I believe that the new flat digital antennas have a coax/cable connection on them. In the menu of the tv. You should select TV or Antenna for an input. You may be lucky and connect the antenna to your cable connector and get some local channels.
You should give us the model number of your set. As each tv is just a bit different.
look on the back of the TV and see which input you've connected a cable to. unplug the cable at the TV and then plug it back in and do the same thing at the other end of the cable,this is just to make sure cable is making a good connection. then put the TV on whatever input
i think in your TV...... design ..... is such that once channels are autostored it cannot be retuned ..... so you try this ...... it may work ......... disconnect tv antenna cable ( or local tv channels cable ) from your TV & then click autostoring (auto tunning ) ..... definitely it will scans (search for channels ) ..... but since no cable is connected no channels will get stored ...... but previously autostored channels will get removed ...... so now again connect your antenna cable or local tv cable & then click autostore ...... it will scan for channels .... like this you can retune ....... but remember again you may get same quality of picture which you got earlier ..... if you want better quality of picture you have to use signal amplifier (increases cables signal's strength - then picture quality improves ) .....
Do you subscribe to cable television? If you do, you will need a cable box to decode the signal, otherwise unless your local provider offers a free to air service, your TV will not be able to decode the cable signal. It is important to know wether you are connecting your TV to a cable socket, or aerial or satellite, as these are all very different signals which your TV may not decode.
This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.
1.Set your TV settings first,if you are installing a cable then set your TV to cable mode but if you seek for local channels set your TV to antenna with NSTC set to program. 2.When tuning make sure that the antenna is connected to the tuner and use a good antenna. 3.If the following procedures above did not remedy the problem,the next procedure is now internal repair. Warning: This should be done by an expert. a.Try to replace memory IC b.If not remedy,try to replace tuner. c.If not remedy,adjust IF and replace crystal.
Before you bought your new TV, was the cable connected to an older TV, and was it working?
When you say you screwed the cable connection to the antenna input, did the cable come directly from the wall, or did it go through a cable box first. If it came through the wall without a cable box, it's possible it's not an active cable account, and you're only getting over the air signals for your local channels (and nothing through the cable). Or, your cable signal might have been analog only, and with the transition this week to digital TV, maybe you're no longer getting the channels broadcast properly.
If you are a cable subscriber, then this problem should be reported to the cable company, and they can do further testing to see what's wrong with your signal.
To get local over the air channels, you will need to connect an antenna as your signal sourceinstead of Cable on the back of the set. Then you will have to go into the TV menu for signal source and select the Antenna/air option. Then you will have to go to the auto program/scan menu and scan in the stations. This may take a few minutes. Now you can watch local stations for free.
I believe the FCC "must carry" rule require cable to carry local stations also.
IF I understand you correctly, the VCR, Satellite, etc is connected using an RF modulator/coaxial cable wire going into Antenna in
IF this is true, then you have an AV IN port (red, yellow, white) free on the back. Just connect the red, yellow, white from the out of the DVD - you can use 1 or 2 - just remember which one you used; and connect it to the AV IN on the back of the TV.
THEN press ch down on the TV remote until you get to "AV1" - it is below channel 2; double check DVD player to make DVD is playing and voila!
