Question about Hitachi 42PD7800 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Problem with digital tuner.

The digital tuner on my 42pd8700 appears to have frozen. When I switch to the analogue tuner, no problem, when I press the DTT button to switch to the digital picture, I get a black speckly screen with other odd colours in it. If I switch the set off and back on the screen returns as purple. Turning the set off for a few minutes and removing the mains has had no effect. Is this a faulty digital tuner or something else? Help!!

Just got digital service, can't tune the stations


Check and make sure that your TV has compatibility tuner [analogue / Digital] provided inside. If not, you have to buy a digital to analogue converter to receive digital transmission. Refer the device user manual for details. If f the tuner is digital/analogue compatible; and you can't receive digital channels, it is faulty. The tuner have to be replaced. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

Satellite dish icon unavailable so cant retune


Hi,

Switch over to analogue and press menu, the Sat dish icon should be there, if its not there then the tuner board/video board may have gone faulty.

Sat icon is not available in DTV mode anyway...!

Thanks

Does the Bush LT26M1CA have an analogue tuner


Hi, Your Tv does indeed have an analog tuner for UHF and VHF reception. Remember you need to have an external antenna connected to receive anything via the analog input. On your remote in the upper right hand corner is a button labeled tv/dtv that will switch back and forth between your analog and freeview digital. Good Luck, this should Fixya!

Frozen digital screen


Set TV to standby and press Info, menu, mute then power. The set should turn on with the service menu available scroll down until you select reset press right hand arrow next to enter and then enter. TV will turn off. When switched on it goes into Plug and Play mode to reset the analogue and digital tuner. Allow a full reset then you should be ok.

Dtv frozen


I had a similar problem and the way to solve this is to reset the set from the remote.  Set TV to standby and press Info, menu, mute then power.  The set should turn on with the service menu available scroll down until you select reset press right hand arrow next to enter and then enter.  TV will turn off.  When switched on it goes into Plug and Play mode to reset the analogue and digital tuner.  Allow a full reset then you should be ok.
