If I remember correctly, this is an older model set (late 1980, early 1990 I think). Many cable systems of that era didn't offer the large number of channels they do now, and the cable tuning of many sets was very limited. Most cable companies required you to use a converter box to get all the channels. So you probably aren't missing anything, the set just can't do more.

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

Trouble with Channel setup


It is important for the TV to know what type of
signal-Cable TV (CATV) or a normal antenna
you are using. Choose your signal (Antenna or
Cable):
Press MENU to see the main menu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight Setup.
Press OK
to enter the Setup submenu.
TV/CATV is highlighted. Press VOL+ or
VOL-
to select TV or CATV.
Choose CATV if you have Cable TV
service. (See page 4 for connection
details.) If you do not have Cable TV
service and you connected an antenna
to the TV, choose TV. (See page 5 for
connection details.)
Press MENU repeatedly to exit the
menu or the menu will automatically
disappear within a few seconds if no
buttons are pressed on the remote
control.

And here is the manual if you need .

Can't change TV to CATV mode


You must unplug the cable connecting the television and the cable box. Then turn the television off and then back on. Do not turn the cable box off or disconnect the cable in wire from the cable box especially if you use Cable Vision. It will take up to 20 minutes before the box comes back on. Now turn the television back on. When you access the Channel System menu, you have the access to the submenu choices. Change the Antenna option to CATV and the Current Channel to 3. Reconnect the cable box to the TV.

Also those that are having problems with the TV turning off periodically, make sure the sleep mode option does not have a number in it. For example, if the number is 10, it will turn off every 10 minutes.

Channel Scan on my Philips 26" TV only finds the local channels.


Hi.

you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.

I am trying to get channels above 13. I do not


Try bringing up the menu by holding both volume buttons down at the same time (or use menu button on remote if you have it). Go into CH SET using the channel and volume buttons on the front of set (or use the SET + and - and the ENTER buttons on remote). Go to the TV CATV line and move the arrow to CATV. Let menu time out. This will put tv into cable mode. Hope this helps.

No recption pass channel 12


judging by the year, this set should definitely be cable ready. check the front of the tv if it has a control panel for a switch that says catv/normal or something similar, if it does not have that switch, check the settings via the remote.

the channel a connector may require an adapter depending on the type of connector. i had an old tv that required an adapter in order to plug the cable coax into it, it resembled an rca connector and is used on some older tv's in place of a screw on connector.

if all else fails, your cable company should be able to provide you with a tuner/converter for free or minimal charge.

i hope this helps,

Make sure the TV setting is set to or . A power surge may have reset your ?cable-ready? TV. Check the cable setting on your TV and make sure it is set to or . If a VCR is connected: * The VCR needs to be on channel 4. * VCR may not be ?fine-tuned? to channel 4. Locate and adjust the fine-tuning mechanism until the picture comes in clearly. * The <3/4> switch may be in the wrong position. Locate the switch on the back of the VCR and set it to <4>. If a converter is connected: * Make sure the TV is on channel 4. * TV may not be ?fine-tuned? to channel Locate and adjust the fine-tuning mechanism until the picture comes in clearly. * Determine if the converter is bad.
