TX23 LXD60. Requests a retune each time you switch on
On several occasions when I turn on the set, it says a new channnel has been added and I have to go through the whole tuning procedure which takes 3-4 minutes. I don't believe that many new channels are added and it as though the set is not holding the tuning details once switched off. It's strange though as BBC1 as the first station does show before the option to add new stations appears. Of course I can exit this procedure and all stations are there, so it must be holding some tuning data somewhere. As this is the only freeview box set we have, I have nothing to compare it against. Is this normal?

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 http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/ If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

Its a old set, but I have seen this before--on two occasions I ran into this--I put it on a outlet controlled by a wall switch and had to cut power several times before it would actually come on---it was ok after it made it on but the next day when cold same problem was back---give it up if this is your issue as even with over 30 years of fixing things it was just easier to cut the sets power till it came on. This set is at least 15 years old.
Automatic scan cannot detect the BBC channels, possibly because they are too weak in your new location. It should be possible to add channels manually by using your remote. The setup function of your TV may give you the option of adding channels manually
To restore missing channels, you need to retune your digital receiver (box or TV).
retuning process runs a scan and finds all the available channels. Your
box may have an Add New Channels option that you can use, but this may
not pick up other changes such as channels being moved to a different
multiplex or removed altogether. How to retune
Switch on your digital box and/or TV.
Press Menu on the remote control.
Select the Setup or Installation option.
Select the 'First time installation' option (sometimes called 'Factory reset', 'Full retune' or 'Default settings').
Press OK if your equipment asks if you want to delete all your channels. Don't worry, this is normal.
If you are prompted for a code, try 0000 or 1234.
Channels will be automatically installed. This may take a few minutes and your equipment may shut down and restart.
After retuning, you will have to redo your Favourites list and other
settings. If you retune a digital TV recorder, you also should reset
Just got through to Samsung support. Turns out the freeview card had frozen and needed a reset. To do this put tv on standby. then press in serries these buttons on the remote: 'info' 'menu' 'mute' 'power' TV will then turn on with a default screen. Press 'arrow down' button untill you reach option 12 'reset' . then push the 'right arrow' and tv will reset and start in plug and play mode and commence a scan when you've set the time. Just retuned mine and its back to normal. Hoorah!!! :-)
