Emerson 20 inch flat screen tv problem

Hello,
My Emerson tv was working fine until someone tried to reset the channels through one of it's menus. The tv went to a slow flashing "now scanning" screen. The problem is, it never stopped. We unplugged it to let it reset however when we turned it back on, it still flashes "now scanning"! We have Time Warner cable and know it should find the channels.

I have tried to use the remote and the functions of the front of the tv to get to a menue to stop the scanning...nothing....it will not let me past the flashing "now scanning" mode.

Does anyone know if there is a quick fix...am I missing something here?

The model is a EMERSON 20 " FLAT SCREEN CR202EM8

Thank you
Frustrated
Larry

I had the same problem with a 32 inch and i kept "clicking" the channel changer on the remote to force the tv to go to another channel (that had previously been selected during the initial auto scan) --- still trying to figure out why the tv locks onto the scanning for channel

Thin yellow line across the center of TV screen. It just appeared. Please help!


Reset to factory default through the settings or general menus from the remote control. If after resetting to factory default the issue remains it is likely you will need the services of a technician. Having said that, it saunds like a hardware fault but you will know for certain after a hardware reset

TV going through channels continuously


Try a reset. Different models do it different ways - but most require either unplugging for 5 - 10 minutes and plugging back in - OR - press and hold the power button on the TV for 20 - 30 seconds. You may need to access the Set Up Menu and perform the RESET from within one of the menus. Good luck!

How do I hook up my Wii to my 32" Emerson lcd hd tv? I have my dishnetwork satellite hooked into the dvd player and it's hooked up to the TV. On my remote I don't see a "game" button like my older Emerson...


I found a better way and it works fine. I have a new 32 inch Emerson, with only one composit hood up ( which won't work with the wii) 2 HDMI's ( again does not hook up to the wii, the monitor hook up for PC, red and white ( yellow plus is not there it's for a stereo they told me), and the usb hook up ( which is more for pictures I was told by the company).The answer was to hook my RCA plus to the red and white under the composite, then hook the yellow into the green plug of the composite, and behold- my will now works fine.

Is There a way to go to video/input without a remote.


My answer will be generic.

With many of these TV sets the original factory remote is required to change the input mode of the set, or to access any of the user menus.

On some models of sets, putting the channel selection down to below channel 2, puts the TV in to the external input modes.

TV problem


Might be as simple as you have the SAP or second audio progam turned on, go in to the sound menu of your set and see if it's set to S.A.P if so turn it to Stereo
