Default pin for most devices is 0000 or 000000. If you set it yourself it will be difficult to access.

SOURCE: No BBC channels available after retuning Sony Trinitron TV

When TV channels are moved from one frequency to another frequency that was previously used by a different channel (sorry, but there's no simple way of saying that !) as has happened recently in th UK, some digital TVs and digiboxes struggle to sort the channel list out properly and channels can go missing as you describe.

If your equipment has the option to delete all currently stored channels (normally in the tuning menu options) then do so and then do a full re-tune.
Sometimes, this solves the problem as the equipment is no longer aware of any previous use of a frequency and just loads every channel it finds.

If this doesnt work, or your equipment doesnt have the option, then there is normally the option soemwhere in the menus to retore the item to "factory defaults/configuration". This will clear all previously stored channels and after a full re-tune your missing chanels should be there. However, any other configuration changes you previously made, e.g picture size, output type (RGB/NSCT/etc), etc will be lost and you'll need to set these again.

NB. some regions of the country have lost some channels temporarily now until after the switch over programme completes at the end of 2012. If you visit the Freeview website, this will tell you if your area is affected.

Just go to your TV settings and just do a full reinstall ,like the day you brought your TV ,below is from the web site your tv will work hope this will help.
The Freeview TV guide is being updated on Wednesday, 3 September 2014 to create extra capacity for new services. As a result, Children's and News channels will move to new channel numbers.
• The Children's genre will move from channel numbers in the 70s to start at 120
• The News genre will move from channel numbers in the 80s to start at 130
To update their guide viewers simply need to retune their Freeview TVs and digital recorders or boxes where equipment does not pick up the changes automatically. On-screen messages will prompt viewers to retune late afternoon 3 September 2014 onwards.
Viewers who don't retune will not lose channels - services will remain accessible at their old numbers. However, Digital UK and Freeview recommend viewers retune from time-to-time to ensure they have access to all available services in their area.

My freeview player will not let me retune it, it haws a pin code block!!!


If you havent selected a PIN yourself, then it should still be the default.

The manual that came with it will tell you the default, but if you dont have the manual anymore, defaults commonly are 0000, 1111, 1234, 9999.

If you have set a PIN but cant remember it, somewhere in the menus is usually a "reset to factory defaults/configuration" that may reset the PIN back to the default. Otherwise, you'll just have to keep guessing your PIN !

No programme info ona Sony TV after the Freeview retune


Unfortunately you haven't said which exact model of Sony tv you have, but there were a lot of their models which didn't behave correctly after the digital retune. In most cases this led to a digital tv freeze.

The official advice is to first try the retune again; from experience I'd add that you need to try it at least twice and to do so at different times of the day in case there is temporary unplanned signal disruption or other environmental factors.

If that does not work then you need to contact Sony directly for advice on 0870 511 1999.

Please cut and paste the following web address into your browser and you'll see a list of Freeview equipment which is known to have incompatibilities with the retune (you need to have Adobe Reader installed). Unfortunately the list has proven to be somewhat less than comprehensive.

I hope that you have found my advice to be of assistance and in return ask only that you remember to rate my answer.

Resetting my TECHNIKA STB9007LE Freeview Receiver


Hi there

It appears that somebody at Technika thought it would be a wonderful wheeze to the box ask for a PIN when retuned. My daughter had the brainwave of putting in four zeros and voila!!!

Hope that solves your problem

Cant retune my digtal freeview as my picture keeps freezing


The retuning process is as follows:

  1. Press the [i+] or MENU button on the remote control to display the DIGITAL INFO menu.
  2. Press the BLUE button to display the MAIN MENU.
  3. Press the UP or DOWN buttons to highlight AUTO TUNING then press the OK button to display the AUTO TUNING MENU.
  4. Press the RED button to start the auto tuning process for all available digital channels.
  5. Wait for the process to complete.

If you wish to CANCEL the auto tuning process whilst it is processing then press the BLUE button at any time.

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

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

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.
