If the channel change is going up the channel up button on the set is stuck or shorted. if the channels go down then its the channel down button on the set that is stuck or shorted. also check with the manufacurer for software upgrades.

Without the specific model number, I can't give you teh exact sequence, but you need to setup the set to only enable channel 3. Work your way through the menus to select channel 3 as your "favorite" channel. Disable all of the others. The set should then turn on as channel 3 at all times. Feel free to post the model number and I'll pass along more details.

If you've got a digital box from your cable provider, your tv most likely needs to be on channel 3. At that point you would use the remote that came with the digital box to change the channel. (in other words, your tv would always stay on channel 3)

Hello! This is what we call a black screen with banner. If you unplug the receiver for ten seconds this will reset the receiver and should correct this.

Hi,

Always turn on your TV with the Sky box (or any other external device you want to use) turned OFF. When the TV is on, turn on the Sky box by pressing the "Sky" button at the top centre of the remote control. This will ensure that the TV recognises that there is an external input and it will automatically switch to the correct channel. It also ensures that your Sky remote control isn't in TV mode.

If you switch your TV to standby using the Sky remote after watching, the next time you use the Sky remote, it's still in TV mode. This is why your TV channels are jumping around.

Hope this helps.

Usually this happens to my set when I am in HD cable channel mode after being on a non-digital ANALOG channel.

I basically reset the TV by changing to a DIGITAL cable channel -- stay on that channel for ten-twenty seconds -- then I switch back DIRECTLY to a HD channel (key in channel number directly on remote).

TV works fine -- seems to be a glitch when the TV changes modes from Analog to HD

The problem was caused by ME not setting up my Harmony Remote correctly after buying the new TV. The remote was programmed to turn on SA8300>turn on Receiver>Turn on TV>Select channel 3.

Simple change from select channel 3 to select Input 4.

Channels won't stay put


Sounds like you may have a stuck button or bad switch on the keyboard. In rare cases you may have something interfering with the IR which you can test by blocking the sensor on the TV.

Channel changes automatically


There are a few things that can cause this. #1 most often cause is either something spilled on the channel button or something wrong with the bezel where the buttons are located causing the button to be pressed all the time. Check the buttons on the tv and make sure none of them are stuck. #2 is a bad button (switch). Replace the switch or the control board. #3 is a short on the wiring harness going from the switch to the mian board. Maybe it's squished against the frame somewhere. #4 would be a bad main board. You will likely have to take this unit to a service centre to have it looked at.
