You need to make the selection for cable reception in the menu instead of broadcast or air. And when you do then do an auto scan to capture all your cable channels.

My emachines et1300-02 won't turn on how to fix it

See if the problem is the Power On switch, or Power Supply, Kimberly.

Bypass the Power On switch.
The test does Not involve the Power On switch, or it's wires.

1) First follow Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE, reaching inside your unplugged from power computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open;
TOUCH an unpainted surface, of the metal frame of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

IF you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.

2) Open the computer case:
Viewing the computer from the Front, the Left Side Panel removes.
There is a Thumbscrew, or Philips screws along the edge of the left Side Panel.
Loosen the Thumbscrew/s all the way, or remove the Philips screws.

Use the fingerpull molded out of the back of the left Side Panel, and pull the Side Panel to the rear of the computer.
May only pull back about 1 inch, then is brought straight out to the side.

You also may wish to remove all cables, and lay the computer on it's side, opening up. Easier to work on, will not affect the computer.
(You could turn the computer upside down, and it will work just fine.
Not the optical drive though! Disk would fall out, lol!)

There is a main power cable going to the motherboard.
It is a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
This is a general example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable,

Here it is shown in the ET1300-02,

Look at the main view. Has four smaller views underneath it, and three dots after the four views.
Click on the 3 dots.
This takes you to a small screen that shows many views of the ET1300-02.

Left-click on the middle photo in the second row.
Shows the left Side Panel removed.

The 24-pin ATX main power cable is in the middle, and next to the red SATA cable that goes up to the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

24-pin ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, a jumper wire is used on the 24-pin ATX main power cable's connector.

The preferred jumper wire is a straightened out paperclip, bent into a U-shape.
The top of the U, is wrapped a few times with black plastic electrical tape.
This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U-shaped jumper wire upside down. The 'legs' are what is used.

Looking back at the Playtool link above, look at the view to the far right.
See the Green wire?
The green wire is the Soft Power On wire. If it is jumped with a wire that is a Ground wire, the Power Supply is supposed to turn on.

Note where the wires go into the connector, of the 24-pin ATX main power cable. This is the Back of the connector. This is also where the 'legs' of the jumper wire goes.

The 'legs' of the jumper wire goes down into the squarish socket holes, RIGHT NEXT TO the existing wire that is in the socket hole.

One leg goes down into the socket hole with the Green wire.
Slides past the insulation of the wire, and touches a metal terminal down at the bottom of the wire.

All wires going into that 24-pin ATX main power cable connector, end in a metal terminal.
The metal terminal looks like this, (Only smaller),

Looking at the photo in the middle on the Playtool link, you can see the rounded tips of those metal terminals. (They go over contact pins on the motherboard's connector)

The jumper wire MUST touch that metal terminal.

The other 'leg' of the jumper wire goes down into ANY socket hole, that has a Black wire in it.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Voltage used? 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries store 3 Volts DC.
Not saying there may be a spark. For this reason you may feel safer wearing a glove on the 'jumper wire hand'.

The contact period is no more than 2 seconds. The Power On switch is a Momentary Contact Switch.

IF, the Power Supply comes on you have a bad Power On switch.

IF, the Power Supply does Not come on you have a bad Power Supply.

TV picture won't come on, just get white static

There may have some crack or loose to the circuit board during drop. Just get it serviced. No more component should be repalced. Only service should be done. OK.

Everything from Channel 14 and up won't reset

If you have just an air antenna and your tv is set for cable and not air, you will not pickup any channels past 13.

Hello, My samsung ln82341w has sound problems. Two cable channels have no sound; 1 channel has crackling/static sound; and most of the other channels the sound will go out when the first one or two...

The problem isn't with your TV, its with the cable company.
Call the cable company, problem is most likely with your digital box or a signal problem.

Will not go past channel 21. All I get is static

Are you using a cable? If you do try re-scanning your channel and be sure that you're on the cable mode

Only goes up to Channel 19.

Go into the TV's setup screen and make sure its tuning mode is set for "cable" (may say "CATV"). I'm not familiar with this set so I don't know exactly what the screen will say, but there should be some reference to channel setup, TV setup, tuning band, etc. It's probably set on "AIR" now.

Normally, when set for off-air reception, the set works properly for channels 2 through 13, and 14 up don't tune properly. Since you're getting channels up to 19, there may in fact be some kind of tuner problem. If the TV is already set for cable tuning, you may have found why the former owner was freecycling it. But check that tuning mode.

Will not show anything but static

Make sure the TV tuning mode is set for "cable". This will be somewhere in the TV's setup menus; check your manual for all the details. If it's set for "air" as I suspect it is, only the first 13 channels will be found when connected to cable. Channels 14 and up don't get tuned in on "air". Once you've set the TV for cable, rescan channels and you should have 'em all.

Thanks for asking here. If this solution has been what you needed, please take a moment to rate it!

No picture - 65535 shows on screen

My 42" Dynex just did the same thing. 65535 NO SIGNAL.
The channel label for this said "ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ"

I went to menu... Channels .... Set for Cable TV... Scan Channels.
It rescanned. It took twice as long as normal to scan.
After the scan completed it worked fine except of one thing.

ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ stuck on the screen.

I shut the TV off, then things returned to normal.

Hope this helps.

This TV is only 6 weeks old.
Cable hook up.
It is -plugged into a brand new UPS power supply.
I used the sleep timer to shut off TV. The 65535 problem occured the next time the TV was powered up.

Need help viewing all public television channels

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 Stargazer
