UKTV History now finishes at 18:00, when it is replaced by a new 'cheap-tacky-repeats' channel called 'DAVE'.  Worst thing Free-view has ever done in my mind.

SOURCE: Insignia 42 inch TV won't turn on

The power supply is in the protect mode. There are many things in the set that can cuase this. Most likely there is a short on one of the circuit boards, or the power supply itself has failed.

You will have to have the set serviced in order to get it going again.

SOURCE: TV not finding Digital Channels from Cable Box

We have Comcast and we plugged the cable straight into our Bravia, searched for Digital Channels and it found 131. We actually get all the HD channels that we had using the box, plus a few more. It's worth a try.

I repaired my Acer by replacing the power supply from
http://www.power-on.com/lcd323-4m.html - $85

Acer would not sell me a replacement power supply.

Note: I needed to solder wires the new power supply to the old one,
the pinouts on the connectors on the new one would not fit the original.

SOURCE: Olevia 42"

Olevia LCD 542I - Had the same issue for a week until the tv would not turn on anymore, after several attempts it came back on. A few days later the tv turned off then only the standby light was on, then lost the standby light as well. After researching the problem it could be in two areas, either the power supply or main board. Removed the back and found the power supply had several capacitors that were bulging on the top and appeared the fluid was leaking, all signs of a failed part, removed the PS and replaced four capacitorst that had shown some issues. If you can removed the PS and check for a number on the board, mine was FSP271-4F02, and find someone who has some electronic circuit capablilty, the issue may be resolved at a fraction on the cost of a new power supply.

How do you tune TV


A full retune should only takes a few minutes and can be done with your remote control. Here are some guidelines for how to do it, but bear in mind every model of digital TV or box will be a little bit different.
  • Make sure your Freeview TV or box is on and in digital mode, usually by pressing the DTV or digital button on your remote. Then press 'menu'.
  • Select the 'set up' or 'installation' option. If you see picture icons, select the tool box, satellite dish or spanner. If you are prompted for a code, try 0000 or 1234.
  • Select the full retune option. This is sometimes called 'first time installation', 'factory reset', 'default settings' or 'shipping conditions'. Do not select 'channel update' or 'add channels'.
  • Press 'OK' if your equipment asks if you want to delete all your channels. Don't worry this is normal
  • Channels will automatically be installed. This may take a few minutes and your equipment may shut down and restart
  • In some cases, where transmitter signals overlap, it may be necessary to carry out a manual retune.
Note: Depending on your TV equipment, you may need to update your favourites list following a retune. Some digital recorders may require scheduled recordings to be reset.

local channels are usually below a channel 1000. they are always on same assigned channel. If your cable box or tv has it, it has option to not display channels with no service on them. you can't reassign the channel numbers. they are channels but not being displayed.

How to retrieve lost channels on digital tv


To restore missing channels, you need to retune your digital receiver (box or TV).

The retuning process runs a scan and finds all the available channels. Your box may have an Add New Channels option that you can use, but this may not pick up other changes such as channels being moved to a different multiplex or removed altogether.
How to retune
  1. Switch on your digital box and/or TV.
  2. Press Menu on the remote control.
  3. Select the Setup or Installation option.
  4. Select the 'First time installation' option (sometimes called 'Factory reset', 'Full retune' or 'Default settings').
  5. Press OK if your equipment asks if you want to delete all your channels. Don't worry, this is normal.
  6. If you are prompted for a code, try 0000 or 1234.
  7. Channels will be automatically installed. This may take a few minutes and your equipment may shut down and restart.
  8. After retuning, you will have to redo your Favourites list and other settings. If you retune a digital TV recorder, you also should reset future recordings.

Cable in my area has switched to digital cable. I own a Hitachi HDTV about four years old. When I scan my channels it will only scan analog channels...the digital channels are an option but I don't...


Unfortunately, you need a set-top box. The Hitachi 65F59 has an ATSC (digital OTA) and NTSC (analog) tuner. It doesn't have a clear-QAM (unencrypted digital cable) tuner.

There are a few DVR set-top boxes with QAM tuners that you can buy separately. (You will need to make sure a given model is compatible with your service. FIOS uses a different option on the Cable Card than other providers.) Alternatively, you can get a cable box from your company.

Retrevo has the manual for this Hitachi TV here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-65F59-TVs-manual/id/371ci977/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the PDF.

If you want OTA HD, you will need to determine the correct antenna for your area and the direction to the transmitters. (External antennas pick up more stations. In some areas amplification may be needed to get a good signal.) See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for searches on the appropriate antenna to get a signal and where to point the antenna. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the received channel list. You would need to set the TV signal input to Air and rescan for channels if you choose to go with the OTA signal.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have a Tevion TDR 5101 DVD recorder which I have had for a few years. I have never managed to get it to work and since I bought it our region has gone over to digital. I have no reason to think anything...


Sadly , it will never work as a digital recorder . they did not make a convertor box for them as they did for televisions when the world had to convert to all digital .

Since they switched to digital TV, my VCR/DVD player will not record a TV program.


The DR-MV150B has both a digital tuner and analog tuner. Since the digital conversion you more likely have not run a channel scan for the new digital channels. Plugging in a digital tuner would work, but is unnecessary. What you probably have to do is run the 'auto scan' feature through the recorders menu. Hit "Home" button go to the "TV" icon and select "Auto Scan". It will take a few minutes, but recorder will scan for digital channels and memorize them.

Troble tuning in


If your recorder is hooked up after the cable box, then it can probably only receive channel 3...the set-top box does the switching, and sends everything to the TV (and recorder) on Ch. 3
