    danman1453,

    Thanks replying.

    The flipping is happening at set intervals, less than 1 sec per channel. It flips through them all and finishes on a blank channel.

    We completely blackened the room too so no other IR sources are interfering. Changed the batteries in remote, that didn't help..

  • claire_lusia Jan 31, 2009

    Thanks for that suggestion, we tried but nothing showed up.

    I should have added that the tv has been working fine until today.

    The model is KP-EF41 (Is that the sort of info you need? I'm hopeless with this kind of thing!)

    Thanks again.

Is the channel flipping always happening at set intervals? Or, just randomly? Try replacing the batteries in the remote. If that doesn't work, start looking for other sources of IR(infrared). In some rare cases, direct sunlight on the TV will get it to do strange things.

    Do you have a cellphone with a camera or digital camera? IR is not visible to the human eye. But, cell cameras and most digital cameras can see it. It shows up as a purple to white light. Turn off the lights again and look for anything flashing around that color while looking though your camera. If you can't see anything, then you know it isnt interference. What is the exact model of your TV?

  • danman1453 Jan 31, 2009

    other than that, I suggest asking someone who specializes in rear projection TV repair. After it cycles though the channels, does it start over? Or does it just stay on the last channel? Have you tried unplugging the TV, leaving it unplugged for 15 mins or so, and trying again?

Block unwatched tv channels


Look in the main menu for programming---most sets have a way to manually skip out or delete channels in the up/down programmed menu.

How do I set my TV channel to 3 without the remote?


Hi John,

If channel 3 is skipping by the unit when pressing the channel button key at the front panel, it might be accidentally deleted on the channel selection. If you don't have a remote control, there's no way to add it on the selection. All you have to do is to re-scan the channel by entering to Set-up Menu. Press the Menu button key repeatedly at the front panel to show the "On Screen Menu". Select " EZ Program" to automatically finds and store the channels available at your area. Once the scan is finished, you can now watch all the channels available including channel 3.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
Kind Regards,
Jdvillanueva

I can't get my dish system to work with this TV. I'm only getting 2 chanels. How do I program new chanels to this TV? I need chanel 60.


It depends on the TV a bit. Which model of Broksonic TV do you have? Do you have the original remote? (remotes.com has replacement remotes for many TVs.) Look at the TV (or the original remote) for a menu or channel add subtract option. (The TV is probably programmed to skip the channels that didn't have a signal in the past so you need to reprogram this.) If the TV is a really simple TV (with just the channel and volume controls on the TV), you'll need the original or a direct substitute remote (or a higher end programmable remote). Most basic universal remotes will control power, channel and volume but not the reprogram channels option (in my experience). If you can program the add/remove channels, press 60 on the remote, wait for the TV to go to that channel and then press the Add Channel button. Alternately, with the satellite receiver on, press the combination to search all channels and program the skip to channels with signal.

I hope this helps.

(I had a really old Emerson TV; when the original remote started to fail, the cheap universal remote didn't handle the channel programming. Fortunately, the original remote would usually still work for that.)

Skips past all channels after 13. CableVision


I don't know the exact step to set it because I don't know you model TV. When you go to menu set channels it should give you the option to choose cable or air. If you pick cable all your channels will be in VHF which is what you want. If you pick air the first 13 channels will be VHF and the rest will be UHF which cable don't work on. After you pick cable then auto program and you should get all your channels.If this helps you and I hope it does give me a vote please.

Could you tell me why the tv insignia channels swich fron 2 to 3 channel, and the tv value is going up and down by itself? Because I"m not able to watch my programs. Can You help with this?


if you have set top box ,go to main menu ,check on restore factory settings ,put in default password 0000 and press ok,restarting the set top box automatically,waiting for some minutes.

restarting starts scanning all channels one by one and put them on their respective location in channel store.

now ,enjoy with all channels.

same process is done with tv if u have't any set top box ,only RF input from ur cable operator.

Program Blocked errors


I was having the same problem with the constant blue screen appearing with different error codes. Here is how I fixed the problem on my Elements 19": I did a channel search. I found there were 68 analog channels and 274 digital channels. On a hunch, I went into Skip Channels and checked off all the digital channels since I have basic cable. Although the tv is HD and did pick up the basic HD channels, I choose to skip those two since I do not have a cable box on that tv and only the basic channels were in HD (about 8). I watched my tv for two hours and blue screen appeared once every 30 minutes, but the next day it did not appear at all.

I concluded that those error messages are because those channels are blocked and we have not checked them off to be skipped. When checking the Skip Channels, as you highlight each channel it will either come in or it will not. You will find the "Blocked Program" errors are coming from channels that do not come in and you will need to skip those channels.

I hope you can understand how I solved my blue screen problem on my Elements tv. Good luck!

Tv will not program in digital signals; only anolog from direct tv box


Any TV hooked up to a cable or satellite box can only "see" one channel...the set-top box (STB) converts the channel you are watching to (usually) Ch. 3 or 4. With cable you can split the input if your TV has 2 RF inputs, with a dish that won't work.

That's why the TV stays on Ch 3 and the STB changes to whatever you want to watch.
