Question about LG 42LC2D 42 in. LCD HDTV
I have recently purchased an LG 42LB5D. During initial setup, auto channel scan cannot detect the channel 3 my Dish Network runs through. I know it's not the actual connection, because I had a similar TV hooked up the same way and it worked fine. Could it be that the tuner is faulty? Please help!
Make sure the cable connection from the dish to the tv is
connected to the antenna/cable input and not the digital
input. Turn on the satellite receiver then auto program the
set with the receiver still on. If this fails to lock in channel
3 your suspicion regarding a faulty tuner could be correct.
A good way to check the tuner operation would be to hook
up another product such as a VCR with the rear switch set
for channel 3 and see if you can receive a picture from this
device. If it works the tuner is OK.
You can bypass the tuner by connecting an S-Video cable
and (or) a set of A/V (yellow,red & white) cables from the
output of the satellite receiver to the video 1 input on the tv.
You'll then have to switch the tv source mode to video 1.
Hope this of some help,
