Re: tuning in takes ages whilst warms up

IF your TV is not one of the real old ones, you have a problem with the automatic tuning system. Some component in this circuit most likely a capacitor or coil is changing its electrical properties due to temperature which in turn causes the set to be off frequency until it warms up. A capacitor (condenser) can do this quite often. Stargazer

How do i tune it to a video channel i have 8 ground channels and would ideally like to use no. 9 for video but have had no luck tuning it.

Select Cn 9 and press manual search whilst you are playing a video. Kepp searching until the video playing appears on your screen then press store.
I take it you have the RF link lead between the Video RF out and the TV aerial Socket otherwise it won't work.

Tv out of foucs

These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

How do I tune TV channels on my Sharp CX48G4 TV without a remote control? There is no tuning / settings panel on the TV itself which is very strange.

press the preset button on the front panel once then (TV should be on) the on the screen there should be words the likes of (Auto VHF 1 60.00mhz) now the Auto stands for auto tuning VHF stands for its frequency where its going to search the 1 stands for the channel where its going to start with 60.00mghz stands for the lowest signal to which its going to start now that you have understood all that just press the volume up button then it will automaticly locate all your working channels leave till it stops for when does it will start from channel 1 to which I believe that you be able to see the channel working so press the up button on the channel button to check the rest of your channels hope this will solve your problem!

Can't tune low channels on Mitsubishi CK-2688R, 1985

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, not yet but could be after test/diagnosis. Initially, you must first determine for the presence/absence of the variable 33VDC tuning voltage. This voltage varies depending on what channel is tuned into thereby setting the VCO (voltage controlled oscillator). In some instances, it could be a faulty/leaked capacitor in the 33V supply or even a zener diode. Faulty capacitors are easily identified by bulging top (normally flat), blistered/split casing, brownish paper within the immediate surrounding, rubber bottom partially out and/or powdery residue on one of the pins. The diode is tested like any semiconductor, forward and reverse bias.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Color problem

Please fine tune those B/W channels to obtain color picture. If TV is more then 4 - 5 years old, it needs resoldering in tuning area or might need replacement of IF block.

How to tune an old Television

If you are in the US, the TV set has to be on channel 3 or 4, if your in the UK, the TV would have to be on a UHF channel. It should say on the RF output of the VCR what station you must tune to ,or in the instruction book of the VCR. Good Luck
