Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

How can i tune my tv in to recieve freeview channels?? tried everything with no luck. cant even get analogue channels? i know this isnt a problem with the aerial as other tvs work!!



Answers :

In the US, you are not able to obtain free HD channels without a tuner and an antenna. Some HDTV's have built in tuners and depending on your location to the broadcasts, you may be able to obtain reception. It is possible that one of your TVs has a built in tuner if it is newer and this other TV does not. Analougue channels no longer exist as all channels have been converted to digital broadcast and would need to be converted if trying to view through an analogue TV. Thanks.

I have an LG 26LZ5RV TV. I have connected it from the RF output of my Sky+ box (using a coaxial cable) to the "Ant In" socket at the back of the TV. The RF output on the Sky box is set to Channel 35 and the power is on. I know that the output is working, as I have tested it on an old portable TV with manual tuning. My problem is that I cannot get my LG TV to tune in to the signal, using either auto or manual tuning. I have used System "I" and tried setting the Channel to 35 then searching b

I have a Wharfedale L15T11W-C which was previously connected via a Sky box. I have now moved the TV to another room and cannot get a TV channel. I have purchased a portable digital aerial to connect to the TV but as I thought perhaps this might be the problem I then connected the TV to the main aerial which services the main TV in the lounge. I still could not get the TV to find any channels. Help!

Although my tv is connected correctly, we have somehow got it "off" the correct channel I think. We don't use this tv often but a few months ago it worked fine. We have done nothing to it that I know of BUT now it just produces "snow". I believe it is on the wrong channel but I don't know what the correct one is. HELP, it is now spring break, the grandkids are coming. I need help! What is the channel to have the tv on to receive DishTV? If that isn't the problem, what else could it be?

I have a Philips 42pf7421d/37 lcd tv having problems. When you first turn the tv on it seems to work perfectly fine. About 5 minutes later my picture cuts out and I get a scrambled screen. Turn it off and on, same problem. Any ideas? Hoping I can get this fixed cheaply doing it myself. Im handy but dont know much about televisions. Thanks


First, you need to make sure all of the vent panels on the tv are clear of obstructions. Heating may be causing the problems. Next, get a hold of a clean, dry source of forced air and blow out the inside of the case and the internals of the tv. ... Flat Panel Televisions

I have a Hitachi Ultravision TV Model #50ux53k v7h002332. The remote is working and also changed the Batteries. The Tv is not reacting to the remote like it should. It randomly will not turn on or off and sometimes the volume and channel control does the same. I will have to get very close to the tv for it to work, and then it still sometimes will not work. what migh be the Problem?


If you have to hold the remote very close it is likely a bad remote receiver in the front control panel; the only other reason would be a dirty lens there or at the top of the remote.Let me know if all manual front buttons work normal. ... Hitachi Projection Televisions
