Hi,

Initially, would suggest checking for a blown fuse at the rear or inside the Sky box. Your description of "no power whatsoever" indicates that the mains is not reaching the internal power supply/regulator of the box. Of course, it would also help to try the unit in another outlet.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Panasonic tv model TH 42PZ80B; a Panasinic Blu-Ray dvd model DMP-BD50; a sky box (not as yet HD) and a Sony video SLV-SE 830G. I have a Satellite dish and a normal TV aerial. In the loft I have a...


You need to try and isolate the piece of equipment which is causing the problem.

You've already tried the aerial lead direct to the TV and this is OK.

Disconnect all scart leads and try the RF on its own.

Try the Aerial lead to video, then video to TV.

Try aerial direct to Sky box, then to TV.

Try just connecting the RF out from the Sky box to the TV (no aerial input), can you tune into a good channel 68 picture from the Sky box.

Then Try the VCR to the Sky box (no aerial input), see if you can tune into the VCR and Sky channel.
Hope that helps.......

Hi

When you take Freeview from Sky its called FreeSat. You have to order the card from them by phoning them (click on link below for more info) and when you get the card follow the steps they give you to have it activated which takes around 30 mins to do.

Sky box will not switch on


Hi
I know this sounds very obvious, is there power at the wall outlet?.
(In the UK,) has the fuse in plug top blown?.
If both above ok, check fuse inside sky box. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU MAKE SURE THE POWER LEAD IS REMOVED FROM THE SUPPLY. Remove screws from sky box cover and remove top, around where lead enters the unit you should find a glass fuse, if this has blown it should be replaced with identical value fuse as that which was originally fitted, failure to do this will cause ireversable damage.
Good luck

Just bought a samsung ps50a557s3f 50" plasma tv and the picture isnt very good.Have only got normal sky at the moment and i was wondering what the best settings are


Hi Smudger

Not sure if you still have this issue, but i have just bought this TV & also use sky (not + or HD)...

I got myself a Monster Cable Home Theatre surge protection unit from comet, basically it helps filter out all the background interference (picture & sound) & helps boost the signal sent to the TV..

I use a gold plated scart lead from the sky box to the TV & the picture is spot on.......i've not noticed any ghosting/pixeling etc & am well impressed...

The unit came with a top end HDMI cable & cost £135 (bit excessive you may think, but to buy the unit & cable seperate would cost £250!!) + the cable is a 'cable for life', so you can get a free updated cable as technology progresses :-)

My sky signal was always at half power (you can view this from the sky menu options) & now its almost full signal

Hi Debbie,

Check the picture format setting on your Sky box.

Press Services.
4 for set up.
1 for Picture.

Theres and option that says 16:9, 4:3 or 4:3LB, make sure its set to 16:9.
Then go to Save settings and press the Select button to save the setting.
