Grundig colour tv lost digital channels

Got a Grundig colour tv model GUVCD2800B. About 2 months ago all the digital channels disappeared. No matter what menu I went into they wouldn't show and also there was no menu to get them back. I looked in the manual and it said to view / tune in your digital channels turn the tv off then turn it on pressing the P+ / P- buttons then select the channel you wanted. Tried this but after waiting a few minutes with an egg timer showing on the screen, it couldn't find the digital ones, just the analogue.
My friend came round and pressed loads of buttons and somehow we managed to get into a menu that allowed us to reset the digital channels and turn on the digital receiver which when we went into that menu for some reason had been turned off.
Got it working but the other day lost the digital channels again. My mate came round but we couldn't get that menu back up.
It seems there is a hidden menu for turning on / off the digital receiver which is not listed in the manual.
Any ideas?

    I have exactly the same problem with same TV, the digital channels disappeared along with the menu option about a week ago. I have just spoken with the custumer support (call centre) at Grundig who weren't a lot of help!!!

    Thanks for information.

    I have unplugged the set, took all the leads out, left for over 4 hours then put back together again but ** joy.

    Did manage to get up a**ther menu the first time I had the problem but can't access it **w. This extra menu let me reset the digital receiver which worked but then the digital channels have **w gone again and can't find this menu again.

    There is ** mention in their guides of 2 menus - I presume it is like sky where you have a hidden menu by selecting certain buttons but this is **t in the manual. The dealers don't k**w either so at a loss at the moment.

    I have the same TV and same problem. I've tried unplugging everything (arial, scart, power) and reconnecting everything as I did when I first bought it; still no luck. I'll try leaving it disconnected over night next time.

I'm sorry, but I have not worked with Grundig TV's, radios yes, TV's no. However, The menu shouldn't be hidden. The first thing I would try would be to UNPLUG the set from the wall, wait about a minute and plug it in again. This action should reboot the micro processor. On some sets, there are two levels of menus, main and advanced. You would want "channel setup" and /or channel scan. You may also look in the back of the manual and see if it list some service dealers that you could call for help. I hope this helps.

It's October 2012 and I have a problem with my exact same model of JVC TV which has worked fine since i bought it in January. In fact it has worked the best out of the four that we have in the house working off the same aerial until 4 days ago. I tried retuneing and then the problem expanded to more channels. I tried to reset to factory options and then do a retune but lost all the channels. I have again reset and retuned and I'm back with channels that I can only tune into for between 4 and 15 seconds before the screen goes blank. None of the other televisions are affected. Digital UK website show no works to transmitters in our area and JVC are impossible to contact. Their site sends one around in circles in a most frustrating and unhelpful way. I will not be buying JVC again. Any help offered would be gratefully accepted!

I have grundig lenaro 32"tv

Sounds like you're only viewing analogue channels.
Go into Menu and find Inputs and select & choose DTV. This will restore reception of Freeview (Digital TV) channels.
