Question about CTL Nexus NX3200 Television

1 Answer

No video When I plug the coaxial cable into the television (no cable box, just straight from the wall), I am able to get all the cable channels, but they are not clear. Its as if I'm watching through an old rabbit ears antenna on a black and white TV.

That is because you are feeding a digital TV with one of the lowest forms of analog cable.  The best thing would be to get a digital box from your cable provider, and hook up to the TV using a digital cable, which at the very least would be a component cable.  This should fix the issue for you.

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.
This video shows troubleshooting steps to use when a "No signal" message appears.

How do I find the right channel to set my tv on so it will receive cable tv


If it is a cable box and you are connecting via coaxial cable using the rf converter in the box it is usually channel 3-4 but it can often be switched. If it is a satellite box it may use a high channel number like 73. Keep in mind that there is a traditional tuner and a digital tuner in your tv set so you made need to connect the cable and then do a channel setup for it to sense the active channel.

The image quality is best when the cable box is connected in this order from poorest to best; coaxial cable, rca cables (red,white,yellow), s-video (on older televisions), component video and optical audio using the three yellow, blue, green cables for video and a white or red for audio or optical input, DVI, or the best, HDMI with support for 1080p and audio. On your TV you should use an HDMI cable and simply change the Input or source button to that. The HDMI cable integrates video and sound and it will transmit a dolby surround signal to your TV just as a separate optical connection will.

Will not go to channel 3 so I can use my digital box


Your digital box should have non coaxial cables coming out of it going to the TV. This requires you to change the input source on the Television to something else other than "Air". It would most likely be something like Input 1, or Video 1, or HDMI 1, or Component 1. If you are indeed using the Coaxial output from the digital box to the coaxial input into your Television then you will need to do a channel scan on the TV to search which channels can be tuned to.

I have a Samsung hdtv but its not playing in hd.I have it hooked up to cable straight from the wall bypassing the cablebox.Is it the tv or cable?


You do not indicate if you have auto programmed the television to get digital channels, If you are selecting a channel without a decimal point, for instance 82.3 is NBC hd in my cable system. If your cable provider does not produce these on direct cable then you can not get HD without a box.
Try to Auto Program your tv in the cable mode STD format, this can take up to 20 minutes to complete scan including deleting scrambled channels. After programming try the lowest or highest analog channel like 2 or 70, channel down or up from there to see if any digital channels appear.

    How do you get the picture in picture to work? What two sources can you use, a cable box and what?


    The Picture in Picture (PIP) on VIZIO televisions works on multiple input sources. This means you have to have signal or a device connected to more than one input on the television and have both inputs selected to display the information going to them. Here is an example. Let's say you have an HD cable box connected to your television and you would like to have more than one channel displayed on the screen in order to keep an eye on both football games at the same time. With one device connected that's not going to work out the way our TV functions. What you want to do is get a coaxial splitter and two extra coaxial cables; these can be found anywhere home theater equipment is sold. Then follow these steps.

    1. Turn off both your cable box and television.

    2. Take the coaxial cable that comes OUT from the wall and connects to the IN of your cable box and disconnect it.

    3. Connect that cable to the IN on your coaxial splitter.

    4. Connect your two extra coaxial cables to the OUTs on your coaxial splitter. We will call them cable 1 and Cable 2, just because.

    5. Connect cable 1 directly to the DTV/TV input on your television.

    6. Connect Cable 2 directly to the IN on your cable box, this will be the same connection you removed it from in step #2. Your HD cable box should still be connected to your television with either an HDMI cable or Component cables (Identified by their Green, Red, Blue colors for video and Red and White cables for audio.)

    7. Power on both the cable box and your television. Using the INPUT button on your VIZIO remote select the input connection where your cable box is located your cable box picture should come up on the Main screen.

    8. Press the PIP button on your VIZIO remote to bring up the small box in the corner. Press the PIP input button until you select the TV input and you should be ready to go. You may need to perform a channel scan with your TV tuner to locate all available channels before you do this step. In order to understand better how to perform a channel scan please check under the F.A.Q.s in the discussion area of your particular model television.

    In order to change channels in the small screen use the PIP CH - and + buttons located near the bottom of the remote. You can swap picture in the Main and Sub screens using the swap button and swap which screen will sound off its audio by using the AUDIO button. You might notice an X next to some of the selections in the INPUT and PIP INPUT screens when you have PIP activated. That means that input selection is unavailable and cannot be used. For example, if you have the input TV selected on your main screen then if you press the PIP INPUT button and bring up that input menu you will see X's next to the TV and AV selections. The X's mean that when you have TV on the main screen you won't be able to use TV or AV on the small screen. Instead you would need to use any of the input selections that do not have an X attached to them.

    To convert a LCD Monitor into a TV
    Instructions
      • 1

        Compare internal and external TV tuners that are designed for use with computers. See if the tuner supports HD, DVI, component video, S-video, stereo, surround sound or other features you might like to use. Ensure that any internal devices will work with the expansion slots in your computer.

      • 2

        Purchase a regular TV tuner if your monitor has S-video, coaxial or RCA inputs. These can be seen at the back of the monitor. S-video should be clearly marked; coaxial is a large round port, and RCA inputs are typically smaller and brightly colored. If your monitor does not have these inputs, purchase a special TV tuner designed just for computer monitors. If you would like to use the tuner with your computer and monitor, choose an internal TV tuner. If you're using your computer monitor as a television on its own, select a stand-alone external tuner. Install the internal TV in your computer, if applicable.

      • 3

        Connect the TV tuner to the monitor with the proper cable. Select S-video as the connection option if both your tuner and monitor support it. Choose RCA component video as your next option. Use coaxial only if your monitor and tuner do not have the aforementioned connections. If your monitor has none of these connections, use a standard VGA cable to connect the tuner and monitor.

      • 4

        Connect the tuner's audio outputs to your monitor's speakers. If your monitor has no speakers directly attached, connect external speakers to the TV tuner. This can usually be achieved using regular audio or RCA cable.

      • 5

        Install an HD antenna high on a wall if you will be picking up free over-the-air television signals with your monitor. If you will be using satellite or cable TV with your monitor, simply plug the satellite or cable set top box into the tuner using RCA or coaxial cables. Then connect the tuner directly to the monitor.

      • 6

        Set your tuner to the channel you use to pick up television stations. If you receive free over-the-air television, this channel will be 3 or 4. If you have satellite or cable TV, this station is determined by your television service provider. Check the documentation that came with your system to determine which channel to set the tuner on. You will probably need to change channels using the satellite or cable box rather than the TV tuner.

    Everything working except I can't get digital channels. It comes up with no signal. But all digital SBS channels are working fine. How could that be.


    Is it saying no signal or one moment please? No signal is a dead give away; there isn't any. One moment please can be several things. Low signal or cable box isn't active. How do you have your connection from your cable box set up as? Coaxial cable, RCA, HDMI, or component? Also, make sure whatever connection you're using, connect from you cable box out into your TV's in (type of cable you're using) Make sure you're on the correct input. For example. RCA may be video 1 or 2 depending on where you plugged it in. Hdmi -> may be HDMI 1 or 2. Coaxial may be channel 3 or 4 on your tv set. Hope this helps.

    Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


    This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

    Connection for cable box to tv monitor


    On the back of the cable box there should be 2 coaxial screw on connectors. One should be labelled "In from Cable" and the other should be "Out to TV". Screw the cable comming from the wall into the "In from Cable" connector and get a short piece of cable to go from the "Out to TV" down the the coaxial connector on the TV. Turn on the cable box. Now tune the TV to either Channel 3 or 4 and you should have a picture.
