Re: Need channels reset
If you do not have a replacement remote and their is no menu button on the tv then you will have to do a hard reset.
To do this you will have to unplug your tv and all connecting components until such time that the tv is reset. You will know it is reset when the tv asks you when you turn it on to run a channel program.

Hey cthaemar, it sounds like it may have been switched off the correct channel. If it is hooked up with a Coaxial cable it will be on channel 3 or 4, and if it is hooked up with an AV cable then it would be on one of the inputs.
If it's channel 3 or 4 try pressing the gray TV button on the remote and changing the channel. If that doesn't work you may need to use the TV's remote or the TV itself.
If it's on an input press the same gray TV button and then try pressing Input. With this you can also try the TV remote or the TV itself to change those if our remote doesn't change it.
Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!
You will need to program it to your cable box to change channels. Remember, the channels in your tv are coming from your box, so if the remote can't control the box, you won't be able to change channels. Call charter for help on programming remote to cable box.
Hi are you running it off of an antenna or cable? Assuming you have a digital tuner and are selecting the proper type of channel search Ie: cable or air it could be that the tv needs a firmware update to the tuner.
I have experienced similar issues with several TV's I had an Olevia 37" HDTV that required a firmware update to get the tuner to properly decode channels.
I also have seen lots of cases were people have cable hooked up without a cable box and receive "mixed" channels.
I currently have Comcast and have 6 TV's hooked up 3 with cable boxes and 3 directly off the line. According to Comcast I should not be getting anything besides "basic" channels without a box but using the digital tuner in the TV's does pickup most of the channels and even some HD channels that are not there using their boxes.
Interestingly enough none of the TV's tuners decode the channels into the same "channel." As an example HGTV on 1 TV shows up as 84.4 but then 86.1 on the second and something like 84.11 on the third.
My recommendation run the auto program again then go through channel by channel and see if anything needs to be manually entered or deleted. I know this is a pain in the **** and takes about 20 minutes per TV but hopefully that will tell you if your TV tuner is relocating the channels to another channel.
Lastly if your tuner is not digital or if the tuner can't be updated you may have to use a secondary tuner such as one in a VCR to get the channels you desire.
This whole Digital Conversion that we have undergone has brought to light for me at least that our government and corporations don't care about the real world impact on the ordinary person.
Sure they made money on reallocating bandwidth and sure tons of new HDTV's and digital products (including digital cable) have been sold but I haven't come across anyone who feels they have benefited from the conversion forced upon us.
