I am unable to change the channel from channel 62.1 or 62.2.

Customer Question

I am unable to change the channel from channel 62.1 or 62.2. When I keep pushing the channel rocker button in the remote, the channel just alternates from channel 62.1 to channel 62.2. This all came on suddenly. Also, the picture sometimes just spontaneously "scrambles", even though I know the signal strength from the tower is strong. What can I do?

Sorry, I am at work and I dont have the model number. It is a white, 19 inch Vizeo and that's all I know right now. I may have it at home.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes that model number would be on the back cover and reason for asking it was to lookup the channel search procedure but if you already know how its done then after double checking your antenna and its wiring that is what I would try first .

Otherwise that " scrambles" may point to a defective tuner on the tv .

In that case you can easily get a cheap alternative like a digital tv converter

Here is such a converter , that would go between the tv and antenna and this one even records ;

No, I tend to agree that the tuner is defective. No more information needed. How much will my card be charged? I do not agree to the extra $18.
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 2 years ago

You probably received a phone offer , never mind that , it was automated from the website not me .

Other than that sorry but I am not privy to any of the money matters or subscription or trials etc. etc. not an employee here but an independent tech. that gets paid by this website once you rate me for my help .

By the way , your vizio must be the E190va or E191va model and the main board where the tuner is mounted can be bought for $40 , here is an example ; http://www.shopjimmy.com/vizio-cbpftqbcb2k00802-main-board-for-e190va.htm
