Problem with channel changing

My problem is similar to the one posted today by ajjm10306ny. My TV is plugged in. Cable connected. When I press up/down change channel buttons I get only: Input 1, Input 2, and three channels (10, 12, 70). The TV doesn't respond to remote control. I have GE universal remote (bateries are newly charged, green light shows when the remote power button is pressed). My cable bill is paid. Why can't I manually change to any other channel? Why doesn't remote work? Please help. Thanks.

Re: problem with channel changing

You must program the tv. Go into the MENU and find AUTO PROGRAM. Then program it and it should work.

Cannot function to cable? what will i do? they did not give any manual when i purchase

Standard CRT TVs generally have a couple of inputs that BYPASS the tuner portion built into the TV. If you are using a standard coaxial connection you should see the signal from your cable box on either channel 3 or 4 (you may have to set your TV to search for signals in the TV's setup menu). Otherwise you may be able to use a composite connection that uses a cable with tree plugs (red, yellow and white). When these are plugged into the cable box out put and the corresponding plugs on the tv, then tune to "input 1" or "input 2" by changes the channel downward below channel two. You should see your cable signal. Then you change channels using the cable box only and not the tv. Your manual may be available at no charge from the manufacturer's website.

Which external tv tuner will work for SONY kv-xf21m80 model

To by pass the tuner use a cable, satellite or other box that has its own tuner--use the audio/video outputs the box must have and connect to a similar INPUT on the TV---leave set on that input and change channels with the box used.

My cable channels dont work only 52 53 &54 series Lxi Tv

Try connection with a cable box that uses the audio/video output jacks and connect to a similar input on rear of set---you may have a bad tuner in the set and going via the AV jacks from a box to the set will bypass that.

Not sure what channel to put TV on to receive DISH channels

Hey there, Cheri Torres with DISH Network Internet Response Team here. I came across your post and wanted to see if I could help. The channel that you would need to put your TV on would depend on the type of cable you have plugged into your TV and receiver. If the cable you have plugged into the receiver and TV is a coax cable (black cable with silver end) the channel would need to be on 3 or 4. If the cable is a RCA cable (black with red, white and yellow tips) the channel would need to be on an input such as Video 1, input 1, input 2, aux etc. The other cable that it could possible be hooked up with is a HDMI cable (black with a thin flat end) the TV would need to be on a HDMI input. You can find the inputs by pressing the input, TV/video, source or AUX button on the DISH remote or TV remote. I hope this information is useful and if you have any other questions please let me know.

Can not make the instalation betwen my tv and my dvd player

Most DVD players today have only RCA jacks for video and audio outputs, and don't have RF (channel 3 or 4) outputs. If your TV doesn't have AV input jacks (either too old or just not supplied on your model) you can't connect the DVD player directly. You'll need to get an RF converter to make the connection.

An RF converter costs about $15 and you'll find them where you can buy TVs. The converter takes the video and audio signals from the DVD player and creates a channel 3 or 4 output signal to your TV. If you don't have the cables already, make sure to get them too. You need a "dubbing cable" (RCA plugs on the ends, usually color-coded red, white and yellow) to connect the DVD player to the converter input jacks and an RF cable with "F connectors" on the ends for the output to the TV. Often the dubbing cable comes with a new DVD player, and the RF cable with the RF converter.

If this takes care of your connection troubles, please take a moment to give my solution a good rating. If I've missed something and can be of more help, please post a followup comment.

Input problem

If you have the original remote, hit video, source, or input button, if it dont have them, then try to change the tv to channel 00 (zero or zerozero), if not then the channels might have to scroll to it, from channel 02 down to make it loop, if it goes to the next highest channel, then you need a remote. It may be set in the menu options to have the video source not saved to your list of saved channels. when you scan the channels, the tv might not look for the A/V source (audio / video), maybe just the RF source. The 3 DVD RCA wires are 1 video and 2 stereo, one stereo for left and one stereo for right. The TV has only 2 , 1 for video and 1 for mono 1 channel sound. This wouldnt have anything to do with why you cant use the DVD player. but try that with the original remote (or a universal remote that is set to your tv set that has either video, input, source or something similar. It is what tells the tv to change from the cable source (RF) and the AV source (the Red White and Yellow plugs, in your TV's case, 2 plugs, one yellow and the other either red or white or something). Dont really know how to explain it much more but hope it helps.
