Problems setting up

I can only get Channel 7 from this TV. Please help me to set up other channels (ie Channel 2, Channel 9, Channel 10, Channel 6, ABC2 and Bris 31. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated. I've had the set since Nov 07 and have not been able to set it up for regular viewing of the commercial channels apart from channel 7.

    It's a Palsonic LCD TFTV 386BK - it came with an instruction booklet which is in dubiously phrased English and I am unable to get the other channels working. I receive Channel 7 clearly but that's the only one. I have an amplified antenna. Thanks so much for your support.

    Thanks for the info, Denny!

    To start off, have you accessed your "Channel Setting" page, and performed "Manual Search"? There is a selection for "Fine Tuning", which help you dial in the exact frequency those channels are being broadcasted in.

    Have you tried placing your tv closer to a window, to give a better view for the antenna? You may also try taking plain old speaker wire, hanging it out your window, and touching the other end to the antenna and seeing if it helps.
    Typically, though, antennas are created at a certain length to pick up the proper wavelength (frequencies) for which they are needed. This obviously isn't a permanent solution, but it will give you some ideal as to whether it's placement or just reception in your area.

    If you are unable to get your channels to display properly after that, you may wish to invest in a signal amplifier. Much like your cars radio, certain stations seem to have much better coverage than others. Purchasing an amplifier may help. Here is one you may consider:

    Also, visit the following site, it will help you find the proper antenna to use (requires some personal info, use at your own risk!):

    Thanks for reading, and good luck! If I didn't answer your question properly, please explain what I did wrong. Thanks alot!

My Plasma TV is having problems on Channel 31 (not sure of the frequency assigned)

Do you have an old VCR? because they used to work around this channel. If not forget what I said. If so, try changing the output, or if you don't use it, put it somewhere else.

Can't get abc2, abc3, etc. we have a digital set top box. how can we get it to show the chanells?

My set-top box has an 'autoscan' function in the channel menu under setup. Try that to see if it will be able to find the missing channels. Here, some time after the initial changeover to digital, they changed some of the channels, and a new scan was necessary to get all again.

This TV doesn't have channel labeling. You'll need to keep your cable channel card handy, sorry to say.

Try the keys on the set I would think there is a menu key there on the set to help get you out of favorite channels. Universal remotes don't always work as thought should be and usually onthe the devices remote will access all functions. Is our remote dead or busted? Try opening it up look for bad solder on the circuit board clean the switch contacts on the the board it may just fix it

You tv needs to have av plugs. Yellow for video in Red and White for Audio in. These need to be in the "in" ports. then you can turn to the right av channed it should be before channel 2 so just keep going down. If your tv has more than one set of av in ports there will be more than one av channel below channel two.
