Having problems with your Standard (CRT) Televisions ?

The remote wont and doesnt turn the tv on, go to turn on using the controls on the tv and read light flashes, informing that Child lock is on. Have tried the Menu botton on the remote many times with no luck !!!



Answers :

Hello Ben,
\015\012
\015\012Please can you let me know the model number of the TV. The method for deactivating the child-lock varies on different models. I know on some, you need to use the MENU button on the front of the TV (not the remote) and switch the child lock off in the menu, but this doesn't work on all of them.

\015\012Please reply to me with the model number by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. If you don't know the model number, it will be on a label on the back of the TV.

Verizon FiOS Motorola DVR freezes on menu (not the tv itself) and when turned off and on, will not turn on. When on the menu and trying to play a recording, suddenly froze. The remote is not out of battery, and the DVR itself reacts to the remote. Turned off the DVR, ONLY menu remained for a minute, before doing blank. DVR will respond to remote/buttons but will NOT turn on. (On a side note, the time displayed 9:30, the : is not visible at all)

Menu controls I have a 22" Luxor 22-860-cob television. Recently when I turned my Xbox on, the screen displayed in black and white. I have had this issue before and managed to deal with it by changing the PAL settings in the TV menu. However since then I have broken the Luxor remote and I am using a top up tv remote instead. When I am trying to change the PAL settings this time, I can access the menu but cannot scroll through it or change the settings. Is there a way I can control the menu using

I have a Gateway p46m103 flat screen television that will only turn on after plugging and unplugging the power cord many times. It would eventually turn on each time I tried this. Now, however, the green power light comes on, and I can hear it is on, but the screen is all black. I even tried pressing the Input button on the front of the television, to see if I had accidentally changed it, and even the icon on the screen will not show, to see if I am seeing the cable box, or the dvd player, etc.

We got a replacement remote control for our ECW TV/VCR. The previous remote stopped working. We tried everything with it but no luck. Our hope was that the replacement remote would give us this function back again. Batteries are in....nothing happens. Do we just return this remote ang try to get by with just manual controls. We have no menu so for recording we are stuck on SP. Where do we go from here.?

I did not receive a remote control with my NS-LCD32. Problem is we cannot turn off closed captioning. I realize their is a menu I can access on the side of the TV, however there is no option to turn OFF closed captioning. I have option to change how closed captioning looks with the menu and I have tried to do that but it always just looks the same. I really just want to turn CC off completely. Also the HDMI ports don't work at all... but I think we may have to live with that. Thanks in

My Sharp Aquos LC-60LE847U lcd TV has some kind of controller issues. At times when we turn the set on using the remote, the indicator light will light but the TV never has sound or picture. It never "turns on". Then when you try to turn the power off, neither the remote nor the manual switch on the set does anything. If you fiddle with the power enough, the indicator light on the bottom bezel of the set will start flashing 3 blinks then one blink and keep repeating that. Unplugging the set

TV staying on one channel only. Tried info, menu, mute power off. When it turned back on it showed the menu and option to reset, as per advice i have read on here. However the select / ok button on the remote does not seem to select the option, from what i read it is then supposed to switch itself off, when turned back on, it should then allow me to plug and play and start from the beginning as i did when it was first purchased. But it does not? :0( any advise welcome. Thanks in advance
