    Where are you getting the channels you're trying to scan? Are you receiving off-the-air broadcasts? Are you on a cable system? If so, does the set hook directly to the cable or are you using a cable box? Please give a little more information and I should be able to help.

Make sure the TV tuning mode is set for "cable". This will be somewhere in the TV's setup menus; check your manual for all the details. If it's set for "air" as I suspect it is, only the first 13 channels will be found when connected to cable. Channels 14 and up don't get tuned in on "air". Once you've set the TV for cable, rescan channels and you should have 'em all.

Thanks for asking here. If this solution has been what you needed, please take a moment to rate it!

    Ignore that solution...somehow I switched to another window and that bit about tuning mode was meant for another post. The solution might still be what you need, but I won't know for sure until you answer my original question. Wish I knew what I did!

Did you select antenna in the setup menu?
If you did and still can't receive anything you may not be receiving signals strong enough. Read the setup instructions in the manual. link below.

TV is showing no signal. So I did a channel search and it stops and says unable to continue channel search due to error. I even unplugged - left for an hour and still does the same thing. I then hooked...


this could be a fault with the tv actual connector for the cable check the connection on the tv and try again or try a manual search to pick up one channel and then do a full scan also are you doing a scan to add channels to the current list as I would personally try and do a complete scan for all new channels list and see what happens

My samsung ps42c91hdx/xsa tv wont tune in the high def channel 10. the tv can't find it. My sons tvs are picking it up so it cant be the signal.


go to MENU, SETUP,

There you can reset to factory settings. After you set the clock and date, it will ask to scan for all active channels and it will block out the channels it does not find a signal for. Let it complete this task (20 minutes). It asks you for the type of signal but just leave the STD setting for both options before starting the channel finding routine.

When complete, go to channel 10 to see what show is on (low def version). then click down to channel 2 and then push the channel down button several times again to try and find the HD version of that show. (HD channels are high-number channels that are easiest to get to by scrolling below channel 2. Most will have a hyphan in the channel name (e.g. 93-2; 94-1, 94-2, ...).

If your TV goes directly to a 2-digit channel, they you do not have an HD tuner in your set. I doubt that is true so I think you will find what you need.

Let me know if it doesn't work.

Channel scan only finds 1 channel with basic cable setup on LG 42LD520


if you have a cable box just plug the cable box into a scart socket on the tv, switch the tv to the scart input and use the cable remote to change channel?Scanning for channels wont find anything because you are receiving the channels on a cable box. If you are refering to standard or digital tv signals and your not receiving any channels then either you are only scanning analogue tv and therefore wont pick up any digital tv channels, or your ariel is inadequate to receive an acceptable digital reception and will need to be upgraded. please state country you are in and what you are expecting to receive

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric
