Question about Nokia 5300 Grey Cellular Phone

2 Answers

The signal strength on my Nokia 5300 has dropped to almost nothing. I can not get any signal when indoors and very little when outdoors. Do you think there is something wrong with the internal antenna?

Hi,
Yes the internal antenna may become weak.You need to contact the NOKIA CARE.They will replace or repair the same antenna and the phone will be ok.
Thank You

    Hi,


    This is not only caused by the antenna problem.Check whether the signal is strong there.Put the sim card someother mobile and check.If the signal is there then the problem is with the internal antenna only.


    Thank You

    Thanks for your response!!

    If even signal boosters would not help, in that case this seems to be an issue with the antenna and you need to get it repaired.

I bought aRCA air ultra thin multi directional indoor HDTV antenna,I cant get this to work with my tv, a 32mf330b/f7 no matter what I do no matter how many times I run the autoprogram,can You help.


Indoor aerials are exclusively for areas with a strong signal and the way digital tv works a good signal is essential.

I expect the signal where the aerial is sited has a poor signal strength and a high gain outdoor aerial will be needed. I suggest you have a look around and check what the neighbours are doing but bear in mind the signal strength in built up and fringe areas can be the radio equivalent of micro climates where moving a few yards in any direction and you could either be freezing or growing pineapples.

If you can take your tv to a good aerial and do a retune and store the found channels you might be lucky and discover your indoor aerial might receive a few channels well enough for viewing.

Signal transmission error (between indoor and outdoor units) which means a faulty indoor or (more likely) faulty outdoor controller board. Call a tech.

I bought HDTV/UHF/VHF/FM INDOOR PASSIVE ANTENNA please help me to install it it is not working


Is the antenna the correct one for your environment? Do you have the antenna pointed at the stations you want to receive? Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get an idea of the location and likely channels you can receive at your location. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in the list of channels you can receive. (These may match the limits of the indoor antenna.) TVfool lists the stations and the appropriate antenna that will likely receive each station.

Tall trees and buildings will block the signal. Get the antenna as high as possible. Move the rabbit ears and UHF loop to maximize your signal strength. Then make sure the TV is set to use the OTA tuner (ATSC for digtal stations). (That may mean changing the source in the setup menu.)

Then scan for channels. Move your antenna or parts of it and rescan or edit the channel list. (For some TVs there is a weak signal setup option that will let you manually enter the station number (including sub-channel). Then it will provide the signal strength information as you move your antenna.)

I hope this helps. An amplifier may help you bring in weak stations with enough signal strength for the tv to see them.

I have a D link router a outdoor antenna which isadvertised for a 3 mile range. I am about 2oo yards from the antenna. My computer indicates a the signal strenth as good but i keep dropping off the net....


please observe signal strength as when you are connected to network and till you drop off, there may be distraction in signal strength while you are connected and when you check it again, it comes to good again.

I can't get FOX on my converter box--what is the channel # for FOX?


It could be your antenna. Some retailers sold consumers UHF-only outdoor antennas and not VHF/UHF combo antennas. Other outdoor antennas may not have a power boost included for the VHF antennas (rabbit ears). The new DTV signals from stations are now broadcasting in lower power signals than before June 12.

Outdoor Antenna


KMSP/FOX 9 and KARE 11 both broadcast on VHF signals. WCCO and KSTP broadcast on UHF signals. You will need a VHF/UHF outdoor antenna to pick up KMSP and KARE 11 and also get all the other channels.

Indoor Antenna


Check your antenna to make sure it's a UHF/VHF antenna. You may need an indoor antenna that has rabbit ears -- that is the best way to get KMSP/FOX 9 reception on your TV. Your antenna should have a power boost to amplify the VHF signal if you are having trouble getting FOX 9 or KARE 11.

What Antenna Is Right For You?

Need help locating the proper outdoor antenna to receive your local television broadcast channels? Based on geographical maps and signal strengths, AntennaWeb.org locates the best antenna for you, whether it's a home satellite system, high-definition television (HDTV) or a traditional analog set.

Make sure you antenna is pointed toward Shoreview, where FOX 9 transmits from.

I have tried two different antennas and the screen says that the signal is weak I bought the TV today


If you're using an indoor antenna (rabbit ears), you'll find that there's little difference between them. Yes, you'll see all the fancy knobs, but mostly all they do is delay the signal from making it to your antenna jack, hopefully enough to reduce ghosting on analog channels...or a resistor circuit that reduces the signal strength. Receiving a good signal with an indoor antenna can be difficult...there can be obstacles between your tv and the broadcasting station, you could be too far away...it's hard to tell. Before you use an outdoor antenna (consider a good RV antenna if you need to use it indoors), try an antenna amplifier. It'll have to handle both VHF (at one time channels 2-13) and UHF (channels 14-69 analog). If it's an "antenna amplifier," it will be sufficient. If it's a cable amp, it would be a hit-or miss. The amp may be able to boost your signal with the indoor antenna you have now. Alternately, you can buy an indoor antenna with the amp built in. Hope this helps.

Can't view my digital channels


Get an outdoor antenna. Digital signals very rarely reach indoor antennas unless you are within ten miles of the signal origin.

Fading Signal Strength


could be a worn rf modulator
this controls the radio frequencies.
If you are having trouble with dropping calls that last for a little longer than normal 1-2 mins then that would be my guess
