Have you tried turning your cable box off, given it 3 minutes then turn it back on. We have Time Warner Cable and their remote has the tv and cable buttons at the top right of it and sometimes that helps. Good luck

My function for memorize channels isn't working, how do i troubleshoot this problem

Try looking on your remote and see if you have it in TV mode maybe this will help you get your channels. Also you may need to reset your remote to your TV. look in your manual for the remote for a code for your TV also you may need to check your TV and see if you need to put it back in TV mode after you disconnected the cable. Hope this works for you. Also is your TV able to receive HD. remember that the older TV's will not be able to receive the new signals without the converter.

I have an older Sanyo (approximately 8 years old) and my remote control is damaged (only the buttons/controls on the right side are working, volume turns up but not down, most of the left keys do nothing)....

If you are feeding the signal from your digital converter into the TV antenna input, I would input the converters signal to the TVs video input instead. I am assuming your converter has a video output signal and left & right audio so you will need cables for your audio also. If your converter has only rf output for the TV tuner input it is generally on either channel 3 or 4 and there may be a switch to set this. It is possible that when the TV scanned for channels the converter was off and it did not find a signal on 3 or 4. If you can get the TV to re-scan, be sure the converter is turned on and on an active channel. All your channel selection should be via the converter after that and the TV simply stays on 3 or 4. I would suggest looking in to getting the original remote. Try and see if they have one for your model.

TV locked on channel 3 and have no remote

Thats EXACTLY what happened to our tv!

Ours was originally locked on channel 4 but I left it unplugged overnight and now its oddly stuck on channel 3.

The only thing I can think of to do is try to search for/buy a remote that will work on the tv to bring the menu up again. I don't know how to manually reset it or do anything.

Sanyo DS31590 channel display

I found the solution to this problem . If someone accidentally hits the recall button the display channel will show on the TV screen, To correct this problem hit the Info Button and the display channel will disapear. This works only if you have the standard cable box. I have another TV that uses a dual mode cable box, tried this procedure with analog RCA TV but it didn't work. Don't know if this procedure will work for all display problems, but it worked for me.

Input problem

If you have the original remote, hit video, source, or input button, if it dont have them, then try to change the tv to channel 00 (zero or zerozero), if not then the channels might have to scroll to it, from channel 02 down to make it loop, if it goes to the next highest channel, then you need a remote. It may be set in the menu options to have the video source not saved to your list of saved channels. when you scan the channels, the tv might not look for the A/V source (audio / video), maybe just the RF source. The 3 DVD RCA wires are 1 video and 2 stereo, one stereo for left and one stereo for right. The TV has only 2 , 1 for video and 1 for mono 1 channel sound. This wouldnt have anything to do with why you cant use the DVD player. but try that with the original remote (or a universal remote that is set to your tv set that has either video, input, source or something similar. It is what tells the tv to change from the cable source (RF) and the AV source (the Red White and Yellow plugs, in your TV's case, 2 plugs, one yellow and the other either red or white or something). Dont really know how to explain it much more but hope it helps.

if you have a sky remote or know someone who does you could try programming it by using one of these codes, try them all one at a time

Frozen on a menu screen

Just fixed ours with the same problem. You need to hit the volume buttons on the remote during the time the screen goes black but BEFORE it gives you the "Connect cables" message.It should trick the TV into giving you a blank channel.

Sanyo TVs are made notoriously cheap, and have little glitches like this. Best of luck, space cowboy.

Channel set

If you're on cable you need to make sure your set is in the "cable mode". After this you choose from the menu "auto program" or "auto search" and then hit the button on your remote or on the front panel and your set should go through all cahnnels and remember the ones that have a signal on them.
