Strange channels showing up on Dynex TV

I have a Dynex 22" flat screen LCD TV. There are weird channels showing up on this TV that don't show up on our main TV. We are hooked up with a local cable company and we have our main LG TV hooked up to a digital receiver. The Dynex does not have a digital receiver. I see a lot of strange channel numbers, i.e. 26-13, 6-1, etc. Also, I have noticed that we are getting Pay-per-view movies showing up now and then on some of the higher numbered channels (129-9). We have not ordered any movies and we can only order movies on the LG TV. Any idea what is going on?

You'll need to find the Cable/Antenna setup and change it from Antenna to Cable. Sometimes the setting you want is called CATV.

SOURCE: can't get all digital channels

There are several possibilities assuming you have an outdoor antenna with the amplification. You are too far from the transmitter or the station is still on a low power digital transmitter until the analog broadcasts end. Additionally, there may be buildings, hills or trees in the way. The first one is called the digital cliff - you either have enough signal for your tuner or you don't. Some stations may need to add transmitters to cover the secondary areas that could still receive the analog signal. The second possibility will either resolve on Feb 18 or June 12 or anywhere in between. (It will depend on your station and the Digital TV transistion delay bill. Some stations are changing frequencies with the transistion and can't go to full power until another analog station moves its frequency.) The last one can't be resolved.
If you have an indoor antenna, you can try moving it around to get better results. My household has an amplified outdoor antenna with a rotator to get the antenna to line up with the signal. We have two analog stations that give problems when we look for their digital signals. We hope the issue will resolve with the changeover since we have seen the signals on both stations improve when they wanted to broadcast football games.

You should never have an acrid or burning smell coming from electronics. I'd return the unit, if that is still an option, as it is about to fail.

SOURCE: Dynex DX-LCD37: Missing cable channels caused by bad tv tuners?

That "Tech" is full of hot air, I have never heard of such rubbish! http://www.hdtvreview.com/pdf/dynex-dx-lcd37-09-02-manual.pdf
Above is your manual. have a look for your self. Now IF you can do Picture in Picture, then technically, there are TWO tuners, BUT one cannot work, and the other not, I do NOT know what that Tech is on about I suspect he is BSing you... If channels are Blocked, then it is maybe something wrong with the cable, or the strength of the signal, or something else, But there are NO "Tuners" that are going faulty, this is NOT how a TV receiver works.

Does this Dynex model have multiple tuners: NO If so, can they go bad : Yes, as could any electronic bit. maybe the ONLY tuner has faulted, but I don't think so. Tuners usually work, or don't. but still may pay to take to a professional and ask them to check the tuner?
Are the tuners replaceable: YES.
will the rest of the tuners eventually go out and I will end up replacing the TV:. NO, well depending if there is any fault, maybe.
Again I have never heard such BS, EVER.

Dynex TV came on black and the buttons aren't working?


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

A BOX WITH THE FOLLOWING INFO KEEPS POPPING UP ON THE SCREEN: 480P SD, HOWEVER I HAVE A 1080P FLAT SCREEN. IS THIS A CABLE ISSUE OR A DYNEX ISSUE?


It is most likely a cable issue. If you have a 1080p television your tv might be trying to communicate with your cable box. If your cable is broadcasted in standard definition that message can show up. I would recommend checking with your cable company and see if you have HD channels or not.
