Hello Han01, I am going to assume that you have a good RF signal coming in and that the four terrestrial channels are coming in clearly. Normally I would use a VA62 or a VA62A to inject a signal at the proper input voltage of off air RF about 1000uv down to 500uv. Injecting the signal will allow you to test if the TV can lock on to the signal and capture and store it. If it can then your issue is with the signal level coming into the TV set from the antenna. If not, then your problem is the sensitivity of your RF tunner which would indicate a possible RF input/amplifier issue. If it is the actual tuner, I would then suggest getting a OEM replacement for your tuner, I have repaired 6 tuners in my 25 years of TV experience and every time I finished the job I vowed I would never do that again. Finally one day I purchased an OEM tuner replacement and I have not repaired a tuner since (It's good academic work, but not worth the time, if time is money). If the tuner is not the problem then the issue may be the chip which stores the channel in memory. This can be checked with a multimeter or an oscilloscope (data pulses and truth tables will be used here). In any event. If you do not have any of the equipment I mentioned, and do not have electronics experience, I would suggest taking your VCR to a TV repair shop, since these measurements are very critical in the analysis of your problem.

Hi Denzel, if it's anything like my unit you will need to make sure that the TV receiver is tuned to the VCR. Depending on make and age this will often be a blue screen.

I am trying to reprogram the channels available on an Orion TV VCR/VHS combo without a remote and no menu button on this device's face for access

It is impossible to make an auto tune function to this TV without its remote control, as there is no Menu button on its front panel. OK.

I have the Orion 076L052040 19", i am trying to search for channels and save them, but i can only search and watch them but i am never able to save them.

If channels are not stored during autoprogram mode, your TVs system memory has sopped functioning. Now you can see the tuned programme, but it cannot be got it saved.
During autoprogramme mode, different channels transmitting at different frequencies at that time, will be tuned by the tuning contol Ic, and each or them will be stored in its outer memory position as voltage logics. The tuning Ic and the memory Ics are two. Memory Ic, in most of the sets will be a small one consists of 8 pins, and can be located very near to the main Ic.
You yoursef can replace it. Look for this ic and resolder it out from the main printed circuit board, go for the same type and number replace it. There is only 8 soldering points are to be desoldered and to resolder. All four pins in one side of that Ic will be connected to earth, that is negatve supply rail. Only four of them are active, and among the one will be always left free in most sets. Ok.
Take all precautions while we work with an electrical equipement. Keep children away from you, and not even allow them to come beside you while you are working. Let an adult be beside you as a precautionary measure.

Unable to Tune TV to Sky + RF output


The problem is that the modulator output frequency of your sky box is exactly the same as for example chanel 5 on your terestrial aerial.
You need to change this number to a different one thats clear of local terestrial transmissions

1) Select the Services button on your Sky or Sky+ remote control.

2) Type in 401 [select] on your key pad and you will get to the installer menu. You cant gain access to this via the drop down menu as it is designed for the Sky Engineer to use.

Select Option 4 to configure the RF outlets on your Sky Digibox.

4) The option RF Chanel Number change this number from example 35 to 60 .
You may need to do this using other numbers 26 34 55 etc
Every time you alter the number store it then try & tune TV to sky.
Any other sets in the house connected by RF leads will require retuning for sky.
Save new settings and you should find that your RF outlet to TV works fine.
