Question about Dynex 32 in. LCD Flat-Panel HDTV
Bought one of these yesterday for bedroom. Took it out of box. Hooked it up directly to cable (no box) and ran the Auto Channel Scan (selected Cable). It shows it found 90+ channels, then shows Please Wait and then goes black. Try to use up/down arrows to change channel and nothing. Nothing is on the channel list either. However if you manually type a channel (like 3 enter) it will then show the station and it will now have that channel on your channel listing. Help, don't want to manually type in every channel. Also, checked parental controls and it is off. Same problem with the autoscan as previously reported (my Dynex has a April manufacture date). After trying "repeatedly" to find a way to get past this road block, last night I finally discoverd that if you wait until the autoscan is almost complete ... then hit your "Exit" key repeatedly, it interupts the scan and WILL keep and display the stored channels. I didn't turn it back on this morning, so I don't know if they held after turning the unit off or not? I will try to contact someone in tech to ask for another fix. Otherwise, I will return it for a replacement. At least it will temporarily allow me to evaluate the picture quality, sound, etc.... to know if I will ask for a refund, replacement or upgrade to something else. I hope this helps?

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:
If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)
To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.
Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.
