Question about Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V4000E 40 in. LCD TV

1 Answer

Digital tuning is failing

I've had all my free to air digital channels working for over 6 months, but just this week my tv has decided to start deleting channels. When i try retuning, it only finds some of the channels.

The tv is in the same place and hasn't been moved. Antenna is fine as other tv's are working.

The retuning process is as follows:

  1. Press the [i+] or MENU button on the remote control to display the DIGITAL INFO menu.
  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.
  4. Press the RED button to start the auto tuning process for all available digital channels.
  5. Wait for the process to complete.

If you wish to CANCEL the auto tuning process whilst it is processing then press the BLUE button at any time.

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

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.

I just purchased a used Sony KDL-V26XBR1 that cannot tune the digital channels over our cable or any signal on the over the air input. Our Samsung, same vintage on the same cable can tune the digital...


Greetings - Your Sony has the standard tuners for a current HDTV, NTSC (analog), QAM (cable), and ATSC (digital/HD) broadcast..

There's something going on with the Sony TV. It's a pretty high end TV so it might have some additional features that require you to do something different (I doubt it) but make sure you've been through the manual.

If you didn't get one with the TV you can download a PDF version HERE.

Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Itv and ch4 channels have no signal on my digital


First check with some of your neighbours to find out if they have the same problem if you are using a communial aerial, if thiers are ok, try re-tuning the TV from "Auto tune" in the set-up menu, this will retune the entire TV & should pick up the missing channels.

Describe how to program channels on lg tv


Very simple -
You will need to find a feature that says 'Auto Tune'

This first will ask you to select between:
1) Regular TV - off air antenna - connection
2) Cable TV - connection
3) DSS TV - Connection

If you aren't ready for digital TV with your antenna or cable you may get very few channels.

Limited cable channels


There isn't a software upgrade available for your TV yet. So, the TV has the latest software right now.

I would try making the TV search for more channels.
Press Menu on the remote,
go to SETUP,
then go to CH SETUP,
then make sure the AIR/CABLE option is on CABLE,
then go to CH SEARCH and select " Analog & Digital Search Start ".
The new channels should show up after the scan is done.
If this doesn't work, the TV may need some type of new converter/cable box from the cable company.

If you need a copy of your manual, you can go here:
