Re: No channels

Have you gone through all the usual checks? Do you have it set on the right channel,usualy channel 3. Is the proper input set for where your signal is coming from, air,componet or cable? Have you tried to have the set do an automatic rescan and setting of the channels? Is the set connected to any other box such as a cable box,HD reciever or Tivo? Could any of these be causing this? Try just the set itself without any other box connected to it.Is there any kind of reset button to clear itself and settings. Sometimes they have to be "unplugged" for a minute or two to reset themselves,not just turned off and on.If nothing works call the manufacturer and ask them for help. Somewhere,probably in the back of your manual you'll find a 800 number you can call and ask for more help.There just might be a solution to this that they can tell you how to do.Hope you get it straightened out.

Re: No channels

These things are much like computers. Turn it off and let it clear itself -- wait a minute or two -- and turn it on. It might reboot. Don't pay $1000. I saw a comprable 42 inch plasma on "Tiger Direct" yesterday for $699.

I have a TCL L42M61AZ LCD TV. I find that the "Channel 9" programs in Adelaide, Australia, namely GEM, GO and Channel 9 DTV will not show a visual picture, only play audio. All other programs are...

A firmware update from TCL will fix the problem. Call them and they will send out the firmware and a serial cable (required for update) for free.
I did the update yesterday and it fixed the problem (sound but no picture).
You will need a PC or laptop with a serial port (RS-232).

Some of my channels were lost after I TRIED RESCANNING I I LOST

Check your antenna direction ( or are good sources for signal direction). When I lose channels, it's a digital signal that came in with "bad signal" strength and my external antenna has rotated in the wind. (Oddly another TV in the house doesn't seem to lose the signal as easily even though they share an antenna.)

Also check the weather conditions and time of day. I've gained distant channels when scanning near sunrise or sunset and lost others during thunderstorms.

I hope this helps.

Cannot get ITV or Channel 4 on newly aquired DTV, why is that?

The only thing I can think is happening is for some reason it's ignoring these stations. I suggest you try going to the factory settings for it. Then retune, it might clear the tunner's memory.

There may be an input button on the remote, or on the TV, that allows you to switch from the standard ATSC tuner to the DTV tuner.

Let me know if you can't find it and I will dig for an owner manual. But the above should allow you to switch tuners and input sources.
