Channel change is slow at taking effect the moment either “Channel up” or “Channel down” button on remote controller is pressed.


1. If digital TV broadcast is received by radio frequency (RF) antenna terminals at the rear of the television, the picture on screen from change of channel might appear after a 1~2 second delay whereas a completely black screen temporarily occupies viewing area.

※ Depending on status of broadcasting signal reception (signal strength), delay time may become longer.

     That is considered normal.

2. When using a set-top box (cable, internet TV or satellite), the time it takes for channel to change can be delayed due to some poor reception status or improper operation of that set-top box. In the case where you believe delay to be quite long therefore out of the ordinary, please contact subscription TV service provider.
