After a friend touched it (don't know what he did), TV stays on 1 channel (Global). It is connected to cable but, whatever channel the tv is tuned to, it is always the same channel appearing on screen. Remote control doesn't work anymore (except for sound) and controls on TV itself seem to work, but without effect. Could someone help ?
P.S. Is there a way to find the user manual ?

If you have a cable box, the TV is supposed to be "stuck on one channel". Probably channel 3. If it is connected to the cable box with the round cable that screws on. If it is connected to any of the other ports, they don't change; the cable box selects which channel, (what picture) goes in that port.
Just make sure that the source/ input is the same as the input that you are using.
If you didn't change anything other than the cables, just connect your TV the way it was, and turn your cable box on and whatever channel number that your cable box has on it will be the what you are watching on the TV.
- COMPONENT (red blue green for video, red and white for audio
- COMPOSITE (yellow for video, red and white for audio)
So, if your TV is on a "Channel", it is not on the correct input to view the Xbox 360.
Check the Xbox and verify which cables it is using to connect to the TV. When you find this, follow the cable to the back of the TV and find the input selection. It should be listed as the type and a number (i.e. HDMI 2, COMPONENT 1).
Have the Xbox on. Use the TV remote and use either the INPUT or the MENU options to change the input to the input that matches the port that the Xbox is connected to.
This should make the Xbox work.
When you are done with the Xbox, use the INPUT or MENU to change back to the tuner to watch TV.
First check cable wire or whatever is connected to set for channels--the leads are connected and wiggle them with set on to see if it clears up--could be a connection where cable wire is connected at end--loose connection there etc.
If tuner is bad causing this and you use a box for signal--most have rear audio/video outputs you can connect to a unused video/audio input on rear of set---bypass the tuner in the set and operate set that way changing channels on box instead of set.
let me know if you have questions or have more information.
If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner
There should be channel buttons on the TV itself, try using those. Also, you may want to try changing the input from the Cable Box. I am curious as to why the remotes don't work. Also, how did it get onto channel one. Did you get the TV used? Here is a link to the AV Science Forum. It seems other people have challenges with this TV as well. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=745952
You can replace the connector or if you have a cable box with audio and video outputs on it---connect them into one of the sets of jacks on the back of the set--switch to that input and change channels with the box----you can also do the same thing with a VCR--hook the cable into it and use its video and audio output jacks to connect to the video and audio input on the back of the TV.
In this case (the VCR does not have to work except as a tuner) you will go to whatever input you connect to and use the VCR to change channels.
These are a little less easy to use but costs you nothing---I am here to help, if you have any questions or need help let me know.
Hi, where you plug the dvd cables into the tv determines where the picture will be seen; Example, if you plug the dvd players yellow, red & white cable into the tv`s "input 1" then you go to the tv`s "input" or "tv/video" button and push those buttons to get "input 1" to come up on the screen and you`ll see the picture and hear the audio, it`s kinda like a file folder in your computer, you`ve got to find the file then open it to see the contents. If your tv is on channel 3 or 5 or whatever you won`t see the picture because the picture is in video not a tv channel
