I have to keep resetting the channels or unchecking the skip option on my Element FLX32FHDH tv. Is there a way where I can set this and not have to keep resetting it?

    I have the same problem too. It seems that my tv doesn't memorize its channels after being turned off overnight. In order to watch the tv, I then have to scan the channels again. Is there any fixes or tips on how to fix this thing. I can't contact Circuit City since i bought it from them

    I have the same problem with my FLX32FHDH lossing its channel lineup after power off.  The "press enter button after power on" solution does NOT work for me unfortunately.  Probably needs a firmware update, but nobody wants to step up and take care of it.  No warrantee since I got it from Circuit City before they closed.  Even Element Electronics wants you to pay for the fix, even though the problem was there from Day 1.

My Element FLX32FHDH seems to lose it's channel list if it is off for 6-8 hours. The channel up and down buttons don't work, and I can't key in a channel. In my case, if I hit "enter" before any other key on the remote, after turning on the set, the channel list menu will appear, with all the missing scanned channels showing. Pick any one, and the set jumps to that channel, and all functions are restored. The stored channels were not lost, but some sort of access flag or variable has been corrupted and the chip won't access the database. Not a fix, but potentially a work-around for you.

Toshiba LCD TV/DVD 15LV505 lost channels. Rescan = fewer channels. Now in Setup, when I press the remote down-it skips the Channel option. What must I fix/change in Settings to get the Channel option?


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.

I took all the check marks off the channel skip and tried to channel scan but the checks keep coming back and it want let me set up any channels


Do a factory reset. There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

My Emerson TV is stuck on number 1 channel how do I get it to go to other channels?


Need to go into the menu look for the channel setup then check the skipped channels make sure channel 1 isn't the only Channel not checked also Look at Your scanned channels in the channel list how many do you have is channel 1 it ? you may need to rescan your channels . If the TV worked OK before but Not now try resetting Your TV , BUT do this last as You will need to reset all the parameters in Your initial setup as well as rescanning channels also the Volume may blast you after reset I always install a set of earphones in the Audio phone jack first . To reset the TV Unplug it from the back of the set wait 30-40 seconds reconnect the plug while holding the Power Button Reset Your Options and Settings then Rescan your channels Don't forget the volume and to unplug earphones Good Luck

I accidentally hit the menu button on my tv and seem to have reset something. It goes from Channel 126 directly to Channel 24 and will not set to channel 3, which is the only one that works with my cable


Hello
You have hit the channel skip function to on. Go to menu and come towards functions where you can see channel skip. Keep it to "off" position. Now it is in "on" position.

Element Electronics FLX2211B 22 in. LCD TV will reset every time


I have run into the same problem with a different model (32 inch from Circuit City). You may have found that there is almost no support from the co or web. I do not have an official solution but have some work arounds that have done the job for me.
WA#1 = after a channel scan tune to a HD/digital channel before you turn the set off. You need to do this each time for several times, because the set when turned on to a regular cable or analog station will default to skip all channels. After several times the set should remember your channels.
WA#2 = after a channel scan, go to the skip channel section of the menu, and if your remote has the colored buttons on the bottom scroll through the channels using the red and green (up and down on this menu) buttons. This apparently helps the set remember not to skip your scanned channels.
These are not glamorous solutions but appear to trick the TV into not re-setting the skip function for the channels.
Best of luck.

Element TV remote control


Our Vizio TV came with the same problem and my husband just figured out how to fix this... Go to menu then TV at the top and go down to skip channel. Uncheck all boxes and this should solve the problem. Hope it helps.
