Watching tv and all of a sudden it starts flipping through the channels and won't stop

If you have _no antenna_, make sure the menu (for channels) is set to either ''cable'' or ''satellite''. The TV needs to _know_ there are no ''antenna'' channels to scan for.

If the above doesn't work, try unplugging for a _full_ 24 hours. Then plug in, turn it on, go directly into ''menu'' and do like I stated above.

Note: ''Capacitors'' can ''hold memory'' for a long time. That is why ''unplug for full 24 hrs.''

Sharp 32 inch t.v. freezes at certain channels when scanning. Cannot even turn off the tv. At times we've unplugged it and it reboots but tonight when unplugging it the tv stayed stuck on that channel

Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

TV will not change or show channels

You don't say whether you have had it working at that location before. When you move a TV between houses, it is necessary to retune your channels. Would recommend returning to first time installation.
If you haven't moved it recently there are other reasons why this might happen. 1) There is damage to your aerial caused by weather, 2) A power surge or loss of power to the memory battery on your video board has wiped the frequency information from the memory [the memory battery is like a watch battery that keeps a small amount of power going through the system to it can keep your settings when unplugged], 3) The internal tuner board for your TV has packed in.
If '1' is the case, obviously you need your aerial fixed; if '2' is the case you need to retune again [you'll know if the battery is dead if you have to retune every time you turn on the TV]; if '3' is the case you either need a replacement AV board or someone to solder a replacement tuner board to it.

My television continues to display the phrase "DIGITAL CHANNEL SIGNAL STRENGTH IS LOW" I ahve called the cable company several times and had this checked to see if it was maybe a defective box...

Go to Menu - then channel - then memory channel - let the tv reconfigure the channels. You might need to unplug tv (the light to tv might still be on - press the on button to release the juice). Then plug tv back in. I did this and it worked.

The digital tuner on my Olevia LT37HVS LCD TV freezes sometimes. When it does, you can't change channels, adjust the volume or even shut it off short of unplugging it. All of the other A/V inputs work just...

Tune the tv to a channel that is just blue screen. Then turn the tv off and unplug for at least 30 sec. Then plug the tv back in and turn it on. Then leave the tv on the blank screen channel go into the menu and do auto cable channel search. After the search is complete try all channels. This worked for me. My tv will not scan if the tv is on a channel that comes in. GOOD LUCK these tv's are junk .

My Vizio plasma TV won't change channels with the remote or side buttons, but if I input a channel number, it will change that way.

Try unplugging the TV for a few minutes and then doing an auto channel search through the menu button. That has solved my problem, at least for the time being.

Tv will not change channels

Sounds like an eeprom problem or a microprocessor problem??? Also make sure the tv didnt lose its channel memory by reprogramming the channels feature in the menu. Good Luck
