Re: can only get 10 channels

Might try a universal remote, I would try to get through the menu to autoprogram the channels though, might try for a replacement.

My ALBA TV's AV button doesn't work unless its turned on by the mains. I cannot use the standby button on the remote and access different AV channels which is a pain as my mains is hard to reach. Any

Several ideas, replace the batteries in the remote. Point the remote at the base of the TV where the sensor can pick up the command. Get a new universal remote. Good luck.

I have a 32 in insignia and a universal remote was used to try and turn turned the channel once and now its frozen on that channel even the tv remote wont work and the manual buttons on the tv...

Turn your TV off and unplug it for several minutes. Remove the batteries from any remote controls that you use for the TV, press all of their buttons, and install fresh batteries. Reset the TV to factory defaults. The universal remote control should not have caused any damage to the TV. If the problem persists, we recommend that you seek service by calling 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada.

I can't get my tv to go to channel 3. It skips right over it. This tv has no remote

Sometimes you can use the Menu button on the front of your tv and work your way through the settings via the Channel up and down and Volume up and down. You would be looking for an option within the menu that say something to the effect of Scan channels or Search Channels.

If that doesn't work you can pick up a Universal Remote from Wal-mart or Best Buy or any store around that sells electronics for the most part. They range anywhere from $10-$35, at least you don't NEED to spend more than that on one. Then you can access the menu through the Universal Remote, or just punch in the channel you desire to go to.

Hope this helps :)

My remote to the tv is not working i have replaced the batteries and we need to change the tv to channel 2 in order to watch cable tv but we cannot do that what can we do?

First make sure the batteries are in correctly, if the batteries were corroded clean any acid from contacts. If acid leaked from the batteries it may have eaten into the remotes cicuit board. If all that is ok then you could turn on the cable box and with the menu button on the TV do an auto-program and it should lock in on channel two because it should be the only signal it picks up. If you can take your remote to a repair shop they my be able to test or fix it.
You can also try going to and scroll down to TruTech click on it and srcoll down to your model for part number and price.

Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv

Simple Fix

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

Here is the fix:

1. Turn on TV

2. With remote, press the Menu Button

3. Go to Antenna Menu

4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.
