Hello , my name is Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem but first i would have a few questions ;
Is this tv connected to a cable box/converter,satellite receiver,digital converter etc ?
Or directly to antenna/cable from the wall outlet ,no box with its own remote ?
When you say "channel selector" , do you mean remote controller ?

IT'S A LG MOTOROLA TV. THE REMOTE CONTROL DEVICE IS AN ,RCA , MAKE A DIFFERERANCE?
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 3 years ago
O.k then it would have nothing to do with the "channel 18 only"
How do you normally change the channels anyway ?
Is this tv connected to a cable box/converter,satellite receiver,digital converter etc ?
Or directly to antenna/cable from the wall outlet ,no box with its own remote ?
Could you please lookup your tv`s model number located on the back cover ?
Your tv surely must be a LG as Motorola hasn`t made a tv since the early 70`s and then it was quasar/motorola

ok then that would be 2010 or 2011 nd the model would be a 39" with a number that would look like 39LN5300 or 5700 , could you look for such a number ?
