Common problem. take it back, or...
open it up, access the small ribbon going to the display, remove from connector, trim 2mm STRAIGHT across with SHARP scissors, clean contacts, insert ribbon back into connector and secure, reassemble.

Accidently changed something and not able to get antenna tv now - do not ahve cable here at work


I am unable to see at a glance how to correct this but it is between its menu, channel and volume buttons to alter the settings it may be worth to run through the re-tune sequence below?

1) Press the POWER button to turn on the TV.
2) Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears
on the TV screen.
3) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "CHANNEL SET".
Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.
4) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "AUTO PRESET CH".
Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.
The tuner scans and memorizes all active channels in your area.
? The TV distinguishes between standard TV channels and cable channels.
? When AUTO PRESET CH action is completed, the lowest memorized channel reappears on the
screen.
? When you press the CH(annel) ? or ? button after selecting "AUTO PRESET CH", the tuner
will stop at the memorized channels only.
? The TV may recognize TV channels to be CATV channels by the receiving conditions. In this
case, try AUTO PRESET CH action again in the fine receiving conditions.
? When AUTO PRESET CH is activated where there is no TV signal input,"NO TV SIGNALS"
will appear on the display after the completion of channel scanning.
[ADD/DELETE FUNCTION]
1) Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears on the TV screen.
2) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "CHANNEL SET".
Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.
3) Press the VOL(ume) ? button so that "ADD/DELETE" is selected.
4) Use the CH(annel) ? or ? button to select the
channel you wish to put into memory or to erase from memory.
Note: The menu will disappear in about 10 seconds.
Perform "ADD/DELETE" function while this display appears on the
screen.
? Press the VOL(ume) ? or ? button to light up the channel number
in LIGHT BLUE if you wish to add the channel into memory.
? Press the VOL(ume) ? or ? button to light up the channel number
in LIGHT RED if you wish to erase the channel from memory.
5) Press the MENU button to exit the menu.

Hope this helps.

I have optima hd71- ceiling mount hooked to hdmi sattelit tv-and samsung home theatre - hd channels give me full screen- normal channels with 16:9 does not - have 2 vertical grey bars -tried all adjus


You're projector is most likely fine. Check your satellite box. Go to the menu and see how its set to display video. It may be trying to up-convert TV signals. Try different adjustments from there to see if you see any change.

Homepatrol scans but does not stop at any signels


Squelch setting set too high perhaps, reduce the squelch until you can hear something, then turn it up slowly until it start to scan again.
Radio Control Bar
The row of buttons across the top of the Main screen lets you fine-tune HomePatrol-1 reception, access Help, and reenter system configuration.
Button
Definition
Squelch
Sets how strong a signal must be before HomePatrol-1 stops on it.
Range
Controls how many channels are selected based on your location and systems' locations. Small range settings result in fewer systems and departments selected. A selection bar lets you set the range in 2-mile increments. Each screen tap is 0.5 miles.
Atten (Attenuation)
Reduces signal interference if you are in an area where there are a lot of radio signals. If Attenuation is set to ON, the status indicator turns red.
GPS
Displays the status of a connected GPS unit.
Help
Displays Help text.
Tap and hold to redo initial setup configuration.

Hope this helps

My Toshiba 36AF43 won't get any channels with converter box or anntenna


  • Connect the antenna to the antenna input of the converter
  • Connect the R-W-Y outputs of the converter to the corresponding inputs on the rear of your Toshiba TV.
  • Turn both units on. You should see a converter menu displayed on the TV screen.
  • Select channel scan on the converter. You should see a progress bar displayed on the TV as channels are detected.
  • Scanning should finish by displaying one of the scanned channels.

Sharp 32 inch lcd tv won't reconginze channels when connected to antenna. Why? The screen now looks like a defragmenting on a computer screen.


You probably need to do a channel scan to find TV channels and progrma them to the TV memory. Using your remote control select Menu mutton and follow instructions for "auto channel scan"

Time TV


By saying that volume and picture controls work, do you mean you can access the TV's onscreen menu? If so, you may need to re-scan for available channels if you are using the TV's internal tuner. If the memory of those channels has been lost, the TV does not know where to "look" for a signal. You may also need to perform a power drain:

1. Unplug the product's power cable so that the device is not grounded to the house. Do not simply turn off the power-bar if one is in use.
2. Press and hold in the products power button for 1 minute to release the retained electricity from the capacitors and circuit board.
3. Plug the product back into the wall outlet rather than a power-bar to rule it out of contributing to the problem and turn the device back on. After this step, try the channel scan again if it didn't resolve the issue the first time.
