CANT GET CABLE TV SIGNAL

Hello

i hoked up the cable directly to the back of the tv and scaned for channels; i got only sound and scrambled channels (changed the setting from ant to cable)

i hoked up an RCA VCR to get the cable to work but it didnt; i had to get an old panasonic VCR to get it to work; but is seems to me it should work with out a VCR

i have satellite tv also and i had no problem with that only Cable TV
can it be that the cable connector is damaged the TV is 1.5 years old

When you hooked up the VCR or the Sat did you use patch cables? Sanyo had a lot of problems with tuners going bad. if you used patch cables you by pass the tuner so it will work

Vizio 32" tv led why some channels scrambled


if not the cable source then the MAIN pcb (not power pcb) controls all tuning. If you're using a cable box & some channels good/some channels scrambled, then is a cable issue.

My tv will scan and receive channels on a antenna but will not pick up channels on a cable scan with a good cable and a proven good cable signal


if you are not using a cable box and trying to connect cable directly to tv you will get very few channels since they are all digital now and most are scrambled

you will need to hook that cable to the input labled 'QAM' and program tv for digital channels

if you are coming out of a 'cable box' you just need to hook up video cables to an input on tv and change tv to that input - no scanning necessary

hope this helps - if not write back with more details and i will try to help more

good luck!

Do you have a digital converter box. If not, you need to get one to receive the analog channels.

Intermittent pixel scrambling on screen (have AT&T u-verse/ Sanyo DS32920 Flat panel 32" TV)


Usually the result of a weak or interruption of the signal. If it occurs on all channels, look into getting an inline amplifier. If you have several splitters going to different tv's or a multiple splitter, the signal is degraded each time the signal is split. You can test this be temporarily making a direct link to the TV from the cable source. If it clears up, then you know you need to amplify the signal.

I have Dish sattelite and it won't work with memorex under cabinet. They said I need a cable box in between the dish receiver and the tv. Why is this?


You need a receiver for each TV you want to receive the reception on. Your dish receives the broadcast signal from the network and your receiver decodes and recodes the signal to view on your TV. The companies have created their own proprietary equipment to accomplish this to keep anyone and everyone from simply installing their own dish and receiving all of their broadcast channels for FREE. In the olden days when satellite and cable TV was new, that is exactly what people did. Remember those gigantic dishes some people installed in their yards? They would intercept the signals coming from the satellites and hook up directly to their TVs. The companies got smart and started to scramble the signals going up to the satellites to make these home owner dishes obsolete. Because the signals are scrambled, you now need a receiver to un-scramble the signal. I hope this helps and good luck. Please remember to vote d368a18.jpg if you found this helpful. Thanks.

No channels recieved


If you have cable already, you do not need to use a converter for your picture. You would still just hook your coax cable to the tv right from the cable inlet. The converter is for over the air signals only, so you would place it between your bunny ears and the tv to convert your signal for your tv.

Is it the DCT or the cable signal?


if you are getting signal of the proper strength and quality the cabling is good.the problem is the box trying to decode the signals.a lot of signals are encripted and have to be decoded by the box.if the box is not responding fast enough you will see bloches on the tv.if you see scrambled channel you are not payinfor that channel.and if you are paying for a channel and it comes up scrambled your box is not working correct.get your company to upgrade the box.
