    cable not working

  • fritos62 Jul 17, 2008

    I had cable tv out this morning to check out the problem. I am not getting anything on the tv except mixed channels and can't watch anything. I have tried to reprogram and nothing is happening. The gentlemen from Time Warner said it is the TV. Now what? This TV was manufactured in April of 2003. Should I dump it. Something is wrong with this picture. Help!!!!

If you have it hooked up to a digital box, it shouldn't matter if the TV is on cable or antenna mode. The only thing that matters is that the TV is on channel 3. Channels will be changed on digital box. Some newer TV's use input 1 or 2 or AUX for it to work. If I were you i would hook everything up and start playing with the channels going up and down until you get a picture.

Do I need a converter box for a Hitachi 53uwx10ba TV?

Check to see what input the set is on--set in menu to catv or cable and connect with set on three if using a box---if not then auto program for channels.

If set on catv you should with the remote be able to direct enter a channel to see if tuner in set works or hook a dvd etc to a rear input to set to see if it works that way.

Trouble with Channel setup

It is important for the TV to know what type of
signal-Cable TV (CATV) or a normal antenna
you are using. Choose your signal (Antenna or
Cable):
Press MENU to see the main menu.
Press CH+ or CH- to highlight Setup.
Press OK
to enter the Setup submenu.
TV/CATV is highlighted. Press VOL+ or
VOL-
to select TV or CATV.
Choose CATV if you have Cable TV
service. (See page 4 for connection
details.) If you do not have Cable TV
service and you connected an antenna
to the TV, choose TV. (See page 5 for
connection details.)
Press MENU repeatedly to exit the
menu or the menu will automatically
disappear within a few seconds if no
buttons are pressed on the remote
control.

And here is the manual if you need .

Can't change TV to CATV mode

You must unplug the cable connecting the television and the cable box. Then turn the television off and then back on. Do not turn the cable box off or disconnect the cable in wire from the cable box especially if you use Cable Vision. It will take up to 20 minutes before the box comes back on. Now turn the television back on. When you access the Channel System menu, you have the access to the submenu choices. Change the Antenna option to CATV and the Current Channel to 3. Reconnect the cable box to the TV.

Also those that are having problems with the TV turning off periodically, make sure the sleep mode option does not have a number in it. For example, if the number is 10, it will turn off every 10 minutes.

Channel Scan on my Philips 26" TV only finds the local channels.

Hi.

you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.

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.

SYLVANIA LC200SL8 ? 20" LCD-TV Settup up channel setup

This is the chanel set up options I see on the online manual:
- CHANNEL SETUP -
ADD/DELETE(DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(TV/DTV)
AUTO PRESET CH(CATV)
! CATV takes approx. 50min.
To set up for over the air broadcast that local channels now have in HDTV, you will select AUTO PRESET CH(DTV). You will have to disconnect cable for this option; however, the cable company will send local channels over the cable.
Bottom line, if you have cable, use it, it will most likely still deliver the best signal.
So coonect cable and use this option:
AUTO PRESET CH(CATV)
Oh, and the reason it takes so long is because there are more channels to scan with cable then with the local over the air channels.

Cable setuo for model 27r410t

Get an antenna hooked up, even rabbit ears should pull in a few analog channels. Set top boxes will only output Ch 3 (switcheable to ch 4 on the back if needed) and cable may be dead or only give you scrambled CATV channels. You need to set your tuner to "antenna", not CATV, IRC,HRC, or ATSC (if you have a digital tuner) and do the setup again. You could have a bad tuner at worst, and all is not lost, just hook up a VCR via RCA cables and use the VCR tuner to change channels. Keep TV on Ch3.
