Try Motorola’s Customer Support Center at 1-866-668-2271 or 1-866-MOT-BCS1. You didn't disconnect the short cable between the RF IN and TO RF IN ports, right?

I have a palsonic TFTV826HD tv and when i came home from a 2 week holiday , i am not able to receive the ABC and ch 10 stations , others i have , i reset and did the auto tuning


Do you use an digital antenna receiver which gives you a couple basic air channels for free Or is it through a cable company? It could be the weather conditions or the antenna could be unplugged or cable wire could be loose or cable company could have certain channels being fixed.
. We have a big Element HD tv flat screen and use an digital antenna receiver and when receiver is unplugged or if our outside/entry way doors are open (receiver antenna is outside) none or some of channels won't work..
Hope this kinda helps :/ :) let me know.at least I tried lol

Dig. lg 26 inches trying to get ch 1to 5


This is the low band in the tuner for the set.

If using a cable box unplug it for a while and plug back in for it to reboot.

Also you can route from a box or even an old VCR signal from its audio/video outputs to a set of rear inputs and bypass the TV tuner--use the box or VCR to change channels.

Leave the set on that input and operate without the tuner in the TV.

How do i get my TV to play through my surround sound system


I don't know which receiver you have but, I can give you a basic idea.
You need RCA cables Yellow for Video, Red and White for Audio.
You may not need to connect the Yellow cable for the Video again, it depends on the receiver you're using. Basically, to get the TV sound from your Surround system, you only need the white and Red RCA cables.
Connect one side of the RCA cable white & Red to the receiver (IN) and the other side of the RCA Cable to the TV or cable box (out) You need to select the source on the receiver, AUX or Video.

I could help better if I knew which receiver, if you're using a cable box and how are you getting TV signal? do you select CH 3 or AV to watch TV?

Best of luck to you.

What buton do press to get the channels?


Hello
To tune the TV either with cable of trerrestrial antena, plug in the cable or terrestrial antena cable to the antenna socket of the TV and do the following.

To preset a channel or to change a preset channel, follow the procedure below.

1) Press the POWER button to turn on the TV.

2) Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears

on the TV screen.

3) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "CHANNEL SET".

Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.

4) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "AUTO PRESET CH".

Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.

The tuner scans and memorizes all active channels in your area.

? The TV distinguishes between standard TV channels and cable (CATV)

channels.

? When AUTO PRESET CH action is completed, the lowest memorized

channel reappears on the screen.

? When you press the CH(annel) ? or ? button after selecting "AUTO PRESET CH",

the tuner will stop at the memorized channels only.

? The TV may recognize TV channels to be CATV channels by receiving conditions. In this case,

try AUTO PRESET CH action again in the fine receiving conditions.

? When AUTO PRESET CH is activated where there is no TV signal input, "NO TV SIGNALS"
will appear on the display after the completion of channel scanning.
OK.

My DCT6200 cable box keeps shutting itself off and then turning back on. I have already tried resetting it by unplugging, but that has done nothing. Even after I have turned off the power and left it...


1) have you tried changing that box in that room to another and the box from the other to this room. That may give you an idea of either power or signal strength issue.
2) after it resets does a "dl" show up on the box front. if so it is trying to download a firmware/software update and everythime you power cycle it starts over.
3) turn the box off then hit select and go to option 8. there should be 4 modules enabled.
4) you may need a new box

Sony VHS model no: SLV-SE710G isn't recording now that we have a freeview box. It just keeps changing back to L1 whenever i try to record anything!! I only want to record channels 1,2,3,4 !! HELP!!


Its hard to work out without looking at your cables. I assume the problem started when the freeview box got set up. I would guess that the aerial cable is now in the set top box instead of the vcr as the vcr sounds like it is unable to record when there's no signal (a common feature) so there shouldn't be a fault with the vcr,

just unplug the aerial from the set top box & plug it back into the vcr. Ch 1 2 3 4 should be back on vcr but set top box wont have any Ch.

most set top boxes have an aerial output, so you'll need another aerial cable, plug this into the aerial input on the vcr & ch 1 2 3 4 will be there but these will be analog (if your area has stopped analog transmission thats the prob rite there)

If you plug the matching cables from the set top box into L1 on vcr you'll be able to record digital tv as L1 use a signal from another tuner eg set top box, dvd player whereas the vcr channels 1 2 3 4 use the vcr's built in analog tuner. so it shouldn't be a biggie another cable should fix it,

Hope this is helpful, ask if you need more info
