Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

We have followed every letter in the manual but have been unable to program channel 2 on our TV.  This channel is a legitimate channel on our other TV that's connected to a cable box. In the Toshiba, the cable is directly connected to Ant1. Am I missing something?  This channel used to work some months ago.  Is it a change from the cable provider's end that has caused this issue? Any help would be much appreciated.

I would try two things here---first with the remote for the set direct enter with the numbers on the remote 02 and enter to see if set will go there and second connect a different set to that connection to see if same issue or not.

SOURCE: Mintek TV and Direct TV remote wont program

Try a code search, the method should be in the manual. If you can't get that to work then it's not possible to use the DirecTV remote.

If that's the case then get a learning remote.

SOURCE: Infrared sensor won't work in a Toshiba TV

The remote wouldn't work on my brand new 46" Toshiba TV. Comcast person said the tv gave off an infrared signal that interferred with the Comcast remote.

Solution was to turn on cable box FIRST, then TV ( now I use All On button, which turns on cable first). If I turn on TV first, the remote wouldn't work consistently. Hope this works for you.

SOURCE: TV says no signal from direct tv box

Yes, something could have gotten changed.

Confirm what input connection the DirecTV receiver is connected to on the back of the TV. Using the remote, check that the TV has that input selected.

I need the code list to program my big button remote. My brand of TV is Insignia


Big Button remote control have pre-programmed with 3 digit codes. There are no code for Insignia tV with it. Codes for this TV are:


0103 0189 0217 0135 0133 0116 0167 0456 0029

Anyway try a code search method. Some times, ti might help you.

Code Search
If after trying "Direct Code Entry" your device does not respond, or if your brand is not listed, try doing a search of the code library for your code by following these steps.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

Sony Bravia Digital TV won't tune Channels 350 and 350, can't manual tune wither as it will only accept 2 digit numbers, even though it tunes 201 ...


These numbers are the LCN (Logical Channel Number) assigned by the broadcasters. It will only be at 350 if it is the same channel from a different transmitter. You need to know the 'channel' of the frequency to manually tune it in. You are talking about the program number not the channel (frequency), a common mistake. i.e ABC in Sydney is transmitted on CH12 (226.5Mhz) and the LCN's for each program are 2,21,22,23,24,201 & 201. If your antenna also picks up the signals from the Kings Cross transmitter ABC is CH30 (543.5Mhz), as these are later in the spectrum they are put in the LCN list starting at 350.

Cannot access channel 73 on TV2


If you are unable to access the TV menu using the buttons on the TV itself it is possible you can with the TV2 remote if it still controls the volume etc. for this TV. If it doe not you will need to find a code for your set in the manual for the receiver or you can go to the following link to find that info as well.http://tech.dishnetwork.com/departmental_content/TechPortal/content/tech/receiver/625.shtml
Assuming you have control of the volume still press the small TV button on the top left of the remote. Now press the menu button and you may be able to access the TV's menu. If so you need to run a channel scan/auto program the TV. You may need to use the buttons on the TV still to maneuver through the menu.
If you are still unable to access the menu you may need to purchase a universal to access the menu.

Unable to find a code for an admiral tv NO.GOJ


Most universal remotes work the same. Try this.
Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

Note:
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.

17 in. trutech tv unable to get channels except 2-13


For channel setup you will need to;
1) Connect the signal source to the back of the set.(Antenna or Cable)
2) Go into the TV Menu and select the same signal source you connected to the back.(Antenna or Cable)
3) Go to the auto program/scan menu and run it. This may take a few minutes.

Now the channels may be watched.
