How do I find a video to hook up my Samsung TV? Model BN68-04027A-03 The TV was a Xmas gift and did find a video and now I can't find it Tx. Wanda


The English owner's manual for the part number listed is available at...

http://www.manualslib.com/manual/146620/Samsung-Bn68-01171b-03.html#manual

Page six (6) indicates the back panel of your Plasma TV has two HDMI inputs, one component (RGB) and a specialized AV input/output connector. The latter requires a cable that is popular in Europe. Adapters to use it with US standard S-Video and RCA composite video are difficult to locate.

HDMI and component cables are available at big box stores (Best Buy, WalMart etch) but are much cheaper from generic internet sellers.

I am not sure about the second half of your question concerning "get to channel 3 to get to all other channels).

I must assume you have told the TV to "scan" for other channels (cable or over the air (OTA) with the black antenna/RF cable connected directly to the back of the TV.

If you have done so I am guessing you have connected the antenna cable first to a RECORDER or CABLE BOX. In many cases, these will only output channel 3 or 4 and block all other channels when turned on. In order to see other channels, you will need to buy a 2-way RF splitter so that both the recorder or Cable box can be connected at the antenna cable at the same time. Please note, doing so will mean you cannot see the output of the recorder or cable box on channel 3 or 4 but must use its the video/audio (HDMI, component, composite, S-Video) outputs from it to the TV. Again, this splitter is available from big box stores or the internet.

How do I repair an LG 32LK330-Ub Auto channel tuning does not work.


If you have a cable box and your cable is attached with coax to the antenna or cable input you're probably receiving everything on Ch 3 or 4. If you don't have a cable box, then make sure the input / source is set to cable and not antenna.

How do you set up an SP-813 indoor TV antenna?


There's not a lot to this antenna; nor much in the way of knowledge required to set it up. Connect a length of coax cable from the F type screw connector on the antenna. Connect the other end to your TVs antenna input. Plug in the power adapter. Switch on the antenna and set the gain adjuster to the half way position between min and max.

Now look at your neighbours properties. Which way are all their antenna pointing? Point yours in the same direction.

If you know what channel on the tuning scale the local TV stations use for broadcast then tune your TV manually. Then fine tune gain and direction of the antenna for best reception. If you don't know the tuning channel it's a bit more pot luck. Let the TV do an auto tuning and hope you have not too much or not too little gain and the antenna pointing in the right direction.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.
This video shows troubleshooting steps to use when a "No signal" message appears.

I hook my antenna to the back and I'm not receiving a picture


Hi,

I'm assuming your Antenna is connected to your TV with a co-axial cable? If so, please make sure you have run the Analogue/Antenna/Air channel scan correctly:

1. Switch the TV on
2. Press the "MENU" button on the Curtis remote supplied with the TV.
3. Press the RIGHT arrow button five times to highlight the "Channel" menu
4. Press the "ENTER" button or the DOWN arrow once to open the "Channel" menu

The Air/Cable option should be highlighted.

5. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow buttons to set the "Air/Cable" option to "Air"
6. Press the DOWN arrow to highlight "Auto Scan"
7. Press the "ENTER" button or the RIGHT arrow once to start the automatic channel scan.

When the scan has finished, the TV should automatically return to viewing mode. If not, just press the "EXIT" or "MENU" button on the remote to close the menu.

You also need to make sure the correct INPUT/SOURCE is selected on the TV:

1. Press the "SOURCE" button on the Curtis remote
2. Use the UP/DOWN arrows to highlight "TV" in the INPUT SOURCE menu
3. Press the "ENTER" button on the remote to select "TV" and close the INPUT SOURCE menu.

This should be all you need to do to watch your TV from an antenna source.

Please post back if you are still unable to get it to work and need further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

I have a Sanyo DP32648 that keeps losing only one channel in the program. When the TV is turned off, that channel disappears from the program. I have to manually reboot the entire list. How can I solve...


It sounds like there is some electrical noise interference that would not be "fixable". If though, we reconfigure the way that they are connected together, we may be able to avoid the noise.

Instead of allowing the antenna signal to "pass through" the 625 we will skip it.

After following the directions, switching between satellite and antenna will be done by selecting on the SANYO "Input 1" for satellite, and selecting "Ant" for antenna. K?

Try this:

From the 625 Tuner 1- using RCA cables (a.k.a. composite cables, or red, white, yellow cable), connect to "Input 1" on the Sanyo TV. To see composite cables go to http://www.wowvision.tv/settingsandconnections.htm

Next, remove the coaxial cable between the Sat box and TV. (Sanyo "Ant. In" port and 625 "Out to TV" port) Set that cable aside.

Now, remove the incoming antenna cable from the 625 "Ant. In" port, and connect it to the Sanyo's "Antenna In" port.

Finally, scan for channels and check for the presence of CBS.

Once verified, test the TV by turning off and on.

Turn on the satellite receiver and switch Sanyo to "Input 1" to verify sat picture.

I believe this solution will satisfy your needs. Please let me know if it doesn't work, and I will need to talk to you about signal strengths, again.

God bless,

I can't seem to get any digital channels


Before scanning for channel, check to see if the Antenna input is set to Cable or Antenna. If you have rabbit ears or and outside antenna then set it to antenna. If you have cable then set it to cable. Then rescan for channels. If this has already been set then the next step is to check the antenna or cable feed. If possible plug the antenna or cable feed into another TV that is known to be working correctly. If it is capable of receiving digital channels then the problem is likely the Samsungs ATSC tuner and will require service.
If neither TV is getting Digital channels then I will need more info on your antenna setup and where you are located. I am a pro on TV antennas and reception.
Hope this helps
Have a great Day

Sharp Aquos LC 32G4U not receiving any channels-


Most locations are real hard to get local stations using indoor antennas. If you are in a location where you do not have cable, I would try either a outside antenna on the roof or go with Direct TV Dish / Dish Network system.
I hope this helps,

No digital channels


Hi quinny 1982,

The first thing to check do is look in the manual on how to do a factory reset.

Once you've done that look at this page on how to check the signal strength the TV is receiving. Anything less than 50% and most tuners will not display a picture.

If the signal strength is okay then try another auto tune.

If your still having a problem then I'd suggest you you might have a faulty unit. However, a lot the time companies like to blame your reception area, TV Antenna (Ariel) or cable length or quality. Yes, old coaxial cable used for analogue TV is not very good when used with digital equipment (not a surprise)!

From what you've described, if you can only get a mono signal I'd be surprised it that's actually a digital channel.

Don't forget to check your Antenna connectors.

Hope this is helpful.

Best of luck.
