Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
I have a problem storing the channels on an RCA Television.
I purchased the set for my mother about 12 years ago, so of course the manual is nowhere to be found.
I run the auto program function on the set, but it doesn't seem to work/store the channels. Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.
PS: If you could some how get me a copy of a manual would really be great.

OK, I and many others have had a problem using this TV with remotes that are not the original (i.e. universal remotes). I have Comcast cable and the remote they gave me with the cable box will operate most of the functions of the TV, but the volume down botton always brings up the TV setup menu.
I solved this by purchasing the Phillips SRU4208WM/17 remote at Wal-mart and teaching it the functions of the original remote by using the Learning mode.
It works great now. Volume up and down, channel up and down, etc.

if you can get to menu to unlock the channels type in 0000 or 1234 or 9999 or 0001 orif this doesnt work you could take back off tv and remove the little battery that looks like a coin out. becareful, this is high voltage in there.........

You should be watching tv in no time. Email me and let me know how it went I would like to know if I was able to help. email@example.com
1-You didn't say what model tv you have. Is it a HDTV?
2-Are you using an over the air (roof) or set top antenna connected to the tv?
3-Are you getting the no program or weak signal message on all channels?
4-Have you tried first cycling through the source or input button to make sure you are on TV and not on an input. Sometimes if you are on an input and for example the device connected to that input is off you wil get a no signal until you turn the device first but you probably already know that.
5-When you were in the process of scanning for channels assuming you had an over the air antenna connected did you make sure and select the ota option and not cable? if you have an ota antenna and not cable you need to select ota before scanning for channels.
Now assuming you have an ota antenna and you chose ota before scanning or doing a re scan and after the scan you still get the no program or weak signal message that means there is no signal and you may be using the wrong antenna or try moving the antenna in the direction of the television tower if you know where that is or turn in another direction but unless you are using the wrong antena you should get something.
Assuming you received some channels or even if you did not, try to and add channels by hand. Heres how: first you need to know the RF frequency channel or digital channel its transmitting on you just cant input the number of the display channel you want like on a tube at least not initially but you can after you first input the rf or digital channel number first and saving it on your tv then you can just input the display channel number you are used to. Heres how to manually force the tv to enter a channel without a scan or re scan and possibly loosing other channels with a rescan.
Go here http://www.rabbitears.info/search.php and go to state search choose your state from drop down list and click search now do you see the list of stations? on the left you have the display channel (thats the number you usually entered on a regular tv) and next to that is the digital channel (thats the number you need to enter on an hdtv or dtv initially to force the tv to accept the channel because if you just enter the number your used to initially the tv wont find it) the tv should now automatically redirect you to the channel you are normally used to and any digital equivalent and any sub channels for that channel. Now save it into memory in your tv menu channel list. do this for every channel for your area if you were unable to pick up any stations during a scan.

This worked for my 20" Philips Magnavox 20MT4405/17 TV, it might work for you as well. DISCLAIMER: This is just a solution that I pieced together information from various internet sources, as I could not find a free copy of the service manual to verify this. Furthermore, I am not a technician of any sort.
Enter your TV's service menu by pressing this sequence of buttons on your remote while the TV is on:
Use the arrows on your remote to scroll down to "Options", push the right arrow to enter options.
Change the 7 options parameters in order to (write down the original values in case this does not solve):
You need to enter all 3 digits for every number, even if there are zeroes. You use the numbers on the remote to do this.
Turn the TV off with the built in power button.
Unplug the TV for 10 seconds.
Plug the TV back in, turn it back on.
If this does not solve your problem, reset the values of the options in the service menu to the values you wrote down earlier because you have a different problem than what this fix works for.
