First ensure that the TV input is set on the Freeview channels, just in case.

Then check the antenna, when Freeview does not get all channels, it is always the aerial (antenna).

Many areas in UK have still poor reception. If you use an internal antenna, go to Argos or Currys and buy an amplified antenna for freeview, that will improve the signal.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both. In your case, most likely the power section.
If this is the case, then absolutely it's worth repairing !
Any caps in these (or any) sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for 5 mins, then try.

If you aren't tech savvy, this unit needs to go in for repair.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Since the details of your problem description is sparse, I presume you are trying to load a DVD - not a CD - to watch on your TV. If in fact you ARE trying to watch a CD on your TV - won't work! A CD can be viewed on your computer, but not the TV. They are not interchangeable.

If however you are trying to load a DVD, the disk may me dirty or damaged. Check that the back of the DVD is free from finger prints, marks, or deep scratches. If it is, you may be having some issues with your DVD player. I sometimes have a similar problem that can be resolved only by opening and closing the drawer of the player several times.

The switch is damaged internally, will need replacing with a new one so some soldering is required, they are normally 250V between 2 -10A Rating.

You may lose some channels when you retune the TV as the channels have been rearranged. To locate them look at the EPG although you may still find that some channels are no longer available on FREEVIEW. See the following link for additional information

http://www.freeview.co.uk/_retuneinfo/

If the above process does not work then check the link above for additional information and also visit the accompanying site links below to find more information for your model of TV / FREEVIEW box.
