The unit is telling you to run autoprogram to program in your channels, make sure also the TV is in cable mode and not TV mode which is for local channels, If you have cable do a autoprogram so the set can program in channels. Auto Scan is the same as autoprogram.

Satellite connection to tv doesnt recognize

At least you know the set does work. I'm also assuming your satellite receiver is working and that all your cables are good.

There are two ways to hook up to the TV: RF (antenna) and the A/V jacks. Maybe the seller was using the RF input (the threaded round connector where you screw on a cable connection, then choose channels with the set's tuner), and you're trying to connect using the A/V jacks (the red, white and yellow RCA jacks). If that's the case you need to switch the TV to those inputs. You may need the original remote to do that if the TV doesn't have a front panel TV/AV button.

The other possibility is you're connecting the satellite receiver to the RF connector and the TV isn't on the right channel (usually channel 3 or 4). If you're using the RF input, have the TV autoprogram and it should find the channel. Most sets can do that from the front panel menu button.

Hope this helps. Thanks for sing Fixya!

Channel setup

You will have to run the Autoprogram menu function from the menu. Here are the steps

Press the MENU button on the remote control.
Use the cursor down to select Installation in the Settings menu.
Use the cursor right to enter the Installation menu.
Select Autoprogram in the Installation menu.
Use the cursor right to enter the Autoprogram menu.
Press the OK button.
Select Cable or Antenna in the Installation mode.
When Antenna is selected, the TV will detect antenna signals and will search for antenna TV (NTSC and ATSC) channels available in your local area.
When Cable is selected, the TV will detect cable company supplied signals and will search for cable TV (NTSC,ATSC, QAM modulated) channels available in your area.
Make sure that registration with your cable TV provider and connection of equipment are completed.
Press the green button “Next” on the remote control.
Press the green button “Start” to start autoprogramming.
The menu screen disappears and the progress of autoprogramming is displayed.The progress bar indicates the number of analog and digital TV channels found. (Also digital channels via CableCARD are being programmed.
When Autoprogramming is complete, a message appears confirming the completion and the TV switches to the first installed TV channel.

Get channel 3 on tv with autoprogramming

When you select channels, the one that comes in the channel number will be green and if you manually select 03 it will probably be red. Hit menu and add channel 03

Doesn't get all cable channels

With the menu set to cable signals, the autoprogram should catch all of the cable channels. The Cable Channel option allows you to use either channel 3 or 4 as the "cable" channel. This is when you have an external box that you use to tune in cable rather than the TV directly. The easiest way here is to autoprogram the TV while playing a VCR tape. That will insure that channel 3 is included.

Does the autoprogram fail?

Hit the menu button, find and enter setup (or channels)
Choose cable or antenna (what you have)...... then make the set "autoprogram". It will add all channels into the tv memory.

Orion tv model 1934 only 3, 4 and aux no pic or sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Turn the set on, hook the cable directly to the TV, take the remote control and press 1 - 1 and if the TV tunes in channel 11 then your set is fine. If the TV was autoprogrammed when hooked to a cable box then the only channels that will be stored in memory are 3, maybe 4 and AUX. To correct this simply go back into the menu and look for the "autoprogram" option and perform the autoprogram while the cable is directly connected to the TV, without a cable box.
