SOURCE: Toshiba 26AV502U Won't Pick Up Channels

Hi albertogiler, I am happy to help, you will need to attach a antenna to the tv to pick up OTA over the air signals, depending on your location you may be able to use a set of rabbit ears, I have provided a link to a site that will explain in depth. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/welcome.aspx
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

SOURCE: no tv signal on my olevia 232-s12

cable or Ant.. ? after the scan if there is no channels found (0 digital, 0 analog) then try with cable or Ant to see if any of them work.. if they still don't pick up any channels and the whole yellow progress line goes across.. then it sounds like the tuner on the tv is bad.. and the tuner is part of the main-board so the whole main-board will have to be exchange or repair.. contact Amergence technology they are a 3rd party repair center that service Olevia TV's and they will be able to give you an idea on the repair cost..

SOURCE: My tv keeps saying to run auto channel scan.

FIRST, you must check ALL antenna connection, and if possible, try another "Known Good" antenna system. If it proves that the antenna system is all OK, then I fear your Tuner, has failed, this is a common event, that I get from time to time at my shop. Usually, it is a straight forward job and the cost would be about $250 - $350, depending exactly what is going on. However it would be best to get a "Quote" first, before proceeding, as this may only be a symptom, of a larger underlying problem, that may indeed cost much more.

How do I run a channel auto scan on a Coby TV?


It will be in the setup menu. I believe with the Coby there is an initial setup screen which will guide you through.

A channel scan is a vital part of utilizing your cable TV service. When a coaxial cable is connected to a TV, sometimes it will not display any channels until you configure the TV for your specific cable connection and scan for available channels. A channel scan can be applied to basically any type of TV or TV/VCR combo, even if you are missing its remote control.

Instructions
    • 1 Bring up the TV's menu. Look for a button on the front panel of your TV/VCR labeled "menu" or "setup." Press it and you should see a menu appear on the screen. Part of the menu should inform you what buttons you can use to navigate through the menu. If not, try using the volume buttons or channel buttons on the front of the TV and see if pressing those allows you to navigate through the menu.
    • 2 Specify channel scan settings. Once you are able to navigate through the TV's menu, look for the "channel scan" "auto-program," or "auto-tune" option. This may be inside one of the TV's sub-menus such as "setup," "channel setup," or the like. The key of this step is to specify your cable settings before running your channel scan. The "tuner mode" option needs to be set to "cable" rather than "air" or "antenna." You may have to specify what cable type to use, this will be set to "std" or "standard" for the vast majority of cable providers. If you are not certain what cable type you use at home, contact the technical support department of your cable provider.
    • 3 Run a channel scan. Once the scan settings have been set properly, run the scan (usually done by pressing a "start," "scan" or "begin" button.) When the scan is complete, check to see if you are getting all of your channels. Contact your cable provider if you are not sure how many channels you are supposed to be getting.

I installed a coby tv in my RV. Auto scan worked great for a year. Today it picks up no channels at all. Everyone else in RV park has 20+ channels. The scan performs everytime, but picks up nothing


If you've tried all positions with antennae, booster switch is on, and are sure you have all settings on TV correct, try running an alternate cable directly from antennae head to back of current plate where your co-ax from antennae is attached. That will tell you if you have a bad cable or connection from antennae to plate inside. Just get a piece long enough to go through door or window to current spot where connected. If that doesn't cure it, then it's a head or booster switch problem. You can even by-pass the booster and go direct to TV to see if any better.
