My grandma has recently been gifted a Polaroid TV as a Christmas gift. When the free view channels had the TV reset she lost the signal to an outdoor cctv camera for the building. We can't seem to get it...


probably the camera is either analogue or video . How was it connected to the TV via the Aerial Cable or via an AV input
If the camera is Analogue it may be on a ATV channel. So you would need to switch the input Source on the remote for the tv and check the ATV channels. If it was on a AV then try checking the AV input sources.
The free view channels is probably DTV source . .

Using Ex Pat Shield, BBC progs no longer start and a notice, 'Task failed at step 0: config was empty.' (Or 'Task queue failed ditto' Everything worked fine just days ago.


I have exactly the same problem, same error message. I first noticed the problem yesterday (September 11). Error message appears when trying to watch live TV through iPlayer. BBC News Channel works OK from BBC News website. Live sports broadcasts work OK through BBC Sport website. I uninstalled and reinstalled Flash Player but it made no difference.

How do i tune the channels on a toshiba rc3910


Hi
Before tuning the set to auto tune mode, make sure the antenna or cable, whatever may, connected to its appropriate sockets at the back of the set firmly. To make it autotune:

As new services are broadcast, it will be necessary to

re-tune the television in order to view them.

Auto Tuning will completely re-tune the television

and can be used to update the channel list. It is

recommended that Auto Tuning is run periodically to
ensure that all new services are added. All current

channels and settings, i.e. locked channels, will be
lost.

[1] Select the SETUP from the main menu by using

Up or Down buttons. Press OK and Setup menu
will be displayed.

[2] Select the Installation from the Setup menu

by using Up or Down buttons. Press OK and
Installation menu will be displayed.

]3] Select Automatic Channel Scan from the Installation

menu by using Up or Down buttons and press OK.

A screen will appear warning that previous digital

programmes and settings will be deleted. Select Yes
and press OK to continue with the Auto tuning.

The television will start to search for all available

stations.You must allow the television to complete

the search. When the search is complete the Auto

tuning screen will display the total number of
services found.

* After search is completed for digital channels, a

message asking whether to search for analogue
channels appears on the screen

** Press the OK button to search for analogue

channels. The following menu appears on the screen
for analogue channel search
OK.

Problem, unable to access any digital channels. TV displays error message Database Empty, any way of removing this message and accessing DTV again. Thanks


If the database is empty you need to re load the system.
With your remote controller, go to menu and from that you need to select install or setup.
This will scan for all available channels and store them for use.
Hope that helps.

Cannot tune all digital cahnnels on Sharp aquos


Start by doing a factory settings/ defaults on the Sharp rather than a normal automatic retune.This should then be ok. You need to empty the existing presets first so it will find the new type of signal BBC is now using.
If still not working for BBC1 +2 then look at whether you have too much aerial signal strength. (ie a booster/splitter that you could bypass)

Loosing digital channels is equivlent to a snowy analog channel, check you cable connections, and splitters to the tv, since you have two of them out, it does not make sense that it is your tv. It is a conneciton in your cable line somewhere.
