Westinghouse LTV-19W6 TV Won't change channels

I purchased an Westinghouse LTV-19W6 TV about 5 months ago. Now all the sudden it won't change channels. It stays on the same channel and neither the remote or the buttons on the side will change the channel. What is wrong and can it be fixed? Thanks!

    I have the exact same problem, I dont know exact model number but mine is a 19 inch plasma/lcd

    I have the same problem with that same television. I can only change the channel if I type in the station I want. I cannot change the station on the tv or remote by going up or down. If you find out what is causing this and how much it cost to fix it, please let me know.

    I called Westinghouse and their customer support is non existant. 2 of the the numbers I called are individuals - not Westinghouse. I thought Westinghouse was a good brand name. Maybe I was wrong.

    Same Problem except sometime the volume controls won't work either. It must be a problem with that particular TV model. I've tried some universal remotes..and they also have the same problem. The tv just won't change channels! I've spent 70+ dollars to get it looked at...and they still didn't fix the problem.

An email from Westinghouse that fixed the problem for me.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We apologize for any inconvenience in waiting for our response, but below is what I can suggest to move forward.

It appears all you need to do is run a channel scan on the unit. Once you have run a channel scan, you will be able to scroll through the channels using the channel up and down buttons.

If you have any further questions, you may contact us through email, or by calling us toll-free at 1-866-287-5555, between 9am and 9pm Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Saturday. One of our technicians will
assist you.

I had the same the problem.  My tv would not change channels.  I had to run the tv through my dvd player to be able to view my cable channels.  The one solution listed did work for me.  Set your source to tv...press menu on your remote control...go down to the 4th icon...press the right arrow...move down to CH Auto Scan and press the right arrow.  The tv will scan for channels and once complete I was able to change channels again.

Truetech 10 inch under the counter tv is stuck on channel 2. I need 3. Channel buttons on tv & remote do not change 2 to channel 3. Unplugging, Resetting hasn't worked Any ideas?


Main system control memory IC fault. This is a very small IC; have 8 solder terminals, and can be located very near to the main system control-chroma IC. Check and replace it. Be sure to replace it with the same number printed on it; in all respect. Otherwise, it won't go. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Before replacing it, try a reset to this set, and then check.
There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

I have a 39 inch element tv i cant program the cable channels


Typically you can access the menu, select "tuner" or something similar, make sure you're selected either on CATV or ANT (or similar), then do a channel scan. Should be pretty straightforward. Oh, and make sure you actually HAVE cable. If it's digital cable, you may need an external converter box for it to work.
