Hello - I can't diagnose your problem from the info given. But what you described is a problem with the tuner, or some other switching problem.
It does not indicate there is anything wrong with your plasma panel.

LCD 42 LG TV won't change channels with channel button only with numbers


First check with fresh batteries. that does not resolve it If a universal remote- try a different code. If original remote, press the "TV" button first to make sure it is using the right parameters. If still not resolved, the issue may reside in the IR circuit of the set.

TV is on one channel and will not work with remote or allow me to change channells from side of tv


I've run into this same issue. Although not a complete fix, I was able to program the tv with a basic universal remote. Try using the Goldstar remote codes. While I'm unable to use the channel buttons, I can change channels manually and turn the tv on/off and use the volume button. Again, not a fix, but a work around for now.

Panasonic viera has flashing channel info in upper left corner


I had this exact same issue just yesterday. Channel info would flash intermittently. While set was in this mode, could not enter menu, change channels, etc. from remote or front panel controls. Similar to tjh492, I thought it might be an overheating issue. But unplugging the Viera and waiting for set to cool made no difference.

I then remembered that this issue popped up the instance I surfed to a particular channel (FWIW, 26-3 "Me Too" on Comcast here in Aurora, Illinois, USA). I had a hunch that there might be an issue with the signal on the channel that prevented the Viera from properly syncing, so I decided to unplug the antenna cable. Once I did that, the channel info displayed steady. I was then able to change channels (of course screen was blank as antenna cable was unplugged) and enter the Viera menu. I immediately went to channel set-up and manually removed channel 26-3 from the channel list. After reconnecting cable, Viera was back to normal. Since I'm not a big fan of "Me Too", problem solved :)

Not sure why a digital channel sync issue would effectively make the Viera remote and front panel controls inoperable. Pure speculation, but it could be that the Viera microprocessor was overloaded trying to sync to channel and this prevented any interrupts from remote or front panel controls.

My Olevia TV will not change channels using the remote or buttons on the TV. When I push the channel up or down button, the tv mutes. It will change to 1 channel using the return button. I have tried...


First thing, check batteries in remote, next make sure there are no obstructions between your remote and your tv. i would then call olevia tech support and describe your problem. sounds like the remote sensor has failed. usually covered under warranty. check with olevia to see if they have a factory wide problem or issue with remotes. persistance pays off in this case so just keep on top of tech support. hope this helps, john.

You need the original remote to change anything in the menus of the set. With a universal remote, you can manualy change the channels, but you cannot sequence them or change any of the setups to have them work automaticaly.

All TV manufactures are like this.

Call the authorized service rep, and order a new remote, or find the original if you want to be able to use your set properly. Don't accept a universal remote, because this will not properly resolve your issue.
