Try to reprogram your channels. Read that section in your manual on how to do it as every tv is different on it's requirements. You might have to switch to your antenna to cable if your using basic cable, and make sure if you are to check with your cable station to know what cable signal they are broadcasting at.

Hi quinny 1982,
The first thing to check do is look in the manual on how to do a factory reset.
Once you've done that look at this page on how to check the signal strength the TV is receiving. Anything less than 50% and most tuners will not display a picture.
If the signal strength is okay then try another auto tune.
If your still having a problem then I'd suggest you you might have a faulty unit. However, a lot the time companies like to blame your reception area, TV Antenna (Ariel) or cable length or quality. Yes, old coaxial cable used for analogue TV is not very good when used with digital equipment (not a surprise)!
From what you've described, if you can only get a mono signal I'd be surprised it that's actually a digital channel.
Don't forget to check your Antenna connectors.
Hope this is helpful.
Best of luck.
Spare head 2.
