You will have to purchase cable that was once used to connect an older VCR to the TV. This cable connector will go into the RF connection of the TV to the RF connection on the cable box. If the RF connector you are looking for in the back of the TV is gone...you will have to find a TV tech to attach a new RF connection to the tuner of this TV. Hope this will help with a solution!
sound like a tuner problem. there is a resistor that goes to the tuner that could of went bad 39,000 ohms i think which should have a orange white orang strips around it and a gold. anyway there is a problem with tuner. Sanyo was good about haveing a problem with tuners in there smaller sets. If you do not know anything about how to repair you probly shoud take to a shop but the total cost might be high and not worth it in the long run. think before you jump still water runs deep.
If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.
The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.
You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.
Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!
you are not specific as to programming cable or satellite .if you have cable tv with a cable box there is no need to program tv channels.the tv should be left on channel 3.check the back of the cable box & tv it may also be connected thru rca/s-video or componant cables meaning the tv should be on a line in/source ,or video input. for a tv without a cable box
you can do the auto or manual programming. no need to be on channel 3. if you have satelllite tv you need the box to hook up to your tv.you cannot bypass this box unlike cable tv.also check the back of the box for the other possible connections
Check the menu screen to see if you have an option to program digital channels . If not the answer is no . If you are on cable or satelite then you need not worry as the only people who will be affected by the digital change over will be if your on outdoor antenna or rabbitt ears only with your tv. Your cable and satelite providers will not change you over on feb 19th 2009 . Everythung will be the same . Good luck
Check the cable that you are using. If it's a "single" shielded cable, it maybe letting in "air" frequencies, like you have an antenea hooked to your TV. Especially if you live in a city that has several Tv stations near you. The cable could be to old and has breaks in it, or not grounded properly.
Just fixed ours with the same problem. You need to hit the volume buttons on the remote during the time the screen goes black but BEFORE it gives you the "Connect cables" message.It should trick the TV into giving you a blank channel.
Sanyo TVs are made notoriously cheap, and have little glitches like this. Best of luck, space cowboy.
Ours is doing the same thing except on Video 1. I called Sanyo customer service and they said I need the original remote. They were willing to sell me one for $20. Here is what I did instead. I used a cable box and hooked the cable in to it. Then I took the type of cables that will hook into my video 1 slot and plugged them in there and plugged them into the back of the cable box in the "cable out" positions. It worked ! If you do not have a cable box you might try a DVD/VCR combo or a VCR. Good Luck
make sure your got the right cable mode selected through the remote or autual switch on back of tv. if not it youll only see cable channels up to channel 13 that means in is standard tv mode or air. once you selected cable ...run autoprogram and it find all the channels for you. these newer sets, dont bother with looking for a cable switch, its all done automaticly when you hit that autoprogram button
but it would be in the menu under setup.
