Autoscan for channels

I have used this TV with both over the air antenna and cable. Recently I switched back to an antenna. As I was performing an autoscan for channels, it gets up to 29 channels and then stops, the 'power' light blinks green, it makes a funny buzzing noise and then TV shuts off. Moments later it comes back on and acts as though it has not found any channels. I have gone through this cycle about a dozen times with the same results. I called Sony and walked through the same steps. Sony agent told me it may be a broken tuner. Does this sound right? If so, is this something I can replace on my own?

Your lamp most likely needs to be replaced. Not uncommon for this to happen.

Using hdtv antenna (not cable) but get no signal when scanning channels on my Insignia 19 inch tv

You may be using the wrong type of antenna. Apparently there is a lot of mystery and fiction in the advertisement of these antennas. Read this article and see if it doesn't clear up some issues for you.

Why doesn't autoscan doesn't detect digital channels?

make sure cable is selected in set up instead of antennae. Also is it a digital tuner in the TV or did your TV provider recently make it so you can't get their channels without a digital adapter.

Can't autoscan air channels

It is always possible the antenna is the issue but I have a suggestion to at least try.

With the remote direct enter a known channel like 08 enter and see if it goes there. If it does not either the signal or the TV tuner may be the issue---if it does go there you can go into TV menu and should find a add a channel feature--add the ones you want/need manually.

Olevia tv erased all channels accidently

How do you " accidently erased all my chanels " from a tv??
Was the TV connected to a 'cable box' ?
Was the TV conected to 'air waves' or antena input.?
If the TV is attacned to a cable box, temperly remove the cable box INPUT wire, attache an antenna to the IMPUT AND AUTOSCAN WITH THE REMOTE CONTROL
If the TV cannot 'autoscan' in 'air wave' reception...goto menu and set input channel to ch.3 or see if there is a switch in the back that can change to ch.3 or ch.4

You should get all the 'air wave' chanels which will include ch.3 & ch.4
