SOURCE: no tv signal on my olevia 232-s12

cable or Ant.. ? after the scan if there is no channels found (0 digital, 0 analog) then try with cable or Ant to see if any of them work.. if they still don't pick up any channels and the whole yellow progress line goes across.. then it sounds like the tuner on the tv is bad.. and the tuner is part of the main-board so the whole main-board will have to be exchange or repair.. contact Amergence technology they are a 3rd party repair center that service Olevia TV's and they will be able to give you an idea on the repair cost..

SOURCE: Can't get HD channels selected on tv. Tried auto search with HDTV port connected and the menu selected to HDTV

Hello, the HDTV input is what you would use if you were not using a cable box.
You should connect your cable from the wall to coaxial input on the cable box, and connect an hdmi cable from the hdmi output on the cable box to the hdmi 1 input on your tv and then switch the tv to that input.

SOURCE: channel scan only finds 1

the LG will scan several tuning bands TV, DTV, CATV, CADTV
you must let it work through all of these in programming mode.
use the channel up and down button to see just what it has picked up.

the Manual Channel menu will allow you to add or delete what channels you want to surf.

if your programming in unsuccesful, unplug the TV (power) for five seconds then plug back in (reboot)
and attempt the complete setup all over again.
if it still fails, your tuner is bad...which means you need a new main board.

How can I receive and record cable channels on my Sony SLV 750 vcr? The tuner only displays channels 1-99 on the vcr. Thank you.


I will be assuming you have analog cable TV service, no cable box. If you have a cable box, the instructions would be different.

There are many steps to properly setup your Sony VCR and they should ALL be setup to correctly record channels, however just to cover your question here....

Press MENU on the remote control for the VCR and you should see on your TV screen, the main menu options. Select TUNER PRESET. Press OK. Set Antenna/Cable to CABLE. Next Select AUTO-PRESET. Available channels will be scanned. This may take a few mins. so be patient. Channels could go up to 125. This should make available cable channels ready to record/view.

You can ADD or Delete a specific channel also if one is missed or undesired by selecting MANUAL SET.

HOW DO WE TUNE THE TV FOR DIGITAL CHANNELS


If your using basic cable then just use auto program and the set does the rest. You will only get the hd stations your cable provider provides using basic. If you use their hd cable box and pay for more hd stations then you will have more.

Hi,apparently when tuning my brand new television, there's only a possibility to pick 27 channels, even when there's more to receive With my previous television (smaller en cheeper) I had more...


It depends on the number of preset channels provided by the processor or the extend of the range of the Tuner in your set. Being a new model please consult with the manuals for the range of the tuner.
Alternatively having set top box/ digicable can solve the issue as your cable service provider can update the estimates.

I am using cable, no box, I want to program in the channels. The channels 1 thru 22 are already programmed but I want to add 23 thru 79 channels I can't figure it out.


The TV might have an auto programing function, which should tune in all available channels that are being delivered thru the cable/from the cable company.
