Hds 10 gen 2 having trouble picking up location takes 20 to 30 minute to locate.

Aluminum will block a GPS signal, but the aluminum needs to be above the antenna and within approximately 12 inches or less.
the other major source of interference is the electromagnetic field of other electronics in close proximity to your GPS antenna. Typically within about 24"-30" or less in distance from the antenna. The internal antenna of the HD 10 is top dead center of the unit.
Turn the "WAAS" off on your unit and see if that improves reception.
Hope this info helps.

Emerson hdtv does not pick up any antenna signal

With digital OTA TV signals, a lot of things could cause you to fail to pick up a signal on any channel. First, do you have an indoor or outdoor antenna and how far are you from the transmitters for you local stations? Digital signals are either enough to for the tuner to interpret or you get no signal. Next check that the antenna is pointing at your stations' transmitters. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the direction for your location. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and provides a very conservative list of stations.

Check for buildings, hills or tall trees that might block the signal to your location.

If your antenna is providing a signal to several TVs, try a direct connection (taking out the splitter). You may need an amplified splitter to minimize the signal loss. Note: amplifiers (whether at the splitter or part of the antenna) can fail and become signal filters (blockers) instead. The direct connection tests this as well.

If another TV does pick up the signal from the antenna (at this point), then the tuner may have failed. It may also just be a weaker tuner compared to the other TV. Surges (for example, lightning strikes) can cause a tuner failure. In that case, you need a new tuner. (a stand-alone tuner like the converter boxes might work) or try a site like shopjimmy.com, searspartsdirect.com or partstore.com. SearsPartsDirect lists the tuner here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Emerson-Parts/Television-Parts/UTUNATSSP006/0057/528/Model-LC320EM9/0352/0333600?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=50034435&diagramPageId=00001&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=LC320EM9&subCompDesc=Lcd%20tv&brandDesc=EMERSON&modelDesc=LCD-TELEVISION&blt=11&shdMod= .

This TV was made by Funai so you may see other TVs that use the same part.

I hope this helps.

(I have two TVs with different quality tuners. With one, when the antenna shifts slightly out of place, I can lose the ability to tune in the channels from the closest transmitters. The other TV does not lose the signal until the antenna rotates more than 90 degrees from its usual position.)

No signal

If your gps says no signal, you need to check if all the connections on it are appropriate, once they are checked. Turn it off for some moment then turn it back on, if it still does not work, then you need to reset it. After resetting it should pick signal, and if that does not do the job, then it means there is a problem somewhere.
It is either the location you are there is no good satellite signal for the gps to pick signal, or your antenna is faulty, try to use another antenna to see if it works, if that works, then all you have to do is to replace the antenna, and if it does not help, then it means the problem is from the network around the location you are.

Hope this information worked for you.

My sat nav won't pick up any satelites

All GPS devices will need a clear view of the southern sky (in the northern hemisphere anyway) to obtain a "fix" or "lock" to display the location on the map.

A fix can usually be had in under a minute or two. The first time "out of the box" however, may require additional time to display the proper location on the display or output. If the device has built-in batteries, bring the device outdoors to an open area (no tree cover, tall buildings, etc.) and allow up to 10 - 15 minutes for the initial fix. If there are no batteries in the unit, extend the cord to allow the device to be outside the car - in a similar location described above (an open parking lot is very good), and allow 10 or 15 minutes to update the location.

GPS device require an open view to the satellites in the sky. Heavy tree cover, tall buildings, etc can cause significant problems for the GPS to obtain the info to determine its location. Some device provide a jack for connection of an external antenna input. These often have an amplifier built in, and can compensate for less than ideal conditions. Antennas with an amplifier built-in are called "active" antennas. Some vehicles may have a film on the windshield (usually a defroster) that can interfere with receiving the satellite signals. In this case, an external antenna would be a logical choice. When placed on the roof, or other location outside, it feeds the signals to the GPS in the car.

A low profile, active external GPS antenna. This will often outperform the one built-in to your GPS.

I have a Garmin Map76 that will no longer pick up any satellites. It acts like it is permanently stuck in the simulation mode.

This happens to be an older model and has the antenna on the opposite side of the Lanyard strap, so if you are holding it on your wrist, the antenna is facing towards the earth and not to open sky to pick up the minimum satellite signals. (The newer models have improved antenna & SW)

Garmin 330 wont locate satellites in van only.

Do you have a heat reflecting windscreen? These are a total barrier to GPS signals. It may be getting the odd satellite through the side windows if you have such a windscreen. An external antenna, such as the ones supplied by Gilsson.co, would be ideal but you need to have an external antenna socket on the GPS. Not many car units have this feature. Another option is to try a re-radiating antenna but I've not seen these for ages - bought my last ones from www.rnrplace.com

Cannot locate saltellite or Acquiring satellite

The error means it can't pick up valid GPS signals. In other words, bad reception.

Has the unit ever worked? Does the unit have an internal or external antenna? Are the batteries fully charged?

Try the unit outside with clear view of sky instead of in the car. This will give it the best chance of picking up a GPS signal.

If it still doesn't then suggest something broken inside.
