    Same problem with a Combo TV-VCR 13140

    I have tried to change the settings with an all purpose remote control (Sony RM V310), having also lost the original. Unfortunately I cannot locate the button which allows one to select cable. I get the menu, but cannot do a thing with it...

    My other problem, does this TV set have a limited number of possible channels, like around 12 ?

    Thanks for helping me out

    Our remote quit working for on and off but we could still change the channels with it. Then when I had by room painted the man disconnected my cable and when it was reconnected I just get static like the cable isn't connected. It is a 13 year old Toshiba TV

    I wish it was that simple with mine. I can get to the setting options to try to do that, but for whatever reason, can't get the remote to switch to catv. Only goes up and down, not side to side under the "Setting". So odd cause it never did that before. I can go side to side under the "options" tab, but not under any other one now. So frustrating cause all I need to get it to do is go to catv. I'm destined to only have 16 channels unless somehow this fixes itself or a miracle happens I guess. Out of the blue just won't go side to side now. :(

Your TV must be set in cable mode for channels higher than 69, and your cable provider must allow those channels to be received without a cable box. Menu, Channels, switch air to cable, run auto scan. If it receiving those channels unencrypted, it will find those channels.

How can I Program this to comcast digital cable.


Most universal remotes work the same. Try this. Just keep in mind when you select your item select cable.
Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

Note:
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.

Can't get the tv to move from the cable mode


Wondering if this is what your asking about, I cant find reference to Cable only mode...

- Line 7 : “CHANNEL BLOCKED”
Indicates that all channels are locked except the selected channel.
The following complaints may be generated due to locked channels:
- TV cannot be switched on from standby with the local keyboard buttons.
- “CH+” and “CH-“ buttons on local keyboard do not function.
To disable the LOCK feature:
Select ”FEATURE” menu (with the Remote Control).
Select “LOCK” (with the Remote Control).
Set to “OFF”

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670
