SOURCE: initial hdmi tv, no signal received

If you are trying to get 'off the air' signals then you must scan for the new digital channels in your reception area (this info should be in your owners manual). If scanning doesn't find any signals, you might have to add a VHF/UHF line amplifier(s) between your antenna and the TV set or improve your outside antenna or the cable leading from it to your set. You might have to resort to subscribing to HD cable or satellite TV.

SOURCE: Dish Network "No Signal" Message on Screen..Standby Mode

austinbrooke,

I saw your post and I'm wondering if you are still having problems getting a picture on your TV. Is it TV 1 or TV 2? What type TV is connected? If it's a HD TV, you will need to go through your input or source list on the TV to find your picture on TV 1. TV 2 is generally on either channel 60 or 73. I hope this helps.

Not receiving signal


Do you have all connections hand tight? Are you getting an error message on the screen? What type of cable are you using to connect to the TV, Coax or RCA?


If you're not getting an error message what type of cable are you using? If it's a Coax Cable, you will want to make sure the TV is on channel 3 or 4. If you're using an RCA Cable, you will need to check the Input channel.

Thanks

The tv does not stay on when turned on goes off right away


This TV decided there is nothing of value to watch << Just kidding, could not resist...
Is there any message? If you do not have a signal to the port that the TV is set to, many will go into standby mode, but there is a message. This is a bigger problem with Blu Ray, as the machine takes forever to start up and there is no output signal during the start up, so that would cause the TV to go into standby mode (shut down).

Insignia 37" goes into standby mode


I am experimenting with Insignia's and there is a feature whereby if a signal is not detected the TV will switch to standby mode (in about 10 - 15 minutes). It's documented as a tiny "note" in the manual under "Understanding the basics - Turning TV on or off"

I don't know if the TV resumes when the signal is restored or if you need to power on manually.

You are probably experiencing a glitch with the signal or the TV thinking the signal is not there. Are you watching a clear picture when this happens? I would first check to see if the signal is too weak (like using a signal booster). If that is not the case, it's probably the TV acting up.

I hope this helps.

Is this

Sony tv problem


If you are connecting the dish receiver to the standard antenna jack (F connector) on the TV, then the TV must be in TV mode and tuned to channel 3. If you accidently change to another channel then you will get the "no signal" message. If this is the case then simply put the TV back on channel 3. If you are using the RCA jacks (red, white yellow) to connect the dish receiver to the TV, then the TV must be in the VIDEO mode to work properly. If you accidently put the TV in the TV mode, you will get the "no signal" message. If this is the case then simply press the TV/VIDEO button.
