Hi! i have a dynex tv from best buy and like everyone else, cannot get the channels to work. I've done the channel search and can now get channels 2-13, but none others. Also, i went to dynex's website and got the code for my sony universal remote (8043) but have no idea how to input the code. Can anyone help me please? i might should add that i am not the most technology savvy person! thanks!

How is your TV setup--do you have a cable box, satellite, or basic cable? I would recommend going into the settings and running a channel search.
Press Menu. The on-screen display menu options with Setup highlighted. Press RIGHT arrow to enter the sub-menu, then press DOWN or UP to highlight AUTO CH SEARCH. Press ENTER or RIGHT arrow to start the search.
I bought this TV and had the exact same problem, I tried everything i could think of and so did Geek Squad but nothing worked. We called Best Buy to see about a return policy and the manager told us that the brands Dynex and Insignia do not work with certain cable companies, one being Comcast. Call Best Buy and ask if your cable company will work with the brand. My suggestions are to either return the TV and search for a new one, I did this, OR you could take a DVD/VCR player and connect the cable from your wall to the DVD/VCR player. Then use the red, yellow, and white wires to connect the TV to the DVD/VCR player. Put your TV on the proper input and cable will work fine, because you will see the picture from the player not directly from your TV. I hope this helps, if you need any further information just ask.
The Dynex LCD-19-09 19in LCD Tv has a digitial tuner in it already. I would recommend doing a channel scan and make sure it is on the "Antenna" setting instead of "Cable" and let it scan for channels. You will see all the analog channels like "7", "12" if they are still broadcasting, however, if you can pick up the digital channels, it will look more like "7-1" or 12-1; 12-2 etc.". To get to this, push the "Menu" button on the Dynex remote, then arrow down twice to TV, then push the right arrow and make sure it is set at Antenna and do a channel scan. Should get you whatever digital channels are available. If the digital antenna is not strong enough, you will need to get the digital one at Wal-Mart as previously suggested and hope that will convert the analog channels in your area.
Not out of luck, Dynex.com says to use codes from other model of televisions. The way I did it (I have a DirecTV remote as well) is just did a code search till I found which one turned it off. The only thing it won't do is change which input you use, but the menu, volume and channel controls all work fine.
If you are connected to Cable TV service you are probably already setup, but here are a few things to check for.
From the Menu, make sure the tuning band is set to Cable and not to Air or Antenna.
From the Menu perform an Auto Channel Search.
That should be all you need to do.
Now if you want the best High Definition picture, believe it or not you will need an Antenna, depending on your location you will be able to pick up OTA (over the air) channels in the purest form.
I can help you with this also, let me know.
Please rate this solution.
First of all, digital/HD signals are broadcast at UHF frequencies. You need to know if you have an UHF antenna and, if you do, that it is pointed to the TV stations broadcasting HD.
Second, since most TV's have a setup mode that automatically searches for channels that are able to be received, go to that "Setup" menu on your TV and start the auto search. It will list both analog and digital stations. Note that the analog channel may be, for instance, Channel 39 but the digital channel will be Channel 39-1. Tune to the "dash 1" channel.
What you have to do it go to the TV Menu and go to channel. Then go to channel scan and do one of those. THe problem is that is just doesnt know where to look for channels, but a quick scan will fix that.
