I got a new 14" duraband tv from adsa a few weeks ago but only just got an aerial. I followed the directions to plug it all in and press 1 and a screen should come up to tune the channels in. But all I get is a blue screen with a countdown from 5 minutes and then it switiches off! Ive tried starting again but nothing seems to work!

I have no direct idea but you could try a few things........
I assume you get these via an aerial, the first I know is obvious but are they on air in your area? then I would try feeding the TV via another aerial to see if this brings it back ( aerials and cables can decay and cause many curious effects to notch out signals) so if a second aerial works replace your original system.
The TV may have a skip option to jump/ignore some channels check on this, failing this factory reset or tune again and store. Also with previous point if TV small move to another location (next door or friends house).
Sorry best I can think of other than a service engineer ......
Assuming your location receives an average signal strength from the transmitter, a weak signal reception, could be due to:
- Wrong location of your aerial.
- Is it obstructed by vegetation or other buildings?
- Is the aerial pointing in the right direction?
Check the internet for your nearest transmitter or repeater station in relation to your location so you can align you aerial properly (one trick is to look at the direction other aerials around you are pointing and follow accordingly)
Have you installed a good quality cable and connectors?
Have you checked the cable is not shorted or damaged in any way?
Do not introduce kinks of more than 90 degrees
If you live in a weak signal area:
Have you installed a high gain multi-channel aerial?
If you install a good quality cable with good quality connectors and aerial you should have no problems receiving digital TV signals.
Hello Without its remote control, you can't select its AV channel. Just try to get a new remote control or buy a universal remote control, which have setup codes for Duraband Tv with it. Setup codes for Duraband are: 0189 0135 0157
0153 0254 0458 0217
Direct Code Entry
Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
Enter the 4 digit code from the code tables. Note: after a valid code entry, the red indicator turns off. For an invalid code, the red indicator flashes.
With your device on, press CHANNEL UP. If the device responds, no further programming is required. Note: If some buttons do not operate your device, try one of the other codes for your brand.
it's the aerial, tv has nothing to do with channels. it's the signal that carries the channels. i'm pretty sure if you had it hooked up to a cable box, you'll get all the channels, so i'm sure your tv is fine. i would double check on the aerial and positioning the attenna has some factor into it.
Is your outdoor aerial a proper freeview aerial and are you in a strong or weak signal area.You can check here:http://www.stevelarkins.freeuk.com/freeview_digital_tv.htm Also check your connections as the coax may be shorting with the braid or a bad connection.once checked try ordinary channels on upstairs tv and if ok retune all your digital channels. This can be due to a few problems.Firstly make sure your aerial is
pointing in the right direction as beam aerials attenuate(disregard)
signals which are not pointing directly at the aerial. make sure you are using good quality 75ohm cable i.e rg6 and connections are good and not shorting out. The length of run of the cable will also affect the signal as will any splitters or joins in the cable. If
you know the signal is good in your area then it will be down to the
aerial,cable terminations ,aerial position or a combination of these. If
the signal is poor you can either...Buy a high db gain arial which will
amplify the signal and or a masthead preamp which will again boost the
signal. please note that if your aerial is not pointing in the
correct direction then any boosting of a bad signal i.e ghosting...will
only make it worse. try starting from aerial direction then connections then a high gain aerial and or booster.

First off you need to retire that ps2 and join the PS3 revolution, well worth the money although with the recent drop of the inferior x-box 360 the PS3 may follow suit shortly.
Now, I'm gathering from your discription limited as it may be that you had an adapter that connected the the stock cable that was included with your ps2 which consists of the end that interfaces with the ps2 and the end that is ment to provide the signal to your tv which includes your composite video (yellow) and your left and right audio (red&white).
If this is case then it should be a simple matter of removing the adapter that changed the source (ps2) signal to aerial and pluging the yellow red and white cables direct to your tv (standard imputs at the rear of the television should be video 1,2,3 ect.
Then just make sure your tv is on and set to the correct imput and you should be rockin and rolling in no time.
Hi Sandra , it could be poor signal ,worth trying another box on your aerial , also the aerial lead could cause this even the one from the wall plate to the Freeview box ,if your analogue picture is snowy then I would suspect the aerial have you looked for a signal strength meter in the menu , might show how good the signal is
hope this helps
I am not sure about Direct TV but dish network does not allow the hookup to go through their box...it must go through the TV only. Speaking with Duraband at 1-800-256-2487 confirms you have to have a Duraband remote and universals won't program to it. Ask for parts dept. and order a new remote. Sorry - not good news for me either!!!
