Cable Ready Is this television/dvd player cable capable? I can only get up to channnel 13 with the remote or manual changing of the channels. I use cable as. Are there any kind of conversion boxes available if it is not. I believe I have a 19 inch though if you measure diagonally.

    Working well up to 2 days ago. It no longer recognizes channels that used to come in. We have re-set, automatically searched for new channels,checked connections,un plugged and tried to add additional channels. It does not recognize one local channel and skips from 13-22 and from 22-61. The screen says no signal.

    I'd like to know if this TV is HD also. I've had 2 HD cable boxes attached to this TV (it has the right outlets for HD) but neither of the boxes work. I have a hard time believing that both boxes are defective. I've worked with TimeWarner on the first box for a couple of hours but their CS people are pretty basic in what they can assist with. I'm taking the 2nd box back tomorrow and need to know if I'm getting the right box.

II HAVE A 13 INCH BRAND MODEL DWT 1304. I JUST WANT TO USE IT FOR A DVD PLAYER. I HAVE NO REMOTE ,HOW DO I CHANGE THE TV TO PLAY DVD OR VEDIO


Connect the composite video RCA (yellow) cable output of the DVD player to the TV's video input RCA (yellow jack). Connect the red and white RCA cable from the DVD players audio output to the TV's audio input (red and white jacks). Select the source input from the TV's control panel - if it has an input selector switch, set it to select the video source from the front panel input jacks if you connected the three cables - yellow, red and white on the front of the set. Or, change the channel to receive the video auxiliary input source instead of the broadcast station.

I have an older Broksonic TV that has a built in DVD player.


Under the menu settings, make sure tv is set to CATV and not Air. CATV is for cable.
Then look for tuner options or channel edit options.
Find the "autoprogram" option and select it. It will scan and remember all available channels

I got a free tv from a hotel, it has no remote. Can I use a universal remote to add channels to the tv? It only goes to channel 69. Also, can I plug in a dvd player? I can't find anywhere on the tv to plug...


Often these commercial TV's are just vanilla types catering for TV alone. The43 cable channel is possibly the only other alternative that is a money maker for the motel/hotel. They try and prevent people from connecting their own DVD players to their equipment so they are the ones who make the $$.
It is possible to use a Universal remote providing it is capable of being controlled by a remote.
Philips code is 0054 , you can only try!

It is not picking up the channels , i have cable and no channnels are working at all,not even the local channels.when am changing the channel it starts at DTV then TV,then CADTV,and then CATV


Sounds like you may have a stuck button on the tv causing uncontrolled selection or the Main bd is bad. Try hooking up a different source such as a DVD player to the same input on the tv. If the tv works ok you might have a bad cable Box as well.

My remote wont change channels


I need to use the cable remote to change the channel and the TV remote to change volume.
That is because your TV is looking at the output of the cable box (probably on channel 3 or 4) so the TV has to be statically tuned to see the cable box's output.
On the second question; I, and perhaps others, can't answer this without spending a lot of time to download manuals for both systems while you have them (presumably, since they are new) on hand. You didn't include the TV's model number anyhow so even that wouldn't be adequate.
The home theatre may have a receiver but what does it receive? Unless it also has channel capabilities that correspond to cable channels, it can't. The typical routing should be from the cable box to the TV S-video input and the sound can be routed separately from the cable box to either/or both, the home theatre's and also the TV's audio inputs.
When I am installing new stuff, I make a sketch of the routing I want (or have) to use. To me, this is less confusing than the supplied instructions.

Older ge tv but cable ready-no remote.... need to find channel to play dvd player on.Recently connected dvd player but can't play a dvd.The tv is connected to a cable box.


Hey wegodsky,

If you're not able to find the right channel on your TV to use your DVD player, you may want to try changing the TV's input source instead. Many TV models will require that the TV be set to an external antenna in order for any other device (like a VCR or DVD player) to function correctly. This can usually be done by pressing the menu button on the TV itself and selecting an option similar to "Input," "Source" or "Antenna" if you do not have a remote control for your TV.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Is there an input select?


I can view channels but cannot view a DVD from the TV/DVD Disney Princess Combo. Only see static on the screen with no sound. I wonder if I need to change the input select to view a movie but cannot find a button on the TV or remote control. I have a 6 button remote which I am sure operates the DVD and another remote with 39 buttons I thought would operate the player as well as the TV. However, so far only the player functions from it. The buttons only have small pictures without words which sometimes leaves some question about purpose. This is a second hand unit. I do not have a manual. It did play movies at first. I think the trouble may have started when I programed cable channels. Any help will be greatly appreciated
