TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hi, I'm Nathan.Sorry to hear that you're having trouble with this but I'll do my best to help you.
Are you not seeing a UK option to select in the first place? Or it is there but grayed out and you can't highlight it?
To start, go into the tv setup menu, under support/diagnostics, and then to Reset (factory reset), using pin 0000.
After that it will restart and prompt you through the initial setup step again. If it still wont' let you choose UK, then this model is simply not capable of this and will not be compatible with the local uk broadcasts. In that case you would either have to replace the tv, or purchase an external set top box instead, like this: https://amzn.to/3c0S2RU
Thank you for checking,
as I expected, you won't be able to change it then, it is region restricted based on the area for which it was manufactured and sold, so you'll need to purchase one of the external boxes like I mentioned, or replace the tv with a new one.
You're very welcome and have a nice day!
