Sounds like a hookup issue--what is being used for 1080 on the set?

HDMI? Component?

You can also try a hard reset: Unplug TV from AC mains and remove all cables from TV. Wait about 30 minutes and replug to AC power and redo the cabling. Switch on the TV and see if it works..

I have experienced exactly the same issue on two Westinghouse sets. Try turning the set off when it reaches 83%. When I turn mine off and back on, it has saved the channels -- at least the ones it had found before it got hung up.

SOURCE: There is sound but no picture

Talked to a Westinghouse tech and told to unplug for about 3-5 minutes, then re-plug. It's like having to re-boot your computer when it goes down or starts acting wacky. It worked, I got picture. Says it could happen again, maybe 1-2 times a year is o.k., if it starts to happen every few weeks, then it's something more.

No sound


Try putting in a DVD or VCR tape..if they don't make any sound either...than you have probably blown an audio board fuse... But I bet that they will have sound which in that case the problem is more than likely the cable ITSELF not the box... the cable that carries the signal your tv has video on one wire and audio on another.. then sheilding etc.. it's probably got a short in audio ( I have seen brand new cables to do this so even if it looks ok try different one.) if that don't work... hook a different tv up at that location and see what happens... and then it's to call cable company to come fix the box which probably blew up scrambler... which would show that the output is working fine but unfortunately your tv is not able to dis cipher the audio because it's a tv not a cable decoding device...I hope that helps you.

The problem isn't with your TV, its with the cable company.
Call the cable company, problem is most likely with your digital box or a signal problem.

If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner

There isn't a tv signal on that coaxial cable. The other end of it is not connected to anything with an active signal. For example an indoor antenna, or an outdoor antenna, a cable TV company's active TV source (that you are payin for), or a satallite TV company that you are paying for them to turn on, also TV's do not have a built-in satallite tunner to tune in those sattallite channels, you have to use that company's external tunner box. No tunner box = no channels. Even U-Verse No Tunner Box = No TV.

My cable dont work no more my power went out i accidently pushed buttons and now my cable dnt come on my tv no more


this is a pretty common problem ... sometimes when the power goes out, the cable box at your house will reset some settings that the cable company had set. I know it is a pain to wait on hold for someone to help you, but most likely you will have to call the cable company's customer service line to talk to a representative there. They will be able to walk you through getting everything turned back on -- and they will also be able to tell you if there is a hardware problem on your end, or if it is a connection issue from their end.
I wish I could be more help on this, but I have had to deal with it several times in the past, and if resetting the box (unplugging it for 5 minutes, then plugging it back in) does not work, they probably have to reset their end as well.

I have a 32 inch tv, the picture only shows 23 inches


This is the tv station only broadcasting a certain size for the video. One way you can fix this is going into the menu and looking at zoom options. I use it all the time on my tv. If this doesn't work, call your cable company or your tv's manufacturer.

Trying to incorporate my Hannspree remote with my cable remote as to use just the cable remote......? Thanks, ph


Hi, unfortunately the only way to use your particular brands remote with your cable companies remote is if the cable remote has what's called a "LEARN " key. This is used for cloning another remotes codes to the cable's remote. Unfortunately most tv suppliers don't provide their codes for universal remote use. The first thing i would do is contact your cable providers customer assistance to see if they have setup codes for your brand. then if that doesn't work then you can always buy a universal remote with a " LEARN " function, enabling use with hanspree tv as well as current cable box. I hope this was helpful and thanks, let us know how we did, Good luck ,Prodzilla

  1. Hello boss, here is d way to make best use of it.
    step 1.Make sure ur LCD or Plasma HDTV has an HDMI port. Hopfuly u bought 1 with it, if not, you may be stuck using component cables. Not bad, but not he best. Component cables change d digital signal frm the cable box into an analog signal. This conversion allows for signal degradation. U want to keep the digital signal transmitted frm the cable company 2 go directly into ur HDTV. An HDMI cable will provide u wid this capability n with d clearest picture.
    2. Make sure ur cable box has an HDMI port. Most cable companies do not offer a cable box with an HDMI port on the initial install. You may need to upgrade by calling your cable company and asking if they have a cable box wid HDMI capability. Ask them 2 send u 1.
    3.Purchase an HDMI cable. TIP - The longer d distance between the cable box n d HDTV, the better d quality HDMI cable. This is due to degradation of d digital signal over long distances, wiz could result in a poor quality picture. ne distance over sixteen feet should be compensated 4 by using a heavier gauge HDMI cable. Oh yea, don't get taken by buying the most expensive cables. From what I have read, companies are cashing in on this relatively new technologymag-glass_10x10.gif. I bought my "gold-plated" HDMI cables from an Ebay Store, "eforcity" for about a quarter of the price found at the local electronic store. Connect one end of your HDMI cable into the HDMI (out) port on the back of your cable box and connect the other end to the HDMI (in) port on the back of your HDTV.55
    Read the instructions that came with ur new HDMI compatible cable box. These instructions will explain the download process the cable box needs to go through before use and the Setup Wizard that will program the cable box to send the correct picture format to your HDTV. If u did not get instructions, u can get them at the cable box manufacturers website. Scientific Atlanta's website: http://www.scientificatlanta.com/products/consumers/new_cableboxes.ht64. Adjust video, audio, and screen settings to ur liking. The explanation for these settings can be found in ur HDTV's user's manual.75.Push ur "source" button on ur remote control or HDTV n select HDMI. Tune to a Hi-Def channel. Most Hi-Def channels r in the 700 channel range. Check cable company listings 4 d specific channels.
  2. Have a nice time!!

Hi!

Check for the cables to the cable box/reciever. What type of cable are you using for connection with the cable box(HDMI,RCA component cables)? Your tv is fine as it is working with the dvd player. The issue is with the cables connecting the cable box or from the cable company. Call them to get more information about this issue(maybe weak signals)

Please ask for further clarifications.

Please rate this solution as Fixya if found useful.

Thanks

My HD channels all of a sudden come in like regular TV. What to do? The TV is a week old.


I called the cable company and they had me redo the settings on the TV's remote. Not sure why the settings changed as i only used the cable box remote. Anyhow it's fixed. Thanks
