The up/down button is worn out (guys do this, since we love to channel surf). Keep the original
remote that came with the TV (they're invaluable), but buy a cheap universal replacement remote
(I got my last one at Dollar General for $8), program it for your TV, and surf with that - you'll
get power ON/OFF, channel up/down, and volume control from any universal remote.

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.

My remote doesn't work, it won't change the channels


It sounds like the remote would need to be address to the receiver. This needs to be done from the main TV location, and I have listed the steps below!

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

Hope that helps!

How do I change the channel on the Digitech DC-1005 walkie talkie? THanks


Looking everywhere online for an instruction manual for my little green and yellow walkie talkies ( Digitech dc-1003) without luck, so I had to work it out for myself.
The first button with the circle with line though it is the on/off button but it is also the channel select button. Hold it down for 2 secs to turn it on or off, OR press it once to be able to choose channels (the flashing number can be changed using the triangle up and triangle down buttons). Once you've chosen your channel, press the on/off button to select Hi or Lo frequency then press on/off button a third time to save. If you don't want the annoying static that sometimes comes, press the on/off button a fourth time for the squelch function (saves batteries and eliminates annoying hiss).
The next button is "S" which is the scan button. Hold it down to start scanning through all channels to try to pick up a transmission (we found a conversation between two fishermen today). When it finds a transmission, it will pause to let you see the channel number then continue. Hold down "S" button again to go back to original channel.
Next button "C" is the Call button. Pressing this button transmits a beeping alert to people on the same frequency/channel to let them know you are about to transmit a message.
The trangle up and triangle down buttons control the volume or select channels (as mentioned above).
Hope this helps. :)

How do I unlock channels (pro-2055)


the unlock command is done from the manual mode.

If you scanner is in the scan mode, push the "MANUAL"button to stop the scanning feature.

Next you need to go to the channel you want to unlock. If you are only a few channels away, while in the manual mode, push the up or down arrows to step (one push per channel to be stepped though) to the channel to be unlocked.

A direct method is to enter the channel number on the keypad and then push the "manual" button. The display should show the channel you desire.

If the channel lockout is on, the second line on the display will show "LO+". Push the keypad button marked "L/OUT" once. The "LO+" should change on the display from uppercase to a lowercase "lo+". The channel is now unlocked.
