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.

Hi,

I really need to know the model number of your Insignia TV and which connections you are using between the Dish box and the TV to give you the correct answer. If you are connecting both cable and satellite, I believe it should be set-up as follows:

1. Connect cable feed to TV
2. Run auto channel scan on "cable" setting
3. Connect Dish box to TV and then try changing the "input" selection.

With the Dish box switched on to a channel number you know, try pressing the "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button on your Insignia TV remote repeatedly until you find the satellite feed. Once you have done so, you should be able to change satellite channels using the Dish remote.

If you need further assistance, please post back with the model number of your TV and details of the connections you are using on the back of the TV.

Regards,
BElectric
