Your scanner has a capacitor-based circuit designed to maintain memory for up to two weeks without power (no battery). Unless you're real handy with electronics and can do the repair yourself, it's not worth fixing. I'm afraid that your choices are to keep it powered up all the time or replace it. If you really like that model you can pick up used 147 or 148 for between $20 and $30 on eBay.

It's not the remote because when we take the batteries out of the remote it is still changing channels, input source!! The channels just keep running just like the input source does. Sometimes stops.

unplug the tv for a few minutes and let reset and cool down when you plug it back in if not reset than internal problem with mother board either short or overheated and popped circuit

TV will not change or show channels

You don't say whether you have had it working at that location before. When you move a TV between houses, it is necessary to retune your channels. Would recommend returning to first time installation.
If you haven't moved it recently there are other reasons why this might happen. 1) There is damage to your aerial caused by weather, 2) A power surge or loss of power to the memory battery on your video board has wiped the frequency information from the memory [the memory battery is like a watch battery that keeps a small amount of power going through the system to it can keep your settings when unplugged], 3) The internal tuner board for your TV has packed in.
If '1' is the case, obviously you need your aerial fixed; if '2' is the case you need to retune again [you'll know if the battery is dead if you have to retune every time you turn on the TV]; if '3' is the case you either need a replacement AV board or someone to solder a replacement tuner board to it.

Some of our fretencies have 7 numbers and the bc147xlt won't allow me to put them all in. can I do something to make it take all 7 numbers or can I skip certain numbers and still get them?

I am also having the same problem. My BC 147XLT will not let me program because most of the frequency numbers are to long. Can I omit certain frequency numbers ?( such as the 000 at the end. ) For example 155.02500 will not fit, and most of my local frequency channel numbers are long......

Help please!

I have a old rca tv. today when I turned the tv on the stations just keep changing and its a static. What could make that happen?

there are a few possibilities. Only two of which you can correct.

First, blow some pressurized air into the remote control, especially around the channel up and down buttons.

Second, see if the channel changing stops when you remove the remote battery.

third, blow compressed air into the channel up and down buttons on the tv.

If you are still have the problem then you have an internal part to replace and we recommend you use our premium service for that.

Good luck.
