Doesn't get all cable channels

Hello again,
On Menu setup, there's autoprogram, which I've manually programmed all the channels from 1 to 60 as enabled. Cable/Air, which is on cable. VCR1 Channel, which is 02 Enabled. And Cable Channel, which I don't know how to program. I know it's not a problem with the cable, as I have an old Sony Trinitron tv that gets all the cable channels.
Any suggestions ? Krista

    Thanks ! I don't have an external box for the cable, just the cord that comes out of the wall. Does this mean that the cable channel should be disabled ? Also, after 4 phonecalls to Thomson Electronics (the original manufacturers), they've finally told me that I need to get a convertor box. I don't understand this though, as my old Sony tv is analog & gets all the cable channels fine, which I assume means that the cable is not digital, & they've told me that this GE tv is also analog. I'm confused. Should I still try to autop[rogram it with the vcr on & playing a tape ? The autoprogram right now works, except that it erases all the channels except for 51 to 58. Hmmmm. I'm confused.

With the menu set to cable signals, the autoprogram should catch all of the cable channels. The Cable Channel option allows you to use either channel 3 or 4 as the "cable" channel. This is when you have an external box that you use to tune in cable rather than the TV directly. The easiest way here is to autoprogram the TV while playing a VCR tape. That will insure that channel 3 is included.

Does the autoprogram fail?

    I don't know what cable system you have. but the TV should be able to receive the channels without a problem. I've done it thousands of times. Unless your cable system is different from what I've seen. A converter box or cable box will work as well as that box will effectively convert the cable stations to a songle channel (3 or 4). Perhaps a call to the cable company asking what the cable standard is would help to figure this out.

I don't have a setup button on my vibe axcess remote can I bypass that and if so how?


Hello Tracy,
I hate to say it but you have to look harder at the VIBE remote for that setup key button, otherwise it will be impossible to program it!
The instructions on how to program it can be found here; How to Program Vibe Universal Remote
I hope this helps!
Good Luck!

I've tried to set up a Bose remote to my TV and B Ray player. I can get the programme change, menu and the channel guide working but not the volume + or - .I've tried other codes as instructed.


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily.

I have a 39 inch element tv i cant program the cable channels


Typically you can access the menu, select "tuner" or something similar, make sure you're selected either on CATV or ANT (or similar), then do a channel scan. Should be pretty straightforward. Oh, and make sure you actually HAVE cable. If it's digital cable, you may need an external converter box for it to work.

My tv has gone some orange colour


Try unplugging your tv and anything connected to it - you might want to take a picture first so you have a reference. I would also unplug everything connected to the tv: cable, stereo, etc. Wait a few minutes, then plug in and re-connect everything.

You can also go into your TV's setup menu and adjust the picture settings - try restoring the default settings first.
