I got a Mitsubishi ws-55411 from a friend and I am trying to set up the cable. this is my first HD TV. The cable comes from a wall outlet (no cable box). I followed the manual and attached the cable into ant. A and turned the input connection on. I am only getting channels 2-13, I think these are the same stations I would get with just an antenna and no cable which makes me wonder if the cable is being detected at all. I have confirmed that the cable is working, because if it was not I would not

My Sony KDL-52WL140 does not respond to any controls, not the remote, and not even the buttons on the tv itself. The only way you can turn it off is to unplug it, then, hours later, when you plug it back in, it is still stuck in the on position. It is tuned to a channel that gets only snow and static, and that's all we get. It was working fine, then started flipping in and out of various menus on it's own, as we watched, them tuned itself to the static channel and nothing will unstick it. The

Dvd connection we have our direct tv cables hooked up correctly we believe, because we get the signal just fine. When hooking up the A/V cables from the DVD player to the other ports available however, it doesnt pick up the signal after we change the Source on the TV. So basically, everytime we want to watch a dvd, I have to unhook the direct tv a/v cables and hook up the dvd av cables in the same ports. It works just fine then. But we would love to not have to go thru that process everytime.

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

We have followed every letter in the manual but have been unable to program channel 2 on our TV.  This channel is a legitimate channel on our other TV that's connected to a cable box. In the Toshiba, the cable is directly connected to Ant1. Am I missing something?  This channel used to work some months ago.  Is it a change from the cable provider's end that has caused this issue? Any help would be much appreciated.


I would try two things here---first with the remote for the set direct enter with the numbers on the remote 02 and enter to see if set will go there and second connect a different set to that connection to see if same issue or not. ... Flat Panel Televisions

SanyOur house was struck by lightening and now I can only get sound from my TV when connected by the coaxial cable or the RCA (red/white/yellow) cables. If I connect the TV using the componant (red/blue/green) jacks then I get full sound and picture so I know the TV picture does work. Trouble is I do not have an extra cable box or VCR to connect the TV by componant cable. Is there any way to fix the TV so that the coax or RCA hookup will provide picture too aside from taking it to a TV repair

Okay, well I have a JVC AV 32120 and it will run DVDs and all fine. That's great and all but when we plug the cable into the back and go to watch tv, we won't get anything coming through, just a blue screen. I've tried going into the menu and adding the channels individually, then the auto programing mode as well, I've gone as far as resetting all the v chip codes and still nothing! I'm desperate, please anyone?!


I would check and make sure you are connected properly in the back of the unit. Sometimes people put them in a little back ward and while they will allow you to watch a show they will not let the tv pass threw. the other would be making sure to selec ... JVC Standard (CRT) Televisions
