Re: 24'' f27242gy

It looks like you will need to autoprogram the rest of the channels but do this you will need to have the TV connected to cable to store more than channel 3.
Good Luck.

I accidentally hit the menu button on my tv and seem to have reset something. It goes from Channel 126 directly to Channel 24 and will not set to channel 3, which is the only one that works with my cable

You have hit the channel skip function to on. Go to menu and come towards functions where you can see channel skip. Keep it to "off" position. Now it is in "on" position.

TV only works on HD stations

Your TV has an SD/ED component input and an HD component input. You are using the HD input. It can only accept HD signals. You need to correct the settings in you cable box. You need to "fix" the video output so that it converts everything to HD. If you have a motorola box, you can usually turn the box off and press the menu button to access the cable box setup menu. Set the 4:3 override to Stretch or Full. If you need more help with this, post back with more information: cable provider, cable box used. I hope this was of some assistance.

Menu will not come up. Channel will not change. No remote.

I did not get who the manufacture was of the tv but you may want to see if one or more of
the menue buttons are stuck down on the tv's front panel. This has been a common cause of
problems with Mitsubishi and Sony tv's. It could also cause volume to go up by it's self, no menue
functions, no power up and or no remote control functions to work.
Hope this helps,

No remote

heidib, if the front of the set has a menu button try going in and autoprogramming your channels, it seems odd that it won`t go above or below channel 2 which tells me none of the other channels are programmed in. Good luck

If you have a remote control you should be able to access the "atuoprogram" feature within the setup menus. This will look for all active channels and place them into memory. What model is it?
