SOURCE: Digital tuning

You'll need to go into service mode and do a factory reset.
To enter service mode you'll need to press these buttons on your remote in the following order:-
Standby-info-menu-mute-standby.You'll need to do it fairly quickly and be patient it doesn't always go into it first time,don't press and hold the buttons.
The service menu should appear on the screen.Use the up /down cursor to scan down to option number 12 (factory reset)and then press the right cursor wait will appear on the screen and the set will go to standby(don't worry this is normal)
Reboot the set and retune and all should be well

SOURCE: How to tune AWA-Thorn C6337 television

There should be two dials, one is UHF, you need the main dial on U for the UHF channel tuner to work, turn the UHF dial with the main dial on U and if you have a UHF antenna, you should see something if you get a UHF broadcast where you are, the main dial will probably be numbered 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 6a 7 8 9 or something like that, they are VHF channels, should be preset at the factory, but if not, turn the centre of the main dial, you may have to push it in and turn.

In saying all that, i dont know the model, but im pretty damn sure it was the same or simular 63cm AWA Deep Image Colour set that i had from way back in the VERY early 80s. I cant remember that model number though.

i think i get the jist - you've moved, and now you're missing a couple channels. from what you're saying, i assume you are using a digital converter box, or have a digital ready tv. i personally have seen many problems since the digital change, specifically loss of channels. even though digital tv is supposed to be 'all that', and it is fine when it works, the quality and placement of your antenna is still critical. you are still receiving a signal on the same channel, only with digital, they have reduced the bandwidth. this action was not done with the consumer in mind, it was done to free up air space for other communicatiomns. try an amplified antenna [available at radio shack for about 20 dollars], and try different positions. if this doesn't work, you might try an outdoor antenna. with digital signals, if there is an obstruction between you and the transmission site, rather than getting a weak, snowy picture, or shadows, as you would back in the days of analog, your receiver will simply not receive the station

I cannot retune my samsung tv- model no LE37C53CF1W- COULD YOU ADVISE HOW TO RETUNE, mANY THANKS, Jim Lauder


Hi,Does the icon look like a large satellite dish?
Make sure your TV is on "TV" and not "DTV" before retuning.

To re-tune analogue channels:

I have a Samsung TV and that icon is not accessible from the menu if i am watching the tv on the digital option of my remote. You have to switch your tv to the "tv" option on your remote and you will be able to access the icon from your menu.
(on your remote, you should have a button with TV/DTV on it)

To re-tune analogue channels, if you want to re-tune digital channels, then look for the "D MENU" button on your remote. Press this then scroll down to the icon that looks like a large satellite and then on "Auto Store" This will re-tune your digital channels :0)


Take care and hope it helped.
