Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console

2 Answers

My brand new 55" Toshiba LCD television is giving me the following error message "Digital Channel Signal Strength is Low". It worked fine for the first week, but now has no signal. It's hooked up to a Directv box, with an analog signal. All of the other tvs in the house are working fine. Can't figure it out? I switched boxes and checked connections.

    It was working fine for years and for almost 2 weeks with the new tv. Why would the signal all of of a sudden be weak and why has it not affected the other tvs in the home?

    I hooked the previous tv up to the same box, has to be the new tv, settings?

Since the tv is hooked with a DirectTv box then the error message comes from the box, not the tv - which is just fine. Check the box and its antenna, or, better call the guys from DTV to do it for you - the problem is on their equipment.
It has happened now because electronics just break, for no apparent reason.

Thi is a result of a weak signal coming into your house. You (or your cable company) could put a signal booster on somewhere before the splitter. All it is is a little box that plugs into power, your cable goes in one side and out the other. Your cable company can take a signal strength readings at your tv and modem to see how much boost is needed.

    Have you tried using another TV to the same TV box that is giving you the error?

    There are two kinds of TV digital tuners. ATSC is for over the air digital TV from an antenna-since you have no antenna, the TV will tell you your signal is low when it searches for these. The other kind of tuner is QAM. This tuner is for non-encrypted digital TV on cable. Not all TVs have this tuner. If yours doesn't, then you can't get cable digital TV on that set without a cable box. If it does have a QAM tuner, then as a minimum, you should see all of the local over the air digital TV, on your cable.

Digital signal low message


check the connectors at the ends of the coaxial cable (The white or brown antenae cable) The metal connectors may look ok at first glance but unscrew from the cable partially and give low signal.

My tv says digital channel strength is low


Hello
If you are using this TV with Cable connection, the strength of cable signal is low. Contact the cable operator and ask him to put a signal booster at your premises. If you are using it with On Air transmissions receiving, include an antenna signal booster at the mast of your yagi antenna on roof. OK

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

My Sony KDL-46V2500 can't receive digital channel of our outdoor antenna, the same antenna line that feeds to another TV that works fine, can someone help?


signal booster, different tuners require different signal powers, by splitting the feed you've effectively halved the signal strength, a booster should bring it back,

Turned on set....screen all black except a dark blue rectangle in center which reads:Failed to receive broadcast [E202]


That message is presented when a selected digital channel is too weak to decode. Let us hope that something was accidentally changed:

Is the channel legitimate?
Is the antenna/cable still connected (to the Digital input)?
Go into menu - setup - channel setup. Is the selection of either cable or air channels correct for your situation?
Use menu - setup - Antenna Setup-DIGITAL to examine the signal strength. Is there nothing at all, or is it just a question of strength?

Odds favor a change in channel setup that you would not have made intentionally, or a simple physical problem (input cable, etc.). Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made. Hopefully it will be simple and cheap!

Weak or no signal message


  1. Since my problem (Samsung/Comcast) began with a channel selection button pushed on the TV remote when it should have been pushed on the cable remote, I figured the problem lay with the TV.  Although I was getting the "weak or no signal" msg., the actual signal strength bar graphic showed it to be strong. Disconnecting did no good. I surmised that the TV was simply not recognizing the box.
  2. I looked at the manual for my Samsung 750 model. 
  3. Page 20 discussed "Selecting the source". I accessed the TV menu and selected "Input", then chose the "HD..." item from the highlighted list. Voila! My tv works again.
