Hello, my name is Shahid, I'll be happy to assist you,
Please allow me to ask you a few questions about your TV so that we can troubleshoot the issue.

- Can you please get the model number written on back of TV?
- How old is it and how long it have stopped showing channels through coaxial straight in it?

It is the akuraALEDVD160V MSD306, I bought it with a motorhome, it still has the plastic cover on the flat screen and looks new, not sure when the fault occurred

Thanks Michael for the reply.

If you have tried to tune channels by selecting DTV in channel scan menu and TV didn't get any channel that means tuner is defective where coaxial goes in TV that receives channel signals and sends to signal processor chip in TV, I'm sorry in that situation we need to replace entire main board of TV as tuner may not be available separately or can't be replaced because of tough soldering work on main circuit board.

I would recommend to keep external freeveiw box with TV for channels instead of investing money on its repair / main board replacement.

I trust my input will help you out. Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
