TV doesn't receive higher channels

I have a GE 25GT511 television. I don't have cable, only an antennna, which is plugged into the tv's cable plug. The tv receives channels with smaller numbers (3, 7...) great, but channels with higher numbers (28, 36...) don't come in at all, like they're not even there.

Re: TV doesn't receive higher channels

Check the setup menu--make sure it is set to 'antenna' an not to 'cable'. If that menu item is set to 'antenna', the set will receive the standard UHF broadcast channels, but if set to 'cable' the set will not, as the 'channels' from 14 up are totally different.

Depending on the chassis, it could be the OBT has a bad componet or a parts bad in it or if theres a standup tuner it has to be replaced. You should take the set into a repair place for an estimate good Luck

Can I get higher digital cable channels?

The model indicated here does not have a "digital" tuner so if using an antenna you would need a box for the digital channels---in general non digital sets will not receive digital channels on their own.

Not sure what channel to put TV on to receive DISH channels

Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Internet Response Team here. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. The channel that you would need to put your TV on would depend on the type of cable you have plugged into your TV and receiver. If the cable you have plugged into the receiver and TV is a coax cable (black cable with silver end) the channel would need to be on 3 or 4. If the cable is a RCA cable (black with red, white and yellow tips) the channel would need to be on an input such as Video 1, input 1, input 2, aux etc. The other cable that it could possible be hooked up with is a HDMI cable (black with a thin flat end) the TV would need to be on a HDMI input. You can find the inputs by pressing the input, TV/video, source or AUX button on the DISH remote or TV remote. I hope this information is useful and if you have any other questions please let me know.

Lost Manual. "Clock set, year, month, etc." on screen. Working with "Menu" button doesn't fix it. How do I get it off?

There is usually a cancel button.
If that does not work, try unplugging the TV power cable for two minutes.
If still no luck , then give me the complete model number, or enter the model number here to access manual.

Suddenly no sound & no picture overnight: is my TV dead?

If you have static siugnal, sure TV is not dead.

Check the aerial cable, ensure it is well plugged in and getting signal.

If you are using a receiver box, check cables to TV and receiver (freeview, sat, cable etc.), try setting channels on receiver again, if it does not work but you get static, then either the cables or receiver are defective.

Test the TV on standalone , connecting it to an external antenna.
Tune again the channels, and save the preset.
If still no signal then the antenna socket on the TV may be defective.

Try using the TV with a DVD.

If you can watch DVDs, and TV is not keeping channels preset, and you tried all the above, at this point htere may be a fault in the tuner card inside tv.

Call the phone number listed on tv user manual to get support, and eventually repair it.

I cant get the tv to go to higher channels

Most tv's have an Antenna mode and a cable mode. If you have cable tv service, the cable mode must be selected in order to receive channels higher than 23. Then you must auto program the channels thru the menu screen on the tv to receive the channels above 23. If you have a house antenna or rabbit ears, its hit or miss on receiving all VHF and UHV channels.

Can't get cable channels, only goes up to ch. 13

First check and see if you are on Cable or Ant. It sounds like you are on ant. Change it to cable. If you are on cable then it's you tuner, you need to replace it.
