    We get the local channels thru use of an antenna on a pole. It is not the best, but directv tested the area and said we could not get a waiver. Strange thing is however, that about a month ago, we started getting the CBS feed from NY...and we pick up he local news by as stated, use of an antenna. The ABC local channel, just went digital two days of course we do not get it, even tho all we have to do is tie it into the directv receiver. That is, once we can receive any signal on the tve from either. We put this tv into service about two weeks ago..we are unable to get any signal from local CBS or ABC or PBS. It is just snow..Even plugging ithe antenna directly into the set does nothing. Trust this explains it a bit better.

    Only one foreseeable problem in that...over the years, the manual has disappeared,. We control the tv via the diredtv remote..any suggestions as to how to access the tv menu..the directv one is not able to show air or cable that I can see

    You can contact Symphonic Customer Service and see if you can purchase the remote directly from them @ 800-256-2487.

    Otherwise try EBAY, but other than these 2 options it may seem you are SOL.

    Next time if you have a TV laying around it would be good to duct tape the remote to it...

You will need to get a RF modulator. It has connections for RCA jacks and S-video inputs and converts it to a RF signal (usually channel 3 or 4). Just plug game/DVD player into it and the antenna out to TV. You should be able to get one at any electronics or department store.

No Picture or Sound

I dont think it's worth getting a repair man to come fix a Symphonic TV... honestly, they are problem prone... and It would cost much less to just buy a whole new one. I have a symphonic tv with no remote, and now, I cant switch into game mode! It's like they designed their tv's to be crappy!

My Tv just started doing the same problem

Sounds like the On/Off sitch is bad to me. Be Calm my friend these things happen in life. No point in becoming angry over it. The fact is it was probably the least expensive set on the shelf when you bought it. It came with a warrenty as do the other brands And, this sort of problem can happen to ANY brand of television. That's why you get a warrenty. Also, you could have bought an extended warrenty which would have cost you more than the repair job you need for your tv. Call 18002427158 press 1 be preparred to hold about 4 or 5 minutes and ask them for a service tech in your area. I would think that this should be repairable for about $35-$55 OR look in your yellow pages and take it to any TV reapair shop in your neighborhood. Don't worry, BE HAPPY!!!! Don't forget now, very soon, if you don't have cable or satelite you will need a new tv anyway. The nation is going Digital! WOO HOOO!!!! Have a great day! Symphonic tv's are ok. I have had a 27" here for 13 years now still plays great! Although, my 6 year old Symphonic just pooped the bed. But, that's ok cause I can fix it!

Tuning problem

Your TV is set to Antenna. You need to go into the menu and change it to Cable. Then do an autoprogram.
