Hi Tom,

Were you watching digital, sky or virgin when the message came on.

Are you sure you haven't accidentally selected the wrong source eg moved to HDMI 2?

Secondly what is the model of your TV?



Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we were watching a digital programme
the set is a Toshiba 37B700B we have run through the source menu.
we got thr dvd channel on HDMI3

Can you confirm if other TV's in the house are still able to get signal, just to rule out an antenna issue?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
have checked aerial and other plugs, there are no other sets in the house

Ok, does your aerial go through an amp or is it a straight cable from the socket in the wall to the aerial on the roof?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The aerial goes straight up to the roof fro the socket in the TV

I would look to re-tune your TV, and see if the TV is then able to rediscover the channels.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
because screen is blue, I am unable to get the retune menu
