Re: Digital channels off the air on Sharp LCD Tv
Yes, Go into menu and make sure you have at least rabbit ears hooked up and preferably a HDTV Antenna. If not, a Large paper clip will work in a pinch if you have one, but it won't pick up all channels. Give that a try and then go into the menu under search digital channels then, after you find a few, see what the signal strength is and go from there. Let me know how it works out for you and please give me a good rating. I am trying to do this to make some cash as well. Good day and happy HDTV ING. JAY

The Quasar VV-2002 only has an NTSC (analog tuner). Very few stations with NTSC transmitters are still broadcasting. Only low-power stations were allowed to continue broadcasting an analog signal. Unless you are very close to one of the transmitters, your TV will not tune in the station.
You'll need to connect the TV to a digital-to-analog over the air converter box. (The low-end ones that were free or cheap with the government coupon are harder to find; a few models are still available.) These convert the ATSC (digital) signal to NTSC. Then use an appropriate antenna and follow the instructions to tune in the available OTA signals. Send these to the TV either on the RF or composite Line-in. Set the TV to the appropriate input and use the converter box to change channels.
I hope this helps.
(20" TVs weren't required to have an ATSC tuner until 2007. Since there are reviews for the VV-2002 from 2004, it obviously is an older set.)
I assume this TV has no Audio In and Video In, from your Cable box there's an antenna out or cable out, connect that to your TV's antenna in, and make sure that your TV is tuned in to channel 3 or 4, try those two channels. You can only change channel thru your box, your TV channel is alway's on channel 3 or 4.
Does this particular television have a digital tuner built in? If this is the case, try to search for your channels. There should be a section in the manual for this. If you have an external tuner, check and make sure you have the correct input selected and then change the channels on that device rather than the television.
Like mine, it could be that since the channel 5 fiasco, your new signal may be a bit weaker, and may have only just been strong enough before. I had to dig out an old signal booster, a re-tune again, and bingo all there!
Also, when you go to retune, you may want to use "first Time Install" because it completely wipes the old channel list, and starts a fresh.
You can call this number and ask for technical assistance on how to fix your problem. Sharp customer service 1-800-237-4277. They should be able to help you find answers for your problem. Hope this helps you with your problem.
Go into the TV's setup screen and make sure its tuning mode is set for "cable" (may say "CATV"). I'm not familiar with this set so I don't know exactly what the screen will say, but there should be some reference to channel setup, TV setup, tuning band, etc. It's probably set on "AIR" now.
Normally, when set for off-air reception, the set works properly for channels 2 through 13, and 14 up don't tune properly. Since you're getting channels up to 19, there may in fact be some kind of tuner problem. If the TV is already set for cable tuning, you may have found why the former owner was freecycling it. But check that tuning mode.
Your problems can be solved by using the menu setup on your tv. Spanish is an option you can choose.Also on the menu you select air(antenna) or cable,then choose auto scan.The tv will pick up all channels available in you area.
