Channels only go up to 14 then bluscreen after that, i have basic cable that should got to channel 64, i am using universal remote so i have to fix from tv

Check antenna cable setting in menu. If you have it on antenna and cable plugged in, you will not pick up anything past channel 13. Change it to cable setting in menu.

No problem. Go into menu to channel or tuner setup.. When it was unplugged the tuner reset to air and needs to be changed to cable and then auto program the channels..

Skips past all channels after 13. CableVision

I don't know the exact step to set it because I don't know you model TV. When you go to menu set channels it should give you the option to choose cable or air. If you pick cable all your channels will be in VHF which is what you want. If you pick air the first 13 channels will be VHF and the rest will be UHF which cable don't work on. After you pick cable then auto program and you should get all your channels.If this helps you and I hope it does give me a vote please.

I can only see 13 channels... why is that ?

If you have your TV connected directly to a cable system without a converter box, be sure the TV is set for "cable" or "CATV" tuning. You'll probably find it's now set for "air" or "antenna" mode. In that case, you'll only get 13 channels. Channels 14 and up won't be found. Switch tuning modes, let the set scan channels and you should have the full selection.

Hope this has helped. Thanks for using Fixya!

My toshiba tv only goes up to channel 12, when it reaches channel 12 it starts back at channel 1.

You will need to re-scan the channels, i don 't know where it is on the menu of this set. If you are on cable, you need to make sure your tv is set to cable tuning, or you cannot get channels past channel 13. Same is true for antenna if you are on antenna make sure you are set for this.

I have a Samsung HL-S6186W 61" DLP HDTV I could get the hd channels over the air with an antenna before but now I can't get any thru cable without going thru my dvd recorder tuner first which degrades the...

Select TV input, Press Menu, Select Channel, in menu Antenna=Cable (for you), (then perhaps, Auto Program with Cable or Air+Cable), tweak Channel List, turn on LNA if needed, shouldn't be.
Somewhere there may be different modulations, some offset the channel a fraction and are important for channels above 13. I'm basing this on my non-cable Samsung HL-T5687.
BTW, I had an HLS until it gave trouble, paid for an upgrade to LED from bulb when I got HLT. Very pleased, until it fails. -Ken

I am trying to get channels above 13. I do not

Try bringing up the menu by holding both volume buttons down at the same time (or use menu button on remote if you have it). Go into CH SET using the channel and volume buttons on the front of set (or use the SET + and - and the ENTER buttons on remote). Go to the TV CATV line and move the arrow to CATV. Let menu time out. This will put tv into cable mode. Hope this helps.

Sometimes TVs get reset after a power failure in which case it may default back to the setting it was prior to the initial purchase.When this occurs some, all, or noneof the channels may be locked. Go to the tv menu and run a channel scan this should find all the channels you want however you need to ensure you are scanning the proper source such as cable for cable or antenna for an aerial outdoor antenna. If you have satellitte you may need to power the STB off using the button on the STB itself. If that fails it may be a line of sight issue such as dish being moved by external forces e.g. windor kids.
Hope this helps you.

Channel set

Apparently your TV is set to the "standard TV" position. Before you auto program your set, set it to the cable mode and then do the autoprogramming. In the standard TV setting, you just get off the air channels 2-13 vhf and 14-83 uhf.where as in the cable mode you get vhf channels 2-13 plus your cable channels. Stargazer
