Re: no digital channels

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.

Re: no digital channels

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.

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.

Hi I have just retuned my tv but have found that the identity number(ie BBC1 is D.001, ITV is D.003) for channel 5 is D.800 which Guide plus uses but the TV recognises channel 5 as 005! therefore I cannot...

The retuning process is as follows:

  1. Press the [i+] or MENU button on the remote control to display the DIGITAL INFO menu.
  2. Press the BLUE button to display the MAIN MENU.
  3. Press the UP or DOWN buttons to highlight AUTO TUNING then press the OK button to display the AUTO TUNING MENU.
  4. Press the RED button to start the auto tuning process for all available digital channels.
  5. Wait for the process to complete.

If you wish to CANCEL the auto tuning process whilst it is processing then press the BLUE button at any time.

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

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.

Technika tv lcd 19-907 tuning in to sky in bedroom.

Hi i had the same problem but i have sorted mine now. What i was doing wrong was i wasnt tuning in the analoge channels only the freeview digital ones. To do this you need to first turn your tv on. Then press the "source" button, this will bring up a little menu at the top left hand side. When this menu comes up press the "Programme +" button (the one that you use for changing channels near the volume button) press this until you get up to "TV", when T.V is highlighted just wait 3 secs and it will switch over. You will probably get a blue screen with a no signal message (you are now on analogue) when you get this blue screen press the "tune" button. It will automatically start tuning in all of your channels, at first they will be fuzzy but as it works they will become clearer. Your sky channel will also be tuned in. When mine tuned in it didnt tune them in on the right numbers though, bbc2 was on number 1 etc. If you ever need to use a playstation or something it goes into the scart connection at the side of the t.v and you need to press "source" and go up to "scart". To get back onto the digital channels just press "dtv/dvd".
hope i helped!
