TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.
Can you tell me what inputs you are trying to use on hdmi1/2? Can you see the panasonic on screen setup menus?
So the nowtv box is working?Do you have a freeview box connected also?
Okay if you are using freeview integrated tuner, that is not hdmi then, it would be TV tuner mode.
Typically this issue means that the internal tuner card has failed, which is not at all surprising to see on a tv of this age.
Go into the panasonic setup menu under channels and run the Auto Scan (auto program) function to retune the freeview tuner.
If that still does not work, then the internal tuner is defective.
That would require repairs which would exceed the cost of a new tv. So at that point your best options are to either buy a new tv, or to connect up an external tuner box (set top box) for freeview instead: http://amzn.to/1Of6K9N
