A solid line down or across the screen is due to problems in the display itself. Unfortunately, there's no way to repair it because the bad circuitry is integrated into the display. The only cure is display replacement.

Not the solution you want, but that's how it is. (With the huge number of transistors that are part of the display, it's actually amazing there are as few failures as there are.)

SOURCE: Problem retuning Sagem PVR6240T set top box

Apparently you can get your software updated by sending your Sagem PVR 62** to their offices in Chertsey, Surrey. I am about to do that. This is as a result of getting an answer from Sagem as follows:-

"Following the impact of the national retune on Wednesday 31/09/2009, Sagem have decided to offer an additional software update for their old PVR62xx range in the UK. However, since Sagem have to cover the costs for the implementation of an unscheduled update, customers will be charged £23 for their update which will be performed in our head office in Chertsey / Surrey. Please complete this form and return it to _service.uk@sagemcom.com"

Hope this helps.

I am afraid it sounds as though either your backlight or power inverter has gone faulty, may be worth contacting alba to see if they will honour the warrenty (unlikely but worth a go) otherwise maybe try your home insurance to see if its covered, failing either of these options, if you feel confident doing so, disassemble the tv and look for any signs of visible damage (capacitors leaking or any components looking burned or scorche, and replace. Try looking for any panel markings which will allow you to search for a price to replace the whole unit.
Unfortunately I cant give you and hard and fast cure, and it is very difficult to tell whether it is the inverter or the backlight has gone (having said that, if you are getting picture at the very beginning, it may suggest that the inverter is getting the power to the backlight ok, which may suggest its the backlight at fault.)
Hope this helps.

MY ALBA TV SAYS NO SIGNAL EACH TIME i PLUG IT IN


Either the TV has lost its memory and just needs retuning; or your coax and/or aerial is stuffed.

We cannot record from tv on any other programme than BBC1 - tried to tune it in but nothing seemss to work. Changed aerials around but sstill it won't tune in. Only got 4 programmes as we are not digital...


Unless you are on freeview through a Freeview digital box and using an aerial OR a satalite digital box fed by a satalite dish there is no way you can receive programs.
Thanks to BBC we no longer can get a decent connection unless we have a freesat box and new satalite dishes with more than one output cable. All this costs money and not a good service. I dare say they think we are all on their type of inflated salaries paid for by the tax payer. In short what ever you do it will entail the purchase of all new equipment.

Picture and sound break up on ITV3.


You'll need to tell us what TV, set top box you have for us to help. In the meantime, check your aerial connections to make sure they are secure and try a retune after that. Often, doing a retune without the aerial connected, then a full retune with it connected does the trick; this 'flushes' old channel settings in some equipment. In my area, ITV3 is a bit iffy and I cured my problem by checking all my coax connections up to and including booster and aerial.

The humax keeps on messaging that the antane cable is short circuited. is this an internal problem or a problem with the aerial itsefl


The Humax PVR-150T will definitely have problems using an indoor set top aerial; this is true of almost all Freeview receivers. Freeview signals are typically hundreds of times weaker than terrestrial transmissions and if you've managed with a set top aerial so far it's been working more by luck than design. I find that most set top aerials are so badly made that they're often faulty when new, but as most tend to flogged cheaply at markets and car boot sales the supply chain has no incentive to improve the product.

There has recently been a national Freeview retune, to complete this correctly your box needs the kind of solid and reliable signal which you cannot get with a set top aerial. Some receivers had compatibility issues with the retune and in many cases manufacturers broadcast OAD's (Over Air Downloads) to update the firmware in the boxes to be compatible. OAD's almost never successfully install via set top aerials.

There is an official list of Freeview devices which are known to have problems with the retune; unfortunately it has not proven to be a comprehensive list. The Humax MG-TU1 is one of those which have had problems and from memory it's closely related to your Humax PVR. The official advice is that you contact Humax directly on 0870 247 8800, but they'll probably instruct you to test your box using the aerial system it's designed to use before they'll be interested in offering further assistance.

I have no bbc1 or other main channels after re-tune on my TX-32LXD1


Try looking at the EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) and selecting one of the missing channels if it is showing on screen. If you can receive the broadcast then it means that your channel list has been rearranged into a different order and you will have to manually edit the list to get the programmes in the order that you need. If the channels are not there then try retuning again.

You may need a better aerial. Digital TV signals need good signals or you can't pick up the full range of channels. Broadcasters and others are tending to keep their mouths shut about the expense of needing much better things on the roof than what many people use to get away with on analog signals. Even if you have a good aerial, If you have the 'brown' coax cable connected to it you could lose signal and stations. So it's best to replace it with Satellite coax cable FT100. That should stop a lot of blocking caused by interfearance by cars or those off road bikes youths ride around on.
