Cnannel scan detects no channels

I have recently purchased an LG 42LB5D. During initial setup, auto channel scan cannot detect the channel 3 my Dish Network runs through. I know it's not the actual connection, because I had a similar TV hooked up the same way and it worked fine. Could it be that the tuner is faulty? Please help!

Kingscott,
Make sure the cable connection from the dish to the tv is
connected to the antenna/cable input and not the digital
input. Turn on the satellite receiver then auto program the
set with the receiver still on. If this fails to lock in channel
3 your suspicion regarding a faulty tuner could be correct.
A good way to check the tuner operation would be to hook
up another product such as a VCR with the rear switch set
for channel 3 and see if you can receive a picture from this
device. If it works the tuner is OK.
You can bypass the tuner by connecting an S-Video cable
and (or) a set of A/V (yellow,red & white) cables from the
output of the satellite receiver to the video 1 input on the tv.
You'll then have to switch the tv source mode to video 1.
Hope this of some help,
Caseybee

I am having trouble with the initial setup of channels, I can't seem to lock in the HD channels when going thru the beginning setup


The normal method is to do a full auto scan and once it's at 100% store or save the scanned list?if you try to do it manually you will take ages because some channels the polarity switches and parameters for the horizontal and vertical parts of the dish change frequency.
so make sure the cable is connected properly into tv or smart box and rescan.once it's reached 100% look for the save or store button on screen.the hd channels should be automatically put within the saved list and usually colour coded in the menu.when selecting channels.

How do you do a channel search on a 32LC50C ?


Press the Menu button and go to SETUP. There is a quick scan selection that will detect both analog and digital signals. Or if you are using a optional receiver (digital), it will lock into the channel, most likely channel 3, to display the signal. I hope this helps.

Go to main menu and select settings, initial setup, TV signal input, select Antenna, go to channel scan, select digital channel scan if there is a choice, or else channel scan. Wait for the scan to complete, 3 minutes or so. Exit menu, go to input and select ANT.
