Does the menu come up?

There should be an auto scan, and also a manual add/delete. Please try both and tell me what happens.

can the tv be reset?
Expert:  Jeff the TV Guy replied 7 years ago.
If you unplug the TV for 24 hours, it may loose the channels, but you will still need to do the same steps.
