Re: westinghouse TX42F430S

Channels with a decimal are digital. You are probally getting the through the air. Currently mine are all the digital versions of the normal channel. Ie: 5.1 digita version of channel 5. Your's maybe different but if there over air it is probally a local station in digital and you should be happy.

How do i add a channel to a westing house tv?

Simply contact their support at the following link: but know what your model number is (not the serial number).

I think you are not allowing the scanner to actually find the channel before switching out of the menu. I can think of no other explanation for both manual and auto functions to fail (unless you have a lemon).

If you do not have a manual, you can try one of the alternatives below.

Or, you could try to google for the manual for your particular model of Westinghouse TV and find the procedure there. Below I simply list a couple of manuals that may be applicable but clearly are for two models of Westinghouse TVs.

Manuals Online offers a simple to understand procedure (if you can download the manual, I have trouble reading it in my browser for some reason). The information is on page 43 of this alternative.

It has diagrams of the menu.

Pages 35-38 of another manual covers both automatic inclusion and manual addition of channels on a particular Westinghouse TV.

I have a Samsung hdtv but its not playing in hd.I have it hooked up to cable straight from the wall bypassing the cablebox.Is it the tv or cable?

You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box.
Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.

Does sk-26h590d have HD connection

It might have a built-in HDTV tuner or it may require installation of an HD converter box. If you see decimal channels such as 3.1, 29.2, etc. you have an HDTV tuner. If you see channel numbers without decimals such as 3, 29, etc. you will need to install a converter box

We have an antenna. Can't get Ch 3 on this tv to use our vcr/cd.

If you did a channel scan to build the channel list, the up/down channel will never bring you to 03, but you should be able to manually add the channel through the on screen menu system.
Alternately, simply punching in 03 (or 003) on the remote should force the TV to tune in channel 3.
Be sure the vcr is tuned to channel 3 as well, some are 3/4 switchable and default to channel 4 not 3.
A last resort if you can't get any of those to work is to get a cable splitter and run it in reverse with the 2 ended side going to the antenna and vcr and the single side going to the TV and doing another channel scan while the vcr is playing.

If none of these work, I'd need to know more about exactly how everything is hooked up.
ie - if the VCR is hooked into the component input on the TV, you need to switch the TV to A/V or composite or component rather than channel 3 etc. etc.

New TV doesn't register being HD ready during test TV stations do

Try going into the setup menu and make sure it is set to antenna then do a channel program. You don't need to wait for a test there are plenty of channels already there. Both digital and analog channels are still available so you will still a message that you are not receiving digital if you are putting it on an analog channel. The channel number has to have a dot(.) in it like 8.1, 24.1 If there is no dot you are on an analog channel

I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV. Model # SK-26H590D. It will not scan channel 9. I have tried both the automatic scan and the find channel scan. It is hooked to a Phillips Mant 510 vhf/uhf indoor antenna...

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.
