Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

I bought an wuria eq5588 , got it home and hooked it up to my cable , did the channel scan , when it was finished it did not have all the channels my other tvs get . The pictures are distorted on most of the channels . I've rescanned and it is the same . Do I need any other cable cord that I don't have. I don't subscribe to HD with my cable company, but surely that should not make a difference.



Answers :

It actually sounds like you may have simply misthreaded the cable, or it's just not tight enough.

The other possibility is to check the input type in the OSD (on screen display) menu, and make sure it's not set for ANTENNA rather than CABLE before you do the scan.
Actually, I'll bet that's the problem, but unscrew and reconnect that cable anyway, and check for loose connections at any splitters you may have etc. You may have pulled the end partially off the cable or bent the pin or something when you were changing it from the old tv to the new one.

I own a Westinghouse LTV-32W1 and I am trying to hook Comcast basic cable up to it through the coaxial input. But, the only coaxial input is labeled ANTENNA.. I had the TV scan channels from cable AND antenna and it only found one channel. Analog at that. But, it doesn't do anything. How do I run basic cable to this TV?
