[TV] No Channels are Found



No Channels are Found



The process for obtaining channels is fairly simple.

This is normally accomplished by completing a channel scan.

An important thing to note is that the channel structure of an LG Television

is broken down into 4 parts (DTV, TV, CADTV, CATV).

The channels will only be displayed together within the tuner the TV is currently on.


For example :


The TV will run through all CADTV stations before it begins to go through CATV stations.

This means the TV could cycle through channels between 2 and 79 on the CADTV tuner,

then jump back to channel 2 to begin going through the CATV tuner.

It is important to know which tuner the TV is currently using to display the channel.

This can be determined by pressing the ‘Info” or ‘Enter’ button on the LG remote controller.


Check the Connection Type


In order for your TV to find any stations,

you must first be using the TV’s tuner and not a cable box.

If a cable box is used,

you will need to contact your cable or satellite service provider for further assistance.

If you are using a coaxial connection directly from the wall to the television,

ensure the cable is tightly and securely connected to both the TV and the wall.

You will also need to ensure the television is tuned to channel 3 or 4 to receive the stations.


Perform a Channel Scan


A channel scan is necessary when using antenna or basic cable from the wall.

When a cable / satellite box is used, the TV’s tuner is not in use and will not locate any channels.

Be sure the antenna or cable is connected directly to the back of the television.
