My Samsung tv is stuck on channel 7. All other functions

Customer Question

my Samsung tv is stuck on channel 7. All other functions work on the remote except the channels.
JA: Just to clarify, what's the make and model of your tv? And about how old is it?
Customer: Its about one year old--how do I check the make and model?
JA: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?
Customer: No the menu showing all channels does not come up. I'm not sure what you mean all sources and inputs. Its on HDML1
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: Nothing that I know of--I just returned home this week from vacation and cannot change the channel from channel 7.
JA: Anything else you want the TV expert to know before I connect you?

Are you having website difficulties that are preventing you from replying?

Expert:  Mike G. replied 11 months ago.

Not sure why you cannot reply, so I will go with the information given so far.

Since you are on HDMI, this will be an issue with your tv channel provider's box/dvr. Please perform this procedure to reset your provider's box/dvr:

- leave the tv On.

- locate the POWER cord for your provider's box/dvr and unplug it from the wall outlet.

- count to 5 then plug that power cord into the wall.

- observe the tv screen as the provider box/dvr boots up.

- eventually normal operation will return.
