If your TV doesn’t receive signal but your devices are connected, it could be due to weather conditions or technical problems. It doesn’t matter what the reason, it can be frustrating to see the “no signal” error when you try to turn on your TV in order to catch your favorite movie or show.
The cable operator or streaming provider will display a “failure of receiving signal” notice if there is any heavy rain, snow, wind, or other weather conditions in your area. To allow the signal to return to normal, you will need to turn the device off for a few moments. Because satellite dishes today are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions, this is possible.
If the problem persists, and you are certain that the TV hardware is in good condition, it could be a problem with one of the connections. This guide will help you solve the problem of no signal without spending too much.
What is a “No-Signal” Situation?
Many TV manufacturers offer an auto-connection feature that detects the device and displays it on-screen upon turning on the remote. You may have a problem with network reception if your TV says there is no signal, even though it is connected to the same source and input as the cable box.
Try turning off your TV and waiting for it to restart. If the problem continues, you will need to troubleshoot each of the connections individually. It is a simple procedure.
If you are connecting a laptop/computer to the HDMI port on your TV, you must first disconnect.
How to fix a TV’s “No signal” when everything is plugged in
Turn off your gadget by plugging it into the power outlet. This is the receiver, recorder or TV to which your antenna cable is attached.
Connect all wires to the back of your TV box or TV. Make sure they are securely attached. Losing signal can be caused by loose cables. You can remove a signal booster if you don’t want it to be there. Instead, plug the antenna cable into your TV, recorder or receiver.
- Allow time for overheated devices to cool off.
- Turn on your TV, receiver/recorder box.
- Recalibrate your device. Tuning options can be found in the Settings or Menu menus. For more information, refer to your manual.
It is possible that the network needs to be maintained periodically, which could temporarily affect signal levels.
These are usually scheduled between midnight to 6 a.m., in order to avoid interference with your viewing. The Transmission Providers can provide information on all projects that could compromise the network status of your cable company.
Are the satellite dish and UHF aerial properly positioned?
It could have been moved by someone or something, such as high winds or fallen branches, or even high winds.
If you think you might need to adjust your satellite dish or antenna, We recommend that you contact the cable company that supplies your TV package to get assistance. This requires some expertise.
Does it seem possible that the wire or antenna is rusted?
Rain and humidity can cause damage to outdoor aerials, while normal wear and tear can cause damage to inside cables. Make sure that your aerials and wires are secure and free of rust.
Is the channel still on air?
You may not be able to receive TV signals if a TV station goes off-air. You can check if this is true by changing the station.
Restart your TV
These instructions will help you reset your TV and any other connected equipment.
- All other devices should be removed from the wall.
- Before proceeding, ensure that cables are securely and correctly in place. Wait 60 seconds.
- Turn on your TV box (not your TV set) by plugging in the cable and waiting for 60 seconds or until the lights stop flashing.
- Connect everything and then turn everything on.
Reception problems can be caused by:
- The UHF aerial is either not aligned properly or blocked.
- The satellite dish is not properly positioned or obscured.
- As a result, antenna sections can rust from constant exposure to harsh environments.
Faults in cabling or connectors such as:
- There are loose connections between the TV and the antenna cable.
- Product defect or misuse.
To verify that your device has the latest firmware updates, you might contact the manufacturer.
