After auto channel set up, how do you get to Channel 3 for DVD?

I can't find the manual and don't get a signal from the DVD on Channel 4 and can't figure out how to find channel 3 once the auto is set up.

Try pushing "03" on the remote. You can also edit the channel list manually, and add or delete any station you desire if the autoprogram does not work right. You really want to connect the DVD to the audio/video inputs (Does it even have an output that connects to the tuner?) anyway. Most DVD players, unless they also contain a VHS player, don't work the way you seem to think they do! Even if you have a machine that works through the tuner, you won't get the best picture or stereo sound unless you use your TV's A/V (or "Line In") plugs with a three section cable having three RCA plugs on each end, NOT the screw-on cable TV or antenna type connectors (RG-59) on a SINGLE very stiff coaxial cable. I am as confused by your question as you are! I don't suggest trying to brush your teeth with your TV either. :-)

If using a cable box then you want to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 as the cable box will output to one of those. If no cable box then its possible the TV's tuner is bad or your cable company only transmits in digital form requiring a cable box since this TV only has an analog tuner

Auto presetting channels you wish to know I thinks, if so do the following.

To preset a channel or to change a preset channel, follow the procedure below.

1) Press the POWER button to turn on the TV.

2) Press the MENU button so that the menu display appears

on the TV screen.

3) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "CHANNEL SET".

Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.

4) Press the CH(annel) ? or ? button to point to "AUTO PRESET CH".

Then, press the VOL(ume) ? button.

The tuner scans and memorizes all active channels in your area.

? The TV distinguishes between standard TV channels and cable (CATV)


? When AUTO PRESET CH action is completed, the lowest memorized

channel reappears on the screen.

? When you press the CH(annel) ? or ? button after selecting "AUTO PRESET CH",

the tuner will stop at the memorized channels only.

? The TV may recognize TV channels to be CATV channels by receiving conditions. In this case,

try AUTO PRESET CH action again in the fine receiving conditions.

? When AUTO PRESET CH is activated where there is no TV signal input, "NO TV SIGNALS"
will appear on the display after the completion of channel scanning.

Oh yes clear on what your saying, Channel 4 needs to have signal to it during the scan!! So i hope this VCR or whatever you hooking up to it is set for channel 4 and its on and playing so a signal is marched threw it when your autoscanning. Without a remote this is a priceless fail i would recommend get the remote for your TV and you should be able to navagate the menu fine. You also can put all you stuff on inputs to advoid the tuner all togeather.

Thanks we understadn what your saying and would like to help you in this manner but without a remote that works its will be hard to explain over email but please scan the channels when the thing is playing so it can detect a clear signal.

please do help us out by pressing the accept button for our efforts today!

We have been trying to set the channels in our old picture tube tv. it scans through the channels and once complete, you can only watch the last channel found and once you go to change channels, it...

Be sure your tv is programing with a correct signal. Air or cable channels, and that you do have a line going into the RF connector [antenna signal]. If you have a satellite or cable box your tv will only tune to channel 3. Also, if you are logged into a dvd player or will only have one channel memory. Remove any of the external players [games,dvd,vcr etc.] And retune with auto program!

Converter box

You'll need to keep your TV on channel 3 or 4 depending on what channel you set the converter box. All your channel changing will be done through the converter using its remote control after that. If you change channels on the TV itself and go off channel 3 or 4, the TV will not get a signal and will show you that "no signal" message.
