Question about LG 42PX4DV 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

Open Question

Freeview Channel information Bar

I don't know whether anyone can help me with this problem, or whether I am just imagining it. Yesterday I added a new Freeview box to my LG 42PX4DV 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma and it is working perfectly. However, when I switched the Input channel back to DTV to view the integrated Digital (Freeview) channels, something seemed to be missing! The Guide button still works and I can still see times and details of other Digital channels, but when I select a channel to view, I no longer see the blue bar at the bottom of the screen showing the name of the channel, the programme details and how much time is left. I am sure that this used to appear before I altered the connections at the back of the set. I have tried removing the new FreeView box and restoring the original connections but this hasn't helped. Have I perhaps accidentally turned this display off, and if I have how on earth do I switch it back on again? Can someone please help?

SOURCE: TV freezes when switching to a digital channel

The problem your describing can be contributed to your cable box. Depending on your cable company there are times when the box has trouble translating the signal to the tv. You tv is operating normally. Suggest to the cable company to switch your box.

SOURCE: Lg Plasma Display settings keep switching

When you boot up your tv for the first time, you get to choose between home and shop-mode.
In your case, he TV is set to "shop-mode".
Then it will go back to factory settings after 5-10 minutes. (so that customers won't mess up the settings all the time)

So change the settings from shop to home, and your problem is fixed!

How do you tune in to get freeview HD on the TXP42S21B


You simply need to perform the auto-setup when you first use the television. The freeview HD channels will tune in at the same time as the standard def. (SD) channels. You will find them in your channel list but there are only 3 freeview HD channels currently available - BBC HD (Channel 50), ITV1 HD (Channel 51) and Channel 4 HD (Channel 52).

If these channels are missing, it's may be because the HD broadcasts haven't started in your area yet. Please visit this page and enter your postcode to find out if you can get these channels:

http://www.freeview.co.uk/availability/

If you've gone past the auto-setup and you need information on how to tune your TV, please consult your manual or post back here and I will assist you.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

We have had our tv for a few years, cant remember exactly, it is a CTVL26W34ID and we need to know if it is digital ready. Thanks for any help you can give.


I cannot find a manual for that number.
If it is digital you would be able to receive more than the 5 analogue programmes.
It would probably mention freeview on some part of the tv.
If you can get some of the extra freeview channels but not clearly then the aerial will need changing.

I presume you are from the uk, I had to change my aerial to get reception the cost for that was £240(i needed a indoor roof aerial so needed extra boosters).so aerial will be £150-£240.
You can turn your tv into a digital by adding a freeview digital box £20-50 .
Or purchase a new tv with freeview incorporated in it.
So i `m pretty sure if you have read the above you can decide whether its digital,but i think not.

Attempting to retune channel 5 was asked to return to factory settings answerd Yes and lost picture, sound and channel changing still O.K.Please advise.Don.


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.

How can I get Freeview Channels?


I have a Bush 6690D and I can confirm that it does have a built-in digital decoder for terrestrial signals (Freeview).

Have you checked whether ***********'s TV is set to digital mode ? The "Mode" button on the remote cycles between analog, digital and AV inputs.

TV, freeview, DVD and video set up.


Hi.
Modern day freeview boxes rarely have A modulator in them so you can not tune it to a channel on your tv it must be connected using scart lead.
Most freeview boxes have 2 scart sockets one for VCR & one for TV plug your scart leads in to the scart sockets of freeview they will be labled TV & VCR.
The scart labled TV goes to scart socket on the TV labled AV1 or 1
The scart labled VCR goes to scart socket on VCR labled AV or IN
Now the aerial leads From wall socket to ANT in on freeview.
Then from RF out on freeview to ANT in on VCR.
Then RF out on VCR to ANT in on TV doing this will enable you to put TV on 9 to watch tapes.

The final scart will be from DVD to TV socket marked AV2

You will need to put TV on AV channel to view freeview.
To record freeview you must put VCR to EITHER line.av,aux. it will be one of those different manufacturers call them by varying names.
I have done this banking on your tv having 2 scart sockets if it only has 1 let me know & I will tell you how to wire it differently.
Please state make & model of TV set & VCR & what connections are available EG scart, Phono, Svhs etc.

I have lost my tv channels!


I have a philips freeview box (although it is not built in). I recently lost all my channels also. It took me back to the installation screen and started to look for channels, furthermore if it couldn't find any it 'bugged out' on me. The only way I got around this was by unplugging the aerial, watching the screen trying to scan the channels and when the progress bar / channel # was near the end plugging the aerial back in. For some reason this started the scanning over again but this time it found channels! Strange I know, but maybe its different for me and one of those conspiracies that they program products to fail after a few years to make you buy more. Try this and let me know if it works Thanks Matthew
