    No sound. Just snow.

  • J-Lady Jun 25, 2008

    Still nothing but snow and now I can see a faint Sanyo insignia.

  • J-Lady Jun 25, 2008

    Tried other set of coaxial wires- same result.

  • J-Lady Jun 26, 2008

    Not coaxial, I guess. Made sure it was hooked up color coded and same result-- same snowy faint Sanyo image. No sound or picture. TV working fine.

  • J-Lady Jul 07, 2008

    Tried another TV with same result.

  • J-Lady Jul 09, 2008

    can't be cable problem because my other small TV has built in Dvd/Vhs and it works fine.

Do you have it plugged in with the coaxial cable or do you have it plugged in with the yellow,red,and white cables? If you arent using the coaxial cable and are using the red,yellow, and white cables make sure they match the color of the ports on the TV and DVD player. So you will want red to go to red, white to go to white, and yellow to go to yellow at both the DVD player and the TV. Also make sure you have the cables connected at the terminals labeled OUT. Same if you are using the coaxial cable. Good luck and keep me posted. Let me know if you have anymore questions. If you found this helpful please rate this solution when you get a chance. Thanks - Tech101

    Make sure you select the TV input instead of channel 3 or 4 because since it is not coaxial cable it will not work on channel 3 or 4. Try pressing the TV/Video or TV/Input button on the TV. Let me know if this works. Thanks - Tech101

  • plug in a different tv to see if there is a different result
  • plug cable directly into tv to make sure it works (skip dvd)
  • If nothing works after that call the local cable service provider.

The video cable (coaxial) should go into the dvd player and another one out from the dvd player to the tv. Remote set to dvd player. Instead of channels 3 and 4 look for video 1, video 2, aux or something similar.

I'm trying to hook up a 19" Sansui tv. I'm not on cable, but tried hooking it up to an antenna without any luck. What do I need to do to get the TV to work???


Make sure the TV can receive digital over the air signals (it should have an ATSC tuner), that is it doesn't need a digital converter box. In the menu settings make sure the TV is set to antenna, not cable. You should be able to use the auto-scan (auto-program, etc.) from the menu to find and program the local channels.

How do I program my RCA LED48G45RQ HDMI to digital channels


Several things to check. First go in the menu where u are doing the channel scan and see if there is a separate line that says digital and if so select it so it can add those channels. Next look also on the remote and see if there is a button that says ANT or Input and press it to see if selects the digital side. Next see how u are hooking up the set from either cable, SAT, Antenna, etc, and are u going thru the antenna connection/the screw on cable input. Cause if going thru hdmi or any other input will not allow u to scan channels. Next the tv may not have a digital tuner in which some new sets don't, look in owners manual and read on channel programming and it should tell u. Maybe something here will help.

CANT GET CABLE CONNECTED RIGHT


Hook a VCR to it with a tape playing and make sure the VCR RF switch is set to channel 3. Then do the auto search. If it still does not find channel 3, then your TV has a bad tuning circuit.

Tv only gets lower channels


Go to settings manual, go to tuner mode, select CATV, than do an auto-programming or auto channel scan and you will be set.
Make sure it is not set to AIR

Can't get it to go above channel 23... (nothing wrong with cable hook up)


all done so far looks good. But the part where you went into the menu is about i'd like to talk:

before you send to auto-program feature. try to find changing the band where the tv is working now.
Let me explain.
The tv is looking channels in the antenna or air band. Make sure you change the selector to CABLE.
this selection usually it is previous to send to auto-program.
if all this was done and nothing change, we need to send the tv into the workshop to check the tuner and voltages related to it.

Sharp VCR hooked up to cable tv, i/p to vcr then out to tv.


I believe that I have the solution to that problem... When you are hooked up to cable or dish and use a VCR, you MUST have the program you wish to tape playing on the Cable or dish program, therefore the VCR needs to be tuned to channel 3 or 4 {whichever is the unused channel in your area) I believe that all you have to do is make sure that the TV is tuned to the channel you wish to tape and program the VCR to Channel 3 (at my area) or channel 4.

I hope this works for you. I have VCRs hooked up to all my sets and this is how mine work.

Program satelite or cable


you are not specific as to programming cable or satellite .if you have cable tv with a cable box there is no need to program tv channels.the tv should be left on channel 3.check the back of the cable box & tv it may also be connected thru rca/s-video or componant cables meaning the tv should be on a line in/source ,or video input. for a tv without a cable box
you can do the auto or manual programming. no need to be on channel 3. if you have satelllite tv you need the box to hook up to your tv.you cannot bypass this box unlike cable tv.also check the back of the box for the other possible connections
good luck

Hello,
I just wanted to suggest some things for you to try, if you have not done them already. Try hooking up a known good signal, such as the main input cable from your cable or dish, hook it straight to your tv, and see if you can change channels, and get a picture on low band...2 thru 6, and then if not, how about any picture above channel 6, if you get picture on 2 thru 13 now, it could be whatever you have hooked in between the input cable and the tv...be sure you have the tv on the right channel for your receiver, usually 3 or 4, or if you are using another type of video input cable, make sure you have tv on the right input for that cable and that cable is good...check the in and out of your component unit, for correct cable hookup as well as your cables, in reference to using RCA video and audio left and right in and out...a lot of sets and vcr's will go to a blue screen if they lose signal to them....I hope this helps you out some.If you cannot get a picture from hooking your signal straight to your tv, it could be the tuner got a spike from a thunderstorm, or has lost the B Plus source for the tuner circuit. Be sure that it is not selected for an input signal,other than the cable or antenna mode, the onscreen text should verify this, if you can change channels with or without getting video...a picture....Good luck with it.
