First, I hope you got an extended warranty with that. Otherwise it's a disposable T.V. after your warranty is up.NO PARTS are available. Hope it lasts more than a year..if your lucky. You need to change the channels on the direct tv box. Don't scan the t.v. You need the t.v. on channel 3 or video input that the box is connected to. Do you have hdmi cables? How did you hook the box to the T.V.? Did you read your book that came with the T.V. about hooking it up with a cable box??? Same thing as Direct T.V. box. That should show exactly how to connect. More info will help dtermind your problem.

My guess is that your DirecTV box is outputting in a format your television does not recognize. Some models of the DirecTV box have a button on the front of the box for formats (480,720,1080) and you may be able to press that button until the picture comes in clear.

If there is no button:

1: Try an alternative connection tyoe to the TV from the box (if available, like RCA or coax), then switch the TV to that new input. If you get a clear picture with that connection, then in the settings menu for the receiver there should be format settings where you can select which formats to output. one of the selected formats chosen would be causing the problem. Change or remove one of the formats. (. I.e. if 720 is selected, deselect it.) After that switch back to the original connection and input to test.

or 2: The DirecTV box could be connected to a different TV and in the settings menu for the receiver there should be format settings where you can select which formats to output.

Another unlikely possibility is that the HDMI cable or slot on the TV itself is bad. Try switching the cable or try a different slot in the TV if available.

I have my television connected to a sattelite box and it worked when Direct TV left, but now it constantly wants to run a channel search at least once per week, how do I make it stop.

Perform the channel scan. If the screen appears again as it did before, contact the Geek Squad for service... this TV may still be under factory warranty. It needs the Main PCB replaced.

No picture on new Dynex 42" lcd hdtv

Do you have cable or DVD player connected yet? If not, connect your cable to the back of the LCD via Coaxial cable. Next turn channel to 3 or 4 whatever channel you use for cable. Then use auto programming to find all of your cable channels. If no cable connect the DVD outputs to one of the AV 1 or Av2 inputs on the back of your LCD. Power on the DVD player and change your input to which ever AV you connected it to. You should see a blue screen and your DVD Player Icon.

Trying to program the tv with the direct tv remote

Not out of luck, says to use codes from other model of televisions. The way I did it (I have a DirecTV remote as well) is just did a code search till I found which one turned it off. The only thing it won't do is change which input you use, but the menu, volume and channel controls all work fine.
