Most likely the edge lighting has gone bad in that area. It may be fixable at a TV shop, but will probably cost as much as a new TV. Take it to GEEK Squad at a Best Buy for a quick diagnosis. Then if it cannot be fixed for a reasonable price, they will recycle it for you and you can look for a new TV.

There should be buttons on the TV itself to try if your remote is not working. My guess is that SkyeTV comes into the TV through a HDMI cable, so look for HDMI input as source, not "Skye."

Most universal remotes allow you to seek and find the working code. Look at your manual for the remote for more information. Takes a bit of time, but usually works.

Most DVD players have a small hole in the front of the unit where you can insert a straightened out paperclip and unlock the drive tray. You may have turned down or off the front display by mistake. Look at the user manual for information about that.

Woa!! You must use a wall mount bracket to do this. You just don't drill holes in the wall and then try to mount. Good wall mounts are not expensive (WalMart has a good supply of various sizes.) Here is a You Tube video with more information on wall mounting tvs.

Try these: 0019; 0030; 0003; 0052; 0185 Also, most remotes have a seek and find mode where you just keep hitting the remote button until you find one thatn works. If you bought this at Best Buy, their GEEKSquad should also help free of charge.

Do you mean 'unlock" or just turn it on? There should be a series of buttons on the TV itself that allow you to turn on, choose input, volume, etc. Your JVC tv manual should explain the buttons. You may also want to buy a "universal" remote control and program it to the TV if you have lost the original remote.

Do you have an antenna connected? Otherwise, if cable, channel 4 is probably the one your cable box uses to send its channels to your TV from the cable box. IF you have HDMI output on the cable box and your TV (input), you just need to use that cable and choose HDMI from your input list.

Hello -

It would help to know the model number of the TV, but the following passwords are commonly used for Lexsor LCD TVs:

000000 (default)
962326 (master/override)

The default should work if you haven't set a password. If you've set one and forgotten it, the master password can be used to unlock the TV and reset the password.

If neither of these work, please reply to me with the model number of the TV by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question. If you don't know the model number, it should be on a label on the back of the TV.

The code will be found in the Kevin remote control, if it is compatible with the Skyworth TV.

Hmmm, Your question (I have a great picture but no sound?) is extremely vague. Let's check the obvious first, and proceed to the obscure...
With your Remote Control, turn up the TV volume. - Does the numeric or gas-guage type of audio level display on your TV? If the audio level does not display on your screen you might have a problem with your remote control. Try to adjust the volume with the volume adjust buttons or sensors on the TV, usually found on the rear side of the TV close to the right or left side. Sometimes these controls are on the front, top, or bottom of the TV frame.
Next let's check the source of the picture, and how the sound goes from the source to your TV. If the source only outputs sound from the analog sound jacks (usually red and white, and labeled Audio Out) you will need to connect audio cables from the source's Audio Out Jacks to the Audio In Jacks of your TV.
If your setup uses HDMI cables, ensure the cables are seated properly on BOTH the source device and the TV. You COULD have a problem with the HDMI cable that only affects the sound, but replace that cable as a last resort. Ensure the SOURCE device (such as a satellite TV or cable box) does not have the sound MUTED. (DOH!)
Next go into your TV MENU. Select SOUND (or AUDIO) and scroll through the features to ensure that the source of the sound input is the actual input you are using. Ensure the TV SPEAKER selection is enabled. Ensure that the digital optical output option is not selected if you are not using it. If your TV has an old-school headphone jack, ensure that a cable is not inserted into the headphone jack.
If you have another TV you can connect to your source, you can quickly determine if the sound problem is with your original TV or the source device. You might be able to also use another input device with your original TV to determine if the TV produces sound from this alternative source.
You might even hook up a cheap digital TV antenna directly to your TV's RF jack, if there are local TV stations you can pick up. If you can see a TV channel picture but no sound, then the problem will definitely be in your TV.
Inside nearly every TV is a circuit board dedicated to sound output. The problem may be on the sound circuit card or from the circuit board that is feeding the sound to the sound circuit board. Very rarely would the two speakers both fail at the same time... but a damaged headphone jack (caused by a foreign device that was jammed into the jack and removed) can cause this problem. If you have a damaged headphone jack and don't need it, simply remove the wires from the headphone jack and connect these wires directly to the speakers.

You can purchase a replacement sound card and install it pretty easily. If that doesn't fix the sound problem, you might need to replace the tuner circuit card.

Good Luck, and let me know if any of this helped you!

Have you gone to menu and to your network?
Have you seen the option Wireless Network.
Have you searched you network and connected it.
If you have a pass word to your wireless you will have to enter it into your tv and connect it?
