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.)

SOURCE: Picture is snowy on every channel

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.

SOURCE: TV screen on video 2 and remote died

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

How to use an antenna box for more channels


Once the antenna is mounted and connected to the TV then you can go into setup menu and do a channel search. You will be prompted to set it up as CABLE or AIR/ANTENNA. Select ANTENNA and it will program all available channels for you.

I have a new hdtv antenna and my hdtv gets all the local channels except 8. The direction from my house is 171 and that is also channel 4. I get 4 fine but not 8. what's up?


hello,
There would be weak signal reception at your antenna so it can't get the other channel. So change the antenna direction. If there's no result then increase your antennas hieght means keep your antenna at higher position.

Model VR-4625 wont pick up any channels with auto scan


Look to see correctly hooked and that in the menu the set is now not set to catv or cable but to air/antenna. If no antenna connected to set or if just indoor antenna you may not pickup on auto search--try to direct enter a known channel with the remote--if you get one you can in the set menu manually add to the memory the set has.

I know this tv has digital capabilities, so i don't need to get the digital box, what do i need to watch my local channels? i have directv but does not include local channels (ie. fox, abc, nbc).


Hello


To tune the local channels do the following.

1 Press the MENU key on the remote control to
display the Main menu.

2 Use the CURSOR "UP" or "Down"
keys to highlight
Manual Channel Search. Press ENTER.

3 Use the CURSOR "Up" or "Down"
keys to select Cable,
Air (Antenna), or Digital Add-On.

After the search is complete, the HDTV will exit the
menu system and return to normal TV viewing.

IMPORTANT FACT: This HDTV maintains only one database

of digital channels. Therefore, when you search for

cable channels, the database of antenna digital channels

will be deleted. You will only be able to receive those
ClearQAM channels your cable company provides.

NOTE:"Not available" will appear on the screen

when an option is unavailable.

TUNING MODE UNAVAILABLE MENU OPTION(S)

Analog RF Digital Caption

Digital RF None (all Menu options available)

Video 1 Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan

Memory, Digital Caption

Video 2/3 and Manual Channel Search, Channel Scan
HDMI 1/2 Memory, Digital Caption, V-Guide
OK.

Hi I bought a TD930B GPX today and I already listened music on cd, how I can set up to watch TV channels please give me a little tip? thanks


Since the TV has a digital and an analog tuner, you just need to connect to an antenna with the strength to receive your local channels and point the antenna at the station transmitter (or at least close to the correct direction). antennaweb.org and tvfool.com will both provide some information on the available channels in your area. Antennaweb is very conservative in the list it provides (even with the assumption of an external antenna). tvfool will provide information on the antenna that is most likely to work to get a given channel at your location.

Next set the source to TV and use the menu to search for channels. (Digital channels will only be found if the signal strength is sufficient for the tuner to resolve.)

I hope this helps.

You will have to run the Autoprogram menu function from the menu. Here are the steps

Press the MENU button on the remote control.

Use the cursor right to enter the Installation menu.
Select Autoprogram in the Installation menu.
Use the cursor right to enter the Autoprogram menu.
Press the OK button.
Select Cable or Antenna in the Installation mode.
When Antenna is selected, the TV will detect antenna signals and will search for antenna TV (NTSC and ATSC) channels available in your local area.
When Cable is selected, the TV will detect cable company supplied signals and will search for cable TV (NTSC,ATSC, QAM modulated) channels available in your area.
Make sure that registration with your cable TV provider and connection of equipment are completed.
Press the green button “Next” on the remote control.
Press the green button “Start” to start autoprogramming.
The menu screen disappears and the progress of autoprogramming is displayed.The progress bar indicates the number of analog and digital TV channels found. (Also digital channels via CableCARD are being programmed.
When Autoprogramming is complete, a message appears confirming the completion and the TV switches to the first installed TV channel.
