No Satelite Signal Indication

Direct tv Receiver... worked one week and NOT the next. Started as pixalated picture. Re-power box and "searching for Sat" NO pix. Did a "dish pointing" exercise. Signal would drop in and out at 93 points but not Lock. Now .. another week later .. Re-power .. No Sig indicated at all. Checked box on a known good Satelite cable feed.. Box booted but NO Signal indication at all. My other Sat box worked normally with both Sat Dish feeds.

    I've got the same problem. Other receivers work, but my DRD485RG Has a signal the bounces from 90+ to zero. The picture is broken at best. The audio is out for most of the time and come through once in a while. It has all the symptoms of a bad cable connection or an obstructed view of the sky, but that's not it.

The "front end" of your Receiver might be defective. Since your other unit is working then what might be happening is the signal to your unit might be dropping, to check this I would use a Satellite power meter, however if you do not have one you can use your other unit and connect it to the cable that your supposed defective unit is connected to. If the unit works then the problem is the supposed defective unit, if the unit does not work then this denotes a possible cable problem. Tell me if this works for you?

My sanyo modle DS20424 has sound but not picture. We have DISH and their info shows up on the tv when the satelite is on, just no picture. Help??


I would first see if set works with a DVD etc directly hooked to one of the rear audio/video inputs.

If so I would next unplug the dish box and wait and then power it up again to see if it will reboot and cure this issue--you can also contact them....

If getting the on screen Menu but nothing else it is either a signal issue or a problem in the set---If using a receiver also reboot it as well.

Seems you set it to "Stereo Direct" mode. This is an analog only mode, while you are using a digital signal. You can change this with the mode button.
Press menu, on the main menu screen 1, scroll down to stereo direct. Turn this OFF.
This should solve your issue!

If the screen says searching for satelite the prblem is with the satelite receiver not the TV. (not familiar with Direct TV problems - usually signal strength alignment issues)

Tv picture is pixalated (blocking)


it probably realted to a weak signal from source(antenna, cable or satelite box) if a direct source like a dvd player works fine its for sure your source.

Can i hook up to my satelite dish direct or do i have to go thru my receiver first. Thanks; Delmar currah@mts.net


The satelite dish will not pass-through the video/audio from your DVD player. You will need to find an open area (preferably DVD selector) on your receiver to input the DVD video/audio. Most satelite boxes are one way devices.

Satelite box --> Receiver (satelite input)--> TV
DVD Player --> Receiver (DVD Player input) --> TV

or

Satelite box --> TV
DVD Player --> TV

Component Video inputs do not work


I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
