Magnavox tv has cable channels 2-13 only. Lost original remote. Using a universal remote. Tried to auto program. It started scanning but when channel 14 came around, just fuzzy snowy picture all through...

The set needs to be switched from antenna to cable in the setup menu. It is capable of either antenna reception or cable reception. Ch 2-14 are the same frequency for antenna and cable but above 14 they are different. That is why the picture is stoping at 14. After you switch it to cable auto program again. Thanks for using fixya.

Static jumping picture

sounds like bad connection or bad tuner in the tv - have you tried playing a DVD or VCR tape ( if available ) - more info would be needed to help you further -such as - are you on cable, cable box, satelite or antenna and do you hook up to your TV using the a/v or RF(cable) input.

Try running the antenna or cable through a vcr and then hook the VCR to one of the video input of the TV (use yellow red and white out of VCR to TV) Try changing channels with the VCR.

I have a jvc tv model av27530. Disconnected cable box b/c going

You probably have to find your original remote to the set and go through setup in your menu. On most sets, there will be a menu item which will allow you to switch from Cable mode to Air mode. If you have no Cable connected, then you must set tuner in Air mode.

If you are using an external device to run on channel three, then try this:
Make sure device (rather it's a vcr or game console), is hooked up to your Antenna Input connector. Also, some of these devices will have a small hidden switch on back that says 3 and 4. Move the switch to 3 position. Turn on device. Go into TV menu and do a Channel scan. This should auto program any device hooked up to the TV antenna input jack to channel three.

Keep in mind that you may not receive anything by Feburary of this year without an HD converter box to tune in channels with and outdoor antenna.

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42

If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

Program satelite or cable

you are not specific as to programming cable or satellite .if you have cable tv with a cable box there is no need to program tv channels.the tv should be left on channel 3.check the back of the cable box & tv it may also be connected thru rca/s-video or componant cables meaning the tv should be on a line in/source ,or video input. for a tv without a cable box
you can do the auto or manual programming. no need to be on channel 3. if you have satelllite tv you need the box to hook up to your cannot bypass this box unlike cable tv.also check the back of the box for the other possible connections
good luck

Digital reception

Check the menu screen to see if you have an option to program digital channels . If not the answer is no . If you are on cable or satelite then you need not worry as the only people who will be affected by the digital change over will be if your on outdoor antenna or rabbitt ears only with your tv. Your cable and satelite providers will not change you over on feb 19th 2009 . Everythung will be the same . Good luck
