We go through the entire set up. . .analog chanels and digital channels. . . (we don't have digital) The screen goes to the beginning channel 3 and does nothing. If I forward the channel, the screen goes black and will sometimes go to standby. This is the second tv set because the other one blew its picture tube. Now this one won't even set up.

The cable companies take the signals for your basic channels and resend them through the cable as analog so the customers that still plug the cable direct to their TV can still get some programming without the added costs of digital cable boxes on every TV.
This option will be slowly phased out over time but for now it is available.
I came across this problem yesterday. Digital channels sound... Analog no sound. press the tv button on your remote to change it from DTV/TV
go to any channel you want. press the menu button then go along to Sound setup. In there you will see quite a bit. I went down to an option in there.. it was sound input or something similar. this was set to BG I changed this to 'I' and the sound came straight back on. Hope this helps you out.
If you are receiving digital signal and channel is fuzzy, something wrong. Only Analog signal is fuzzy. With Digital it is great picture or nothing. For channel 6, check to see if they are broadcasting in digital yet. If they are not, this is why you are not getting a signal. If they are broadcasting in digital, then you need a stronger antenna.
You must have a converter box for the tv and for the vcr. Set the vcr to receive chanel 3 and set the converter box to the digital chanel you want to record. Put a splitter on the antenae out and route one to the tv converter box and one to the vcr converter box. GOOD TO GO.
you need to go into the menue, under setup and chanels, do the auto program, it will memorise all the chanels that you can get, analog, and digital, after that, just type in an analog chanel, if it goes to a digital chanel, hit the chanel down button
What you are describing is either a fluctuation in the signal strength for a particular channel/channels or a momentary lapse of the actual broadcast signal. The reason why the picture freezes instead of just getting some static in it is because the signal is digital rather than analog.
