Question about Insignia 42" LCD Flat-Panel HDTV

1 Answer

No digital channels

The cable company just updated the channel line-up, so I had to re-scan the channel set-up. One TV, a Dynex, found all the analog and digital channels at their new locations. Another similar TV, a 26" Insignia, no longer finds the digital channels. Even manually setting the channels, they are not there. Nothing else has changed...

How do I change Channel default on start up

Use your remote. Press menu and look up initial set up or reset to factory settings.
* Note that as of Jan 2018 most cable companies do not provide analog outputs to TV sets. If your still using Channel 3 for an input to your TV then it won't work or will stop working some time this year.
* Hook up your TV using the old RCA video/audio jacks; Yellow plug is video, Red is audio right, White is audio left.
* You can also use an HDMI cable (best) for High Def picture which is all the rage for HD TV.
* You may also connect using the DVD style cable hook up which uses 4-5 separate cables (3 for colors and 2 for audio)
* Once you have some sort of video or message on the TV screen then you can proceed to setting up the cable box. Have the cable box hooked up and on for at least 15 mins. Look at the cable box display till the correct time is displayed. Power up the cable box till you see the power on indicator. Now use your TV remote to select the correct input you hooked your cables t. (probably HDMI) The display should show you your cable service. Now use the cable remote to select your channel.
* If you don't have a cable box but still have digital service (usually called basic cable - no premium) then use the analog/digital input on the TV remote and select initial set up. There should be an automatic channel search and set up to scan all the channels available on the line your connected to. This will take up to 15mins. If you know the specific channel you can cancel the scan and pick each channel for you own list. Letting the scan run may help you find other channels you are unaware of.
* Final; if your still having problems then call you TV MFR support line and they will talk you through to check your set.
* You can also check the cable company support line if the TV check out okay. The cable company may or may not be able to supply you service for really old Tube style TV sets as most if not all TV's are digital now.

ON CHANNEL SELECT WE HAVE TO PUSH 3 NUMBERS IN ON REMOTE CONTROL INSTEAD OF 2. EX. CHANNEL 72 MUST BE PUSHED IN AS 72-1. IS THERE ANY WAY TO CORRECT THIS PROBLEM ON THE REMOTE CONTROL SO WE DO NOT HAVE...

Sounds like you need to do a channel scan. This would be found under the Menu and then channel setup. If there is an option for scanning for digital or analog channels, just scan for analog. Channels with a dash are usually a digital station. If you really want to get digital or HD channels, I would recommend getting the HD box from your cable company and use the HDMI or Component connections.

How do i cahange my reception From analog to digital?

The Dynex LCD-19-09 19in LCD Tv has a digitial tuner in it already. I would recommend doing a channel scan and make sure it is on the "Antenna" setting instead of "Cable" and let it scan for channels. You will see all the analog channels like "7", "12" if they are still broadcasting, however, if you can pick up the digital channels, it will look more like "7-1" or 12-1; 12-2 etc.". To get to this, push the "Menu" button on the Dynex remote, then arrow down twice to TV, then push the right arrow and make sure it is set at Antenna and do a channel scan. Should get you whatever digital channels are available. If the digital antenna is not strong enough, you will need to get the digital one at Wal-Mart as previously suggested and hope that will convert the analog channels in your area.
