‘Do NOT retune your TV!’ Plea from electrical experts inundated by calls from worried viewers
Electrical specialists in North Yorkshire have made an urgent plea this afternoon: ‘Do not adjust your set!’
Gavin Read of TVC Electrical in Malton contacted YorkMix after being inundated with calls from panicking viewers.
They have lost channels as a result of the Bilsdale Transmitter being switched off after it caught fire.
Gavin said they had fielded ‘hundreds of calls’ from viewers wanting advice on how to get their picture back.
“Do not retune your TVs,” he urged. “If you do, when they turn the transmitter on again, you’ll have no picture.
“Just use catch-up services for now, until this is sorted.”
