Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Thanks , i would have a few questions first ;
That HD FTA box is somewhat of an internet cable box isn`t it ?
How do you connect it to the tv ?
HDMI or color coded component cables ?
Sorry about my ignorance about those "free to air" boxes but there are so many versions .O.k then HDMI and was it working prior to replacing the lamp ??
How about your old bell dish receiver , did you try it hdmi ?
Do you mean that same FTA box or another one ??
Right now your tv seems to be working HDMI wise anyway I you can see the menu from the bell box.
Does that fta box you have now also have component type outputs and if so , did you try them or is it the same box that you are now connecting HDMI ?
Give it a try with component cables but the better test would be to try it HDMI on another tv .
Have you seen that box working before or it is new ?
I mean that you should be able to at least get some sort of signal on the screen or its menu etc. . like the bell box
rather odd if you can see your old bell receiver but not this box and even on component cables ??
Does your box have the simplest yellow video terminal or you tried the component Y-PB-PR terminals ?
Do you have something else like a dvd , game etc. that you could try on the JVC ?
Why did you replace the lamp , did the other one die ?
Right now I cannot see the connection between the lamp and inputs working only with some equipment and not others , this is rather odd here .
O.k then in any case even if the old lamp was still working , I cannot see the relation between that and the problems you have now unless the tv was stored for an extended period between lamp replacement ??
O.k but you did not store the tv for a few months for example and then decided to bring it out and replace the lamp ??
In other words , does this problem coincide exactly with the lamp replacement ?
o.k then it was the lamp replacement that threw me off here and off course that thing with the bell receiver .
When was the last time you tried the old bell box , today or back then ?
O.k then right now to resume this , the only thing that seem to show up on the tv screen is the bell box menu , is that correct ?
Did you try your bell receiver again today ?
I find this rather odd that it would be the only thing working or showing up on the screen .
This tv has an analog and a digital board , hdmi is digital and the audio/video are analog .
I would double check the analog connection again , something has got to be working or nothing at all
Yes but did you say that you could also see the BELL menu or did I misunderstand that one ?
O.k then I`m sorry but this is as far as I can get in this context , I would need to be there myself otherwise so I will opt out and repost your question , I`m just out of ideas here .
You don`t have to do anything , your question will be reposted for other techs. to see and jump in.
Just stand by and someone should be with you shortly .
