TV tuners will not go to any channel higher then 125. If you want to get the channel 500, you will need to have a cable box that are design to get all the higher channels.
Good Luck.

Plugged in, cable connected, turned on, says "No Signal"


OTA signal? Check your antenna orientation and if there are any tall objects that would interfere with the signal. (See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for signal directions and distance to the station. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative with station information.) Scan for channels with Menu > > (right arrow twice) up or down to AutoScan and hit enter. Use add channels to include stations with the antenna in a new direction.

If you are using the built-in antenna, you may not get digital signals. Try an external antenna (see above sites). Digital signals are enough or zero.

This TV doesn't have a cable tuner so a set top box would be needed for cable stations, check the box directions for the station you need to tune the TV to access the signal.

I hope this helps.

My 96 year old Mother-in-law has a Sears (SR) Model 580 television. We cannot figure out how to get it to Channel 3 so as to hook up a new Federally Sponsored reception box. There is a panel for...


Those adjustments were marked with letters so you could set ant position to any channel, and the channel know was marked A-L as well. The set came with labels you could put into the knob with the numbers.

Associated with each of those adjustment screws should be a small switch, labeled (if I remember correctly...I was a Sears TV tech over 10 years ago and haven't seen one of these sets since then!) VL, VH and UHF. VL is for channels 2-6, VH 7-13 and UHF 14 up. There might also be a little indicator window showing how far up the band you've gone. There may also be a switch marked AFT on/off. If you have that, turn it off to set the tuning and turn it back on when you're done. Put the switch on VL and turn the adjustment until you're tuned to channel 3. You'll know when since you'll see the programming.

I hope I haven't been totally off base. Like I said it's been a while. If this has helped, please feel free to give this solution a good rating. (If not, please feel free to pretend this never happened!)

Channel numbers above 13 do not come in. This started after a power failure. All numbers are received on another TV at that site. How do I program the stations that should be received?


Go into the TV's setup screen and set the tuning mode for "cable" or "CATV". It got set back to "air" after the power failure. When set for off-air tuning, only channels 2 through 13 tune properly. Set for cable and rescan channels and you'll be set.

You need the original remote for that. Try "remote controls.com" and I believe they should have one. If not, let me know.
