Why can't my TV find a digital signal when connected to my digital ready aerial? Tuning for digital stations finds none. Does this TV require a set top box? If not how can I make it find and play n

hey, when connect any aerial in the back of the TV make sure you have a look for the name of the connection you use ( Skart,ext1,ext2,usb,hdmi1, hdmi2 etc.) so you can do a search on that extension. if you connect something on Hdmi1 and search on hdmi2 you won't find anything. you have to search on Hdmi1. PS: good luck.

as far as I am aware, you need a standard analogue aerial to receive Freeview, not a dish. The aerial plugs into set top box, which is connected to tv by scart. Freeview is different from Freesat

Hannspree TV tuning from aerial problem.

do you mean if you hooked up the tv with the aerial antenna can not get any channel? ok if just a white raster only and doesn't scan or tuned even manually and auto search, the cause is bad tuner.

I have a MXT Standard definition set top box model num: MSTB202SD. When I try to auto tune it comes up database empty, can you help?

The commonest cause of this problem is tuning the set top box when the aerial lead has become disconnected or is plugged into the wrong socket (should be in the rf in or antenna socket) . As part of the normal tuning process, all previous tuning info is automatically deleted and with the aerial lead disconnected you will then end up with nothing. Make sure the lead is properly connected to the aerial and tune again.

Another possibility is to go into the main tuning menu and select return to factory condition. This will force a main reset deleting all data and you will then have to work through the whole tuning process from scratch including, setting your State, setting the tv resolution (720p, 1080i etc.) If neither of these options work, and you are certain that the box is connected to a good signal, then the box may be faulty. Good luck.

How to connect settop box to tv with no avs

You will have 2 UHF plugs on your set top box.. One for input (aerial) and 1 for output (TV). Connect your main aerial to set top box UHF input and connect an Output UHF lead from set top box to TV. Next switch on set top box and retune tv on a spare channel until you get set top box channels (good idea to switch on menu on set top box so you know you are tuned into set top signal )

My analogue tv doesn't do anything when connected to the new set top box. The scart is connected and the aerial also. Are there some anologue tv's that can't receive the digital signal? I already have 1...

Have you checked that your aerial is connected into the set top box & not into the TV? The aerial signal has to go into the set top box & then the box will be connected via your Scart cable into the TV. On the TV you will need to select the Scart input ie. AV1. This should give you the set top box incoming signal, you might then have to tune in the box by following the on screen instructions. Hope this help.

Hi i just bought a super nes system it came with RF switch power unit which i have connected to the appropriate connections, i have an LG TV with an golden eye and don't seem to be able to tune the...

Make sure everything's connected in the correct sockets. Turn the SNES on, change to one of the Analogue channels (one of the channels which you control with the TV remote) and start scanning for a signal. The RF cable has to be connected to the analogue port (where a TV aerial would plug in to get analogue channels) and the SNES needs to be switched on.

The alternative is to get a SCART-compatible cable that works with a Gamecube or an N64 and use it with the SNES, as Nintendo had the foresight to add an EXT port which'll let you play the SNES on an AV channel.

NES screen static

You hit the nail on the head! Whats probably happened is that the ground wire on the coaxial cable is not making a good connection with the end piece and therefore not getting a full signal to the TV. Try AV cables good luck!

Nes Console flashing

okay there are three solutions the flashing is normal what it is
is that the connections are old and worn out so you can go buy a new 72 pin connector off ebay and search online alot of people have them and then you have to open your nes and replace it pretty cheap and easy but this will still flash once in a awhile

or you can buy a top loader there are alot on the market and they range in price as well
there is one that is made by nintendo but in good condition it is pretty price some times

and there are the aftermarket one which i have two and they are very well made and most play two systems i have one that play nes and snes and i have another that play nes and sega i bought both form ebay for around 40 -50 dollars each and they are very well made but they only accept the controllers that they are shipped with which is disappointing they look and have the same connection as snes or nes but nes or snes controller don't work and if you play alot and use stuff like game genie then the originals are the best to start with

i have a nes top loader and a original and two aftermarket toploaders as i used them all for differnet reason mostly some games are harder to get to work then others if you want to stay original then find the best one you can like one that some one bearly played then open it up your self or take it some where and have them clean it and replace the 72 pin connector with a new one and this should help greatly with the flashing also clean your games with some rubbing alcohol that some times help as the games are some times the probelm or you could have them professional cleaned up

what i do is any game or system i am planning on keeping is find the best one i can or a good price then i clean and replace all connections and clean all the games by opening them up then storing them in bags inside storage tote so they won't get nasty again and it seems to work but if you are starting with a system that is dirty and games that are pretty older then you relly have to play with it to get them to work and most of that time it's just better to pay alittle more for one that is in better condition i buy alot from garage sales and thift store that are in good condition just need a little touch here and there just look at the connections on the games the borad that the connections are on is white not brown or orange and the connections are gold not black and the system should have a clean looking inside don't worry about the connection as all older connections are bad just get a great looking system that functions turns on and off and the cartiage lockdown work and is smooth functioning the crack it open clean it up use alot of rubbing alcohol and compressing air and eletrionic cleaner and you should be good

to find the system look on ebay or search the internet try local game stores or try gamestop online

well i hope this helps thanks

Manual left behind in Afghanistan

make sure yo have the leads connected correctly,after you connected an aerial lead from the box to the tv aerial input,make sure the box is switched on then tune the tv until you see a signal from the box (usually 35)if you do it through a video you may find its on the same frequency causing ghosting on the picture,in which case you will have to change the output frequency of the box or thee video
