Seems you replace the batteries on the front bottom of the unit or the back. If you do change the batteries you may not be able to use it as most is digital nowadays. Unless you have a analog station near by you won't pick anything up.
Connect the TV to external antenna or cable and do the following ot autoscan channels. If it autoscans, and doesn't store any stations in its memory, the memory IC has damaged and should be replaced with same type and number. Wait till autoscan completes and see whether the first channel receve will comes displayed or not. It will take some time to complete. the procedure is:
From Menu Press Vol [+/-] then Channel [UP/DOWN] buttons to find CHANNEL AUTOSCAN.
Press Volume [+/-] button, channels will be scaned automatically. OK
OTA signal? Check your antenna orientation and if there are any tall objects that would interfere with the signal. (See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for signal directions and distance to the station. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative with station information.) Scan for channels with Menu > > (right arrow twice) up or down to AutoScan and hit enter. Use add channels to include stations with the antenna in a new direction.
If you are using the built-in antenna, you may not get digital signals. Try an external antenna (see above sites). Digital signals are enough or zero.
This TV doesn't have a cable tuner so a set top box would be needed for cable stations, check the box directions for the station you need to tune the TV to access the signal.
Make sure you do not have it in Video Mode or Cable mode. Check the menu and see if you have the brightness/contrast/color and see where they are. if they are below 0 then you will have black screen. also, your state might have changed to digital programming so you will only get Canada stations only.
I have the same TV & cannot get into the TV menu to program the cable... it was bought secondhand without the original remote. There are no buttons anywhere on the TV itself to bring up the menu & the universal remote's menu option doesn't do it, either... how do I set the channels?
Is the cable you are connecting working? That is, does it have a cable signal on it? It may be defective, or disconnected at some point (at a splitter in another room, for instance). Try the TV at a cable you know is working to verify the set, then figure out where the problem is with the cable.
