You just can't. Not without an external receiver.
Your TV is simply missing a piece of hardware - it is called TUNER - that can understand the signal that runs through the cable (or an antenna) and decode it into simple video signal.
So the only solution is to buy an EXTERNAL TUNER device (also called external receiver or external set top TV box).
Those are rather cheap compared with what they used to be, but if you care for an advice from professional it is: sell your TV and use the revenue towards the purchase of a new one. All TVs currently in the mainstream sales channels have that thing built-in.
Some of the older models that you will find on Craigslist (like yours) do not.
it is usually not a problem for users with cable TV because most cable TV boxes also have a built-in tuner. If you are talking about how to connect your TV to your local cable company then the right thing to do is call your cable operator and tell them you want a newer receiver that outputs standard composite (one yellow one red one white) or component (green, blue, yellow and white and red) - if your TV has the later.
Hope this helps. If it does please rate accordingly.

It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted
due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:

The Picture in Picture
(PIP) on VIZIO televisions works on multiple input sources. This means
you have to have signal or a device connected to more than one input on
the television and have both inputs selected to display the information
going to them. Here is an example. Let's say you have an HD cable box
connected to your television and you would like to have more than one
channel displayed on the screen in order to keep an eye on both football
games at the same time. With one device connected that's not going to
work out the way our TV functions. What you want to do is get
a coaxial splitter and two extra coaxial cables; these can be found
anywhere home theater equipment is sold. Then follow these steps.
1. Turn off both your cable box and television.
2. Take the coaxial cable that comes OUT from the wall and connects to the IN of your cable box and disconnect it.
3. Connect that cable to the IN on your coaxial splitter.
Connect your two extra coaxial cables to the OUTs on your coaxial
splitter. We will call them cable 1 and Cable 2, just because.
5. Connect cable 1 directly to the DTV/TV input on your television.
Connect Cable 2 directly to the IN on your cable box, this will be the
same connection you removed it from in step #2. Your HD cable box should
still be connected to your television with either an HDMI cable or
Component cables (Identified by their Green, Red, Blue colors for video
and Red and White cables for audio.)
Power on both the cable box and your television. Using the INPUT button
on your VIZIO remote select the input connection where your cable box is
located your cable box picture should come up on the Main screen.
Press the PIP button on your VIZIO remote to bring up the small box in
the corner. Press the PIP input button until you select the TV input and
you should be ready to go. You may need to perform a channel scan with
your TV tuner to locate all available channels before you do this step.
In order to understand better how to perform a channel scan please check
under the F.A.Q.s in the discussion area of your particular model
In order to change channels in the small screen use the PIP CH - and + buttons located near the bottom of the remote. You can swap picture in the Main and Sub screens using the swap button and swap which screen will sound off its audio by using the AUDIO button. You might notice an X next to some of the selections in the INPUT and PIP INPUT screens when you have PIP activated. That means that input selection is unavailable and cannot be used. For example, if you have the input TV selected on your main screen then if you press the PIP INPUT button and bring up that input menu you will see X's next to the TV and AV selections. The X's mean that when you have TV on the main screen you won't be able to use TV or AV on the small screen. Instead you would need to use any of the input selections that do not have an X attached to them.
