Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

My 96 year old Mother-in-law has a Sears (SR) Model 580 television. We cannot figure out how to get it to Channel 3 so as to hook up a new Federally Sponsored reception box. There is a panel for pre-setting channels on the upper right side with twelve alphabetically labeled yellow plastic control screws (''A through L''). This TV has got to be 25 years old or more.....Anybody have a clue?? I fear the manual is buried with the Dead Sea Scrolls.....Richard Lee

We are just retiring ours now. What a workhorse, still works great! The horizontal row of switches on the front were pre-set to tune to channels 2-13 (remember, no channel 1?). For channel, 3, depress button second from left. Ours was channel 4, third from left. Like the tech said above, each was also 'infinitey' tunable to any other channel in any band by its adjustment knob.

Those adjustments were marked with letters so you could set ant position to any channel, and the channel know was marked A-L as well. The set came with labels you could put into the knob with the numbers.

Associated with each of those adjustment screws should be a small switch, labeled (if I remember correctly...I was a Sears TV tech over 10 years ago and haven't seen one of these sets since then!) VL, VH and UHF. VL is for channels 2-6, VH 7-13 and UHF 14 up. There might also be a little indicator window showing how far up the band you've gone. There may also be a switch marked AFT on/off. If you have that, turn it off to set the tuning and turn it back on when you're done. Put the switch on VL and turn the adjustment until you're tuned to channel 3. You'll know when since you'll see the programming.

I hope I haven't been totally off base. Like I said it's been a while. If this has helped, please feel free to give this solution a good rating. (If not, please feel free to pretend this never happened!)

Minnnesota model E : threading the machine?


Try Sears. A lot of brands were similar back in those days (because they copied or re-badged other brands), so finding a threading diagram for an old Singer would probably be helpful.

Use tv without remote


Go to Amazon.com and enter the make and model of the TV along with the words "TV remote" and you'll have lots of choices from $5 up for new and used remotes for that TV.

My channels don't come in anymore. The guide comes up but no channels. Yes, the box is on. I didn't touch the settings on either it or the tv. I did reset everything and it didn't help.


Boxes can be a pain. Do you have a Video or Av button on the box that you can try and press.

Sounds like TV is set up Ok otherwise the guide image would not go on the screen. My mother in Laws digital box often gives me curry. (first thing to advise - never buy mother in law technology - the old bag will call your cell phone at all hours to figure out why it isnt working - second words of advise - never give mother in law cell phone number)

First thing to do simply unplug the bloody thing from the power socket to reset it.

Failing this It is often the video mode outputs on the box that are not set up properly. Even though the startup image and guide comes on unless the correct video image output is set up properly you will not be able to view the TV.

Color and tint looks different. There is a green hue to the screen, and adjusting the tint and color does not help.


There is a problem with the connectors desoldering in the tv. My mother in laws tv did this after 2 months. Should be warranty issue if less than year old

My mother-in-law has a Polaroid HDTV woth built-in


I can help you with your Polaroid HDTV.

If the DVD doesn't start when you place it in the player, look for the Play button on the remote control. There may be a TV/DVD switch on the remote that would need to be changed to DVD.

If the manual below doesn't match your TV, please post the model number of your Polaroid HDTV/DVD combo for more specific help.

I hope that helps.
