Question about Vizio Televison & Video
Even after a factory reset, a "hard reset" (unplugging the TV and pressing the power button for 30 seconds), and scanning with the TV cable disconnected, an auto scan (with the source set to cable) results in a "scan error" after about 70% complete. A manual scan, with the scan limited to channels 1 to 92, completes successfully, but doesn't find all of the channels that are available. A manual scan that includes channels 93 or higher always results in a scan error. Either auto or manual scanning using an OTA antenna always results in a scan error. And finally, after finding channels using the 1-92 manual scan, the found channels don't display after the TV is turned off and back on.

Seeing as it does not have a digital tuner in it, I would think this would be the problem, you will have to get a box for it.

SOURCE: When I turned the tv
Get your owner's manual and look in the section on setup. This will guide you on how to set this up. Sounds as if after the setting are made, they are not being saved, somehow. Let me know how you make out, and I will continue on assisting if you like. Thanks, will need the model & serial numbers.

Did you ever find a solution to your issue? I just had the same thing happen, and am concerned that the digital tuner is shot.

If you have tried autoprogramming and have found nothing it may be a bad tuner. Is your VCR is hooked up via coax or into a video input? If it is hooked up via video and is working but the coax connection direct isnt it will be a bad TV tuner. Easiest cheapest fix is to use you VCR to change channels or get a Digital Cable Terminal from you cable provider and hook it into video or compnent.

Reset the modem by removing the power cable from the back of the modem for a full 30 seconds and plugging it back in.
This is sometimes referred to as "power cycling" the modem, and is a good way of clearing network timeouts and other problems that can appear on modems that have been running continuously for some time.
Reset the modem by unplugging the power cord from the electrical outlet or surge protector into which it is plugged.
This is a good alternative to removing the power cord from the back of the modem if it is difficult to get to the modem because of its physical location. Count the full 30 seconds and plug the modem back in to complete the reset.
Reset the modem by pressing the reset button the back of the modem.
The button itself is recessed into a hole to prevent accidental resetting, so you will need a pen or some similar thin utensil that can fit inside the hole.
Press the pen into the hole until you feel the button depress and then let go.
This is sometimes called a "hard reset" or "hard reboot," as this will restore the modem to its factory default settings
Hope this helps
