HI Allan,
Thank you for using Just Answer my name is ***** ***** I will help with your question.
I think your tv have got switched onto the old analogue system of the tv and is not on the correct input.
If you could press the button to the right hand side of the P up and down buttons (it should be marked source). This will change the input the tv and hopefully you will be able to select the correct input.

Yes I think you are right. I am on the old system but when I press the source button nothing happens. If I press source on the tv itself I get a choice of AV1 Stereo but when I press a channel I go back to mono and the same snowy picture as before. I have changed the batteries in the remote.

Thanks Allan Kelly

Do you have a dvd player connected to it if you do how is it connected?

When did the tv stop working? I thought all of the uk had now switched over to digital and no analogue was being broadcast. Please could you send me you postcode and I will confirm what signal is transmitted near you.

The most likely tv transmitter to you is Crystal Palace and the analogue signal was turned off in april 2012. I am afraid you will need a freeview box to receive tv on the television.
The next closet is Alexandra Palace and the analogue signal was turned off in April 2012.
