    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]

Toshiba 32hl67us -- I am attaching an indoor antenna to receive digital local channels, the tv will only search in analog.. Do I need a converter?


You don't need a converter. You would need one if you had an older Analog TV, to enable it to receive Digital over the air channels.
Check the manual to read about the various configuration sub menus. My TV is a Samsung and when I want to scan for channels, I can select AIR, CABLE, or AUTO. After I select AIR it goes on checking the spectrum, looking for DTVair and Air.

Will not find digital tv stations


Hi,

I'll be glad to assist you in locating the digital channels in the TV.
Make sure that the Cable or Antenna Input is connected to the TV. The Cable and Antenna input can be connected to the VHF/UHF Input on the TV. The TV can search for the channels only if the VHF/UHF/CABLE input is connected to the TV. If you're connecting the Cable box or the Satellite Receiver to the Video or HDMI inputs on the TV, then it is not require to auto program the TV. Here, the auto program may be required in the cable box.
To Auto Program the TV, select the Manual Channel Search option from the Menu option and then select the CABLE, AIR or Digital Add-On option depends on the connection. The Digital Add-On option adds any new digital channels that are found to the Channel Scan Database.
This should resolve the issue. Please feel free to get back to us for further assistance.
Thanks for contacting FixYa.

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.

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.

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.
