I assume you tried the cable on a working TV to make sure there is a signal on the cable line and that the cable terminal is OK. See if you can control the input selector and set it up for RF or TV reception. If OK, try to tune in channels manually or in auto mode. Do this in programming mode. If you notice any noise on the screen, this means the source selector circuit is OK. If there is no noise, the source selector may not be latched to the RF circuit output. Try to feel the terminal at the back of the TV set. If it feels like it moves when pressure is applied in various directions, chances are the solder connection for the terminal onto the circuit board may be faulty. Resoldering them would be easy for DIY enthusiasts. If it isn't the culprit, try the DVD. If it works fine, then the video circuits must be ok. The trouble could be from the video source selector circuit backwards to the RF block. Usually an IC senses the power condition of the DVD player. If it senses that the player is ON, the IC latches on the signal coming from the DVD player. See if there i a separate power button for the DVD. More later, please post a feedback

Wont find channels on auto channel search


Ensure that you have a good connection to your antenna/cable/satellite, and that you have selected the proper signal type in your TV menu.

If you are using a cable box or satellite, you might need to search for an analog signal on channel 3 or 4. If your cable/satellite box outputs an HDTV signal, then search the digital channels. If you are using an antenna, search for digital channels and set it the TV to Air in the Channel menu.

How to tune channels first time when you purchase a new Sony Kdl 32EX600 LED tv?


Hello
Do connection to the antena if you wants to set the TV auto tuned.
During this initial setup, you can perform the following:

1 Select the language for the on-screen display text.
2 Select HOME or Retail mode. [Here you have to select "Home" mode if the set displays "Retail"

3 Connect cable or antenna, then select OK to run Auto
Program

• If you have cable and antenna available, please connect cable first.

• IMPORTANT: Auto Program is only effective when cable or

antenna is connected. If you cancel Auto Program before completion some channels may not be
available.

4 Auto Program will scan for available channels from the signal source directly connected to

the TV's CABLE/ANTENNA input and may take sometime to complete the process. Follow
the help text provided on the screen to run Auto Program.
OK.

After i do the factory reset, auto search channel fail to active.


Hello,

Try to unplug the cable that leads to the antenna, turn off your television, unplug it and allow it to rest for about 30 minutes, then turn it on and plug back the antenna to it, then you try to auto search channels.

Ensure your cable is receiving signals from the antenna. Try to use the cable on another television.

Take care

No channels after auto-program runs


Something isn't right. Try a wire as an antenna to the Panasonic, set it for air/antenna and see if it finds anything. You should be able to pick up at least a couple of stations even with a wire....

  3. Set Tuner Mode to "cable".
  4. Run another channel scan.

Can't get the channels to enter into the channel list


A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]

Quasar VV-2001 TV/VCR combo - msg: Check Antenna Cable Connection


Check first the antenna using another TV. If there is no other TV available, check using an ohmeter. If you are 100% sure tha the antenna is ok then the antenna connector on your Tv is not making a good connection to the antenna plug.

Can't get any tv reception


My friend, you need to hook up a signal source such as an antenna or cable . The channels wont come in and it will all depend on where you live and how close to a major city on what and how good you will get the stattions. then once an antennena is connected, do the auto programming again. Good Luck
