MGA 1989 19inch standard tv. - model #CS-1946R

I just purchased this off Ebay. Certain cable channels I pay for and receive on all my other old tvs do not come in on this tv. It skips right over them and there is no way to program the tv as to get these channels. It won't let me even try to type these numbers in. It just jumps to the next available channel.

Try this. I the control box under screen (with a door) is a botton TV/CABLE.HCR. Try pressing this button to get more channels. Mine was on TV, but needed CABLE. Best wishes.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

I have Dish sattelite and it won't work with memorex under cabinet. They said I need a cable box in between the dish receiver and the tv. Why is this?

You need a receiver for each TV you want to receive the reception on. Your dish receives the broadcast signal from the network and your receiver decodes and recodes the signal to view on your TV. The companies have created their own proprietary equipment to accomplish this to keep anyone and everyone from simply installing their own dish and receiving all of their broadcast channels for FREE. In the olden days when satellite and cable TV was new, that is exactly what people did. Remember those gigantic dishes some people installed in their yards? They would intercept the signals coming from the satellites and hook up directly to their TVs. The companies got smart and started to scramble the signals going up to the satellites to make these home owner dishes obsolete. Because the signals are scrambled, you now need a receiver to un-scramble the signal. I hope this helps and good luck. Please remember to vote d368a18.jpg if you found this helpful. Thanks.

The colour has gone on all channels - analogue and digital. The set is 3 years old HD Phillips the digital receiver is also defective as it keeps switching channels

Probably not the TV as for it to work in black and white the colour has to work. Possibly a cabling issue between digital receiver and TV

Can't receive cable signal

You may have to go into setup and ensure that the input is 'CABLE', If you have an 'INPUT' (or TV/VCR) button on the remote, try it.

On cable that has CNN & BBC. how do I tune to receive? no manual

Give auto tune or go for manual tuning and try it.. But most probably the old model TVs may not have the particular band width capability to show those channels...
