Slow Channel Changing

HI

I just bought this TV and it takes 2 - 3 seconds in between channel changing, which is REALLY slow, especially for the year 2009.

I have the set plugged directly into my cable cord coming from the wall, (no cable box)

Is there any way I can speed up the channel changing so its not a full 3 second delay in between each channel?

Would a cable box or a Tivo help?

Thanks for any anticipated help!

    This is a new TV, just out of the box.



    I am using basic cable (no premium services or any bells or whistles) and it is going straight from the wall to the TV, without a cable box. (My local community offers free standard cable of 50 channels)



    I think Tivo would help, but I am not sure if Tivo ddoes the tuning in it? Any idea if it would help? Or should I subscribe to Cable and get one of my local cable companies boxes?

    I think its basic cable, not through the air. I get the Cable guide channel which is not transmitted through the air.



    Should I buy a cable box or a Tivo to speed up the channel surfing ya think?.

The question really is whether or not the set has always had this problem. If not, then we need to look at a possible problem with either the power supply or the tuner. Can you update this and indicate whether or not this is a new problem?

As far as using an external device (cable box or Tivo), if the tuning is done with either type of external box, then the TV would be on a fixed channel so yes, the problem woud go away.

    If you are receiving a digital signal over the air through an antenna, then the channel changes will take a few seconds. This is so that enough digital info is received to produce the entire picture. I have seen this using a converter box as well. What used to be instant channel changes takes a few seconds to kick in.

Where is the auto convergence button


Hello
From it menu option, suf through and come to automatic convergence display option and press Ok button on the remote control.

The List & Labels part of the setup lets you edit your channel list and choose or create a

personal six-character label for each channel.

Note: Changing List and Labels can be time consuming. You can change these at a later time by accessing the

Setup menu.

1. Press the left or right arrow to scroll through the available channels and choose the

channel you want to edit.

2. Press the down arrow to highlight the In channel list option. Press the left or right arrow

button to add (the box is checked) or remove (the box is unchecked) the channel from the

list.

3. Press the down arrow to highlight the Channel label option. Press the left or right arrow

button to scroll through the available list of 25 most common labels. The last option in

the list allows you to create your own six-character label for the channel (the first letter of

the label is highlighted).

4. Press the 1 or 2 number button to change the first letter of the label.

5. Press the right arrow to highlight the second letter, then press the 1 or 2 number button

to change the second letter, etc...

6. When you are finished creating your label, press OK. For model D34W20, your TV tunes to

Auto Convergence (for models D40W20 and D52W20 only)

Your TV's picture tubes might have been disturbed during delivery or after you moved the TV,

causing the color in your TV to be out of alignment. The colors adjust by starting auto

convergence.

1. Press OK to begin auto convergence.

2. When the auto convergence is complete, the Red center convergence menu appears. The

cross in the middle of the screen should be yellow. If it is not, use the arrow buttons to

move the red cross to overlap the green cross. Press OK when adjustments are complete.

3. The Blue center convergence menu appears with a cyan cross in the middle of the screen. If

it is not, use the arrow buttons to move the blue cross to overlap the green cross. Press OK

Hey there!

Its really easy to do, but write down any settings before you go changing them..


1. Turn off tv.

(use buttons on tv for this)

2. Push volume down and channel down both at the same time, and hold them for about 10 seconds, or until the tv turns on.

My tv is changing channels on its own and when i turn the tv off, it turns back on...seriously.only way to stop it is to unplug the tv.


Hi,
Though you have not mentioned model and brand of your tv so I can offer a tip only here.
Check in what order tv changes its channels, like if its in forward order, +Preset or +Channel knob would be stuck. If its changing in reverse order, check -Channel knob at front of tv.
Hope this info would be helpful.
Thank you.

Why is there a long delay changing channels on my new Sanyo HDTV?


Are you connected to a cable box from your cable TV service Provider and use this device to select the channel you want to view? I have an HDTV which has the QAM tuning feature. Changing channels was instant until I accepted an offer from Cablevision for a 1 year rent free box and remote combo. The tuning box is a digital & analog Scientific Atlanta Explorer 4200 HD with a card slot for your subscription specs. This bypasses the tuner in your TV and the TV functions as a monitor.

If this is similar to what you have and you don't care about the channel/current program on screen display that appears for several seconds before the channel selection completes, perhaps the cable co. can adjust your box to supress this display if it will speed up the channel selection.

There is another annoying problem with this box. If you have a fraction of a second ac power interruption which might not even cause your computer to reboot, the cable box goes into a reinitialization that could take 5 minutes or longer. In my opinion, it is not worth the $6.50 per month charge we will receive when the year is up.

I have a old rca tv. today when I turned the tv on the stations just keep changing and its a static. What could make that happen?


there are a few possibilities. Only two of which you can correct.

First, blow some pressurized air into the remote control, especially around the channel up and down buttons.

Second, see if the channel changing stops when you remove the remote battery.

third, blow compressed air into the channel up and down buttons on the tv.

If you are still have the problem then you have an internal part to replace and we recommend you use our premium service for that.

Good luck.

I do not see any reference on this problem and I even checked with Sony. If you are on a cable box, I suspect that is the problem.
