By connecting an external antenna, you can see local on-air transmissions. Have to do an auto-tune after connecting the external antenna. Refer the TV's user manual for details about how to do an auto-tune to this set. If you wish to get some details; visit the site linked here.

Cant seem to be able to get my local channels. i have a 52


I would suspect all the stations have gone away from over the air broadcast or gone digital for antenna reception---there are boxes available which will convert so the antenna can still be used.

Well i plug in the wii and i took it out but when i took it out i guess i pulled out the wrong plugs and now the tv won't show a picture or play audio


It sounds like you've disconnected your wii and are now trying to watch tv on the same input as your wii once was. You need to check your television for a button labelled "input" or on older model TV's "tv/vcr".
A trick you can use is simple: find the remote or use the channel up/down buttons on the television. Change the channel. You should now be watching your cable!

A side note: If someone else set up your television, they may have used a different input for a cable/satellite box. In this case you would just need to press "input" until something comes up on the screen.

What channel is the tv needed to be on to get cable, i push the wrong button on my tv then now is unable to get back to the cable channels.


Most cable TV systems that use a set top box or converter output on channel 3 or channel 4.

If you have HD cable service however, you probably watch on one of the A/V or HDMI inputs (Video 1, Video 2, etc.). Simply press the Video or A/V input selector, slowly & repeatedly until a picture & sound is seen and heard.

I have a small elemet tv with a en21645e remote control. My grandson did something to the remote and now I only get the local channels not cable channels although I have cable hookup


Hi there,

The little tyke has most likely pressed the INPUT button on the remote control and switched the TV away from the external input setting required for watching cable TV.

You did not state the model number of the TV and some TVs function differently with regard to the selection of external inputs, but you should be able to return to watching cable by pressing the INPUT button slowly but repeatedly until you can see the picture from the cable channels again. The INPUT button is located in the top right corner of your Element remote.

If an input selection menu appears on screen when you first press the menu button, use the arrow keys to highlight another input, then press ENTER to select it. I can't tell you which will be the correct input as I don't know the model number of the TV and it depends on which type of cable you are using to connect the TV to the cable box. You should try each input in turn until you are able to see the cable channels again. Please make sure the cable box is switched on when doing this!

If you are still having difficulty, please reply to me from within this page with the model number of the TV and the type of cable you are using to connect the cable box to the TV. I will then be able to provide exact instructions for switching your TV back to the cable input.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Could you tell me why the tv insignia channels swich fron 2 to 3 channel, and the tv value is going up and down by itself? Because I"m not able to watch my programs. Can You help with this?


if you have set top box ,go to main menu ,check on restore factory settings ,put in default password 0000 and press ok,restarting the set top box automatically,waiting for some minutes.

restarting starts scanning all channels one by one and put them on their respective location in channel store.

now ,enjoy with all channels.

same process is done with tv if u have't any set top box ,only RF input from ur cable operator.

How can i watch cable tv.


I assume you are not trying to steal service, that you just want to use your cable signal on a TV without using a cable box. The NTSC (analog) and clear QAM (digital) signals will work on many recent TVs. Encrypted signal require a box from your cable company. BTW, the cable company are not allowed to encrypt local channels but will certainly do it for all premium channels and may do it for all digital channels except the locals. This assumes you bought a TV with QAM.

Cable channels wont program above 27 w my basic cable


Hi classmom2,
I will be happy to help.
You have probably tried this but I will go over it anyway. If it dosn't work we will try something else.
From the video menu on the tv, select the tuning band of CABLE not AIR. Then do a Auto-Channel Search.
From what I gather you have basic cable without a cable box correct?
Let me know what you find and we will go from there.

Philips LCD 17PF8946/37 TV not working


The good news is that the "No Input Signal" message means that your TV is not broken. If you are trying to watch cable, then you have simply turned the TV to the wrong input channel. If your cable comes into the Philips using a coaxial cable wire, use the Philips remote to change the channel to Ch.3 or 4 - whichever channel you normally watch cable on. Make sure the cable box is turned on if you have a cable box. If the cable box connects to the TV using another type of wire, use the Ch+/- on the Philips remote and go through all the AV channels until you find the right one. Good luck! Let me know if you need additional help.
