First make sure that the current Source or Input is set to TV. This is usually the only reason for the error message you see. To select the source, look for a Source or Input button on the original remote. If you have an universal remote with a button with the Source/Input label, you may need to try alternative codes to make the button work. (Power and channel controls will often match across multiple codes for the TV manufacturer.) Alternatively, check if there is a Source/Input button on the TV or a section of the menu system with the function. Once you set this source, try again.

Note: there was a period when manufacturers sold some TVs without tuners. They were labeled HD-ready sets. These can't do a channel scan and do not have an RF antenna jack on the set.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your Hitachi TV for more information on setting the source on your set.

SOURCE: Local channel went digital, lost signal.

You need a digital to analog convertor box to recieve the digital signal.

All UHF+VHF signals will be digital starting in June.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated.

SOURCE: cant attain digital channel scan on hitachi rear projection tv

Do you have the tuner locked out for use of HDMI input only?
Most of the time when a selection is not able to be hi-lited it is
because a feature that is activated locks out other selections.
Hope this helps,

SOURCE: Vizio tv dropped a channel, won't rescan

Try with the remote to direct enter the channel number (with the number buttons and or enter) If set makes it there go into menu for option to manually add it to the set memory.

Not likely a problem with your set.

SOURCE: When i click on The channel manager it says this function is not available. I have "no sync" and can't auto scan for channels as that option is in the channel manager.

Some setting or other appears to bave become mixed up. As with tvs malfunctioning with hardware faults please reset to factory
default and setup from scratch. This may remedy the issue.
Then , if the fault persists, try searching for the latest firmware for your set, this might do the trick

Ok This is what I found out and hopefully found your solution..
Have you heard of Double Rescan?
The Federal Communication Comission Designed a Process called double rescan.
Double Rescanning erases and thenreprograms the channels in the converter box an digital TVs memory.
To Double Rescan, you will first need to disconnect the antenna from the converter box or antenna.
Then disconnect the converter and or digital tv power supplies from the wall. Wait a minute before plugging them back in. The antenna should still be disconnected.
With the antenna disconnected run the channel scan function on the coverter box or digital tv. When the scan completes you will have completely removed any channel data the converter box or digital tv, had in its memory.
Now it's time to rescan for real.
Do this by reconnecting the antenna to the converter box or digital tv and running the channel scan function again.
Thus the double rescan is born.
If the double rescan doesn't work, then try some tips and tricks to get your converter box up and running..I will have to look up the url again that has the tips and tricks...
If the double rescan doesn't work let me know and I will look up more options..
I really hope this works..

One station only has lost sound but piture is great. All other channels work fine.


Have you tried retuning the TV? You may need to do a Full Factory Reset tuning rather than just a rescan.

Rescan simply looks at the place holders where the old channels were stored and refreshes them. A Factory Reset (A.K.A. Shipping Condition) wipes the channel memories and starts again fresh.

I just set it up (it is used) and I can't get to the "Channel Manager" in the setup menu, as it is grayed out. I can't auto program because of my inability to access this menu function.


Hi,
Channel menu will be grayed out if tv is set on AV Input, select TV source by remote or press any channel number to set tv on tv source, this will enable channel manager/ menu to tune channels in tv.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks

I have a sony kp-57wv600 57 inch tv. and the channel button does not work. The channel button on the tv and the remote does not work. When I hit the channel button all that happens is the tv flickers but...


The first thing to do is to rescan for channels. If for some reason the channel memory got wiped out, there could be no other "available" channels to change to. The "flicker" you see is the TV changing to the same channel. Try the rescan and update this if that does not resolve the problem. Let's eliminate the simple stuff first. If the rescan DOES resolve the problem, please update this with that information as well and we will try to find out what cleared out the channel memory.


Thanks,
Dan
