How to reset tv signal on dish satellite


There are two methods to reset TVs. The first is simple to do; a Hard Reset. The other is somewhat skilled; is a Factory Reset (System Reset). To make it a hard reset, just unplug the TV from AC mains wall socket, and re-plug it back after 15 minutes or so. If you do this by overnight is better. This procedure will make it a hard reset. If you want to make it a system reset [Factory Reset]; you have to enter its service mode option, and select the factory reset option. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Service mode entry, adjust and exit procedure to many popular brand TVs are given. Never forget to exit the service mode, after all adjustments have been done.

Sky hd box no satellite signal


Have you checked that the dish is still properly aligned? Could the recent storms in the UK have thrown it off? Likewise, have you checked that all the cables and plugs between dish and receiver are in good order? Lastly, if you have a Sky contract, have you called their customer support line?

The summer solstice is near and it is common for signals to be misaligned. It does not matter if you are connected with cable or satellite signals. Many techs over look this common phenomena. Any storms (electrical especially) in the atmosphere may contribute to this. You cannot control this. Other things to consider, if you have dish, would be tree branches (beginning to gather leaves and blocking a signal) your dish may have moved and needs realigned (wind or snow caused). Also be sure you have good tight grounds (RF Connections outside as well as in). Be sure you have a good grounding, ground (Earth Ground in this case) if you have satellite reception. Clean the satellite dish, a very good idea. Also, check with your provider, you may need an upgrade with a newer reception box. Hope this will help. These are basic correction tips and not just mumbo jumbo. Thanks for asking me!

How to turn off subtitles on a hitachi tv


This may depend on the signal source of the TV. If you are watching OTA TV (or your TV is interpreting the CC from the cable or satellite signal), then use the CC button on the remote. Alternatively, depending on your exact model Hitachi TV, try using the menu to find a Tools or Options sub-menu and then turn off the CC from there. This could be under a different menu item. If you add a comment with your model number, I'll be glad to give the exact menu steps.

If you have a set-top box (cable, satellite, digital-to-analog converter box, DVD recorder), the captions may be turned on at this source. Then you will need to disable the captions from that box. With a converter box, press the CC button on the converter's remote or enter the menus for that box.

With a Dish TV set-top box, press Menu on the Dish remote, go to Properties (item 9). Click Select and then go down to Closed Caption (item 6), and press Select again. The first item in this sub-menu lets you turn on and off the captions. Press the left button and then up or down arrow followed by Select to change the setting. For other sources, check the instructions for that device or add a comment with the specific source for a solution for that device.

I hope this helps.

(the Dish CC procedure is for the box I have to deal with; I can't guarantee that updates/model changes have not changed the procedure.)

I have lost my digital satellite reception. All I getting is No Signal or Bad channel.


could be a couple things. First I would check the cable(s) from the dish to the box. Check whether the connections are corroded, but also check the insulation. squirrels, rats mice and birds love to eat the stuff. You have a signal leak somewhere. If everything looks good there, you might check the positioning of the dish itself. maybe it moved during a storm.

Lost signal from the satellite


Signal Fade And Loss ~ Important, especially during winter!

Keep in mind that satellite broadcasts occur directly from fixed satellites in space to users. UPLINKS TO that satellite can happen from almost anywhere in the world! This includes broadcasts from remote studios, satellite vans and trucks.

Even signals from the main providing studios are susceptible to weather conditons even tho they have huge, high-gain transmitting dishes!

Weather is a major factor for both the uplinks and downlinks! Storm clouds can block the signals anywhere in the signal path(s). Rain clouds do too ~ even if it's not raining yet. Water-laden clouds make some of the BEST signal attenuators.

So one may have a gorgeous day in San Diego (let's say), but storms back east could trash satellite reception at his location and potentially everywhere else!

As you know, weather conditions all over the US are changing constantly with many severe storms occurring this past week and during any winter. In fact this week there was total signal loss on several satellites and I suspect storms back east were a big factor.

So it could have just been issues of timing for you. The UPLINK had intermittent problems with signal paths semi-crippled by weather... YOUR weather was CLEAR, but your reception was far from problem free ~ only because of weather problems elsewhere.

If you see intermittent satellite reception do check out the weather... especially back east.

Hope this helps!

Lost satellite signal after hooking up an hdtv


Provided you did not make any changes to the cabling through out the house there is no reason that you would have lost satellite signal except if something is in front of the dish, some one moved the dish e.g. child bumping into it if it is on a pole, or there is a major storm in your area e.g. blizzard, hurricane etc. You also may have snow build up that may have caused this issue or a form of wildlife that has decided to use the dish as a perch and is blocking the LNB's. The most likely result would be trying to split a signal that is coming from the dish going to another satellite receiver or the multi-switch. There are a few ways to get a signal to that TV.
1. RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO ITS ORIGINAL CONFIGURATION.
2. Either come off the multi-switch in the attic or outside the home and run new lines to the new receiver if you have one for this TV.
3. You can run new lines from the dish to the new TV if your system has an available port(s).
4. This is the least preferred by most homeowners as it will result in two tvs viewing the same programming- You can put a splitter into the line going from a receiver to the tv and run one of the out ports to the new tv and the other back to the original tv.
I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya. If I can be of further assistance please let me know.
