Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels


It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

The tv s autostore will not retune


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 ) .....

Sharp Aquos LC 32G4U not receiving any channels-


Most locations are real hard to get local stations using indoor antennas. If you are in a location where you do not have cable, I would try either a outside antenna on the roof or go with Direct TV Dish / Dish Network system.
I hope this helps,

I HAVE A SUMSUNG THAT IS HD, BUT IT'S NOT HDMI,i GET REGULAR CHANNELS, BUT WHEN I SWITH TO A HD CHANNEL, IT IS ALL SCRAMBLED? WHY?


I assume you have cable. The cable HD and digital channels are usually sent in Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM). The cable companies are required to send local channels in the clear but not so for any others. Regular (basic) channels may be clear or scrambled. USA many not be but HBO will be.
So you have 1 of 2 problems: (1) your TV does not do QAM or (2) they have scrambled the channels you want to see. Questions: (1) Have tried direct Over-the-Air (OTA, ATSC) reception for your locals? (2) Can you see the HD local channels on cable? (3) Are you paying for an HD box from the cable company to have the channels decoded? If in doubt contact the cable company.
Current Samsung TVs do do QAM and OTA HD. Alternatives are Dish or Direct to get satellite with an HD receiver using HDMI or 5-cable RCA. Costs are comparable but OTA wins, hands down. -Ken

Auto Search for Local channels not responding


Hi elmergdavis,
Check and make sure your tv is set to CABLE and not to AIR or ANTENNA. This setting is usually just above the Auto Search utility on the meNU.
Let me know what you find and I can provide further assistance.

How do I get my local channels from my VCR.


If you have a cable or satellite converter all inputs are converted to channel 3 or 4. If your vcr is attached to this output you will only get whatever the converter is tuned to. If you have cable, try connecting the cable that's now on the input to the converter to the input of the vcr and then add the channels automatically. However, the converter also descrambles premium channels, so you cannot get them into the vcr without going through the converter first, and some digital cable channels will not work on all vcrs. If you use the converter, always leave the vcr on channel 3 or 4 or use the converter video/audio outputs. You will not be able to record one channel and watch another without some additional hardware including an rf switch, rf splitter, and more cables.
