I am assuming it is a new TV. You probably need a cable box. I have no idea who your cable provider is or if it is coming from another source. You also have to program the TV for the correct input.

SOURCE: atenna plug pulled out of tv, how do i get a signal now?

It has always amazed me how many "F" connectors get pulled out of tuners. I know because I've replaced hundreds, usually successfully, saving the cost of a new tuner. You need to unsolder the tuner from the board and remove the side cases. If the tuner board is not damaged beyond repair, (if it is you have to get creative), a new unit can be soldered in place. Put everything back together and you will be in buisness. New "F" connectors can be purchased from MCM Electronics at www.mcminone.com, part #215543 for $2.50. I always use a new connector as the old ones are usually trashed. Reliability is compromised if you don't use a new one. Technically you do not need the cable hookup since you have composite inputs. For my money I would just hookup a VCR (with a tuner) coming out of the VCR composite jacks into the TV composite jacks and use the tuner on the VCR leaving the TV in Aux, or whatever they call the composite inputs, and call it a day. It's you're choice but using a VCR tuner is faster, easier, cheaper and if you want to play a VHS tape you're already hooked up! If you are a traditionalist and want the TV 100% remember to be safe while working on it. Good luck whichever way you go.

When i try to play my x box on my sanyo tv no sound comes out of the tv


Try a different HDMI input and a different cable.

DVI is same as HDMI in regards to the picture signal, but lacks the audio.

Apparently for some reason the TV does not pick up audio and that could be because the HDMI port has a problem (say physical contact) or because the cable has a problem or (of course) because the XBOX does not output signal for some reason.

My first two picks would be the port and the cable.

hope this helps!

Does not pick up cable satellite signal


Do you have the satelite hooked threu the regular cable input? If so hook it thru one of the video inputs instead; composite video or component video. the picture and sound will be better and you will be by-passing the problem area of your Tv ( the tuner).

Problem hooking up DVD player to TV thru my cable box


Chances are you've got your DVD player hooked to OUPUT jacks on the cable box, not inputs. I haven't yet seen a box that takes any kind of an input other than the cable line, but they will have RCA jacks for audio and video outputs on the back. So your cable channels are fine, but the DVD signal is hitting a dead end.

The only solution if your TV doesn't have RCA inputs for video and audio is to get an RF converter (around $10-$20). This takes the A/V signals from your DVD and turns them into a channel 3 or 4 signal that connects to your TV's antenna input.

The converter also has a connector on the back for the cable coming from the cable box, since you'll have to disconnect that from the TV. When the DVD player is off, the cable box signal gets passed to the TV as normal. Turn on the DVD player and the RF converter switches on; put your set on channel 3 or 4 and you'll see your video.

One final thing: The converter will need an AC outlet for its power adapter or power cord, so make sure you have a spare. If you don't already have your TV and DVD player connected to one, this would be a good time to pick up a surge-protector outlet strip. Then not only will you have enough outlets, you'll be protecting your equipment as well.

If this solution has given you what you need, please take a moment to rate it appropriately. And thanks for asking here!

Vga audio in


VGA does not provide sound, only video signal.
to get sound, you need to run a signal from the audio output of the computer (1/8" mini) to the audio in of the TV (RCA).

Unstable signal


Hi,
Are you sure it says unusable signal instead of unstable signal.
This means that you have the wrong input in place in the tv. If you got the original remote with it there may be an input button. on it. Some RCA's use 00 for the video input. If your cable goes directly to the antenna connector on the back you should get all channels when you do auto search in the menu provided you have the right input programmed. If you are using a cable box the tv must be on channel 3 or 4. video input uses rca cables red white and yellow to the proper input on the tv but there again the input must be set correctly. Possibly in the menu do a search there. Hope this helps.

TV turns on, but no sound or picture from any of the inputs


I don't know if I had any lightning, but it is possible because my DVR/Cable box was operating on limited capacity right before this started. I unplugged everything to reset the DVC/Cable box, and when I turned the tv on, I got real tv sound for a few seconds and then a "no signal" message in the center of the screen. This happens every time I turn it on. It is not the DVR/Cable box because I hooked it up to another tv and it works fine. It's not a bulb because I would still get sound...like this other person, none of my inputs will pick up the cable. I really don't want to just have a random service person in here to charge me to figure it out if someone can lead me down the right path to getting it fixed. Please help, I love this tv and don't want to replace it. LH
