    I do get other channels but they not coming in clear-I do get other channels clearly. When I called comcast (my cable provider) I was told I needed to get a code to allow my set to receive the other channels.

The TV may not have the programming to be set all the channels, what you need is a channel converter for TV, you will connect the CoAX cable (from the cable provider) onto the converter and then the converter will be connected to your TV will have all the channel for you. You will use two remotes though one for the TV and one for the converter.

Try to see if it has the ability to go to UHF, sounds like it's stuck on VHF. There may be a switch on the unit somewhere. It may be written as an AIR/CABLE switch instead of VHF/UHF.

Its problem of Tuner, old tuners didn't have ability of Hyper band frequency so it receives less channels on cable. Ask local tv repairman to replace its tuner with new Hyper Band tuner.

Your old tv does not have more than 11 slots to store channel .

This is a newer TV. It doesn't have an analog tuner. You will have to buy the analog to digital converter box and re-scan your channels, or switch to a digital cable/dish provider.

The mitsubishi model vs-60805 tv will provide air channels off of cable hook-up, but does not provide cable channels. What needs to be done to recieve cable channels? The menu does not provide an apparent...


Hi,
Mitsubishi VS-60805 is 1999 model tv and unable to receive digital cable channels because it is equipped with analog tuner that can not receive cable channels because it is almost 11 years old.
You need to hook Cable Box in AV input of tv, plug digital cable in cable box and get digital cable channels in tv. Cable box has its own remote control and inbuilt digital tuner to receive all digital cable channels and widely available in Store, Radio Shake, amazon.com etc.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Usually on a universal remote (after programmed) the volume is controlled by pressing the cable button then adjusting the volume. When you turn your tv on by pressing tv power---then flipping through the channels by pressing cable--channel up or down. The remote (in my experience usually only controls the volume while in the cable mode)

Had this happen on a Comcast box (Motorola DCT 6416 III)
Here's how to fix it:
Turn the cable box off, leave fully connected. Press Menu on the remote
The cable box internal menu will display (Not the Comcast one the Motorola one-- i.e. Display ratios-16:9 etc It's in black and white)
Use the arrows to cursor to the Closed Captioning and toggle to "Disabled" Press Manu again to exit and Voila!

Power the box on an have at it
