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.

Go to menu, digital setup, then auto tune all the channels again. it worked fine for me :D

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.

If you scan your channels you will find out if it is digital. Say for instance you get channels 2-1, 16-3, 12-2, 12-3, then your TV is digital. Now if all your channels have no dashes and your channels come up 2, 12, 9, 16, and so on then you have an analog TV. Since this is a walmart brand there is not any online support that I can see. If you bought this a few years ago then again your tv is more than likely analog.

My tv has lost its colour, and its green or yellow sometimes.

Okay that means the other GUNS went out when i refer to guns I mean the other blue and red, they need to be replaced pretty costly but if you value that TV I'd do it.

sounds like bad CRT, some of these sonys have had defective CRT issues, usually all will come and go sooner or later (all 3 bad), you can pull the speaker grill off(either 2 1/4" screws on bottom or 6 1/4" on back sides) and pull off the Crt box cover (2'X3' piece) and lightly tap the CRT's with tv on, if they flare or get colored streaks in pix they are bad, CALL SONY 800 # and complain, also could adjust G2 (Screen control for color) for short patch. Will need new crts.
