This likely has a bad main board.

If it were a Tivo series 3 you might have better luck with it.

I've had my series 2 Tivo for about 2 1/2 years and never found the correct codes for it. I think it works off of a list of TVs manufactures about 3 years ago.

SOURCE: loses channels when shut off. must auto program

Your may be in shop mode, I'm not sure if Vizio's have a service menu. Go to setup and go through the install process again, watch for a demo or shop mode setting. If there isn't a setting then you need a new mainboard

SOURCE: Channel programming.

This can be accomplished using a few steps. All sets allow you to delete channel. The first step is to autoprogram the set to receive all channels. Once that is complete, work your way through the menus to the channel selection portion. You should then have the option of deleting channels. Once you delete all the channels that are not wanted, the channel up/down should cycle through the remaining available channels. If there are channels that you wish to add later, the same menu should allow you to add them back in.

How do I add the HD channels picked up my HD antenna to the master channel list on my Visio TV?


Hello, with the set on, press the menu button, move the cursor down till the "Tuner" section is hi-lighted, click on it. Then the first selection is "Tuner Mode" click on it, the choose "Antenna" click on it. Then move to the "Auto Channel Scan" and click on it, and let it set all your channels. when done, just exit menu and change channels as desired. you can go to page 39 in your manual for these instructions: Tuner Mode
Select Cable or Antenna depending
upon which equipment you have
attached to the DTV / TV Input.
Auto Channel Search
Automatically search for TV channels
that are available in your area. Be
sure to first select the correct tuner
mode above. The TV will search for
analog and digital channels. When the
search is done, press EXIT to begin
watching your programs. thanks, Terry

To see if the problem is with your remote control, go to the receiver and use the channel up/down buttons on the receiver itself. If you can change your channels with the buttons on the receiver, the batteries in your remote control probably need to be changed.

If you can't change channels from the receiver, turn off the receiver. Then unplug it for at least 15 seconds. Plug the receiver back it and turn it on. Again, try changing channels from the receiver itself.

Tune to a channel, and while programming is playing, try tuning to the missing channel by entering the channel number on the remote control keypad to see if channels change. Do not try to select the channel from a channel list, program guide, or favorites list.

If this approach takes you to the correct channel, you need to adjust your favorites list function. Press the "guide" button on your remote. Look for a button on your remote called "fav" or "list." Press it several times and watch for an indication at the top of the guide that you are moving from "all channels" to a particular favorites list.

If you are locked on one channel only, your Channel Lock feature is likely active. Consult your owner's manual to unlock the rest of your channels. See your owner's manual for information on managing favorite channel lists and locking out channels. Enter your password, if necessary.

Block unwatched tv channels


Look in the main menu for programming---most sets have a way to manually skip out or delete channels in the up/down programmed menu.

When running channels it skips channels 5 and 7. Have to manually punch in these channels. help!!


Try to auto program it underneath: First go to menu--then channel setup-- then auto program. It will more than likely be something like that under the menu. if not let me know.

Trying to tune tv but it will not tune in to channel 7s and channel 10s . Have tried auto and manual tune. suggestions?


Good day!!

Example Situation:

If you can get the first thirteen channels, then that proves there are no broken wires or damaged equipment between PVN and your room. Your cable - all 67 channels - has already been activated before you even move into your room. So, if you are only getting channels 2-13, you definitely have a programming problem with your television. We understand that your TV probably worked great last year or at home, but you have to set it up from square one when you move in to Penn again. Many times when you unplug a cable-ready TV, the memory settings are lost, and you have to start over. Therefore, you will need to program your set from the beginning.

If that situation happened to your TV please re-program your set.

Here is a link on how to re-program your Set.Just click the link bellow:

I hope your problem could be solve by this solution.Just add a comment for more query.Thank you!!

Just bought tv and can't figure out how to run channel auto scan??? we did do it but where is this button to fininsh the process???Having major problems programming the tv


the programming should be automatic...it will seek the channels and put the active stations into memory.
when it is done searching it will come back to a channel...this can take up to 30 to do because there are several TV broadcast bands it has to look through now.
as a last resort, unplug it (power) wait a few seconds , then plug it back in and start all over (reboot)

Program Blocked errors


I was having the same problem with the constant blue screen appearing with different error codes. Here is how I fixed the problem on my Elements 19": I did a channel search. I found there were 68 analog channels and 274 digital channels. On a hunch, I went into Skip Channels and checked off all the digital channels since I have basic cable. Although the tv is HD and did pick up the basic HD channels, I choose to skip those two since I do not have a cable box on that tv and only the basic channels were in HD (about 8). I watched my tv for two hours and blue screen appeared once every 30 minutes, but the next day it did not appear at all.

I concluded that those error messages are because those channels are blocked and we have not checked them off to be skipped. When checking the Skip Channels, as you highlight each channel it will either come in or it will not. You will find the "Blocked Program" errors are coming from channels that do not come in and you will need to skip those channels.

I hope you can understand how I solved my blue screen problem on my Elements tv. Good luck!

New ariel installed on communal roof, have tried auto store, some channels now missing, samsung 23" LCD TV LE23R8


 you must run "auto program search"/"auto store" again and let the TV find the programs. then put them in order and store. 
If you feel some channels are missing, try to find them manually. The auto store function sometimes skips programmes with less tolerant range, even if they are watchable in a fairly good quality. And search slowly and pay attention and go back if you feel you just skipped something. Good luck and lots of patience!
A new aerial sometimes might mean loss of some channels.

I hope it was helpful
