Re: tv will not change channels

A solution is to unplug the TV for 30 minutes and then plug it back in. I helped an elderly friend with her new TV purchase. Two days later the channels would not change manually or remotely. "Someone" she called explained "something" and the channels change with the simple 30 minute "reset"

Re: tv will not change channels

Sounds like an eeprom problem or a microprocessor problem??? Also make sure the tv didnt lose its channel memory by reprogramming the channels feature in the menu. Good Luck

Can't change the channel on RCA TruFlat. It just has a blue screen and says "14-3"

That RCA TV has only an older analog tuner, so if you're still using it for off-the-air reception you'll need to be using it with a digital converter. I'm assuming you are, since you say there's a channel number 14-3 being shown. The only way you'll see such a number is if it's coming from a digital converter, which will be sending the signal to the TV on channel 3 or 4 (on the TV's internal tuner).

There are several possibilities. One is that the converter isn't changing channels when you use its remote control. This is often caused by weak batteries, so try a fresh set. If your model of converter has channel up/down buttons on it (some do, but many require the remote for everything), try changing the channel manually.

If the converter isn't changing channels, you should try rescanning. The channel memory may have gotten cleared or corrupted for some reason. Also be sure the antenna is properly connected. With digital broadcasting, no antenna means no picture, guaranteed.

If everything else seems to be correct and the converter isn't finding any channels, you'll need to replace it. Unless it's still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or you have a replacement plan from the seller, you will need to purchase a new converter. They weren't designed to be serviced.

Sharp TV-Remote not working correctly

You will need to complete a channel scan from the tvs menu. I assume you have basic cable and that your cable company is still providing analog channels for you to be able to pick up any transmission on this telvision with the digital changeover and all.

Remote only advances by one channel.

The button on the remote next to 0 and below 9 has to be depressed to _ _ before you select any 2 digit channels. I had the same problem and accidently figured it out. Hope it helps. TC

No input channels

Universal remote control are normally programmed for basic functions, ie. chennel up down, volume up down, numbers, etc. This is even written in the manual that they do not guarantee that all functionality can be used. Here are your options: 1. Try all the codes that match your TV, there is a slim chance that the other code have the functionality that you need. 2. Buy the original model remote control. 3. If you know of someone that have the same TV, buy a universal remote control with 'learning' function and copy the signal from the original remote control. I have the same problems before. Now I use my Casio wrist remote control to copy the special functions such as A/V so that even if the original remote control is lost, I can still use these functionality

TV changes channel changed before all numbers entered in remote

Possibly you're not hitting the numbers fast enough or there is a problem in the delay circuit in the microprocessor. Stargazer

TV changes channel changed before all numbers entered in remote

Possibly you're not putting the numbers in fast enough. If you are then there maybe a problem with the microprocessor responding too quickly to commands. I've never seen this problem before, but my TV will do the same thing if I don't get the numbers in fast enough. Stargazer
