How to run channel auto scan

Hi, i just purchased an Insignia flat screen tv and hooked it up to my cable box. The first screen says "please run channel auto scan". How do I do this? Is this something on the TV remote or cable remote?

Okay here's how you do it. Sadly they buried this DEEP in the user guide and I stumbled across it -

Press the TV Menu button then with the < or > arrows scroll to the Channel menu. From there you can select the auto scan.

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:

If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)

To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.

Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

If you press the input button on the upper right side of your remote, it will give you a drop down menu. if you remember which hdmi slot you plugged your cable into, choose that and then your t.v. will work.

In my case I have a cable box that is hooked into the system. I had to turn the cable box off and then when I turned it back on viola! a beautiful picture awaited me.

good luck

If that is showing on your TV, surely your TV is not on the correct input. Check what cables you have connected at the back of your TV. If they are the RCA composite cables (red, yellow, white); your input should either be VIDEO or AV. If you're using a component cable (red, green and blue), input should be COMPONENT. And if you are using an HDMI cable, input should be HDMI. Just look for an INPUT button on your TV remote or SOURCE.

I had to set TV back to HDTV.
Press 'source' then set to HDTV, then exit by pressing 'menu.
That worked for me.

More than likely it's on your TV remote, I would consult my manual it should say how to do it.

Hope this helps

Why will my new tv not pick up any channels when using the auto channel search


It depends on if you have cable or are using an antenna. If you have cable, make sure you have the cable that runs in between them hooked up to the correct spots. If you're using an antenna, you might need to get a TV converter box. A couple of years ago, they stopped making regular TV channels and switched to only digital channels. Most older TVs don't work with digital channels, so you need a box that will convert the picture. You can get one at any place that sells TVs (walmart, amazon, etc)

Trying to hook up the tv to direct tv, don't have remote and cannot get tv on to channel 3


The only work around you have without a remote is sloppy. If you are patient, give it a go: connect the box to the TV (cable/ant input), turn on the direct TV box, using the TV button panel (here comes the sloppy) fumble your way to the auto-program menu, start auto program. When the auto-program is done, you will have just CH 3 memorized, so the CH -/+ button will only go to that channel. Worst part will be figuring out the buttons on the TV... it can be frustrating. It may take a few tries, that's why I call it sloppy. I hope this was useful, best wishes.

Could you tell me why the tv insignia channels swich fron 2 to 3 channel, and the tv value is going up and down by itself? Because I"m not able to watch my programs. Can You help with this?


if you have set top box ,go to main menu ,check on restore factory settings ,put in default password 0000 and press ok,restarting the set top box automatically,waiting for some minutes.

restarting starts scanning all channels one by one and put them on their respective location in channel store.

now ,enjoy with all channels.

same process is done with tv if u have't any set top box ,only RF input from ur cable operator.

Surround sound


Make sure the RCA cable is going from an audio OUT on TV or DirecTV box to a red/white (non-digital) audio IN on surround sound or home theater system.
