Possibly a bad connection on the antenna jack on tv. Does it wiggle at all? TVs have to be made so cheap these days because us consumers buy the cheapest products. The antenna jack or f connector is sometime only held on by the solder that area he's it to the circuit board. When the tv gets move 4 ft and there is a 3 ft coax cable, the f conn solder will break. Sometimes it is easy to resolder if you are a little handy and are qualified to disassemble the tv. Otherwise if you use sat or cable you can bypass this issue by using the hdmi on the receiver to tv and get your local channels thru sat or cable

SOURCE: PROBLEM WITH GETTING LOCAL hd CHANNELS

You need to have a set top box.

By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least $150.

SOURCE: I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV.

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

you cann not hook an antenna and cable to a splitter together and expect it to work
the only way that will work , if your tv had two tunners Try doing a scan with cable
only on the cable setting

SOURCE: my tv just stopped getting antenna reception today.

your anntena may be set to cable rather than to AIR. check the setting on the TV to verify it isnt set to cable when you are using an over the air antenna. also it may be the input, if you are using coaxial for the input say #1 and it is acutally on #2 then you may need to change the input. Since I didn't see a brand of TV I cant walk you through it. ALso there is a TV/video button try hitting it one time on the remote. if all fails then unplug the tv for 30 minutes and try setting it up again.

Your choices usually are cable with/without digital channels and Cable with / without digital channels. Once you choose which tuner the TV will use, then it will autoscan for channels.

This tv is not connected to cable or dish, but has an interior antenna. up to about 2 months ago, we could get network channels (abc, nbc,cbs) which is all we wanted. Suddenly CBS dropped out, says "no...


How far away is the CBS station? Are there any obstacles that would block the signal (say new construction)?

What channels do antennaweb.org or tvfool.com suggest you will get from your location? (Antennaweb is more conservative and assumes an outdoor antenna.) Do you need to rotate your antenna to get one transmitter or the other? Indoor antennas are more likely to get interference and direction issues.

You may want to restore your TV to the default and then rescan the channels. (This may or may not help. It usually helps more with scrambled information than lost channels.)

I hope this helps.

(good luck. I've had issues with my CBS and Fox affiliates (sharing a transmitter location). At first it was clearly my TV and the reset helped. Now I have no clue as to the cause - the external TV antenna gives a strong signal on the other TV. The problem TV says the signal is bad and this is the closest transmitter and antennaweb says I should get it easily. Even pointing the antenna straight at the transmitter doesn't help.)

Describe how to program channels on lg tv


Very simple -
You will need to find a feature that says 'Auto Tune'

This first will ask you to select between:
1) Regular TV - off air antenna - connection
2) Cable TV - connection
3) DSS TV - Connection

If you aren't ready for digital TV with your antenna or cable you may get very few channels.

LG LCD HDTV 'NO SIGNAL'


To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru
