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

Try configuring your antenna input. Menu, Installation, Terrestrial, Input Config select your antenna 1 or 2 and > arrow over to select cable. Next auto program: under Terrestrial, Channel Program...this take some time.

Hi:
The unit is telling you to run autoprogram to program in your channels, make sure also the TV is in cable mode and not TV mode which is for local channels, If you have cable do a autoprogram so the set can program in channels. Auto Scan is the same as autoprogram.

Channels won't move


Go into your setup menu and choose channel program or auto scan. The TV should look for and program active channels into its memory at this time. When it is finsihed you should be able to surf normally. Otherwise you should be able to access the channels directly by entering the channel number on the rmote control.
