I have a week signal can yu tell me why please


Assuming your location receives an average signal strength from the transmitter, a weak signal reception, could be due to:
- Wrong location of your aerial.
- Is it obstructed by vegetation or other buildings?
- Is the aerial pointing in the right direction?
Check the internet for your nearest transmitter or repeater station in relation to your location so you can align you aerial properly (one trick is to look at the direction other aerials around you are pointing and follow accordingly)
Have you installed a good quality cable and connectors?
Have you checked the cable is not shorted or damaged in any way?
Do not introduce kinks of more than 90 degrees

If you live in a weak signal area:
Have you installed a high gain multi-channel aerial?

If you install a good quality cable with good quality connectors and aerial you should have no problems receiving digital TV signals.

Hope this helps

On my 03 accord no power to a/c clutch

The a/c clutch circuit is controlled by the PCM on your Accord. It receives all necessary inputs from the car, and the driver's requests, using odvious buttons, switches, pressure switches, and several engine inputs to determine whether or not to engage the comp. Engine load/accel, temp., ambient temp, etc will all affect this. Also, if all seems normal, I have run into two of this generation Accords that had the control circuit drivers inside the PCM burned out by sloppy a/mrkt alarm system installers. These guys wreak havoc on most newer cars, because they aren't trained to properly isolate/disconnect sensitive electronics that can be damaged easily by shorting wires, or tapping into a circuit that should not be used for this purpose, etc. Good luck! And the security/immobilizer systems in the newer vehicles have NO NEED for additional security add-ons. If someone tries to sell you on them, they are scamming you for money, PERIOD.

Htddw7600, brand new, sub amp is not working, only way to get any bass sound is to unplug the sub cable from back of main amp and touch it on side of sub out port.

You have a very good of the best of SONY..SUB does not get activated automatically especially on STEREO mode.DIRECT STEREO Notes • No sound will be output from the subwoofer.
.your system has Dedicated Power Amplifier for 2 Externally Driven Sub-Woofers (200W RMS x 2) order to activate the sub woofer amplifier you need to make a selection on the surround modes while you are switching the modes of the surround you will see the speaker position on the display of receiver as well..if you do not see the sub woofer it wont be activated..Sound Field Program (A.F.D) is a good example to test it..

Additionally please follow the instruction on your user manual to activate the SUB ,as is follows..

Low-frequency (bass) signals can be directed to the
subwoofer and/or the front left and right speakers
according to the characteristics of your system. This
setting also determines the routing of the LFE (low-
frequency effect) signals found in Dolby Digital or DTS
Choices: SWFR (subwoofer), FRONT, BOTH
• Select SWFR if you connect a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings.
• Select FRONT if you do not use a subwoofer. LFE and
low-frequency signals from other channels are directed
to the front speakers according to the speaker settings
(even if you have previously set the front speakers to
• Select BOTH if you connect a subwoofer and you want
to output low-frequency signals from front channels to
both the front speakers and subwoofer. LFE and low-
frequency signals from other channels are also directed
to the subwoofer according to the speaker settings. Use
this function to reinforce low-frequency signals using
the subwoofer when playing back sources such as CDs.

You have to have the magnet on the wheel VERY close to the sensor on the fork leg. Also play around with moving the sensor up and down the fork leg, all the while keeping the magnet VERY close to the sensor.

Let me be more specific on our problem. We installed the reciever according to directions. The 2 questions are: first, we have Dish Network. Isn't it possible to watch tv with the Yamaha reciever off with...

Look towards the back of the manual. You go into setup. Choose HDMI. Then there is another setting that you have to activate. The receiver must be set to the HDMI input that you want, before the receiver is turned off. I just installed my receiver last night and followed that procedure. Works great.
