Re: autoprogramming

On many televisions with built-in tuners, you have to tell the tuner whether it will be connected to cable or antenna, since the RF spectrum is different for these.  Make sure you have cable selected (assuming you are connecting to the cable service) and then try the autoprogramming again.

Doesn't get all cable channels

With the menu set to cable signals, the autoprogram should catch all of the cable channels. The Cable Channel option allows you to use either channel 3 or 4 as the "cable" channel. This is when you have an external box that you use to tune in cable rather than the TV directly. The easiest way here is to autoprogram the TV while playing a VCR tape. That will insure that channel 3 is included.

Does the autoprogram fail?

Tuning problem

Your TV is set to Antenna. You need to go into the menu and change it to Cable. Then do an autoprogram.

Sanyo DS 31520

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 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.

Orion tv model 1934 only 3, 4 and aux no pic or sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Turn the set on, hook the cable directly to the TV, take the remote control and press 1 - 1 and if the TV tunes in channel 11 then your set is fine. If the TV was autoprogrammed when hooked to a cable box then the only channels that will be stored in memory are 3, maybe 4 and AUX. To correct this simply go back into the menu and look for the "autoprogram" option and perform the autoprogram while the cable is directly connected to the TV, without a cable box.

Lost channels 2 through 52

I think the low band (Channel 2-6)in your tuner is not working. This could be in the tuner itself or in the band switching circuits. Possibly she deleted the low channels or locked them out. Stargazer

Will not work with cable

The set has a problem with the tuner itself and there are no resets in this new sets,you should remove the back cover and carefully tap with a wooden or rubber handle the tuner area where the cable comes in to see if a channel would tunes in,if it does react is likely it has loose conections in the tuner grounds or pins,the conector where you screw the cable to can not be loose either,it should be nice and solid,if you are familiar with tv service is something you can try but if you are not too familiar call for assistance from a servicer or just save the money and use a vcr to change the channels using the same imput as the dvd player unless you have two separete aux.imputs. Let Us know if you need more information.
