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 have a palsonic TFTV826HD tv and when i came home from a 2 week holiday , i am not able to receive the ABC and ch 10 stations , others i have , i reset and did the auto tuning


Do you use an digital antenna receiver which gives you a couple basic air channels for free Or is it through a cable company? It could be the weather conditions or the antenna could be unplugged or cable wire could be loose or cable company could have certain channels being fixed.
. We have a big Element HD tv flat screen and use an digital antenna receiver and when receiver is unplugged or if our outside/entry way doors are open (receiver antenna is outside) none or some of channels won't work..
Hope this kinda helps :/ :) let me know.at least I tried lol

Would ya know if this 2006 Oct. Memorex TV mod.# mt2024 is digital or not


If no one answers on that model TV (so many models), see following: All the digital TV's have a "search channels" function from a menu button either on remote or on front of TV. See if menu has something like "Setup" and "Auto Tuning" (or words like that) which indicates a digital TV, if no channel search likely analog TV. Once clicking to search for channels (arrow buttons to get there and enter button to start, or some other buttons I saw once did that), it scans the airwaves starting with Ch2 and ending with ch 78 or so. Takes about 30 seconds for it to find channels with antenna connected. Antenna can be old UHF antenna. Search completed, the TV can show the channels in normal channel viewing. If not a digital TV, you can get a DTV converter box to get free tv off the air, it is basically a digital TV tuner that works on analog TV's. You can get those on Ebay.

Toshiba HD ready TV ct 90158 makes high pitched sound


A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.
