TV Green Kevin. WE run our TV exclusively from a Satellite Box, does this mean we don't use the TV's internal tuners, but only the Satellite box tuners???? Ron

Sorry Kevin000, your answer in not entirely correct.

Many satelite boxes allow you to connect to the TV using AV cables (red/white/yel) or S-video or RF. If connected via RF, then the TV is usually set to channel 3 or 4. The RF route uses the tuner. The other methods bypass the tuner.

Satellite box send out siginal in the same frequency, so the tv tuner doesnt have to work on it, but all siginal coming to the Tv goes through the turner.

The antenna port is broke off on my lg flat screen tv how do i fix it


It's possible to resolder the port back on but the tv will have to be pulled down to gain access to the tuner and tuner cover will need to be removed to resolder the signal wire where it's broken off the tuner board. In some cases the tuner needs to be desoldered and removed to get access to the tuner board. If your soldering skills are not great an alternative solution would be to use an external set top box. This can be a pest because you then need a second remote to change channels.

Samsung plasma TV model #pn42b400p3dxza problem with no image. The TV has sound but no image. I've tried using other components on the TV like RCA jacks with a separate TV digital tuner. Thank you


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.

Check whether Va & Vs voltage come to the display panel, from the main power supply regulator board. If not, the SMPS board [power supply regulator board] is faulty.

How do i watch my tv with a broken remote


You can buy a universal remote and program it to work with your TV. I have always had good luck with RCA universal remotes. You can also program the remote to run your cable/sat box and your DVD/blue ray player. You could also go to the web site of the company that made the TV and order a new remote. This would be more expensive but the remote would run all the funcitions while the universal may not.

How could I connect a Daewoo 42sm TV?, I can't afford cable so I use a converter box(analog to digital w/rabbit antenna)on my other TV and I was given this Daewoo TV and would like to watch it;please


If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types

I have a 39 inch element tv i cant program the cable channels


Typically you can access the menu, select "tuner" or something similar, make sure you're selected either on CATV or ANT (or similar), then do a channel scan. Should be pretty straightforward. Oh, and make sure you actually HAVE cable. If it's digital cable, you may need an external converter box for it to work.
