Re: tuning in the tv

Most TV's auto search feature will try both the Cable and the Air frequencies, but perhaps yours doesn't. Go to the menu page for tuner setup and make sure it is set on Air (might be called broadcast) and then run the channel search.
Cable channels and Broadcast channels (above channel 12) are not the same frequencies.
Hope Ya Fix It!

No dvb signal found, please click ok to tune. Tune then does not work and no channels.

If you have another TV fed from the same antenna, I assume you have a splitter/distribution amplifier because you know you cannot just join two cables together don't you?
It is more than likely the splitter/amplifier, cable or connections rather than the TV but to make sure you must move the TV in the other room and try it on the suspect cable before condemning the TV.
Signal problems are usually due to water ingress and this could have happened on just one cable.
Failing that, the TV input could have failed. It is not common but does happen now and then.

Why can't my TV find a digital signal when connected to my digital ready aerial? Tuning for digital stations finds none. Does this TV require a set top box? If not how can I make it find and play n

hey, when connect any aerial in the back of the TV make sure you have a look for the name of the connection you use ( Skart,ext1,ext2,usb,hdmi1, hdmi2 etc.) so you can do a search on that extension. if you connect something on Hdmi1 and search on hdmi2 you won't find anything. you have to search on Hdmi1. PS: good luck.

I have an indoor digital aerial connected to a free view box but when I automatically tune the TV it comes up with no channels found check aerial connection

Possibly. Try rotating the antenna a little bit and retry tuning. Keep on doing this until you get your channels. If this doesn't work, raise the antenna as high as possible and try again.

Hannspree TV tuning from aerial problem.

do you mean if you hooked up the tv with the aerial antenna can not get any channel? ok if just a white raster only and doesn't scan or tuned even manually and auto search, the cause is bad tuner.

Polaroid FLU-2632 channel searching

Often when using a Sky box, one doesn't use the channel tuning feature of the Polaroid HDTV. Often one connects the Sky box to a component video input, and the Sky box does the tuning.

I hope that helps.
