Question about Sony KP-53HS30 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

No signal except for one channel

I have a KP53HS30 and it has been working fine. All of a sudden I started losing reception on the higher channels. I don't have cable at this time and was doing just fine with the local channels until now. I lost reception of the 60's, the 50's, the 30's, 20's, 10's, and now all single digits channels, in that order, except for channel 2, all within about an hour. There was somewhat of a rainstorm going on at the time, so I thought it may've had something to do with it, but that was 12 hours ago now and I still can't get any reception except for the one channel. I have gone through the normal menu options available, but I can't find anything there that would help me fix it. Can anyone help?

Why does my tv continually drop antenna tv channels. I have to rescan tv several times a day

Assuming that we talking about digital channel could be couple reasons. First- too small antenna or in wrong location. Usually at evening, night hours there is less interference from cars, running electrical equipment etc reception is better. Far away stations reception is also better at night. Trees, houses etc also affect reception. If you in USA you can use site: antennaweb.org to determine correct antenna and direction to receive channels in your location.

I have a new hdtv antenna and my hdtv gets all the local channels except 8. The direction from my house is 171 and that is also channel 4. I get 4 fine but not 8. what's up?

hello,
There would be weak signal reception at your antenna so it can't get the other channel. So change the antenna direction. If there's no result then increase your antennas hieght means keep your antenna at higher position.

Tv picture changes and recording is unwatchable when trying to rec one of 4 local channels

It is the signal from the 4 local stations that is the problem, because you can record all others ok. Borrow another VCR and try to record them, if its the same tell the people who run the local channels that they are losing viewing figures, because their channels cannot be recorded.

Samsung tab keeps dropping wgt624

You are losing the signal? If you move about the area reception will differ. I'm not sure what your question is? May things will cause a signal loss. The device location, device antenna, interference, Wireless Channel, etc. Is the wireless secured? Change NetGear Channels.

I cannot get reception on the flexible antenna which came with the Casio JY-70B Portable Color TV. I need the users manual

Small antennas are usually inadequate for digital reception except in very high signal strength areas. You must also perform a channel scan befor attempting to tune a channel.

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.

Sudden no signal on digital channels on a Vizio VX37L

That may not be correct. You would not lose all your digital channels. Vizio has an un-addressed problem with losing digital stations. Multiple threads are posted due to this problem, which is why I am on this site. I have lost all digital stations on CATV connection. The Toshiba set in the next room is getting over 150 DTV channels, the Vizio, only analog. Zero Digital.
