A channel scan is a vital part of utilizing your cable TV service. When a coaxial cable is connected to a TV, sometimes it will not display any channels until you configure the TV for your specific cable connection and scan for available channels. A channel scan can be applied to basically any type of TV or TV/VCR combo, even if you are missing its remote control.
Bring up the TV's menu. Look for a button on the front panel of your TV/VCR labeled "menu" or "setup." Press it and you should see a menu appear on the screen. Part of the menu should inform you what buttons you can use to navigate through the menu. If not, try using the volume buttons or channel buttons on the front of the TV and see if pressing those allows you to navigate through the menu.
Specify channel scan settings. Once you are able to navigate through the TV's menu, look for the "channel scan" "auto-program," or "auto-tune" option. This may be inside one of the TV's sub-menus such as "setup," "channel setup," or the like. The key of this step is to specify your cable settings before running your channel scan. The "tuner mode" option needs to be set to "cable" rather than "air" or "antenna." You may have to specify what cable type to use, this will be set to "std" or "standard" for the vast majority of cable providers. If you are not certain what cable type you use at home, contact the technical support department of your cable provider.
Run a channel scan. Once the scan settings have been set properly, run the scan (usually done by pressing a "start," "scan" or "begin" button.) When the scan is complete, check to see if you are getting all of your channels. Contact your cable provider if you are not sure how many channels you are supposed to be getting.
is your lcd in english? what do you mean you ccant find indonesia on the menu? are you looking for the language or the indonesian channel? well if your looking for the language you should go the settings menu and go to language..from there try to find indonesia and enter,then the language will be indonesian..or if your wondering why you cant scan the channels on your lcd..you should try settings menu again and go to the channel set up..find auto scan and click it..then your lcd should be scanning and remembering all the channels thats been scanned,but before you do the scanning make sure that your antenna or your cable provider is connected to your tv..otherwise you wont scan anything
hello,, I suggest that you go into the menu find the auto scan or auto channel setup and allow the TV`s to auto setup, this will find valid channels and tune them in, this should solve you problem, also note, after a power failure you need to rescan or re tune, it will not remember your last setup good luck
I have run into the same problem with a different model (32 inch from Circuit City). You may have found that there is almost no support from the co or web. I do not have an official solution but have some work arounds that have done the job for me. WA#1 = after a channel scan tune to a HD/digital channel before you turn the set off. You need to do this each time for several times, because the set when turned on to a regular cable or analog station will default to skip all channels. After several times the set should remember your channels. WA#2 = after a channel scan, go to the skip channel section of the menu, and if your remote has the colored buttons on the bottom scroll through the channels using the red and green (up and down on this menu) buttons. This apparently helps the set remember not to skip your scanned channels. These are not glamorous solutions but appear to trick the TV into not re-setting the skip function for the channels. Best of luck.
the tv remote has what you call a menu button press it and the menu will come.if you are using a universal remote you wont be able to get any menu most universal remote dont have menu features.if you do not have the originald remote press channel up and down together on the front panel of your tv and you can use the remote to acess what ever you want or the volume up and down button on the front panel of your tv.good luck.
