What the 'f' have I done? TV / SKY

rachsta, Dec 9, 5:28am
This blonde had finished watching a blu-ray movie, and then tried to watch Sky. This didn't work immediately, and a second later Sky is up, but with no picture and just audio. I may have pressed something on the remote that chose the 'stereo' option for the screen. No plugs or fancy buttons on the tv were pressed, and it all happened in less than 10 seconds. It's a day later and it's still effed. I need to fix it to get back into the good books and fast. Can you help me!

Now Video 2 / Component isn't working either. I may be in the dog box for some time now.

Might help if you said what make and model the tv was!

Regret that my crystal ball technician (Glinda, aka the good witch) is on a sabbatical at present and hasn't undertaken the routine maintenance required so my view of your setup is somewhat occluded.

Switch it all off, switch it all on again!

Well obviously you can all read my mind, hence the post. It's big, rather square and a Sony. Me and technology never had a steady relationship.Switching it all off and on, and again 100 times has made faces redder, and words unsavoury.

I'm thinking it's a 32" LCD Sony Bravia.

Should also note that it changes Sky channels with the remote, but the yellow channel numbers in the right hand corner aren't appearing either.

Only Sky decoders change Sky channels. The TV can only change the channels from its inbuilt tuners, be it analog PAL or DVB-T.

Tried changing the source on your tv remote! Sounds likeyou're getting uhf sky through your tv or dvd player which is sound only and no pic. Like spyware says you can only get sky through a sky box.
