Question about GPS

Omnitech 4.3 16878-US waiting on GPS signal

I received this msg on 6/14 beginning a trip home. The 2 previous days worked fine all the way up to night before. Now I cannot obtain a signal. The GPS menu option shows 1-4 satellites and says "connected". The GPS tries to recalculate the route but ends up waiting on GPS signal. Does anyone have any ideas? Is there anything interfering with signals, conversion to digital TV or something?

Hi there, Try reset - 1. Try to press and hold the power button for 15 sec when the unit is off 2. then when the gps on check if it will go thru but if it is not try to press the reset button for 10 sec and then release.

Spoke with someone at Staples tech dept. When the tv analog went to digital the satelitte signal went also. They are waiting for a fix to pass on to consumers. Model number 16878-US. He took my telephone number and said it should be retified in 24 to 48 hours. Hope this helped.

sounds like a CDI issue!
could also be an ignition switch or run/stop switch issue.
is the bike lacking any power when running?
Maybe stator pick-up coil as well.
Have electrical components checked at the dealer.

House a/c only freezes during the day works fine at night


Check the filter. And the fins in the coil. If these are clogged the airflow is restricted and the condensation freezes on the coil. The previous owner may not have changed the filter as often as they should have leading to restricted air flow. Also its hotter during the day and the unit is working harder than at night.

SPLIT AC CONDENSER TRIPS AFTER 1 OR 2 MINS, ONLY DURING THE DAY TIME


The condensor is not cooling fast enough. Try cleaning the condensor coil. Also check that the fan goes on. At night the outside temperature is cooler and does not need much work to cool down the condensor.

We got home from a trip and have no signal, did reset, called tech support they say they had to send out a tech in a week. did a test and it says we have less satellites than previously detected??

With it saying "you have fewer satellites than previouslydetected" means you will not have all of the channels in your package, if youwill please e-mail me at michael.houston@dishnetwork.comI will be more than happy to assist you.

Satellite works fine in the day but no signal in


I have run into this problem a couple of times, once a loose connection at the LNB, other times it has been due to moisture build up (dew) in the loose connections, check all connections from the LNB through the tuner, and any other devices involved (a line map maybe?) that will most likely resolve the problem.

Same problem on my CX-7. I've had antenna replaced one so far. It takes about 30 minutes in the cold (usually on at night on my commute home) to get signal. I agree, during the summer months, everything works fine.
