    I have a Sony Wega 32" widescreen TV with an integrated digital tuner and have a strange problem with it. I can be watching a channel (normally seems to BBC) and all of a sudden the picture will go off, accompanied by two fairly loud beeps. You then have to turn the TV over to another channel and then back again to get it back on.

    Does anyone know why this happens?

    Thanks

    I'm not too sure but it sounds like your t.v. has a definate problem the best thing to do is to call sony and get an engy. sent out. Unless anyone one here knows how to fix it.
    Sounds like a fault though.
    Hope it helps

    I was going to say that if this only happened when watching digital then it might be your signal strength dipping or problems with your coax cables or something like that.

    But the two beeps are of concern .... have you checked at the back of manual to see if these are error codes that have an attached meaning?

    Thanx for the replies. I suspected it could be a fault with the TV, but I can only remember it happenning on BBC (not ITV or Sky) so the you could be onto something with the signal strength. I shall have a look in the manual tonight to see if I can find out what the beeps mean.

    Thanks again.
