Problems setting up

I can only get Channel 7 from this TV. Please help me to set up other channels (ie Channel 2, Channel 9, Channel 10, Channel 6, ABC2 and Bris 31. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. I've had the set since Nov 07 and have not been able to set it up for regular viewing of the commercial channels apart from channel 7.

    Hi

    It's a Palsonic LCD TFTV 386BK - it came with an instruction booklet which is in dubiously phrased English and I am unable to get the other channels working. I receive Channel 7 clearly but that's the only one. I have an amplified antenna. Thanks so much for your support.

    Thanks for the info, Denny!

    To start off, have you accessed your "Channel Setting" page, and performed "Manual Search"? There is a selection for "Fine Tuning", which help you dial in the exact frequency those channels are being broadcasted in.

    Have you tried placing your tv closer to a window, to give a better view for the antenna? You may also try taking plain old speaker wire, hanging it out your window, and touching the other end to the antenna and seeing if it helps.
    Typically, though, antennas are created at a certain length to pick up the proper wavelength (frequencies) for which they are needed. This obviously isn't a permanent solution, but it will give you some ideal as to whether it's placement or just reception in your area.

    If you are unable to get your channels to display properly after that, you may wish to invest in a signal amplifier. Much like your cars radio, certain stations seem to have much better coverage than others. Purchasing an amplifier may help. Here is one you may consider:

    Also, visit the following site, it will help you find the proper antenna to use (requires some personal info, use at your own risk!):

    Thanks for reading, and good luck! If I didn't answer your question properly, please explain what I did wrong. Thanks alot!

Can't get channel 29 to come up. Tv worked fine, then now it skips to the next channel.


Go to your TV settings and manually add the channel. Sometimes if TVs don't detect a signal from that station it Auto deletes that space

My channel 7 keeps freezing and comes up with no signal sometimes for days when it's though my my bush digital recorder box. But when it's just though the tv channel 7 works fine. What's going on??


Different digital boxes and tv's have different levels of RF gain. Some need more signal and some need less to work efficiently.
Possibly your Bush pvr needs a much stronger signal than your tv so the available signal is permanently on the threshold of reception and atmospheric conditions will some of the time reduce the available signal when reception will become impossible for the box but still be above the threshold for the tv set.

Modern Bush is not reknown for being a high quality brand and the purchasers of budget brand pvr's often discover reception or performance problems in fringe signal areas. Because a single aerial must receive a very wide range of frequencies it will be more efficient for some channels than others and so one channel could be a fringe channel and another channel produce a very strong frequency.

The signal strength and quality can be checked for each channel by selecting options in the menu in order to check this theory.

The problem might be solved by replacing the Bush pvr with a premium brand or replacing your aerial for a more efficient type. One of my friends had five different boxes before he gained a satisfactory performance and another friend three boxes and still has problems.
My installation has a new high gain wideband aerial on top of my 3 storey house and a distribution amplifier in the loft to keep the input lead short and the whole lot connected by very good quality double-wrapped co-ax.
I had to add different amounts of attenuation for each box or tv set but in spite of the signal being on average too strong and needing attenuating there are still channels for which the aerial is not as efficient and providing only a weak signal.

Just bought an RCL3210 TV. The odd thing is that the Channel up/down key on the remote control does not change the channel. Also, the up/down channel key on the TV itself also does not respond. When you...


You need to find how to CLEAR the auto channel settings. Sounds like the TV is set to SKIP all channels. Look for a MENU and then look for an AUTO setting that will walk through all channels and set those where you have reception as the "list" that the remote and the Up/Down buttons on the tv will choose.
PS: GREAT writeup on your problem and the things you have tried.

I have a SV2000 TV and DVD combo no remote and need to get on channel 3 for the cable to work. ITs on channel 2 then goes to channel 7 and up .Ineed to get it set on Channel 3 and no setting button on tv...


Try going to a store like Walmart and buying just a universal remote and try different remote codes listen in the instruction manual until you can access the menu and do a channel scan. That's really the only solution I can think of.

Tv problems


Hi,

I am assuming that you are using cable and not an aerial/antenna.

On your concern "...channels do not tune...correct channel numbers...", it is possible that when you re-tuned the TV your setting was set to AIR or STD, try to re-tune again but this time pls verify that you are in CABLE mode. If on the other hand you are using aerial/antenna, then it is the other way around.

Channel 0 would automatically be your Audio/Video (which is where your DVD/VCR is connected). If you re-tune, chances are that Channel 0 ) would be back. To be on the safe side, pls power on likewise the DVD/VCR.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Tuner Problems


OK the tuner may be causing these problems, however first I would like you to go to your menu and set the RF pickup to antenna (This will allow analog channels) then come out of the memu and select a channel in the analog range channel 4, 7, or 9 try to tune in these channels. If this fails then you may have tuner problems the only way to be sure is to use a RF signal generator to send RF through the tuner and see if the video and audio being carried on that signal comes through. Sometimes the Internet connect gets messed up when the TV does not have the proper RF filters this may be your case. Try this use a Cable tv set top box and just set your TV to channel 3 for cable. This should Isolate the TV from the Internet cable modem and provide the signal needed by the TV.
