Question about Dell W5001C 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Regarding a dell W5001C 50" Plasma TV... when I connect a cable to the digital TV input and attempt to set up the TV, under "channel setup", antenna is selected and cannot be changed. Selection is "greyed out" so cable cannot be selected. Thus I can only tune channels 2-13 on the digital tuner. Any ideas?

Digital tv tuner not displaying picture


. Try putting you tv set to channel 3 or 4. Try your tv in all modes. Check the back also to see if in the right spots with the wires. Check your channel scan status, try it on anntena and try it on cable, run channel scan on both. good luck. Try vcr wires if cable wires dont work. vcr wires are yellow red and white. Try another cable cord sometimes they get old. Try looking at your remote and setting it to tv.

Why can't I use a digital antenna on my flat


Most televisions today have a setup mode for the tuner where it searches for channels based upon the input type. Older sets required the user to input whether or not the source was over-the-air broadcast, analog cable, or digital cable. If you were using your set with the cable or satellite system previously. you will most likely need to run the setup again with the digital antenna and let the set find the channels available via the antenna.

How do I connect my digital tv converter box to this plasma tv. My antenna in and signal out are both co-axial cable. Which input do I use on the back of the tv? Would I use a BNC adapter to coaxial...


Here is a cheap and easy way to connect this for you....

Get a VCR (often times can be found at goodwill or garage sales for very cheap) and connect the coax cable from the output of the Converter box to the Antenna/Cable in on the VCR then connect from the RCA output from the VCR to the TV. Tune the VCR to Channel 3 most likely and change channels through the converter box.....

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Cnannel scan detects no channels


Kingscott,
Make sure the cable connection from the dish to the tv is
connected to the antenna/cable input and not the digital
input. Turn on the satellite receiver then auto program the
set with the receiver still on. If this fails to lock in channel
3 your suspicion regarding a faulty tuner could be correct.
A good way to check the tuner operation would be to hook
up another product such as a VCR with the rear switch set
for channel 3 and see if you can receive a picture from this
device. If it works the tuner is OK.
You can bypass the tuner by connecting an S-Video cable
and (or) a set of A/V (yellow,red & white) cables from the
output of the satellite receiver to the video 1 input on the tv.
You'll then have to switch the tv source mode to video 1.
Hope this of some help,
Caseybee
