50604 tv is trying to program channels how do i stop it ?
My son unplugged our tv and when I plugged it back in it started to program the channels,(tv guide +) the remote broke and we have a universal now. do I need the original remote to stop the programming or can this be done using the buttons onthe tv? I have turned the tv off for 24 hours to let the tv guide + do it's thing but it just keeps going thru the channels.

There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
My TV 40RV525U changing channels, menus itself for few months ( I use antenna). my son tried to stop the channel scrolling by enter weird number into the channel to stop it scrolling such as 555, 777.. later, it turn on off by itself and unable to hold on a channel I
call Toshiba customer service and they ask money $25 for
troubleshooting but I denied since I do not want to waste money and
Now, I found how to fix it myself.
In my case, something was wrong with the signal comes from the button control on the left side of the TV. ======================== What I did ======================== unplug the power cord. Remove back cover. Look into the motherboard ( biggest green at the center).
I disconnect a connector on the motherboard come from the IR board that
receive the wireless signal control ( meaning the remote is disable). I turn on the TV, press on Menu button on the TV side. Menu is still scrolling.
I turn off TV, disconnect power cord and connect the IR connector back to the motherboard. I then disconnect the nearby connector that comes from the side control buttons.
Turn on the TV by remote, press menu button on the remote to check. The menu stays.
I use electric tape to seal off the connector and let it hanging there. Close the TV back panel
I have been watching TV for 3 nights without menus/channels scrolling. NO AVAILABLE red message when watching DVD is no longer existed.
the programming should be automatic...it will seek the channels and put the active stations into memory. when it is done searching it will come back to a channel...this can take up to 30 to do because there are several TV broadcast bands it has to look through now. as a last resort, unplug it (power) wait a few seconds , then plug it back in and start all over (reboot)
First you could try pulling out the plug to the tv from the wall outlet and leave it out for ten minutes or so and then plug it back in and turn the tv back on(if you havn't done that already). this might reset the tv to when you first got it. you might have to adjust anything you have done to the tv. for example; fixing the color, tint, contrast etc.
The next thing you could try is, "auto channel programing". This searches for all tv stations that work.
What's the model on the TV? Can try to look for the manual online. Might be worth a shot to try a capacitive discharge (unplug power, try to turn tv on a couple of times while power is unplugged, plug back in and try again). That may reset it.
Can also try going in the menus and rescanning for channels.
In order to get a picture of what is going on you must understand what is happening. The cable box converts all channels to channel three or four depending on what it was intitially set on. That means that you have only one channel coming into the tv. So you cannot program the set. You just have to put the TV on Channel 3 or 4 and leave that alone. Do not try to program the TV. Then change the channels on the cable box. The hitch is that there are several ways to hook a cable box to your set. One is with the RF connector, which is the screw on one, into either Antenna A or B. and the other is through the AV cables which are yellow, red and white. Yellow for video, red for right audio and white for left audio. If your box is hooked to the AV input then you must use the INPUT button on the tv to select the proper AV input. On that set there are several.
take the batteries out of the remote...now check if you can change channels manually on the big screen.
if so the remote is stuck on one signal that channel u said. get a new remote.
if still same trouble on big screen look hard at the buttons and make sure none are jammed.
also try to get to your setup menu and auto-program the channels it should search everything and then try changing channels.
new stuff alot times plugs come loose, goes back to the factory workers...not pushing them tight
have a tech check that at your home.
