Memorex MLT1912: Signal only coming through on two channels

I just bought a Memorex MLT1912 19" HDTV ready television (Dec. 2007). I have a standard Basic Cable connection: no Digital Cable and no HD signal. My source is on "TV," my Setup Source is on "CATV." I do the autoset and the only channels I can get through on the set are 5 (CBS) and 6 (CSPAN-2). Everything else is blue screen and "no signal."

I use another slightly older, presumably non-HDTV-ready LCD TV, an RCA L1510, on the same cable signal; along with my internet connection, and they both work prefectly fine. I don't think it's a signal strength issue; because I tried the Memorex with the other two devices disconnected; and I still only got channels 5 and 6.

Thanks in advance for any feedback!

    Thanks again for your advice, Otacon.

    Unfortunately, I had already tried this at the same time I tried the preset function. Entered each of the 60-70 channels manually, verified the source (TV) and the signal (CATV), verified that the Skip option was set to off: each time on each channel. Did it again this morning, and it still only gave reception for 5 and 6. Everything else is a blue screen with no signal. So I'm pretty close to returning this thing, unless there are other suggestions.

    Thanks again for any additional suggestions,
    Nik P.

Did you try setting and finding the other missing channels manually?

    I see...if you can return it then do it. There is probably something wrong with the tuner. Sorry...if I think of something I will let you ASAP.

How channel 6.1

If your set up on cable, you may need to disconnect your converter.
Hook up direct to cable line. 6.1 would be an anlog channel and you may not be able to receive it with the box connected.

Then go into your menu and run a channel search. Allow the search to complete and review your channels.
