Sony U92 will not pick up satellites

I have been trying to get a SonyNavman U92T to recognise satellites, each time it is programmed it is stuck where the previous owner lived & will not recognise its new location 100 miles away .
Error message : inadequate satellite signals .
I have been trying for a fortnight - even took it to Cornwall - but still no joy .
I've tried resets , leaving it on until the battery expires , seting it 3 or 4 times a day - always the same error mesage

Looks like I've been stiffed by an ebay trader ? Barterstorm

this is the manual and I suggest to read to see if there are any issues related with the home ..location setting s...I think that may be something with a protected location r so ..and this can be resolved by updating the firmware ..practically reinstall the software inside..and will take it from 0 ...in the same time it may need to install new maps after that ..anyway this is a link to the support site ..and there are manuals ..and download s for i t...
In normal way if you remove its internal battery ..and reset it ..it should not remember the last location and should be able to enter your own settings ..and locations..I understand that being guided by another reference point is frustrating ..but it has to be a way ...study the manual and see if there is anything in there ...if nothing is relevant than you should update the firmware for it ..

    Thanx for your ideas :

    2 things :

    This unit is a U92T - there wasn't this option to choose when i registered .

    & the manual says nothing about any 'protected addresses'









    I still want the trader to take it back - really

    I sow that there isnt the eaxt model there but usually they are compatible at the software level and maps when it s just a 2 numbers away ..anyway if you have the possibility and do not exceeded the 7 days I would send it back if I were you ..cause it seams to have something wrong in it ..cause I never heard of this issue before either ...if you reset and enter the new home..than it should have worked well..My advice is to return it if you can .. cause the firmware update is a risky and not easy to reenter the maps and all ..

I just purchased a new RCA 32 inch w/ DVD. When starting up it asks if you will use Cable or Air. I have Dish Satellite and picked air. I only get one channel and if I try to go up or down channels I get a...


You should not have had to choose cable or air. When you have satellite it is considered the same thing as cable. Air is over the air rabbit ears antenna free programming. When you are connecting a satellite receiver you only have to turn to channel 3 or pick the correct av, component or hdmi input. Oh you must be connecting more than one television to the same satellite receiver. When that is the case tv #2 usually has to be set on a different channel and the satellite tv company tells you which channel. You still use the satellite remote to change channels and leave this television on one channel at all times. This television is good enough for its own hd satellite receiver connected with component cables or an hdmi cable though in order for you to see its full potential for displaying hd programs.

When the laptop turned on, it's keep beeping all


Sounds like you have a stuck key, When the computer is off brush your arm across the keyboard a few times or try to find the stuck key and use a tooth pick to pop it up. Have you spilled anything on the keyboard?

Try remove the hard drive, if you can enter the BIOS mode, adjust the setting for hibernate( off recommended ).
If the problem still persist, try remove/ clear the CMOS battery inside the main board.You need to open all the case to do it!!

Hope it's work!!!!

My tomtom xl cannot pick up a signal


After updates it takes about 45 seconds before it will do anything again and sometimes it won't pick up satellites. I switch it off then on again and it is usually OK even after that but sometimes it needs to be on the move before it recognises satellites.

Sony KF50WE610 720p scale is wrong


(1) what is your source? cable box? satellite? Your source could be your problem. Your TV just pick up what is sent to it.

(2) Light blinks and buzzing is a symptom of a lamp going bad. Just change your lamp. lamp part number XL-2100
