The memory is not locking on and if is possible that the IC could be faulty. Unless you are experiencing some power irregularities, it is possible that the memory is faulty.
But to start with for a possible fault, we can check the power, the plug leads , make sure it is firm.
Solder the sections of the Processor/timer setting/Memory. Do a touch up job on the passive components around this section.
Hope the test proves right and I could chance this help?
Good day.

Sounds like you have problem in the Main Board,meaning the problem is in your tuner, sometimes just resoldering poor solder joints clears this out if not ,its the tuner.

You will need to see if the TV is set for the proper type of broadcast system (in the USA that is the NTSC standard) in the menu and that the antenna is giving a good strong signal.

TV is searching for over the air channels. Select in the main menu to go from over the air to cable channels and you should be fine.

We have a hitachi 32LD30U A tv. Can't tune it in? Bought a new aerial today but still no joy. Tried time after time to set up through auto installation but no good. Any ideas? Thank you


You didn't say whether you have had the tv a while or whether it is new to you.

If you have had it for a while functioning well and you was just trying to retune, then it is likely there is a fault with the tv.

If the tv is new to you then maybe even with a new aerial there isn't enough signal - or maybe there is too much signal. With digital tv one is as bad as the other.

It is very unlikely but if there are too many channels it can prevent a successful retune.

If you have another tv that works ok in the same position with the same aerial then clearly the Hitachi is suspect. If you haven't a spare tv to use then perhaps you have or can borrow a set-top digi-box to use for testing and if that works ok why not use that as a way around your problem.

I think before you take any action it would be a good idea to read the instructions for the tv again just to be certain you aren't making an elementary mistake. If yours are lost you can download a pdf version.

You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

Why does my new television keep pixcelating? I tried another television & it is fine. I have a booster on my aerial & another on the tv.


If it breaks up with large pixels it is a lack of signal but in your case it might be too strong a signal. On a new set it is unlikely you need to boost the signal. Try removing them. Also check the connections on your satellite or cable box. If you use a signal via an aerial, check for nice clean connections on the junction box at the aerial itself.

Fisrt check that the aerial connector going into the TV is OK.
The UK is in the process of switching off the analogue channels and reassigning to digital TV. This means that the signal strengths of various transmitters are getting stronger and channels are moving around to different frequencies. Try retuning the digital TV stations. If this does not work then try an external DTV box to see if the TV is at fault or it is a bad signal on the aerial.

if you have connected your sky box as per instructions, putting the aerial coax to it and a fly lead(as in a male to female coax as used on a vcr to tv) from the output to the tv's aerial input, then disconnect the aerial from the sky box and put it back to the tv. The skybox will weaken and even loose the signal.

HAVE GOT A SWISSTEC 15 INCH TV BUILT IN FREEVIEW, BUT CA NOT GET ITV 1 OR CHANNEL 4 ON IT. HAVE TRIED RETUNNING BUT NO GOOD


The model number would usually be on the back of the TV but in this case it's immaterial as Swisstec appear to have had a very brief existence. Their website no longer works (skymediamanufacturing.com, no connection to Sky satellite tv) and the few products which have their brand name on all seem to be at outlets like ALDI and Makro which often specialise in clearance lines and bankrupt stock.

First, check that your missing channels haven't been shifted to 801, 802 etc. This is happening with some equipment and it's just how some slightly incompatible equipment handles the retune.

What you have said about your aerial system does not eliminate the possibility of an aerial fault; as you're running multiple items off one aerial I'd fully expect it to be a high gain aerial, but this does not necessarily mean that it's a wide band aerial. In addition, each time the signal from a single aerial is split there is typically up to a 10dB loss (around 60% each time). Regular analogue reception equipment can cope with this far better than Freeview receivers as the analogue signals are vastly more powerful than the digital ones. One of the most important UK transmitters puts out a 100kW (i.e. 100 000W) analogue signal along with an 800W Freeview one making the analogue signal 125x stronger at the transmitter and far weaker further away.

Realistically, you have limited options. Most Freeview receivers have an onscreen menu in the digital tuner which has a signal strength and quality meter for each channel. If most of the channels have a middling signal with good quality then your reception is most likely ok so look at the aerial cable at the back of the set to see how long the plug into the back of the tv is. If it's longer than about 2cm then it probably has an in-line suppressor fitted onto the end of the plug. Usually there's a marking of either 6dB or 10dB on the suppressor. Remove any suppressor and try retuning.

If that didn't work then check as much of your aerial system as possible paying special attention to the plugs and splitters. No plug should be showing any bare wire, and the external screening braids must not be touching the internal signal wire. You'll probably have to undo each plug to check for this and remake any shoddy work. If you have aerial splitters which are the push together variety then check the connections are tight. Also consider replacing them with the screw threaded F-terminal splitters which all professional installers use. These cost very little more than the useless things sold in most DIY stores and general retail outlets but hugely reduce signal losses. I've posted an online address of a supplier at the end of my post, but you can also get them from your local Maplin store usually at extra cost.

If you have an amplified aerial then try disconnecting the amplifier. These are often inappropriately fitted and cause digital signal meters to show the confusing message of a strong signal with poor quality. A good quality weak signal can be successfully amplified but a poor quality signal requires a better aerial installation.

If you have eliminated all doubt regarding your aerial then the fault is most likely with the receiver itself. The official advice is to try retuning but you've almost certainly done that. There is a list of equipment known to have problems with the retune (see second web address) but it's not comprehensive and misses out minor brands like Swisstec. Clearly you cannot contact Swisstec and they are in no position to rectify the problem themselves any more. Under these circumstances your only remaining option is to buy a new external receiver from around £20 and connect it to your tv as if it never had an internal receiver.

Note that the UK Sale of Goods Act was recently amended to allow purchasers up to six years protection against goods which are not of "satisfactory quality" (replacing the earlier term "merchantable quality"). You've had your tv for eighteen months and the tv itself still works, but as a super-budget unknown brand it's doubtful that you could press your rights regarding the failed Freeview receiver.

Sorry this is not the easy fix you were hoping for but I hope that it's been of some assistance.

Freeview box (Duraband)


Hi Sandra , it could be poor signal ,worth trying another box on your aerial , also the aerial lead could cause this even the one from the wall plate to the Freeview box ,if your analogue picture is snowy then I would suspect the aerial have you looked for a signal strength meter in the menu , might show how good the signal is
hope this helps
cheers John
