One of the setup menues should have the option for the signal type of Air/Cable. You need to switch to Cable. There are overlaps in the frequencies which is why you can receive some channels up to 12 or so.
You should be able to navigate these menues from the front panel or the remote.

Connected the coaxial cable to the tv but got no channels. the tv turns on but all I have is snow


Some possible things to check:

1. Are you trying to receive off-the-air broadcasting? If so, you'll need a digital converter box. This set doesn't have a digital tuner, so there won't be any channels for it to receive without the converter.

2. Are you connecting a cable from a cable converter box, satellite receiver or FiOS set-top box? Your TV will need to be set to channel 3 or 4 to see the signal from the device.

3. Make sure the center wire in the plug on the end of the cable isn't bent over, and that it extends far enough (about 1/8 to 1/4-inch) to make a good connection.

4. Do you know for sure that the cable you are connecting is working? Is there actually a signal on the cable? It may be disconnected somewhere else (at a splitter, for instance) or there may not be any signal source.

5. Have you tried another TV to test the cable? If the cable works with another set, the tuner or antenna connector on the snowy set may be bad. If the cable connector is tightened too much when hooking it to the TV, the connector may be damaged and this can cause the snow.

Start by checking with a known good TV. If that one is snowy, you can check the other possibilities. If it works, you'll know the problem is in your set and can decide what to do (repair or replace).

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya.

Setting up a new TV


you will receive upwards to 150 channels (depends on how the tv is designed) you will not receive all the channels which you receive on the tv which has the "box". You will need an addtional box if you want to receive essentially any 200 or above channel.
Hope this helps

I have a Sony Trinaton XBR about 6 years old. Works great. Have Comcast cable and they recently installed a new cable box. Now I get all cable channels on "Video 6 - DVD" rather than "Video 7 -Cable Box"....


Hi,
I was awaiting your response in chat session but could not get any thing.
Please hook cable box in Video input-7 instead of Video input-6 in TV and select Video input-7 with remote on TV.
Regarding continues on-screen display of video-6, press Display button on TV remote once, on-screen display will disappear.
Thanks.

Sony Wega TV --24F... does it need a converter?


No. all flat screens have converter chip built in.
If you are having problems getting channels, make sure you go to the settings, and broadcast settings, and make sure it is on AIR for regular tv, or CATV for cable.

Sony TV KV-32v26


Do you mean basic CABLE channels or Aerial channels? If aerial, what kind of antenna are you using (you must have SOME sort of antenna... rabbit ears, set-top, etc...)?

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

Can't get any tv reception


My friend, you need to hook up a signal source such as an antenna or cable . The channels wont come in and it will all depend on where you live and how close to a major city on what and how good you will get the stattions. then once an antennena is connected, do the auto programming again. Good Luck
