Broadcast Channels not picked up

Hi. I recently moved from California to Texas. Where I live, I don't have cable tv. I have broadcast channels. It only picks up one of the channels, but does not display it clearly. It works fine on the DVD players. I don't know how to get it to recognize the other channels. It is the 51pw90303/17f television. The remote works. Some of the buttons on the TV are broken a long time before the move, but the operation of the TV has not been effected by this.

Thank you!
Cindy

    If the remote is bringing up the menu then it is working fine. Now when you say it does bot come up properly is it distorted and is the tv picture distorted also?

The info states this TV has an HDTV tuner (ATSC), however I am unable to tune any digital channels which are broadcast via our cable provider (not offered on whole number channels, rather decimel points...


You need to reset you tv to factory mode, by pressing tv off---mute 182 power---go to options and look for *reset to factory* them wait until the process is done.

Sound goes out for certain programs or commercials on different channels, but not all of them


Check your tv's audio settings. If there is an "SAP" button on your remote try hitting that. It stands for secondary audio program. Most manufacturers put it near the corners of the remote leaving it prone to getting hit without knowing. Most shows are broadcast with a spanish version of the audio. Hitting that button should allow you to hear it, but some tv networks do not broadcast the SAP audio making it seem like there is no audio. It usually affects more than one channel, and commercials do not broadcast SAP either.

Toshiba Tv - Does it have a digital tuner?


That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps

I JUST GOT A D52W20 HD TV.I SCREWED THE CABLE CONNECTION TO THE ANTENA INPUT. THE ONLY STATIONS I GET ARE LOCAL CHANNELS BUT NO CABLE CHANNELS. WHAT DO I HAVE TO SET ON THE TV OR WHAT DO I HAVE TO PRESS ON...


Before you bought your new TV, was the cable connected to an older TV, and was it working?
When you say you screwed the cable connection to the antenna input, did the cable come directly from the wall, or did it go through a cable box first. If it came through the wall without a cable box, it's possible it's not an active cable account, and you're only getting over the air signals for your local channels (and nothing through the cable). Or, your cable signal might have been analog only, and with the transition this week to digital TV, maybe you're no longer getting the channels broadcast properly.
If you are a cable subscriber, then this problem should be reported to the cable company, and they can do further testing to see what's wrong with your signal.

My tv is on spanish how do i take it off


Spanish on the screen or Spanish through the speakers on some channels? If its the on-screen display that's in Spanish, you pick the language using the setup menu with the remote control. If you're getting Spanish through the speakers, you probably have turned on the SAP (second audio program) function. In some areas with a large enough population, SAP is often used to broadcast program audio in a different language. On channels with no SAP broadcast you don't hear any problems. The SAP function is usually controlled by a button on the remote and probably got pressed by accident.

DTV connection


Have you tried http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx? This will show you the location of the HD broadcast towers for your local stations and my recommendation would be to use an outdoor antenna if you can. Picking up the reception is definitely about pointing the antenna in the direction of the towers.

SOUND NOT WORKING ON ALL CHANNELS


Check to make sure that the set is not set for SAP. This is an alternate audio channel that usually contains another language. Some stations broadcast the audio in both others do not.
