Scanning dtv channels

When I select dtv input and try to go to the TV icon on the main menu the screen turns blue and will not let me exit or do anything. I have to turn the TV off and then I can return to the TV input and watch DirecTv. Can get to the TV icon from this input. Have some digital channels that I was able to pick up off antennae but now I cannot scan for them. Any help would be appreciated.

    Periodically when I turn on the TV to the DTV input, or switch to that input from another one, the screen remains blue and the OTA signal never displays. I can change the volume but not the channel and the other inputs work fine. My "solution" so far has been to turn off the tv and wait for a bit then try again. I have left the set unplugged for two hours but that failed to improve the situation. My googling leads me to believe there is a problem with the ADC, but the same googling indicates that I shouldn't mess with the ADC settings in the service menu. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    I have the same problem. NTSC works fine, but when I switch to DTV, I get a blue screen. Usually when you have a weak signal or no signal, it will go to black screen and display no signal. Mine doesn't do that, it stays at the blue screen. This happens most of the time now. When I go to the scan mode on the menu, the menu disappears and does not return. Then the TV is hard to turn off and back on.

Go to menu setup and do the full system reset setup option... Then before you scan for channels make sure it is set to cable... This fixed the problem for me.

What's your question? I just bought Finesse tv but it does show any channels its just blue screen only ive tried to do automatic channel preset but nothing happens


The blue screen shows that you do not have a signal coming into the TV. So it sounds like you have the wrong input selected and or no aerial connected. Check the manual look for the inputs menu any cycle through them. My best guess is the DTV (Digital TV) input is not selected or you have it selected but no aerial plugged into receive a signal.

Once you have confirmed this run the automatic channel pre-set again.

DVD screen keeps appearing and can not get back to DTV DVD screen keeps appearing and can not get back to DTV


Do a reset to your TV; and check. If it do not help you, contact any service technician.
There are two types of reset to 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; will be better. 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. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
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.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.
This video shows troubleshooting steps to use when a "No signal" message appears.

I have a blue light and an orange but my tv will not come on


If you are referring to an R15 (the big box in the picture with your post), there should be 3 blue lights on the front of the DVR: one to the far left (power), a big circle in the middle, and one on the right indicating the resolution the DVR is currently trying to send to the TV. The orange light indicates that something is being recorded; either a show or something from DTV like channel listings. The orange light has nothing to do with your TV but may indicate that the DVR is downloading setup information.

As for turning your TV on, when you first get DTV, the DVR remote does not know how to talk to your TV set, only the DVR, so you have to teach the remote to talk to your TV. To do that, turn your TV on with the remote that came with it (or the on/off switch on the TV if you're a dinosaur like me) and change the TV input to whatever input the DVR is attached to - usually HDMI or Component. If you see something (a TV show, a guide, a DirecTV logo, etc.) you're in the right place. Now hit the Menu button on the DTV remote and you'll see a menu on the left that includes "Setup". Use the arrow buttons on the DTV remote to move to Setup, press Select, and then select Program Remote. Follow those instructions carefully, step by step, and you should be all set. (Caveat: I am working from memory so the exact wording might not match and I might have missed a menu level. If so, I apologize.)

TCL Blue Screen "No Media"


I HAVE FOUND THE ANSWER!!!! I just bought an TCL TV last night and was given the wrong remote. Screen was stuck on "no media" screen BUT I noticed that when I turn the tv on and keep pressing the menu button, the menu screen would pop up for a half second before the no media screen popped up again. So I knew it was able to access it. SO, it took a few try's and with no exact method I turned the tv on, waited til I saw the TCL logo and then simultaneously pressed the menu and channel up button repeatedly. It will open the menu for you and allow you to move between the input channels!!!! It WILL take a few tries to catch it but it worked!!! Your welcome!!!!

Cannot change channel on my Dynex DX-L26-10a TV


Try checking the signal strength then run the scan again.
Checking the DTV signal strength
You can check the DTV signal strength to determine if you need to adjust your antenna or digital cable input. The higher the signal strength, the less likely you are to experience picture degradation.To check the DTV signal strength:
1.Press MENU. The on-screen menu opens.

2.Press < or > to highlight Channel, then press v. The Channel menu opens. The DTV signal strength is shown at the bottom of the menu.

3.Press EXIT to close the menu.

My ws-55311 shows blue screen on all inputs except the DTV input


This set has 3 hidden menus accessed with a different 4 digit number code----You need the Mitsubishi remote to enter.

One of them is the Option menu which will allow a hard reset of the TV back to factory original---98% of the time it will restore all inputs--cures all sorts of odd problems.

If you have that remote and want to try it let me know for sure the model number and I will give you a link to the instructions for doing it.
