Is the cable hooked up through an RF Cable (black cable with screw connection) or is it hooked from a box to your television?

If it comes from the RF Cable, go through your TV Menu and choose to Auto-Scan channels.

If it comes from the box, switch through components until you are on the one your cable box feeds into (ex. AV1, S-Video1, HDMI, etc.) and then use the cable box remote to change channels.

Hi gail dahl,
I am happy to help.
From the Video Menu the Tuning Band must be set to Cable and not to AIR or Antenna. You will nee to run Auto Scan for channels from the Menu also.
I have provided a link to download the manual. http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-documents.pl?mdl=KDL40XBR2&LOC=3

Let me know if you need further assistance and please rate this solution. FixYa.

I lost my remote for hitachi CMP401XU and i dont know the remote # so let me know which remote i bye for it


any universal remote would work but hte hitachi remote for that model is expensive i suggest buying a logitec harmony universal remote for around 40 bucks from amazon. you plug it into you computer and just type your model number in it will install all the original options to this remote plus allow extra features such as activities where it can change the channel on your tv and turn your cable box on and let you change volume on your sound system without the hassle of having to use different remotes. and without having to hit different buttons i.e cable button to change channel and tv button for remote it will do it automatically

You would need to look up how to program that remote to your specific tv. I would look up the owners manual if you dont have it for the remote...and follow the instructions for it. However, you will have to directly use the tv to program it to the cable. The universal remote will only change the channels and volume for you. Use your menu button to bring it up, make sure its set to cable and not antenna, and use your channel + and - to navigate through the menu and vol + to select your option

Lost a tv remote in a fire. Bought a universal remote but cannot fine a code to program it.


read the directions at the part where it says manually program, you have to do certian functions then push the channel up and down until tv responds then its programmed, this is actually finding the code as you go, instructions will explain it all because ech universal is just a little diff in its manual process.

Early 2000's AKAI ATV 140 (Tv / Video Combo)


I recently bought a used LCT2060 that had no remote. I figured my comcast cable remote would work without a problem but it didn't. So 3 universal remotes later I found my solution...a radio shack2_bing.gif universal gamer remote. It controls up to 5 components plus your xbox360, playstation and pc. The price on sale was a mere 12.97, not bad if you ask me. Hope this helped. The code that worked for the Akai2_bing.gif was 11676. Take care...

Not being able to get the tv back to channel 3 without remote


Trutech is an oddball brand made for Target by several companies. The chances of finding a functional aftermarket brand is slim.
