It allows you to skip that channel when surfing using the up and down channel buttons. You can still punch the channel in with the number pad to get to it though.

MOST of their older sets are set up where the AV inputs are channels 90-93 ; if you had no signal other than the game the set will skip all those channels out.

If you have a working remote for it direct enter 90-93 one at a time .

Nothing hooked to cable fitting means set will see no signal and skip them out when auto program is engaged.

Lost remote ans ended up deletde ch 3 what can i do,plus thr tv is rolling picture.can this be resolved without a remote


rolling of picture can be controlled by v.hold or vertical hold on your tv. some tv has has this control on the back side. if the control is there & it is not controlling the rolling of picture, that means the control is bad & needs replacement. to get ch 3 back: go to menu & try to find SKIP function, go to ch 3 & put off SKIP.

  • You have to set the channel you want as a favorite first and you can do this from the TV. This is why the channels skip as you press up and down. Sometime or another those were someones favorite channels.
  1. Press "MENU" on the TV until "SET UP" appears on the screen.
  2. Now press ^ or v until "FAVORITE CH" appears in purple.
  3. Now press < or > to display the favorite channel FAVORITE CH menu.
  4. You will use < or > to got between "SET and "CLEAR."
  5. So now go to "SET" and press ^ or v until you get to channel 1.
  6. If you want to delete a channel first then select "CLEAR" and then add the channel you wish.
  • What your doing when you push the channel up and down on the TV buttons is going through the favorite channels. So make one of the favorite channels channel 1 and program your remote.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

I need to manually turn the TV to ch 3 and cannot because it skips it from 4 to 2.


Enter "3" or "03" on the remote and press OK/Enter.  If the channel-skip feature is set on for Channel 3 you cannot get to it using the up/down buttons.  Go to the setup menu to disable the channel-skip for Channel 3 if you want to tune it with up/down buttons.  If you have no remote you should be able to access the menu from buttons on the front of the TV. (They may be inside a door or panel.)

Commercial Skip Feature


When a commercial comes on, you press the "Commercial Skip" button on the remote. Then you see a 30-second countdown timer appear on the screen. If you think there will be more than 30-seconds of commercials, then press the button more (each time you press adds 30 seconds to the on-screen timer -- usually I press it 4 to 5 times). The timer stays counting down on the screen while you change channels during the commercials to see what else is on. When the timer counts down to 0, it is erased from the TV screen and the TV automatically changes you back to the channel it was on when you pressed the commercial skip button. I use this feature a lot! I wish all TV's had it built in. Some universal remotes have a similar (but more awkward feature) where the remote has the timer inside it, and it sends a signal back to the TV when the count is up, but I don't think this would work as well.
