Scan for new cable channels

We were given a KONKA KP2762UY. It will scan for cable channels through the menu options but will not pick up or display all of the available ones. Another set works fine with the same cable from the wall. Is there anything extra that we should be doing?

    In the same menu as 'auto search' I found the missing channels with DELETE set to 'YES' so that when the set did an 'auto search' it would not pick up the extras. Once I set them to 'NO' then auto search 'found them'.

How do I run a channel auto scan?


There are many different ways, because each TV manufacturer calls each menu option something different. In your TV menu there should be an option that says Set Up, or Channels, or something similar. Your TV should be, Menu, pan right to Channel, select whether you are using Air (air meaning antenna, picking up channels that are broadcast free over the air) or Cable (only if you use cable with no box). Then the option below should be auto scan. Allow to run completely. Sanyo DP42D24 User Manual Channel

A channel scan is a vital part of utilizing your cable TV service. When a coaxial cable is connected to a TV, sometimes it will not display any channels until you configure the TV for your specific cable connection and scan for available channels. A channel scan can be applied to basically any type of TV or TV/VCR combo, even if you are missing its remote control.

Instructions
    • 1 Bring up the TV's menu. Look for a button on the front panel of your TV/VCR labeled "menu" or "setup." Press it and you should see a menu appear on the screen. Part of the menu should inform you what buttons you can use to navigate through the menu. If not, try using the volume buttons or channel buttons on the front of the TV and see if pressing those allows you to navigate through the menu.
    • 2 Specify channel scan settings. Once you are able to navigate through the TV's menu, look for the "channel scan" "auto-program," or "auto-tune" option. This may be inside one of the TV's sub-menus such as "setup," "channel setup," or the like. The key of this step is to specify your cable settings before running your channel scan. The "tuner mode" option needs to be set to "cable" rather than "air" or "antenna." You may have to specify what cable type to use, this will be set to "std" or "standard" for the vast majority of cable providers. If you are not certain what cable type you use at home, contact the technical support department of your cable provider.
    • 3 Run a channel scan. Once the scan settings have been set properly, run the scan (usually done by pressing a "start," "scan" or "begin" button.) When the scan is complete, check to see if you are getting all of your channels. Contact your cable provider if you are not sure how many channels you are supposed to be getting.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

TUNING MODE UNAVAILABLE MENU OPTION(S)

Analog RF Digital Caption

Digital RF None (all Menu options available)

Video 1 Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan

Memory, Digital Caption

I don't understand the manual! How do you get any channels tuned in on the Technika LCD19-910


on all tvs there is a menu pannel find the menu button on the remote or tv could also be called setup button look for channel option or antena cable option (no on most of the new tvs it is an auto scan) and select that option it will scan throught the channels and auto add the ones that get reception say if ur using an antena

if u are trying to hook up a cable box or sat box through the antena coail wire at the same time u can not have them on so to scan for antena channels turn off the sat recver and cable box scan for channels because the sat box and cable box destors the singnal when on the same time with the antena u will proble have to go back into the main menu where yu selected the channels and manualy add channel 3 or 4 which is what runs the sat/cable box if ur using the antena hookup on the tv

if u are hooking the sat/cable box or dvd player to red gren blue or yellow white red hook up's they will be under a diffrent source chanel which u can usaly get to by hitting the input or source button on the remote
