Very old Sanyo TV channel programming

I aquired a Sanyo AVM270 (1986) TV and I am having trouble programming the stations. There is no auto program that I can find and due to the age of this model there are no manuals to be found on the net.

There is a button under the bottom edge of the screen (with the controls) that has the options "Normal" and "CATV" - press this and it should solve your problem.

SOURCE: magnavox with pic tube tv skips over channel 3..goes from 2 to 4

You are right about the auto-programming, but Magnavox no longer has the original remote.

For my answer to be right, you must have posted this question to the EXACT CORRECT model # of your Magnavox TV - 27ms343s:

Press TV on your Verizon remote, and then press "0" and "3"

If that fails:
Press MENU to see the TV’s on-screen
menu. In the menu, use VOL.+/_ and
CH.+/_ to make adjustments or selections.
You can press MENU on either the
remote control or the front of the TV to
access or remove the menu.

You need to go into the menu and set it for cable insted of air/tv. The television is only getting the 2 - 13 because on that setting, its as high as it goes.

Ya what you got to do is Grab your tv, and throw it out your window. Garbage tv with built in problems made to be fixed. I had the same tv and i had many problems with it before. Just buy a new one boss.

How do I program the channel numbers into my tv?

Go to the menu, and pick what type of signal, then it will go to a auto program menu, and at that time is when you auto program you stations.

Add a station

This set isn't capable of going over 68, this is all it's programmed for. You will need to get a channel box that overrides the tv's programming in order to add the channel 73.

Only getting some channels to come in...

Check your latest phone bill and see if you have a basic extended package. If you dont you may have been downgraded to only get basic cable which is 2-13.

The auto program adds every channel that the television can detect.

SONY KV32V16...can't get all my cable stations.

I called our cable company about getting a converter box and it ended up I didn't need one after all. The cable rep told me to go to the menu and try the auto-programming. He was familiar with the TV I have and said that a converter box is not necessary. So, I tried the auto-programming and still didn't get all the channels...then I noticed on the menu for the channel set up there was the word "Cable" and after it it said "Off" so, I switched that to "On" and did the auto-programming, and Presto! I got all my channels.

TV won't "talk" with satellite cable

Try to see if you have 5volts for your EEPROM. If the voltage is normal try to replace your EEPROM or try to reprogram it. Your EEPROM is corrupted so that's why it will not store data.

Trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box

Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

I think, Your TV menu item to auto-program has been locked. read its user manaul to unlock it. Many companies gives such lock facility in tv to avoid miss use.
