LG video stuck on AV

Hi There, I'm being driven mad by an LG NTSC longplay video that appears to be stuck in AV mode. I have tried putting it back in standard mode by using the AV button on the remote but it doesnt work. I have also tried various combinations within TV & video on the remote. The nearest I have got is it moved to 'PRG 1' but displayed nothing on the TV. ARRRGGGHHH, please someone shine a light on this, I'm missing some great shows !!
Thanks

hmmm

this is a rather vague question. what component(s) do you have? & how do you have them connected? & did it ever display video properly with how you have it now?

hi

yes, it all worked until last week. Got a 3 year old who no doubt pressed some strange combination of buttons, now it doesnt work. Standard set up of TV to video

heh

I assume an LG NTSC LongPlay Video is what we call a VCR (video cassette recorder). I'm also guessing that when you said "you are missing good shows" that you use this VSC to receive an antenna or cable signal & then output it to your TV. So perhaps your TV has to be on a certain channel & perhaps you have to have TV/VCR mode turned on. or perhaps you have to have your VSR on a certain channel? Is this the model you have?
