Re: no hdmi channels
Your main board needs to be serviced.
Most of the time we're successful with those repairs, but I can remember at least one case where the problem must have been in the main processor (it's usually elsewhere) and we weren't able to restore functionality.
Oddly enough, though, I think the component input was working, so ultimately the TV could still be used as an HD receiver...only not through the HDMIs.
Go to our site and search for DP46840, then choose your particular model and read the listing.
There's a very little downside to trying it and, at least statistically, a good chance of getting it to work.
Only guarantee that if we can't make it work there'll be no service charges of any kind.
Before sending the board make sure all HDMI inputs are enabled in the configuration screen :-)

What channel? Do you have a cable box from a provider? If yes, then the HDMI output from the cable box will go to one of the numbered HDMI inputs of the tv. Use your tv remote to select the correct input (source button) and when you find the corresponding numbered HDMI input, your signal should be there. If you are not using a converter box and your signal comes in from your wall to your tv then you must go into the menu settings of the tv and select a channel search. Usually an "automatic search" will do .Click that and allow for all the channels to be scanned. You will be limited to how many channels the tv will allow. If you know the cable signal has channels 1-200 but your tv can only "detect" channels 1-165, then you will be short 35 channels. Only way to to get more is to get a converter box. The only time you should be choosing a channel (3 or 4) to view cable on the tv is if the cable signal is going through a vcr first and then to the tv
If it is the radio you are trying to get make sure you have an antenna that is strong enough and can receive the signal. With a digital tuner it requires a strong enough signal to capture any channels.
The TV reads the PC via the HDMI out from the computer. You must make a direct connection from the PC to the HDMI input on the TV with a proper HDMI cable. Once that is established, you need to be certain what HDMI Channel is represented on the TV, HDMI #1, 2 or 3? Etc. Best you turn on the PC AFTER all connections are made and the TV is in full operation and the channel HDMI 1,2,or 3 etc. are on. Now turn on the PC and see if you get a connection. You may have a picture if you are streaming a video, and NO sound. If so, reset the Audio by clicking on the speaker icon at the lower right of your computer screen, and in the Volume Control Options select the output you wish to use.
It has to be on the right channel. If you are supposed to be on channel 3, 61, 73, 113 (ask the satellite company which one you should be on) then you'll have to change the channel. If you are not supposed to be on a channel you have to find out which input you're supposed to be on (video 1, video 2, video 3, av 1, av 2, av 3, hdmi 1, hdmi 2, input 1, input 2, input 3 for example).
Is it saying no signal or one moment please? No signal is a dead give away; there isn't any. One moment please can be several things. Low signal or cable box isn't active. How do you have your connection from your cable box set up as? Coaxial cable, RCA, HDMI, or component? Also, make sure whatever connection you're using, connect from you cable box out into your TV's in (type of cable you're using) Make sure you're on the correct input. For example. RCA may be video 1 or 2 depending on where you plugged it in. Hdmi -> may be HDMI 1 or 2. Coaxial may be channel 3 or 4 on your tv set. Hope this helps.
