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,

How do I get back my local channels on my Vizio by rabbit ears


Make sure that you have the TV tuner set up to receive ATSC (digital) signals via "Off Air" or "Antenna". Having it set to the "Cable Ready" mode will only get you Ch 2 - 13. These settings are usually available in set up and may even allow the TV to scan for available channels, etc.

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.

Really? cool... so I have a Panasonic HDTV 720p... just moved, no cable, but I have a TV antenna. Amplified indoor antenna. GE brand model 24700. I powered and connected the coaxial cable between the tv...


You need to go into on screen TV tuner/channel scanning setup page and change the signal source from CABLE to ANTENNA so it will scan again to pick up off the air signals. Please read the TV user manual for more details.
What is the model number of the TV?

Channel Scan on my Philips 26" TV only finds the local channels.


Hi.

you should go into your tv's setup menu and go to the tuner settings and make sure it is set to CATV (cable tv) and not Antenna/Air also splitting a cable to many times can cause the signal to weaken and gain a lot of noise/distortion that could be an issue that can only be solved by having the company come to the house and do a test ALSO when your in the tuner menu in under your tv's setup menu try adding a non local channel manualy and then see if the tv will tune to it, if so then you might have to add them manually at the worst... my guess is that it is not set to CATV/cable tv hope this helps and if not i hope someone else can.

I need to hook up to digital cable


Connect the cable to your TV's antenna input jack. Through the TV setup menu, perform a digital cable search. This is a separate operation from the full channel scan. The TV manual says this may take up to 10 minutes, so be patient. The set should find the channels on your system. When you want to watch TV, press the INPUT button on your remote to select Digital RF as the source. Press INPUT again to select any other source (DVD, etc.) you have connected when you want to watch that.

I was wrong about needing a converter. This TV has a tuner that can pick up the cable channels if they use a system called QAM. Verizon says QAM-capable sets don't need a box for non-scrambled or premium channel, so you should be good once you have the TV scan channels.

I couldn't find the DP26648 manual at Sanyo's site, so my solution is based on the DP26647 manual. They should be similar. You can download the manual here if you don't have the manual for your set.

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.
