Hi

Maggie firstly sorry for delay I had work commitments

OK what you need to do is get the set back to factory default, so you go into the menu >>>settings and on page 2 of the settings menu their is an option for "shipping condition"access this and OK it the set may reboot then try again with the tuning

Let me know if you have any problems

I am sending a rating bar please only rate if problem resolved or we reach a conclusion if not please press the "reply to expert" tab without rating and I will continue to help you

Many Thanks

Hi

No thats not true you would be getting stations only some or more will drop out depending on how bad the reception is.

You need to try another set in the same position with the same aerial input let me know if you get all the channels then

had my daughter bring her telly round at the weekend. we replaced a cable and retuned and all channels came up. BUT still bad signal and cannot view. I think I'm getting to the point of no return and will have to call in an ariel repair man as last night even BBC went to bad signal and vanished!

my daughters reception was ok. I don't know what is going on as I have just tried my telly again tonight and BBC is ok again?! Can it be the telelevision itself?

Expert:  info tech replied 2 years ago.
Hi Maggie

Maggie the aerial is OK if your daughters set was OK

Yes the tuner in the set itself could be intermittent, if you set the set back to factory default then it can only be a bad tuner in the set, that means the mainboard with the tuner on it will need to be replaced

Maggie if you\someone you know wants to do that I will provide all the relevant info

Otherwise an engineer will charge around £80 to do it if your brought the set into a repair place

Let me know if you need more info
