How to get cable channels over 119 - not available

Cable is connected and channels up to 119 can be found and played. An attempt to get 225 just brings a black screen. TV in family room receives, so cable is connected and works.

Depending on the brand, model and features (capacity/limitations) of each TV, some are not programmed to access certain channels over and above a certain point. Pls post back the brand and model of each of the TV units.

Alternately, you can try going into the MENU Setup and determine if you can perform a re-SCAN. In some instances, you may have to check the specific setting of the CABLE selection. There are several possible choices and largely dependent on what your cable provider is using; STD, IRC or HRC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I m having a problem with lg led le5300 26'' it is not catching any signal it has stopped playing any channel i have tried auto tuning so many times but no channel found.

Make sure your cable/antennae connection is OK and you're getting signal from over there by connecting another (working) tv set to it.

How do i get a signal using co-axial connections

An antenna on one end of the coaxial cable will get signals. The other end can connect to your TV. Then in the menu on the TV you have to select 'antenna' instead of cable. Many seem to have some kind of 'auto scan' mode that will look for channels available. (Unless you are talking about getting signals from the cable company. Then select 'cable' and still auto scan to find available channels.)

How to connect a philips antenna to a trutech tv

Unplug your television and turn the set around so the back of the set is facing you.

  • 2 Disconnect the antenna or cable connection from the television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port if it is connected.
  • 3 Examine your splitter and notice one end of the device has a coaxial port while the other end has two coaxial ports.
  • 4 Plug the coaxial end of the television antenna into one of the two coaxial ports on the splitter.
  • 5 Plug the coaxial cable coming from the cable television connection outlet into the second coaxial port on the splitter. Use the port next to the one you used to plug the television antenna into.
  • 6 Place one end of a 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into the single coaxial port on the splitter.
  • 7 Plug the other end of the 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into your television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port.
  • 8 Plug in the television set and turn it around so the screen is facing you.
  • 9 Use your television's remote control to access the "Menu," "Setup" or similarly worded function. Or press the "Menu" or "Setup" button on the front of the television.
  • 10 Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function. Set the Input to "Cable" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available cable television channels.
  • 11 Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function, then set the input to "Antenna" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available broadcast channels. Your television will locate both broadcast and cable television channels.
  • 12 Scan the channels on your television to make sure all available channels have been found. If you are missing any channels that you know you should have, manually program the channels into your television using the "Channel Setup," "Manual Channel Setup" or similarly worded function.

    I get a weak or no signal message on my new Samsung plasma. I'm using coaxial to my cable box. The cable works fine because I can see the vcr when it plays. I have it set to cable on the right channel...

    In this case, your VCR becomes the cable channels tuning device for your TV, the better connection should be from your cable box output to your antenna/cable TV input with the coaxial cable, surely, your TV has a better cable tuner than your VCR, to connect the VCR to TV you can use its AV outputs to an available AV inputs of your TV, you can get a better sound and picture in this way.

    Slow moving lines up screen

    I noticed the same lines on my 32" Sylvania LCD. After playing with some electrical plugs, I found that having my Sony PS3 plugged in interfered with my cable quality. When I unplugged the PS3, the lines and slight humming (only noticeable from behind TV) went away. I tried making sure the cable line and PS3 power cord weren't touching but to no avail. I guess I'll just leave in unplugged while watching TV.

    Trying to install channels on goodmans ld1962d. Not sure what active antenna is. No channels are found when we have aerial in or out.

    check for antena cable plug condition, normaly 80% of low quality of antena signal, is conection on antena plug (inside)

    1st open antena plug, check for condition/connection of cable.
    2nd check for each part of cable well connected, and no wires crossed on middle cable
    3rd check same to the other end of cable.
    4rd check the signal on diferent tvs around house (if available)

    if this general you dont have aerial signal in your house, check for your TV provider (cable) to test your arial signal.(Normaly this maybe a cable broken outside house).
