Loss of programed channels

About every 3 or 4 days I have to rerun the installation to search for the channels because all of a sudden it won't get one of the channels that I have programed in.

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.

Can't program digital channels only has analog option

If your TV does not have a digital tuner, you'll need a digital converter box.
After the digital switch in June, did you have channels then? If so just do a rescan.

Impossible to change channels, turn TV on, Power and Opc blinking

go into programming mode and search for channels   it will do this automatically to find all antennae and all cable channels    if this is hooked up to a receiver box then only channel 3 will be found or used    also most tvs are computerized these days and at times it will need to 'rebooted'     unplug the power and wait 10 seconds and plug it in again    this may have to be done whenever you are locked out from changing channels or using the volume controls

New ariel installed on communal roof, have tried auto store, some channels now missing, samsung 23" LCD TV LE23R8

 you must run "auto program search"/"auto store" again and let the TV find the programs. then put them in order and store. 
If you feel some channels are missing, try to find them manually. The auto store function sometimes skips programmes with less tolerant range, even if they are watchable in a fairly good quality. And search slowly and pay attention and go back if you feel you just skipped something. Good luck and lots of patience!
A new aerial sometimes might mean loss of some channels.

I hope it was helpful

Using an over the air antenna I get all channels but one.

I experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:

Channel 10 analog

Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.

hope this helps u out.

Channels will not change

Do a auto program from the menu. If the set has lost its memory from a power loss or other situation it will loss it memory of what channels you have and unless you put the channel in from the remote it will default to ch 2
