SONY BRAVIA -KDF-E50A12U- SENTANTA FREEVIEW TUNING PROBLEMS.

I have a Sony Bravia built in FREEVIEW model LCD rear project TV.

Having purchased a freeview box with free Sentanta card I later discover through the Sentanta homepage that some LCD TVs could use a IDTV CARD ADAPTOR OR CAM.On checking the back of the TV ,I discovered I could utilise one of these Cams so purchased one.
Whilst following the setting up proceedures I found out that my Sentanta channel (34) was displaying :- SELECTED PROGRAMME IS NOT TUNED IN.
Previously Sentanta was displayed with a homepage & some free programmes have been watched in the past.

Yesterday I did as instructed & carried out a digital retune. 89 channels were produced with good picture quality & every radio station via digital.
Even with the CAM & CARD are not in the slot the TV auto tunning successfully but still comes back with Sentanta (34) PROGRAMME IS NOT TUNED IN.
Early this evening I have retuned with the card & cam in the slot ,& without , but I am still getting the same results.
On trying the Freeview box into the TV via normal leads & scarts the TV displays Sentanta fine.I believe this prove that my outdoor ariel is satisfactory & working ok.
Today I was told to try Menu-Settings-Setup- CA MODULE SETUP.
This was carried out but the software downloads keep coming back as failing .
PLEASE has any one got the solution to my problem.
IE.Every channel is displayed & working but not the Setanta homepage you get on Freeview.

PS. Emley Moor can be seen from every direction!!

THANKS,

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.

For troubleshooting the retune procedure visit http://tvretune.co.uk/troubleshooting/

Sony bravia KDF-E50A12U rear projecion tv wont turn on


Hi it sounds like it could be an issue with board that powers the lamp ,it's called the ballast.When you put a new lamp in the ballast has to provide more power ,when it starts to go weak it will not light up.Sometimes you can put your old lamp in and will work fine.Try partstore.com they might have it right there.Hvae a blessed one!

If you are looking for an owner's manual, you can download it from the Sony website for free. The service and training manuals that show the circuit diagrams and exploded views, you would usually need to purchase. Sony has them or other 3rd party companies carry them too but usually charge you around $20-30.

You can't make SD look like HD thats why HD came out, the best you can do is adjust the picture controls to get the optium picture
