ATV46FLEM (46")

Had this TV for years from Aldi, 46" FULL HD LED LCD - Model No.ATV-46FLEM - why doesn't it show the HD Channels in Victoria, Australia? Can it? Is there an update I can download?

I asked Bauhn on Facebook and they didn't know why and had no answers. A FULL HD TV should receive HD channels shouldn't it. I have the correct roof mounted digital TV aerial.

The initial start up menu when first turning on only has English and Australia as programming settings. But....when you go into the menu settings
later to set time zone you can select South Australia or Victoria etc and then your tv will recognise what zone you're in to auto tune the channels. Good luck.

Sorry, no luck. All the correct settings including Victoria time zone; even went right through "first time" set-up, nothing. Cannot think of anything I have over looked. Bauhn should give me a free replacement because this TV does not receive FULL HD as advertised.

Why does my TV lately suddenly turn off while watching a programme? Sometimes it comes back on again in a few seconds but a lot of the time I can't get it back on without totally switching off on the wall and switching on again. I have even put new batteries in the remote. It has been a fantastic TV to date.

Generally this would be considered a fault with the power supply inside the TV. If it starts to get more frequent it needs a repair.

Thanks so much for that! Funnily enough, since I put that 'post' up it hasn't done it again! I'm sure it will though, has been doing it for a while.

My remote control is not working anymore and I'm trying to operate from the tv panel. But I couldn't manage to find any OK button. Can you please let me know how to select OK from the TV itself?

Bauhn ATV-46 FLEM. My tv has been turning itself off all of a sudden. Sometimes I have it on for 45 minutes and it shuts down or sometimes for hours on end and it does it. Anyone else have these problems???

I have a Bauhn ATV-46 FLEM also (46" LCD TV with LED backlight). Some months back it started losing the picture - just a black screen but sound OK. Turn it off for 2 minutes, back on - worked perfectly - then 10 minutes later .. black screen. We got used to this staccato viewing. Finally it went black and stayed black. Today I took the back off and went over the circuit boards - and found one board (yellow color - top left corner when TV approached from behind (labelled HTX-P1420402A) - with a transformer (BYQ037) having a faint scorch mark above it. Removed some screws to view the underside of the PCB. The top edge of the transformer has 9 leads coming from it. Leads 4 & 5 coincided with the scorch mark on the other face of the board. The solder joints to the pads on the board looked somewhat suspect. They had been heated and cooled, many times and finally become dry joints. Hence the off, cool, OK again, cycle as they expanded and contracted. I resoldered them in situ with plenty of solder. Reassembled. Turned it on again - and Presto! We have a working TV again. The heat sink which should keep things cool is obviously too meagre - and the root cause of the problem. (If it happens again - I will try fitting a small CPU-fan to provide extra cooling.) The re-solder is an easy fix - and costs nothing. Make sure you have it powered down and unplugged before fiddling!

Do you maybe have the sleep mode activated?

rde's solution was spot on for me. Thanks mate, that saved quite a few dollars either having it repaired or buying another TV. Our unit lasted until February 2018 (bought in (October 2012) without any issues before the identical problem surfaced. With the re-solder fix it's now all good again.
