    Same problem

  • Anonymous Mar 23, 2008

    I cannot remember how to get out of the auto scan mode after the t.v. has been unplugged then plugged back up. When I first bought the t.v. a little over a month ago, this happened when we first plugged the t.v. up. We were not able to switch over to any other menus. Somehow my 10 year old daughter pushed some button that got it out of the auto scan mode so that we could flip up and down through the channels. The manual that came with the t.v. isn't that helpful and the Westinghouse website wouldn't let you click on any of the links or help pages. Does anyone know what to do?

I had the same issue. I just bought this tv. I went to source on the side of the tv pushed the input button til it went to YPbPr1 and the screen came up. My HD cable box is a little old so I'm using that instead of HDMI. But if your using HDMI just keep hitting that button til you see HDMI and it should work.

SOURCE: LCD 32 inch Auto Scan issue

I have experienced exactly the same issue on two Westinghouse sets. Try turning the set off when it reaches 83%. When I turn mine off and back on, it has saved the channels -- at least the ones it had found before it got hung up.

SOURCE: Auto Scan doesn't pick up any channels.

In the main settings, there should be an option for AIR or CATV, air is for non-cable and CATV is for cable tv. This has to be on the correct setting before you autoscan

Why does my Westinghouse tv display "auto scan required" when it is on an outdoor digital antenae and there is no picture


Auto scan programs the channels. Auto scan detects the signal strength of the channel and adds the ones that you can watch.

PROGRESSIVE LIGHT WAS SET BY MISTAKE, AND IT HAS BEEN SET ON AUTO HOW CAN I SOLVE THIS PROBLEM BECAUSE THERE'S ONLY A BLACK SCREEN AND SOUNDS THAT COMES ON.


According to the operating instructions (page 97), Progressive Scan can be cancelled (or turned off) by pressing and holding PAUSE (on the main unit) continuously for 5 - 10 seconds, until the progressive indicator goes out, or turning it off in the setup menu. Your recorder should now be back to normal interlace video output. I recommend that you check your setup menu after this procedure to make sure nothing 'AUTO' is set, that shouldn't be set, and subsequently turning off any function that isn't required.

Have purchased a curtis model kcr2614A under the counter kitchen player, cannot program TV, have an hd tv antenna, directions are difficult to understand for programming, I would appreciate assistance....


I have found a manual that may be better than you have now, it seems real easy to understand and has pictures too,basically you use the Volume + & - keys to step through the Menu, and there is an "Auto Search" function too..5.5.1.1 page 11, start there and follow pictures.. START: Press MENU Key to enter the menu list, press Left and Right Key to enter the following list, press Up and Down Key to enter the sub-list and then press Left and Right Key to setup the contents. 5.5.1.2. In the CATV state, choose Auto scan and press OK to enter Cable system settings. Four options, AUTO, STD, IRC, HRC can be chosen. 5.5.2. In the Start to scan item, press VOL+ to start searching. Auto searching will clear the primary program. 5.5.3. Press Auto Scan Add Ch will start auto search based on primary program.

You don't need to do all the extra bits like names etc, if you don't want... just use default settings.. Get the manual below... http://www.curtisint.com/html/CustService/Manuals/CUR_KCR2614A_EN.PDF
