Question about JVC HD-52G886 52" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I need help!

My tv is hooked up to a cable line but when I search for available channels it only brings up two. I know my cable line is good because I hooked it up to a different tv and it got all of the channels. I have the original remote but for some reason it just won't find all of the cable channels.

    It's on the right hookup as far as I know the cable guy is the one that came in and hooked it all up. I have two connections on the tv and we tried both but neither seems to work.

    Yea I have tried everything I can think of and the only two channels it gets is one that plays little house on the prairie all day and a church channel. But I have the people who I bought the tv from coming in to fix it today. But thanks for trying anyways.

88Amber, are you sure your connecting the cable to Antenna input? many tv`s have more than one screw on connector on the back of the set, your menu may be set to "Antenna 1 " and it`s possible you have the cable attatched to Antenna 2, check your hook-up with a flashlight, hope this helps

    OK, did it work when the cable guy left? What 2 channels does autoprogram find? And if it worked when the cable guy left what was changed if anything? It`s obvious that autoprogram is functioning it`s got to be that the tv is not getting the info or the tuner is not functioning.

How do I change Channel default on start up


Use your remote. Press menu and look up initial set up or reset to factory settings.
* Note that as of Jan 2018 most cable companies do not provide analog outputs to TV sets. If your still using Channel 3 for an input to your TV then it won't work or will stop working some time this year.
* Hook up your TV using the old RCA video/audio jacks; Yellow plug is video, Red is audio right, White is audio left.
* You can also use an HDMI cable (best) for High Def picture which is all the rage for HD TV.
* You may also connect using the DVD style cable hook up which uses 4-5 separate cables (3 for colors and 2 for audio)
* Once you have some sort of video or message on the TV screen then you can proceed to setting up the cable box. Have the cable box hooked up and on for at least 15 mins. Look at the cable box display till the correct time is displayed. Power up the cable box till you see the power on indicator. Now use your TV remote to select the correct input you hooked your cables t. (probably HDMI) The display should show you your cable service. Now use the cable remote to select your channel.
* If you don't have a cable box but still have digital service (usually called basic cable - no premium) then use the analog/digital input on the TV remote and select initial set up. There should be an automatic channel search and set up to scan all the channels available on the line your connected to. This will take up to 15mins. If you know the specific channel you can cancel the scan and pick each channel for you own list. Letting the scan run may help you find other channels you are unaware of.
* Final; if your still having problems then call you TV MFR support line and they will talk you through to check your set.
* You can also check the cable company support line if the TV check out okay. The cable company may or may not be able to supply you service for really old Tube style TV sets as most if not all TV's are digital now.

TV is showing no signal. So I did a channel search and it stops and says unable to continue channel search due to error. I even unplugged - left for an hour and still does the same thing. I then hooked...


this could be a fault with the tv actual connector for the cable check the connection on the tv and try again or try a manual search to pick up one channel and then do a full scan also are you doing a scan to add channels to the current list as I would personally try and do a complete scan for all new channels list and see what happens

I cant get my tv to get the regular cable channels. i just hooked it up to a new connection, it has no digital box, it runs straight through the cable. ive done the channel search and i dont know what else...


If your TV has a menu button, go into the menu and try setting the input of the TV to the jack that you connected your cable to. Sometimes the TV will not check all the inputs and just does the default one when you do the auto-tune search function to find the active channels. Also, check to see that your wall receptacle is actually hooked into your active cable TV line. You should have a splitter somewhere in the same line that your other TV is using. If not, that jack that you are hooking up your new TV to is probably not active.

I don't know how to set the tv to receive all of the channels


Enter the "menu" and select auto program. This will allow the set to search for all available channels. There is also a possibility that when you hooked it up the little wire center conductor in the cable might have been bent over when you hooked it up. Check that first.

How to program the TV to utilize cable channels


Go into the menu on your tv via built in button on the tv, or the remote. Look for something that reads "Program Mode" or "Program Channels"

Tv's have to search for channels that have a good solid frequency if they are just hooked up. newer tvs do it automatically

Don't have cable anymore, now I don't have anything


No. Sorry but your gonna need to get a pair of rabbit ear antenna. Hook it to where the cable was and do a channel search. It should find the available local stations for you. Good Luck
