I have a Sharp LC-32SB24U TV and I have "cut the cable cord"

Customer Question
I have a Sharp...

I have a Sharp LC-32SB24U TV and I have "cut the cable cord" and installed an OTA outside antenna. All other tvs in the house pick up all local channels but the Sharp does not pick up one on the main channels in the area (fox kdfw). I have tried made many search attempts using the "menu" without success. Is there a way to manual add the channel or have you encountered anything similar?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your LC-32SB24U?

Ben

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yes

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue with your LC-32SB24U? What happened right before this?

I had cable

Yes, you can try manually adding a channel using the menu, however if it does not pick it up automatically then the signal may be too weak.

Have you tried adjusting the antenna or using a signal booster?
