Vizio 32" Channel Scan Issue

Help, I have a Vizio 32" Model # VW32LHDTV40A I purchased it from Dell. The Tv Works fine, But out of the box I did channel scan and had no problems. But everytime I turn off the TV, I have to do channel scan search again in order to change channels. I turn it off and it seems if forgets the setting. I turn it back on and the channel up and down will not work on the remote or tv, Unless I redo the channelscan. I cannot view unless I punch in the actual channel only.
Thanks,Isaac

SOURCE: Vizio VW32L HDTV10A stopped responding with Vizio

Change the batteries in your remote. If your cat was laying on a button it could have drained them.

Here's tip - you can use your camera on your cell phone to see the IR signal coming out of your remote. Point the remote at your cam and press "On" or any button. You should see a bright flash with every key stroke.

SOURCE: Tv won't stop changing channels

You need to isolate the problem.
1) Unplug the set for a few seconds then plug it in.
2) Operate the TV with the control/buttons on the TV. (Channels etc)
If the TV operates correctly then do the following.
3) Try operating with the remote unit. If the problem returns then it's the remote failing.

Sometime remotes can be reset.
Try this;
Step 1- Pull the batteries out of the remote and leave them out until Step 4.
Step 2- Press and release each and every button one at a time on the remote control until every button has been pressed and released at least once!
Step 3- If your remote has slide switches, you must move the switch to each position then repeat the button pushing in Step 2.
(When you're done, be sure to put the slide switch in the correct position to operate the unit the remote came with!)
Step 4- Put the batteries back into the remote, being very careful to install them correctly.
New batteries should be used if you're not sure about the old ones.

Try it again. If the problem is still there then the remote is bad.
Since this is a new TV you should use your warranty to replace any bad parts.

I'm not sure: on the Y-sus board there are 3 small power supplies. ( 3 small transformers standing together. They supply 15 volts each.) One of them supplies the 15 volts for the z-sus board this one might be defective. Replace the Elco's on this one by ordenary elco's (low -ones) in stead of the smd- elco's .

This might solve the problem. On the other hand you should realy measure this one out...

Stuck on one channel


Is it the tv's remote? Change the batteries
are you on a cable box? You need to use the providers channel changer. Tv is made to stay on one channel like channel 3 and the cable box runs the different channels.

MMy Vizio 32" tv only gets 16 channels


If your Vizio TV has a built-in HD converter, 16 channels is what you can expect. If the channels are identified with decimals such as 10.1, 10.2, etc. they are HD. The cable connection you refer to must be connected to an antenna, otherwise you would have a cable box and a monthly bill from some cable company

I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''


do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.
