Can't change channel on Element TV

I am not able to change the channel on the tv by pressing the channel up or down button. I can only change the channel by entering the channel by the number keys.

    My Element tv will not allow me to change channels by channel up or down buttons but I can still enter channel numbers on the remote.  The
    up/down buttons work in other functions of the menu so I know the remote and buttons on the side of the tv are working.  I'm wondering how to 
    do a reset on the tv...the menu reset doesn't do the trick.

SOURCE: My Olevia TV will not change channels using the remote or buttons

First thing, check batteries in remote, next make sure there are no obstructions between your remote and your tv. i would then call olevia tech support and describe your problem. sounds like the remote sensor has failed. usually covered under warranty. check with olevia to see if they have a factory wide problem or issue with remotes. persistance pays off in this case so just keep on top of tech support. hope this helps, john.

SOURCE: my remote control for my polaroid tv wont change channels.

You may be able to program your cable box remote to control your TV in addition to your cable box. When they initially set up your cable box they probably left a pamphlet giving you instructions on how to program your remote. I'm not sure why you can't change the TV channels manually but this may give you a work-around.

I changed my tv from cable to an indoor antenna however I cannot get it back to set up to change it over to antenna or air. Help1


Do you mean the Curtis LED1930A 19" TV? If so, first check that the source is set to TV. Use the Source button on the TV (just below the power button) or the remote (to the right of the 0). You can use the up/down arrow keys to change lines in the Input list. Press Enter to confirm the choice if you are using the remote.

Next press Menu on the TV (the third button from the top) or remote (to the left of the 0). Use the left/right buttons to navigate to the Channel heading (the third item from the left). Use the Source key (on the TV) or press Enter on the remote to enter the menu. Use the up/down arrows to highlight Signal Type. Press Enter (or Source) and then use the left/right arrows to get Air. Press Enter to confirm the setting. Now you should be able to highlight Auto Channel Search and search for your OTA channels.

This is shown in the manual. The manual is available from Amazon here: http://s3.amazonaws.com/szmanuals/d29a408ae8fdecdc0547a724183146ef .

I hope this helps.

Reprogram channels on my Westinghouse tv model sk26h520s for a new location


Make sure that the source is set to TV. If you use the original remote, press the top button between the volume up/down and channel up/down buttons. If you use the buttons on the side of the TV, the Source button is next to the Channel Down button.

Next press Menu. (On the TV, it's the top button. On the remote, it's the top left button next to the arrow keys.) Now navigate down to Channels (use the Channel down on the TV) and press Enter on the remote (or Menu on the TV). Navigate down to Scan Channels and press Enter or Menu (as needed). Choose Antenna or Cable, depending on your source and press Enter again. (Note: the volume buttons on the TV are your left and right arrows in the OSD.) If you get a confirmation notice, select Yes and press Enter.

I hope this helps.

We dont have a manual and we dont know how to change the channel or set the time


To set the clock on the unit, have the TV connected to power but not on. Then press and hold Mem/Clck Adj on the TV (it's the third button from the right in the top row of controls). Use the adjacent Tune/Clk (up/down arrows) to set the clock for 12 or 24 hour time. Then press Mem/Clk Adj again to adjust the hour with the up/down arrows. Press Mem/Clk Adj again and set the minutes. Press Mem/Clk Adj to save the time. The original remote also has these buttons. Mem/Clk Adj is also labeled Set and is the furthest right button on the second to bottom row of the remote. The Tune/Clk buttons are the DN and UP buttons on the left of this row.

Use the Tune/Clk arrows to change the radio channels after pressing the radio button (second from the right on the bottom row). When you press the TV button (first on the right of the bottom row) to watch TV, then you need to use the Channel up/down arrows at the top and bottom of the ring control on the far right of the TV or the Channel + and Channel - buttons on the remote. On the remote, the Channel + button is below the timer button which is below 9 in the keypad section. Enter is below the Channel + button and Channel - is below Enter. Make sure that the TV is in the correct mode for your signal (ATSC for OTA and NTSC for analog cable) by pressing the TV mode button. If you are using a set top box, you will need to change the channels at the box.

Press the TV Menu button and then go down the list to Time to set the time zone for the TV. Press Enter to save the setting. Use the TV Scan button to get a list of available channels before trying to change channels.

The manual for the GPX KL868S is available from GPX at the product page: http://www.gpx.com/store/p/287-KL858S.aspx . The direct link to the English version of the manual is: http://www.gpx.com/owners_manuals/KL858S-IB.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Channel buttons change input


Auto channel search is your friend. Once the tv has been through it and finds active channels, your channel button should work the way you envision.
