Hi,

Power the TV off and uplug from the mains, now remove the aerial, now press the standby button the TV, now plug the mains back in and switch to a DTV channel, wait 5 secs and then put the aerial back in whilst still on that channel, now rescan.

If that didn't work, reset the TV to factory defaults and rescan again.

Thanks

TV won't recognize channels. Help


Without knowing where you are in the world let me ask
are you trying to tune analogue or digital stations
Here in australia analogue tv has been discontinued and all transmissions are in digital.
your tv even though it says HDready does not have a digital tuner
so if you are scanning for digital you won't have any luck

If i am correct the only option will be a digital set top box or a newer model tv..

Auto retune has wiped everything. Help


There is the digital tuner (DTV) and the analogue tuner (TV). Make sure you are tuning the digital side as there are no longer any analogue TV broadcasts in the UK.

PSCAN is a short form for Progressive Scan - a line scanning format used for High Definition TV. Standard TVs use Interlaced scanning. On your DVD/VHS player, the VHS is an analogue signal recorded in interlaced mode so is fine for a standard TV. The DVD is a digital signal and cazn be processed for progressive scan output in order to produce a better picture on a High definition TV (or a TV capable of handling progressive scan). If you cannot to your TV via the HD outputs then you should be able to set the DVD player to output interlaced instead of progressive scan.

Hi,

Your TV has a dual tuner - one for analogue and one for digital although they are contained on the same tuner board. It's possible that the digital tuner has failed, in which case the tuner board will most likely need to be replaced, but often this problem can be resolved with a "hard" reset. Turn the TV off and unplug it. Remove all the cables from the back, leave it for at least 5 minutes and then re-connect only the cable from the tuner source. i.e aerial/antenna. Make sure you are in Digital TV mode (DTV), then run the channel scan again.

If it works turn the TV off, re-connect all of your other devices and you should be able to resume using the TV as normal.

If this doesn't work, you may need to have the digital tuner replaced. The analogue and digital channel feeds are from the same source. As the analogue channels are working there is no obvious fault with the feed or cables.

Please try this first and then post back for further assistance if needed.

Regards,
BElectric
