Sony Bravia KDL-46W40XX/42XX - lost digital channels

Hi there.. I have a Sony KDL-46W4000 european model and i have a problem with it. I receive my TV channels via DVB-C both MPEG2 and MPEG4 channels. It suddenly started to periodically delete all my digital TV channels, and i have been forced to search again, and sort all my channels again. Is there a way to get a firmware update or something? Sony does not send firmware out though the cable TV here in Denmark. Can it be done with a USB stick? And where do i download the firmware? Here's my product information on my TV: KDL-46W40XX/42XX 0004324515 B.U-EG-Q-C.T.GG-A.CY.Z Thanks - Mikael

SOURCE: Sony Bravia does not see my digital channels

Hi buck lite,
Your cable company is telling the truth, you have digital cable. When auto scanned for digital channels the tv is lookig for OTR(over the air) signals. These are broadcast signals you will need an antenna to receive. Depending where you are and the type of antenna you use you probably could pick up some digital channels. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

Most likely this is caused by a defective main board. Changing the main board will fix the issue about 95% of the time.

To be absolutely sure, the voltages need to be checked on the power supply. If they are not the values listed in the service manual, then you should replace the power supply instead (accounts for the other 5% of the time).

SOURCE: TV will not remember settings Sony Bravia KDL 40S4011

Probably you are in "shop" mode of TV. Try to reset your TV and go through initial setup. Most important - choose "home" instead of "shop" when asked during initial setup. Resetting - keep up arrow pressed and switch of TV. Keep the button pressed when TV automatically switch back on. This will reset TV to factory defaults.

Using an antenna on KDL-32S5100


No you do not. Your Sony already has a digital tuner. If you are not getting all the channels you think you should, you just need to keep progromming your TV with the antenna at different locations to maximise your signal.

Hi my sony bravia kdl-46v4100 model is decresing sound before i use 20% volume to hear it but now i use 40% of volume. What should i do? Can you guys help me? Thanks!


It's probably a station channel, channels broadcast different picture and sound quality, therefore when changing channels this can be noticable. It is probably not a tv problem.

How to improve picture quality?


are you using an hd source ? hd cable box, satelitte receiver or antenna with the digital channels programmed in. regular tv channels will not look as good as the picture you saw in the store when you bought it. they all use only high definition signals.
