Hi, I have a Sharp Aquos LC-19DV28UT given to me as a gift. I connect the cable from the cable box to the TV, give the remote the proper code, and the TV turns on OK.

I have a Pioneer Plasma with a separate media receiver. I just changed cable companies. In setting up with their "box", my receiver when trying to turn on just flashes red/green. Can't get it to work. The tv shows a picture (3/4 screen) and somewhat is somewhat "stretched", but NO VOLUME! Can anyone help? The new cable company says there is nothing they can do. They think my tv is incompatible with their "box"

My samsung txm3096whf model Tube HDTV has as a fuzzy distortion line that only appears on HD channels. It doesn't appear at any particular time but just seems to show up randomly on certain channels. Do describe it even more it's about a 1-2" thick line that stretches the entire length of the screen and distorts the picture just in that one area. This will happen for about several seconds and only does so when 1080i is selected as the component output. If I select 480p I do not have this pro

I have a JVC AV-56WP 30 Rear projection TV. The screen/image is very dark and blurry with lots of lines. It looks like I have the cable box hooked up but the TV is on the wrong channel (ie 3 when its supposed to be on 4). It flashes and I can barely make out the picture. It seems to start randomly and disappears randomly as well. It flashes a normal picture periodically but only for a second. What can I do to fix this? I don't want to spend much money.

Our Toshiba 42HL196 TV refuses to turn on. The red LED light at the bottom flashes three times repeatedly. In the operating guide it says this means the TV is rebooting, and to wait a few seconds for it to come up. It's been like this for several hours. We've tried unplugging the TV, waiting a while, and plugging it back in, but the LED just goes back to blinking. Is there anything else to try?

Hi I have recently got a Hitachi HDR255 250gb Freeview + recorder. The problem i've got is that when I am in live Tv Mode and I want to rewind it will only rewind back about 5-10 seconds and then automatically starts playing without me touching the play button. It has been doing this several times and I can't rewind back to the beginning of a program which the box says it can do. Please HELP Jim


Jim, it may say it on the box, but as i found out today, this recorder does not allow the rewinding of live TV. In fact, it seems that few freeview+ boxes do, even if the box says so. I had to return a hdr255 to Argos today for this very reason. ... Flat Panel Televisions
