Salutations mandi84,

It sounds like you may need to adjust what type of cable signal your TV accepts. Depending on how old the unit is there maybe a small switch near the cable input, or a option in your setup.

If its a switch your should have three options including STD, which is the standard setting which has adopted by cable providers.

In your menu you would be looking for an option for signal, or even a choice between Air, or Cable.

I hope this helps.

Just purchased an RCA 32" LED TV from K-Mart. Trying to set-up and in auto-scan it will not pick up any channels


It really depends on how your connecting signal. I am not sure about where you are but virtually all cable companies in Canada require the use of the cable box. Searching channels will only check either the analog cable input or rabbit ears. Typically you hook up the cable box via HDMI and set the televsion to that HDMI input and channels are changed on the cable box.

this could be a fault with the tv actual connector for the cable check the connection on the tv and try again or try a manual search to pick up one channel and then do a full scan also are you doing a scan to add channels to the current list as I would personally try and do a complete scan for all new channels list and see what happens

I have my rca model f36665 hooked up strait from the wall to the tv and I can't get it to find the channels. do I have to have a cable box?


First if cable I presume you have entered the menu and selected cable.

Another possible reason is the tuner/s in this set are bad---hook a DVD or something to one of the rear inputs and see if set works.

If set works that way and tuner turns out to be bad you can with a box with av cable out connections on back just go into a rear input and bypass the tuner--leave set on that input and change channels with the box.

Let me know if you have questions and what you find---usually on this set if no signal---"unusable signal" will appear on screen if no signal.

I have just hooked up set top box to Sharp TV CX5182 and need to re-tune it? Can you send me instructions please as I can't find my operators manual. Many thanks.


By set top box do you mean a digital tuner box? If so and your tv is a newer flat panal than more than likely you wont need it anymore. That tuner will be built in. If this is the case than hook your anntena up to the new tv and go to the menu to do an auto channel search. That should do the trick. If it is an older tv and doesnt have the tuner then hook up the box the way you hooked it up before IE if you used cable than hook it up with cable if you used it with Composite cables(RCA) than use those the reason is some of those boxes you have to set that part up in the settings and that disabled the other output so if you had it set for cable than hooked it up with Composite(rca) nada, nothing would show. Once you hook it up and you see it on the screen then your good to go simple channel search from there. Also if you use cable then your tv needs to be on channel 3 or 4 if you use Composite(rca yellow red and white) then your tv has to be on the input channel that coencides with what input is hooked to.

do you have a remote for the tv . if not you can get a cheap one from walmart (GE or RCA) they are cheap and easy to program to your tv use it to enter menu

go to (screen or picture) using the up or down arrow change it from cable to tv

if that don't work try the input button on remote that is most likely to work to get you the channel you need to use the wii
