Check your antenna direction (antennaweb.org or tvfool.com are good sources for signal direction). When I lose channels, it's a digital signal that came in with "bad signal" strength and my external antenna has rotated in the wind. (Oddly another TV in the house doesn't seem to lose the signal as easily even though they share an antenna.)

Also check the weather conditions and time of day. I've gained distant channels when scanning near sunrise or sunset and lost others during thunderstorms.

I hope this helps.

Lost the remote for my Dynex and trying to connect to cable. Without the remote I cannot seem to change to chanel 3 manually, any suggestions?


Most TVs have a way of changing the channels manually. One of the buttons on the device will change the channels up or down.

How to install a channel that i lost because ofthe wind


I can think of a few humerous quips for this question....

Not sure how the wind could remove a channel unless the antenna has shifted. Like 2 and a half men, its better to call the antenna guy!
they have a signal strengh meter to tune it into the best position
Otherwise try rescanning the channels to tune it all back in (with the remote)

Thanks for using FIXYA

I have lost all my freeview channels on my Sony Vaio VGC-VA1,I have tried numerous times to re scan the channels but with no luck,this happened this week end


After the recent retune that all Freeview customers had to do (which failed miserably) this can happen on TV tuners on your pc's aswell.

Try uninstalling the product, and reinstalling, then rescanning. There is a chance this could work.

Lost several stations afyter conversion like al PBS stations. Is there something we can do?


Try rescanning for new channels. Some stations changed their Digital transmitter frequencies when they took their Analog transmitters off air. Rescanning will relocate those transmissions.

Dynex 32" 720 LCD HDTV - no channel listing after run auto scan?


Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:

If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)

To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.

Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

Direct TV ''Program not available'' but should be


Define "Lost." if you manually tune to the channel, whats there. By manually tune I mean punch in the channel number on the remote itself instead of using the guide or channel up/down buttons.

If the channel is there but not on the guide, you have set a custom guide and would need to go into your guide setup to change it back to "All Channels."

If you do not have apicture on the missing channel, reply back with the channel number and the error message at the bottom of the screen.

Cannot keep all channels on tv


When you say you "lose" channels, you probably mean there's no signal there anymore but they are still in the channel memory. This is normal if you have a rotatable antenna. You need to mark the rotator (or just keep a chart nearby) with the heading for each channel.

If you mean you're losing channels from memory when rescanning after turning the antenna, the only solution I can offer is to record the channels found (and their signal levels) after scanning a direction. Then change directions and rescan. See what new channels have been found, what have been lost, or how signal level has changed on common channels. Then you can manually add whatever you need, and you'll know what direction is best for each. It's tedious, but you should only need to do it once.
