So nothing in your setup has changed, but now it will not go to digital channels? Are you using an antenna or going through a cable box / cable from the wall (underground) to get your digital signal?

Please let me know and we can figure this out, also if you know the model # of the Bravia you have that would be very helpful. Just reply to my answer here and I can help.

Thanks,
Tim

    That is very strange indeed... it sounds like the digital board in your TV is having problems... the tuner basically. It would be less expensive to get cable or satellite at this point and just get the digital signal that way. To replace the digital board in your TV will cost much more than a years worth of cable or satellite, probably two years worth really.

    Unfortunately that is what is wrong though, it's possible the electrical storms took out the digital tuner on your TV.. in fact I am quite sure that's exactly what has happened, not much else makes sense.

    Let me know if you need further explanation... it unfortunately has taken out a part of your TV that tunes the digital channels.

    Thanks,
    Tim

I have done an autotune on my sony bravia tv but am not getting channel 9 sbs. the television in the bedroom is a smaller digital tv and that picks up all the channels. the two tv's are connected


Is the splitter an amplified splitter or not? Have you tried the channel search when you connect the antenna directly to the TV? (Disconnect the cables from the splitter and use a coupler to join them together.) Tuners do vary in their sensitivity. For digital signals, your TV should report the signal strength. This is often under the Settings sub-menu. Some TVs will give this information in the Channel Edit option.

If the straight through connection gives a better signal, check your antenna direction and try a different splitter. Amplification will often help; however, when my amplified splitter was damaged the less sensitive tuner lost a number of channels that the other TV received. (Looking at the signal strength, one TV was getting adequate signal with one bar out of 8. The other needed at least 4 bars to process the signal.)

I hope this helps.

I have the same problem, the only solution I found so far is to disconnect the TV from the mains supply - not very comfortable. The problem seems to happen more and more frequently.

Hi,

Your TV has a dual tuner - one for analogue and one for digital although they are contained on the same tuner board. It's possible that the digital tuner has failed, in which case the tuner board will most likely need to be replaced, but often this problem can be resolved with a "hard" reset. Turn the TV off and unplug it. Remove all the cables from the back, leave it for at least 5 minutes and then re-connect only the cable from the tuner source. i.e aerial/antenna. Make sure you are in Digital TV mode (DTV), then run the channel scan again.

If it works turn the TV off, re-connect all of your other devices and you should be able to resume using the TV as normal.

If this doesn't work, you may need to have the digital tuner replaced. The analogue and digital channel feeds are from the same source. As the analogue channels are working there is no obvious fault with the feed or cables.

Please try this first and then post back for further assistance if needed.

Regards,
BElectric

No digital picture on digital TV


Are you getting a snowy picture, If so, you`re still on analogue. If you are on a digital channel with say no signal, you should get a blank screen with either a message saying no signal or a dot on the screen. Ian

Sony Bravia does not see my digital channels


Hi buck lite,
Your cable company is telling the truth, you have digital cable. When auto scanned for digital channels the tv is lookig for OTR(over the air) signals. These are broadcast signals you will need an antenna to receive. Depending where you are and the type of antenna you use you probably could pick up some digital channels. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. Lone99star

No Analogue or digital channels!


Hello - I just posted something too. Not sure if its the same problem as yours. If you get a response from elsewhere, please let me know. I'll do the same. In our case we have a blank screen with a bar running across the top of the screen reading 'No signal' on left side and 'C611' on the right side. The 611 might be the last channel we were on !
