I am not sure what happened, but we moved the tv into my daughter's room and now it will only show the air channels? Any advice on how to solve this problem. The remote that we have is a universal remote and while acessing the menu there isn't an option to switch from air to cable...please help!!

If you have another TV fed from the same antenna, I assume you have a splitter/distribution amplifier because you know you cannot just join two cables together don't you?
It is more than likely the splitter/amplifier, cable or connections rather than the TV but to make sure you must move the TV in the other room and try it on the suspect cable before condemning the TV.
Signal problems are usually due to water ingress and this could have happened on just one cable.
Failing that, the TV input could have failed. It is not common but does happen now and then.
There are no analog channels anymore as far as I know, if you mean the channels that are local and provide an off the air signals, you need to connect an antenna for off the air signals, it may be possible that at your father's place the off the air signal was strong enough to receive them. Try going in to the menu signal type select "Air" to see if that makes a difference, of-course you will lose the cable channels until switch back to "Cable" .Hope this helps, KA
Yes,Used ur tv remote.Push the button said Menu.Go into ur tv MENU go to SETUP go down to Ch.setup or something like that on down to all the option of the SETUP menu.Look for 2 words like AIR or CABLE.Pick CABLE if ur college dorm offer pay tv services.Press the Enter button to scan for pay cable channels after it done scanning for channels tv should have picture and working.
You didn't say what model number, but check the setup menu to make sure it is set for cable (if you are using cable) and not AIR. Otherwise let me know the model number and what you are using for signal (cable, satellite, etc.)
Could be bad reception and or make sure the tv which was in the cable mode when you had cable now needs to be in air or antenna mode. IF you have another tv that works ok then you will know the channels just need to be reprogrammed for over the air signal. Go into the menu of tv and find program channels and switch to air or it might say antenna..
Yes,Go to the tv menu,go to SETUP,go down to CH.press and select AIR.Will scan for over the AIR channels,u will get all the free air channels.After this u will get all the local channels,and other free air channels.
before you try to change the channels, firts look for a button that says tv/video `press it ( some times more than once ) depending on how manny video jacks on your tv until it shows tv again, good luck
You might need to go into the menu options and set the input from cable to air or vice a verse. The tv in my kids room is like that if it's set to cable with no input at the cable jack then it only gets one channel even after you try to add channels.
Most TVs have a choice of air or cable in the menu portion of the tv. press menu go to setup and from there you should see an option that says air/antenna or cable. You will have to either toggle to get the air selection or highlight it. Then you should be able to get to channels you need.
An easier solution may be to go to the Dish receiver that controls the image on the tv you can't get to 73. With tv and satellite on (make sure both green and blue lights are on) press on your Dish remote #1 with the green tab on the bottom the following sequence: MENU - 6-1-5. tHIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE MODULATOR SET UP PAGE. Move the highlight from cancel to the mode section an highlight AIR and press select. Then move the highlight back to the right to DONE and press select. Press cancel three times or view live tv. then go to the other tv and put it on ch 60.
Hope this assists you.
