    I have the exact same problem. When i turn on the tv and do anything, it says what has already been stated in the first box at the top.

    Although, when i wait for the tv to finish scanning, i set the time and finish up, and the tv repeats the exact same thing.

    Any help?

None of the options above worked for my old Panasonic. What did work was hooking up my old Sega Genesis. I hooked it up, set it to ch.4 through the genesis's coax box, turned it on and let the autochannel run. Once it was done I went down from ch. 4 to line. Any older gaming system that uses the Coaxial cables instead of Aux cables should work as long as the console is on when it's scanning channels.

Nothing happening when hit power button....


If you are SURE you have hooked it up correctly, and it sounds like you have, be sure you have it plugged in a outlet that you know that works. You shiuld see the power light come on after turning it on. If it still doesnt work, you have to contact ebay or the person you bought it from for a return.If you need help dealing with Ebay please let me know, ive had to do it b4. Here are detailed instructions and the Service dept number for NES Connecting the NES Control Deck to your TV set There are two alternative methods of connecting the NES Control Deck to your TV set, depending on your type of TV: EITHER: (1) Using the Audio/Video Cable; OR: (2) Using the RF Switch and Converters. Make sure that you are not trying to use both the RF Switch and the Audio/ Video Cable: only one is required. First, compare your TV with the following illustrations (1), (2)(i) and (2) (ii) to determind which method you should use, (1) or (2). If you have a VCR connected to your TV, see below. --- (1) Using the Audio/Video Cable (Note! If your TV does not have direct audio/video connections, proceed directly to Method (2) "using the RF Switch and Converters".) Control Deck Back of TV Set (or VCR) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Video-out jack Video-in jack --- Audio/video cable --- Audio-out jack Audio-in jack Note! Color coding of TV connections may differ from that of audio/video cable and Control Deck. Nintendo recommends against using a rear projection television with your NES as image retention on the screen may occur. To facilitate connection to video recorders, etc., many TVs have special audio/video input jacks. If your TV has such a jack, connect the audio/video cable supplied with the NES between the audio/video out jacks on the NES Control Deck and the audio/video in jacks on your TV set, and then flick the switch located on your TV that changes the TV from antenna reception to direct audio/video input. When you use the audio/video cable to connect the NES to your TV, there is no need to use the RF switch or converters, or to touch the antenna on the back of your TV. For more information on direct audio/video hookups to your TV, consult your TV Operation Manual. --- (2) Using the RF Switch and Converters (compatible with most TVs) (i) If your TV has TWO SCREWS FOR VHF antenna connection, connect the RF switch and NES as shown below. If your TV has a VHF cable connector, please see below. (Note: The existing antenna/cable to the TV should be first disconnected from the TV and then reconnected to the RF Switch. This will allow the signal from the antenna/cable to reach the TV when the NES is turned off.) Rear of Control Deck --- RF Switch -- 75/300 ohm converter -- VHF Screws --- (ii) If your TV has a VHF CABLE CONNECTOR connect the RF switch and NES as shown below. (Note: The existing antenna/cable to the TV should be first disconnected from the TV and then reconnected to the RF Switch. This will allow the signal from the antenna/cable to reach the TV when the NES is turned off.) Rear of Control Deck --- RF Switch --- VHF Cable Connector Note: if a VCR is already connected between the antenna and the VHF terminals on the back of your TV set, the RF Switch MUST be installed BETWEEN the VCR and the TV as shown below: (Refer to the illustrations above for your type of TV connection.) With this hook-up you are still able to record TV programs while using the NES. Antenna -- VHF in (From Antenna) VHF out (on VCR, to TV) -- RF Switch -- TV RF Switch -- Control Deck --- Connecting your NES Components. - Connecting the AC adapter to the control deck Insert the AC adapter power plug into the AC adapter jack on the back of the Control Deck. - Connecting the controllers to the control deck Both controllers are identical and may be connected to either controller socket. However, the controller connected to controller socket 1 becomes Controller 1, and the controller connected to controller socket 2 becomes Controller 2. The distinction is important when selecting and starting games, since only Controller 1 is used to select and start games. NOTE: Do not insert or remove controllers from control deck during gameplay as this may cause game malfunction. --- Operating your NES - To Start Play 1. Turn your television on to Channel 3. (Note: If Channel 3 is broadcasting in your area and interfering with the game, set the television and the switch on the back of the Control Deck to Channel 4.) 2. If your TV has an automatic fine tuning control (AFC), turn it off. (Use the manual fine tune dial to adjust the picture after inserting the game pak as described below.) 3. Make sure that the power switch on the Control Deck of off. Caution!! Always make sure that the power switch on the control deck is off before inserting or removing a game pak!! Always check the game pak edge connector for foreign material before inserting the game pak into the control deck!! 4. Open the Chamber Lid on the Control Deck. Insert a Game Pak into the Chamber (label facing up) and push it all the way in. Press down on the Game Pak until it locks into place and close the Chamber Lid. 5. Turn on the power switch of the NES Control Deck and push the reset button. Note: If the "reinsert" indicator light on the front of the Control Deck is flashing, it means that the game pak is not loaded correctly. In this case, turn off the Control Deck power switch and start over from step 4. Note: When the game pak is inserted properly, a colorful game display should appear on the TV screen. If it does not, or the picture is imperfect, turn the Control Deck power switch off and then on again, and press the reset button. 6. Use the Select button on Controller 1 to select the game you want to play, and start the game with the Start button on Controller 1. Note: If you experience any problems in operating your NES, please do not hesitate to call Nintendo's Consumer Service Department, toll free, at 1-800-422-2602.

I am attaching a digital set top box to this TV Model C21F200 and have a video/dvd player to attach as well. I can't seem to get both working. Can I tune the video to the TV with the set top box attached?


If your TV has AV inputs available, you can connect the video player there and switch to that input to watch it. I don't think your model does, though; I think it has only an antenna input connector. This means your set-top box will connect there but you have no place to connect the video player. In fact, most new video players only have AV outputs, and don't have an RF (radio frequency - a channel 3 or 4 TV signal) output connector, and you'd have problems connecting it anyway.

All is not lost, although you'll need some extra parts to hook everything up. I'm assuming the set-top box (STB) is going to your TV on channel 3 or 4, using a cable from the box to the TV antenna connector. If your video player does indeed have an RF output, the simple thing to do is get a splitter. They look like this:

pgh_pa_guy_13.jpg

Normally, a splitter is used to break one input signal (into the single connector) into two outputs (the connectors on the other side). But you can also use one backwards to combine two sources. So you can connect the RF cable from the STB to one output jack, connect the video player RF cable to the other, and connect the "input" side of the splitter to your TV antenna jack. If your STB is set for channel 3 output, set the video player for channel 4 so they won't interfere. Then you can tune the TV to channel 3 for TV signals from your STB, and to channel 4 for videos. I know, it sounds confusing.

If your video player doesn't have RF output, but just video and audio outputs, you need an RF converter. This device takes the AV output from the player and generates a channel 3 or 4 RF signal the TV can tune in. A typical converter looks like this:

pgh_pa_guy_14.jpg
Connect the AV outputs from the player to the jacks on the converter. The output cable from the STB will go to one of the round antenna connectors on the right, and the cable from the other one goes to your TV. When you aren't playing a DVD or tape, the converter passes the signal from the STB through to the TV. When you turn on the video player, the converter switches and you'll see the picture from the player. Most converters switch automatically, but on some you might have to flip a switch. RF converters are available from retailers who sell TVs or online.

I'm sorry if this seems unnecessarily complicated, but most TV sets today have plenty of inputs for all these things, and usually you just plug in the connecting cables and go. But with older sets or sets that don't offer the inputs, you need to go through these shenanigans. But once you have the parts hooked up, it's not too bad.

Hope this helps, and thanks for using Fixya!

Exactly as you have done is fine all you need to do now is play the tape, (so you know what to look for when it is displayed on the screen), decide which channel you want to view the vVCR through, say 9, select the channel and set the TV to search tune on that channel. Store it when your taped programme appears.
Alternatively, have the set up as you have described and press auto install. That will retune the whole of the TV and include the VCR.
Hope this helps.

Panasonic pv-c1350w channel/clock auto set


You are probably talking about the main menu that appears when the TV is taken off the AC power outlet, to get rid of this page just turn the tv off and on again and it should give you access to what ever channel was tuned before, if your game console has an RF out, your TV should be set to channel 3 ir 4, if the console has composite outs the change the channel until the TV goes to Aux in or Video in. Retrevo.com has an instruction manual available which you can download free, just in case you need more informantion, if the channel keys do not work, then you may have to get a universal remote ,they are fairly inexpensive and will come in very handy at least for the basic functions or just have theTV worked on.

How to set the clock on vcr/dvd.


Make sure the antenna//cable TV connections are correct. Channels are set. If this unit is connected to a cable/satellite box, select the local PBS station on them to set the clock automatically.

There's an Auto Clock Setting. "This Unit can set the time and date automatically by reffering to a PBS station.". But I never had to do that, I just went to Setup and it already knew what the date and time was.

"Note: The clock may set itself automatically after you connect the antenna/cable signal and plug in the power cord. Only the analog PBS channel signal is effective for auto clock setting. The unit receives the clock data at 12:00 A.M./P.M. from the PBS channel when the power is off.

1 Press [SETUP] and use the up and down arrows to select "General Setting", then press OK.
"General Setting" menu will appear.

2. Use up and down arrows to select "Clock" then press OK.
"Clock" menu will appear.

3. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto Clock Setting", then press OK.

4. Use up and down arrows to select "Auto" then press OK.

5 Press SETUP to exit.

6. Press STANDBY-ON to turn off the unit.
This unit will search for the time only when the power is off. Leave it off for several minutes to give this unit time to set the clock.

If the unit chooses an incorrect PBS channel, set the PBS channel manually by following the steps below:

1. Select "Manual" at step 4, then press OK.
2. Use [the number buttons] or up and down arrows to enter your PBS channel number, then press OK.
3. Press SETUP and turn off the unit.

If this doesn't work, let me know and I'll type up the instructions for what to do if you need to actually set the clock manually.

SAVING TIME” option is set to “AUTOMATIC”.
• When the clock is not set, the daylight saving time
setting is not available.
• When there is no daylight saving time in your area,
always select “OFF”.
