Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

Digital channels drop out, the signal strength always bad

Digital channels drop out, then the signal strength reports as bad, therefore unable to auto program. Or manual program. No aerial problem, our other digital tv is fine. We have recently replaced the mainboard, reprogrammed it and the channels were present for about 5 days, then a re-occurance of the problem.

SOURCE: tv has no signal

sounds like the EDID data has been corrupted in your main board. it can be reprogrammed but most techs will just replace the board. either way someone will have to come out and look at it. it should have a 2 year parts and labor warr on it. call LG cust service and get someone out there.

You need to press the button on the top right of the control ( the TV button) once and that will allow you to control the tv once again. Problem occurs when you accidently push VCR or DVD button which means remote control will try a different frequency to operate a VCR or DVD that isn't there. Hope this helps.

Why does my Westinghouse tv display "auto scan required" when it is on an outdoor digital antenae and there is no picture


Auto scan programs the channels. Auto scan detects the signal strength of the channel and adds the ones that you can watch.

Cannot change channel on my Dynex DX-L26-10a TV


Try checking the signal strength then run the scan again.
Checking the DTV signal strength
You can check the DTV signal strength to determine if you need to adjust your antenna or digital cable input. The higher the signal strength, the less likely you are to experience picture degradation.To check the DTV signal strength:
1.Press MENU. The on-screen menu opens.

2.Press < or > to highlight Channel, then press v. The Channel menu opens. The DTV signal strength is shown at the bottom of the menu.

3.Press EXIT to close the menu.

I have done an autotune on my sony bravia tv but am not getting channel 9 sbs. the television in the bedroom is a smaller digital tv and that picks up all the channels. the two tv's are connected


Is the splitter an amplified splitter or not? Have you tried the channel search when you connect the antenna directly to the TV? (Disconnect the cables from the splitter and use a coupler to join them together.) Tuners do vary in their sensitivity. For digital signals, your TV should report the signal strength. This is often under the Settings sub-menu. Some TVs will give this information in the Channel Edit option.

If the straight through connection gives a better signal, check your antenna direction and try a different splitter. Amplification will often help; however, when my amplified splitter was damaged the less sensitive tuner lost a number of channels that the other TV received. (Looking at the signal strength, one TV was getting adequate signal with one bar out of 8. The other needed at least 4 bars to process the signal.)

I hope this helps.

Sanyo mod dp19241-no pic 'Digital channel signal strength is low' is on screen


Hello
As the set reports, the strength of the digital signal it gets may be weak. An other possibility is the fault with its digital tuner itself. Check the digital signas strength first. You can contact your cable provider, and ask them to check the signal strength at your premises's cable end. If it found satisfactory, there is no other way than replacing the digital tuner of your TV.
It is a skilled work, and should be done either by any expereinced serivce technician or by the authorised service center for Sanyo at your town. OK.

I have a brand new technika tv 216/54g. It has freeview built in. I have a brand new indoor digital amplified aerial also technika but I cant get it to pick up any stations. Do I need anything else? please...


Hi there,

You don't necessarily need anything else, but you may not have a strong enough signal to pick up the digital/freeview channels using an indoor aerial. It could also be that the indoor aerial is not correctly aligned.

If the signal strength is lower than approx. 50%, the TV may detect them during the automatic channel scan but it wont store them. When the signal strength for any digital channel is 50% or lower it's more or less unwatchable - the picture would be constantly breaking-up or freezing and the audio drops out continually. Trying to scan for channels using an indoor aerial is rather hit and miss. Numerous attempts may be necessary before you get any channels.

Assuming you have a roof aerial, it is far easier to temporarily connect the TV to a fixed aerial point while you run the automatic channel scan. The TV will store all the channels and you can then move it to it's permanent location and connect the indoor aerial. You can then adjust the indoor aerial with the channels already stored until you find a location for the aerial where you have a good signal.

Doing it this way also eliminates the possibility of a fault with the TV and confirms that you are performing the channel scan correctly. If the TV is connected to a fixed aerial point and you are still unable to receive or store any channels, then it's likely that you are performing the channel scan incorrectly or there is a fault with the TV.

Please try scanning your channels using a known working fixed aerial point. If you are still unable
to receive any channels - or you don't have any fixed aerial points - please post back for further assistance.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
BElectric

Can't get the channels to enter into the channel list


A lot of the " auto channel scan " etc. need a certain signal strength. you could have too meny tvs,equipment or anything connected to the "signal giver" that is sucking the signal strength.Not just turn off ALL connections to signal but disconnect the antenna 'input' to any equipment (sometimes people connect cable wires to radio receivers for stronger & better signals.)
You could have a open circuit to the input of the equipment in trouble.If you know how to get inside (with out killing yourself) connect an antenna directly to the end of the line of the intanna input INSIDE of the TV. if the signal comes in and the tv 'autoscans' and locks channels, then you have a open wire leading into the circuit.
p.s. BE CAREFUL!!, IF YOU don't know how or what you are doing.........DON'T DO DAT !! [that]
