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.

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

The mitsubishi model vs-60805 tv will provide air channels off of cable hook-up, but does not provide cable channels. What needs to be done to recieve cable channels? The menu does not provide an apparent...

Mitsubishi VS-60805 is 1999 model tv and unable to receive digital cable channels because it is equipped with analog tuner that can not receive cable channels because it is almost 11 years old.
You need to hook Cable Box in AV input of tv, plug digital cable in cable box and get digital cable channels in tv. Cable box has its own remote control and inbuilt digital tuner to receive all digital cable channels and widely available in Store, Radio Shake, etc.
Let me know if you have additional question.

My rca has no picture the screen has a snowy picture is if it was on the wrong channel through my cable box.

More information would help. What are you running the signal into the TV with? Coax? Separate video/audio? To test the set if you have a vcr hooked up or available to hook up, input it into the tuner input and play a tape. Set the tv to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever channel the output of the vcr is set for, this can be determined by checking the menu or a switch on the back if it is an older vcr). If your TV is ok you should be able to see the tape which is playing. If not, and you still have snow you probably need a new tuner in the set. Let me know if you need more help.

I just got cable hooked up and I'm trying to watch tv on an older Orion tv/vhs. When I go to menu options I can go to all of them except the channel set. I know the cable connection works because I hooked...

Try switching between Cable and TV on your menu. Or you can insert a VSH and when you eject it, you should be able to bring up menu and do a reset.
Make sure the cables into and out from are in the correct positions, as a cable signal go to the output will not work.
I'm sure you have checked the connections in and out but just needed to make sure !
Do you have a remote for the Orion, without the remote, you may not have the correct functions available to function properly.

You're talking about picture-in-picture. Simply hook up a second source or split the one cable input you have now into two leads with a splitter from somewhere like Radio Shack. Then bring up the PIP and select the input. Now you have two different things to watch each from their own channel. This wont work if you have dish... But you could watch the DVD perhaps if you hook it into one of the available inputs in the back of the Tv and select that input in PIP mode.
Good Luck!

Programming digital channels

The problem is not with your TV. You need a digital box to unscramble the channels.

The cable should be on the Input to RF connector. Then you should reprogram tv for cable channels. If you have dvd then it should go to the inputs for 1/2/3 A/V inputs yellow for video, red for right audio and white for left audio. Color coded! Hope this helps!

Remote not working

Hi Suzanne. What you need to do first is get or have the original RCA remote available. next, go into the menu and do whats called a channel search, but you will need an antenna or cable line attached to the RF input of the TV set, Do whats called an auto search. Let the set complete its cycle. If it found no channels, then there is no input sourch or you have a bad tuner or its assoicitated componets. it should be in the owners manual on how to do this. If you do not have an owners manual, get one here*&brands=RCA%2cGE%2cPROSCAN%2cRECOTON%2cSPIKEMASTER%2cAR%2cJENSEN%2cAMBICO%2cADVENT%2cUNBRANDED&doctypes=IB&categories=ACCESSORIES%2cAUDIO%2cCOMMUNICATION%2cDTVS%2cDVD%2cMULTIMEDIA%2cCOLOR_TV%2cVIDEO&firstdocnum=1 If you need a new remote or original replacement please go to Good Luck please do not forget to rate this thread.
