Greetings, My name isXXXXX and I am here to help the best I can. My goal is 100% satisfaction. Let's get started.

James W :

What is the exact model of your TV?

James W :

is the machine doing something wrong now

James W :

Usually if you have reset a TV back to factory, then you must start over as if you just bought the TV Today

James W :

you will need to run the setup and autoprogram to let it search for channels again

James W :

anything that you had programmed in before will be gone

James W :

so grab the owners manual and start over as if you just bought the TV Today

James W :

you may want to turn the TV off for a couple of minutes to let it reset

James W :

then Turn it back on and start the setup process again

I don't have the owners manual... in storage with most of my stuf. That's what I was looking for online, a manual, but when you said "you will need to run the setup and autoprogram to let it search for channels again" the light bulb came on. Back to where I was before I hit the factory reset button. Thank you.

i am glad you had sucess.. Please hit accept so I can get paid..

 

Do you have any other questions other than needing an owners manual?

 

If you supply me the exact model number, I may also be able to supply you an owners manual..

 

Thanks
