    I have a cable service through Qwest. The connections and reception are fine on the LG TV and another TV in the house.

    I have a simple cable connection without a box. This set up has worked fine with good info coming to the TV guide on the LG until recently.

I would call the cable service provider and ask to speak to customer support, we are not experts on every detail, when that is the case our job is to provide u with the resource to resolve the problem, so call quest customer support.

Looks like you have signal problems. What kind of cable or dish company do you use? Because it looks like you might need to call them for help. I have DishNetwork and i had no signal issues, and i call them, they had to replace my box because it wasn't picking up any signal

Do you have basic cable or Digital cable. The listings only come when you have digital cable. If, its antenna then it wont work either. You will only get the listings if you have a cable box.

    If you have the Digital cable then call the service provider for it. Then they will reset the cable box from the company.

My lg 65UF6450 has no TV Guide. It searches for active Channels but finds none. Setting them manually doesn't work either. My satellite TV service is on HDMI2 and works fine, just no TV GUIDE.


I have a TV like yours.

When you hook up an external antennae to pick up over the air channels, the TV will find the channels and display a list.

Your other TV services should come with their own channel guides.

How do I repair an LG 32LK330-Ub Auto channel tuning does not work.


If you have a cable box and your cable is attached with coax to the antenna or cable input you're probably receiving everything on Ch 3 or 4. If you don't have a cable box, then make sure the input / source is set to cable and not antenna.

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

I got an American model of LG. i can not tune it by auto nor manual can you please help


You can get a manual here: http://www.lg.com/us/tv-audio-video/televisions/LG-lcd-tv-32LG30.jsp . Click on the Support and then on the right hand side look for User's Manuals. Since the TV has a tuner for ATSC, NTSC, and Clear-QAM, the next question is what is your signal source? (analog, digital and unscrambled cable)

If you are using OTA, make sure that the input is set to Antenna. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the direction to point your antenna and the appropriate antenna for your distance to the transmitter. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the list of channels you should be able to receive. tvfool gives the stations available with different antennas. If you have several tvs connected to one source, you may need an amplifier in addition to the splitter. This also can help marginal signals come in since digital is either enough for the tuner to resolve or no signal. (Check splitters and amplifiers if you suddenly can't get a signal that you used to receive. Also check if the antenna has been turned.)

Menu > Channel > Auto Tuning or Manual Tuning. If Lock System is active, you will need the password. Auto Tuning only searches for digital or cable channels. The manual tuning option should provide the signal strength as well for digital stations (as well as letting you search for analog signals or all signals (digital, analog, cable).

Use the input Cable for coax cable connections. Other inputs will not allow you to search for channels since they are meant to be controlled by the set-top box feeding the system.

I hope this helps.

My viewsonic N3751w LCD TV won't receive air signal. It has a built-in digital tunner so it should be able to receive several air signal without a need to have a digital to analog converter


Check that your antenna is sufficient for your location and oriented correctly. Try antennaweb.org for the most likely channels; tvfool.com has a much greater list of channels and the antennas needed to receive them. Both sites assume external antennas and warn that trees and buildings around your location may cause interference.

If you have a splitter connecting one antenna to several TVs, consider using an amplifier to ensure that the TV gets sufficient signal strength. Remember digital TV is has all-or-nothing reception issues.

If you previously could pick up the stations with this TV and suddenly lost them, try resetting your TV. Unplug the unit for at least 10 seconds. Also restore the factory default settings and then rescan for all channels. The reset is possibly Menu, Options, Restore Default or Menu, Setup, Memory Recall. (Viewsonic has changed its menus at intervals so look for something similar). Once you find it, click enter then left or right arrow to YES, hit enter again. Then hit menu twice to exit the OSD menu and then re-enter the menus before trying to rescan channels.

Also check that the TV is looking for OTA and not cable signals. Check that the tuner is still working by retrying the scan in a spot you know that the antenna captures a stations signal. Make sure your antenna cable hasn't been damaged by anything.

If you recently had a power surge (lightning strike) near the antenna or cable, you may be in need of a new tuner. (BTDT with an older TV)

I hope this helps.

Black box in middle of screen on 2 channels 42LG70 plasma model T


It sounds like your tv is in text mode for the captions. Try going into the menu, and go into captions, and set it to off. That should solve the problem. If not, do U have a cable box? If U do, try the same approach with the cable box B4 concluding it's something wrong with the tv.

I have the lg du-42py10x tv with a cable card slot. I have Time Warner cable in Cincinnati Ohio. I split their cable coming in and put one end on the cable input and one end on the antenna input on the tv. I now have TVGOS with my cable card. By putting one end of the cable on the antenna RF input, I received the CBS station in analog. That is what you need to get TVGOS to work.
