Question about Philips Televison & Video

1 Answer

I can not install the Philips RG6 quad shield compression connectors onto the Philips RG6U cable. There does not appear to be enough of an opening in the connector to allow the dielectric to fit. I need to install 6 cables since the cable co. will not do it due to the unusuall construction of my house. I had no problem using the regular RG6 connectors on some older cables I had run in the basement workshop. I thought using all Philips cable, connectors, compression tools, etc. would work. HELP!!!!!!!! I'd like to get this finished over the Thanksgiving weekend starting Tu. night.

First, I did not have a projection tv problem. I had a problem with RG6U cable. I solved the problem by having a cable guy sell me some compression ends. No one from FixYa ever contacted me, so I took matters into my own hands. I'm sure I would have heard back if I subscribed to your service.

Won't use you again!

If you can get the other channels, the first thing would be to do an auto channel search on the TV. It is uncommon to have just one channel fail to come in.

The next thing would be to check each connection from the aerial on down, and the cable for any damage. Digital TV needs the best cable, quad-shield or RG6, and the preferred connectors are F-connectors.

It may be worth having the whole shebang updated for the very best picture.

What kind of cable to run for HD update?

I ran regular RG6 through my house and both DirecTV and Comcast work just fine. Longest run I have from source to box is about 50' if that factors into your planning.

How do i get local digital channels

You can still have a problem after you have set the TV to scan for local digital channels (see instructions). You may still need a suitable aerial, good coax cable from there to the TV (you have to use quad shield RG6 cable), and maybe even a digital TV signal amplifier.

My soniq had perfect recpection on dtv last night then lost it all... have tried different aerials to fix it but it wont pick up any channels

That sounds like a problem between the antenna and the television. First off, be certain the antenna is aimed properly. If there is any equipment between the antenna and the television, bypass it for the time being and run your cable directly to the television. If the TV still won't detect a signal, connect it to something that outputs a signal on analog channel 3 or 4 and scan for channels again. If still nothing the problem is most likely in the television. If you do get a signal from the device you use to generate analog 3 or 4, then the problem is an inadequate signal from the antenna. Check the connectors on both ends of the cable for secure fit and stray shield strands which can sometimes cause a short circuit to the center conductor at the connector. Be certain that the shield conductor makes good contact with the outer part of the connector. If your antenna system requires an amplifier make sure it is connected to power. If the amplifier is a mast mounted unit make sure the power injector has no splitters or other devices connected to the cable between it and the mast mounted unit. Check for defects in the cable itself. If the cable is routed through areas of your home that prevent inspection you may want to run a new length of cable, at least temporarily, to verify that the existing cable is or is not where the problem lies. RG6 or RG6 Quad cable is recommended for proper resistance and shielding values. Once you get the signal back, reconnect any equipment you bypassed earlier ONE AT A TIME. If you lose your signal after reinstalling something then that item was a part of the problem. Good luck!

What sort of wire is necessary to run a low loss RCA line extension about 70 feet?

If you can get it, Quad shield RG6 would be good. You would need to make 2 runs. It's a bit thick and you would have to find RCA ends that would fit it too. This would help from interference. Another option is RG6. This wire and the ends can be found in most home improvement stores. Something else you want to do is add a preamp at the beginning to make sure the signal is strong to begin with. When you run the wire, keep it away from any power lines. If you have to come near a power line, cross it a 90 degrees.

I bought Steren RCA - RG6 jacks (P/N 200-085) and need to know the proper way to install them on RG6 cable. Do you fold the braid back over the jacket when installing? Is there documentation that descibes...

Here is a link to the manual for the connectors you bought:
If you don't have one already, you will need to get a compression tool for these connectors. They range in cost from about $25.00 to $50.00 US. Also, If you aren't experienced with stripping coax cable you should probably buy the stripper they recommend for these connectors.
As for the braid, don't fold it back and usually the center conductor should be cut to about 1/4 inch on connectors like these.

Good Luck,

No signal

I had a similar problem. I then noticed that my antenna has a RG6 cable. This is good. My TV requires RG6 and requires TV(RF) cable that is also RG6. Insignia comes with a TV(RF) cable that is RG59! That's a cable with a smaller diameter center connector than RG6. Consequently, when that smaller RG59 was run from the converter box to the TV's larger RG6 female connector, no signal connection was completed since the center connector made no physical contact with the TV's female connector. I found a RG6 cable to replace the RG59 cable supplied with converter box and all worked then. Also, you must force the antenna's RG6 male plug into the smaller RG59 female connector, but it'll make it.
