Hi,

Let's try the simple ones first:

  • determine if any of the buttons on the front panel control are stuck;
  • try a reset, unplug from the mains for a couple of hours to dissipate residual power. Hopefully this will revert the unit back to factory defaults;
  • double check the remote and its batteries.
Other than the above, all other diagnosis and test would require opening the unit.
This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

If you are considering a DIY, pls post back brand and model.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Finally bought anRCA antenna for my new Dynex TV.Nothing no signal,no way to scan for channels I can see.AGGH.Is it a lemon?


Which Dynex TV do you have? The manuals for most Dynex TVs are available from the product page. Start at http://www.dynexproducts.com/products/televisions.html . If you have an older Dynex that isn't on the main list, check under Discontinued Products. Alternatively search for your model. Then click on the Support tab to find the manual for that model.

For at least one Dynex TV (DX-32L152A11), the procedure to scan for channels is below.
To scan for channels, first make sure that the current input is set to TV. (Press the input button on the TV or the remote). Then press Menu and use the left/right arrows to select TV. Then press Enter or down arrow (the manual says the right arrow). Use the up/down arrows to select the entry to change. First, make sure that the Tuner Mode (first item) is set to Air (use the left/right arrows to change this). Press Menu to go back to the TV menu. Then go down to Channel Scan and press Enter. You may need to confirm the channel scan and press Enter again. Wait for the scan to be completed.

On a discontinued model (DX-32L151A11), the procedure is slightly different. With the input set to TV, press Menu. Select the Channel submenu and press Enter or down arrow. Set the TV mode to Antenna (use the left/right arrows to change the value). Then press the up/down arrows to reach AutoScan. Press Enter. Move cursor to highlight Yes and press Enter again. Wait for the scan to be completed.

I hope this helps.

(There were some Dynex monitors built. They usually do not have a coaxial antenna in port since they didn't have tuners.)
