If using a box that will be determined by the provider of your cable. 3 is of course the most common but not exclusively used.

Have a used Emerson tc1375a hooked up to cable only gets channel 3 and 4 picture is great. Does it need to be reset or what can I do


Usually a TV must be set to either channel 3 or 4 to receive a TV service provider such as cable or Direct TV. The service provider now controls your channels and broadcasts on either channel 3 or 4. You choose channels from what ever equipment they gave you which is usually not the remote that came with your set. You may need to check the way you are set up. If you are using an antenna go into the menu on the TV and make sure it is set to antennae not cable. This may also be the problem. Good luck.

A channel scan is a vital part of utilizing your cable TV service. When a coaxial cable is connected to a TV, sometimes it will not display any channels until you configure the TV for your specific cable connection and scan for available channels. A channel scan can be applied to basically any type of TV or TV/VCR combo, even if you are missing its remote control.

Instructions
    • 1 Bring up the TV's menu. Look for a button on the front panel of your TV/VCR labeled "menu" or "setup." Press it and you should see a menu appear on the screen. Part of the menu should inform you what buttons you can use to navigate through the menu. If not, try using the volume buttons or channel buttons on the front of the TV and see if pressing those allows you to navigate through the menu.
    • 2 Specify channel scan settings. Once you are able to navigate through the TV's menu, look for the "channel scan" "auto-program," or "auto-tune" option. This may be inside one of the TV's sub-menus such as "setup," "channel setup," or the like. The key of this step is to specify your cable settings before running your channel scan. The "tuner mode" option needs to be set to "cable" rather than "air" or "antenna." You may have to specify what cable type to use, this will be set to "std" or "standard" for the vast majority of cable providers. If you are not certain what cable type you use at home, contact the technical support department of your cable provider.
    • 3 Run a channel scan. Once the scan settings have been set properly, run the scan (usually done by pressing a "start," "scan" or "begin" button.) When the scan is complete, check to see if you are getting all of your channels. Contact your cable provider if you are not sure how many channels you are supposed to be getting.

What channel is the tv needed to be on to get cable, i push the wrong button on my tv then now is unable to get back to the cable channels.


Most cable TV systems that use a set top box or converter output on channel 3 or channel 4.

If you have HD cable service however, you probably watch on one of the A/V or HDMI inputs (Video 1, Video 2, etc.). Simply press the Video or A/V input selector, slowly & repeatedly until a picture & sound is seen and heard.

My toshiba tv only goes up to channel 12, when it reaches channel 12 it starts back at channel 1.


You will need to re-scan the channels, i don 't know where it is on the menu of this set. If you are on cable, you need to make sure your tv is set to cable tuning, or you cannot get channels past channel 13. Same is true for antenna if you are on antenna make sure you are set for this.

Tobshiba tv stays in one channel.


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.

Tv/vdr/cable box


Your hookup is correct- Your VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4, to match the cable box.

Also, the VCR channel output needs to be matched to the TV. If VCR menu options are displayed on the TV then this part is right. If not, then set either the VCR or TV to the correct channel.

Need help viewing all public television channels


Your TV is set for standard broadcast. You need to go to the set up menu and change from antenna/normal to cable mode. In standard broadcast mode you receive off the air programs 2-13 vhf and 14-83 uhf. In the cable you receive 2-13 and cable channels 14 -125 if the set is not too old. When cable channels first came out some sets would just cover 14- 36 or 14- 47 or 14-66 etc. The newer sets cover the now standard cable channels 14-125. Hope this helps you Stargazer
