Yes, this mostly happens on most tv and dvd as their switches (called them Tact Switch Push Buttons) and in your tv control panel design is if one of only one button is internally shorting all keys are affected. I suggest to bring it to an electronic service center near you. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a 2008 LG 42LC5DC. The tuner is currently set to receive a cable box feed but I'm using antennae only and want to scan over the air channels. How can I get to the setup menu?

First set the input to TV if your cable box feed didn't come in on the RF cable. Press the Input button on the side of the TV (the second button from the bottom above the Power button). Alternatively press the Input TV button on the top left of the original remote. (You'll have to search through the inputs if you have a universal remote without the feature.) Next press the Menu button on the TV or on the remote, if you have the original remote/universal remote with the matching feature. On the original remote, the Menu button is above the OK button. The Menu button is the third button from the bottom (above the Input and Power buttons). Press the Menu button and then use the Up/Down arrows to navigate to Setup. (If you use the TV buttons, the Ch Up/Down buttons are Up/Down. The volume increase and decrease buttons are Left and Right.) Press the Right arrow key and then Use the Up/Down buttons to select EZ Scan. Press the Right arrow key again. Press the Right arrow key or Enter (on the remote) to launch the scan. You can find the screen shots of the Menu options and the button locations in the manual. The manual is available here: .

I hope this helps.

How to get to menu then adjust it to antena?

First make sure that an antenna is connected the coaxial input on the TV and the input is set to TV. There is an Input button on the top of the TV and on the original remote. On the remote, the Input button is below and slightly to the right of the 0 button. On the top of the TV, the Input button is the one closest to the Power button. You can toggle through the Inputs by pressing the Input button several times or use the up/down arrows and then press the Input button to select the input. (TV should be the top item in the list.)

Next press the Menu button on the remote, above and to the right of the arrow keys. (There is no Menu button on the TV.) Use the left/right arrows to navigate to Setup. Next use the up/down arrows to select CH setup. Press Enter. If you've set a PIN, you'll need to enter it. Use the up/down arrows to select the line Air/Cable, if you need to change the source of your signal. Press Enter. Use the left/right arrows to select your source. Press Enter to save the setting. Press Menu to exit. Return to this CH setup menu and use the up/down arrows to select CH Search and press Enter. If you are using an OTA antenna, use the left/right arrows to select Start and press Enter. Wait for the search to be completed. For cable sources, you'd need to select from Analog Search Start or Digital and Analog Search Start. Press Cancel and then Enter to exit the search.

Crutchfield has the manual for the LC-32D62U available from the product page under the Details tab: . The direct link to the manual is . The Input button use is available on page 30 of the manual. The channel search steps are shown on page 23.

I hope this helps. Please note, if you have an replacement universal remote, you may need to try multiple codes for Sharp TVs to get the Menu button to work. If your replacement remote doesn't have a Menu button or none of the codes work, then you'll need a different remote.

I have a Sharp TV model LC-32SB24U. I cannot access the menu screen because I lost the remote control. Is there another way I can change channels without a remote?

The Sharp LC-32SB24U has menu, input, volume up/down and channel up/down buttons on the top of the TV. When you access the Menu using the buttons on the TV, the Input button is the same as the Enter key. The volume up/down buttons map to the left and right arrows. The channel up/down buttons remain up and down. The Menu button is the closest to the power button (on the right). The volume buttons are the ones on the left.

Make sure that the input is set to TV to change channels. Then you need to program the available channels, access the Menu and navigate to Setup (left/right arrows). Press Input to enter this sub-menu. Then use the Up/Down arrows to select CH Setup. Press Input again to enter. Now you can set the channel source and let the TV scan for channels that have a strong enough OTA signal or are unencrypted cable channels. These are the top two options in the Channel Setup menu. The details are available in the manual which is available here: . For OTA channels, you may need to check the signal strength under the Antenna Setup - Digital option in this Setup menu. OTA Digital signals will not be tuned in if the signal strength is low. It's an all-or-none tuning; amplifiers and external antennas may help. See for details of transmitters and the recommended antenna for your area. (Warning: damaged amplifiers can become filters and block the signal on some channels. Replace the amplifier if it is damaged.)

If you look to replace your original remote with a universal remote, you'll need one that was programmed more than 6 months after the TV was released. That may be 12/2005 based on the manual copyright date. Look for a remote that has a Menu and Input or Source button and check all of the codes to find one that matches all of the features on your original remote. Amazon has an OEM remote for the LC-32SB24U; also has a replacement remote available that has been programmed for the TV. (On, search for the LC32SB24U.)

I hope this helps.

I didnt have a picture so i started hitting buttons. Now I have HDMI Settings with two options showing and can'get rid of it

Have you tried using the "Menu" button or "Input" button on the left-hand side of the set to make a selection/change the current selection?
You may also want to try unplugging the set for at least 30 seconds to see if removing power will clear the frozen screen.
Finally, note that three of the four HDMI inputs have notes associated with them in the manual on page 3, the "Part Names" page. See the notes on the right-hand, bottom of the page; items 3, 4, and 5.

Good morning Cheri
try restarting the tv, just disconnect all electricity for 30-60 sec.

I have Advent LC-15Y26 LCD tv. Does it need a digital - analog converter?

I have one as well and it only tunes in analog (old over the air) t.v. signals. If you want to receive the digital signals, you will need an external tuner/converter box.

Remote's menu and input buttons, and television Input button not responding

well the problem sounds like it could be the IR sensor on the tv or somthing in that circut that is failing or the EPROM chip that controls : Vol up/down , Channel up/down , Power on/off ,Menu , Input selection , ect... is failing, thus this will trigger the protection circut to shut the tv down. this kind of a problem only gets worse and can dammage other components if not repaired soon so it will need testing to determine the exact cause
