SOURCE: My Olevia TV will not change channels using the remote or buttons

First thing, check batteries in remote, next make sure there are no obstructions between your remote and your tv. i would then call olevia tech support and describe your problem. sounds like the remote sensor has failed. usually covered under warranty. check with olevia to see if they have a factory wide problem or issue with remotes. persistance pays off in this case so just keep on top of tech support. hope this helps, john.

SOURCE: my remote control for my polaroid tv wont change channels.

You may be able to program your cable box remote to control your TV in addition to your cable box. When they initially set up your cable box they probably left a pamphlet giving you instructions on how to program your remote. I'm not sure why you can't change the TV channels manually but this may give you a work-around.

SOURCE: Can't change channel using the remote or buttons on tv

Simple Fix

I had the same problem, couldn't change the channels with the remote or on the side of the TV. This was for a Vizio 37"

Here is the fix:

1. Turn on TV

2. With remote, press the Menu Button

3. Go to Antenna Menu

4. Select Auto Search
Let it search, it could take several minutes. It may not finish to 100%, mine got stuck at 79% for 10 minutes. It's fine if that happens, go ahead and cancel.

5. It should be done, your remote will work perfect along with the TV channel buttons.

SOURCE: tv stuck on channel 2, need channel 3 for

Unplug the tv. Before you do a channel search make sure that you have the converter box plug in and turn on.

How do you get your tv to channel 3 without remote


It Depends on the model but most tv's have a manual button on them that allow you to change channels. If that still doesn't work you may need to do a channel search and then change it to channel three. I will need to know the make/model of your TV to help further.

I just received a Coby TFTV992 9" portable TV. I'm trying to tune the TV channels without success.


1st click the "mode" button on the TV or remote then use the vol. up and down buttons to scroll around until you get to DTV mode then press "enter" on the remote you should get a message "please run channel auto scan" . click "Menu" on the remote the "Picture" screen will come up, keep clicking the vol. up button to scroll past "Audio" then "Setup" then to "Channel" then use the CH up or down buttons to scroll to "Air" click OK , then use the CH down button to scroll to "Scan all channels" then click the vol. up button. it then should start scanning, FYI you have to be fast!

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.

the code that's entered on the remote is the wrong one for the tv. use the instructions for the remote and get the correct code.. for your model or search ebay for the exact remote. also child lock maybe activated on the tv meaning you cant use the buttons on your tv until you use menu on the remote to take it of.

Are you using the cable box remote on the cable box or the coby remote on the cable box? or are you using the cable box remote on the TV or the coby remote on the TV? Try using the coby remote on the TV without the cable box connected first to see if the remote even works on the TV, replace the batteries and retry. then try the cable box remote on the TV to see if you have it set up correctly for that TV. Sometimes when you reprogram a remote to work other devices the buttons won't always end up working the commands that are labled on the remote, also there is more than 1 code that may work better than other codes or may match up with the labeled keys more closely. Low batteries will also make a remote act strangely.make sure the batteries also make good contact on the pins or metal pieces inside the remote. I guess I need more info on which remotes are being used for what purpose before I could give a more certain answer.
