Can't tune TV to channel 3 inorder to recieve digital tv

I don't know how it happened but I can no longer get channel 3 so that I can receive the signal for digital tv. It is as if that channel has been deleted, and I can't find where you add and delete channels. I use the remote that came with the TV.

Hi my channel list is empty please assist

You must auto tune the TV so it knows which channels it can receive and which it gets no data from. The menu should have this setting. Make sure your cable box or antenna is hooked up to the TV before you begin the auto tune. Also be aware that an antenna will no longer receive analog broadcasts due to the digital switch in 2009.

I have an Apex AT2402 TV and bought a Magnavox DTV Digital to Analog Converter box , and I only got 3 channels after the channel search. I tried it 2 more times with 2 different antennas I had and it

Digital signals don't come from antenna. They come from the internet, or from a digital satellite receiver.
Then when you get the digital signals, you have to pay the provider for the channels you want to receive. As long as your provider does not know and did not sell you any channel you wont be seeing one.

Why won't hd channels be found when I tune my 42

It depends where you are. Digital has replaced analog signals. If you don't receive channels, ask a friend or neighbours on the situation with their TV. If their hd TV are working properly, then you may have not tuned the TV properly. Have you chacked the Antenna cable? Yes? Then tune it with care and watch what happens. Normally, the TV will show if a signal has been detected. If you have no signal, you need a technician because there are more than one reason this is happening, probably you haven't connected the Antenna cable. Who knows. Again, check the antenna cable, is it lose or wrongly inserted? If you have a small digital TV, connect the antenna to that TV and see if the channels are working. If not, it's probably the cable from the wall socket to the TV (change the cable) or the Antenna cable had been a meal for a rodent on the roof. As I said, who knows?

> I had comcast before but now i don't, don't use a converter box and somehow I was getting cinemax and other channels on the tv
Comcast was providing Cinemax and many other channels as part of your paid services and you will not receive these unless you are a subscriber. There is a good selection of free broadcast channels unless you live outside city areas. If you do, you will then need an external antenna and probably an amplifier to get more distant signals. Auto programming will not find the channels you were receiving from Comcast so there will be only accidental channel duplication; for example, if your former channel 10 was NBC, it may be channel 7 when receiving signal from an antenna.
There are essentially no more 'Analog' stations still broadcasting, they are now all 'Digital.' The abbreviations 'Std' refers to the aspect ratio (H/W) of the picture area and 'Hrc' and 'Irc' the available resolution or how many pixels and lines on the screen.

If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner

TV no longer will find channel 3. The lowest channel number is now Cannel 4. My DTV box works on channel 3 and it no longer works with the TV

If you re using 'autoscan' on your TV to find channel three and it doesn't find it, the converter may not be supplying any signal for it to find.
Try using manual setting of channel three and you will see if there is any signal available. If you don't know how to manually select a channel, try the box with another set.

How can i tune my tv in to recieve freeview channels?? tried everything with no luck. cant even get analogue channels? i know this isnt a problem with the aerial as other tvs work!!

In the US, you are not able to obtain free HD channels without a tuner and an antenna. Some HDTV's have built in tuners and depending on your location to the broadcasts, you may be able to obtain reception. It is possible that one of your TVs has a built in tuner if it is newer and this other TV does not. Analougue channels no longer exist as all channels have been converted to digital broadcast and would need to be converted if trying to view through an analogue TV. Thanks.
