Most tv's have an Antenna mode and a cable mode. If you have cable tv service, the cable mode must be selected in order to receive channels higher than 23. Then you must auto program the channels thru the menu screen on the tv to receive the channels above 23. If you have a house antenna or rabbit ears, its hit or miss on receiving all VHF and UHV channels.

Tv channels

TV tuners will not go to any channel higher then 125. If you want to get the channel 500, you will need to have a cable box that are design to get all the higher channels.
Good Luck.

Bill, your set has a bad tuner, only fix for that is to R & R the tuner, 2nd option would be to use your vcrs tuner input and then RCA out cables from vct to input on back of tv, If you have never done this re-post and I`ll walk you through it, let me know, BMW Rider

At a guess the device will only find channels it can detect. So what is your connection antenna or cable If antenna then all TV is line of sight and directional If cable - only the channel's the cable co supply will come down the wire.

Tv will not change channels

Sounds like an eeprom problem or a microprocessor problem??? Also make sure the tv didnt lose its channel memory by reprogramming the channels feature in the menu. Good Luck
