When using a Proview LCD television system, you can watch the video content from just about any source, ranging from a DVD player to VCR, or even a high-definition cable receiver. However, if the video is not properly appearing on the television screen or if the audio is not being reproduced, you need to check the equipment and cable connections to pinpoint exactly what is causing the problem.

Step 1

Power down the television if you notice there is a single pixel not changing color when the image changes. Leave the television off for a few minutes, then turn it back on. If the pixel is simply "stuck," the image is going to correct itself once you turn it back on. If the pixel stays off (usually as either a white or black dot) it means the pixel on the Proview LCD television is dead. Once a pixel is dead, there isn't anything you can do about it.

Step 2

Push the audio/video cables completely into the Proview LCD television. If these cables are not inserted correctly, you are going to lose both audio and video signals.

Step 3

Check the source input you have selected on the Proview television. If the wrong source is selected, the audio/video signals do not load onto the TV. Push the "Source" button on the TV, then choose the correct option to view the content.

Step 4

Press the "Menu" button on the Proview LCD television, then select "Setup." Scroll down to the bottom of the options and select "Reset." This resets the television back to its factory options. Performing this task is helpful if the color or audio playback settings are off and you don't know how to correct the problem.
