Question about Samsung LNT3242H Television

1 Answer

Channel scanning My tv appears to be possessed! It is scanning channels like its doing some sort of auto programming, only I didn't push anything! I can be sitting there watching tv and then suddenly it starts scanning through channels. I am unable to push any menus, I can't do anything to stop it regardless of what I push. I can't even shut it off when it does this unless I unplug it because even the power button doesn't work. I left it off overnight and it appeared normal today after work, then suddenly it started all over again? Should I take it back where I got it from? It's been 6 weeks since I bought it. Tanya

Yes file for repair as everything you would have to do to fix this means opening it. and likely voiding the warranty.

I want to hook up my old 1992 Sylvania TV to HD Antenna, but I cannot figure out how to scan or auto-program the channels. Model SRC1351 101


Hello... Somewhere in the same menu as the Air/Cable setting should be an option to scan for channels. It might be called Auto-Program, or something similar. The bad news is that: "On June 12, 2009, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) mandated that all U.S. based television signals must be transmitted digitally." Since your TV was manufactured in 1992, it isn't capable of detecting or displaying digital channels. If you're really fond of the TV, you will need some sort of conversion box. If you can afford to, I'd recommend buying a new TV, and get the extended warranty. I hope this helps!

I have a 32inch Olivia tv model 432S12 I can not get the tv to auto scan channels. How do I get to reset my channels or reset factory settings.


1st unplug your TV.After 5 minutes turn it on and see if it prompts you to set up the TV with a setup wizard of some sort. This will probably include an auto scan of channels. If that doesn't work explore all options in the menu to see if there is a reset of some sort. And if all else fails, read the users manual.

Goodmorning, bought a zenith tv didn't get the remote. Wonndering how i can programme it using just the buttons on the tv. How do i get the menus up. it only catches threes channels as of now.

There are two types Zenith TVs. One type will have "Menu" button on its front panel and other will not. If your Zenith is the first type, you can programme it without a remote control. If it is the second type, you must have a remote control hanset to programme it.

First connect the TVs antenna socket at its back with external antenna or cable.

* With the remote control in hand, press the POWER key to
turn on the Presentation TV.
** Press MENU repeatedly until the Setup menu appears.

*** Using the Up/Down arrow on the remote control, highlight

**** Press the Right or Left arrow to go to the Auto Program
menu.

***** Using the Up/Down arrow, choose either Cable TV or Off-

****** Press the Right or Left arrow to begin the Channel Search.
******* Press ENTER when the channel search is done.

Programming channels


The only thing I see in the Manual is to do an auto search which will scan all available channels and saves them to memory. the faxtory setting is auto search. the search allows you to manually search for available channels. in this mode, available channel must be stored individually. the program sets your favorite channel to appear when the tv is turned on. the range is from channel 0 - 255. i hope this helps.
