Did you do a auto programming on it, also a $20.00 dollar anteanna would get you more channels also, go into the user menu and choose channel, choose either air or cable and do a auto programming on it, this will save all the channels that you can pull from using rabit ears

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal

This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Ilo tv shows no tv signal, I believe that the channels are deleted but don't know how to add the channels back

Here is how to try and get them back if they are available.
On the original TV remote do the following-
1. Press the MENU button
2. Use the channel down button to select channel set
3. Select channel add/delete
4. Press volume up
5. Select channel you want to add by using the channel up/down buttons on remote.
6. When you get to the channel you want use the Volume up button and the color of the channel number should become either blue or green if it is added and it will be red if it is deleted.
7. Repeat until you have added all the channels you feel you are missing.
8. Press MENU button to exit.
If the channels are still available this should get them to return. If not contact you cable provider to see if they have moved some of their channels recently or check their web site for the current channel line up.

Good Luck and please rate this solution....
