My computer tells me that the following programmes TV1,2,3,4, and 5 are not available (no signal) I am able to open my Sky Sports though!

Hi there and welcome

Exactly how are you accessing the programmes? Via your web browser? A special program you have installed?

Please let me know

Please help. I am 86 years old, deaf and confused. I have done nothing to my TV set it simply doesn't work. All BBC and Freeview tell me NO Channel!!!! yet Sky Sport is available. What on earth is going on?

Thank you

Can you please remove the power to the TV (so unplug it from the power socket).

Then on the actual TV, hold the power button for 60 seconds then release.

Then wait 10 minutes, connect the power again to the TV, turn it on and tell me please if it is now operating correctly.

Let me know the results please

I do not have a 'power' button on my TV. It is operated by a remote control. Thank you very much for trying to help me Richard. I have now been informed that I will receive a call from talktalk next Monday morning at my home,

ok no problem, though usually they hide the button, it is very rare you would not have one.

But If you have continued problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.

And please take a second to rate my service for now by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen then submit.

Thank you
