You don't say how clear the analogue picture is. If it's snowy, or ghosting (double images etc) your signal may be too weak to produce an acceptable result for digital signals to work at all.
If this is not the case you may have a faulty digital tuner. This assuming that the set was working and then stopped.

There is a tiny component in the digital tuner that may be the cause of your issue. That component is a surface mount fuse. Unless you are very confident with your soldering abilities you need to take your set to your nearest Sony authorised service centre for repair. Sony uses a "board level repair" policy for the digital tuners in their sets so there is no service information available for that part of the TV - meaning that if the service centre you take the set to want to change the whole board then that is because that is Sony's policy and that they are possibly not aware of the root cause of the failure being a 50c part. This fuse is very tiny and not an easy solder if your unexperienced but it can be replaced. There is also the option of using an external HD digital tuner. Not sure how old this set is but they have a hidden extended warranty period of between 1 and 3 months ONTOP of the current warranty for this issue. On the digital Tuner board there is an "F1" and an "F2" (very small fuses) on the circuit board. I don't recomend this but if you would solder across the fuse to complete the circuit you set will again pick up the digital signals but you wont have a fuse. If your hand and can solder a replacement fuse across the board that will fix the issue as well. I use a sat reciever box or you can use the cable box as an external tuner as well. This repair done by Sony will run around $600.00 for the newer digital tuner board.

How to use PIP show another channel in TV mode


Dear Ariesky

Your TV does not support this. Normally when SONY refers to PIP, they mean you can display another analogue ( CVBS - RGB ) or Digital ( HDMI ) input simultaneously. They do not mean you can dislay two normal RF channels together, this would require a second tuner, which this set does not have.

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 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 !
