When to retune your TV

You may need to retune your TV for a number of reasons. If you are experiencing poor signal, missing channels, or your television is broadcasting the wrong regional news channel, these could all be signs that your TV needs a retune.

Updates are constantly being made to Freeview to improve its service, which could be another reason to retune your TV.

What to do if your Toshiba TV is still not working

If you’ve run through the automatic retuning above and your Toshiba TV still isn’t working, then the next step is to try a manual retune.

The first thing you will need to do is head over to the official Freeview website. Once you get there, enter your postcode, and you will be given a list of channels (frequencies) in your area. Make a note of these details, as you will need them in the steps below: 

  1. Press Menu on your remote control
  2. Select the Manual Tuning option on your menu screen
  3. Then enter the 4-digit code on the prompt. You can find this in your TV handbook; otherwise, try default codes ‘0000’ or ‘1234.
  4. Now, you will need to enter the channel frequencies from the information you found on the official Freeview website.
  5. Save and exit

Hopefully, after retuning your Toshiba TV, you now have a full list of channels. If you’re still having issues, we recommend contacting Toshiba support here.
