    Auto channel search runs without picking up any signals. Have checked line and antenna with another tv-no problems. Have let the auto search run for up to 40 min without any channels found.

A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]

I don't have cable. After auto scan for local channels, now 2 local stations are no longer working. I have LG 42LE5400. Do I need to upgrade firmware. Thanks Dj


no you do not need to upgrade the firmware, the channel selection is based on the amount of signal strength it gets, older analog systems would select it as long as there was a slight amount of modulation as for digital it goes by a percentage, if you wish to set these channels then go back under the setup and select manually add channels then you can add any one you whish reguardless of signal strength.

Hdlcd19wb series a - How do I get the channels in digital, rather than analog? I can't even click on the "dtv signal" option in the menu. All the channels listed to add or delete are analog.


Put the HDLCD19WB on a channel. Press menu on remote. Select channel on the sceen. Press enter on remote. Select auto channel memory on the screen. Press enter on the remote. Use the right arrow button on the remote to set the signal type to air for antenna or cable. Select automatic search on the screen. Press enter on the remote. Wait for search to finish. Check channels with the channel up and down buttons on the remote.
If you have any digital channels you should have them now.
The dtv signal option in the channel menu is only available when tv is tuned to a digital channel.

I have the box installed and on. Now what do I do to get the local stations on my TV


What box - satellite/cable/digital-to-analog converter? This tv has a digital (ATSC) tuner built in. So if you are looking for OTA channels, use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to find out what direction to point your antenna and what antenna you need. Then connect the antenna's coax cable to your TV. Antennaweb is very conservative and assumes an outdoor antenna. tvfool.com will list several more channels and the different antennas that are needed for various distances between your location and the station transmitters.

If you are sharing one antenna between several tvs or tv and other devices, you may need an amplifier in addition to the splitter. (Unfortunately, these can get damaged by surges as well. I've lost certain channels after a lightning strike turned the amp into a filter for one part of the RF signal spectrum.)

Once you have the antenna connected and pointing in the direction of the desired station, you will need to scan for channels. If this is the first time the tv is set up, you will be prompted for menu language, the input type and then asked if you want the TV to auto-scan for channels. Otherwise, hit Menu, use the left and right arrows to get to the Channels menu option and press the + button in the center of the arrow keys. Next use the up and down arrows to set the incoming signal (if needed) - the item is labeled Cable and is a Yes/No (again press + to select item and to enter the change). Continue down to the Auto-program and let that run. You can add/remove channels from the resulting listing with the Channel Skip/Add option just below Auto-program.

I hope this helps.
