Question about LG 15LW1R 15 in. LCD Television

Open Question

No channel signal is found in searching tv channels (15LW1R)

It ran well, but suddendly all stored tv channels were lost. The airal tv cable is ok because another TV machine runs well. I tried to search tv channels, automatically and manually, but without success. The parameters seem to be ok. May it be a physical problem ?. May someone access via wifi to the transmitter machine and make changes to desconfigure it ?.

You need to press the button on the top right of the control ( the TV button) once and that will allow you to control the tv once again. Problem occurs when you accidently push VCR or DVD button which means remote control will try a different frequency to operate a VCR or DVD that isn't there. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: TV freezes when switching to a digital channel

The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

SOURCE: Same problem

Out of range usually has a very different meaning when looking at LCD TV's

It usually means that a resolution that was beyond the design capacity was chosen.

eg some TV's can only do 720p but people may try to set them to 1080I

this would give an OUT OF RANGE" error this is also common to many computer displays too.

SOURCE: 52LG70 sometimes turns off and on periodically

I had the same problem. I changed the 4-3 setting on the motorola cable box. Turn off your cable box and press menu. My 4-3 setting was set to auto. If you turn it off, you lose the 4-3 aspect on most channels. I changed mine to 480p and so far it seems to be working. Worth a shot.

Wont find channels on auto channel search

Ensure that you have a good connection to your antenna/cable/satellite, and that you have selected the proper signal type in your TV menu.

If you are using a cable box or satellite, you might need to search for an analog signal on channel 3 or 4. If your cable/satellite box outputs an HDTV signal, then search the digital channels. If you are using an antenna, search for digital channels and set it the TV to Air in the Channel menu.

"Failed to receive broadcast"

On your TV remote,press "INPUT".It is hard to find,but it should be there.Select"TV" and press"ENTER" button.I believe it is on the top of the list.On some cable boxes you have to select channel 3 and use the cable box remote to change channels.Also,make sure your TV antenna setting is set to "Cable" from the "Air/Cable"(Antenna setting).You will have to read your manual to find out how to get to this menu.After that do a "Ch Search"[Channel search].This automatically searches for all available channels and stores them. It will take some time.You will see the channel numbers as it does it's search.This is done so when you press channel up and down keys it will only go to next channel available and not to one with no signal.Hope this is of some help.

Dynex 32" 720 LCD HDTV - no channel listing after run auto scan?

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:

If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)

To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.

Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

Tv guide/tuner problems

Most likely the TV Guide is broadcast from the OTA PBS channel. I don't know why its being lost. I'm thinking its probably a firmware problem of some sort. Adding the PBS channel back in, making sure the signal comes in ok and leaving the TV off for a while might help.
