My TV Sharp 26 SB1 LCD PBS channel breaks up

My Sharp 26 SB1 LCD over the air signal gets all channels fine but 1/2 the time New York channel 13, the PBS station breaks up badly. Tried differnet antennas and different locations with same result. Other TVs in the house do not have the problem.

    only very weak distant OTA channels have any problems. Tried different antennas, different amplifications, other TVs other channels all fine, fine on the Sharp 40% of the time, 60% channel 13 breaks up. Moved location of TV in house, same results. Did the reset, nothing happened, scanned channels stayed up. Eliminated 13, rescanned channels, same result.
    Thanks anyway.

Do any other OTA channels break up on this TV? Look through your setup options menu for a TV reset (memory or restore default or a similar command) . Do the reset and exit the menus (save the action on most TVs); then return and rescan the OTA channels.

On a different brand of TV this worked. The channel had broken up for several weeks; the reset was used when the channel finally became totally corrupted (no video on one sub-channel, no audio on the other).

Some tuners need a stronger signal to be stable; you may need an amplifier on your antenna.

I hope one of these ideas helps.

    I wish that I could be of more help. Since it is intermittent and a distant channel, I'd suspect interference from weather or aerial traffic (birds).

    My TV where the reset worked was having trouble with the closest station (~15 miles) when the outdoor aerial was pointing straight at the station. Thus it had a totally different issue.

I can no longer receive channels # 4 and # 38 (in Boston), after attempting to reprogram the channels. Why?


In my area, I can't watch anything on CBS, NBC, and some PBS channels even though the transmitters are in Philadelphia and I'm right across the Delaware River in New Jersey. You can try experimenting with antenna orientation or a different antenna or adding a signal amplifier as well as frequent rescanning but results are likely to continue to be disappointing.

TV only detecting channels 2-13 should be detecting 2-63


Go back to the initial set up procedure for your Sharp TV and do a search for active HD channels. They will be decimal numbers such as 13.1.

Try going into your setup menu. Look for a setting for "Cable/Air". Try switching it to Cable and then doing a channel search. If you are using a cable box try setting channel to 3 on tv. Those are the two easiest things I can think of off the top of my head without seeing it.

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

The cable box needs to be set to send different signals when using hd tv and standard tv. Usually a good setting would be 720p in hd and 480p in standard. The tv is working fine it is the cable box sending the signal. If you have another hdmi source such as a dvd player you may hook that up to show the tv is working just fine.

I don't know in what area you live & therefore how strong your reception area will be, but as a general rule an indoor antenna is never the best type of aerial to have to receive digital signals, you will always find that you pick up some good strong channels but more often the rest of the channels will be poor or non-existant & will constantly break-up/freeze etc. The best advice would be to try & fit an outdoor antenna if possible.

New TV won't ''talk to'' old VCR


using the magnovox remote, reprogram the vcr's channels. set it up to use cable not air. when the vcr was unlugged it lost it's channel memory. don't buy new cables, you're getting a picture and sound so that means your rca cables are ok.

No sound on four channels while all other channels sound is fine.


You most likely have the SAP1.gif mode activated. Look for a button on your remote or an item in the on-screen menus of your television1.gif called MTS or SAP. You want to set this to "Main" "Normal" or "Stereo" (or even "Mono") mode to hear the regular television sound.

If it is in SAP (Secondary Audio Program) mode, as I believe yours is, you may hear no sound or a different audio program. Often this is a translation to another language, such as Spanish, and other times (notably with PBS stations) it is an unrelated audio (often music) feed. On some stations there may be no sound at all with the audio mode set to SAP.

Sounds like the signal is probably too strong. The TV is not the problem.

Tv guide/tuner problems


Most likely the TV Guide is broadcast from the OTA PBS channel. I don't know why its being lost. I'm thinking its probably a firmware problem of some sort. Adding the PBS channel back in, making sure the signal comes in ok and leaving the TV off for a while might help.
