After retuning lost access to record / playback on menue and a games button has appeared instead. Have tried turn off/onn and revert back to factory on numerous times without success

Also be sure to include your model number when asking questions, it helps a lot. Always try to check your owners manual to see if there is a reset to factory button or series of buttons to reset device.

How can I fix a tv that has been reset to factory reset

Try resetting it again, resetting it should bring it back to the way you received it from the store. Unplug it first, then plug it back in, then try the factory reset.

How to retrieve lost channels on digital tv

To restore missing channels, you need to retune your digital receiver (box or TV).

The retuning process runs a scan and finds all the available channels. Your box may have an Add New Channels option that you can use, but this may not pick up other changes such as channels being moved to a different multiplex or removed altogether.
How to retune
  1. Switch on your digital box and/or TV.
  2. Press Menu on the remote control.
  3. Select the Setup or Installation option.
  4. Select the 'First time installation' option (sometimes called 'Factory reset', 'Full retune' or 'Default settings').
  5. Press OK if your equipment asks if you want to delete all your channels. Don't worry, this is normal.
  6. If you are prompted for a code, try 0000 or 1234.
  7. Channels will be automatically installed. This may take a few minutes and your equipment may shut down and restart.
  8. After retuning, you will have to redo your Favourites list and other settings. If you retune a digital TV recorder, you also should reset future recordings.

Forgoten pin number

I read that there is a factory reset that you can do. This will return the unit to how it was when it came out of the box.

Firstly you have to enable the diagnostic functions by quickly pressing the following sequence on the remote:


Then on the Technical Information pages there will be a reset option. This clears everything - channels, favourites, PIN etc.

There will be a default PIN that comes pre-programmed in and the instructions should mention this.

Lost bbc1 on digital only. retune and factory rest fail to fix problem. bbc1 received by another digibox on same aerial.

Try retuning again and then look at the EPG as it may be allocated to a different number than you are used to. If so then you will need to edit your channel list.
