What do you mean exactly when you say "failed to receive broadcast"? Does it not get a signal of any sort? What about from DVDs, do you have a DVD player attached, does that work? Did it used to work

TV is only 3-4 years old

SOURCE: 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 Start from scratch, and check the settings and connections you originally made.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!

SOURCE: 37 inch Sharp Aquos. "Failed to receive Broadcast [E202]"

This is basically a message for no signal on the tv, make sure the tv itself is on the correct input for the type of cable used. The inputs are labled by numbers on the back of the tv. The input can be changed by the button on the side panel of the tv.

Set up installing antenna, tried Ant A & Ant B no receptiom what do I do?

The first question you have to answer is whether your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts. TV stations no longer broadcast the "old analog" signals, but now transmit only in digital format. If your TV is not capable of receiving digital broadcasts, you will need to buy a special box which allows you to receive digital broadcasts. Then you would hook it up in the order: antenna -> digital box -> TV.

If your TV is capable of receiving digital broadcasts, I've found that it is very important that your antenna have a pretty much unobstructed view of the direction from which the signal is coming. For instance, if your local signals are broadcast from the southerly direction, you should try to mount your antenna to a window which is facing south.

One last point before I forget, you must make sure that you select the proper input on your tv. For instance, I have cable, and a dvd player hooked up to my tv. Before I use the dvd, I have to go into the TV menu and select my dvd. When I want to return back to cable, I have to go back into the TV menu and select the cable input.

How to Hook Up a Receiver to an HDTV

Though it utilizes the most sophisticated technology on the plant, an HDTV is extremely easy to hook up to a receiver. Home entertainment systems are designed for compatibility, whether it is a cable or satellite receiver, a DVD player or a stereo sound system.


Instructions

things you'll need:

* HD television
* HD satellite or cable receiver
* DVD player
* Stereo receiver
* AV cables
* Cable connector
* HDMI cables


Examine the back of your HDTV. You will see a series of input jacks for AV cables, (typically color-coded white and red for audio and yellow for video), as well as an antenna input and one or more HDMI input jacks. There will likely be a number of them, but each one should be distinguished with a label ("video," "cable" or something similar).

Attach the cable connector from the cable or satellite receiver to the antenna input on the back of the TV.


Connect the AV cables to the DVD player, VCR, stereo receiver or whichever other component you wish to connect to the television. The cables should line up by color: place the white cable in the white input jack, the red cable in the red input jack and the yellow cable in the yellow input jack. All three cables from each component need to go into the same label input jacks. Usually, they will all line up in a vertical row.


Find the HDMI output jack on your receiver or DVD player (some receivers will not have them--they are necessary to receive a high definition signal--but can still play on the TV through the cable connector or AV cables). Attach one end of an HDMI cable to the output jack of the receiver and the other end into the input jack on the HDTV.


Turn on the TV. Access the menu with your remote, and follow any instructions it gives you. Your HDTV may require a few additional steps to complete the hookup of the receiver (though not all of them will).


Access the "input" button on your TV remote. This will allow you to switch the TV signal to one of the cable connections you have just made. For example, if you attached the HDMI cable to the first of two HDMI input jacks, the TV will flash "HDMI 1" on the screen to tell you that is where it is receiving its signal.

Tips & Warnings

*

Not everything that can be hooked up to an HDTV is capable of playing in high definition. The signal needs to be HD as well, which means that only HD broadcasts, HD DVDs and Blu-Ray DVDs can play in full high definition (though "upgrade" DVD players will allow normal DVDs to play at an enhanced picture). You can still hook receivers up to an HDTV, and it will still play broadcasts from them as clearly as the signal permits.

How to install tekken 5 with out the direct installer

Part Two

Why Net-Share? What are you exactly interested in, with specific dish alignment and some needing a larger disk to receive their signals crisp and clear without interferences. Usually there are groups you can join to get lists of signal coordinates to tune to, this also means an adjustable motorized programmable dish mount, eliminating the need to scan with your receiver, it works on a memorized data base something like your TV, but like Samsung witch picks from everything it is able to register as available signals which are available on your dish alignment. Some use multiple dishes with multiple heads to receive 500+ channels. There are some manufactures who also provide multi format, NTSC & PAL on a system with abilities to receive decoded freely locked filtered signals. These are pay premium stations and cinema movie broadcasts in HD digitally enhanced broadcasted for cable providers and Casinos, also 4 & 5 star hotels.

These are undetectable to any of the providers so far, but technology is always changing month to month, you never know when unless you have a detector which registers the pulse they send out in their signal which is receiving on a system unregistered.

So expand your search if your really interest in free reception of over 3000 plus stations, also to receive PAL , the receiver unit converts to NTSC so you can see the signal, otherwise all you’ll get is sound. This technology has been around for years, mainly the European market utilizing this technology due to the massive amount of entertainment available in NTSC. Now today it is not an issue, some foreign see fist run movies before the US market can, but generally it is one giant worldwide simultaneous release.

Have any questions just message me,

I used a disk cleaner because I kept getting a "No Disc" message after putting one in for recording. (same disc I had used previously that worked). It still reads no disc,then I put a recorded movie in and...

It sounds like the unit may be beginning to fail. DVDs are created in one of two ways - they are either burned (when you create one with the recorder) or they are stamped (most commercial DVDs are created from a master this way.) As the unit ages, the strength of the laser used to "read" the DVD begins to get weaker and weaker, eventually becoming too weak to read even the best DVDs. Not all commercial DVDs are created equally, which means some may have a deeper, neater pit pressed into the substrate making it possible for a weak signal to get reflected and read by the hardware (hence, you will experience the ability the read some commercial DVDs and not others.)

DVDs you create at home creates the "pits" by focusing the laser beam on a dye layer and causing a dye to change from translucent to opaque. Where the dye is translucent the laser beam is reflected back to the reader and where it is opaque, not. We get the 0 and 1 state that digital signals use to reproduce/transmit signals in this way.

You may be able to get the unit serviced and have the board that sends/receives the laser beam replaced - but that may be as expensive as buying a new unit, complete with warranty.

Model 6620l-cta I had cable and now I don't is it possible to watch this TV without cable. Is there anyway to switch it to a TV mode?

TV is no longer analog, it is digital, which means NO over the air broadcasting for your TV to receive. The ONLY way to receive a picture on this set is to have some sort of input being broadcast, via Direct TV, Cable, etc. You could always use it as a stand alone DVD monitor if you choose. I hope this helps.

1. Do I need any additional equipment to watch HDTV broadcasts on my HDTV-compatible TV?
In order to view over-the-air (OTA) HDTV broadcasts, you need to be within the reception area of a TV station broadcasting HDTV signals. Some TVs may require a set-top HDTV tuner and an external antenna to receive the broadcasts. Your cable or satellite provider may also offer HDTV channels as a part of their service, eliminating the need for a separate tuner. Please contact your local service provider to find out what kind of HDTV services they may offer.

2. What is CableCARD and how does it work?
HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card from your cable provider that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcasts without a bulky set-top cable box. Please call your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area.

HDMI, which stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface", is the consumer electronic industry's first connection capable of transmitting uncompressed digital audio/video signals. Components featuring HDMI can transmit both digital audio and video over one convenient cable, replacing the tangled mess that resides behind many home theater components. HDMI also offers improved quality over traditional analog connections thanks to all-digital transmission. Digital sources like DVDs and HDTV programming can now be transferred digitally from source to display without analog conversions that can degrade the original signal.

Unlike the HDMI interface, DVI only handles digital video. Through the use of an adapter, a DVI device can be connected to an HDMI device, but only video content can be transmitted. The audio signal would have to be transmitted through other methods such as analog RCA outputs or an optical digital output.

4. What's the difference between 720p and 1080i HDTV broadcasts? Does my CRT projection HDTV support both?
HDTV signals can be broadcast in either 720p and 1080i. It's up to the broadcaster which signal format to use, and both have their benefits. Our CRT projection HDTVs display 1080i signals in their native format. For 720p broadcasts, you can use the settings on your HDTV set-top tuner, cable box, or satellite tuner to convert a 720p signal into a 1080i signal that your TV can display.

btn_top_gold.gif spacer.gif line_gold.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif5. Why do I still see black bars on my widescreen TV when viewing certain widescreen DVDs and HDTV broadcasts?
Your widescreen TV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (1.78:1), which is the aspect ratio of HDTV. However, movies are filmed at several different aspect ratios, including 2.35:1. Also referred to as "scope", 2.35:1 is a very panoramic aspect ratio that provides a wide field of view in the theater. Scope is much wider than your widescreen TV, so it still requires the use of letterboxing ("black bars") to fit the entire image on screen. Some TVs and DVD players have a zoom function that allows you to blow up the image so it fills the screen, but the sides of the image must be cropped in order to do so.

6. What will 4:3 broadcasts and DVDs look like on a widescreen TV?
There are multiple settings for adjusting the appearance of 4:3 material on Panasonic widescreen TVs. It can be viewed with black bars on the sides, preserving the way it was originally intended to be viewed. Some viewers find the black bars distracting, so they might prefer one of the stretch modes that lets you fill the entire TV screen with the image. One such mode is the JUST (justify) mode, which stretches only the outer portion of the picture while leaving the center untouched.

Unusable Signal

I have exactly the same problem, with my RCA F27645. I can find no answers on the internet, so far.

I have 3 ideas.

1) The digital signal receiver must not be receiving the DVD signal properly.

2) Coaxial cable receiver (the little pin plug) problem

3) Digital TV (broadcasts) causing havoc on older TVs.
