There is a button under the bottom edge of the screen (with the controls) that has the options "Normal" and "CATV" - press this and it should solve your problem.

I hope you are able to get into the menu with the front panel.

when you are in the menu you want to be able to make the auto-programing feature works. The cable box has to be already installed and working. when the tv programming crosses the channel 4 and there is a signal there, pretty sure is going to look it. This is the easiest.
The other solution is the menu sometimes allows you to make programming manual. in manual you are able to search channels one by one and allow it in the memory or not, basically then go to manual programming scroll up or down to find the channel four and use enter (sometimes right arrow in order to change the chanel number from red to green) to record in memory this channel. Once again I hope helps you.

I have removed all cable boxes from my home. I cannot get the tv remote to change channels. I was told by the cable tech that I needed to do a channel search. How do I do that?


Which specific model do you have? The menus may depend on your model. Are you using the original TV remote or a different remote? If you do not have the TV remote, try the buttons on the TV. Use the channel up/down buttons to navigate through the menu items and the volume up button to enter a sub-menu.

Try Menu and locate the Channel sub-menu. Then make sure that the antenna Air/Cable item is set correctly. Then the Channel Search option is on the next line. This is the method for the LCD2050. For the TTM2901L, you need the same Channel sub-menu but the channel search is called "Auto Program".

A number of other manuals for Polaroid TVs are available here: http://www.polaroid-tv.com/polaroid-lcd-tv/manual/ .

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your model number, I'll be glad to provide additional help. (Note: without the model, I can't be sure which tuners (NTSC - analog OTA or cable, ATSC - digital OTA, or QAM - digital cable) are in your TV. This may change whether you can receive any stations without the cable boxes.)

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

Which connection are you using from the sat receiver to the tv?
Coax / standard rg6 cable?
Did you try to manually add(in the menu/tuner setup/find channel/add) the channel you need ?

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2


If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

My remote wont change channels


I need to use the cable remote to change the channel and the TV remote to change volume.
That is because your TV is looking at the output of the cable box (probably on channel 3 or 4) so the TV has to be statically tuned to see the cable box's output.
On the second question; I, and perhaps others, can't answer this without spending a lot of time to download manuals for both systems while you have them (presumably, since they are new) on hand. You didn't include the TV's model number anyhow so even that wouldn't be adequate.
The home theatre may have a receiver but what does it receive? Unless it also has channel capabilities that correspond to cable channels, it can't. The typical routing should be from the cable box to the TV S-video input and the sound can be routed separately from the cable box to either/or both, the home theatre's and also the TV's audio inputs.
When I am installing new stuff, I make a sketch of the routing I want (or have) to use. To me, this is less confusing than the supplied instructions.

JVC television-lost old remote-have universal /can't add channels


I don't have an answer for your question.

However, I do have a suggestion. You can hook up a vcr to your tv, then put the tv on channel 3 or 4 (whichever the vcr is set for) and change the channels through your vcr. You have to have the cable go first to your vcr and then out to the tv.

Changing Remote Control Code

This Remote is capable of transmitting two control codes; one set
to respond to A code control signals and another set to respond to
B code control signals. This Remote control is preset to send A
code signals because your VCR is initially set to respond to A code
signals. You can easily modify your VCR and the Remote to
respond to B code signals. When using two JVC VCRs, set two
VCRs and their Remotes to different codes, so that you can
operate these VCRs separately.

A
Set remote control code for Remote

A
Press and hold A/B.
B
Press the Number key .2..
C
Press OK, and release A/B.


.
The Remote now can transmit B code control signals.
B
Check remote control code for VCR

Press and hold 4
on the VCR for more than 5 seconds while the
VCR is turned off. The code currently set appears on the display
panel.

C
Change code for VCR

Press any key on the Remote. The VCR now responds to B code
control signals.

To set the Remote and the VCR back to A code control signals,
repeat the same procedure as shown above except pressing the
Number key .1”
