SOURCE: 42HDS69 cable input is only thing working

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If youdon't have the original remote and can't find it ever then the only way to reachyour tv is through coaxial antenna port. Soyou can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your red yellowand white cables (rca cables from a dvd, game consoleetc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with acoax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4and other channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

SOURCE: Hitachi ultravision model number 42hds69 cable problem.

Usually you need a decoder to receive "Cable" With your "Cable" usually you connect the Cable antenna, to the Cable "Box" form the "Box" to the Audio Visual EXTERNAL inputs, in the back of the TV. Now IF your TV can receive the "Cable" directly, then you would have to connect the Antenna, into the rear of the TV, now you would go to the "Tuning" section, and, the TV, would automatically "Search" for any available channels. They would then, be displayed at the end of the scan. Please find a user manual below, this will help you tune in, IF you can. If you cannot, you will have to get a cab;e "Box" and a remote. Hookup to the TV, from the "Box" to the TV, via, Audio and Video cables. You use the "Box's" remote to change channels and volume. You first must set the TV's Volume, & picture setting, the TV, is basically just used as a "Monitor" for the "Box". Hope this helps..

SOURCE: My cable input has disappeared.

I also have this problem. Also, if I switch the input to PC or HDMI, it will no longer allow me to go back to AV.
AV itself doesn't quite work. When I turn on a peripheral, the TV seems to register the machine, but doesn't properly display it. For instance, if I turn on a game system, the screen switches from "No Signal" to grey. Another interesting thing is that when powered on, the intro screen that is usually blue displays as grey.
I'm chalking it up to a software issue, so my solution would be to find a way to reset it to factory settings, but I can't find any way to do so in the manual or online.

I have a toshiba 42HL196 tv and i am trying to connect it to an external antenna. I cant find a channel scan option in the setup menu. The menu on my tv is not the same as the toshiba video.


First check the current source. Press the Input button on the TV (second from the left) or on the remote (below 9) until the correct Antenna input (Ant 1) is selected. Make sure that the antenna is connected to Ant 1 (the RF connection closest to the back HDMI ports). You only use Ant 2 if you have a coaxial (RF) cable connection. Then press Menu and then try the Setup menu again. You should be able to access the Installation menu and Terrestrial sub-menu now. Change the Input Configuration for Ant 1 to Antenna before attempting to Program Channels.

If this doesn't work, try resetting the TV to the factory settings. You'll have to access the Menu, go to the Installation sub-menu and then select the System Status and then System Information. Select Factory Defaults and enter the PIN. See the manual for the default PIN if you haven't changed it. Then confirm the reset. The manual is available from the product support page: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=2841536 . The direct link to the manual is http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/manuals/userguides/su2846615/42hl196_om_e.pdf . See page 29 for the PIN. Then try accessing the Terrestrial menu and scanning for channels.

I hope this helps.

How can I set a tv to antenna mode in order to receive digital channels?


It depends on the TV. First make sure that the active Input is TV. On some TVs, you may need the original remote or an universal remote that has an Input or Source button (and a code that enables that function for your TV). Some TVs have the Input or Source button on the TV as well or a Menu option to change inputs.

Next enter the On-screen Menu and find a Channel or TV setting option. In that sub-menu, you will find a Source option. (It may give the choices of Air or Cable.) After you set that to the Air, you'll need to scan for channels.

Please add a comment with the model of your TV for additional assistance. I hope this generic comment helps.

I hook my antenna to the back and I'm not receiving a picture


Hi,

I'm assuming your Antenna is connected to your TV with a co-axial cable? If so, please make sure you have run the Analogue/Antenna/Air channel scan correctly:

1. Switch the TV on
2. Press the "MENU" button on the Curtis remote supplied with the TV.
3. Press the RIGHT arrow button five times to highlight the "Channel" menu
4. Press the "ENTER" button or the DOWN arrow once to open the "Channel" menu

The Air/Cable option should be highlighted.

5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow buttons to set the "Air/Cable" option to "Air"
6. Press the DOWN arrow to highlight "Auto Scan"
7. Press the "ENTER" button or the RIGHT arrow once to start the automatic channel scan.

When the scan has finished, the TV should automatically return to viewing mode. If not, just press the "EXIT" or "MENU" button on the remote to close the menu.

You also need to make sure the correct INPUT/SOURCE is selected on the TV:

1. Press the "SOURCE" button on the Curtis remote
2. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight "TV" in the INPUT SOURCE menu
3. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote to select "TV" and close the INPUT SOURCE menu.

This should be all you need to do to watch your TV from an antenna source.

Please post back if you are still unable to get it to work and need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

When I try to set our TV to locate digital channels, the menu skips the channel selection when I scroll through options of picture, audio, channel, lock, setup. All the options are available.


It sounds like your TV is on a different input. If you watch your cable from an external cable box, and this box is plugged into your TV using wires that are yellow, red, and white, or red, blue, green, red and white, you're currently watching TV on a different input than the one used for the antenna. Channels in a TV are controlled by the tuner. The tuner is the silver, threaded, post on the back of a TV, DVR, converter box, or VCR, that you plug an antenna or cable wire to. The tuner contols channels while the other inputs on your TV carry a direct signal like a computer to a monitor. So when you use something other than coaxial cable to connect cable to your TV, you can't access the channel menu while on that input. To access that menu, change the TV's input or source to TV or stop when you see a channel number on the screen. You have to be on the TV or tuner input in order to access the channel menu. If you're on any other input such as, S-Video, AV1, AV2, component (Yp Br Cr), HDMI, etc. you will not be able to do a channel scan. You have to be on the right input or source.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

Tv works jsut no pic black and white screen says weak or no signel?


If it says "weak or no signal", this means your are not showing the correct input or have no channels programmed.

To find the the correct video input:
1. turn On the device you are trying to see
2. press the [input] button on the side of the TV until you get a picture (wait 3 seconds between pressing the button)

You program the TV by accessing it in the User Menu.

Also, You may access the inputs using the TV remote. Each input button (V4 and V5) may need to be pressed muliptle time to access the picture . When you press this on the remote you will notice the input change from Composite 1, Component 1, S-Video. V5 will show composite 2 and component 2. Using the side panel allows youto scan all inputs in case you are not sure.

Sounds like you might be in "Air" mode and you want to change to "cable" mode. You are going to need to access the menu settings on the tv and change the cable input.

Switch to antenna mode without a remote


Can you access the menu on the front of the tv? Is so go into the menu setup and switch from cable to air then run the autoprogram to search your channels. If you cannot access the menu on the front of the tv then a remote will be required . Also if if your tv has audio/video jacks in the back of the set and you are not using them hook it up with those inputs for a better picture . Your have to push the input button to select that a/v input you used . Good luck
