The HDMI port will only accept 480p, 720p, 1080i or 1080p out of the XBOX. If the XBOX is set to 480i the TV will see it as an invalid format.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 (SM-T21XX) does not support MHL. The Tab 3 8.0 does support MHL. The manual for the Tab 3 7.0 is available on the product page: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/owners/product/galaxy-tab-3-7-0-wi-fi . The only TV feature listed is using Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 as a remote control for your television. You need to accept the Samsung terms of use to download the manual (expand the section on languages). I wish that I had better news for you. Cindy Wells

TV comes on and shuts back off in about a minute.

You may have dying power supply or short circuits, make sure it has 16vdc, 5vdc, and 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there are some troubleshoot you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

If you are going to DIY and have proper tools, electronics knowledge, and know safety precaution then please read on:

How do i get the child lock off without remote

Without a remote control, you can't. To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability. Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have. Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the sites. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops. Visit some on-line sites too, which deals with electronic spare parts. Unlock procedure and to override the password lock to many popular brand TVs are given. Search the site by type in this key phrase "How to unlock television"; in the search box at the top left of the display window, to get gathered related posts.

I have a Olevia 42

Popping sounds means that there's a discharge inside the tv. Since the HDMI inputs have also failed my guess is that the 20 volts power rail from the PSU has problems, most likely caused by failing capacitors. The tv must be opened and that rail checked. This requires some electronics expertise, if you don't have it then it's time to call a repairman - his labor bill will be much higher than the price for the replacement parts.

I have blank screen, no sound, no picture, no source or no menu

Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

The screen is blue but nothing shows for tv or dvr

Hi Mike, If your TV is more than 4 years old cost of repairs will probably be more than a new or refurbished replacement. Here's something to try: If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors - Flickering screen - Screen image disappears after several seconds - Dim screen - Slow start - Power LED on, but no picture - Unusual colors and/or lines The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad. If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced. New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years. Check the cables, connectors and connections. Take it to a repair shop. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TR2iWN6b-LY
