Question about Element Electronics Televison & Video
When you hook the tv up, it has an auto tune selector that goes through the channels. There is no channel 3 in my area. Now I have a cable box and need the tv to tune to channel 3 before I change the input to HDMI 1 when the box is hooked up to the TV. Since there is no channel 3, it defaults to channel 2 before I can switch the input. I was thinking that I need to reset the TV back to the way it was when I took it out of the box. When I set it back to factory default, it doesn't effect the channels. Anyone know how to do a hard reset on this type of TV? Element ELEFT325 (by the way, this model isn't listed on the elementelectronics.com website). Thanks!

Try a hard reset first - Unplug TV from power source and remove all cable for about an hour. Then reconnect everything and see if it works..Let me know how it goes.

Excuse me but the other answers are written by people who have not actually confronted the problem and are just guessing. They are all wrong. Here's the answer:
If your TV is expecting a TV input, it will keep searching for at least one TV channel on cable or antenna. If you only have a DVD player plugged in, for example, or if your cable is hooked up wrong, so there's no video signal on it, the TV will keep searching forever. (This is an unforgivable design flaw, by the way. But then, it was a cheap TV, wasn't it?)
To solve the problem, look at your remote control. You will find input buttons. Mine are small, along the top, right under the "power" button. Try pressing "video" for example, instead of TV. That stops the TV from hunting for TV channels.
Have a merry Christmas. Enjoy your new TV. Watch it in moderation and eat fruit and vegetables every day.

it sounds like a refresh issue, double check you selector and make sure it fits the refresh of the tv. i had this once with a sharp where the tv was 120hz and the selector was 60 and it created a no signal and when it did come in it was jumpy. if you have a 120 tv then selector should be the same.

SOURCE: My Panasonic Viera 50" 1080i
The Panasonic doesn't detect the presence of the signal on the antenna input so it just skips it. shut down the player and turn the cable box on before attempting to switch sources.
But why aren't you using the Composite RCA connection on the cable box ? Not only you would get a much better image but the tv would detect that change in the AV source and should switch by itself. If it doesn't then the control processor is faulty and the entire mainboard will will have to be replaced
