Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Hello and Welcome. My name is ***** ***** I'll assist you today. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
Can you please provide details about the issue in your TV?
OK, what is connected to TV for channels, a cable box or antenna and do you use cable remote to change the channels on TV?
OK, have you tried to run Auto Channel Search in Setup menu of TV?
OK, press Menu button to get menu screen, do you get Setup, Video, Audio options there?
If so, select Setup option and find Auto Ch Search option and select it and press OK to run it.
Does TV scan channels?
OK, Auto CH Search will do analog and digital channel search. OM was typo and I corrected it later with OK.
In same Setup menu, please check Input Configuration must be set on Antenna to do auto channel search.
If nothing works and TV goes back to snow that means TV builtin tuner has been defective and unable to process antenna signals, Sorry about this news. It need to replace the main board of TV where tuner box is mounted to resolve the problem and you would need to take the TV in repair shop and spend good money on this repair.
Alternate option is to get 'digital to analog TV converter box' that has builtin tuner, connect the converter box to any AV/HDMI input of TV to get box menu screen and using box remote run the channel search in converter box menu to get available local channels on the TV. Please click following link to choose any 'digital to analog TV converter box' of you choice..

You're welcome. You can keep this TV by hooking digital to analog TV converter box to it which would be available around $30 to $40 in local store. I hope these info will help to make decision about this TV or new replacement TV. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
