Your tv is tuning locked. Go to menu and get the tuning lock function by pressing PR+,PR- keys. Reach to the tuning menu by the help of Vol+, Vol- keys. Select the tuning lock fumction, and turn it to 'off' .

Channel setup


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.

Dont know how to channel search with remote


Do these steps using the remote: Power TV on. Press Input button and < or > to be sure you're looking at TV and not HDMI1 or something. Press Menu button and > to the 4th (I think) menu, where top two items are: Tuner Mode and Auto Scan. You ought to be able to start an auto scan with those. It takes a while, maybe ten minutes to finish, so be patient.

Technika 15.4'' tv/dvd can't find antenna that is plugged in


When almost all TV stations went digital, analog TV signals received via an antenna all but disappeared in the United States. So you will not be able to get much, if anything at all without a digital TV connected to a cable system or a satellite system. Welcome to the new economy! You want it? You will PAY for it! Radio (first FM, then AM) will most likely be the next casualty of the new economy!

What is your TV input connection? Are you using Antenna? Cable? Dish?

The Unusable Signal sounds like the TV is not getting a signal. Does your TV have a built in HD Tuner?

If you are using Antenna you might want to try setting up the connections and it should search for quality channels that you get good signal strength. If you are on channel 2 and there is no over the air channel 2 it may say "unusable signal".

Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv


Simple Fix

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

Here is the fix:

1. Turn on TV

2. With remote, press the Menu Button

3. Go to Antenna Menu

4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.

There are three ways you can connect a DVD player to a TV. Component video gives the best picture quality, but requires 3 cables for the video signal alone. S-video needs only 1 cable but it isn’t as good as component video. Composite video is the easiest connection to make, but gives the lowest picture quality.
