Question about Dell W3706MC 37 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Digital Tuner won't rescan.

I tried to retune to include new channels, and sure enough that was the last time I've been able to use the digital side. And I have no idea how to do any kind of reset, although from what I've been reading it doesn't look like that would help much...

How do i select the channel menu


Many times the re-scan tune option goes away if you've selected an input on the TV other than the "tuner", "Antenna" or similar (ie: AV1, HDMI1, Sat, Cable, etc.do not make use of your TV's internal tuner).

Make sure you select an input on your TV, ( tuner, etc.) that will use the tuner and have an antenna or non-digital Cable TV coaxial cable connected. Then attempt to scan again.

Why does my t.v.not store programmes after digital auto tuning


If you're dioing a rescan, then all it is doing is refreshing the existing channel slot frequencies from the last time it went and found channels. The big retune has moved a lot of channels. You need to do a Factory Default / Shipping Condition / First Time Installation scan. This blanks the TV's channel memory and starts again.

Auto retune has wiped everything. Help


There is the digital tuner (DTV) and the analogue tuner (TV). Make sure you are tuning the digital side as there are no longer any analogue TV broadcasts in the UK.

I have a Philips TV, model HD2717 C101. All channels do not display--Why? It skips quite a few channels on scan, the only to get them is to actually select the channel individually.


Hi are you running it off of an antenna or cable?
Assuming you have a digital tuner and are selecting the proper type of channel search Ie: cable or air it could be that the tv needs a firmware update to the tuner.

I have experienced similar issues with several TV's I had an Olevia 37" HDTV that required a firmware update to get the tuner to properly decode channels.

I also have seen lots of cases were people have cable hooked up without a cable box and receive "mixed" channels.

I currently have Comcast and have 6 TV's hooked up 3 with cable boxes and 3 directly off the line. According to Comcast I should not be getting anything besides "basic" channels without a box but using the digital tuner in the TV's does pickup most of the channels and even some HD channels that are not there using their boxes.

Interestingly enough none of the TV's tuners decode the channels into the same "channel." As an example HGTV on 1 TV shows up as 84.4 but then 86.1 on the second and something like 84.11 on the third.

My recommendation run the auto program again then go through channel by channel and see if anything needs to be manually entered or deleted. I know this is a pain in the **** and takes about 20 minutes per TV but hopefully that will tell you if your TV tuner is relocating the channels to another channel.

Lastly if your tuner is not digital or if the tuner can't be updated you may have to use a secondary tuner such as one in a VCR to get the channels you desire.

This whole Digital Conversion that we have undergone has brought to light for me at least that our government and corporations don't care about the real world impact on the ordinary person.

Sure they made money on reallocating bandwidth and sure tons of new HDTV's and digital products (including digital cable) have been sold but I haven't come across anyone who feels they have benefited from the conversion forced upon us.

Hope this helps sorry about my rant.

We bought an LG flatscreen TV and a digital...


it's the aerial, tv has nothing to do with channels. it's the signal that carries the channels. i'm pretty sure if you had it hooked up to a cable box, you'll get all the channels, so i'm sure your tv is fine. i would double check on the aerial and positioning the attenna has some factor into it.

Locked out of digital antenna in setup. I had it


1. ensure that you are on the TV tuner when you are trying to scan channels
2. if analog tuner works, but you cannot access digital tuner....the digital tuner is broken

When you turned channels before, did it switch between analog and digital channels seamlessly or did you need to press a button to acces digital channels seperately?

If you accesed digital channels seamlessly, #2 is not likely
If seperately, #2 is very likely.
