Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Got a new tv antenna installed the other day, rescanned the channels and can't get Channel 10 in Sydney, Ingleburn (yes, we do have television in Ingleburn)! Also, it rained on the weekend and ABC dropped out completely, but came back when the rain stopped. I tried 209.25 and 216.26 MHz manually for Channel 10, but didn't work. I did have ABC with my old antenna before, but Channel 10 didn't work in the rain or when it was windy. I have a 40 inch Sony and with a Digitec PVR. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Peter

With all antennas you MUST ensure that it is all OK, physically check, there are no whiskers of braid caught between Inner & Shield, Make sure the center pin IS contacting in the socket. Check The connections at the Antenna end. Check the earth braid. If you can check continuity with a meter, check for "Shorts" between braid & center conductor. make sure it is Pointed at the Transponder... even a little off will give signal loss. rain fade is a huge problem unfortunately.

What about a receiver amplifier for your system, I have one from radioshack and could receive stations on the old conventional bands from almost over 200 miles away "before the digital switch" and now with digital stations around 75 to 100 miles away depending on conditions. The amplifier is mounted on the antenna mast, and thru a 75ohm down fed cable to the power supply that also has a fm trap to filter out static and in area strong transmissions from local stations!

These answers do not fit my question. One day, on three different sets in my home, where I have received NBC for years just quit working. Did NBC quit broadcasting? It is not snowy, etc, it is just no


Ok This is what I found out and hopefully found your solution..
Have you heard of Double Rescan?
The Federal Communication Comission Designed a Process called double rescan.
Double Rescanning erases and thenreprograms the channels in the converter box an digital TVs memory.
To Double Rescan, you will first need to disconnect the antenna from the converter box or antenna.
Then disconnect the converter and or digital tv power supplies from the wall. Wait a minute before plugging them back in. The antenna should still be disconnected.
With the antenna disconnected run the channel scan function on the coverter box or digital tv. When the scan completes you will have completely removed any channel data the converter box or digital tv, had in its memory.
Now it's time to rescan for real.
Do this by reconnecting the antenna to the converter box or digital tv and running the channel scan function again.
Thus the double rescan is born.
If the double rescan doesn't work, then try some tips and tricks to get your converter box up and running..I will have to look up the url again that has the tips and tricks...
If the double rescan doesn't work let me know and I will look up more options..
I really hope this works..

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Some of my channels were lost after I TRIED RESCANNING I I LOST


Check your antenna direction (antennaweb.org or tvfool.com are good sources for signal direction). When I lose channels, it's a digital signal that came in with "bad signal" strength and my external antenna has rotated in the wind. (Oddly another TV in the house doesn't seem to lose the signal as easily even though they share an antenna.)

Also check the weather conditions and time of day. I've gained distant channels when scanning near sunrise or sunset and lost others during thunderstorms.

I hope this helps.

Viewsonic N3250W- turns on, the screen flickers on then its black


This could be a problem with the tv's memory. Try resetting the TV. Unplug the unit for a few seconds (10-60). Then restore the TV to the factory default settings. Viewsonic has changed it's menus at intervals so you may have to check your manual. It may be Menu > Setup > Memory Recall or Menu > Options > Restore Default (or something slightly different). From there, click enter, use the right or left arrow to select YES, hit enter. Leave the menu system (Menu twice). Then hit Menu > Channels and rescan all channels.

An alternative cause of the problem may be a weak signal - check that your antenna is pointing right at the station and is the correct type to get the signal at the distance you are from the station. (Usually a weak signal would also have the audio breaking up but weird things can happen.)

I hope this helps.

(who recently had a channel pair that started out with flickering signal issues and then had one channel lose video and the other audio. The memory reset and rescan resolved the problem.)

The words "weak signal" flashes on screen at different places and do not receive a picture.


seems like you are using an "off the air antenna" that receives weak signal, you may be too far from the station, go get a roof top amplifier antenna or subscribe to digital service from cable, satellite or at&t uverse. If you think your antenna is getting good signal, try to rescan your tv for available channel. Make sure your TV set up is correct, if you are using Off the air signal, your setting should be set at "Antenna or off the air", then rescan your TV. Normally on Satellite or cable box, you just watch it on video channel or component input, if you are using HDMI then tune to HDMI channel.
Check your connection to make sure they are making good contact. If you can post your set up, I can better solve your problem.
For a resource on "off the air" antenna, go to www.antennaweb.org for help.

Using an over the air antenna I get all channels but one.


I experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:

Channel 10 analog

Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.

hope this helps u out.
