Sometimes unplugging it from the wall for a few minutes or even overnight can fix weird issues like this.

also, there is a small chance that a new channel scan thru the menu system might refresh the channel memory and clear it up.

this series of TV's are prone to a lot of problems tho, so it will likely soon be time to start shopping around.

What do i need to get regular channels on the tv


How to get regular TV channels?
Your HDTV should have a digital TV Tuner (ATSC) which may need an indoor antenna. Change your TV's input selector to TV or Antenna or Digital (probably one of those three) and scan for channels. If you don't get any channels, then you do need an antenna. Probably another $10.

I have started setup for hd cable. Am connected to hdmi and have picture and sound but am unable to change channels. What do I need to do.


With the HDTV set for an HDMI Input that matches the HDMI Jack that you've connected to the cable HD STB (set-top-box or "converter"), use the cable STB remote to change channels on the STB - not the TV.

You can not change channels of the STB with your TV remote. You may however, be able to program your STB remote to operate your TV. Most will allow you to power the TV on / off; volume up / down / mute; change input (HDMI1 / HDMI2 / ANT / Composite / etc.) and even some of the more complex functions as well. Contact your cable company for more details.

Why am I not able to change channel on Sharp Aquos television?


Try changing channels with the button on the TV to make sure the remote is not bad. Sometimes one or just a few buttons on the remote will quit functioning. It is usually the ones that are used the most. What channel is the TV on? If it is 3 or 4 or one of the aux inputs; it may have been told to stay that way because the channels were changed by a cable box. Go to set up and scan channels into memory. After it has started, do not stop it until it says on the screen that is finished. If you stoop it before it has completed the scan, the TV will keep its original program. (one channel)

Can i get hd channels without an hdmi input. The TV is an HDTV


Sounds fishy to me----almost every provider uses a box that has either HDMI or Component outputs for HD--your set should if HD ready have a Component input for that also--if it only has the HDMI for that you may be out of luck. Check the owner manual to see if one of the Component inputs is HD or not.

I just got a new 26" Westinghouse TV, and the screen says "No Channels in List" and when I search for channels, it is not finding any.


What type of antenna are you using? Or what is your source for accessing channels? (i.e. - are you connecting to a cable tv service box or are you using a receiver ect.) Make sure that your source is connected to the input method that you are currently using on the tv.

There are many input methods to choose from in the settings of the tv. They are generally called antenna 1, antenna 2, cable, aux, hdmi - and a few other names. There should be a button on your remote to change them. The function is usually called "source" or "input". Press that button to change the input method until you get a picture on the tv or pick up some sort of reception. when you have the tv set on the same method of input that your antenna source is connected to, you will get channel reception or some sort of picture. Thats when you use the menu functions to auto find channels for you and let it go through its checking scan to report how many it has picked up.

If its running the scan for channels and not locating any stations, and the picture is either scrambled with the white noise sound tv's make when off channel or if its just single color screen without any sound - then you know the antenna input method you have chosen on the back of the tv is not the current method set in the settings under the menu key.

Most of the time the inputs are labeled on the back. If you look under the cable antenna connection, it should say "cable" somewhere in small print - or "antenna 1 input", antenna 2 ect. Look on the back of the tv. If you are using RCA jacks that are labeled right and left for sound and a third connector for video ect, look for the name of the input method of those three connections on the back of the tv. It should be marked as input - aux 1 ect. Then just change the source chosen in the tv to match it and have it auto program your channels.

My tv will scan and receive channels on a antenna but will not pick up channels on a cable scan with a good cable and a proven good cable signal


if you are not using a cable box and trying to connect cable directly to tv you will get very few channels since they are all digital now and most are scrambled

you will need to hook that cable to the input labled 'QAM' and program tv for digital channels

if you are coming out of a 'cable box' you just need to hook up video cables to an input on tv and change tv to that input - no scanning necessary

hope this helps - if not write back with more details and i will try to help more

good luck!

How can i change the inputs on the tv?


If you have the remote, there should be an input or source button it? Also, check the buttons on the TV for an input/source button. If there isn't one on the TV buttons, try cycling through the channels, some TV's have the inputs change with the channel buttons too, once cycled down through the channels, it will go through the inputs before starting over.

Changing channels


A common issue with this model is the control key board (the key input board that has the buttons on the cabinet of the TV).

This board can cause a lot of issue ,from changing channels by itself,to intermittent shut off, also sources cannot be switched or they switch by themselves.

The less common issues would be the remote eye or the main board.

If you give the full model number and the product code from your TV, I can give you the part numbers.

CHANGE CHANNELS WITH THE CONTROL


Run a channel scan on the DTV and/or TV input depending on what one your not getting channels on. This will solve your issue.

Change the input on the unit to the DTV or TV input. Press the menu button on the remote. Navigate to the tuner DTV or TV tuner setup menu. Go down to auto search using the down arrow. go right when with auto search selected. This may take a few minutes but you should have all the channels back after the scan.
