Do the same with the videoout of the VCR/DVD to the TV may be marked "Composite Video". Now connect your Dish Network receiver RF Out to the TV. This should be a coaxal cable.

Now when you want VRC/DVD use your remote and select input. Some older TV's have the aux input just before Ch 2. Some remotes have an input button.

once you have aux inpsut selected turn on the dvd and play your movie to view Dish go to Ch 3 or 4 depending on how your TV and system is set up.

Again not knowing the model TV you have, this is a general hook up.

Thank you Let us know if it helps

Can record on DVD disc will not play on DVD player


Make sure the materials you're trying to record onto the DVD
is not Copyrighted. Try to record a normal TV program onto your
VHS, transfer it to your DVD and then play it. See if that will
work. A VHS movie is usually Copyrighted and Protected by
Macrovision. The picture output can be displayed on a TV set
for viewing but is scrambled black to a DVD Recorder.

Cannot view channels higher than 10 and cannot get DVD to come on


Dear althea, I cannot help you with the first problem, but as for the second, "DVD does not come On" and "Do not understand Video 1, 2, & 3 settings." it is very simple. YourTV has the sockets at the front Marked Video 1, Audio L and audio R, The y are in three colors - Yellow for video, red for audio right and White for Audio Left. Similarly, you have 2 such sets of 3 sockets - they are Video 2 and Video 3. This allows your TV to be connectod to three different Video sources - maybe a VCR, A Video game, and a DVD player. To view the pictures generated by your DVD Player, all you gotts do is connect the supplied AV cord from the rear of the DVD player to the front three sockets in the proper order - Video from DVD to Video of TV, Audio L & R from DVD player to Audio L & R of TV. Now press Video on the TVs remote. Press repeatedly till you get Video 1 displayed on the screen. Then, if you now play your DVD player - make sure there is a disc in it - you will be able to view the picture / movie. Good Luck

DVD-Audio, DVD-ROM, DVD-RAM, DVD-R, DVD-RW, CD-ROM, CD-I, (CD-I Ready), Photo CD, etc. Playing back these discs will generate noise and damage the speakers. * Note on Region Code DVD players and DVD Video discs have their own Region Code numbers.
