Does it matter how you connect aerial cables to a Belkin HT surge protector?

Hi,

Have just purchased a Belkin surge protector board for my new LCD TV and HT. It also protects the aerial, and includes 'in' and 'out' sockets for the aerial cabling. The board also came with an extra aerial cord (which I'm assuming is to help connect from the board to the TV).

I have connected my original aerial cable from the wall to the 'in' socket of the Belkin board, and have run the extra aerial cord from the 'out' socket to the TV's aerial input socket. Is this correct?

The reason I'm asking is because it occured to me that some might interpret the meaning of 'in' and 'out' differently! For example, 'out' could mean out to the antenna, rather than 'out' of the board as I've interpreted it.

Do I have my cabling right?

Many thanks!
Rob :)

SOURCE: No Signal After Reconnecting Roady2

Try playing the Roady 2 through a fm radio with the audio jack(middle connection) disconnected and the FM Frequency & Fm Radio set to the same station. At least this will tell if the receiver is working. I suspect that you got an aftermarket audiojack for your stereo. Might want to check that. Go back to the manual FM Modulation setup instructions. Any FM receiver will work. Good Luck

SOURCE: cable in connection

Hi,

Most TV models/cable providers uses the F type of coaxial connector as shown below. 7c21c7e.jpg
However, some versions intended for other regions (Europe & Middle East) uses the PAL type of connector likewise shown below.
be2f30d.jpg
If your model uses the latter and your cable provider uses the F type, what you need is a straight F type Female to PAL Male adapter. Or it could even be just the other way around.

They are available in most electronic parts/supply store or online. You can try here, here or here.

Hope that this be of idea/help. Pls post back how things turned up, r should you need additional information and/or if your cable connectors are of different types. A photo of the connectors would be nice.

Good luck and kind regards.

Hello,
When your loader is open click on Serial Set, change to either one of the four "COM" I didn't realize that all have different "com" settings, I have to be on com 2, to download. I'm not sure if you are aware, but the receiver has to be unplugged then download the file and re-plug in your receiver. A download box should appear, then a large warning sign, then another message will appear that the download is ok, wait about 3-4 minutes before clicking ok.
I hope this help, good luck.

Provided that your soldering skills are sufficient, you should be ok. Just be sure to observe the polarity (don't switch the wires around) and use an adequate sized wire.

When and How Should a Surge Protector Be Used on a Fixed Switch?


Common Causes of Lightning Strikes
  • Outdoor network cables or power cables are routed overhead.
  • A switch is deployed outdoors but is not properly grounded.

Damages of Lightning Strikes
  • If power cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn the power supplies.
  • If network cables of a switch are routed overhead in an outdoor environment, lightning strikes may burn interfaces of the switch.
When a switch undergoes lightning strikes, overvoltage is induced by lightning on network cables and transmitted to interior of the chassis. The surge protection measures, such as lightning rod and chassis grounding cannot prevent the damage. Therefore, surge protectors or surge protection circuits are recommended.

Surge Protector Use Precautions Take the following precautions to protect a switch from lightning:
  • Ensure that the ground cable is connected to a ground bar or a ground point on the cabinet.
  • Avoid routing cables overhead in an outdoor environment. Bury cables underground or route them in steel tubes.
  • To protect network interfaces against lightning, use 8-line surge protectors (or Huawei certified 4-line surge protectors).
  • When installing a network interface surge protector, connect the IN end to terminals and the OUT end to network interfaces of the switch.
If a fixed switch is installed in a network box, follow these instructions:
  • Connect the ground cables of the switch and surge protectors to the ground bar in the network box.
  • The maximum length of a ground cable cannot exceed 40 cm, and a length of smaller than 15 cm is recommended.
  • If the network box is located outdoors and power cables are routed aerially over a long distance (more than 300 m) to the network box, it is recommended that you install a power supply surge protector in the network box. The decoupled power cable must be at least 3 m long

My ill dads Vizio VO320E showed classic symptoms of lightening damage so we purchased a new main board. Now the screen lights up but is showing pink and yellow horizontal stripes and some vertical sha


Mr. John either one of two things from start u have done right this is a common thing on flat sets hooked to Direct boxes by HDMI having surges come from box to set. The main board usually needs replacing, so either u received a bad board or u have multiple issues and possibly the T-CON board got surged from main board. This board is located above main and power in center at very top of screen. This will cause symptom that u are describing. Hope this helps.

Why did cable box hdmi connection blow out my tv in power outage??


Yes it can happen. Though you can't prevent this 100% you can reduce the chance by getting a surge protector with coaxial protection as well. Lots of times the surge comes through the coax.Here is and example. http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-8-Outlet-Protector-Coaxial-Protection/dp/B000IF9QW0

This surge protector takes the power cables of the TV and DVD player. In addition, it will take the coax cable in and has a coax cable out for surge protection on your cable provider's incoming cable.

Sounds like a power supply or power outlet problem.
If it's still under warrant, return the unit for repair and get it fixed.
After you get it back do not connect it directly to a power outlet.
You would like to purchase a good surge protector and connect you PC to the surge protector first.
You might have a noisy power lines, and or spikes and surges.
The surge protector will secure your PC Power Supply.
You can purchase one from Amazon.com:

Lightning definitely sounds like the issue.We had our computer plugged into a surge protector last year but our computer got fried.We purchased a Belkin surge protector which is much better.The smallest one they sell I believe is 6 outlets for $50 BUT they back that with a $50,000 guarantee.If something fails due to their product,they will reimburse you for up to $50K,and I already called just in case,you do not need receipts.They make up to 12 outlets and that has a $300K guarantee.We live in the lightning capital of the country,Tampa area,and so far no problems.Also,it's not really good to hold down the button to force it to come on because the clicking probably means it's trying to save itself,but at this point it doesn't much matter.The TV will need to be looked at.I wish I could help more but the TV makers won't let me as a consumer,find any parts prices or diagrams.Sorry , but good luck!

Check the main fuse in the power supply, the TV also has small surge protection devices (MOVs) installed after the fuse, any surges the come along and big enough will cause the main AC fuse to blow. When you surge protector, EVERY connections must go through the surge protector, for example, the AC cord of the TV is connected to the surge protector, the cable connection did not go through the surge protection, the surge then can get to the TV through the cables.

Sony Bravia LCD TV is tripping the fuse in the house


These things draw a huge surge current when turned on. What size fuse are you blowing? These things can surge 10-12 amps on turn-on. What about a fuse with a reset button. They will take alittle more surge before they go. Don't matter about the insignia working before because the cheaper sets tend to stay powered up more when off....thus not surging on from a dead start. Could you try a different plug on a different circuit/fuse? and see if that makes a difference. If you have a 15 amp fuse, then your pretty close with other stuff plugged in. What size is your service? Do you still have an original 60 amp box with screw in fuses? Is it an old house?
