We cannot find our remote control and the TV has channel 4 skipped. We need the TV to be on channel 4 in order to receive the cable signal. Is there anyway to reset the skipped channels without having the remote control?

According to the manual for the Magnavox 14MS2331/17B, you switch to the A/V input by pressing Ch+ or Ch- on either the TV or the remote until you see AV as the current option. (Thus you have to scroll down from Channel 2 or up from Channel 69 for an OTA signal. For cable TV, the AV will be reached by Ch - from channel 1 or Ch + from channel 125.) See page 3 (7 of the PDF) here: http://download.m4c.magnavox.com/files/1/14ms2331_17b/14ms2331_17b_dfu_aen.pdf .
Since it is possible to skip channels by editing the channel list, you may need to check if the AV option has been skipped. To do this, press Menu. Use the up/down buttons to navigate to Install and press the right button to enter this menu. Highlight the Channel Edit line and press the right button to check this. Once in this sub-menu, use the left/right buttons to scroll through the Channel number options (or use Ch+/Ch- to see the stored list). You can also type in a channel number on the remote. Press the down arrow to change to the line that reads Skipped. Use the left/right arrows to change between Yes or No. (No indicates you can reach the channel with the Ch+/Ch- buttons.) Use the Up arrow to return to the channel number line to scroll to other channels. Press Status/Exit to leave the menu system. See page 10 (14 of the PDF) for details.
If you are using an antenna to receive broadcast TV you may have to rescan to add channel 9 back into the TV's channel list. If this does not work, it may be seasonal or a weak signal from your channel 9 broadcaster. I use a signal booster on my antenna (purchased at Radio Shack..)
Hi, This sounds like it is not a problem with the remote, but more like the channels have been "skipped" in the tuning menu of your TV.
To Fix, enter the tuning menu on your TV and set the "skip" or "clear" to OFF for all the channels you want to watch, then the program+ & - buttons should then work for you
Turn the power off to the receiver and let it run its course. It should download a new program guide at this time. Another thing is to make sure you are on ALL SUB on the guide as opposed to a favorite self created guide.Thanks for using Fix Ya.
The easiest will be to make sure that the cable box is on and sending out a signal to Channel 3 and auto-programming the set. Channel 3 is skipped because the last time it was auto-programmed, there was no signal on that channel.
Sounds like you need to go to the main menu and run the automatic channel selector again. It will take note note of which channels are not in use and then skip over them when you use the channel advance. Use your remote to get into the main menu and select the "TV" submenu. Then run the auto channel select. After that's done, you can also manually choose to skip channels you don't like. I believe the channel numbers appear in green if they're to be included, and yellow if they're to be skipped. Even if a channel is skipped, you should be able to get to it anytime by punching in the number on your remote.
