The tuner is bad. The antenna miniport on your tuner has either a broken or cold solder joint and therefore will not receive. If it's under warranty, they will replace it, if not, you can buy the tuner re-built on Ebay for around 50.00 and is better than new. Hope this helps

WHY DO I LOSE MY CONNECTION TO THE NET WITH MY CELL-C HUAWEI E1752 3G USB INTERNET STICK BEFORE MY ACTIVE DATA BUNDLE HAS DEPLETED?


If the device has worked for you in other locations, the most likely answer is that you have low signal strength from your network carrier to your device. To test if low signal strength is the problem, try moving your laptop to another location, closer to the cell tower you think might be servicing you to see if it starts working. If your laptop connect software has the ability to show you the signal strength, look to see how many dBm the signal strength is. The larger the negative number, the worse it it. Below -85 dBM, you will have frequent drop outs.
-75 to -80 dBm should give you usable results. -65 dBM and lower should give you very good results. If you can only find the strength in bars, 1 or 2 bars is bad, 3 bars marginal, 4 & 5 bars useful to good. You can buy repeater devices which pick up cell signals and rebroadcast them, making them stronger for you laptop to pick up the cell signal. They usually have an external antenna port which you can put outside and high to help pull in the signal. Trees, hills, and rain all block and lower the signal strength between you and the cell tower. Distance is also a big factor.

How do I increase the signal strength of my Palm Centro?


The bars show relative signal strength.

If the Motorola is on the same provider, it is the Palm smartphone that is the fault. It may just be you got a less than sensitive one. You should probably contact Palm and see if there is anything they can do short of exchanging it, otherwise exchange it and keep exchanging them until you get one that works. In mass production- these things happen.

If the Motorola is with a different carrier, that may be the difference- they are line of sight devices and the provider you have for the Palm may not have an antenna in your vicinity pointed in the correct direction for you. Which means complaining to the carrier since you know the external antenna works, but the Palm does not.

Poor signal strength toshiba satellite laptop?


Hi

The poor signal strength can be due to a lot of reasons, just a few to point,

1. Any magnetic or electrical interference
2. the location of the wireless router (If installed near an high voltage electrical wiring etc.,)
3. If any GSM towers installed very close to your location. As this has more signal strength then what your router does.

Try this!!!
1. Change your router location.
2. Try to un-install the WLAN drivers from your laptop and restart before installing new.
3. Try to check if you have pasted any sticker on the back pan of your LCD screen as the antenna is built-in at the back of your LCD.
4. Make sure you use the same drivers of WLAN which came with the laptop dvd etc.,

Which antenna can be used for sony trinitron


Hello
for Tvs have larger viewing areas, yagi outdoor antenna is the best. With a telescopic indorr antena, although it will work, but there will be some snow in picture, and some interferance, which will be noticable with large screens. Moreover yagi antenna is best for good signal strength and choose an antenna which ahs larger number of cross bars, as it will rise the strength of signal as well as clarity of the picture. Ok

Am/fm radio stations not clear... I have the AM antenna attached... but there is no attachment for FM


First of all check for any nearby source of interference.....Move your unit away from all computers, fluorescent lights, neon lights, microwaves, cell phones, and cell phonemag-glass_10x10.gif chargers. These devises tend to produce noise in the medium frequency band, where AM radio is broadcast.
If the unit plugs into the wall with a nonpolarized plug (where both prongs are the same size), try reversing the plug inmag-glass_10x10.gif the outlet. Moving the plug to another outlet might help, too.
check for fault in the antenna lead, (common) or bad earth on the antenna to body
If you don't have an antenna connected to your FM receiver,With a receiver or tuner, connect a wire-loop or T-shaped dipole FM antenna to the back of your unit. Move the antenna until you get the cleanest signal. Use a signal-strength meter or display to gauge signal strength if your unit has one.
  • Step 2 If you're still not getting a good signal, try an indoor amplified antenna, which you'll find at an electronics store. Don't buy one unless you get a guarantee that you can return it for full credit if it doesn't solve your reception problems.
  • Step 3 If your signal is weak because you live a long way from the transmitter, install an outside antenna and mount it as high as is practical. If you're primarily interested in getting signals from one station or from a group of stations in one direction, get a directional antenna and point it toward the transmitters.
  • Step 4 If you're using a portable FM radio where the only antenna is the power cord, stretch the cord as straight as possible and experiment with positioning again.
  • Step 5 Temporarily switch to monaural mode to improve a weak signal on an FM receiver.

    I have a D link router a outdoor antenna which isadvertised for a 3 mile range. I am about 2oo yards from the antenna. My computer indicates a the signal strenth as good but i keep dropping off the net....


    please observe signal strength as when you are connected to network and till you drop off, there may be distraction in signal strength while you are connected and when you check it again, it comes to good again.

    I recently bought a converter box DTA800 to go with my sony tv Triniton mod.KV-20FV300. It doesn't seem to work; programing, set-up. Please advise.


    Ah, the problem is likely your antenna. Make sure everything is properly hooked up, and that your TV is on and turned to either channel 3 or 4 (whichever the unit requires, or you can try both and see which works) then turn the converter on, and check the manual that came with it for a way to check for your antenna's signal strength.

    If your signal is good, then use the menu button on the remote and look for an "autoscan" feature, or "autoprogramming", something along those lines, and let the unit look for channels for you (mine requires this before you can use it, not that it matters because my antenna signal is weak). From there you can access the channels manually.

    Hope this helps.
