What can be done in this situation?
Sony’s new flat-panel TV is no longer shown at the dacha, it is written that there is no signal. An old TV on the same antenna shows well. I decided to return to the factory settings, but it does not work, since I need to enter the parental control pin code, after which the TV stopped responding altogether, not a single command passes, it requires the parental control pin code again

No signal

If no channel is showing, you need to take the following steps:

  • Check antenna connection. The plug may have fallen out of the socket.
  • Make sure the integrity of the antenna cable visually and, if possible, by “ringing” it with a multimeter.
  • Check antenna orientation. Digital TV broadcasts in the decimeter range, and UHF antennas, as a rule, are sensitive to the direction to the signal source, so they must be installed with an orientation clearly to it. The exact bearing to the nearest repeater can be found on the CETV interactive map.

If none of these steps gave a result, you need to seek help from the masters. This is most likely a malfunction of the TV.

How to determine your TV model

Over the years, Sony has produced a huge number of TVs of different models. Not all of them support digital reproduction, and among those that can do this, not all work with the European broadcasting standard DVB-T2. And first you need to define the model.
