You should check the coax cable between the receiver and the LNB on the dish. Assuming that you can get to the dish, disconnect from the LNB - the connection will probably be covered with tape. Disconnect the cable from the receiver end. Examine both connectors and make sure that there are no stray bit of copper causing the short. With a meter, test the resistance between the centre pin and the outer screwed sleeve. The resistance should be very high. > 100Kohm. If it is a short or only a few ohms, you will probably need to replace the cable. If it varies the cable may be water logged. Damaged cable is not worth repairing even if you can find the problem area. Where I live, a bit further south than you - squirrels like to eat the insulation - and finding the damage is a waste of time. You can probably use the original couplings but don't forget to cover them with self amalgamating tape after you have checked your repair.

Hope this helps. If you are unsure or not happy about ladders then leave it to an aerial rigger.

My sony wega screen went pink & blue then black now the stand by light keeps 5 times and tv will not turn on


This is usually indicative of a power supply or power board failure inside the unit. Unfortunately there is no easy fix and you will need repairs. Please contact Sony to see how you can go about getting a repair scheduled, or check with a local TV repair shop in your area. Sony's number for this department is: 239-768-7547

My Zenith C32V28 television does not display the top and bottom of the picture. I phoned Zenith tech support who told me that it was the satellite signal. I called the satellite provider who advised me it...


This is applicable to Bell Television Services (Canada)
I solved the problem myself after two calls to both Zenith and Bell Television satellite service. On the bottom left of the Bell remote control there is a * (STAR BUTTON). Press this * button and within two seconds you must press the channel change button up or down. This will do two things. One; it changes the channel; and also changes the ratio of the satellite signal. There are three satellite signal ratio settings. Try this when you are tuned to a TV channel such as BNN (Canada) (Business News) or The American channel which has a stock ticker usually displayed along the bottom of the TV screen. Select the ratio (setting) that allows the stock ticker to be displayed......hope this helps.........Jim McP

Black line running horizontally across TV screen


A line on an LCD, either horizontal or vertical usually means the video driver board is defective or the screen is defective, does it show up as black even on a dark screen? That means a line of LCD "shutter"s is not working and there is a problem that cant be fixed by a reboot or channel change. Bummer.

Not an easy fix because of the smoke which means that there is a short from a bad ground that may have blown a capacitor because of a loose connection. Often a short on the circuit board results in having to get a new one because of damage from the sparks. Make sure it is unplugged at all times until someone can open it and look. With any luck, the damage is light and the loose wire can be re soldered at minimal cost.

Advent HT2751A display no good until after 1-2 hour warmup - maybe


After 3 years, I finally decided to open up the TV and do some troubleshooting. Found out the problem, It was a blown capacitor Location C554 Capacitor value is 2200uF 16V - costs about a dollar to replace yourself and the TV works brand new.
