my computer won't load from that link
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Its the vizio site and is the manual for the set, you will need to wait 5 mins or more for the manual to download

I got the manual on the tv I am using. It says to go to the channels listing and do the digital and use English
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Is that page 38 in the manual you have?

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

Because if its not 38 you have the wrong manual

I don't have the same listing as this page. What do you mean by Channels Menu? I don't see one.
TV Technician: Anthony_Infotech, Technician replied 2 years ago

I have not mentioned a channels menu, start by reading the document from the beginning I can assure you this is the manual for your set what does it say on the front of YOUR manual for the model number?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The manual page from my TV is the same as the one you sent, but the setting on my TV don't match what it is saying.

Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, please determine if the TV is directly connected to an antenna or a cable feed. Or is there a cable box or satellite receiver used with it. Based on this:

  • • if directly connected to an antenna or cable feed, then settings would have to be changed in the TV itself;
  • • if connected to a cable box or satellite receiver, then settings would have to be changed in the cable box or satellite receiver.
