SOURCE: only picking up one digital channel

digital air signals are weak and fussy. They are easily lost by having trees or large buildings in the way too.
The best thing to do is install a long range roof top antenna and re program the set. Be sure to aim the antenna correctly. if you cannot use a roof top antenna you can try the indoor digital antennas,but less likely to work consistently

This could be a problem to do with your aerial rather than the TV. However, your first action should be a "Factory Defuault" reset. Make sure the TV does a full retune rather than just looking at the channels where the stations were previously.

The TV will have a flat response through the channel frequency range. Your aerial though could be a very different matter. Depending on the type of aerial, and especially if it's a banded aerial that discriminates against certain frequencies, then the retune may well have moved certain channel into frequencies that your current aerial really struggles to pick up.

You don't say what your TV region is, so I can't be specific because you didn't give the necessary information in the question. But I'll give you an example based on my region which is North West England, receiving off the Winter Hill transmitter.

Anyone with a Group C/D banded aerial will be okay picking up most of the channel muxes because they're grouped up at the top end of the frequency range (ch 49~57). That's pretty perfect for a C/D aerial. However, the new Freeview HD channels that give BBC 4 HD, 4 +1HD, BBC News HD is down at ch 37. A C/D aerial will struggle to pick that up because it is far less sensitive at that frequency, and particularly so if it is a contract Yagi type aerial.

The majority of aerials fitted though are the so-called Wideband High Gain. These favour the upper end of the frequency range again. So channel 37 will be picked up. But is is much weaker than the other muxes.

Take off the muffler and you should see the piston and ring..with a small pick push at ring to see if it moves. If no movement, you have carbon buildup from too much oil in fuel. Remove cylinder and carefully try to free the ring.

TV won't pick up channels 7-13


These are what once were VHF channels and are still mostly assigned to local stations.
You didn't mention the source for your received signals, if antenna, cable or satellite and it does make a difference as to the possible source of the problem.
If you are receiving via antenna, then the problem is within the set itself. If from one of the other two sources requiring a 'box,' then the problem is likely within the cable or satellite box that is between your incoming signal and the set.

Sony Bravia Digital TV won't tune Channels 350 and 350, can't manual tune wither as it will only accept 2 digit numbers, even though it tunes 201 ...


These numbers are the LCN (Logical Channel Number) assigned by the broadcasters. It will only be at 350 if it is the same channel from a different transmitter. You need to know the 'channel' of the frequency to manually tune it in. You are talking about the program number not the channel (frequency), a common mistake. i.e ABC in Sydney is transmitted on CH12 (226.5Mhz) and the LCN's for each program are 2,21,22,23,24,201 & 201. If your antenna also picks up the signals from the Kings Cross transmitter ABC is CH30 (543.5Mhz), as these are later in the spectrum they are put in the LCN list starting at 350.
