I can only get channels 2 thru 13 on my tv. The rest of the channels 14 thru 51 wont come on. They are nothing but static. I have gotten them on before. When I auto program it only adds 2-13. Do I need to manually program them and how do I do it?

I'm sorry for the difficulties you're experiencing in getting the few channels. I suggest that you unplug the TV to perform a power resetting and then perform auto programming to resolve the issue. Please let me know if the issue persists.
TV's of this era have two modes that the tuner can work in. One is the AIR mode and the other is CABLE. In the air mode the tuner picks up only "off air" frequencies,... and up to channel 13 they happen to be the same as cable channels 2 thru 13. If you are using cable you will need to go into your on screen menu and find where to change the tuner from "air" to "cable" to get channels above 13. Older sets had a switch on the front and sometimes the back to select the tuner mode.
I don't know the exact step to set it because I don't know you model TV. When you go to menu set channels it should give you the option to choose cable or air. If you pick cable all your channels will be in VHF which is what you want. If you pick air the first 13 channels will be VHF and the rest will be UHF which cable don't work on. After you pick cable then auto program and you should get all your channels.If this helps you and I hope it does give me a vote please.
Hi there..You'll need to go into the menu options of the TV and the scroll down to the option that list, cable, air and other options.Put it on cable and the exit the menu.You may also have to run a channel search.Hope this helps you and have a great day..
You might need to go into the menu options and set the input from cable to air or vice a verse. The tv in my kids room is like that if it's set to cable with no input at the cable jack then it only gets one channel even after you try to add channels.
Make sure in the on screen menu that the tuner is set for CABLE or AIR
depending on whether you have cable or an antenna. The channel
frequencies are the same for ch 2 thru ch 13 but everthing above that
is different depending on your source.
Hope Ya Fix It!
Apparently your TV is set to the "standard TV"
position. Before you auto program your set, set it to the cable mode and then do the autoprogramming.
In the standard TV setting, you just get off the air channels 2-13 vhf and 14-83 uhf.where as in the cable mode you get vhf channels 2-13
plus your cable channels.
