Part of this answer depends on whether your area is still running the standard broadcast radios or the "newer" trunk tracking style. The two are not compatible. If they are still standard, then press the E button to enter the program mode. Enter the desired freq. and hit the E button will enter the freq into memory. Tap manual to step to the next channel and repeat the steps to keep programming. Open the squelch to hear static then close just a little to quiet the noise and it should lock on and talk to you. Good luck with it,,and happy hunting. Mechanic

The electricity went off last night and now my tv doesn’t get any channel from the antena. I already scan for channel but the tv doesn’t pick any channel


unplug the tv and let it sit for about 5 minutes.

then plug it in and follow the user manual's steps to re-program the channels.

if that fails, then contact a repair facility for help. not knowing the make or model of equipment makes further guidance difficult to impossible.

Run channel auto scan


The auto scan feature scans the various channel frequencies looking for a signal. Weak signals may be picked up on one scan and missed on the next. Check your antenna or add a antenna power booster and try again.

Why wont my scanner model 60 channel pro-2029 scan


Hi Chad,

Do you have any frequencies programmed into your radio scanner?

If not, then that is why you're not receiving anything.

If on the other hand you do have frequencies programmed, are they the correct frequencies for your location?

Are the frequencies the Tx or Rx frequencies that you programmed, The Tx frequencies are the correct frequencies to program, as Rx is the mobile(usually) Tx frequencies, and unless you're within 5 miles of that mobile, you won't hear it, and you certainly won't hear the base transmissions, unless it's a high powered Simplex Frequency.

I hope this has been useful to you.

Cheers,
Peter

I do not know how to do a channel scan, can you help me please? I seriously thought that I could find anything online but I have not been able to find how to channel scan this tv.


What brand/model TV do you have? If the TV has several input options, make sure that the TV is set to the TV mode. (Use the Input or Source button on the remote, some TVs have this on the TV as well but not always)

Some can only do a channel scan with the original remote. My old Emerson CRT (~20 years old) launched a channel scan when I pressed the Add and Delete Channel buttons together on the remote. Fortunately even when most of the buttons failed on that remote, the channel scan still launched.

Other TVs from that time frame have an channel scan button in the control panel. Often these are hidden behind a panel to avoid accidental resets.

More modern TVs usually have the scan as part of the menu. Depending on the TV, press Menu on the remote (or if available on the TV (sometimes can be done by pressing Ch+/Ch- together)). Then look for a Setup option or a TV icon. If you have a Setup menu, you will then need to go to the TV submenu. Then find the option for setting the input signal (TV/cable) and then you should be able to launch a channel scan. (Usually the Ch+/Ch- (up/down) and Vol+/Vol- (left/right) buttons will navigate through the menus.)

Unfortunately, without the make and model, I can't give you any more help. Please write back with your brand of TV and I'll check if I have the manual in my stack.

(low end universal remotes do not always include the menu or source button. If your TV doesn't have them, you may need a different remote. The ones that can be programmed via a USB connection are the easiest to set up.)

Channel scan only finds 1 channel with basic cable setup on LG 42LD520


if you have a cable box just plug the cable box into a scart socket on the tv, switch the tv to the scart input and use the cable remote to change channel?Scanning for channels wont find anything because you are receiving the channels on a cable box. If you are refering to standard or digital tv signals and your not receiving any channels then either you are only scanning analogue tv and therefore wont pick up any digital tv channels, or your ariel is inadequate to receive an acceptable digital reception and will need to be upgraded. please state country you are in and what you are expecting to receive

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

It just scans and scans it never picks anything up. No clue how to work this scanner or where to get codes for it. When you turn it on, it just scans thru all the channels but doesn't seem to pick anything...


Sounds like either your squelch is set too high or you don't have the proper frequencies for your area programmed into the scanner. When it starts scanning turn the squelch down gradually until the scanning stops and you hear noise, then turn up slowly until it starts to scan again. If you still don't pick up anything, you probably need to reprogram the frequencies. For a list of active frequencies and systems in your area visit
www.RadioReference.com
or
www.CityFreq.com
In case you need it, here's a link to the manual for your scanner.

If you have any other questions, please contact us again.

Lose router signal everytime i restart my laptop


This seems to be an issue with the router itself. As the laptop is able to connect to other networks easily, the trouble seems to be with the router.

Try updating the firmware on the router. Also, change the wireless channel on the router and check if that helps. If the issue persists then I believe you will have to get the router replaced.
