Question about Westinghouse SK-26H590D Television

1 Answer

I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV. Model # SK-26H590D. It will not scan channel 9. I have tried both the automatic scan and the find channel scan. It is hooked to a Phillips Mant 510 vhf/uhf indoor antenna on the first floor. My older TV is hooked to a digital converter box and has no problem finding channel 9 even when using the same indoor antenna located in the basement.

    I hooked up a GE amplified indoor antenna to my JVC LT-47X579 TV. When I go to settings and then TV, the tuner option is grayed out so I can't change it from cable to air. What do I need to do to get to the option? I see in some of your answers you talk about a converter box. Do I need one of those? Thanks.

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

Does sk-26h590d have HD connection

It might have a built-in HDTV tuner or it may require installation of an HD converter box. If you see decimal channels such as 3.1, 29.2, etc. you have an HDTV tuner. If you see channel numbers without decimals such as 3, 29, etc. you will need to install a converter box

About 8 months ago, every time I turned on the TV (SK-26H590D), only vertical lines would appears... almost like watercolor: green, orange, etc. However, you could hear the channels and change them as...

Get into Menu Operations and come to the window video reset. You can get this in its manual section [1-6]. Reset all video sub menu items to factory reset. Check out after this reset process whether the problem solves or not. If not its video card has some trouble. Contact and enquire them about the nearest westinghouse Authorised Service center of theirs to you. Thy only can set it right. OK.

After the dreaded "Switch" I lost nearly all free HD channels. Prior to the "Switch" I got roughly 40 HD channels. Now I have 2 that work. Can anyone not named Dubya explain this?

I had a similar experience. The way I solved was to go back to the set-up and have the channels get re-scanned in. Even though I had gotten channel 22-1 originally the frequenciy must have slightly changed with the switch over because once the television rescanned it in it worked just fine.
