Re: Channel keeps changing

If you are using the remote to change channels it sounds like either the front of the remote and/or the receiving “eye” on the TV need to be cleaned, OR (more likely) the button on the remote is sticking. It is actually a button that pushes on a membrane under the entire remote panel. This is generally caused by some sticky liquid (like Coke) getting spilled on it. If you are brave enough, you can take the remote apart and clean it with denatured alcohol. Otherwise you need to replace your remote. If possible borrow a universal remote and see if it still happens. If that doesn’t fix it you have a bad IR receiver and/or a serious internal problem.

Why am I not able to change channel on Sharp Aquos television?

Try changing channels with the button on the TV to make sure the remote is not bad. Sometimes one or just a few buttons on the remote will quit functioning. It is usually the ones that are used the most. What channel is the TV on? If it is 3 or 4 or one of the aux inputs; it may have been told to stay that way because the channels were changed by a cable box. Go to set up and scan channels into memory. After it has started, do not stop it until it says on the screen that is finished. If you stoop it before it has completed the scan, the TV will keep its original program. (one channel)

Sharp LC-37DB5U stuck on one channel. Won't respond to anything. Put in a new motherboard and same problem persists. Sound and picture are fine

I could be wrong, but it sounds like the TV hasn't gone through channel setup. You have to do this in order for the TV to "learn" the channels, assuming you are using cable. If you are using cable run channel search in the setup menu and see if that changes anything. Can you change channels by manually entering in the channel # and hitting enter?

To see if the problem is with your remote control, go to the receiver and use the channel up/down buttons on the receiver itself. If you can change your channels with the buttons on the receiver, the batteries in your remote control probably need to be changed.

If you can't change channels from the receiver, turn off the receiver. Then unplug it for at least 15 seconds. Plug the receiver back it and turn it on. Again, try changing channels from the receiver itself.

Tune to a channel, and while programming is playing, try tuning to the missing channel by entering the channel number on the remote control keypad to see if channels change. Do not try to select the channel from a channel list, program guide, or favorites list.

If this approach takes you to the correct channel, you need to adjust your favorites list function. Press the "guide" button on your remote. Look for a button on your remote called "fav" or "list." Press it several times and watch for an indication at the top of the guide that you are moving from "all channels" to a particular favorites list.

If you are locked on one channel only, your Channel Lock feature is likely active. Consult your owner's manual to unlock the rest of your channels. See your owner's manual for information on managing favorite channel lists and locking out channels. Enter your password, if necessary.

FLM-373B will not change channel?

if no channel up or down with front buttons OR remote:

either a glitch has happened (unplug set and or box--wait and plug back to see if both will boot up)

The feature may have been grayed out or disabled--look in setup to see if any options there are grayed out (not available)

If set is locked on one channel a reboot may or may not cure the issue.

Try to direct enter a channel with the remote like 03 enter and see if it goes there.

Keep in mind all sets (and this one) have a Eprom that controls this--memory of channels and it could be bad.

let know what you find.

I dont have cable.i was using this tv just to play dvds and i accidentally hit channel search. now i get a blue screen that says" plerase connect cable system or an antenna to the terminal on the back...

Using remote locate a button called tv/video or Input, turn on the DVD player and hit this button until you see your DVD player Logo. Most dvd players use either video 1 or 2, or componet or HDMI outputs. Seems you have changed the TV's input back to TV mode and you need to change it to a video mode input.

1. the newstar universal tv remote contrlol i bought, cannot change the channel, although i can use the adding/minus the volume. 2. in as much as wanted to use also for te change of channel, i follow...

Unfortunately, universal remotes often do not work as well as the packaging says.... but all hope is not lost.
First, try ALL the programming codes listed for your brand of TV. Often, one will work. Be sure to follow the programming instructions, which usually have you trying the POWER ON/OFF button first after reprogramming.
If that fails, most universal remotes have a "scan" feature that, when you start it, will cycle through every code it has stored. During a "scan" you keep the remote pointed at the set and when the set powers off, you hit the ENTER key (or the key specified in the remote manual) to stop the scan and test the functioning of your remote (channel +/-, VOL +/-, etc.)- it takes a long time and can get frustrating, but keep trying and you should find a set of codes that will operate your TV correctly.
If you have no luck, do not give up hope completely- I would next recommend that you purchase a Philips brand universal remote- this is the brand that I have found to be most flexible.
