After a storm my box keeps asking for first time installation but when I do it it says " no channels found check antenna" the antenna is fine as tele works perfect. Is there a way to reset the box


Call manufacture tech support. The storm may have fried it. Don't tell them about the storm because they won't go through all of the troubleshooting with you.

No picture and the fan will not stop running,


Are you receiving no picture on TV1 or TV2?

If it is on TV1 you will want to verify your television is on channel 3 or 4. In some cases with the VIP receivers it may be 65 or 72 as well. I would also suggest going through the inputs on the receiver. Most tvs would list it as a "tv/video", "source", or "input". You'll also want to make sure all connections are tight and secure. At last resort you can try a hard reset by unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds.

It no picture is on TV2, you will want to confirm what channel the TV should be on by using TV1. On TV1 go to Menu then press 6-1-5 and change TV2 to the channel showing in "TV2 out".

With the fan running that is completely normal as the DVR function is always in use. It always has the capability to be paused and to use the rewind function so the fan is always cooling the hard drive.

Unable to pick up local ''free'' channels following digital change over. Using RCA DTA800 converter and Phillips 2750/27 antenna. Can pick up only one local channel, but signal loss is more often the...


first of all, make sure all your connections are secure and threaded all the way in. Next, go to the main menu and press 5 (configuration) and press 1 (search for channels) if this doesn't work, press 4(signal strength meter) and see how strong your signal is. You may just need to re-position your antennae. If all else fails try system reset(number 5) and repeat search for channels. I've had similiar experiences with mine but I have a 62% signal strength and still get 20-something channels. Hope this helps.

Try the recommendations in a document posted on the FCC site (http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-291403A1.doc)

Also be aware the several stations have had problems with the transition. Some changed frequencies on which they were transmitting and encountered area coverage issues that didn't meet their expectations. They have been working with the FCC to remedy the problems and many stations have temporarily increased output power to compensate for the issues. Some of these stations may be difficult to receive and you may need to get larger antenna. If you are still having problems call the FCC DTV transition hotline at 1-888-CALLFCC (1-888-225-5322) or the TV station for advice.

Missing channels on my Goodmans GFSAT200HD


I had this problem, a total reset did the trick. Unplug everything, (mains, video and LNB) and then hold the power button for 30seconds, then plug the LNB, video (HDMI/Scart), and power back in (in that order). Then the problem should be solved. If it isn't try running the first time installation again. If it still doesnt work I can't help sorry.

BLANK PINK SCREEN ON 2 CHANNELS THAT PLEVOUSLY WORKED


First try a front panel reset by pressing and holding the power button on the receiver until it shuts off and turns back on. Leave the receiver alone until it is up and running. If this did not solve the problem try a hard reset by unplugging the receiver's power source from the wall and leaving it unplugged for approximately 30 seconds and then plugging it back in. Let the system come back up and if that did not solve the issue the receiver may need a technician to come out and troubleshoot it further.
There are some local stations in the Jacksonville area having an issue with their broadcast signal producing the same image. Please check with your local station to see if this is the case in your area if these are the channels you are having issues with too. Thanks for using FIx Ya and I hope this answered your question. Let me know if I can further assist you.

Philips DTR220/05 digital freeview reciever not recieving anymore


If the box is still receiving some channels, then the box is probably not at fault.

If you have done the full "First time Installation" rather than search for new channels, then eithe the aerial, connection or signal is likely to be to blame.

There have been several changes with the Freeview service over the last few months, and there will be more in the run up to analogue switch off.

In some cases, channels have moved, and in other cases the service has been switched off for a short period, low power etc.

Check the aerial on a standard analogue signal, if the quality is poor, then this rules out the box.

Loss of sound


you can try changing the assigned channel.you should have to put the second T V on a certain channel like channel 72 or 68 or something like that.on the main reveiver you should go into the menu and poke around in the setting until you see a REMOTE ADDRESS option walk through the steps and change the channel that the second TV receives its picture on, you should shoot for channel 62-72.also make sure the hisense is set to a cable input.you can go into the menu on the hisense and go to your settings and change this .it will be on CABLE or ANTENNA.try switching those around.also did you have sound before coming out of the coax output on the hisense? if your not sure then plug a vcr into and make sure the TV is working with different equipment.GOOD LUCK!
