    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.

One walkie talkie has static on every channel


It sounds like your monitor button is stuck and you are hearing the white noise. Try pressing the monitor button on your other radio and see if the noise is the same. If so, your button is stuck. If not...
Sometimes a lot of static can be an indication of a bad or poorly charged battery. To check for this trade batteries with your known good radio and see if it solves the problem.

CP 200 LED shows it is in scan mode, but does not ...


On the CP200 radio the scan feature must be programmed into one of the side buttons of the radio, plus the channels must be select to be in the scan list. Your radio would need to be reprogrammed to scan the channels you want to scan.

Programming requires a RIB (radio interface box), cable, and Motorola proprietary software. Your local Motorola dealer should have a subscription to this software and be able to program the radio to scan.

Best regards.

GRE prs 295 channels locked out


This message usually means that the scanner has been cleared of all programming. Press the MANUAL key repeatedly to review channels. If 000.0000 shows, it means that you need to program the unit.

Need the manual for your scanner? You can download/print it here:

Tuner will not pick up cable box on channel 3, front and rear AV


In order for the TV to work with the cable box by using a piece of coax and tuning the TV to channel 3, you must make sure the TV is in "Cable" mode on the tuner and not "AIR or Antenna" the frequency maps are different between these types of service and channel 3 cable will not be the same as channel 3 on Air or UHF/VHF.

Often there is an auto program feature on TV's that will "scan" for all available channels, and this should select the proper input type.

Hope this helps!

When I turn on the TV the screen has static


Static usually means that the tuner is not working. Chack all of your cable connections first. As a quick test of the tuner itself, remove the cable from the exterior antenna connection and insert a small paper clip. That will act like an antenna and if you scan for channels, something should be seen. If not, then you probably have a bad tuner or have lost the source power for the tuner.

Only receive 2 channels.


Can you punch in the channel numbers directly to go to the channels, but just not tune to them with the Channel Up/Down buttons?
If so then try tapping the favorite button on the remote until the screen shows "favorite mode off". This mode likes to stay [or perhaps turn] on when you scan for channels, but scanning clears everything in the favorite list except for the channel you are on when you start the scan (so it seems), thus leaving only one or two channels showing up. (This happens whenever I re-scan for digitals.)
To pick out favorite channels, go into the channel menu in the tv menu and with "Favorite: Analog" or "Digital" highlighted near the top, hit OK on the remote to toggle favorite status.
