Retuning when you have no signal is the last thing you should do. It usually just clears any correct tuning you had.
There are no reported Faults or Planned Engineering at Hagg Wood at this time.
See also my previous reply to your previous post just before this one.
Without the information, especially the full postcode, there is limited constructive advise that can be offered. Have you checked all the connections behind your TV? Also make sure you don't have any HDMI leads running close to your aerial or flyleads as HDMI can sometimes generate interference.
There could be temporary interference to signals due to current weather conditions. It's Tropospheric Ducting/Temperature Inversion which can often accompany high pressure but the conditions can be very variable, you can't correlate this with what you "see" of the weather or simple barometric pressure. Such conditions have been present over several recent weeks affecting different parts of the country at different times but they don't usually affect several multiplexes at once (it depends where the interference is coming from). There is some present now which could be affecting you.
As mentioned, retuning in these conditions/no signal can just clear the correct tuning and you the have to repeat tuning when signals are normal, as you don't know when that will be you may have to try several times. Also you may have got incorrectly tuned to another transmitters whose signals will disappear as conditions change.
Check in your TV Tuning section that you are correctly tuned to Hagg Wood's UHF channels which are C39, C42 & C45, manual tune to those channels if need be.

Further to my post of yesterday, I have now managed to recover the tv channels that are delivered through channel C39 and C45, but I am missing channel C42 altogether. Any further help would be appreciated. My postcode is HD9 7HR and my house number is 38 if that helps.

Have you tried a manual tune for UHF C42?
Please confirm which way your aerial is pointing as you should also be able to get very good signals for all multiplexes from Emley Moor.
Where is your aerial, on the roof or in the loft? I assume that if you are actually supposed to be getting your signal from Hagg Wood then the aerial rods (or squashed Xs) are vertical. Have you looked at the aerial?
Is it pointing almost due North with rods vertical, or compass bearing 65 degrees - almost ENE with rods horizontal, or less likely compass bearing 223 degrees - virtually SW with rods vertical?
