Question about Televison & Video

Wharfedale DTR i have bought a Wharfedale TU160DTR and for some reason when i do a channel scan to set it up it says ''scan failed'' and i only have about 15 channels? its not a reception problem because my other box (i bought this new one because i wanted a card slot) works perfectly receiving all channels. i have a setanta card and am supposed to leave it on channel 5 or channel 34(setanta) to activate my card, but i cant get those channels? i have tried everything, turning it off, resetting, unplugging the aeriel lead etc. i even changed the box as i thought it may be faulty, but that does the same thing?? please help!!!!!! thanks

I've just bought the same dtr myself, and it had no problems scanning the channels, the other solution is to register a topuptv card that you had supplied with the box, put it in the box with the pin side facing up on channel 5 for an hour, take the card out then re-insert it the same way then after upto four hours setanta should appear, aswell as the other channels, they work perfectly on mine, much better than the thomson ones ever did, le us know how you get on with it

Truetech 10 inch under the counter tv is stuck on channel 2. I need 3. Channel buttons on tv & remote do not change 2 to channel 3. Unplugging, Resetting hasn't worked Any ideas?


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

None of the codes are working to set up my xfinity remote to adjust the volume. Is there a code that isn't listed?


No as the codes listed are for the settings in the remote if the code listed doesn't control the volume you need to get an updated newer remote with all the newer code sets
As you may find that one code controls the channel and another may control the volume and will be unable to use them at the same time

I've tried to set up a Bose remote to my TV and B Ray player. I can get the programme change, menu and the channel guide working but not the volume + or - .I've tried other codes as instructed.


Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order.

I have a 39 inch element tv i cant program the cable channels


Typically you can access the menu, select "tuner" or something similar, make sure you're selected either on CATV or ANT (or similar), then do a channel scan. Should be pretty straightforward. Oh, and make sure you actually HAVE cable. If it's digital cable, you may need an external converter box for it to work.
