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.

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.

I have a sharp crt tv model:25c-bs370,although i'm using cable signal which more than 100 channels,still the channel it receive is limited only to 35 channels...how to rechannel the unit?my tv came...


Hi,The Television from japan have no lowband channel,It can be rechannel but the channel additional is onlly the lowband channel it maybe add only 2 channel.So the best things you do is to buy and install a channel converter to your TV.A channel converter is 100 plus channel thats why you can use your cable to japan television.To install the channel converter you need to set your television to Video setting and use RCA connector and plug it to video/sound input of your TV and video/sound output of channel converter.The cable connected plug it to channel converter.

WE ARE TRYING TO GET TELEVISON RECEPTIOB BUT WE GET "NO SIGNAL INPUT COMPONENT 5 AND THEN IT POWERS OFF". WE HAVE A PIONEER PDP 425 MX. I HAVE TRIED TO USE ONLY INPUT 4 BUT TV WILL NOT STAY ON...


The reason your tv is powering down is that it is not receiving an input signal on the channel (input). basically you don't have anything plugged in and turned so the tv doesn't see a signal on component 5 so it shuts the tv off. turn on your TV and hit the input button until you get to the input that you are have a device installed on. just make sure the device you are trying to see on the tv is turned on prior to turning on your tv.

If you do not have an and device plugged in (cable or other input device), plug something in to an input and turn the device on so a signal is being sent to the tv and then turn on your tv and change the channel to that input.

if you are locked on input 5, install and turn on a device to that input so the TV registers it as an active input.

TV freezes up when turned to channel 33-1


I had the same problem. I also use rabbit ear antenna , no cable or satellite. I was watching ch. 33.1 and the tv turned off by itself. The remote wouldn't work. The power on/off buttons on the side of the tv wouldn't work. I had to un-plug the power cord to turn the tv off. The tv forze on ch. 33.1 when I turned it back on.

I called Vizio, they told me they received hundreds of complaints from people in Texas complain g about these problems.

I was told to un-plug the antenna cable and re-plug it. I did this plus I re-scanned all channels. The problem has been solved, the channel (33.1) no longer freezes and the tv doesn't turn off by itself.

Hope this helps.

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.
