It sounds like the tv isn't finding any channels and that is why it keeps trying to repeat the search. In the cable/antenna input selection in tone setup menu, make sure you have it set up for the correct signal type. If this doesn't work, you may have a bad TV and should take it back to the store before the warranty is up.
I could be wrong, but it sounds like the TV hasn't gone through channel setup. You have to do this in order for the TV to "learn" the channels, assuming you are using cable. If you are using cable run channel search in the setup menu and see if that changes anything. Can you change channels by manually entering in the channel # and hitting enter?
if you have a cable box just plug the cable box into a scart socket on the tv, switch the tv to the scart input and use the cable remote to change channel?Scanning for channels wont find anything because you are receiving the channels on a cable box. If you are refering to standard or digital tv signals and your not receiving any channels then either you are only scanning analogue tv and therefore wont pick up any digital tv channels, or your ariel is inadequate to receive an acceptable digital reception and will need to be upgraded. please state country you are in and what you are expecting to receive
You can go to TV 1 to make sure TV 2 is suppose to be set to channel 60. Did you run the auto setup on your TV? If you have already run the auto setup on your TV, unplug the receiver from the electrical outlet for 10 seconds and then plug it back in. This will make the receiver reboot and re-acquire satellite signal. Then see if you get a picture on your TV 2. If not, the last thing you can try is changing the channel from 60 to 73 through the receiver.
With your DISH remote at TV 1, press the Menu button - Main Menu will display on the TV 1. Then press 6 (System Setup), 1 (Installation), and 5 (Modulator Setup). On the Modulator Setup screen, move over to TV 2 Out and select Cable, then press select on the remote. This will automatically change the channel from 60 to 73. Highlight Done on the right and press select. Cancel out of each screen till you get back to the TV screen. Go to TV 2 and put the TV on channel 73. You should get a picture. I hope this helps.
You either set the options incorrectly when running the "First Time Setup" or you skipped the first time setup entirely. Even though the cable works with your older TV, you still need to setup your new TV correctly to receive the cable feed.
The quickest way to do this is run the setup manually from the menu as follows:
1. Turn the TV on 2. Press the "MENU" button on the remote 3. Use the DOWN arrow key to highlight "SETUP" (the arrows are the big ring button around "OK") 4. Press "OK" to enter the SETUP MENU 5. Use the DOWN arrow key to highlight "PROGRAM CHANNEL" 6. Press "OK" to enter the PROGRAM CHANNEL MENU 7. Use the LEFT/RIGHT arrow key to ensure "CABLE" is highlighted 9. Use the DOWN arrow key to highlight "AUTO" 10. Press "OK" to enter the AUTO SCAN MENU 11. Highlight "ALL CHANNELS" using the UP/DOWN arrows 12. Press "OK" to start the AUTO SCAN
The scan may take several minutes to complete.
13. Highlight "APPLY" using the the LEFT/RIGHT arrow keys. 14. Press "OK" - all of the scanned channels will now be saved.
The TV should now return to viewing mode and you should be able to watch cable on your new TV. If the TV does not automatically exit the menu, simply press the "EXIT" key on the remote, next to the MENU button.
Please run through the above steps and if you are still unable to get the cable channels on your new TV, please post back for further assistance.
