The channel buttons on the tv and remote only navigate through the channels programed into the tv. You will need to go into set up and scan for channels or manually add channels you wish to receive.

My viewsonic n2751w tv will not stop channeling down... have to put weight on top to stop


mmm sounds like a sticky channel switch on your tv itself. Spray some special stuff called Contact cleaner spray available at any electrical outlet or hobbyshop - its a little bit expensive but works great to clean motherboards and most other electrical equipment. Spray while the tv is off and press buttons in between sprays

I have had several technicians at my parents house they have a sanyo pdp42xr9da with remote rcj17oa the remote dosent talk to tv we have had the tv for two years it did work but now dosent please suggest...


Most of the fault in this kind of symptoms is the remote control itself.
To confirm it, aim directly the remote control to your cellphone camera and press any button key at the remote control. While pressing the button key, you will be able to see the flash of the infrared indicating that the remote control is working fine. If you can't see the flash of the infrared this is an indication that the remote control is already faulty.


Remote control

If you've confirmed that the remote control is working fine, then the fault came from the infrared receiver(sensor) of your tv. It needs to check by the qualified technician to isolate the problem.
Feel free to ask question of you need further assistance.

Hi, i have 14 "


As I see it, your problem has something to do with your remote. I bet you have pressed the "auto search" button of your remote that's why your TV keeps on searching channels automatically from channel 76 down. Here's what you've got to do:

1. Get your remote control
2. Turn on your TV.
3. Press the "auto search" button to stop your TV from automatically searching channels.
4. In case it works, I'd advise you to look for channels manually using the number buttons or the "previous" or "next" buttons.
5. If it doesn't work still, contact your technician or your service provider about it. They are of great help for you!

I hope it helps. Thanks a lot.

My four year old was messing witht he bottons on the front of my Apex AT2702 television set, and not all it shows is a blue screen with a key symbol in the bottom left hand corner.


Hi
There are 7 buttons with its front panel including power ON/OFF switch button.They are; From left to right:- Video, Menu, Volume(-ve), Volume(+ve), Channel(-ve) and Channel(+ve). If these buttons are not there, it will be difficult to operate this set without a remote control. If you haven't the remote contro with you now, buy one universal remote control. The universal remote control suited for this set is COMCAST ON DEMAND CUSTOM-3 UNIVERSAL REMOTE control. The setup codes are:-
0748, 0765, 0767
OK.

TV is on one channel and will not work with remote or allow me to change channells from side of tv


I've run into this same issue. Although not a complete fix, I was able to program the tv with a basic universal remote. Try using the Goldstar remote codes. While I'm unable to use the channel buttons, I can change channels manually and turn the tv on/off and use the volume button. Again, not a fix, but a work around for now.

Is it going one way - channel 1-2-3-4-5 bottom to up or any way at random. Find out which way and check the channel button on the TV to see if it is stuck.
