Hi cxbutah
I am pretty sure that you need to (reset the tv back to the Factory Settings) This is older TV so if it is not located on the menu
I try to find a small hole on the front or it might be located under the speaker grill cloth or even on the side or rear (NOT SURE WHERE)
But in any case keep the TV on and push and hold the button until your tv flashes or blinks a message then let go>

(plz feel free to rate my help) I am still trying to locate for on this issue. Thanks

Hi,

Initially, a few things you could try:

  • check that no buttons are stuck on the front panel controls;
  • do the same with the buttons of the remote. You could even try removing the batteries;
  • the square could probably also be PIP if this feature is available with your particular model;
  • verify that connection to source/input signal (cable and/or video in) is present.
All of the above are the easy user actions. Others that you could try are:
  • open the back of the unit to check for any loose connection with particular interest on the control panel, logic board and source/signal input boards.
  • the main board would generally have no possible issue but it may also be worth your while to check the same.
The above of course require a bit of familiarity with electronic components and circuitry and safe working practices.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back the brand and model number, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    its the problem of weak ---ic--- or capacitor----in the power supply board.so the tv is comming in the ---ON--- position but not showing any pictures.its not the major problem.just a simple soldering is required on the loose connecting points in the power supply board.take it to the repair center.as it would not be too costly.do not try any thing strange without any specific technical knowledge.your tv is showing some fault but is not in any kind of worse condition.do not worry it will be perfectly ok.

I just set it up (it is used) and I can't get to the "Channel Manager" in the setup menu, as it is grayed out. I can't auto program because of my inability to access this menu function.


Hi,
Channel menu will be grayed out if tv is set on AV Input, select TV source by remote or press any channel number to set tv on tv source, this will enable channel manager/ menu to tune channels in tv.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks

It's easy, you just have to go back into the menu setup for the auto channel/tuner setup and rescan for channels. I'd noticed this as well when playing around with the tv when I'd bought it and it had done the same to me.

I need help!


88Amber, are you sure your connecting the cable to Antenna input? many tv`s have more than one screw on connector on the back of the set, your menu may be set to "Antenna 1 " and it`s possible you have the cable attatched to Antenna 2, check your hook-up with a flashlight, hope this helps
