Can not access setup

I have to reprogram my cable channels.  I upgraded to a new package.  Unfortunately I can not access the "setup" command on my menu so I can not add any new channels.  I've tried unplugging the television overnight to reboot and have had no luck.  I can access every command on my menu except setup.  Any idea why?

I have a similar problem. My tv was used with satellite and now we have cable. the channel set up is only for channel 3 for satellite. The remote is broken and I can't get a universal remote to work. There is no place to access menu with buttons on front of tv. Magnavox 13" tv/dvd combo. Can anyone help?

Re: Can not access setup

Hit vol down on the tv and hold then with your universal remote puse 1. This will set the tv back to factory defaults and give u acess to all cable channels.

To find the right code first click here.

Next click on the "Remote Controls" section.

Select the type of remote you have (based on the receiver model) to view the remote control users manual.

Hope this helps!

You will have to disconnect the TV from the AC outlet for a few seconds(10-20) then reconnect the TV and press power. You should get the start up menu after you get a picture. What you have to do is use the vol up/dn , chnl up/dn keys to select the autoprogram setting after chosing from cable or antenna signal. the enter key should be one of the DVD keys either play or stop or some other key, you'll have to experiment a little with it.

I lost my remote and only need it to set the TV to channel 3 for cable. Is there any way to do this manually?

If you are able to access menu and channel setup, you can go into autoprogram and it will scan all available channels and store them.
Otherwise you can get a cheap universal or even original replacement remote

When I try to set our TV to locate digital channels, the menu skips the channel selection when I scroll through options of picture, audio, channel, lock, setup. All the options are available.

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.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

My TV cable stations (those above Channel 10) are only available if I hit "Setup" four times until the word "Memory" appears, and then change the channel. Please help me. It's a SHARP TV. Thanks so much.

you should enter the set-up function and see if your TV is set to ANT (Antenna) or cable. It should be set to cable.

You could also check if there is an option to have the TV reprogram the channels it automatically switches to. It will be called 'channeld set-up, auto-program...soemthing like that. Since you can get them by messing with the settings we know it CAN get the channels, it just doesn't want to switch to them when you hit channel up or down.

Hope this helps!

Channel Changing

Some TV's have a 115 to 125 channel limit then will go to video in and then channel 2 and start over. Your TV's tuner may not have the ability to decode those channels. My suggestion would be to get a set top box (cable box) that can access channels. Your provider should have these or can suggest where to get one. Probably less expensive than a new TV.

Configuring I/O cable box, VCR, DVD.

Unfortunately you would need a second digital cable tuner to do what you are trying to do.
The digital tuner only outputs one channel at a time, selected by that box, so you can only record or watch that one channel at a time.

Many people are switching to dual tuner DVR's to cure this dilemma.
