To see if the problem is with your remote control, go to the receiver and use the channel up/down buttons on the receiver itself. If you can change your channels with the buttons on the receiver, the batteries in your remote control probably need to be changed.

If you can't change channels from the receiver, turn off the receiver. Then unplug it for at least 15 seconds. Plug the receiver back it and turn it on. Again, try changing channels from the receiver itself.

Tune to a channel, and while programming is playing, try tuning to the missing channel by entering the channel number on the remote control keypad to see if channels change. Do not try to select the channel from a channel list, program guide, or favorites list.

If this approach takes you to the correct channel, you need to adjust your favorites list function. Press the "guide" button on your remote. Look for a button on your remote called "fav" or "list." Press it several times and watch for an indication at the top of the guide that you are moving from "all channels" to a particular favorites list.

If you are locked on one channel only, your Channel Lock feature is likely active. Consult your owner's manual to unlock the rest of your channels. See your owner's manual for information on managing favorite channel lists and locking out channels. Enter your password, if necessary.

Channels wont unlock it is locked on 18 even though it is only a 14 channel radio


It might be possible your number 18 is the interference eliminator code. Your radio may be stuck in programming mode which would be caused by one of the buttons being stuck or the tactile switch behind it on the component board being faulty.

Best regards.

My westing hous hdtv is stuck on channel 35-3 and will not switch to another channel, the remote doesn't work and neither do the buttons on the side of the tv, the power button works but won't


Try to unplug power from set for a while and plug back to reboot--immediately delete that channel from the set's memory as it may contain signal that is causing this.

Also look to see if the set has a feature to lock out the buttons and or the remote control---a few do.

Most likely something in the signal for that set caused the set to lock up.

Cant change channels with remote or side of tv - sound works fine . stuck on espn - no other channels work (i quess being stuck on espn is fine but this is an office tv for thr girls while they are eating...


Your TV is most likely locked to that station because it doesn't have any other channels programmed in.

In the menu for the TV, run a channel scan. This will take probably 30-45 minutes for most TVs and will program the available channels into the TV so that they become available.

MY RADIOSHACK NASCAR PRO-84 SCANS THREW CHANNELS BUT STAYS STUCK ON ONE CERTAIN WEATHER CHANNEL AND WONT CONTINUE SCANNING AND I NEED TO NO HOW TO DELETE THAT CHANNEL COMPLETELY.


The NOAA weather frequencies have constant broadcasts, so your scanner "locks" onto them. The only ways to prevent this are to either delete the weather frequency or lock it out. To delete, just program the frequency "0.0" (zero point zero) into the channel. To lock it out, press the L/O key while on the weather freq.

Menu will not come up. Channel will not change. No remote.


brendee89,
I did not get who the manufacture was of the tv but you may want to see if one or more of
the menue buttons are stuck down on the tv's front panel. This has been a common cause of
problems with Mitsubishi and Sony tv's. It could also cause volume to go up by it's self, no menue
functions, no power up and or no remote control functions to work.
Hope this helps,
Skyman

Get gets stuck on 3 and 5


Probably picking up an open mic like a baby monitor or something like that, you may have to lock out those channels or re- program them.

TV locked on channel 3 and have no remote


Thats EXACTLY what happened to our tv!

Ours was originally locked on channel 4 but I left it unplugged overnight and now its oddly stuck on channel 3.

The only thing I can think of to do is try to search for/buy a remote that will work on the tv to bring the menu up again. I don't know how to manually reset it or do anything.

Toshiba 32A12 stuck on channel 9


Try to browse on its menu. Look for channel lock or re-enable it. Other way of parental lock, I use to do that before if I want to stick to one channel and discourage other to use it for that day/time. Only that it is on different brand.

It's possible that V-chip is locked.. Go to the menu and see if the lock option is active... The backdoor password is 0-7-1-1 twice.. Entering it the first time, if it times out, will display "incorrect" just enter it again and it should ask you for a new password..
If that's not it let me know and we'll try a couple other things.
