I have lost all my channels when i did factory reset so i assume i need to reset a few things and don't have any paperwork with the symbol numbers on etc.
My box was saying no signal and when i did power scan I got only a few channels but I didn't get bbc itv etc, infact i only got 21 channels of none use.
is there anyone out there that can help me put all relevant information back in to start my box again, and does anyone know why all the channels went in the first place.

I have no direct idea but you could try a few things........
I assume you get these via an aerial, the first I know is obvious but are they on air in your area? then I would try feeding the TV via another aerial to see if this brings it back ( aerials and cables can decay and cause many curious effects to notch out signals) so if a second aerial works replace your original system.
The TV may have a skip option to jump/ignore some channels check on this, failing this factory reset or tune again and store. Also with previous point if TV small move to another location (next door or friends house).
Sorry best I can think of other than a service engineer ......
To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.
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
you are doing well to have any channels at all as all the other people have lost all sports and movies so i would delete the channels that are scrambled and then rescan you must delete the scrambled channels before you rescan
