I dont have cable.i was using this tv just to play dvds and i accidentally hit channel search. now i get a blue screen that says" plerase connect cable system or an antenna to the terminal on the back...


Hi:
Using remote locate a button called tv/video or Input, turn on the DVD player and hit this button until you see your DVD player Logo. Most dvd players use either video 1 or 2, or componet or HDMI outputs. Seems you have changed the TV's input back to TV mode and you need to change it to a video mode input.

How do I escape from an input screen back to watching satellite tv? Screen reads first please connect all signals and antennas to jacks and terminals on the back of the tv then press the channel up key...


Looks like your set is not receiving the signal from the sat. receiver. Make sure that the audio/video cable is in good shape and connected correctly, then select the correct input on your tv. If that doesn`t work try to connect a dvd or vcr on the same cable, if that is still no go then you may have a bad audio/video cable or there is a problem with your tv set. If it does work(dvd/vcr) then you`ll have to check your satellite receiver. Hope this help. Good luck

Scenium DLP quit recognizing cable signal


You may have inadvertently pressed some buttons on the remote to take it out of the mode to receive cable channels.
If you unplug the tv from the wall for a while, it may clear the error.

Step 1: Identifying Your TV’s Location
1. If your country is highlighted, press OK on the remote control.
If your country isn’t highlighted, press the up or down arrow button on the
remote control to highlight your country and press OK.
2. Use the number buttons and/or the arrows on your remote to enter your
zip code or postal code. Press OK when you’re fi nished.
Note: If your postal code contains letters, press the up and down arrow
buttons on your remote to enter letters, and press the right arrow button
to go to the next space. The left arrow button also moves the highlight to
the left.
Step 2: Confi guring for Cable
The next series of screens asks you about your cable setup. To supply your TV
with the correct TV program listings, the TV Guide On Screen system needs to
know if your TV is connected to cable.
Note: If you’re using a cable box, always leave it on so you can receive
program information.
1. If your TV is connected to cable, highlight Yes and press OK.
If your TV isn’t connected to cable, highlight No and press OK. (STEP 3:
Confi guring for Antenna
appears–go to page 24).
2. If you have a cable box connected to this TV, highlight Yes and press OK.
Note: The next series of screens is very important because the TV Guide
On Screen system must fi nd the correct cable box information in order
to receive the correct TV program listings.
If you don’t have a cable box connected to this TV, highlight No and
press OK (STEP 3: Confi guring for Antenna appears–go to page 24).
3. Highlight the input where you connected your cable box to the TV, and
press OK.
If you select Cable Input, continue to step 4.
If you select any other option, go to step 5 on the next page.
Important Note: Your cable box can’t be connected to ANTENNA
INPUT if it is to be controlled by the TV Guide On Screen system.

try using the guidelines above.

Frozen on a menu screen


Just fixed ours with the same problem. You need to hit the volume buttons on the remote during the time the screen goes black but BEFORE it gives you the "Connect cables" message.It should trick the TV into giving you a blank channel.

Sanyo TVs are made notoriously cheap, and have little glitches like this. Best of luck, space cowboy.
