SOURCE: I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV.

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

SOURCE: I have an Emerson TV Model #LC320EM9B about 1

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
Solutions?
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

Why would we have to re program our tv channels?


If you turn the TV off by any other means than using the TV's power button you will lose the saved channels.
I think that this only applies to the first turn off after the channel scan.
In notes at right.

My Toshiba tv keeps jumping from channel to channel on it's own


Hello
Check whether any control buttons on the front panel of the TV is strucked or not. It is best to replace all microswitches of the front panel of your tv. You have to open your tV and detach the control panel printed circuit board, desolder out one microswitch among them for a sample, and go to buy a new one. Replace all the switches at the same time. It won't cost more. They are very cheap to buy. You can bought it from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town. OK.

CODE FOR A REMOTE CONTROL


I am not sure of the model remote but, on the newer TW remotes you would press tv then press and hold set up until the tv light blinks twice. then enter 991 on the number pad and then press power once. then press the channel up button until the tv turns off. as soon as it turns off - press the power button and if it turns on then you have the right code. If it doesn't turn on then press channel down until it turns on. either way, when the tv turns on then press set up again to lock that code in. Hope that helps.
