Not a solution...but an "answer". First, you should call the tech support number and talk to them; but others have posted on this site (and I'm about to) that they're having the same problem (mine won't get cbs or abc stations). I was told, as was another poster on this site, that 'some tvs just don't tune into some stations).

Even though the tvs have built-in ACTS and a NCTS tuner (for analog and hd) they don't always work with external (rabbit ear) antenna.

ANother poster to fixya wrote that she's returning her set to Target...where mine was also purchased. I'm going to ahve to box up ours also and return it, a shame since it was a gift!

My Polaroid HDTV says no signal. What is going on.


  • Have you plugged in the arial?
  • Is it in the right socket?
  • Are you using an aerial cable extender/splitter?
  • Are you using a portable indoor aerial?
  • Does it have built in Freeview?
  • Have you plugged in an external Freeview box if necessary?
  • Have you scanned for channels through the Freeview box?
  • Are you in an area where the analogue signal has been turned off?
  • Have you subscribed to a cable or satellite provider?
  • Are you on the right TV source?
  1. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in.
  2. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in correctly.
  3. If you are using an aerial cable extender or splitter, make sure all parts are connected all the way up to the aerial.
  4. If you're using a portable indoor aerial you might not be able to get enough signal to produce a picture. Also the aerial might need to be switched on, plugged in or need batteries.
  5. If the TV has Freeview built-in then you will need to scan for channels before you will get a picture. refur to you're TV's manual.
  6. Make sure, if you have got an external Freeview box that it is plugged in and switched on at the wall. Also make sure that it is connected to the TV either by a scart lead or by HDMI cable.
  7. Typically there will be a button on the remote called menu. From the menu screen choose setup. Then choose auto scan. Follow any on-screen instructions. Always refur to the TV's manual to avoid confusion and frustration.
  8. If you are in an area where they have switched off the analogue signal you will need to buy a Freeview box or subscribe to a cable or satellite provider. Freeview is cheep and is a one off payment ( best for people who will only really watch channels 1-5)
  9. Ring up your providers tech support.
  10. To change what input you are viewing, there will normally be a button called source on the remote. If you have connected a Freeview or cable/satalite box to the tv with a scart lead then select scart. If you used a HDMI lead then select HDMI. (There may be more than one of theses sockets so check behind the TV first. They usually have names or numbers by the side) refur to you're TV manual for help.
That is every problem i can think of. If it still doesnt work, take it back to the shop.
Hope this helps.

I am unable to retune my defina32"tv I have lost some of the channels I already had, please help BBC1 ok. BBC2 ok. ch3 invalid channel. ch4 invalid channel.ch5 invalid channel. The list goes on, some are...


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.

Freeview box


After scanning the box should save the channel automatically. If the box does not save the preset after scanning channels, then it is probably faulty.
Some box has a pinhole reset button at the back, if you have this reset button keep it pressed with a pencil for 10 seconds to reset the freeview box.
If it does not work, the nbox is probably faulty.

With freeview you only pay for few scrambled channels, the most of them are free and do not need any additional fee.

Freeview is not available in all areas, check that you have freeview in your location, and that aerial is well connected to the box, otherwise not finding channels is normal.

No channels can be detected have tried 2 Daewoo DS608P boxes connected to same telly but same thing happens. Signal strength seems fine boxes have been working fine for years.


I am the same. Not a sausage from my same model Daewoo freeview box today. Scans and re-scans and not a single channel to be detected.

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
