Question about Sony KDF-E50A10 50 in. LCD HDTV

1 Answer

When in Antenna mode (DTV from the Aerial) some channels do not tune in. typically I can get the lower channels from 2.1 to 20.2 but between 11.1 to 23.2 the signal strength is below 50%. Yet the signals from Channels 30.1 tp 66.2 come in clear. You probably think its the antenna signal and or TV Station signal. Well I have a cheaper DTV that has no problem pulling in these stations and the signal level is showing higher than the Sony TV? Any Ideas... I think there must me a fine tuning adjustment or AGC is not working?

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.

How do I get a DTV signal on my vizio

Connect a TV aerial/antenna that is known to be aligned correctly for your local TV stations.

On the TV remote, press the TV/DTV button. This will toggle between the old style analogue tuner and the newer DTV tuner. Then you need to run the TV Tuning wizard.

Yes its antenna problem?maybe your house too closed signal your antenna is getting hard to find signal for your TV.

You must use a Outdoor Antenna to widen your signal range.

And also i suggest that you move you antenna outside your house or at your roof to be able to enhance the signal for your TV.

Hope my solution will help.

Your lack of channels is from a specific group and is usually caused by poor signal from your aerial. A new larger aerial may solve that.
Freesat is OK if you have a dish installed.

I am assuming that you are using cable and not an aerial/antenna.

On your concern "...channels do not tune...correct channel numbers...", it is possible that when you re-tuned the TV your setting was set to AIR or STD, try to re-tune again but this time pls verify that you are in CABLE mode. If on the other hand you are using aerial/antenna, then it is the other way around.

Channel 0 would automatically be your Audio/Video (which is where your DVD/VCR is connected). If you re-tune, chances are that Channel 0 ) would be back. To be on the safe side, pls power on likewise the DVD/VCR.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
