Customer Question

I have an LE26R8 which has previously worked from satellite. I have moved house and tried to retune to receive Freeview. It has scanned digital channels and seems to complete the scan but when I press OK button after inputting date and time data everything is lost. I have repeated the process several times but with same result.

Hello
Welcome
Thanks for the Question

You need to reset in the service menu back to factory default, you do that by first putting the set into standby OFF red light lit, then pressing on the remote control and within 5 seconds INFO>>MENU>>MUTE>>Power ON the set will come on in engineers service mode, now using the up and down and left to right arrows navigate to "reset" which will be option 12 or 13 activate and OK (the set will indicate its been reset by either a message or switching off on its own) s the set will shut down, wait 5 mins then switch the set back on again and try again

Retune channels again and let me know if thisworks or not please
