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.

My sister has just bought me a Sanyo 26 inch TV (LCD-26XR9DA) but it won't pick up SBS and ABC jumps all over the place. I have an outdoor antennae and had no problems picking up the channels on my old...

Go to the TV setup menu and autodetect all channels. This should fix it. This is assuming your Sister is not using a set-top box.

In that case, you neet to leave the set on either channel 3 or 4, or use the video/audio input jacks and leave the set on VIDEO IN. The best picture with a non-HDMI set-top box will always be with the AV OUT from the box going to AV IN on the set [the white/red (audio left/right) and yellow(video) connections].

If she is using a set-top box with an HDMI output, connect an HDMI cable to the set and select HDMI IN for the absolute best picture.

Static on all cable channels

The tuner is questionable The problem lies inside the isolation box. Ask a repairman to open this isolation box and resolder the small board. There are two small resistors that need resoldered. This also has the rf connector on it. And you may have him resolder the tuner if this does not fix it. Have him inspect any and all grounds on the main board as well. Good Luck

You gotta have a way to get signal to the tv . If you don't want a outside antenna use rabbit ears .After you hook them up hide them behind the tv then do a channel scan. If you don't pick up all the stations set them on top and scan again or get satillite or cable hd boxes.

Are you using cable to get the picture? If you are, make sure the TV set is in the cable mode,If it is then you most likely have a bad tuner in your set. Good Luck
