You probably have to find your original remote to the set and go through setup in your menu. On most sets, there will be a menu item which will allow you to switch from Cable mode to Air mode. If you have no Cable connected, then you must set tuner in Air mode.
If you are using an external device to run on channel three, then try this:
Make sure device (rather it's a vcr or game console), is hooked up to your Antenna Input connector. Also, some of these devices will have a small hidden switch on back that says 3 and 4. Move the switch to 3 position. Turn on device. Go into TV menu and do a Channel scan. This should auto program any device hooked up to the TV antenna input jack to channel three.
Keep in mind that you may not receive anything by Feburary of this year without an HD converter box to tune in channels with and outdoor antenna.
You have the set in standard air mode rather than cable mode. I am not familiar with your particular model, but you should be able to switch it to cable (assuming that it is cable ready). Check for a switch on the back or front. If there is no switch, there should be a menu option for changing the set to receive either over-air or cable. Check under the setup menus.
Most tv's have an Antenna mode and a cable mode. If you have cable tv service, the cable mode must be selected in order to receive channels higher than 23. Then you must auto program the channels thru the menu screen on the tv to receive the channels above 23. If you have a house antenna or rabbit ears, its hit or miss on receiving all VHF and UHV channels.
make sure your got the right cable mode selected through the remote or autual switch on back of tv. if not it youll only see cable channels up to channel 13 that means in is standard tv mode or air. once you selected cable ...run autoprogram and it find all the channels for you. these newer sets, dont bother with looking for a cable switch, its all done automaticly when you hit that autoprogram button
but it would be in the menu under setup.
You did not mention which set you have, so look for a small switch (usually on the back of the set) or go into the menu and set the TV to the "broadcast" or "tv" mode. If the set is in the "cable" mode, you will not get any UHF channels above 13.
Your TV is set for standard broadcast.
You need to go to the set up menu and change from antenna/normal to cable mode.
In standard broadcast mode you receive off the air programs 2-13 vhf and 14-83 uhf.
In the cable you receive 2-13 and cable channels 14 -125 if the set is not too old.
When cable channels first came out some sets would just cover 14- 36 or 14- 47 or 14-66 etc.
The newer sets cover the now standard cable channels 14-125. Hope this helps you
