With a G.E. 3 device remote control (model #24991), $6.99 at Target, I pressed the setup & menu buttons together and got the T.V.'s menu.  I selected option #5 (i.e. channel setup); the T.V. scanned the channels available from my cable feed and my unit was became fully functional.

Hello, If you are using this combo with cable and the channels just coming through, you will need to replace the tuner(mounts vertically on the main board and it's located directly behind the cable/antenna connector). If you are trying to use this TV with a set of rabbit ears, the free signal channels turnes digital last year and that is why you get nothing. The tuner as an assembly is still available from a couple of sources: and Union Electronics(

I lost my remote and only need it to set the TV to channel 3 for cable. Is there any way to do this manually?

If you are able to access menu and channel setup, you can go into autoprogram and it will scan all available channels and store them.
Otherwise you can get a cheap universal or even original replacement remote

Can receive only channels 1 thru 27 although connected to cable with 70 channels.

First you need to check if your set is in the cable mode and not antena mode,if the set is in cable make sure is in the standard cable mode and not another type of cable like HRC,if it is change it and try the autoprogram to set the available channels.I hope it helps.
