SOURCE: TV losing its channel memory
I had the same problem. I replaced the EEPROM marked U33 (it's a 24C32 in a smd package) and the TV worked fine.
BEFORE replacing the EEPROM you have to go into the Service Menu (hold down VOL- and CH+ on the local command) and take a note of all the values, specially the R,G,B gain and R,G,B bias, in the "standard" picture mode as well as in the "Cold" picture as well as in the "Warm" picture mode.
(if you forgot to do this, here are my default values:
R gain: 434
G gain: 482
B gain: 484
R bias: 270
G bias: 270
B bias: 264
then you put the "Cold" image mode and set again those values, increasing the G bias to about 300 and the B bias to about 310.
then put the "Warm" image mode and set again those values, increasing the R bias to about 300 and the G bias to about 280)
The other values such as brightness, contrast etc, have to be left at 50.
I hope this solution will FixYa!

I am happy to help, you will need to attach a antenna to the tv to pick up OTA over the air signals, depending on your location you may be able to use a set of rabbit ears, I have provided a link to a site that will explain in depth.
Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:
If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)
To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.
Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

Do any other OTA channels break up on this TV? Look through your setup options menu for a TV reset (memory or restore default or a similar command) . Do the reset and exit the menus (save the action on most TVs); then return and rescan the OTA channels.
On a different brand of TV this worked. The channel had broken up for several weeks; the reset was used when the channel finally became totally corrupted (no video on one sub-channel, no audio on the other).
Some tuners need a stronger signal to be stable; you may need an amplifier on your antenna.
I hope one of these ideas helps.

Go to menu, channel edit, look for the autoprogram options. Select the autoprogram and let it run completely. Make sure tv is set to CATV and not AIR
