Re: Saved Channels

I have seen the problem when you plug the set into a cable box,the set should be plug to a source it never looses power,when you turn your cable box off it turns off the outlet in the back too.If not the case the set is loosing the power that keeps the memory alive all the time even when the set is off but you will have motre problems than this one.

What hes saying is to always plug the set directly into a wall recepticle so the set will not lose its memory.

I have a 50" philips magnavox tv that changes channels on it own and turns itself on frequently. What is causing this issue?

Do you live with someone who likes practical jokes; even silly ones?

There are a number of companies that make remotes that can mess with someones TV or other remote devices.
I have a watch, as a gag, that will self program its remote to operate any TV capable of this feature. With this watch, I can change channels, power status and even reset the TV to factory default state.
Next time this happens, look behind you.

We've had our 32" Vizio TV for about 4 months now and up until about 2 weeks ago, everything was working fine and all channels came in. Now, we only get about a quarter of the channels that we used to...

go to menu settings, find add/delete channel or programming or tuning. There should be an option that says "autoprogram" select this option and let the program run thuroughly. It will read and install all available channels. Do make sure tv is set to CATV and that it is NOT set on AIR.

Cant program digital channels.

Nothing. Digital Tuners Broke. I wouldn't be suprised if your TV freezes up momentarily (or for a long time) when you switch over to the Digital Channels.

This TV has 1 tuner for analog channels and 1 tuner for digital channels. You can probably find the Digital Tuner on Ebay and replace it.

TV keeps changing channels

Out of 30 years in the repair field, I have seen this problem maybe 4 times. Once was a stuck button on the keypad of the tv. The other time was a second remote control with a book sitting on it and it would turn the tv on and off when someone would move something on the coffee table, another time was a bad solder connections on the microprocessor on the keypad circuit board and the last time was from a humorous neighbor in an apartment complex who thought he was funny who had an all in one remote control programmed for his neighbor's tv set.

My Vizio plasma TV won't change channels with the remote or side buttons, but if I input a channel number, it will change that way.

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then doing an auto channel search through the menu button. That has solved my problem, at least for the time being.
