You did not say if you were using cable or antenna. If cable, you need to use the remote that came with the TV. Get into the menu and look for channel setup or an equivalent heading. in one of your menu schemes will be a selection fot ant. or cable. Select cable and the other channels will magically apear when you exit the menu option.

Good luck.

No sound on channels

Its a 19 inch set which means:

1 If a single speaker put ear to set to see if any sound or a low hum can be heard from it at all.

2 If set has a headphone jack on it see if sound there

3 If above fail either the speaker/s are bad or you have a audio circuit problem which on a set of this size is not cost effective to repair------------buy a new set.

I get channel until #13 how does i get the other chnnel

TV's of this era have two modes that the tuner can work in. One is the AIR mode and the other is CABLE. In the air mode the tuner picks up only "off air" frequencies,... and up to channel 13 they happen to be the same as cable channels 2 thru 13. If you are using cable you will need to go into your on screen menu and find where to change the tuner from "air" to "cable" to get channels above 13. Older sets had a switch on the front and sometimes the back to select the tuner mode.

I can't program channels above 13

Check your TV settings and be sure to set the tuning mode to cable (sometimes it says CATV). You will find it's set to "air" now. When set for off-the-air tuning, cable channels 2 through 13 work fine, but above that you get nothing. After you set your tuning mode to cable, rescan channels and ou should have everything.

Reception of vhf/uhf channels

You did not mention which set you have, so look for a small switch (usually on the back of the set) or go into the menu and set the TV to the "broadcast" or "tv" mode. If the set is in the "cable" mode, you will not get any UHF channels above 13.
