You might want to look in the menu to see if the tuning is set to antenna or air instead of cable or catv, this would explain the limited number of channels you are getting

SOURCE: Television Won't Display Certain Cable Shows

Okay,i assumed this is what you have:
HD cable box with HDMI cable connection to the Samsung TV.
Listen careful as follow:
First you want to make sure using the same HD comcast box with HDMI connection for our Samsung TV as well as your other TV.Be sure the other TV do received the missing channels from the Samsung TV.You must be SURE you have tested both TVs with the same HDMI cable with the SAME HD cable box.
Now that you have confirmed the both TVS are using the same HD comcast box and the same HDMI cable but the connection that goes to the Samsung TV are missing some channels,at this point,use another HDMI connection behind your Samsung TV and see if you have the same problem.If so,please also try the left side of the HDMI connection and see if you could get the other channels.
Let me know!

SOURCE: sound on 2 channels a problem

I diconnected a recently acquired Panasonic DVR which was hooked up between my TV and the cable signal source, but this had no immediate effect on the two channels. I then reset the TV by unplugging it over night, and by changing the settings on the sound menu. These actions removed the problem. Is it possible that the DVR caused the problem?

How can I hoop up an antema to TV?


That depends on the type of antenna, but in general it attaches to the same jack as your cable would. On the tv setup menu there witll be an option for cable or antenna, and then you'll need to run a scan to setup the channels. If the antenna you chose doen't have a ***** on connetor like cable, you can get an adapter at Radio Shack.

I have a PLDED3273A-E 32" LED PROSCAN TV HD ready but I'm not hooking it up to HD just a regular Shaw cable box. And it keeps telling me to run a auto channel scan over and over I have done this 15 times...


I can only tell you that TV will catch fire , It has a bad power supply hundreds of them sets have , Mine is one of them , Other then that you might look in the menu for a factory reset , If you want to risk it burning down your home !

Channel cable hdmi


Hello,
You will need to go into the tv's "settings" menu and change the input label from "Skip" to anything else that best describes the device that is attached to it.
Good Luck!!

Picture


Depending on the manufacturer of the cable box, there will be a menu somewhere regarding aspect ratio using the terms - cropped, zoom, and a few other terms as well. You probably want cropped, which will cut some of the sides off, but you wouldn't miss the picture as a whole when view at full screen. Hope this helps!
