All of your answers are in the manual.
Read the instructions. If the TV has a digital tuner, set the menu to find channels after you attach an antenna aimed at the TV station transmitter. It will scan stations and memorize the ones it finds so you can switch to them.
If you mean
"How can I program all the available channels into a TV without doing a channel scan?"
... you will need to program them manually, one at a time, using the remote.
Refer to the Owner's Manual to find out how to do it with your specific TV.
transfer the channels from the memory IC of another similar tv that was scanned before into the memory IC of this tv..
Do you mean scan for programmes? If so then the TV would need to be connected to either an antenna or a dish (if not cable), and you'd then select the scan option from the TV setup menus!
*Most modern TVs will require the original remote in order to do this - programmable remotes are often not suitable!
What does scan a TV mean?
...with your scanner...?
What do you mean by "Scan" and why does being connected to cable, or not, an factor?
