TV Tuning on ALBA TV with DVD player

I recently relocated and am now recieving 2 channels clearly. The other 3 channels are not received or at least, I think, may need tuning.

I have no idea where the manual is.

If control, please give me step by step instructions.

Please help.
Thank you.

Re: TV Tuning on ALBA TV with DVD player

Make sure in TV mode, press Menu button, use left arrow key to go to "Program Table" (NOT "install") and press blue button for "APS" (auto program search) This was for the LCD22ADVD but may work for others such as Akura and Beko. No part number on the remote.

My RCA XL100 is hooked up to cable and works perfectly fine. We've had it for ages and the picture is clear, sound is beautiful, and it gets along fine with my universal remote. There's just one...

Some of their very old sets the video input was located on channels in the 90's; Try scrolling down from 99 to 90 to see if you locate the video input; this is just the way they did things in the older sets.

Before you rate this solution let me know what you find first.

Hi i have an alba tv , im trying to connect a dvd player. I have connected the scart leads etc.I can not get onto the av channel so i can watch a dvd. Please help


Firstly, please make sure you have connected the SCART cable correctly. This should be connected to a SCART OUT socket on the DVD player to one of the SCART IN or EXT sockets on the rear of the TV.

If you have correctly connected the SCART cable the TV should automatically switch to the AV channel when you switch the DVD player power on or insert a disc.

Switch your TV on, then switch the DVD player off and then on again. If the TV does not change to the AV channel you may have the SCART cable connected incorrectly.

Not all TVs automatically switch to the AV channel when the AV device is switched on. On some TVs the AV input is on channel 0 or 99. On other TVs the AV input is not assigned to a specific channel. On these TVs you need to look for a button marked "AV", "INPUT" or "SOURCE" - either on the TV remote or on the buttons on the front of the TV. The easiest way to do this is to insert a disk into the DVD player and start it playing. Then press the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" button (whichever one you have) repeatedly until you find the signal from the DVD player.

Please check your connections and try using the "AV" "INPUT" or "SOURCE" buttons. If you are still unable to watch your DVD player, please post back with the following information:

1. Model number of the Bush TV
2. Brand and model number of the DVD player
3. If you are using any remote other than the ones supplied with the TV or DVD player, the brand and model number of the remote.

I will then be able to tell you exactly how it should be connected and which buttons (if any) you need to press to access the AV channel.

Hope this helps. Happy New Year!

Tune in channels

Switch TV on
Press “MENU” on remote until 3 blue arrows appear
Press “VOLUME” keys to tune up or down (shown on blue bar)
When required programme is tuned, input required Channel number (appears on 2 green lines at top) e.g. 02 or 14
Carry on tuning and allocating channel numbers
Select “MENU” to clear or wait until it clears by itself
Channels should now be tuned to allocated numbers

Channel numbers above 13 do not come in. This started after a power failure. All numbers are received on another TV at that site. How do I program the stations that should be received?

Go into the TV's setup screen and set the tuning mode for "cable" or "CATV". It got set back to "air" after the power failure. When set for off-air tuning, only channels 2 through 13 tune properly. Set for cable and rescan channels and you'll be set.

Can't get satallite channels

If you are on Satellite then it only works off of channel 3 and you will not get any other channel on the tv set. But you will need to turn your sat box remote to change channels.

Vason 10.4 inch portable tv tuning problem

I returned my original TV/DVD to the suppliers who then sent me a new one.
I experienced exactly the same tuning problem with the new TV.
The only way I could tune it, was by using the fine tune facility to find and store the missing stations. This took a lot of time and continuous button pushing, so patience is essential.
Once found and stored, the previously missing channels are perfect.
It would appear that the DVD player doesn't like DVD- recordings from my home recorder. If they are re-coded they work.
Anything recorded on DVD+ is fine.
In my opinion this is a good unit let down by a couple of niggling faults.
