Digital tuner seems to be broken

I have had this TV for about three months. All seemed fine at first but one day I was watching a digital channel and it went off. Ever since then I have been unable to get any digital channels despite having tried to re-tune it several times. I can get analogue channels ok. Have tried TV in two different places with the same result.

Any ideas? Could the digital tuner be broken?

You'll need to go into service mode and do a factory reset.
To enter service mode you'll need to press these buttons on your remote in the following order:-
Standby-info-menu-mute-standby.You'll need to do it fairly quickly and be patient it doesn't always go into it first time,don't press and hold the buttons.
The service menu should appear on the screen.Use the up /down cursor to scan down to option number 12 (factory reset)and then press the right cursor wait will appear on the screen and the set will go to standby(don't worry this is normal)
Reboot the set and retune and all should be well

First try and unplug the tv for 30 min. Then try it. If this does not fix it, go into your menu and reprogram the channels. You will find auto program in the setup or install part of the menu. It should work from there. If not, the control board is bad. You or a repair shop will need to replace it.

Take the set and reprogram it where one of the other sets are ok. Digital signal is not so forgiving as analog, also place one of the sets that is receiving that station in place of the not receiving one. It's possible that the signal level at the bad spot is on the border line and that model can't hold on to it. You may also check visio's web site for any software up grade to your model that you may have to down load.

I have a Panasonic TH-58PZ700U Which drops channels? Will have the channel one day and the next its gone then it will reappear! Is it the tuner going bad?

I would replace the DG Board. There hard to come by for this TV. I saw one on eBay about a week ago for $75.00 witch is a very good price for this part.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

I can't seem to get any digital channels

Before scanning for channel, check to see if the Antenna input is set to Cable or Antenna. If you have rabbit ears or and outside antenna then set it to antenna. If you have cable then set it to cable. Then rescan for channels. If this has already been set then the next step is to check the antenna or cable feed. If possible plug the antenna or cable feed into another TV that is known to be working correctly. If it is capable of receiving digital channels then the problem is likely the Samsungs ATSC tuner and will require service.
If neither TV is getting Digital channels then I will need more info on your antenna setup and where you are located. I am a pro on TV antennas and reception.
Hope this helps
Have a great Day

Locked out of digital antenna in setup. I had it

1. ensure that you are on the TV tuner when you are trying to scan channels
2. if analog tuner works, but you cannot access digital tuner....the digital tuner is broken

When you turned channels before, did it switch between analog and digital channels seamlessly or did you need to press a button to acces digital channels seperately?

If you accesed digital channels seamlessly, #2 is not likely
If seperately, #2 is very likely.

Tv set just lost its ability to display digital channels

Your problem is definitely the input signal source to your tv. It is extremely rare where a new tv has a tuner signal sensitivity problem. The best thing to do is to replace your current set of rabbit ears with a different set of powered rabbit ears that have a higher gain rating with a variable gain control. Please note that the gain control setting is critical when setting up your tuner for auto-programming. If the gain control is set too low or too high it will result in your symptom.

If you still can't get it to work you could try buying a line amplifier which you would install to the rabbit ears before the tv. If you still can't get it to work you'll have no choice but to purchase an outside antennae as a result of your being in a weak signal area as signal quality changes by such things as the switch over to digital upcoming and environmental changes.

No channels on list

You have to search for the channels. Go to your setup menu, and go to setup, then select TV, then do auto channel search. It may or may not have to be set on tuner to get to the TV options.

Is this TV connected to a digital box or directly to an antenna? If its connected to a box then suspect the box first. If the box has been swapped with another one and still does the same thing, then the TV has a bad tuner and/or digital board. The tuner in most TV's is part of the digital board and must be replaced together.
