When you run a scan the TV changes to every channel and tries to tune in a station. that is why it takes so long. If your TV is only finding channel 4, I would guess that is the only station strong enough for it to pick-up. You should check and / or replace your antenna and or antenna cable. Then re-scan the channels. with a better antenna, it should find more stations.
Most older Tube type TVs need a converter to pick-up digital TV, if you have a converter, make sure it is plugged in.
You should not be getting any stations without a digital tuner TV or a converter box.
The FCC site says this:
The FCC established September 1, 2015 as the date for the termination of all analog low-power television service. Since that date, analog television should no longer exist in the United States. Until that time, LPTV stations were allowed to continue to operate their analog facilities.
Re:"shutdown after video comes up the green power light stays on but the set will not shut down while changing channels."
I do not think this has anything to do with logic circuits and video processing. When you stay on one channel the horizontal and vertical alignment circuit works more than if you change channels all the time. This is just a guess, but have a look at convergence ICs. when you keep changing channels the power amp ICs (or transistors) go on and off, if one of them is defective it will overheat and shut down. Other possibility is an internal tuner failure. Also test using a DVS or VCR.
You can program to regular (analog) antenna channels. To do so you must use the original remote which has a TV/DTV switch in the top right corner of the remote. Choose the appropriate mode for the type of channel you want to see or scan for. Here is a link to the owners manual and a picture of the remote swithc. The info on the signal switching is on pg.13. http://tv.manualsonline.com/manuals/mfg/funai/cr130dr8.html?idRes=707655
Hi, Sorry it took someone so long to get back to you, but nobody likes to give bad news. This tv has a 1.7R tube with 530 resolution and an NTSC tuner which means it is analog and with the new change this month you would need a converter box anyway unless you have cable or satellite. Because of this particular tube and the labor to change it, it would indeed more expensive to replace it than buy a new one. Best of luck to you!
It sounds more like a shut down circuit problem if you can feel static from the face of the picture tube after it tries to start up. There are several things that can trigger a shut down condition on TV's. For instance, if there is no vertical deflection signal present, the set may shutdown to prevent a permanent line being burnt across the front of the tube. If the power supply wasn't regulating the B+ voltage properly, it would shutdown to prevent damage in the horizontal sweep section. Or if the horizontal deflection circuit was defective and allowing the high voltage to climb too high (say above 33,000 volts) then the sensing circuit would trigger a shutdown event. If any of the above sounds like gibberish to you then you will need to take the set to a professional for repair.
