The Sagem PVR 6280 is specifically listed as a model which will have problems with the retune.

See the address below for a chart of affected models, but the official advice is that you must contact Sagem directly on 0845 0900 316 for either an over the air update or an update DVD depending upon the manufacturer.

I tuned my goodmans LD1945WD TV for the freeview channels. After using them for a couple of weeks my DTV channel only shows a black screen. I can't change channels, rescan or receive any freeview...


Check out a reset to this set first. If it do not help you, check and replace the main system control memory IC. Contact any service technician. To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Surf the site with patience. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

How to retune freeview tv


You need to do a Full Factory Reset tuning rather than just a rescan.

Rescan simply looks at the place holders where the old channels were stored and refreshes them. A Factory Reset (A.K.A. Shipping Condition) wipes the channel memories and starts again fresh.

Tv is 4 years old yesterday it lost its built in freeview channels. when trying to get the menu up it appears for a second then goes off. Tv still receives sky and picture is good


Hello pip_o

It's possibly a defective digital tuner, but the vanishing menu suggests a more serious (and expensive) fault with the main/AV board, assuming it's an LCD TV. It's impossible to be certain which one without doing some testing, but due to the inherent dangers with high-voltage electronics, I don't advise on self-repair for TVs.

If you're looking for an inexpensive solution and the TV is no longer covered by any warranty, I'd suggest buying an external Freeview box to connect to your TV. This would also enable you to upgrade to Freeview HD. Being 4 years old, your TV will not have been fitted with a DVB-T2 (Freeview HD) tuner.

If you want to try this solution, I can recommend the following box, which is great value at just £25.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270828771661

They are described as "reconditioned", but I've bought and installed 2 of these for my own customers recently and both have been brand-new. The majority of these are unused returns which Tesco are consequently not allowed to sell described as "new". For a lesser known brand, I've been quite impressed with some of the recent Technika products and they are easy to install and come supplied with all the necessary cables, etc. Additionally, if it doesn't work for any reason, you will be able to return it under UK Distance Selling regulations.

Before purchasing this (or any other) Freeview HD box, please check your TV has a spare HDMI input socket as SCART cannot carry an HD signal. If you don't have a spare HDMI socket, I'd also check your TV has a spare SCART input socket or you will need to disconnect your Sky box every time you want to use the Freeview box - which brings me to my final point . . .

. . . Off the top of my head, I can't think of any Freeviews channels which aren't available on Sky, so as long as you can still use your TV for Sky, do you really need to spend any money on it?

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

You should be able to get all the standard freeview channels without bothering with TopUP TV.

Follow the Instructions on Page 24 of the Manual at the link below.

http://www.tradenet.sharp.co.uk/files/Consumer_Electronics/DTR/TUTV322H/TUTV322H279.pdf

If this doesn't tune all the Stanadard Freeview Channels then you're not getting a strong enough signal for this unit so it won't be able to upgrade the TopUP TV side of it.

Freeeview update has not allowed BBC1, BBC2 Channel 7 and 8 to be viwed. They have been deleted from the menu on digital. I can get BBC1 and BBC2 on analog.


Make sure all cables are securely connected to your Freeview Box or Freeview TV before you begin

Do a Factory Reset of your Freeview TV and then do a rescan of new channels. If successfull then all channels should be back and working.

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
