I take it you dont have a remote and your control panel is not working the best fix for this is to go and purchase a cheap universal remote control and program it to your tv this will allow you to change channels

Can't change channels stuck on 4 tried scanning it but it goes back to 4


There could be a few possibilities for this .:
  • Change the "Input" setting on the TV to "AV" or "VIDEO". There is probably an "INPUT" button on the remote.
  • Find the TV/VIDEO mode on your tv or check the back of the cable box where your cables screw into the unit. There is normally a switch to select an output for channel 3 or channel 4. Your's would be on 3. It's just a matter of switching to 4 to make it work on your tv. More info on this here:

Stuck on one channel


Is it the tv's remote? Change the batteries
are you on a cable box? You need to use the providers channel changer. Tv is made to stay on one channel like channel 3 and the cable box runs the different channels.

My tv needs to be on channel 4 but I can't change the channel it's stuck on channel 3 what should I do


Why can you not change the channel? The only way to change channels is either on the TV directly, or from the remote. If neither work then you may need to get a new remote, or a new TV.

Timed recording with cable (new)


If you're referring to programming your VCR for recording, that works just like it did before the cable box was installed, but with two major differences.

The first difference is that the VCR must always be programmed to record on the converter box output channel. Usually this is channel 3, but may also be channel 4. The cable box selects the channel from the cable system, but it's always outputting to your TV on the same channel. That channel is what the VCR needs to record from.

The second change to programmed recording is that you can't program your VCR to record programs on different channels. The reason is because, as mentioned above, the VCR is actually recording from the cable box which is always on the same output channel. Unless you are home to change the channel on the box, you're stuck. For example, if you want to record a show at 10PM on channel 8 and another at 11 on channel 26, those are the cable channel numbers. The box output is channel 3 (or 4) in both cases. The VCR can't switch the box for you. It's only going to record the program on the channel you selected before you left home. You also need to leave the cable box turned on, but the TV can be off. This is probably the thing most people find confusing about dealing with a cable box.

Now having said all that, some brands of cable box do include a timer feature of their own that allows you to program the box to switch channels. This feature is used in conjunction with timer recording on the VCR. You still always program the VCR to record on channel 3 (4), but now the box can be programmed as well to switch to the channel on the system you want to record. This allows you to get around the limitation described above. If your box offers this feature, it will be accessed through its setup menu using the remote control. Ask your cable company if this is available if it's not clear from the setup menus or instructions the installer left you with.
