If you are going straight from the wall to the tv you most likely will not get channels. You will have to come off of the box supplied by your cable provider. If you are coming off of a box currently then you need to make sure you tv is tuned to the right channel and then use the provided remote from your service.

SOURCE: Auto Scan doesn't pick up any channels.

In the main settings, there should be an option for AIR or CATV, air is for non-cable and CATV is for cable tv. This has to be on the correct setting before you autoscan

SOURCE: can't get the channels to enter into the channel list

A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]

SOURCE: no tv signal on my olevia 232-s12

cable or Ant.. ? after the scan if there is no channels found (0 digital, 0 analog) then try with cable or Ant to see if any of them work.. if they still don't pick up any channels and the whole yellow progress line goes across.. then it sounds like the tuner on the tv is bad.. and the tuner is part of the main-board so the whole main-board will have to be exchange or repair.. contact Amergence technology they are a 3rd party repair center that service Olevia TV's and they will be able to give you an idea on the repair cost..

Why does my Westinghouse tv display "auto scan required" when it is on an outdoor digital antenae and there is no picture


Auto scan programs the channels. Auto scan detects the signal strength of the channel and adds the ones that you can watch.

I cannot get the channel scan to recognize channel 3 to be able to watch directv


Make sure the direct TV is turned on and has a channel selected before running the auto scan. The TV won't see channel 3 if there is no signal there.

The tv keeps saying run auto channel scan


I have run the auto scan many times and it never finds any channel. I found that you have to put it on the HDTV, PC, AUDIO channels in order to watch or connect anything on the TV. Try doing that.

17 in. trutech tv unable to get channels except 2-13


For channel setup you will need to;
1) Connect the signal source to the back of the set.(Antenna or Cable)
2) Go into the TV Menu and select the same signal source you connected to the back.(Antenna or Cable)
3) Go to the auto program/scan menu and run it. This may take a few minutes.

Now the channels may be watched.

Tuning Sony KDL 32U3000 for Sky TV


Hi Max,
I an not familiar with Sky TV, I assume it a Cable or Satilite Service.
Here are a few things to check.
  1. Press the INPUT button on the TV remote or on the TV control panel, cycle through all inputs and see if you get a signal.
  2. From the TV's Video Menu, set tuning band to Cable and not to Air or Antenna.
  3. From the Video menu Scan for channels, there should be a Auto Scan option.
Try these and let me know how it goes, I can be of further assistance.
