Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Tv appears to go while connected to cable box, change cable channel tv is on


\015 I have an LG flat screen connected to our local cable service box. Sometimes the TV appears to go off on it's own but, when you bring up the cable guide or change the channel the TV responds as it should. The screen goes completely black and there's no sound but change the channel and there's no sign of a problem. HELP!\015

Answers :

Swap out the box as it could be the problem and if it never does it with a DVD being played it is not likely to be the set.

We have followed every letter in the manual but have been unable to program channel 2 on our TV.  This channel is a legitimate channel on our other TV that's connected to a cable box. In the Toshiba, the cable is directly connected to Ant1. Am I missing something?  This channel used to work some months ago.  Is it a change from the cable provider's end that has caused this issue? Any help would be much appreciated.


I would try two things here---first with the remote for the set direct enter with the numbers on the remote 02 and enter to see if set will go there and second connect a different set to that connection to see if same issue or not. ... Flat Panel Televisions

My regza tv has a facility where you can change the input from scart1, scart 2, pc, hdmi, etc, etc, so you could change the input you are viewing and watch for example something on the pc. however, very recently the tv will start changing inputs on its own, without me doing anything. i'll be watching tv and the menu box will appear up on tv and it will turn itself onto pc of scart 2 of its own accord. no other cables are connected to the tv, but the scart lead from the cable box. i hav

I have a JVC RM-C60 TV. I'm trying to tune it in to my Virgin Media HD box using a standard SCART lead but having no joy. It's completely failing to find the cable channel (or any other for that matter). TV worked fine when connected to a Sky+ box the same way, and cable is fine since it works when hooked up to the DVD player. Any ideas?


Tuning of the TV not required when using scart lead, just select external input that the scartis connected to, ie AV1,AV2 (EXT1,EXT2) etc. The problem is possibly to do with the Virgin box, it may be set to HDMI out in which case it will not output a ... JVC Standard (CRT) Televisions
