This is simple: set in the closed caption menu (some cable boxes also have it) called TEXT. Look in the menu and turn it off first in the set and also in the box used if used for signal.

Odd feature and never really took off--designed so some channels like PBS etc could broadcast text.

Please let me know the model no. of your unit. Also, does the symptoms is the same to all inputs?


Proton Televison... | 39 views | 0 helpful votes


I am Sorry to Hear regarding the Problem. Unplug the Unit for Few Minutes, say 15 Minutes and then Turn it ON. Do you still see the Problem?

Have you tried to Run DVD Player. If not Use it and Check, if that is still the Case?

If Yes, this is an Internal Failure and You need to Open the TV to get it Resolved.If you wish, you could Contact a Local TV Repairman to get it Resolved or let me know the Make and Model and i would be able to Guide you.

Make sure to take all the Precautions and all the Security Measures.Also, tell me How Old the Unit is?

Make sure that you need to have Tools like Multimeter and Magnifying Glass and you need to have the Schematics ( We could also Search for Cost effective Service Manual, if that is available with any Vendor ).

Let me know,so that we could Proceed.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

There is no Point in getting the Remote repaired as the cost of Repair would be much more than the new remote. Yes, Original Remote is not available.The substitute remote is :-

Is that the same one you purchased? Have you programed it correctly?

It could be an issue with the TV. The IR sensor which senses the signal from the remote might be Defective.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

The following Astron LED 32 TV was advertised with built-in Netflix capability.

Changes in Netflix rendered current software versions incompatible with older sets. And here is a reference regard some 2010-2011 Samsungs being incompatible:

If your Astron's support is unavailable, an alternative is to try casting from your mobile device to the TV.

First, make sure that the source is set to TV. (Use the TV button at the top left of the remote to ensure that the TV is being controlled by the remote. The Source button is the one to the right of the Power button on the remote. It's the top button on the side of the TV. ) Next press Menu. (On the remote, it's the button to the upper left of the arrow keys. It's the second button from the top on the TV side panel.) Use the Up/Down arrow keys to navigate to Channel. Press Enter. (Note: the channel buttons at the bottom of the side panel buttons match the Up/Down arrows of the remote. The Source button on the TV is the Enter key.) Press Enter again and use the Up/Down arrow keys to highlight your country. Press Enter. Navigate to Auto Store and press Enter twice. Wait for the TV to go through the channels and test for signal.

You can also add channels manually by using the Manual Store option. If you know the channel number, you would then choose Channel and select C (over-the-air) or S (cable) and then the Right arrow key. Use the arrow keys to highlight the desired channel. Press Enter. Use the arrow keys to select Store and press Enter again. Otherwise choose Search. Use the Up/Down arrows to select a channel. Press Enter, go to Store and press Enter again. Repeat this for each channel.

The manual for the LE26R73BD is available on the support page: . The current link to the manual is

I hope this helps. If you use a set top box with a non-RF coaxial cable output to the TV, the channel option will not be available.
