ABC NBC and CBS can be viewed, but suddenly there are no cable channelson my VE 1020. Removed the set and hooked it up with another known good cable hookup, same problem. The cable signal stopped suddenly on the VE1020, but reception of all channels up to 99 is perfect with all other tv's in home. This TV had an extended warranty, which expired in March. Seems pretty crummy for a $750 undercounter little TV. Is there a fix, or am I supposed to be content that I can get the "air channels" and just live with it?

Re: no cable signal
Somewhere in the tv's menu (or a button on the tv or remote) there should be a way to change the tuner setting from antenna to cable. you may have to make the tv run through autotune. a switch or button may be on the back of the set, close to the

The connection would be ideally a SCART cable or a phono AV cable ( red, white, yellow) which are you using? Then turn on TV, then turn on VHS, if the VHS does not show on screen, press the AV/Mode button on remote until VHS on screen!
Does your provider offer premium services, like HBO or STARZ? If so, there's encrypted channels on your cable network. You are not suppose to be able to tune those channels, that's why they encrypt them. These channels travel on the same wire to everyone's home in your neighborhood. If you have the equipment (cablebox) and a paid subscription, you will be able to view these channels
If you have SVGA or Componet video output from your computer here is what you should do. Hook the SVGA Componet cable from the computer to the respective input to your TV. Slect the input on your TV . Then reboot your Computer and it should automatically see the new monitor (the TV) and set the configuration itself. in other words make sure the calbles are hooked up and then turn on the Computer if it's on already then reboot or restart the computer.
There are 4 different types of cables and they have to do with the quality and resolution of what they carry. 1) Coaxial or an RCA to RCA, 'Yellow colored connectors' - Composite video - Lowest quality of video you can get. Mostly what people hook up from their VCR's. '240 to 480 lines of interlaced resolution.
2) S-VHS cable - 4 pins - Carry Chroma 'Color' over the one set of two pins and Luminance 'B&W' signal over the other 2 pins. This is a higher resolution than the Composite video cable - 480 to 512 'still interlaced resolution' or ' i ' .
3) Component cables - RCA ends but there are 3 of them. Red colored 'for the Red video signal', Green colored connector 'for the Green video signal with Vertical sync laid on top of it,' and then Blue colored 'for the 'yep you guessed it' the Blue video signal with the horizontal carrier laid on top of the signal'. This is the higher resolution of 720 ' i ' interlaced or even when selected by your piece of output equipment up to 1080p 'Progressive' resolution if your equipment can output this highest resolution.
4) HDMI - is a cable that not only carries the component but does it digitally along with audio and an ID bit that the Transmitting equipment 'STB' in this case should communicate with your 32" LCD HD-TV so that it will put out the maximum signal 'probably 1080P' that your TV will handle. I would try to obtain an HDMI cable and use this to connect your STB to your LCD for the best connection between your two units. Blessings, A/V Media Guy
Firstly, depending which reception area you are in, an indoor antenna may not give you a good signal across all your channels. If in you put the antenna into the aerial connector of the TV & if in your set up menu, there is an Auto tune option then enter this & it will tune in all the channels it can find. If not then select the Manual tune option & you will need to tune each channel as you find them. Follow the on screen instructions as a guide.
