How do I reset...

How do I reset my TV to channel 4 this is an old TV and don't have remote anymore

Technician's Assistant: What is the model of your TV?

I will have to check

Technician's Assistant: What menu options can you access, if any?

I press on the left side and it goes through the channels, but it always stops on channel 3 and it has to be on 4

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

It's a really old TV

No

No ??

If you received a $26 phone offer or any offers they are automated by the website ,NOT BY ME , I`m an independent tech. and have no control over those
They are optional and you can just ignore them if you don`t want it .

Tv has to be on 4
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 7 months ago

Look at the back of the box and see if there is a selector switch that say 3 and 4 on either sides , switch it to 3 if there is one

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 7 months ago

TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 7 months ago

OK just saw the rng number , give me a minute on this

Ask Your Own TV Question
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 7 months ago

Doesn`t say how to switch it to channel 3

Does your tv have audio/video inputs ?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I think so but I can’t get to it
TV Technician: Jack, Technician replied 7 months ago

Well , if you can`t give me the TV's model number where I could perhaps guide you through a channel search then you second best bet would be to use an audio/video cable which would give you a better picture anyway then look on your tv for a button called INPUT , press that and set it to that AV input

No more need for channel 4 then
