Question about Dell W1700 17 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Turning on tv

When turning on, or trying to turn on the tv screen, I must turn the monitor on and off over and over again in order to change the channels. Most of the time I am spending five minutes or more turning the monitor on and off just to get the thing to change channels. Please help. By the way, I already had to buy and install the component to get the picture to work. shawn

    Even when I try to turn on the tv without the remote, I still have the problem. What is a tactile switch and where is it located?
    thanks,
    shawn

How do i get my Panasonic ct1388yd to register it's picture and its sound of my game console


The modulator is outputting channel 3 or 4 analog not digital. Channel 3 digital is not channel 3 analog. You have the opposite problem of those trying to receive TV on an older Analog TV. You need to rescan your channels to add the analog input. Assuming you TV still scan for those like mine does.

P.S. - BNC!!! Really?? I only see those on security systems these days.

We have a similar problem when changing channels/surfing, the TV will begin to power cycle, until you unplug THE CABLE TV input, then it will turn on again and stay on as you rehook the cable and change channels....till it decides to do it again, DTV channels seem to trip it up, but not sure....if I leave it on the same channel it will run for days. Yep and the cable TV is grounded outside

Resetting the TV
If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:

NOTE:
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time.

1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet.
2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...)
3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds.
4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV.
5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again.
6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices.
7. Turn on the TV.

hope this may help;

Olevia LT27HVX 27 just blue screen


I just had this same problem over the weekend. Is your TV hooked up via HDMI?? Mine was and i've been having problems with the tv image shrinking whenever i turn on the tv, so i would have to change the channel 1 or 2 times for the image to come up normally. On Saturday I went to change the channel and then all of a sudden I hearld this loud pop and when the image came on it was just a sky blue screen, I couldnt see anything, but I could hear the channel. So I disconnected the HDMI and hooked up the tv with component cables I had and now it works fine. I ordered a new HDMI cable just to see if it will work again. If not, i'm calling Olevia.

Cannot change channels in digital mode


Solution that worked for me:

Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.

Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.

Black out screen


I had the same problem once with my RCA television. It only happened on certain channels and didn't happen during commercial breaks. If I adjusted the volume on the tv the box went away, but came back shortly after. The problem ended up being some malfunction in the closed captioning. I turned it all off and changed the CC settings and never had the problem again.

Tv wil not change channels unless vcr is on


You must go into the menu, go to the channel setup and do a channel scan.. Your TV simply lost the channel memory. Good Luck
