    YOU ARE MY HERO - that worked - although it does revert back again, but perhaps if i do it enough it will be okay. (the other issue is the volume thing which i saw someone else had, where the volume goes all the way up with no way to control it). i was ready to dump it and I've been watching the same channel for a month now!!

    when you say standby mode what do you mean?

    Standby is the tv set plugged in but not on. L.E.D sometimes light up.

Toshiba TV

try to open the control and clean it... when you clean it you have to remove the battery, then with some cotton, moist it a bit with alcohol and try to clean all the contacts... after that, let it dry for about 10 mins or more..depends on how wet it is, so dont soak the cotton too much in alcohol.

then put everything back together and i hope it gets fixed..

Sharp LC-37DB5U stuck on one channel. Won't respond to anything. Put in a new motherboard and same problem persists. Sound and picture are fine

I could be wrong, but it sounds like the TV hasn't gone through channel setup. You have to do this in order for the TV to "learn" the channels, assuming you are using cable. If you are using cable run channel search in the setup menu and see if that changes anything. Can you change channels by manually entering in the channel # and hitting enter?

Guide button won't work on my remote

Either have those buttons checked on another unit or have the remote tested (some digital cameras will react with remote pointed at them)

You need to determine if problem is in remote or the unit.

LCD 42 LG TV won't change channels with channel button only with numbers

First check with fresh batteries. that does not resolve it If a universal remote- try a different code. If original remote, press the "TV" button first to make sure it is using the right parameters. If still not resolved, the issue may reside in the IR circuit of the set.

Sony WEGA 42" LCD Rear Projection TV It won't change channels up or down with the remote or the buttons on the television.  It will change channels with the number pad on the remote but not the channel...

Hi, it sounds like your saying that punching in 08, 09 etc. works but channel up button won`t switch from 08 to 09 correct??? If so you need to go into your tv`s menu and "autoprogram" your channels into memory, video-tek

Well there is still a problem with the TV. I found that by unplugging the power cable that the digital channels worked. But, when I turned the TV on today the problem had returned, I had to take out the power cable again!
