    Hi, thanks for your time. The TV is an Olevia 537-B11

    I can't change the channel from "1" and setup won't let me change/find/search channels either. There's an orange box around the "Cable" option, where all other options have a green box. I tried to Auto-Channel search but nothing happened. I've tried to changed channels with both the remote control and with the buttons on the front of the TV.
    My DVD player plugged into Source - Composite 2 works fine. Good picture, good sound. My computer plugged into Source - HDMI works fine also.
    My Cogeco Cable box is plugged into the TV via Coaxial Cable, my X-Box is plugged into Source - Composite 1, I haven't tried it yet, but assume it works as well.
    One option I might try is to plug my red-white-yellow cable from my X-box into the back of my Cogeco Box and watch TV on Composite 1. That wouldn't fix my tuner problem however...

    Thanks, Brent

    Oh, sorry, forgot to mention. Unplugged TV and other electronics for 30 min. No change after it was all plugged back in. There was no power outage.

    Hey, good news! I tried entering the channel number manually instead of using channel up/down button and it accepted Channel 3. I now have picture and audio from my cable box again. Strange huh?

    Thanks for your help. I'm gonna hit the advice accepted button now, so I expect that will end my ability to view or respond here. TTFN.


  • Brent Wolters Feb 06, 2010

    Ummm... the solution was helpful in the sense that it encouraged me to keep playing with different options on my remote. Eventually I discovered a working solution by serendipity. I then shared this solution with the expert, in case it happens to someone else...

Hi,

Have you tried to keep it Unplugged for few minutes, say 15 minutes. If not, Disconnect the Power Supply, Unplug it for few minutes and then plug in the Cord and turn it ON.

Do you still receive the same Error?

If yes, Kindly Mention the Model of the TV? Is there any Power Outage as well?

Let me know, so that we could proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    Before we proceed, make sure that your TV tuner mode should be set for "Cable" while using a converter box because the output of the converter is a processed signal just like regular cable TV.

You should be able to get OTA (over the air broadcast) just make sure you have an antenna plugged in and that the tuner is set to AIR.

Setting the Tuner Mode
If you are using a device that is connected to the RF input, such
as an external antenna or cable TV connection, you must set the
tuner mode.
1. Press the MENU button on the remote. The on-screen menu is
displayed.
2. Use the Arrow buttons on the remote to highlight the
Settings icon and press OK. The Settings menu is displayed.
3. Highlight Tuner and press OK. The Tuner Mode menu is
displayed.
4. Highlight Antenna or Cable and press OK.
5. Press the EXIT button on the remote.
Scanning for Channels
Before the TV can detect and display channels and their
associated information, you must scan for channels. A channel
scan may also be necessary when the TV has been moved to an
area where different free-to-air broadcast television channels are
available.
1. From the Tuner Settings menu,
highlight Auto Channel Scan.
The auto channel scan begins.
2. Wait until the channel scan is
100% complete. Highlight Done
and press OK.
3. Press the EXIT button on the
remote.

Can't get TV picture after hooking up PS 2


How many sets RCA ports (for Video 1 / Video 2 so on and on) does your TV have?

TV will not display picture or sound except for 1 station which appears to be 440. I can't change the channel either at the dials or remote. The display says EAS.


DONT USE the remote that came with your TV

use the buttons on the box to change the channel. did the channel change?

usually when someone only has one channel its because they are changing the tv channel not the cable box channel

think of it like this:
the TV is a monitor and should always be on the same channel (3, 4, hdmi, or whatever) its actually the box that tunes and the tv always stays on the same channel.

so if you change the tv channel you are no longer watching the output of the cable box.

USE the remote supplied by your cable provider

How can I receive and record cable channels on my Sony SLV 750 vcr? The tuner only displays channels 1-99 on the vcr. Thank you.


I will be assuming you have analog cable TV service, no cable box. If you have a cable box, the instructions would be different.

There are many steps to properly setup your Sony VCR and they should ALL be setup to correctly record channels, however just to cover your question here....

Press MENU on the remote control for the VCR and you should see on your TV screen, the main menu options. Select TUNER PRESET. Press OK. Set Antenna/Cable to CABLE. Next Select AUTO-PRESET. Available channels will be scanned. This may take a few mins. so be patient. Channels could go up to 125. This should make available cable channels ready to record/view.

You can ADD or Delete a specific channel also if one is missed or undesired by selecting MANUAL SET.

No channel 3, the tv goes from channel 2 to 4, can't use the cable box


Two options...

1. Connect the Cable Box via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) or Component cable if you have a HD cable box and select the appropriate input on the TV to view your programs. This will provide the best picture quality as well.

2. Make sure the cable box is on. Using the original TV remote type in the channel 03 and if this tunes to the channel then go to the TV menu and then go to Set up and then select add/erase and select add.

If typing 03 did not tune in channel 3 then using the TV remote select menu then go to set up and then make sure TV / Cable is set to cable then on the cable box press the channel button a couple of times and then select auto program on the tv.

Hi Someone gave me this old Sanyo TV Model # 31C4760, When I connect it with my cable it catches only basic (13 channels) instead of 60 channels. How should I see all the channels? What should I do?


If it is very old (with rotory/manual channel changer), you are out of luck unless you get a cable box from your cable company - this will let you set your TV on channel 3 or 4 and the cable box will find all stations for you. The cable box goes between your wall cable and your TV.

It your TV has an electronic tuner with a remote, try going into the setup menu and select signal source as CATV instead of antenna.

Please rate me.

I need playback channel for tv to be ch.4 -


Solution 1

How to set the DVD Recorder+VCR’s RF output channel
Turn off the DVD Recorder+VCR, then press and hold
CH (v/V) on the front panel for about five
seconds to change the RF output channel (CH 03 or
CH 04). “RF 03” or “RF 04” appears on the front panel display.

Solution 2

Cable Service With Cable Box
If a cable box is required in your cable system, follow the
instructions shown below. This hookup permits both TV and
DVD Recorder+VCR operation.
To view or record a CATV channel:
1 Tune the TV to the correct video input channel.
2 Set the DVD Recorder+VCR to the output channel of the
cable box using the CH (v / V) or the 0-9 keys on your DVD
Recorder+VCR (e.g., CH3).
3 Select the channel you wish to view on the cable box.

Sanyo DS31590 channel display


I found the solution to this problem . If someone accidentally hits the recall button the display channel will show on the TV screen, To correct this problem hit the Info Button and the display channel will disapear. This works only if you have the standard cable box. I have another TV that uses a dual mode cable box, tried this procedure with analog RCA TV but it didn't work. Don't know if this procedure will work for all display problems, but it worked for me.
