SOURCE: Tv tries to power up and then shuts off, again and again.

If the fuse were to be open then you would have no lights coming on at all. These days it is very unusual to have an open fuse. You will have to have a technician look at the TV.

SOURCE: Not receiving channel 5. Cannot re-tune TV.

You can only access auto tuning by going through the digital menu via information button on remote. Pressing the menu button only brings up analogue set up.

SOURCE: SCreen goes blank intermittendtly

It is OK that there is enough space where your PS3 is located but what is required is ventilation to take out the heat which may be the case in this case. Therefore try to put PS3 in a place where the place gets enough ventilation. There is no other reason for screen going blank intermittently Also, it is suggested that you clean the terminals of the cables periodically by disconnecting them as the heat attracts dust and the contacts become dirty with dust thus affecting the connections

There is the digital tuner (DTV) and the analogue tuner (TV). Make sure you are tuning the digital side as there are no longer any analogue TV broadcasts in the UK.

My DTV stopped working giving a blank screen


It may just need to be Re-tuned.

What I would suggest you do is make sure that you are on a DTV channel on your Tv. then with your Pioneer remote press the menu button and then set it away on a Auto tune.
You must have it on a DTV channel first before try to tune as if you mistakenly have it on TV (terrestrail channel) It will only Auto tune that and not your freeview.

Hope you get it sorted.

Hi,
It seems just channel stored data issue.
Please perform Auto Preset / Auto Channel / Auto Tuning (mentioned menu items) and store all channels again.
Hope problem will resolve.
