How do I get TV to scan all cable channels. Have only used the external anten. before, but now want to hook it up to cable. Can't find manual. I can only get it to scan a couple of channels instead of entire cable offering. How do I get it to recognize full cable access?

Re: Won't scan all cable channels.
I don't know your exact model, but from your description, the set is still in the over-air mode. Check the setup menus for a setting for cable/air and set it to cable. Once that is done, the autoprogram should work. Many of the newer models will scan both options at in sequence, but not all. Let us know if that does not resolve the problem.

Used the tv remote go into tv Menu goto SETUP go down Ch. enter pick CABLE and enter again.Tv now will go into auto scanning for CABLE channels.After the auto scan done for the CABLE channels are finish.After this u will able to go to channel 60 to used the dish remote.
You probably have to find your original remote to the set and go through setup in your menu. On most sets, there will be a menu item which will allow you to switch from Cable mode to Air mode. If you have no Cable connected, then you must set tuner in Air mode.
If you are using an external device to run on channel three, then try this:
Make sure device (rather it's a vcr or game console), is hooked up to your Antenna Input connector. Also, some of these devices will have a small hidden switch on back that says 3 and 4. Move the switch to 3 position. Turn on device. Go into TV menu and do a Channel scan. This should auto program any device hooked up to the TV antenna input jack to channel three.
Keep in mind that you may not receive anything by Feburary of this year without an HD converter box to tune in channels with and outdoor antenna.
You could have problem in SSB board the one that has tuners on it to replace ssb borad 253.00 plus labor Repair cost 445.00 use your external jacks for video see if you have the channels then. No more then 2 missing channels verses no channels and SSB cost,I would leave it alone. But if you need any of the boards to this set call 1-800-648-6657 UED
