What do I do when the tv say no signal it just have a blue screen

First you'll need to make sure your TV is on the correct input. By the way, it's likely your TV is ok, unless the input you're using is defective. If you have an external antenna for over the air reception the TV must be on the antenna input and set to Air or Antenna, not cable. If you have basic cable the input must be set to cable. If you have a box for cable or satellite you can use antenna, composite, component or HDMI input. HDMI or component will give you the best picture. At this point just make sure the TV is set to the same input the box is connected to. If you still see the no signal then the Main board is bad.

Aquiring Signal displays for 5-10 minutes before hearing audio

It's a bad Sirius tuner. You can find them on ebay for 50 or so rebuilt and they are better than new. It's cold solder joints on the antenna input plug. Hope this helps

No picture/signal

what u need to do is check your antenna as well as check that your tv is getting input on the av/hdmi/etc inputs, if your tv is still not picking up antenna signal, try on another tv unit or try the tv on anothe antenna signal. If you get no tv signal u need to replace the tuner printer circuit board, the one with the rf tuner module on it. Good luck.

Fujitsu plasma tv is on but no picture on screen. monitor screen seems to work as it displays the "video input", but there's no picture

Check all inputs. Are they all dead. Try other signal source. Does antenna input work when connected to known good source?Vide input label being displayed indicates most of the tv is working. You need to determine if you have lost signal in the video input.

I have a 32" panasonic which is less than a month and hve issues with pixling

This normally causes by weak signal. To make sure your TV has no problem, you have to try all inputs. If all inputs have the same problem. You may think of the main board was defected.
Additional, you can play DVD player to see if the problem there.

Model(sp-r1a).acquiring signal. for weeks,nomatter the dock or boombox.

It's a bad tuner. It is by far the biggest and most common problem sirius and xm have had since their start. The antenna input board has a broken or cold solder joint. If it's out of warranty, you can pickup a rebuilt tuner for around 50.00 and it's "better" than new. Hope this helps

Doesn't receive and displays "acquiring signal"

The "hideaway tuner" is bad. On the antenna input board there is a cold solder joint and it looses it's ground. If it's out of warranty you can get a rebuilt tuner on Ebay for about 50.00 This has been a huge issue among sat radio users for the past three years. The rebuilt units are better than the new ones. Hope this helps

All of a sudden my radio displayed acquiring signal and now nothing will work. I have reset it to factory default and still nothing.

Tuner needs to be replaced. Where the antenna is input into the board, it has a bad solder joint. If it's older than a year that's the problem. It has been a BIG! issue with SIRIUS & XM. Sorry for bad news but I hope this helps.
