Changing changes without notice

I just received this TV. the TV changes channels on it's own. kind of like if your sitting on the remote (but of course we're not). does anyone know if this is an easy fix or something I need to take to a shop to fix.

Re: changing changes without notice

The easiest thing to check is if the channel up or down buttons are not pushed in too far forcing the switch to make contact all the time,the other possible reason is some of the cleaning solution or water might have gone down to the buttons and creating a short making the switch active all the time.For this reason you will need the help of a servicer to find you the parts and replace them.Let Us know if you need more information.

I cant figure out how to change the channel to input/video on my broadband tv without a remote

This problem may be more complex than just the selection of a channel to receive video. The first problem is what channel to receive the video. Usually its received on channel 3 or 4. You select that on the video output and match it on the TV. That assumes your recorder is attached via the RF (antenna) connection. If its hooked up via the component connect then you must have a remote to select IN1 or IN2 on the TV to receive video. Remote controls are available on line. Do a search on your TV model and remote control.

Getting a specific channel on the TV without using a remote

Usually if you go into the setup menu, there is an option to allow you to either "scan" for a channel, or "input" a channel. In this case, select "input" and see if the TV will allow you to press the up and down channel buttons and go to a specific channel. If so, when you get to channel 4, press the "add this channel" option (or whatever the menu option says) and you should then be able to go to channel 4 using the buttons on the front without skipping over it.

If you have a menu button on the front of the Tv, you could search for an autoprogram or channel search menu and select that. Otherwise a cheap universal remote might be needed. You also want to make sure it is selected to receive antenna and not cable channels.

Cant change channels

Your in the video mode so you have to change the input. On the original remote, its the button left of the power button. A universal may not work for this. If you need the original remote, Its available at Good Luck

Constant channel box on screen

There should be a button on the remote called display and this should turn off the channel display. If it dosent then have the remote checked and make sure its working in that function. A universalo remote wont work as well in most cases. Good Luck
