    when I go into menu I've been selecting scan channels and thats the only option. It seems like it is doing it but it doesn't solve the problem and there aren't any other options?


    There must be another step we're missing.

    my cable is going directly into the back of my apex tv, i can't get any channels above 13 when using my universal remote. I go into menu and it gives me four options. System, Tuner, Timer and one other one and when I hit enter for any of them is simply shows scan off and when I turn scan on it seems like its doing what it needs to but it doesn't solve the problem. It seems like it might be an issue with the universal remote not being able to do some of the functions or is it a parental control issue? It works fine to changes channels in between channels 2-13 so I'm not sure what the issue is? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The reason you can only select channels up to 13 is that the Apex TV is in Antenna Mode (Std) meant for the old aerials on the roof. Since you have cable TV, you would need to go to the MENU, press the channel up/down key and go through all the selections till you find AIR/CABLE or one where you can set it from STD to CABLE. In some instances, you may need to select HRC or IRC depending on your cable provider.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If you could post back the exact model number of the Apex TV, then more specific procedures could be posted. Still, in most Apex TVs, procedures would be:


    • do not use the universal remote;

    • use the front panel buttons;

    • press the MENU until TUNER is highlighted (in red);

    • press either VOLUME UP/DOWN to open the TUNER sub-menu;

    • press either the CHANNEL UP/DOWN to go to ANTENNA;

    • press either VOLUME UP/DOWN to change to CABLE;

    • press the MENU to return to the main menu;

    • press the MENU until TUNER is highlighted (in red);

    • press either VOLUME UP/DOWN to open the TUNER sub-menu;

    • press either the CHANNEL UP/DOWN to go to AUTO PROGRAM;

    • press the VOLUME UP to start scanning the cable channels;

    • press the VOLUME DOWN to end cable channel search;

    • press the MENU till normal display is shown.
    Incidentally, in some models the role of the VOLUME and CHANNEL are reversed.

    Cheers.

This problem typically occurs when the TV is set to the "antenna" position. Check your TV for an antenna/cable switch and change it to the "cable" position. Newer TV's may have an on-screen display menu that you can switch to the "cable" option.

Hi

You can set the channels through "Automatic Tuning" via a "menu" or "program" button on the remote . Once activated, the TV will then scan through the full range of TV frequencies finding all the available channels.

Please revert for any clarifications.

Thanks

Go in to menu.
Make sure that cable is selected instead of ant.
Then Choose Scan channels, or auto program.

I am trying to get channels above 13. I do not


Try bringing up the menu by holding both volume buttons down at the same time (or use menu button on remote if you have it). Go into CH SET using the channel and volume buttons on the front of set (or use the SET + and - and the ENTER buttons on remote). Go to the TV CATV line and move the arrow to CATV. Let menu time out. This will put tv into cable mode. Hope this helps.

Tv always turns on to channel 7


If you are using a cable box, go into the general settings on cable box, use cable remote. Go to "viewer power on", and you can chose what channel you want the tv to turn on to .

Cannot watch channels past 13


Your tuner settings must be set on broadcast instead of cable. Below channel 13, they use the same frequencies so it doesn't matter. Find the tuner settings page in the menus and change the cable/air setting.

Channel selection


What you need to do is take the remote, go into the menu, find channel scan and do a channel scan to find all the available stations available on this system. Make sure the TV set is in the cable mode and not antenna mode or you wont get any stations above channel 13.
