Thank you. I was cursing the damn TV. nothing worked. I had resorted to a universal remote months ago after losing the original...after reading your suggestion, I looked for the original remote & found it within 2 minutes (looked forever, prior, without sucess)...THE ORIGINAL REMOTE FIXED THE PROBLEM. EVEN THOUGH PUSHING BUTTONS MANUALLY ON TV DID NOT. I had expected the TV to work manually WITHOUT THE REMOTE. My sanity is saved. Thank You for the Enlightenment. djp

Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at http://www.remotes.com Good Luck

I have a 42 inch lcd tv. The tv will come on but the screen is blue Cant change channel or adjust volume. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

try to unplug it and a cable or sat box if used from power for a while to see if a reboot will help---also the fact you cannot change channel etc means the set experienced some kind of glitch.

TV screen is frozen

Look for a button on the remote or front of the set that is labeled input (could be tv/video) this switches between video inputs and the tuner.

All Ihaveis blue screen

You need to change the source (original remote) or the input (univeral remote). It needs to be in TV mode - not video.

Input problem

If you have the original remote, hit video, source, or input button, if it dont have them, then try to change the tv to channel 00 (zero or zerozero), if not then the channels might have to scroll to it, from channel 02 down to make it loop, if it goes to the next highest channel, then you need a remote. It may be set in the menu options to have the video source not saved to your list of saved channels. when you scan the channels, the tv might not look for the A/V source (audio / video), maybe just the RF source. The 3 DVD RCA wires are 1 video and 2 stereo, one stereo for left and one stereo for right. The TV has only 2 , 1 for video and 1 for mono 1 channel sound. This wouldnt have anything to do with why you cant use the DVD player. but try that with the original remote (or a universal remote that is set to your tv set that has either video, input, source or something similar. It is what tells the tv to change from the cable source (RF) and the AV source (the Red White and Yellow plugs, in your TV's case, 2 plugs, one yellow and the other either red or white or something). Dont really know how to explain it much more but hope it helps.
