Did you ever find a solution to your issue? I just had the same thing happen, and am concerned that the digital tuner is shot.

The problem is the voltage regulator U5 on the tuner board.

Replace it with a AMS1117-1.8 regulator, it will fix your problem.

My Vizio Plasma HDTV is not picking up all of the basic cable channels.


Bring up your menu and go to add channels. Then select auto. It may take awhile.

The DTV input in my GV46L stays black. Why?


You don't say what you are trying to input but take note that your model does not have a digital tuner on the DTV input. If you use a digital OTA antenna, the signal must first go through a digital converter or tuner before it goes into the DTV input. The DTV/ANT input is only cable ready. There is no digital tuner in the TV to activate the DTV menu.

I have removed all cable boxes from my home. I cannot get the tv remote to change channels. I was told by the cable tech that I needed to do a channel search. How do I do that?


Which specific model do you have? The menus may depend on your model. Are you using the original TV remote or a different remote? If you do not have the TV remote, try the buttons on the TV. Use the channel up/down buttons to navigate through the menu items and the volume up button to enter a sub-menu.

Try Menu and locate the Channel sub-menu. Then make sure that the antenna Air/Cable item is set correctly. Then the Channel Search option is on the next line. This is the method for the LCD2050. For the TTM2901L, you need the same Channel sub-menu but the channel search is called "Auto Program".

A number of other manuals for Polaroid TVs are available here: http://www.polaroid-tv.com/polaroid-lcd-tv/manual/ .

I hope this helps. If you add a comment with your model number, I'll be glad to provide additional help. (Note: without the model, I can't be sure which tuners (NTSC - analog OTA or cable, ATSC - digital OTA, or QAM - digital cable) are in your TV. This may change whether you can receive any stations without the cable boxes.)

I need the channel search directions for VIZIO E3223VL


When you first turned on your HDTV you scanned for channels using the Setup App. If you did not do this
or if your setup has changed, you can do this from the Tuner menu.
Note: The tuner option can only be selected when your HDTV is in TV input mode.


Here is the manual. Instructions for this is on Page 36:

Have a vizio lcd tv . can not get any channels today with the switch over to digital. i use an antenna


Your TV probably does not have a digital tuner connected to the DTV/ANT input. Mine didn't. I had to connect the digital antenna to a digital converter box THEN go to the DTV/ANT input. Only then would it activate the DTV menu and allow me to scan for channels. If your TV worked fine with Cable TV connected to the input, it was because your signal was coming from the digital tuner in your DVR, or your cable provider was sending you an unscrambled digital signal (not likely).
I used a digital converter box I had purchased with the government $40 coupon back in 2009 but the resolution is only 480 and looks like a Monet or Renoir. Now I am shopping for a high quality tuner.

CHANGE CHANNELS WITH THE CONTROL


Run a channel scan on the DTV and/or TV input depending on what one your not getting channels on. This will solve your issue.

Change the input on the unit to the DTV or TV input. Press the menu button on the remote. Navigate to the tuner DTV or TV tuner setup menu. Go down to auto search using the down arrow. go right when with auto search selected. This may take a few minutes but you should have all the channels back after the scan.

Follow up on No DTV tuner after unplugging it a month for vacation. After I let it set plugged in for about 2-3 days it started working normally again and has been fine ever since. I hope this may help someone else. Genez 6-7-09

Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv


Simple Fix

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

Here is the fix:

1. Turn on TV

2. With remote, press the Menu Button

3. Go to Antenna Menu

4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.
