    Computer has a built in tv tuner, but the scan for channels doesn't find any
    It says I need a tv lead plugged into computer?

  • d_wolfe1 Nov 15, 2009

    I'm in the UK
    The PC appears to have a socket, which I've tried without luck.
    I would've thought if it had a TV tuner, it would pick up signals indepentantly?

    Does the PC have a socket to plug a TV antenna into or some other form of socket for a signal from a receiver? What country are you in?

By "TV" Signals, do you mean video signals? If so, the WIndows video player does a good job of playing most varieties. If you mean off air or cable TV signals, you'll need a receiver. Look at the Elgato, or similar brands. They plug into a USB port and are capable of receiving analog and/or HD ATSC signals, or cable signals. Keep in mind that digital cable signals are generally a mess to identify and sort out because they are on different digital channels and subchannels. You may need a digital to analog converter in front of your Elgato to keep from going nuts trying to fighure out where everything is.

The Netflix screen tells me I am not connected to the internet. What can I do to get reconnected.?


Go to your TV settings.... see if the TV detects the wifi signal.... if not try entering you wifi password to connect.
THE TV NEEDS TO DETECT THE SIGNAL FIRST. If not, try raising your modem to a window sill or a shelf, it may not be getting the signal. If it is getting the signal, call Netflix 800.585.7265....and explain your problem.
Good luck.

I have leads on patient and machine says leads off. everything is hooked up, why won't it give me a reading?


Any one of the lead is broken. you have to replace the ecg lead.
All the ecg machines have self diagnosing before its acquire the signals from the patient to print signal. while performing this function the machine detects all the signals from all the leads are prompt or not , if any one of the lead is missing it will not go further and will indicate check cable.

Hello, In the last couple of days my Sony TV (KDL32S3000) has been working fine for about 10 minutes then a message appears saying 'POWER WILL BE TURNED OFF BY AUTO SHUT OFF SOON' this message...


If this happening when TV is viewed then it is possible that the auto shut off is active as no signal is detected by the processor and so is instructing to shut down.
However this fault is related to a problem in the signal detection circuit, if this happens with the auxially circuit- play station- then some logic gate is faulty which needs to process and detect the signal.
Remove power for few hours and see if the fault resets, if not the circuit needs a technical review.

No instruction to set up the freeview box digihome dvb 915 can you help


Set up should be quite straightforward assuming you have all the bits.
You will need
  1. a standard co-axial aerial lead from your TV antenna to the female socket on the Freeview Box
  2. A scart to scart lead to connect the Freeview box (tv out socket) to the television.
If you wish to connect a video recorder or other equipment you may also need a second coaxial lead (male to female) for the RF through socket to connect to the aerial in socket on the video recorder.
If your TV does not have a scart socket you can connect the scart lead to the scart socket on a video recorder and then use the normal method of watching videos to view the Freeview TV pictures (here you may need to press the PAUSE button on your video recorder to prevent it going back into standby-mode after a few minutes).
Simply connect the box to your TV, turn on the power and the auto channel-scan will immediately detect and install all available channels.
If the Freeview box has been previously used in a different location / with a different TV transmitter you may need to re-tune it. Press the menu button on the remote control, scroll through the menu to set-up. Follow on screen prompts.

My Sharp LC-32SB24U says An incompatiable video signal has been recieved. Check the output device settings?


It sounds like an HDMI lead has standard video on it or the output from a digital unit is not the correct specification for your TV.
Check the instruction booklet for recomended signal sources and then check your DVD, Video, Computer for the right type of signals to be outputed to your TV.
Hope this helps.

"no signal" showing on tv screen


  1. Make sure the HDMI cable is connected to the HDMI OUT port on the back of the PLAYSTATION 3 system. Connect the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI Input port of the TV or display monitor.
  2. While the PLAYSTATION 3 system is in standby mode (red light on the front of the system), hold down the touch-sensitive power button on the front of the system until the system goes into standby mode again . (So the light cycle would go from: red light --> green light --> then back to red light). This will ensure that you have held down the power button long enough to reset the Video Output Settings.
  3. Turn on the PLAYSTATION 3 system and once the system finishes powering up, the Video Output Settings will automatically reset to the standard resolution (or detect the current display output settings of your TV/monitor).

Pink wire whats it for, it on a pioneer avic-d2


The brake sensor wire (Lt Green) can be simulated with a toggle switch to ground.
Pink (CAR SPEED SIGNAL INPUT)
The mobile navigation system is connected here to detect the distance
the vehicle travels. Always connect the vehicle’s speed detection
circuit or the ND-PG1 speed pulse generator, sold separately. Failure
to make this connection will increase errors in the location display.
Orange/white
To lighting switch terminal

Light green
Used to detect the ON/OFF status of the parking brake. This lead
must be connected to the power supply side of the parking brake
switch. If this connection is made incorrectly or omitted, certain
functions of your navigation system will be unusable.

Violet/white
(REVERSEGEAR SIGNAL INPUT)
This is connected so that the navigation system can
detect whether the vehicle is moving forwards or
backwards. Connect the violet/white lead to the
lead whose voltage changes when the shift lever is
put in reverse. Unless connected, the sensor may
not detect your vehicle traveling forward/backward
properly, and thus the position of your vehicle
detected by the sensor may be misaligned from the
actual position.
Note: When you use the ND-PG1 speed pulse
generator (sold separately), please make sure
to connect this lead.
When you use a rear view camera, please make
sure to connect this lead. Otherwise you cannot
switch to rear view camera picture.
