For this independent help-site to provide the best help, a full postcode is normally required to look at predicted reception at your location. However, the Faversham transmitter has recently been on Planned Engineering where you may have had Weak signal or Service interruptions.
You are always best advised NOT to retune when you have No Signal messages or pixellated pictures, are more often than not this just clears correct tuning and you have to retune when signals return to normal.
Some sets do automatic retunes which can be a real nuisance in circumstances where signals are lost, you are best advised to find the setting in your TV's tuning sections and turn it off. You should only need to retune when you see an on-screen message to do so. These days that should be a very rare event.
If you manually retuned when you lost signal, try retuning again.
