Toshiba 26AV502U Won't Pick Up Channels

I go to Setup, Terrestrial, and I choose Channel Program, which scans for channels on "Auto" mode (which I guess means analog and digital channels?). However, the scan stops at some low percentile, and no channels are found. I have specified the tv to depend on "Antenna" instead of "Cable." I do not have anything external attached to the tv (such as an antenna). Why isn't the Toshiba 26'' picking up any channels??

Hi albertogiler, I am happy to help, you will need to attach a antenna to the tv to pick up OTA over the air signals, depending on your location you may be able to use a set of rabbit ears, I have provided a link to a site that will explain in depth. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

How do i get the channels to scan and pick them up on regular cable line


Hello, without a model number I can only give you a generic outline on how to do this. Go to the "setup" menu, select "channel setup", select "cable mode", then have it "auto program". When it's finished, you should have what cable channels your cable system will allow without a cable box.....thanks
