Question about Durabrand DU1301 TV

1 Answer

I lost my instruction manual and can only get local, non cable channels.

The TV is connected to cable, but I pushed some button, which one I don't know, and now all I can get are local channels. Is there somewhere on line where I can download a guide for this 2005 TV? [I get a lot of snow and "Text Ch 1" as the message]

Sincerely,

Use a panasonic tv/vcr combo in my kids room, lost remote long ago. Never had any issues and then suddenly this popped up: CHANNEL/CLOCK AUTO SET Connect antenna cable and if you use a cable box, tune it...


Try unplugging the unit, and leaving it unplugged for a while. Also, press all the buttons while it is unplugged..

It is possible - hopefully - that doing so will "wipe" all the ongoing processes "away", and you'll get back to normal operation.

It is a crude form of "rebooting", and it does indeed work for many different devices. Just unplug it for 30 minutes

My tv says no signal on one channel, how do i get that channel back ?


If you are getting an OTA signal, you should check your antenna, any amplifier or splitter and the station's status. The "No signal" message indicates that the signal is not strong enough to be resolved by the tuner.

1) Is your antenna pointing in the correct direction? Outdoor antennas can sometimes turn in the wind. Reset the antenna to the correct direction.

2) If you have a splitter dividing the signal between TVs or other devices, try a direct connection to the one TV that isn't receiving the channel. Similarly, if you have an amplifier in the system, try using the antenna without it. (I have seen an amplifier become a filter for select channels when damaged.) The only solution is to replace the device or omit it. (In my case, some channels require amplification; thus we replaced the amplifier.)

3) Has the station's local transmitter/repeater been damaged? Check their news feed. Towers fall and transmitter components can fail.

You could try and see if another tuner picks up the signal. Some low end tuners are more sensitive to signal strength. If you are getting the station from another source, check with the provider. We recently lost some of the local PBS stations due to problems with the cable provider's feed. Only one TV is connected to the set top box.

I hope this helps.

TV Stuck on 1 channel


We would be happy to help get that fixed right away. The first thing we want to ensure is that all connected equipment is on. We want to then check what type of cable was used to connect the TV to the receiver. If you are using a Coax Cable to connect the receiver to TV1, check the receiver's back panel for the output name. If your receiver has a "TV CH 3/4 out": Tune TV to channel 3 or channel 4, back if it is labeled "Home Distribution": Tune TV to channel 62 or 75. If using non-Coax (RCA, Component, or HDMI) to connect receiver to TV1, cycle through the inputs until picture appears; Most TVs have a "TV/Video", "Input", or "Source" button. If we are still not getting a picture then unplug receiver for 10 seconds then plug it back in, this will reset the receiver, then try cycling the inputs again.


We hope these steps resolve the issue. We want to thank you for being a valued DISH Network customer!

I just bought a 19av615db, located in Ireland. how do I set up? Not connecting it to sky or anything,just want to get local channels for now?


If you are in Nothern Ireland you will need a UHF antenna, and Republic Ireland you will need VHF and UHF antenna to recieve off the air signals.
Connect the antenna to the back of the TV. Turn the TV on, select "menu" button on your remote and slect TV from TV/Cable menu press enter, go to main menu and select channel set up menu and select auto channel button and when finished press menu button, check your user manual for details.

You need the original remote controller to be able to switch input modes.Universal ones usually don't work. If you don't have the original remote and can't find it ever or if it is too expensive you can buy an rf modulator ( very cheap) and connect your dvd player, game console etc) to the modulator then connect the modulator to your antenna with a coax cable. This worked for me. It placed the connection to channel 4 and other cable channels are still working,

You can buy the RF Modulator from: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180299245670

Sounds like it lost programing, if it has an "auto program" feature try that, or some older models need it to be done manualy and have a "add/erase" feature, instructions for that should be in your owner's manual.

Connecting my tv and vcr so i can use the vcr remote control


You can always push "03" on a universal remote programmed to work your TV. A better solution is to connect the devices properly. You shouldn't use the tuner inputs for a VCR/DVD player, or you will get a poorer picture and no stereo sound. See the instruction manual for your player and TV. Use a stereo audio/video cable to connect them and select the proper input. The instructions will hopefully clarify this.
