Question about Acer AL2671W 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Cannot set channels

To Whom it may concern
acer LCD TV...AL2671We cannot lock in channels,I go to menu, settings
then scroll down to scan.(This seems to be the only way to set stations.) Channels are set, but when you turn off it goes back to av etc,scans through dvd, then settles to fuzzy screen with channel setting 1 21 etc. This tv is 3 years old. We think the problem is as simple as just pressing wrong button and disturbing tuning.
Hopefully you can help

    You need special hardware to do it, and some knowledge, I talk about this issue in other treads of this section, read them, that is going to help you, but if you don't have the special hardware you can't solve it. You need a repair centre.

If this is happening on all the channels I think you will need a total reset. If so open menu and check the settings for child lock when you manually tune. An option is to reset the channels once again after the lock is opened. Choose a new channel scan to reset the memory. However if the lock seems to be only on specified channels you can open the settings of the channel and unlock on the menu.

I need code to activate my tv and channels


You probably need to SCAN the channels.
Connect the signal source to the tv. Either cable or Antenna.
Enter the menu mode on the tv. You can do through the remote.
Scroll down to the signal source. Select the signal source you have connected to the back of set.
Scroll to SCAN in the menu.
SCAN in the channels.
Exit menu mode.
You can now watch available channels.

Element Electronics FLX2211B 22 in. LCD TV will reset every time


I have run into the same problem with a different model (32 inch from Circuit City). You may have found that there is almost no support from the co or web. I do not have an official solution but have some work arounds that have done the job for me.
WA#1 = after a channel scan tune to a HD/digital channel before you turn the set off. You need to do this each time for several times, because the set when turned on to a regular cable or analog station will default to skip all channels. After several times the set should remember your channels.
WA#2 = after a channel scan, go to the skip channel section of the menu, and if your remote has the colored buttons on the bottom scroll through the channels using the red and green (up and down on this menu) buttons. This apparently helps the set remember not to skip your scanned channels.
These are not glamorous solutions but appear to trick the TV into not re-setting the skip function for the channels.
Best of luck.

I have a Proview TV that we just bought from Rent A Center and when we connect our cable to the TV it tells us to scan the channels. We did this and still we get a blank blue screen that says No Signal....


Try this as your model is basically the same as mine.

Push Menu on your remote.
Then a small screen comes up.
Using your left right arrows move left to set up.
Scroll down to tuner mode and again using left right arrows, there are 4 setting you can choose. Once the setting you choose is showing then scroll up to Channel Searching and hit OK on your remote. This will scan all the channels Digital and Analog.

Depending on which of the 4 setting you picked on TUNER MODE you may have to do this again in the next mode to see which will get the most channels on your TV.

I hope this is helpful; Ken, Attica, NY

press the menu button in the middle of your remote and scroll over to the middle tab that's labled "TV" and then scroll down to "auto search". click on this option by pressing the right arrow key on your remote so that your T.V. and "re-scan for channels. It might take awile. I took me about 5 minutes but for majority of the time it was stuck on 45% while it was scanning.

Samsung lcd faults


Found this on FixYa and it worked:

I had a similar problem and the way to solve this is to reset the set from the remote. Set TV to standby and press Info, menu, mute then power. The set should turn on with the service menu available scroll down until you select reset press right hand arrow next to enter and then enter. TV will turn off. When switched on it goes into Plug and Play mode to reset the analogue and digital tuner. Allow a full reset then you should be ok.
