The aim of this site is to help the many people who find they need to tune their TV, but no longer have the User Guide or Instruction Manual. A common misconception is that buying a new remote control will also bring with it a User Guide/ Operating Manual containing TV Tuning and operating instructions. Unfortunately this is not the case as the User Guide is for the TV not the remote, and the same remote may be used on more than one model of TV, with different operating instructions.

A lot of people also find that they have purchased a universal remote control and then find that they are unable to tune the set. This is because 99% of universals will only provide the basic functions of channel and volume changing.

What is required is a Genuine or Direct Replacement remote control and we recommend looking here.

A lot of the advice given on this site may also be useful for those who need to tune their videos as well.

 

Although your specific model may not be listed, do not give up hope, the tuning principles used are often common, even between manufacturers and may provide you with clues on how to tune your set.

The following tuning points may prove useful;-

  • Tuning is often contained within an INSTALL menu, separate to the Menu for all the other features

  • Tuning features are sometimes accessed by holding down the coloured keys on the remote control for 5 seconds or so

  • other keys on the remote control sometimes used to access TV Tuning are an open and closed diamond (Philips TVs for example), a rectangle divided into 1/3 and 2/3 by a vertical line, "F" function key, pressing and holding the menu key and numerous others.

     

Storing and tuning TV channels
(a common procedure used by different makes)

1) Press Auto Store on the TV. All the channels will be found but have the wrong number
2) Rename the channels by

  • pressing the store button on the TV (red “store”will appear on screen)

  • pressing the page minus button to create two dashes for channel number on the remote control

  • type the channel number using the remote control keypad

  • pressing “store” again (green “store” will appear on the screen)

3) Don’t touch anything, when the word “store disappears”, it is done.

Clear unwanted channels by following the same procedure but using the clear button rather than the store button.

Make sure that you also tune in the VCR channel. Play a video so you can find and rename it.

Alternatively :-

  1. Press the number of the channel you want to tune on the remote control.

  2. Press the fine tune + or – button and let channels tune in and out until you get to the one that matches what you have chosen on the remote control.

  3. Press store. The word should appear on the tv screen.

  4. Type the channel number on the remote, it should appear on the screen.

  5. Press store again. Wait. When it disappears from the screen, it’s done.

Although every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the tuning information provided, no warranty either expressed or implied is given.
