EPG not working

I have a sony LCD Digital Colour TV model Bravia KDL-26S3000 coupled to a Sony DVD Recorder Model HXD870 The units were bought new 2 years ago approx

Suddenly the EPG has stopped working. I have gone through the set up proceedures and all seems well with the EPG but then again it fails and I get message 'this function cannot be used now' Manually I can still record. Can any one help please gel

it may be remote button track under inside the remote, I have had problems like this, you can buy Silver Paint from maplins to repair a track like that or a printed circuit board

its cheaper than buying a new control. you need to take out any screws you can see there may be one under a sticker and pry the control apart

Thanks Fruit Bat /\0/\

I understand that there have been some recent changes the other Guide was 'Watching TV using the Guide Plus + System' which was used for analogue This is no longer available and now seems associated with the Radio Times

I think my problem may be to do with digital change over and is caused by a Regional Transmission fault

It may correct itself but I was wondering if others had experienced the same problem

Thank you also wood chip

As I said the Remote as worn out, you can repair it the way I said above. all the button does is shorts contacts out on the board under it but the contacts ware out, that's where you need the silver paint to repair the tracks
