I had the same problem and no it is not because of heat. In most cases when you turn a scanner off it has data stored in its RAM and ROM memory banks, this data is cleared out of the scanner if you do not have a memory backup battery. The problem with your scanner is the RAM data might be corrupted, reprogram your radio using only the priority banks and never turn your scanner off unless you have a backup battery, if you do, you'll have to keep reprogramming it. Instead of turning it off, just turn it down.

Hi I have a Aldi bauhn LCD tv and its not recieving the remote signal. I have checked through a camera for the remote control light signal and it works with every button. So that leaves the reciever


Will cost more to fix then a new unit , replace it and try to buy a extended warranty with the new one, most times you can get 3 years after the original warranty runs out.

What would cause reciever 2 to have a much lower singal than reciever 1 on a 625 reciever foe dishnetwork


Hello there! Becki Barned with Dish Network customer service here! There are a few reasons for this. There could be a problem with the receiver itself, cabling, or a component on the dish itself. Normally, it is due to a corrupted cable, or the receiver not being able to pull in signal. Unplugging the receiver for 10 seconds in most cases, will help. Blog back if any other troubles!

Receiver taking a long time to transmit reciever


I assume that the HDMI works fine if you go directly from the dish receiver to the TV with either HDMI cable. And try it with a different source (DVD or x-box) in the same input port.

Take it to a Radio Shack there service centers can repair Onkyo in warranty. Most Onkyo receivers carry a two year warranty.

Reciever powers up and recieves signal (station and song titles are displayed) but doesn't transmit to car radio either through the assigned fm station or the aux cord.


IF you have a cord plugged into the audio jack, if will TURN OFF your FM transmitter. You have to leave it unplugged for the FM transmitter to work. Go to MENU and make sure your FM station is set and that the FM OUTput signal is turned up. Write back if you need more help.
Thanks,

GO TO YOUR FIRE STATION AND THEY SOMETIMES WILL GIVE YOU THE FREQUENCIES YOU NEED TO PUT INTO YOUR SCANNER. IF NOT, UNIDEN SELLS A MANUAL THAT LISTS ALL CHANNELS FOR WHAT YOU NEED.
