Question about Televison & Video
First check that the source or input is set to TV (RF) port. Some TVs only have the Source/Input button on the original remote. Others have one among the front panel buttons. If this button isn't on the TV itself and you have an universal remote, you may need to try multiple codes to get the Input/Source button to work properly. Getting the power button to work is often easier.
I hope this helps. Every TV that I've used only displayed the Channel Search when the input was TV. It could be in a Setup menu, under Initial Settings or a Channel menu. Please add a comment with the make and model of the TV for more information on where to find the Input/Source button and the Menu location to for searching for channels. (Note: there was a brief period of HD monitors that were sold as HD-ready TVs. However these units didn't have a tuner. They were meant to be used with a set-top (satellite dish receiver, cable) box.)

If one tv looks good and another one dosent look good or operate correctly then we know for sure that the problem is not the antenna. Now the menu comes up ok because the menu is injected after the tuner into the video curcuit from a osd or microprocessor. sounds like you could have a defective tuner or antenna block assy.

The only way your going to change the video mode is with the original remote. If you need another remote go to http://remotes.com or call 1800 remotes Theres a button on the upper left hand side of the remote called video mode. A universal most of the time will not work this function. You could ask around to your friends and buddies or relitives if anyone has a working Sanyo remote or go to a local retailer that sells Sanyo and see if he would let you borrow one for a little while so you can switch out of the video mode. Good Luck

SOURCE: Stuck on Channel searching!!!
the problem is we have no cable-none at all. The tv is used only for playing DVD's. solution check dvd to tv wire or socket if it is ok then play dvd in another tv if it works fine then problem in tv. for that check tv tuner & its circuit for loose. check tuner itself
