If my wireless goes down will my tv not work. i have trouble with my service where i live

If your TV signal is internet based, then no it won't work to watch regular TV. But if you have satellite or cable TV, it shouldn't effect it... Also it shouldn't effect your ability to watch dvd's... The TV set itself will work fine without internet signal.

How do i get a signal. my tv keeps saying no signal

Check all the cable connections, assuming the ariel is ok, any connection with a screw type should be investigated, ie undo & make sure it is a good connection, 9 times out of 10 it will be 1 of these, especially if you are 1 of those people who remove the arial cable when you go on hols, start there.

If the problem is same with different input devices and you have ensured there are no loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable and sockets, the TV needs servicing.

My insignia tv shows a NO DATA BASE error on screen. How do i fix this.

Try these tips:

Connecting your Cable box through Coaxial to the TV.
1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the coaxial connectors.
2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- You need to set the TV in a specific channel for receiving the signal from the Cable Box, usually they are channel 3 or 4. Please press in the TV's remote those channels numbers and check if you are receiving signal about the Cable Box in any of them.
4- If you do, afterwards remember to continue using the Cable Box remote to change the channels instead of the TV one.

Connecting your Cable Box through RCA to the TV

2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- Press the "Input" button to go to AV1 or AV2 depending where the Cable box is connected.
4- You should be receiving signal instantaneously after you have changed the Input and keep using the Cable Box remote for changing the channels.

HDMi ( no signal, not supported) doesn't work with Dmr-Ez47v

Any HDMI cable manufactured in the last couple of years should all be HDMI 1.1 compliant, your problem is most likely the logic board in the TV itself or the HDMI connector on the logic board has a bad connection..

Have you tried hooking-up a standard DB15 VGA cable to the AKAI TV and your laptop?

If this works your problem is in the TV and will most likely have to be repaired to receive the HDMI signal since your Panasonic DVR and your laptop are not recognized by the HDMI input on the TV.

Good luck!

TV shows "No Signal" when hooked to cable. Cable has been tested with another TV and that TV works fine.

When you say "struggles to get a signal" I assume you are receiving HD programming over the air using HDTV antenna. If so, try to re-orient the antenna. Better yet, go to this website
type in your address and it will provide you with the best antenna and antenna positioning based on your location.

If you are receiving HD programming via cable or dish, contact your service provider and they can best resolve your issue if the problem is beyond the loose cable connection in your TV's tuner input.
