No digital picture on digital TV

Hi, The analogue TV transmission signal was switched off in my region yesterday and now only digital is transmitted. My Sony Projection TV which is digitally compatible and has had digital pictures and channels on it for years has now lost all channels.
Any ideas?

    Thanks Ian.

    Im on a digital channel and the message it says is No Signal recieved, channel not tuned. I have spoke to the digital helpline and they say it will be a software or hardware "not complatible with the current digital signal" issue and suggest I speak to Sony!

Are you getting a snowy picture, If so, you`re still on analogue. If you are on a digital channel with say no signal, you should get a blank screen with either a message saying no signal or a dot on the screen. Ian

    Have you tried performing a re-scan? If you do this, in theory it should find all available channels AND download the new software to your set. Also, Have you completely re-booted the set as in switch off at the mains, Not just standby? Ian

The input from the component output does not display on the (sony) tv. The cables are good. Also the TV picture does not display . Can anyone help?


I take it is a video signal, is it analogue or digital, modern TVs need a digital signal and the old ones analogue, best to find out.

The screen says that the signal is weak and shows snow.


Is this a replacement set? Plugged in the same antenna?
Is this the analogue tuner you're using or it's DTV (Digital TV tuner)?
If you're in the USA and Canada there are no analogue transmissions.
You'll find the tuner selection in Menu and a sub menu headed Inputs.
If in the UK some regions have closed down analogue signals already and some are coming up to doing so, concluding with my region, London in June, 2012.
If you're not in these countries you'll get your area's info. by entering 'Digital TV changeover' into Search on your web browser.

I NEED SONY BRAVIA T32 FULL MANUAL...how to conect to computer and camera


Hello there,

Here is the link to the full manual:
http://support.sony-asia.com.edgesuite.net/consumer/IM/4110401121.pdf

Before connecting your devices...
The signals that enter the TV and connected devices will need to be output in the correct format using the suitable connections. Below are the different types of video connectors. When connecting the TV, use the inputs that are available on your devices that provide the best video performance.
Video performance level Name Aspect Signal transmitted Separate audio connection required arrw.jpg HDMI cnn_hdmi.jpg Picture + Sound No DVI*1 cnn_dvi.jpg Picture Yes
l.jpg r.jpg
L-AUDIO-R Component video cnn_component.jpg Picture S-Video cnn_s_video.jpg Picture Composite video cnn_composite.jpg Picture RF/Coaxial cnn_coaxial.jpg Picture + Sound No
*1 If the equipment has a DVI jack and not an HDMI jack, connect the DVI jack to the HDMI IN (with HDMI-to-DVI cable and/or adapter jack), and connect the audio jack to the AUDIO IN (L/R) jacks of HDMI IN. (The DVI connector is for video signals only) To enjoy the best visual experience with your system, it is preferable to connect your best devices with the highest quality connections available. For example: your Blu-Ray Disc player or HD Set Top Box with HDMI, followed by your DVD player with Component, then your Video Cassette Recorder with S-video etc.Note: The quality of the picture also strongly depends on the quality of the cable used.
HDMI The High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting high definition video and audio signals. HDMI provides an interface between any compatible digital audio/video source, such as a set-top box, a DVD player, a PC, a video game system, or an AV receiver and a compatible digital audio and/or video monitor, such as a digital television (DTV). DVI The Digital Visual Interface is capable of transmitting high definition video, but does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA). It is possible to connect an HDMI device to a DVI device using a HDMI to DVI adapter. Component video Component video is an analogue connection. It is capable of transmitting high definition signals. Component does not transmit sound. You will need to use the audio connectors of your device (usually Optical/Coaxial digital, or RCA) S-Video Separate video, abbreviated S-Video and also known as Y/C is an analogue video signal that carries the video data as two separate signals (brightness and colour), unlike composite video which carries the entire set of signals in one signal line. S-Video, as most commonly implemented, carries standard definition video. It does not carry audio on the same cable. Composite video Composite video is an analogue video (no sound) format. This is the connector you should use if you do not have any other connector available, in terms of quality. RF/Coaxial RF Coaxial Cable connection is used for transferring television signals (audio and video) originating from an antenna or cable box to a Television.



Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

Hi i have hisence 42 inch tv will not tune in keeps saying no signal yet me old tv is fine


Hi there
I am assuming your new TV is now Digital. If so, it will be looking for a different signal to the old TV which was probably analogue. You may need a aerial upgrade/diagnostic to determine if you are recieving a digital signal. Or you can tune in the analogue channels, by switching the new TV to analogue, through the inputs/menu, and then i suggest autotune.
Hope this helps

I have a JVC G40 DVD home theater system and when I play DVD's the voice and picture don't match up. Specifically, Peoples lips move and then a second later what they say is heard...how do I fix this?


When viewing on Digital TV:-
Sometimes Audio and Video signal can not be transmitted simultaneously due to additional process time for the video signal compared to that of the audio signal.
Often video signal takes more time than the audio signal to convert from analogue signal to digital signal in the Digital TV.
It may result in mismatch of the picture and sound.
In the TH-G30/40's HD AV Sync menu, you can adjust the audio signal delay for simultaneous AV signal transmission
1. Delay time can be varied in 10msec steps.(0 to 300ms)
2. Delay time is different between TV Brands.
So you need to adjust the delay time for correct lip-sync.
The adjustment is listed in the instruction book page12

Cannot get good tv signal since ITV and other channels have gone digital in the last 3 weeks. The picture keeps breaking up and the sound goes intermittently.


The transition from analogue TV broadcasting has been painfull in some areas. the only way to get out of this frustration is to buy yourself a digital set top box . This will convert the digital TV signals to analogue form so that your TV can pick them clearly. In any case ,the trend is to have all analogue transmissions phased out altogether

My Phillips SLC4 flat screen TV has suddenly


The problem has cleared itself a day later after being switched on/off a few times.I suspect the 'computer part' of the TV (channel processor, instruction decoder etc) received maybe a power glitch or an illegal infrared instruction (2 remotes used at once for example) and 'locked up' leaving just the analogue side operating.
I was going to continue happily using it with just the analogue side slaved to my Hd recorder for digital signals but it seems to have got over whatever it was that upset it.

Digital Television sound synchronisation


The pixel problem your having is signal strength related, the sound is always affected first. If your on cable, have them come out and check the signal strength first.

Wide screen adjustment does not hold keeps going to default narrow screen


Hi,

Most analogue TV's do this because the analogue signal has no way to tell the TV that its a widescreen picture.

European TV's that use scart cables have a switching pin on the cable so the digital set top box can tell the TV that the picture is widescreen.

If you're in the US or down under this info wont be much help though.

Hope this helps
