Changing TV set up to cable from "air"

I originally auto set up my new Toshiba TV to "air", now hooked up to cable, but can not get back to the screen to change to cable! So TV is blank!

    When auto set up came up for the one and only time, I was going to use an antennae, but changed my mind and bought coaxial cable and connected to my satelite in other room with splitter. But now I can't get back to set up screen to change from air to cable setting.

    I have the exact same problem - My Toshiba TV does not seem to let you toggle between Cable/Air except from the auto-setup screen, which seems to be launchable only the first time you power-up the TV.  If so, this is insane.

    Are you still using the coaxial connection or are you now connected with rca (yellow,white, red). If the input changed, you will have to select the correct input (tv/input).

Try setting tv to channel 3 or channel 4, this should coincide with the back of satellite box (a little black switch with a 3 or 4). then switch channels with your satellite box. I would recommend using another output off the satellite box to feed the other tv, a splitter loses some signal quality an can go bad as well. get a long rca cable to feed tv!

How do I stop the aspect ratio from auto changing on my flat screen set up as the monitor for my computer?


When you set it to just scan the source will determine the scan. I would remove the bose from the unit and connect the cable or sat box directly to the hdmi in of the tv. if the problem persists check Samsung web site for software upgrade. If upgrade does not fix replace the main circuit board.

I bought a new TV for my #2, but is says I'm not getting a signal when I hook it up to the cable. I have it on channel 60

You can go to TV 1 to make sure TV 2 is suppose to be set to channel 60. Did you run the auto setup on your TV? If you have already run the auto setup on your TV, unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. This will make the receiver reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. Then see if you get a picture on your TV 2. If not, the last thing you can try is changing the channel from 60 to 73 through the receiver.

With your DISH remote at TV 1, press the Menu button - Main Menu will display on the TV 1. Then press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 5 (Modulator Setup). On the Modulator Setup screen, move over to TV 2 Out and select Cable, then press select on the remote. This will automatically change the channel from 60 to 73. Highlight Done on the right and press select. Cancel out of each screen till you get back to the TV screen. Go to TV 2 and put the TV on channel 73. You should get a picture. I hope this helps.

Hi,

I have few options for you to get the video back on HDMI:
1. Try out changing the video resolution on HDMI set up (select 480p..1080p).
2. Play NTSC disc (to get the 60Hz out from Player). If your are in US.
3. Select the TV system as AUTO/NTSC to get the 60Hz out only on HDMI.
4. if the Deep Color option is available in HDMI set up menu..set it to OFF.

Let me know if you tried all these and still no output.

I have a jvc tv model av27530. Disconnected cable box b/c going


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.

Ps3


not really sure what happened, but if you put the component cables back in the tv, making sure the ps3 is in stand by, then as switching it on hold the power button for about 5 seconds, it runs the optimal screen settings page, and should auto select the best option for the cables fitted, if this does not work , then do all of that again but with original cables fitted and it should be back to original settings(how it came out the box) hope this helps

Changing to "Cable" from Antenna without a remote


if you have a cable box, just put the tv on channel 3,or a aux input.[depending on your hook up] if it's cable without a box,go to the menu setup screen on the tv look for a air/cable setting, choose cable. then do a auto program search.

Hisense flat screen has locked


Try turning the main power switch on the back of the tv off.
Then hold the menu button and push that switch back on while still holding the menu button.
Keep holding the menu button until the setup menu pops up.
Next, be sure your input is set correctly(air or cable).
Next, do an auto channel search.

That did it for me. After I shut it off I had to do it one more time but it did the job. A friend of mine gave me the tv for free because nobody he new could figure it out. I took it home, got lucky, and figured it out in about ten minutes.

Hope this works for you. line-gry.gif
