Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I tried setting it back to shipping condition, I bought the tv in australia

Expert:  Shahid replied 2 years ago.
ah OK, I'm afraid this TV is domestic model of Australia and its internal software (firmware) doesn't work or other countries and made only , sorry news.
There is an alternate way to get it working in UK, connect a set top box to video input of TV, plug the aerial in set top box and use the box remote to tune the available channels in area to watch on TV. Various brands of set top box would be available in nearest electronics stores.
This way you will not need to do any thing with the TV and set top box tuner will do the job instead of built in tuner of TV to get local channels. I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
