Jack :

Hi and welcome to justanswer.
I`m going to help you with your tv but first i will have a few questions;


Are you connected with a cable box/receiver,satellite receiver,digital converter etc ?

Or directly to cable/antenna ?


Could you please lookup your tv`s model number located on the back cover or owner`s manual ?


I will be in standby, just send me a reply ,and i will be notified and be with you ASAP.

Customer:

Yes. all I did was try and change the station with the remote I use to turn the tv on and off. The vizio controller. Im suppose to use the other controller. Now it says no channels in master list.

Jack :

O.k thox ?en that would be yes to the cable b

Jack :

sorry keyboard error

Jack :

Let me try this again

Customer:

yes to cable box

Jack :

O.k then if you look at the tv`s remote, can you see a SOURCE or INPUT button ?

Customer:

can you give me 3 min.? I will be right back..... my 2 yr old just woke up. Be right back

Jack :

No problem, take your time

Customer:

ok im back. on the vizio controller see input on the top left

Jack :

Try to press that button repeatedly until it gets to the cable box input .
If it just opens up a menu of the various inputs then try the different inputs there until you get the one where the cable box is connected.

Customer:

ok did it

Jack :

Working ?

Customer:

it has a list of things.... what do I push on?

Jack :

did you push the input button repeatedly ?

Customer:

no will go dothat

Jack :

o.k

Customer:

Jack :

O.k but you have perhaps to press the center button after selecting a choice , try the one that says cable

Jack :

Or try them all, one of them is for the cable box

Customer:

I pressed comp 1 cable and then it said no signal

Jack :

Jack :

Customer:

Jack :

Customer:
