I have lost the picture on the TV and cannot seem to recover it having now changed the batteries in the remote

Technician's Assistant: What is the model of your TV?

Pioneer not sure what else plasma on the wall was in flat when I bought flat!

Technician's Assistant: What menu options can you access, if any?

It would not change channels from yesterday but I then tried the input buttons and it will go from 1 through 5!

Only lived her a couple of weeks so doing my best! No antenna that I can see. No satellite yet. DVD yes. Surround sound yes. And a sound receiver which also has its own remote
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 3 months ago

Please try this:
-unplug the POWER cords for the tv and all related equipment from the wall outlet.
-wait 3 full minutes then plug in the tv cords and turn everything On.

-test for normal operation.

REPLY back here and tell me what happens.

Still only showing the Input numbers and cannot access the tv channels
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 3 months ago

So I am confused you say you don't have antenna or satellite, how do you get your channels? Is there a cable tv service/box or....

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
It's what they call Freeview. I get the BBC channels and the ITV channels. You know I'm in the UK right?
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 3 months ago

Ok, so is there a separate Freeview Box that you control with a Freeview remote?

Is that box On right now? Did you reboot it when you rebooted the equipment?

How is the box connected to the tv - which INPUT? (requires you go to the back of the tv and look)

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
There is no Freeview box. Just the TV, the DVD player & the sound receiver.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
The TV is a plasma mounted on the wall so not possible to see the back of it.
TV Technician: Mike G., Technician replied 3 months ago

So you have to get the Freeview signal into the tv via something- either a Dish or antenna. Do you know which?
