I did a test and sent ETH (6) to my ETH account, but they dont show up in the account balance, however ETH and ETC both show on the etherscan.io how do I get them in the account and I never set up a wallet because it says I need to have a balance before I can make that contract... so I could goto myetherwallet and make a seperate wallet for free by following instructions/zip offline etc. but I still dont know how to take my ETH and ETC off the chain, I have a bit of ETH on coinbase but no address to send it to yet...besides the one i cant get off da chain...
You cannot take Ether "off" the block chain as that would invalidate the paradigm itself. What you mean is send them to an account whose private key you have access to (typically managed by a client/wallet) so that you can further use the balance for future transactions.
Do you have the private key for the addresses you sent the Ether to? If not, then you cannot recover the balance.
