Since the switch over to digital,I have lost some channels. I am being told that I need to delete the channels from memory. How is this done on a Proscan 26LA30Q. There is no answer in the manual and the manufacturer could not help.

You need to check the connection is tight from the antenna and also on the back of the tv. You may need to try another coaxial cable. Is your antenna powered, meaning does it have a power plug that needs to be plugged in? Is your tv an old crt television? You may need a converter box to be able to view digital channels. A signal booster may help you get more channels.
Your tv or antenna may be defective. You could try your antenna on another tv. If your other tv gets a signal, your tv's tuner could be bad. If the other tv goes not get a signal either your antenna could be bad. I hope this helps narrow down your problem.
To restore missing channels, you need to retune your digital receiver (box or TV).
retuning process runs a scan and finds all the available channels. Your
box may have an Add New Channels option that you can use, but this may
not pick up other changes such as channels being moved to a different
multiplex or removed altogether. How to retune
Switch on your digital box and/or TV.
Press Menu on the remote control.
Select the Setup or Installation option.
Select the 'First time installation' option (sometimes called 'Factory reset', 'Full retune' or 'Default settings').
Press OK if your equipment asks if you want to delete all your channels. Don't worry, this is normal.
If you are prompted for a code, try 0000 or 1234.
Channels will be automatically installed. This may take a few minutes and your equipment may shut down and restart.
After retuning, you will have to redo your Favourites list and other
settings. If you retune a digital TV recorder, you also should reset
I had the same problem a little while after the digital change over, channels were all lost struggled to get the set up menu up but when i did i retune the channels as soon as you turn the tele off there lost again. but it works if you leave the tele on standby. 2 people have told me it's the battery in the tele itself.
Cocast may have only transmitting NTSC Ch 2~13 only for your area, to get more channel you may have to use Comcast cable box, I am in bay area, I can get 2~35 for basic plus service, I can get 2~13 for the most simple service for less money. What is your serivce level you are paying for?
Your TV also anly has NTSC tuner, there is no QAM or ATSC turner.

You may have to call Comcast.
try this first:

• t can't view the Basic channels. Check the connection of the antenna cable

• t want to view satellite channels. Setup your Satellite parabola antenna then connect your satellite receiver to the TV.
• Digital broadcasting is not functioning Check your antenna cable connection. Check if the digital channel selection is correctly
connected to your antenna cable.
Okay most settop direct TV boxes go into a coaxle connector in the back of your TV witch then your Tv would need to be on channel 3 make sure channel 3 is detected by autoscanning for it or undeleting it if its been deleted but make sure the direct tv box is on and running.
If you have them on the scant connectors make sure you on the right input on your TV control there should be a input button press that to scan through to find your direct tv box!
yah you must be misinformed in revers i have the same tv and yes it is digital ready ! why else when you set it up to scan for channels the first time it looks for analog and then digital do you have you manual or what?
