Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

Sharp tv won't display cable picture (it only shows fuzz) but the netflix and DVD both work. The cable says no input service available. I am able to change the channel on the cable box, but on the tv


Your cable box might not be sending signal out to the tv. Would have to call service provider to have them test your box. Or, you can try unplugging your cable box, and then plugging it back in. Make sure all connections are secure and settings on your tv are accurate. 11_13_2013_3_31_52_pm.png

No signal onthe screen


If you are connected to a high definition cable box or satellite tv box you would not need to turn to channel 3 on your television. The television would need to be in the right input either component or hdmi. If someone connected the tv to the cable box or satellite tv box with a coax cable like an antenna cable then the tv channels will be available on channel 3 as well but they will not display in high definition. You change channels with the cable box/satellite tv box remote control. If the above is not correct and you are only connected to an antenna cable and not to a cable box or satellite tv box you will need to complete a channel search from the tv menu. It sounds like you are using a cable box/satellite tv box and that the tv is on the wrong input. If the cable box/satellite tv box is not working (i.e. just a black screen) on your television than that is a different matter entirely.

Black box in middle of screen on 2 channels 42LG70 plasma model T


It sounds like your tv is in text mode for the captions. Try going into the menu, and go into captions, and set it to off. That should solve the problem. If not, do U have a cable box? If U do, try the same approach with the cable box B4 concluding it's something wrong with the tv.

Samsung LN-TFT-LCD Television


The first time this happened to me, I unplugged the power cable from the back of the TV and then held the power button on the front in for 5 minutes. Its tedious but, it clears the memory out of the TV and should work.
The second time it happened my first method didn't fix the problem.  So try this:
1. Press "MENU" on the remote. If you're problem is the same as mine, then the menu is jumping around very eratically so you'll have to time your button presses accurately.
2. In the  "Picture" Category turn ON: DIGITAL NR, DNie Demo, Film Mode, and Blue Screen.
3. Exit the Menu, and Unplug the Television.
I let my Tv sit for about 2 weeks before I turned it on again, but when I did the "Not Available In Current Mode" message was gone, but replaced with smaller blue message boxes that say DigNR, DNie, and Film.  I then went back into the MENU and turn OFF: DIGITAL NR, DNie Demo, and Film Mode and the problem was gone!

Normal Picture Mode Not Available With Cox HD-DVR (Motorola DCH3416) and HDMI Cable


With an HDMI cable connected, the cable box determines the picture size. The settings on the cable box must be changed in order for you to get the correct picture size. I have some experience with Motorola cable boxes; usually to access the settings you turn the box OFF and then press the menu or settings button on the box to bring up the display menu. Hope this helps!

Tv want show


Look at the back of your TV.  Make sure your cable is hooked up to connector on far right, NOT the far left. (For analog cable TV.)

Push "source" button on remote or side of TV to cycle through TV inputs.  Wait one second between pushes.  You want to stop just before the source that displays "AV" on TV screen.  It should show a number, for the current channel number.

If you are using an analog cable box, try setting the TV channel to 3 or 4.  If you use no cable box, try changing channels on TV to find an active one.  If no luck, make sure your cable service is active (subscription active).  Cable companies disconnect it between residents of an apartment/house.

Sony Bravia KDL-46S2010


Try plugging the coax directly into the T.V. or from you VCR or DVD player then to the TV. The bravia sets also have various picture mode settings as you will discover when you go through your manual. Cable boxes or splitters can cause problems also is they are not of good quality. I love my 40.
