It sounds like your TV is on a different input. If you watch your cable from an external cable box, and this box is plugged into your TV using wires that are yellow, red, and white, or red, blue, green, red and white, you're currently watching TV on a different input than the one used for the antenna. Channels in a TV are controlled by the tuner. The tuner is the silver, threaded, post on the back of a TV, DVR, converter box, or VCR, that you plug an antenna or cable wire to. The tuner contols channels while the other inputs on your TV carry a direct signal like a computer to a monitor. So when you use something other than coaxial cable to connect cable to your TV, you can't access the channel menu while on that input. To access that menu, change the TV's input or source to TV or stop when you see a channel number on the screen. You have to be on the TV or tuner input in order to access the channel menu. If you're on any other input such as, S-Video, AV1, AV2, component (Yp Br Cr), HDMI, etc. you will not be able to do a channel scan. You have to be on the right input or source.

What's the imput button or code on remote for ten year old TV. Model #14MS2331/17


According to the manual for the Magnavox 14MS2331/17B, you switch to the A/V input by pressing Ch+ or Ch- on either the TV or the remote until you see AV as the current option. (Thus you have to scroll down from Channel 2 or up from Channel 69 for an OTA signal. For cable TV, the AV will be reached by Ch - from channel 1 or Ch + from channel 125.) See page 3 (7 of the PDF) here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/14ms2331_17b/14ms2331_17b_dfu_aen.pdf .

Since it is possible to skip channels by editing the channel list, you may need to check if the AV option has been skipped. To do this, press Menu. Use the up/down buttons to navigate to Install and press the right button to enter this menu. Highlight the Channel Edit line and press the right button to check this. Once in this sub-menu, use the left/right buttons to scroll through the Channel number options (or use Ch+/Ch- to see the stored list). You can also type in a channel number on the remote. Press the down arrow to change to the line that reads Skipped. Use the left/right arrows to change between Yes or No. (No indicates you can reach the channel with the Ch+/Ch- buttons.) Use the Up arrow to return to the channel number line to scroll to other channels. Press Status/Exit to leave the menu system. See page 10 (14 of the PDF) for details.

I hope this helps.

Toshiba LCD TV/DVD 15LV505 lost channels. Rescan = fewer channels. Now in Setup, when I press the remote down-it skips the Channel option. What must I fix/change in Settings to get the Channel option?


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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.

Toshiba 42 lcd cannot delete channels I use the manual channel set and select Not Viewable for channels I don't want to see. Then as I click through the channels, the deleted channels show up again.


Also have a 42" Toshiba and had the same problem, then had issues moving the channel order while some channels were set to skip.

What I ended up doing was retuning the tv. Then went through the channel list (Menu -> Setup -> DTV Setting -> Channels) and changed the number of the channels I didn't want to 1000+ (using the red button, ie 1001, 1002, 1003...). This in itself does not change the channel order, but when I then move these channels to the end of the channel list and because they are numbered numerically I can be sure I don't miss any.

Next I went to the channel options (Menu -> Setup -> DTV Setting -> Channel Options) and marked all the channels I'd moved to the end of the list as channels to skip and locked. This does not remove the channels from the EPG but it does move them to the end of the list and when scrolling with the channel +/- buttons these channels will not be selected.

Ideally I would also like to delete channels such as QVC etc altogether and would love to know if anyone has a more effective solution to this issue.
