Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

We have an aged Sony rm-x800 freeview box which has worked perfectly for some 4 years. Having just returned from a week away - during which there was a power cut - there is now no sound emanating from the TV when using the freeview box. All of the rest of the rm-x800 fucntions appear to be fine. The TV still works fine with sound when running though its own analogue tunied stations. Any thoughts gratefully received.

Power off the free view box and power it on again, sometimes works as does re connecting the leads.
Hope that helps.

My Sony DV3 has suddenly stopped providing any signal to the TV. I can switch it on and off but otherwise it is lifeless


Could be old age but have you even tried to unplug the unit for while and plug it back to see if it will reboot itself?

Tv is 4 years old yesterday it lost its built in freeview channels. when trying to get the menu up it appears for a second then goes off. Tv still receives sky and picture is good


Hello pip_o

It's possibly a defective digital tuner, but the vanishing menu suggests a more serious (and expensive) fault with the main/AV board, assuming it's an LCD TV. It's impossible to be certain which one without doing some testing, but due to the inherent dangers with high-voltage electronics, I don't advise on self-repair for TVs.

If you're looking for an inexpensive solution and the TV is no longer covered by any warranty, I'd suggest buying an external Freeview box to connect to your TV. This would also enable you to upgrade to Freeview HD. Being 4 years old, your TV will not have been fitted with a DVB-T2 (Freeview HD) tuner.

If you want to try this solution, I can recommend the following box, which is great value at just £25.

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/270828771661

They are described as "reconditioned", but I've bought and installed 2 of these for my own customers recently and both have been brand-new. The majority of these are unused returns which Tesco are consequently not allowed to sell described as "new". For a lesser known brand, I've been quite impressed with some of the recent Technika products and they are easy to install and come supplied with all the necessary cables, etc. Additionally, if it doesn't work for any reason, you will be able to return it under UK Distance Selling regulations.

Before purchasing this (or any other) Freeview HD box, please check your TV has a spare HDMI input socket as SCART cannot carry an HD signal. If you don't have a spare HDMI socket, I'd also check your TV has a spare SCART input socket or you will need to disconnect your Sky box every time you want to use the Freeview box - which brings me to my final point . . .

. . . Off the top of my head, I can't think of any Freeviews channels which aren't available on Sky, so as long as you can still use your TV for Sky, do you really need to spend any money on it?

Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Regards,
BElectric

try another source i.e. dvd player/pc/game console to see if the problem goes away.

if still the same, then it could be settings in the tv (but only accessible to technicians) call them for help.

if different, return/get new freeview box.

HOW LONGH ON AVERAGE WILL A FREEVIW BOX LAST ?


Depends on Brand, Age , Ambiant Temperature, Manufacturing Construction. Alot of them break due to heat build up inside on the power supply capacitors due to poor ventilation. I Mean a freeview box can last anywhere from 10 minutes to 4 years.

My Sony KD28DL10U digital TV will not tune into freeview


I think this is one of the TV's that wont work as part of the Digital Switchover as it's too old. My Brother has the same TV and has had to buy a new Set top box to get Freeview.

We have a Thompson box in the lounge and until recently we had a Technix box in the conservatory. Both gave full coverage and good quality until a few weeks ago, when the Technix box gave very poor quality...


Can you try a non-working box in the Thompson box's location in the lounge? If you swap the boxes in the lounge and they both work normally then you must suspect that the cable supplying the conservatory must be the problem.

Cracked frame on brand new sony bravia 52" HD LCD TV


I would definetly call Sony and if it is something you can't live with return it, but remember impact damage voids the warranty, in other words if you were to drop the tv trying to return it the warranty is void. As much as you paid for that tv it should be cosmeticly a functionaly perfect. Let me know if I can provide further assistance and please rate this solution. Lone99star
