SOURCE: I want to set the remote to change volume on TV

I am not familiar with the Time Warner remote, but Tivo remotes require pressing "tv power" and the "Tivo" button at the same time to program them.
Maybe you are pressing one a little ahead of the other.

SOURCE: toshiba tv 32kv500b, when tryin

I suspect you are seeing the Main Menu for the source that you are currently using. Press the Source button (TV/AV on the TV itself) and make sure you are on TV source. The menu will have a set of icons if it is set for analog and a vertical list in digital. Select Setup (use the up/down arrows for digital and the left/right for analog - it's the first one in the list) and click OK. Then select Installation (third one in the list) and then press OK. Next select Automatic channel scan (first one again) and press OK. You will see a warning prompt, highlight Yes and click OK to scan for digital channels. When it is done, it will ask if you want to scan for analog channels.

The manual is available here: http://www.toshiba-om.net/LCD/PDF/English/Country_Specific/KV500-32-English-Specific.pdf (direct link to the pdf)

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: I hooked up an indoor antenna to the TV and select

First try moving your antenna around (see the sites listed below for the direction to point the antenna to get a signal). If the antenna has an amplifier, try unplugging that unit. (When an amplifier fails, no signal gets transmitted.) Similarly if you have several TVs sharing one antenna, remove the splitter and directly connect the antenna to this Toshiba to make sure that it isn't causing the problem.

You may be in an area where an iindoor antenna may not work for you. Tall buildings and trees can scatter the signal to the point where a digital tuner can't get enough signal to "read" the data. Again use the results from the sites listed below to check what stations are likely to be received in your area.

Different TVs have different tuner sensitivities. An amplifier may help bring in enough signal to get the channels. (Signal loss is inevitable. However, if the signal is sufficiently poor, an amplifier may give you more noise and won't help.)

There are two sources for a site specific list of channels: Antennaweb.org and tvfool.com . Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the list of channel that you should receive. (It lists two channels from one transmitter in my area.) Tvfool will indicate the channels that you should get with different antennas (indoor, outdoor, amplified signals).

A rare issue can be that the tuner in the TV has failed. The only way to check that is trying the TV with different antennas (or in different areas - one with high signal strength).

I hope this helps.

(ATSC (digital OTA signals) are either enough to read or not. You can't get the fuzzy signal of an edge of range analog signal.)

I have a toshiba 42HL196 tv and i am trying to connect it to an external antenna. I cant find a channel scan option in the setup menu. The menu on my tv is not the same as the toshiba video.


First check the current source. Press the Input button on the TV (second from the left) or on the remote (below 9) until the correct Antenna input (Ant 1) is selected. Make sure that the antenna is connected to Ant 1 (the RF connection closest to the back HDMI ports). You only use Ant 2 if you have a coaxial (RF) cable connection. Then press Menu and then try the Setup menu again. You should be able to access the Installation menu and Terrestrial sub-menu now. Change the Input Configuration for Ant 1 to Antenna before attempting to Program Channels.

If this doesn't work, try resetting the TV to the factory settings. You'll have to access the Menu, go to the Installation sub-menu and then select the System Status and then System Information. Select Factory Defaults and enter the PIN. See the manual for the default PIN if you haven't changed it. Then confirm the reset. The manual is available from the product support page: http://support.toshiba.com/support/modelHome?freeText=2841536 . The direct link to the manual is http://cdgenp01.csd.toshiba.com/content/support/manuals/userguides/su2846615/42hl196_om_e.pdf . See page 29 for the PIN. Then try accessing the Terrestrial menu and scanning for channels.

I hope this helps.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

I have a small elemet tv with a en21645e remote control. My grandson did something to the remote and now I only get the local channels not cable channels although I have cable hookup


Hi there,

The little tyke has most likely pressed the INPUT button on the remote control and switched the TV away from the external input setting required for watching cable TV.

You did not state the model number of the TV and some TVs function differently with regard to the selection of external inputs, but you should be able to return to watching cable by pressing the INPUT button slowly but repeatedly until you can see the picture from the cable channels again. The INPUT button is located in the top right corner of your Element remote.

If an input selection menu appears on screen when you first press the menu button, use the arrow keys to highlight another input, then press ENTER to select it. I can't tell you which will be the correct input as I don't know the model number of the TV and it depends on which type of cable you are using to connect the TV to the cable box. You should try each input in turn until you are able to see the cable channels again. Please make sure the cable box is switched on when doing this!

If you are still having difficulty, please reply to me from within this page with the model number of the TV and the type of cable you are using to connect the cable box to the TV. I will then be able to provide exact instructions for switching your TV back to the cable input.

Hope this helps.

No channel 3, the tv goes from channel 2 to 4, can't use the cable box


Two options...

1. Connect the Cable Box via RCA cables (Yellow/Red/White) or Component cable if you have a HD cable box and select the appropriate input on the TV to view your programs. This will provide the best picture quality as well.

2. Make sure the cable box is on. Using the original TV remote type in the channel 03 and if this tunes to the channel then go to the TV menu and then go to Set up and then select add/erase and select add.

If typing 03 did not tune in channel 3 then using the TV remote select menu then go to set up and then make sure TV / Cable is set to cable then on the cable box press the channel button a couple of times and then select auto program on the tv.

How can I Program this to comcast digital cable.


Most universal remotes work the same. Try this. Just keep in mind when you select your item select cable.
Here you go. This will work with most all universal remote controls. If you don't have the code do the following:
Automatic Programming
With automatic programming, the remote control tests all the codes available on the Code List and assigns the correct code for the selected device. Although this method can be more time-consuming, it eliminates the need to look up codes and enter them manually.

1. Turn off the device with which you want to use the remote control.

2. Press and hold the corresponding button on the remote control
(TV, VCR, SAT, DVD, CAB or AUD) until POWER INDICATOR illuminates. It should take a couple of seconds for the light to remain solid. The remote control is in programming mode.

3. Press and release power button. The POWER INDICATOR flashes once and stays on indicating the unit is in Power Scan mode.

4. Press CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down repeatedly until the device turns on.

5. When the device turns on, press OK to store the code.

Note:
• To exit without storing the code, press BACK.
• T he unit will search for the next code or the previous code if you press
CHANNEL up or CHANNEL down after the device turns on. (go slow you need to press OK when the TV turns on) if you mess up turn TV off and start over.
6. Press any other button. If the device responds, the remote control has been programmed. If the device does not respond, repeat steps 2-5.
