TV gets stuck on channel, won't advance past channel 7.1

TV is about a month old, problem started two days ago. When flipping through channels as soon as I get to channel 7.1 the TV gets "stuck", it won't advance past the channel or go back to previous channel. Up until two days ago 7.1 did not present any problems at all. Not sure if this is a TV problem or a cable problem. I tried resetting the TV to factory defaults but it still displays the same behavior. What else can I do so I don't get stuck on that channel when fipping through the channels?

    Already did the channel search again after resetting to factory defaults. Same result. Why do you think it may be the digital board, this seems unlikely to me since it is only the one channel? Any thing else I can try?

    tbidle2 hit the nail on the head. Yes, Cablevision. I was familiar with the "work around" already. But I am happy to report that the issue disappeared yesterday and is still gone today so maybe Cablevision resolved part of their issues. At least in my part of Middlesex County in New Jersey.

    Thanks folks!

    the channels will not advance, the tv goes on and off by itself, sometimes i will get a pic and sound and then it goes away, sometimes i just get sound, sometimes the opc and power light blink

I'm assuming you have Cablevision. This is becoming a known problem with their broadcasting system. They have been upgrading since last thursday and it has been causing the Sharp TVs to freeze up on channel 7.1. There have been reports of channel 21, 21.1, and 24 as well.

Simple way to fix it:
1. Unplug tv
2. Unplug coax from tv
3. Plug tv back in
4. In the Menu go to Setup > CH setup > CH Memory > Cable (digital)
5. Enable channel skip for channel 7.1
6. Push Menu to exit
7. Change to any other channel
8. Reconnect coax to tv.

Avoid channel 7.1 and go give Cablevision a call and let them know about it. They won't do anything to fix it until they get a certain number of reported issues about the problem. Enjoy.

Try doing the Channel Search again. See if that helps.

If not, sounds like the Digital Board could be defective. Since this TV is brand new suggest calling your local sharp authorized service center to replace that board under warranty.

My Dell W3707C LCD TV won't quit flipping. The only button that works is the power button. I can hold the channel button down and flipping stops for about 2 minutes and then it starts flipping a

one of two basic things here, unplug set to see if after a while it helps, and if channel scanning up or down on its own suspect the button associated with the direction it changes is a bad one.
