SOURCE: olevia not searching channels

try the following..

Q. Why are the menu settings that I changed not being saved? A. The TV is in Showroom mode. The following steps will help you switch to Home mode.

  1. Press Menu button from the remote,
  2. Press Down arrow key until you see the word Picture, then press the Right arrow key,
  3. Press Down arrow key until you see Mode, then press the Right arrow key,
  4. Press Down arrow key until you see Power Up, then press the Right arrow key,
  5. Press Down arrow key until you see Home, then press the Enter key,
  6. Press Menu button four times to exit out from the OSD Menu.
***Showroom mode is designed for retailers to display the TV and to protect from shoppers changing the settings that are predetermined for shelf display environment.***.

Q. Why does my TV display "No Signal" or "Channel not in List"? A. Channel search needs to run the very first time of use or after the default settings are loaded from the OSD menu. The following steps will guide you through the process.
  1. Press Source button until Tuner is visible on the upper right corner,
  2. Press Menu button from the remote,
  3. Press Down arrow key until you see Setup, then press the Right arrow key,
  4. Press Down arrow key until you see TV, then press the Right arrow key,
  5. Press Down arrow key until you see Auto Channel Search, then press the Right arrow key,
  6. Press Down arrow key until you see Air (for antenna; select Cable if you have cable service), then press the Right arrow key. The scan process will start.
  7. Wait until the process is complete then you will be able to select the channel you like to watch.

SOURCE: I bought an Alba CDVB4 and the remote isn't right

Hi

Not sure if you found the problem for this, but I had the same problem and couldn't find any reference to this except your question so thought I would put up an answer in case it can help you or anyone else.

Aparently, Alba have got hold of the codes that Toshiba use for their remote controls, so if you have a Toshiba telly an Alba product like this won't work. The only solution being to return it and get a different make.

I returned mine twice for a straight exchange thinking it was just a manufacture fault before I found this out. I then exchanged it for a Bush set top box - only a fiver more - and it now works PERFECT!

I hope this helps some.

I have an alba 24”tv and just set up. All fine except when I select guide on tv and select channel pressing ok. I have the sound but no picture it stays on guide screen. If I press source and free view I...

This is a common trait with cheap brands. Alba are a cheap brand for a reason. Supermarket own brands also suffer flaws like this.
Cheaper usually means you lose a lot of functions that make life easier. Take Polaroid a cheap brand for Asda supermarkets. Use one of there TVs and you’ll see the same thing. You can press guide. You don’t get a tv picture in the guide like most more expensive brands. Select a channel. Press ok. Normally your guide would close once you press ok. But on these TVs you have to press ok. Then yet again press guide to close the TV guide to watch the channel.
When you buy cheap the normal practice is you give up silly things and quality that make normal life easier on proper brands like Sony or Samsung.
Some cheaper TVs you’ll also find don’t have a network or Ethernet connection or WiFi. To enable use of software updates. Cheaper TVs normally have to rely on “over the air” updates meaning the update has to be broadcast over UHF the same way your tv channels are. This is very rarely done as the updates can be to large in size.
It’s simply just the design of the tv you have. Cheaper doesn’t always mean better.

My Tv no longer registers a signal from the antenna. I can see a picture thruogh my smart DVR and Chromecast but no pic with TV antenna. I bought a new antenna, still no signal.

Is the TV set to air or cable? It has to be set to air/antenna and a channel search has to be done first before a picture will show.

Tuning in the tv

Most TV's auto search feature will try both the Cable and the Air frequencies, but perhaps yours doesn't. Go to the menu page for tuner setup and make sure it is set on Air (might be called broadcast) and then run the channel search.
Cable channels and Broadcast channels (above channel 12) are not the same frequencies.
Hope Ya Fix It!
