by meamlarry / December 10, 2009 5:36 AM PST

Please can someone help me, I am trying to delete unwanted channels from my samsung LE37 TV but cannot do it..! I think it may be because they are on the built in freeview and its DVT but there must be a way....SURELY!!!!??? I have read the manual cover to cover but everything keeps saying 'unavailable on DTV or external input mode'
Very frustrating - any help much appreciated!

Deleting channels

In one of the channel lists, I think the Tools button gives the option to delete the selected channel(s). I find, though, that they re-appear in the list afer a short while. Let me know how you get on.

Thanks for your reply, no luck I'm afraid. That doesn't work at all, there are no options anywhere to delete anything - its so frustrating!! I think its because its on digital rather than analogue. Not sure. Its driving me crazy not being able to delete channels!!!! there must be a way.
Can anyone help....... please.......!!

Which model

You didn't say which model you have. "LE37" just means it's a European model with 37" screen. It's the next bit that's significant - A or B plus 3 digits.

Do you have a CH LIST button? That should bring up the channels, with an option to list favourite or all channels. If there's no option to delete, then you could use favourites list instead of all channels, or else change the numbers to sort them in desired order.

I do have a channel list yes, but there is no option to delete. I am unsure how to change the channel numbers? I have sorted them into favorites but the other channels that I dont want are still there - I really want to just delete them totally.
If you know how to change the numbers that would be a help?
Thanks so much.

You have the option to delete channels if you're on the channels list and press the Tools button. That will expand a submenu with 4 or 5 choices.

Same problem - different solution!
by theshowbizkid / July 31, 2011 12:15 PM PDT

I had the same problem. I think our remotes (and probably TV models) are different to the other users who have posted responses to this problem.

However, I figured it out.

1. On the remote hit menu
2. Scroll down to the satellite dish icon (3rd in the list)
3. Enter this menu and scroll down to Channel Manager
4. Enter the Channel Manager menu and select the unwanted channels using the yellow "C" button
5. With the unwanted channels selected, hit the Tools button on the remote. In the pop-up window scroll down to delete...
6. Select delete etc.

Got to Emanual instructions
by wmshprd / December 10, 2011 11:45 AM PST

I chatted with samsung on samsung .com, they say to go to Emanual pages 10-15; you have to go into the smarttv function first and to channels to edit from there...
