There should be a phone number in the label on the back for assistance in setup.

Hooked up an antenna to a 55HDS69 and now I have no sound on some of the local channels what would cause this?

Most likely the set (in its menu) is set to SAP or secondary audio program==this is for channels that offer simulcast of programs in English or Spanish etc.

Look for the setting and if SAP is highlighted try to select Stereo.

Does emerson model #20s5b have a switch to convert from cable to satilite?

It's in the channel programming menu. It should say, "Cable/Ant" or "Cable/Air" If you want a roof antenna with local channels, change it to "Air/Ant" Then click auto program with the antenna hooked to it to scan for free local channels.

The unit is telling you to run autoprogram to program in your channels, make sure also the TV is in cable mode and not TV mode which is for local channels, If you have cable do a autoprogram so the set can program in channels. Auto Scan is the same as autoprogram.

Screen message- channel fixed. how do I get it to program channels in our ares ( direct tv satellite system)

If you are on a sat system then you only need one channel programmed, if you are using the cable input, if you just want the channels scanned for a local antenna, then you need to go to the menu and go to programming and change the cable/ant to ant and program.

Cant program chanels

Make sure that you are not scanning in cable mode, to get the local channels you will probably have to scan antenna, this will be in tuner set-up

How can I receive local channels on this tv? I do not subscribe to cable and only want local tv channels. I purchased antenna, but no luck. I only get ION channels

Hi my name is Roety,
I can help you with your issue ,
all you need is an antenna then run the auto scan programming to lock in any available channels.
I roof or attic antenna would work better than an indoor antenna  
If I have helped you with your issue
If you have more questions you can still respond
I will reply asap

How do I set my PT-44LCX65 up to receive broadcast HDTV signals.

You should use the auto-program function in the customer menu. It will prompt you to select which antenna input you wish to program and then ask if you are on cable or receiving signals via "air" or "broadcast" mode. Allow the TV to load all the channels. You may notice that the auto program mode may move along quickly during the addition of analog channels and that during the scanning of the digital channels that it may look like nothing is happening. Patience is a virtue here. Wait until it has completely scanned both analog and digital bands and you will recieve both versions of the station's signal. If, for example, you have a local channel 5, the digital version will be 5-1, and so on.

Good luck!
