TV Turner Problem

The TV worked perfectly well in the U.S but in Nigeria and India, the tuner cannot pick any signal. Please advise on the best way to proceed. Is it a hardware or software problem? PAL or NTSC problem?

The US uses a different broadcast standard than elsewhere in the world, and it is unlikely the tuner hardware will be able to receive signals properly outside of the USA. The tuner should work when plugged into a cable or satellite feed, though, I bet.

I doubt software can help this problem unless the tuner is using software defined tuning hardware, which is very rare.

Sony kp-57ws510 plays perfectly through vcr but refuses to pick up satellite feed


The VCR puts out a video signal. The satellite feed is an RF signal that requires the tuner to be working.
Your TV probably ewon work with an anttena either.

How to tune a tv channel


This could be too much signal.

Just to be sure though, try the set in another room where one of the other TVs works okay. This will help you see if it's a cable or a TV signal issue. If you pick up all the channels okay it's likely that that other TV point has some bigger signal losses due to the cabling.

The mux (transmitter channel) carrying the BBC signals will be amongst the strongest at each and every TV transmitter across the land. This is because the BBC and the main ITV channels have to reach about 96% of the mainland UK population in order to the broadcasters to fulfill their remit.

TV tuner sensitivity varies between brands and models. It may be that your old TV was just about okay with the signal power, but the new TV's tuner is over saturated.

A simple and inexpensive diagnosis tool is a variable attenuator. The MA1620 on this page is perfect for that job:
Splitters amplified splitters and attenuators

It will give you a way to reduce the signal level at one TV without affecting the other TVs in the house.

If you have a cable box and can set your TV to channel 3 then you should be able to watch cable. If you want to watch over the air broadcasts then you need a digital converter box which you can buy at Best Buy for around 40 dollars. You use the converter box as the tuner and set your TV on channel 3.

I purchased a MDR513h/f7 hdd & dvd Player/recorder for my cable TV. I can not watch one channel while recording another. Comast said I must have a dual turner and that is what I purchased (I think)....


This model has only one tuner, I'm afraid. You can only watch one channel at a time, unless you split the cable signal going into it. One side goes to the recorder, the other to the TV. Then you use the single tuner in the recorder to record and the TV's tuner to watch the other channel.

Panny TV PT-53WXD63 having RF input gone bad


You can most likely fix this yourself.

You have had the back off before, so you know how to get to the circuit boards. You will have to remove the video output panel as well for this repair.

Look for a box that has the RF connectors attached to it and remove it.

Open the box and inspect the solder connections on all the devices, including the grounds around the sides of the box. The grounds are a big issue on all tuner and switching connections.

Solder all of the connections in the tuner switch and you should be good to go. I would recommend a 45 watt iron, if it is too hot it can lift the traces off of the circuit board.

If this does not work I would recommend a technician to diagnose the tuners in your set, as this is the next circuit to receive the signal.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Dual toner card


You will have to install each tv turner software not different folder in the program files folder.

During the installation of the drivers and software you will be prompted with the directory where the software will be installed, on this page you should select say for eg:

for the first tv turner card C:\program files\ hp tv turner
for the second tv turner card say c:\program files \hp tv turner 2

this should be done for every directory mentioned during the installation.
other wise both the card will try to use the same driver and software files, there will be a clash, thus one one tv turner card will be viewed.

No receipt of signal or antenae


Since it has voice or sound then I don't suspect the tuner but probably the tuner does not have the 33 volts that goes through r106 location number on the board. It is a 27K resistor and can be bought for about a dollar at Radio Shack. (pack of 2or3) A repairman or someone experienced in electronic soldering and desoldering can change it easily. Could cost around $50 to repair depending on the serviceman. If it has rca jacks (red, white and yellow) The tuner can be bypassed if you have a cable box that passed these signals: audio left and right and video. Hope this helps
