To search for channels (this is called a channel scan, auto program, or auto scan) you need to go into the TV's menu. There should be a menu button or setup button on your TV's remote that will bring the menu up on the screen.

The TV's menu actually has more than one menu in it. Each menu has a different set of options. The first one you'll likely see is the one that has the picture options such as brightness, color, tint, etc. You need to find the one that has the channel setup options. On this screen you'll see what you're looking for.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

The channels on my remote won't work


If all other functions works, except channel buttons, your remote control need cleaning. Check the site liked here for more details about how to clean a remote control. Pull up older posts there. Do a search by entering the brand name to your device by its search box at top right of the display window, because, posts are not arranged in alphabetical order, but by brand name first.

Can't get General Instruments cable box to search


if you have a cable box then you will not need to search for channels. Depending on the cables you are using to connect your TV and cable box, the input channel the TV needs to be on changes. Cycle through your available inputs by using the Input or Video Source button on your remote. Check each one for audio/video. Once you are on the right input, use your CABLE remote to change the channels. DO NOT USE THE TV REMOTE.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

TUNING MODE UNAVAILABLE MENU OPTION(S)

Analog RF Digital Caption

Digital RF None (all Menu options available)

Video 1 Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan

Memory, Digital Caption

Video 2/3 and Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan
HDMI 1/2 Memory, Digital Caption, V-Guide
OK.

Remote is not working and when i use manual button on TVfor volume & channel change, it get changed to Video 1 and Video 2 and next channel. Every time it is happening like this only.


First, the remote:
If you have a cell phone with a camera, aim the remote at the cell phone, so you can see the front of the remote on the cell phone screen. Press a button on the remote, and see if you can see it blinking through the cell phone screen. If you can, you know the remote is working.
Now, the TV:
Have you programmed the channels in? Run the setup function on the TV to auto-search for channels. It should automatically program all the channels it's currently receiving.
Hope that helps. Please report back and perhaps I can help more.

Tuning in my orion tv


Do you just mean to select channels, or do you need to have it search for active channels (programming mode)? If just select channels, then most remotes have channel up & down buttons, in addition to the number pad. To select by numbers, use 2 digits: 04, 06, 08, 10, 22 and so forth.

If the set needs to be placed in the setup or autoprogram mode to search for active channels, then the menu functions must be used.

You may be able to find an online manual on Orion's website. Use your TV model number.
