My Samsung digital satellite receiver DSB-4700F, does not turn on any more, I plug it in and turn on the switch in the back nothing happens.


Plug a fan or something into the plug you are using to be sure you have power. If yes, look for a fuse. If it has a serviceable fuse, there will be a round knob, probably somewhere on the back. If it has a fuse, take it out and take it to Radio Shack and they will determine if it is blown -- and sell you a replacement if it is.

If there is no fuse and you have power, the plug could be bad (lost contact with the wires). The OFF/ON switch could be bad. If you go this far, and you decide to take it apart and remove the switch, proceed with caution. There are capacitors in the device that hold enough electrical charge hurt you! But if you do, again, Radio Shack can test the switch. And that's about it as far as a person with no training can trouble-shoot/repair a device such as a satellite receiver.
I wish you luck with it. If this has been of help to you, please take a sec to rate me. Thanks!

Says updating channels 0% complete. Has been doing this for a number of days. Contacted Sirius and they say they can't help me.


Antenna jack is busted, or you have no signal (also due to a bad antenna jack). Without a signal, it will just stay at that screen, since it's trying to download the update. You can purchase repair services for your model on eBay.

I cannot retune my samsung tv- model no LE37C53CF1W- COULD YOU ADVISE HOW TO RETUNE, mANY THANKS, Jim Lauder


Hi,Does the icon look like a large satellite dish?
Make sure your TV is on "TV" and not "DTV" before retuning.

To re-tune analogue channels:

I have a Samsung TV and that icon is not accessible from the menu if i am watching the tv on the digital option of my remote. You have to switch your tv to the "tv" option on your remote and you will be able to access the icon from your menu.
(on your remote, you should have a button with TV/DTV on it)

To re-tune analogue channels, if you want to re-tune digital channels, then look for the "D MENU" button on your remote. Press this then scroll down to the icon that looks like a large satellite and then on "Auto Store" This will re-tune your digital channels :0)


Take care and hope it helped.

It's about aproduct informaion


Yes Samsung does provide satellite receivers in its product family,

Here are some samples

DSB-B350V

DSB-B350W

DSB-B270V

DSB-150F

These receivers can be seen on Samsung website promoting Sat Receivers

http://www.samsung.com/global/business/settopbox/productSubType.do?ctgry_type=37&ctgry_subtype=50


The receivers produced today have a huge capabilities compared to what was offered 30 years ago when the craze started. These were the isolated communities that started to recognize the difference between Cable and Sat entertainment. You could freely tune into raw signals mobile units sent out like football games and similar new mini casts. Now the receivers along with proper reception capabilities, your reception dish and the quietly of your reception head. It all depends on what you want, 100 channels or 3000 channels?

The manufactures like Samsung have been providing the ability to receive NTSC & PAL signals and watch in the format you utilize depending the region of the world you are. Except for the US Market, this is because the entertainment originated in the US so why offer something not needed. Now with the worldwide internet and the ease of manufacturing a signal unit able to operate on any voltage system

110-240 at either on 50-Ghertz or 60-Ghertz cheaper and the simplicity can produce a higher quality dependable product. So even the US market is able to benefit finally from conversion capable reception from either DVD players or Sat receivers, including DVR recorders. As for your Net-Share or being able to receive free signals, Samsung is able to receive general signals provided free, not really difficult to set up a system to be capable of this, but you are still limited as to the actual amount of channels available. I think you’re more interested in receiving your entertainment without the annoying charges and monthly key updates necessary to view a provider’s decision on what it rebroadcasts from the entire amount of original broadcast they actually receive.

Have Direct TV using a Sony Digital Satellite receiver model #SAT B2-2 /Sony Satellite dish purchased in 7/97. I get local channels thru Direct TV. Recently, local channels will show on the Direct TV guide...


Your dish is out of alignment. The local channel satellite doesn't have as strong of a signal, so a slight misalignment will cause problems.

It could also be an F-connector needs to be replaced at the dish or multiswitch (if you have one). Sometimes moisture builds up inside the connector and corrodes the copper stinger inside.

If you go into your satellite signal strength menu and find the local channel satellite, you're sure to see either a weak signal or an intermittent one.

One more thing, if a tree has grown in the line of sight between the dish and the satellite, this will cause signal problems too. In this case, you either have to trim the tree or move the dish.

Hope this helps!

P.S.
The customer service reps at DirecTV usually idiots reading from a script with no real field experience.

We bought a 20" analog/digital tv the analog channels come on fine but we it scans for the digital channels it says no siginal will we be able to watch it when the change takes place even though we can't...


This could be caused by two different issues.
  • Digital signal reception is bad. The digital signal must be locked in, digital signal reception is either on or off (not like analog signal reception where you can receive a low signal and a fuzzy picture). You may need to adjust you antenna direction and height or obstructions around your antenna, reference the web site for your specific location (address) for antenna compass headings. http://www.antennaweb.org/aw/Address.aspx
  • Television is faulty, digital receiver is bad. Your new television has two receivers, an analog receiver and a digital receiver. A simple power surge will knock out your digital receiver. Make sure you have a quality surge suppressor connected to the television power and the antenna is properly grounded. Return the television for a replacement and purchase a quality surge suppressor.
You must add a quality surge suppressor to your digital television! http://ezinearticles.com/?Power-Protection-in-the-Home-Theater---Use-of-Surge-Suppressors-to-Guard-Expensive-Electronic-Gear&id=41318

Good luck.
