Hello

Welcome

Thanks for the Question

This is a reboot

If you are watching through a satellite or cable box please re-boot the box by un-plugging the box from wallpower waiting 5 mins then re-plugging the box back in again, it would be a good idea to do the same with the TV at the same time

We find that in some cases a software drop-out in the box can lock up the box or the TV

Let me know how this works out please thank you, ***** ***** works out good please could you rate the answer positively with the rating bar that will be with this post thanks again.

Regards

Anthony

I've tried to reboot everything, didn't work. I even tried a box from another tv in the house that was working fine. Still didn't help.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 1 year ago

So you tried another box what happened when you done that?are you saying it was still stuck on last channel?that is odd because the channels COME from the box?

when i tried the other box it was stuck on the channel that box was last one. for example, the first box was stuck on channel 5, the channel i was watching when it went out. when i hooked up the box from another tv it was stuck on the channel that box was last on, like channel 302. can't change channels or do anything except pull up the menu screen. dvd's will play and picture is normal. go back to tv and it is stuck on channel with a gray bar along the top and along the bottom.

But that box then works OK with another set?this is really bizzarre....you see the channels come from the box did you swap the box remote controls too?

You will need to do that because the remote may not be working
