On the remote, there will be a menu button. Make sure that the antenna or cable is hooked up to the connector in back which will be a metal circle sticking out the back.

Olevia 232 s12 Accidentally hit factory reset. now no channels in list. how do I get my channels back?

You'll need to reprogram the channels.
Typically this is found under the settings in some sort of auto program section of the menu.
On most newer televisions, the setting is found under a 'Channel' section.
Just select auto program and your source, whether it be an antenna or a cable source.
When the auto program is completed, you'll have your channels back.

There is no local channel,cable only international..i lost my manual,

Here is the procedure for auto tuning. Pleas go through it. Connect the antenna to the rear antena socket marked as &% ohms antena and continue.

If you have already run the Auto Tuner as part of the quick setup earlier in this guide, please

skip ahead to "Channel Summary" to continue setting up your television. In Auto Tuner Setup,

the TV automatically scans through all available channels, memorizing the active ones and

can add or delete channels from the line-up or prevent any unauthorized viewers from watching

any or all 181 channels.

The Channel summary screen will now be displayed with

the channels set to scan marked with an "?". You can delete

channels from the scan by removing the "?". If any channels

were missed during auto tuner setup and you wish to add

them, you may by placing an "?" next to the channel number.

I don't know how to set the tv to receive all of the channels

Enter the "menu" and select auto program. This will allow the set to search for all available channels. There is also a possibility that when you hooked it up the little wire center conductor in the cable might have been bent over when you hooked it up. Check that first.

Hook a VCR to it with a tape playing and make sure the VCR RF switch is set to channel 3. Then do the auto search. If it still does not find channel 3, then your TV has a bad tuning circuit.

Black borders

Check the resolution settings on your cable box, you may have to call your cable provider to find out how to get into the settings menu, there is a stretch function in the settings that should make all the lower channels auto fit your screen, also see if there's a p=size button on your remote control, try pushing that when on the channels that have sidebars.
