In England it is about a quarter inch thick and is rated at 75 ohms (the thickness can vary slightly depending on the quality of the cable)

My Polaroid HDTV says no signal. What is going on.


  • Have you plugged in the arial?
  • Is it in the right socket?
  • Are you using an aerial cable extender/splitter?
  • Are you using a portable indoor aerial?
  • Does it have built in Freeview?
  • Have you plugged in an external Freeview box if necessary?
  • Have you scanned for channels through the Freeview box?
  • Are you in an area where the analogue signal has been turned off?
  • Have you subscribed to a cable or satellite provider?
  • Are you on the right TV source?
  1. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in.
  2. check the back of the tv to see if the aerial is plugged in correctly.
  3. If you are using an aerial cable extender or splitter, make sure all parts are connected all the way up to the aerial.
  4. If you're using a portable indoor aerial you might not be able to get enough signal to produce a picture. Also the aerial might need to be switched on, plugged in or need batteries.
  5. If the TV has Freeview built-in then you will need to scan for channels before you will get a picture. refur to you're TV's manual.
  6. Make sure, if you have got an external Freeview box that it is plugged in and switched on at the wall. Also make sure that it is connected to the TV either by a scart lead or by HDMI cable.
  7. Typically there will be a button on the remote called menu. From the menu screen choose setup. Then choose auto scan. Follow any on-screen instructions. Always refur to the TV's manual to avoid confusion and frustration.
  8. If you are in an area where they have switched off the analogue signal you will need to buy a Freeview box or subscribe to a cable or satellite provider. Freeview is cheep and is a one off payment ( best for people who will only really watch channels 1-5)
  9. Ring up your providers tech support.
  10. To change what input you are viewing, there will normally be a button called source on the remote. If you have connected a Freeview or cable/satalite box to the tv with a scart lead then select scart. If you used a HDMI lead then select HDMI. (There may be more than one of theses sockets so check behind the TV first. They usually have names or numbers by the side) refur to you're TV manual for help.
That is every problem i can think of. If it still doesnt work, take it back to the shop.
Hope this helps.

My tv auomatic off after 1 mi


1]...Please check that the sleep timer function is not set;

2]...Some tv's have a count-down timer & switch off if there is no signal input, either from the tv aerial, or av input;

Please check that the aerial is plugged in to the correct socket on the rear of the tv; test the aerial in another tv, to make sure it is working ok.

3]...It could be a problem with the remote/teletext panel?

for example, switching unexpectedly to standby, or changing channels unexpectedly?

4]...It could be a power supply fault;

for example, switched mode power supplies (SMPS) can cause problems; this could also cause the set to switch to standby mode.

PLEASE NOTE:

If the unit still switches off after 1 minute, even after checking the tv aerial is functioning properly, & is connected to the tv unit aerial socket ok, & the source is set to the tv aerial, then this could be indicative of an internal fault.

TV sets contain extremely high & very dangerous voltages, even after the tv has been unplugged from the ac power socket, on the wall, which could kill you!

FOR THIS REASON, & FOR YOUR SAFETY PLEASE DO NOT attempt to open or repair the tv unit yourself, unless qualified to do so - please take it to the tv repair shop;
only qualified tv engineers should attempt to carry out tv repairs.

I hope this information was helpful for you.

Thanks,

Steve.

How do I retune DMTech TV Freeview with DVD video please?


Please fallow bellows instruction to retune your TV.
Could you please follow that EEPROM RESET INSTRUCTION OR FIRST TME INSTALLATION.
Also please don’t forget that MENU BUTTON from your remote, it’s not the one in the middle of remote.
There are the other MENU BUTTON in left down bottom side.
Cannot access Digital TV and am asked for a Lock code Key?
If you cannot access the Digital TV option then conduct an EEPROM RESET as mentioned above. If you are prompted to enter a lock code key enter three / four zeros.
Alternatively when prompted to enter the lock code key conduct a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION also mentioned above.
There are two options available. The first option is to conduct a general reset that will reset all user preferences. The second option would be to conduct an EEPROM RESET. An EEPROM RESET would reset all the internal hardware.

Instructions - Please refer to your DMTECH remote control and user manual provided
1. Turn the Television ON ? Button on front of Television / Power button on remote control.
2. Make sure that you are on Analogue television by pressing the TV/DVB-T button until you see PR and the channel number selected in the top right corner of the screen, e.g. PR 1.
3. You must then Press the button labelled Display until a window titled INFORMATION is displayed on the screen.
4. Only when the window titled Information is present can you continue by pressing the digit (1) twice and then pressing the button titled LINE. If you make a mistake then press Display again to remove the window titled INFORMATION and repeat the process. (Display - 1 1 - Line)
5. Once you have successfully completed step four you will notice that a menu appears on the left of the screen. You can then select which option you want, either RESET or an EEPROM RESET using the arrow keys. To execute an instruction please use the RIGHT ARROW KEY and not the ENTER button.
Make sure you have properly conducted a FIRST TIME INSTALLATION and an AUTOMATIC SEARCH. If having done this you can try conducting a manual search in an attempt to force / lock the channel.
This will erase the DVBT tuner memory and reset the interface card. This may resolve poor channel reception, the inability to store channels or even receive certain channels.

Instructions - Please refer to your DMTECH remote control and user manual provided
1. Turn the Television ON and select digital television by pressing the button labelled TV / DVB-T located under the power button on the remote control.
2. On the remote control locate and press the button labelled Menu, found at the extreme bottom left of the remote control.
3. A Menu should now appear displaying options. Scroll down and select the option labelled SETTINGS using the ARROW KEYS and the enter key located in the middle of the remote control. On the next menu you must select INSTALLATION to move on to the next menu.
4. On this last menu scroll down to the last option labelled FIRST TIME INSTALLATION and select it pressing the enter key. You will then be prompted to delete all channels, using the left arrow key to select yes and press enter to execute. The television will reset and prompt you to commence an AUTO SEARCH. Follow these instructions to tune in channels.picture
Digital Television requires much more from existing aerial systems. Having more than one digital TV may reduce signal quality and strength depending on how the aerial system is set up. It is therefore recommended that if you decide to use more than one digital television you use a booster and or at least make sure you are using a digital ready aerial. Using an existing Aerial that is split may reduce signal strength depending on how many times it is split. Please see the diagram below. The best solution when using an existing aerial is to purchase a booster device. Aerial Splitting - Why a booster is recommended. A booster is used to apply a small current that boosts the existing signal. A booster can be purchased from all main TV/HI-FI - consumer electronic product retailers.

I have just bought the Bush combi A322d hd ready lcd 22 inch tv/dvd. I have tried several times to tune it in but it doesn't tune in all the digital program properly that I had before using a standard tv...


Is your antenna "omni" or "uni" directional? "Omni" means you won't have to aim the antenna but "uni" antennas have to be pointed in the direction the nearest tower/s. You'll want to go to AntennaWeb.org and enter your address. This will show you locations and distances of TV towers in your area. My location is over 39 miles from any tower so I get virtually no reception with regular HD antenna. If your more than 20 miles you'll need to get a fairly high gain antenna and have to aim it in the direction of the TV tower.

I have tried re-tuning my mums tv but all I get now is no signal with a countdown from 5 minutes before it switches off. I have tried going back into menu then settings etc but I'm not getting this come...


It sounds like you are not getting a signal from your antenna connection. Check the cable & connector which goes into the back aerial connection of the TV. It will switch off after 5 minutes because it is not receiving a signal & if you are getting the menu box then the TV is working ok.

Sound only


Means the TV is foobar. How do you connect it? TV Aerial, cable, RCA, SCART, S-Video, Composite, HDMA. Checked your cables, made sure they are all snug? Made sure your source (eg DVD player) is OK?

Use the aerial outlet from your sky box and run the aerial lead to your additional tv. There should be two of these spare if you are using a scart lead for your main tv.
