Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

I have a Samsung LCD TV (LA32R7 I think) and in recent weeks I am getting "no signal' when trying to watch DTV. Has always worked fine in the past and nothing in the system set up has changed. Signal strength says 95, bit error level ranging from 0-3. Any advice? Thanks, Angela.

Hi Angela.

Bit error rate ranging from zero to three may be the cause of the problem. Bit error rate is related to the level of noise in transmission and the way affects signal is represented by the value called SNR (signal to noise ration). Even if the BER minimum threshold is 10-6 (with 10-10 being the ideal transmission), a bit error of 3 on ten can cause the box responding with no signal.

If there is any device that can cause interference nearby, turn it off (Eg. big power supply, RF transmitter etc.)

If you are using an aerial DTV system, check aerial and wires and if a signal booster is present, check the signal booster, which is commonly causing the noise. Other reason for noise is a bad cable or connection.

If you are using cable DTV, then it is usually a short or a bad connection in one of the cables. Check connector and check wallplug.

If the cables (or aerial) are OK, then it can still be a defective DTV box.

Most of the time the problem is given by a wiring problem or by a defective device like a bad signal booster or DTV box.

In some case the problem may not depend on devices located in your household, but may be the result of a defective DTV local node.

Usually when you have problems of this kind, the best thing to do is contacting DTV. They will investigate to find out if there is a problem with the local node or other part of the infrastructure, then they will send a technician to check cables at your home or to replace DTV box.


Regards.

    Hi Angela.

    I see that you gave me a bad feedback and refused my help by asking to other experts. I have not see any other message or request from you.

    I am sorry about your decision. On your request the problem will be passed to a different expert.

    Goodbye and good luck.

    Ginko.

I have recently bought a 19DV500B TV and tried to install it but think it is in analogue not digital as it comes up on screen no signal. How do I get it to change. Thank you


I had the same until this mornin. It installed the Freeview channels (we no longer have an analogue signa), and we loved it! Since then, "no signal". We also DO have a Freeview PVR, so we could watch through the EXT1 sourse.
The "Source" button on the remote control handset offers you input option (TV, DTV/USB, DVD, etc etc). I was using TV, which is for ANALOGUE signals. I have just selected DTV/USB and omg! success!! And relief!!!
If this sorts you out too then my work is done. x

No signal on samsung 40"lcd tv


IF it is an ATSC tuner ,newer type ,( digital tuner) it needs better antenna, most importantly Check the cable from Antenna to the connector. using multimeter , put on resistance ,any, anc check both ends of the cable, when there is no change on the multimeter consider the wire is broke somewhere. Make sure the antenna is pointing towards the tv station. also check www.antennaweb.org i think to see the DTV channels in your area. GL

Can't retune sharp aquos lcd tv


This is the best place that's near the manual you need.
They have the LC32D44E manuals, but not the "BK" at the end. I think the "BK" just means BLACK.
But, I think it will work for your TV.
Here's the link:
http://www.sharp.co.uk/page/downloaddrivermanuals#

Click on the "Sharp Europe - Manuals and Download "
Then, Operation Manuals
Then, LCD-TV
Then, put your TV model# for the search.
