Re: cable to antenna mode

You will have to use your remote control and go into the menu. In the menu you will see several options . One will be auto tuning. Go to auto tune or tuning channels. Good Luck

Moved, no longer have cable and not getting any channels via attenna. Is it just bad reception or do I need a digital converter because of the change to digital stations?

Could be bad reception and or make sure the tv which was in the cable mode when you had cable now needs to be in air or antenna mode. IF you have another tv that works ok then you will know the channels just need to be reprogrammed for over the air signal. Go into the menu of tv and find program channels and switch to air or it might say antenna..

Only the lower channels work

Sounds like somehow the TV got switched from Cable to Antenna.

If there is a Menu look for a way to switch it back.

If it is REALLY old there may be a Cable/Antenna toggle switch on the back of the TV. If so, put it in the Cable position.

Antenna/Cable Switch

You can get a 75 Ohm to 300 Ohm balun from a local Radio Shack Store and connect it to VHF antenna but you won't be able to receive off the air signals for very long because in about a month all TV signals will be being broadcast in Digital Format nationwide and all you will receive is SNOW. You'll need to also buy a Digital to Analog conversion unit as well to receive off the air programming. Sorry for the bad news but that's the advancement of technology and mandates from our government (FCC).

Hope this helps and Happy New Year,

In the Setup menu there is an option to specify if you use an antenna or cable. Just switch it to antenna.

Continuous Channel Searching & Power Button Issues

What source are you using? If cable, you should only be able to pickup channel 3 or 4 if you're using the box. If there is no antenna, that would be the only other answer if the set checks out...accordianman

Receiving tv programs

In the menu theres a channel set up mode. You want to switch from antenna to cable mode, then do an auto search. Then all your cable channels will come in. Your going to need the original remote to go into the correct menu. good Luck
