TO REMOVE CHANNELS
1. Press the MENU button on the remote control to open the OSD.
2. Press the Navigation (UP/DOWN) buttons to select the Setup menu.
3. Press OK to open the menu.
4. Press the Navigation (UP/DOWN) buttons to select MANUAL SEARCH.
5. Press OK to select.
6. Select the channel you want to delete from the channel list.
7. Press the Navigation (LEFT) toErase Channel.
8. Press EXIT to close the OSD.
It sounds like that the TV was set to skip certain channels. You need to rescan for channels or manually edit the channel list. To manually add channels, press Menu on the TV (or the equivalent key on the Sony remote if you found a code that works). Then use the Up/Down arrows (channel change keys) to select Ch Scan Memory + . Then enter the number of the channel (numerically or up and down arrows). Press + (volume + key) to change the setting from Deleted to Added or vice versa. Since you do not have the original remote, I'm not sure if the Sony remote will match the Reset key of the original remote. Unfortunately without that key being pressed twice, you can't reset the entire channel list and cause the channel search to begin automatically.
The manual for the DS19330 TV is here: http://www.sanyotv.com/DS19330%20%28ESF%29%203764--.pdf . (I'm assuming you haven't recently added cable after only receiving only OTA signals. If you have changed inputs like that, you need to go through the menu and change the source.) Menu > Cable or Air .
Be sure your cable is hooked up good and if you did not auto scan you must do this (auto scan) Found in the menu setup. Use the remote and press menu and it is usually found easily. Highlight the auto scan and start the scan usually by pressing volume +
If you still have the Sanyo remote, you just need to press the INPUT button on the remote. The channel search and some other functions are disabled when the TV is in video/AV/game mode.
If you don't have the Sanyo remote, but you have a Universal remote which you use with the TV, look for a button labelled INPUT or SOURCE on this remote and try pressing it.
If you don't have any remote for this TV or you are using a universal remote which does not have an INPUT or SOURCE button, please reply to me from within this page for further assistance and let me know the brand and model number of any universal remote you are using. There is no option in the menu for doing this, but there a couple of methods which work on some TVs
This may be due to the possiblity that the you are on the wrong input source, If you watch HD Channels then the input source would either be componet or HDMI input. Try changing the input source of the television with the TV's remote until you see the Channels again. IF you are not watching HDTV then the television is on the wrong reception channel for the Direct TV's box. Try channel 4 or 3 or even 73.
If it has a MENU button, press it and use the volume up and down to manipulate the choices, press menu again when you get to channel setup. you want AIR if using off air or Cable for cable. Next screen should say start and press menu again, the channels will start to cycle. If htat doesnt do it, you have a new model than the one I just did tonight. OneForall remotes will probably not have the setup button you need to autoprogram. Best bet is to find a Sanyo made universal remote or other Sanyo remote on Ebay as alot of the buttons are proprietary to manufacturer. Some TV's are useless without their own remote if not on a external tuner (cable SAT or digital)
I got it to scan and finally have all my channels. I just kept entering menu & hitting down arrow and it just started scanning after about 5 or 6 attempts. Very unscientific but it worked. I have ordered a replacement remote.
I have Sanyo TV.
This problem started after I got into a sub menu with choices of volume lock and channel lock.
I accidently set it the volume lock to ON.
I could not go to that menu again.
It seems that this TV has the feature of securing the volume so that the kids can't change it.
Any way to go to the locks sub menu?
