The TV set is completely dead with no power at all why is this?

This is generally caused by a power supply failure, try restarting the TV or contact our service centre for further assistance

The TV set won’t power on and the power light is flashing?

This usually means the self-diagnostic system has detected a problem and the unit may need to be serviced. In some cases unplugging the power supply from the unit and waiting for a few minutes before re-plugging the unit in again may correct the problem.

A particular input is not working on my TV

In some cases where an input refuses to operate, it may just be a faulty input port. Unplugging power from both the signal source and TV or projector could possibly correct the problem

The TV set won’t tune in digital channels

In cases when a particular TV won’t receive the Digital Channels we have found that the TV set was manufactured before Digital tuners were required and does not have the capability to receive them.

Other reasons may be is that the tuner system has been set to “analogue” mode which could result in no channels found when a channel scan is performed.

Make sure the tuner setting is set to “DVBT” mode then scan channels again.

If it is an older TV without a digital tuner an external convertor box is required to receive digital channels.
