Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-26S2000 26 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

Tuning problem My new Sony bravia 26 inch TV keeps 'losing channels'. The display tells me the station is not tuned even after I repeat auto tuning. I can see the picture and hear sound too but the picture and sound break up constantly.

    I have exactly the same problem! Even when the weather is good and clear. I feel it's not fair to pay that much to buy a HD tv, and also pay tv tax, but not being able to watch most of channels!! Is there any solution? !!

The tuner is bad. Could also be the video process, since the hi-def is decoded there

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

  2. Press the BLUE button to display the MAIN MENU.
  3. Press the UP or DOWN buttons to highlight AUTO TUNING then press the OK button to display the AUTO TUNING MENU.

You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information
