    I unpluged the tv for over 12 hours and took the batteries out of the remote at the same time and I held down the #1 key on the remote to drain the microprocessor inside the remote. The channel numbers appear on the tv screen, but will not change the channel. I have gone into the menu several times setting up the tv, but nothing changes. We turn on the VCR in order to change the channels. Everything else works fine on the remote and tv except for changing channels.

Stuck on one channel

Is it the tv's remote? Change the batteries
are you on a cable box? You need to use the providers channel changer. Tv is made to stay on one channel like channel 3 and the cable box runs the different channels.

My universal remote went out and somehow the tv-a Sansui-got switched from channel 3. How can I get it back to channel 3 so the converter will work? I tried changing channels manually at the tv but it...

Look in the owner's manual for instructions on having the TV scan channels. Make sure the converter is on before starting the scan. If that doesn't work, you'll have to buy or borrow a universal remote to take care of it (enter 3, 03 or 003 on the remote control). This will happen every time you remove power to the set, whether it is unplugged or you have a power failure, so start saving up for a new remote control.

No picture - 65535 shows on screen

My 42" Dynex just did the same thing. 65535 NO SIGNAL.
The channel label for this said "ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ"

I went to menu... Channels .... Set for Cable TV... Scan Channels.
It rescanned. It took twice as long as normal to scan.
After the scan completed it worked fine except of one thing.

ÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿÿ stuck on the screen.

I shut the TV off, then things returned to normal.

Hope this helps.

This TV is only 6 weeks old.
Cable hook up.
It is -plugged into a brand new UPS power supply.
I used the sleep timer to shut off TV. The 65535 problem occured the next time the TV was powered up.

Cannot watch channels past 13

Your tuner settings must be set on broadcast instead of cable. Below channel 13, they use the same frequencies so it doesn't matter. Find the tuner settings page in the menus and change the cable/air setting.
