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.
