The telly has been working for about 9 months and all of a sudden without changing anything it is saying there is no signal. Tried switching it off and on and all that but no difference. Analogue channels work.

Re: No signal showing when I switch into Digital mode
Try unplugging the TV and give it a minute or so, then plug it back in. Sometimes the computer inside gets wonky. Completely removing power will reset it, but just turning it off and on doesn't change anything.
If there is still no signal, verify that the source is actually functioning and that all your connecting cables are still firmly in the right places.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

So, Vanessa, in sunny Brighton. Has your neighbour got signal problems or is your telly telling the truth? See if there is a receiver problem by trying a portable telly in other rooms. If it works wherever then your telly is in trouble. Have you tried reloading your signal search mode from the handset? If you've brought the telly from another area you will need to retune.
hi the problem wouldnt be the screen instead your probably right with the video card if the screen was dead it would stay black but with it changing slightly you know the screen is gettin power. When you press the controll does an led flash on the telly to tell you the controll is working just incase the telly is stuck on an av channel. If you have got a dvd player hooked upto the telly switch this on with the telly on and see if the telly will work using the dvd player this would rule out the fault being with the ports on the telly not picking up the signal. If this still dont change anything then it could either be a resistor gone or a couple or it could be what you thought with the video card/controller but their is no way of knowing without testing the resistance at certain points on the board but it deffinately wouldnt be a problem with the screen so it shouldnt cost to much to repair. It mgith be a case that the telly has overheated and blown a resistor thse can be brought for pennys but locating will be the problem let me know what you want to do and wether you are considering doing the repair yourself if you are you will need schematics to follow off and also multimeter to test resistance at certain points on the board.
Did you change the HDMI cable? If so, you should check to ensure you have the cable installed so it is running the right direction. It may seem hard to believe but some HDMI cables only allow the signal to run in one direction.
Two things you can try: Check the remote control and press the button for Digital input. Someone may have set the tv to expect an analogue signal from the aerial while you were pouring your wine. Because the analogue tv signal has been switched off the tv won\'t be receiving anything off-air. It will need setting back to digital to receive Freeview.
The television set may be dropping itself into "AV" mode and is expecting an input through a SCART or HDMI socket. Sometimes an external device (video or DVD player) will hijack the television if the set-uphs been configured for this. Try unplugging all external devices (Sky box, DVD, VCR, games console or whatever you have plugged in). Make sure that the telly is configured to digital input and tuned to BBC1. Then see if the it will show the programme. If the television is actually broke then you should return it if it\'s still under guarantee.

Hi the only slight chancer you have of doing this without the remote and this will only work with some tellys is to have the telly switched on then the device you have connected to the video input have this switched off at the wall then with the telly on switch the device on your trying to get the telly to pick up now some tellys will pick up the signal and go to that input channel, if how ever this dont work your going to need to go out and buy an all in 1 remote, these remotes cost next to nothing to buy you can get them off the well known auction site or from your nearest cheap shop such as discount stores that sell goods for next to nothing these remotes will work on all tellys and would solve your problem if the way i told you dont work.
Im sorry their is no easy way to get it to change but without the remote your pretty much stuck unless on the telly you have a button that looks like a square with an arrow running from left to right if you have this button then pressing this wil change the input source for you, if you dont have this then the only option would be an all 4 1 remote.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok
The problem has cleared itself a day later after being switched on/off a few times.I suspect the 'computer part' of the TV (channel processor, instruction decoder etc) received maybe a power glitch or an illegal infrared instruction (2 remotes used at once for example) and 'locked up' leaving just the analogue side operating. I was going to continue happily using it with just the analogue side slaved to my Hd recorder for digital signals but it seems to have got over whatever it was that upset it.
I suppose pcm light means that the pcm mode is turned on (pcm meaning pulse code modulation), in other words, the unit was switched to digital signal, so if the digital rca or optical TV input on your reciever is not connected to anything, then you're not getting any signal into the reciever in digital mode. You probably just need to switch the unit back to analog mode (see if there is a button that says something like digital/analog, pcm/analog, optical/coax or similar, try pressing it, see if there is any change).
I might just be totally wrong on this, however, probably the best way to learn what happened is to read the user manual if you do have it (see what the pcm light signals for and check any chapters inside the manual related to that topic).
