My handset keeps saying searching and i dont know what to do can you help me


You may be in a bad reception area, try using it elsewhere. If it plays up try resetting to factory default that may clear issu. If the gain on the handset is not very good, i.e. it does not have good reception, you could try one of those signal boosters, see a good repair shop for options

good luck

Why is there no reception after running autoscan?


Ensure your tv is in the mode of broadcast in you area...if local broadcasting is in digital ensure the tv is set to digital. Ensure that the aerial/antenna is fully working and correctly connected. You can check this by attaching another tv to it.
Try another autotune after the above has been carried out.
If it does not work try a reset and another retune, ...using your owner's documentation ensure that the setup is followed as specified.
Disconnect all other peripherals from the tv during this procedure.
If the worst has happened the tuner may need to be corrected. It does not sound as though there is anything makorly wrong.....hopefully


GOOD LUCK

Pixelated picture on all channels when viewing tv through xw380 recorder


If you are in a good reception area and your tv channels are coming fine it does look like a recorder issue, try another HDMI cord just to be safe, now when you tried in the shop was that through a different tv? if that is the case the input signal needs to be checked with another device.

I cannot get reception on the flexible antenna which came with the Casio JY-70B Portable Color TV. I need the users manual


Small antennas are usually inadequate for digital reception except in very high signal strength areas. You must also perform a channel scan befor attempting to tune a channel.

I want to hook up to air frequency with an antena. out side but i cant get a signal help?


If you're trying to get off-the-air reception here in the US, remember we switched to digital broadcasting and the old analog stations are off the air. This means that if you have an older analog-only tuner, you'll need a digital converter box to pick up the new broadcasts. Before the switch, the US government offered coupons to help pay for the boxes, but that's long since gone and you'll have to pay the full price. Radio Shack, Wal-Mart and Best Buy all carry the converters, and you can find them online as well.

Be aware that even with a converter, you may still not get a signal. With the new digital broadcasting, signal strength is critical. With older analog broadcasts, a weak signal could still give you a watchable picture. But with digital, weak signals may not even be detected. People living in some areas have found that they get no off-air channels or far fewer channels than they did before the switch.

Much of the trouble is because of the line-of-sight nature of the new digital system. With the switch to digital, broadcasts moved to new higher frequencies that don't spread out or follow the Earth's curve like the lower analog channels. Many people have found they needed to put up rooftop antennas pointed toward the station so they could pick up a signal. This is especially true if you live in a valley area or where there are many tall buildings between you and the broadcaster.

Good luck with your reception, and thanks for using Fixya!

Craig cvd506 convertor will do channel scan but will not find any channels.


The only reason this would happen is if it is not receiving a signal. Make sure that all of the cables are tightly inserted into the jacks and are connected to the antenna. If this doesn't work, chances are that your antenna is not the right type to receive strong signals in your area. This is common if you live too far (50 (?) miles) from the broadcasting station. The best type of antenna in this case is a combination UHF/VHF rooftop-mount antenna, designed for deep-fringe reception. I have one of these and it works like a charm. Good luck! -Der Strom

I just purchased an amplified indoor HDTV Antenna to better receive HD tv. Is the LCD display supposed to be on all the time??? How can I get better reception from a broken picture even rotating the...


I don't know in what area you live & therefore how strong your reception area will be, but as a general rule an indoor antenna is never the best type of aerial to have to receive digital signals, you will always find that you pick up some good strong channels but more often the rest of the channels will be poor or non-existant & will constantly break-up/freeze etc. The best advice would be to try & fit an outdoor antenna if possible.

I get no stations on my tv


Use an Antenna that Provides Good Reception of All Channels
  • Most existing antennas used by consumers will provide good reception of DTV signals. (Before making any changes, try your existing antenna first to see of it allows you to receive all the stations you normally watch.)
  • For watching DTV signals, you will need an antenna that provides good reception of both VHF signals (channels 2-13) and UHF signals (channels 14-51) to reliably receive all of the digital signals broadcast in your area.
  • Many antennas are designed only for reception of either VHF or UHF signals (but not both). For example, the commonly used “rabbit ears” indoor antenna is only suitable for receiving VHF signals. To receive UHF signals, an indoor antenna should also include a wire loop or other feature for reception in that band.
  • The reception capabilities of TV antennas also vary considerably, so be sure to talk to retail consultants and look at information on the packaging and/or the Internet to make sure that any new antenna you may choose provides good reception of both VHF and UHF channels. In addition, if you use an indoor antenna and receive signals on VHF channels, you may need to use an antenna with amplification.
  • Many antennas currently being sold as “HDTV Antennas,” perform best at receiving UHF signals; some of these models state that they provide reception of signals on channels 7-13 but actually perform less well receiving those channels. If you obtain one of these antennas, be sure it provides good reception of all the VHF channels as well as the UHF channels.
  • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
Check Your Connections
  • Check that your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television is connected properly. Make sure your antenna is connected to the antenna input of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. If using a digital-to-analog converter box, also ensure that the antenna output of your converter box is connected to the antenna input of your analog TV. Refer to the owner’s manuals of your components if you are unsure of the proper connections.
  • Ensure that your components are plugged in and have their power turned on.
  • If you have a digital-to-analog converter box, tune your analog TV to channel 3. You should see a set-up menu or picture displayed on your TV screen. If you do not see a set-up menu or picture, tune your TV to channel 4. If you still do not see a set-up menu or picture, recheck your connections.
Perform a Channel Scan
  • Digital-to-analog converter boxes and digital televisions have a button, usually on the remote control, that is labeled “set-up” or “menu” or some similar term. Press that button to access the set-up menu. Using the directional arrow buttons on your remote, scroll to the option that allows you to perform a “channel scan.” The channel scan will automatically search for digital broadcast channels that are available in your area. Consult the owner’s manual of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television for detailed instructions on how to perform a channel scan for your device.
  • Once the channel scan is complete, you will be able to tune to the digital channels received by your antenna. You should perform a channel scan periodically to check whether additional digital channels have become available.
Adjust Your Antenna
  • Small adjustments to your antenna can make a big difference in the number of digital channels you can receive. If you have an indoor antenna, try elevating it and moving it closer to an exterior wall of your home. After adjusting your antenna, perform another channel scan to see if your reception is improved.
  • While adjusting your antenna, it may be helpful to access the “signal strength meter” on your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television to determine whether your adjustments are improving the signals’ strength. The signal strength meter is usually accessed through the menu feature on your remote control. Refer to the owner’s manual of your device for detailed instructions on how to access its signal strength meter. Remember to do another channel scan after you have adjusted your antenna.
  • Television stations broadcasting in digital use both the VHF band (channels 2-13) and UHF band (channels 14-51). Many indoor antennas use “rabbit ears” for the VHF band and a “loop” or “bow-tie” antenna for the UHF band. Make sure you are using an antenna that covers both the VHF and UHF bands and have connected it properly.
If You are Still Having Difficulty:
  • Until June 12, 2009, some stations will be operating at reduced power levels. If you are not receiving certain digital TV stations, this does not necessarily mean there is a problem with your antenna or digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. Check with the TV station to find out whether they are planning changes that will improve reception.
  • When an analog TV signal is weak or receives interference, static, snow, and distortion will often appear on the screen. Digital broadcasting will provide a clear picture; however, if the signal falls below a certain minimum strength, the picture can disappear. This “cliff effect” means that if you watch analog TV stations that have static and distortion, you may have to adjust or upgrade your antenna system.
  • Simple indoor antennas provide minimal performance that may not be suitable for your location. If you are unable to obtain satisfactory DTV reception with your current indoor antenna, you may wish to obtain an indoor antenna that includes features for better reception of UHF signals, as well as VHF, and/or an amplifier to boost the received signal (often referred to as an active indoor antenna).
  • Generally, an outdoor antenna will get better reception than an indoor antenna. However, the performance of outdoor antennas can degrade over time due to exposure to the weather. If you are having problems, check for loose or corroded wiring, broken antenna elements and that the antenna is pointed in the right direction.
  • Try to keep the length of wire between your antenna and digital-to-analog converter box or digital television as short as possible for best reception.
  • “Splitters” that are used to connect a single antenna to multiple digital-to-analog converter boxes or digital televisions reduce the amount of signal available to each device. If you are having problems, check whether reception is improved without the splitter. In some cases an “active” splitter that includes an amplifier can solve the problem.
  • If you are near a station’s broadcast tower, reception of that station, as well as other stations, can be impeded by strong signal “overload.” Consider using an “attenuator” or removing amplifiers to improve your reception.
  • If you decide to replace or upgrade your indoor or outdoor antenna, many types are available from electronics retail stores at a variety of prices. Websites such as www.antennaweb.org provide information on the locations of broadcast towers and the types of outdoor antennas appropriate for the stations you wish to receive. If you need assistance with upgrading your antenna system, check with a local antenna retailer or antenna installer.
  • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
Hope it may helps:
