Freesat No Signal Being Received
Freesat No Signal being received? Yes. We know the frustrations that you are going through.
But before we go to the troubleshooting steps, let us know a basic thing first.
First, you should consider the weather in which we have no control. In case of heavy rain, wind, snow, fog or thunderstorms your Freesat box is bound not to receive signal.
This is because extreme weather conditions cause disturbances to the wavelength of signals and hence you face the issue.
If this is the case, you will have to wait till thing gets cleared as the Company has no control over this.
However, if you feel the sky is clearer and all things got cleared and even you face the no signal issue, let’s dive into the troubleshooting steps.
Follow these steps one by one and get your TV fixed quickly!
How to Fix Freesat No Signal
Before you think of contacting your support staff or pay a technician, you can do a couple of troubleshooting techniques to get your TV screen back to track.
This way you can save your time, money and after all, get a feel of techy side inside you too!
The troubleshooting methods are as follows:
Step #1. Check the Box
Yes, you heard it correct. We often forget basic things. It may happen that your box is not on or not connected to the power cord properly.
First, check if your Freesat box is on or not. It may be on “Standby mode” also. Check and make it correct.
Step #2. Validate the Connections
Check if all the connections are done correctly or not. Sometimes some wires or cables may get damaged.
Check for the damaged ones and got it replaced.
Also, check if the cable connector or HDMI cables connecting to TV and box are inserted properly.
# If you have an HD TV, check whether the HDMI cable from the box is connected to your TV properly or not.
# If you don’t have an HD TV, you need to verify the RCA cables connection. Make sure the cables are inserted in the right coloured boxes both in TV and box.
# If you have an IPTV, you must verify if the condition of the microfilter used to connect the TV from the box. Also, make sure the connection is not loose.
Step #3. Check the Dish Alignment
Due to heavy rain, winds, or snow the alignment of the dish may change to some extent. Then you will face the poor or no signal issue.
You can manually align the dish to the correct position by moving it slightly left and right and check-in in between if TV is back.
Remember this is no rocket science, and anyone can do it. Just make sure you do it precisely and someone near the TV to give you the right time to stop.
Step #4. Keep the Box Away from Wireless Equipment
Wireless equipment like baby monitors or cordless phones can sometimes disturb the signal strength.
Hence, if your box is near to any wireless devices, it is better to move away from them.
It is a good idea, to keep the box open not in a closed box and in a place where no other equipment except TV is there.
Step #5. Check TV Inputs
Check on your TV either you have pressed the correct TV input or not. Generally, Freeview can be seen in Video or AV mode.
Moreover, most of the TV remotes use a button labelled as “AV”, “SOURCE”, “INPUT”.
Press this button and select AV /HDMI or Video mode as per your box.
Step #6. Remove Obstructions
Obstructions can sometimes block your dish from getting the correct signals.
The obstructions include tall trees, constructions near your home, etc. You need to remove these obstructions to give your box an accurate signal.
If required, you may change the position of your dish to a different place. However, this may need a technician visit.
Step #7. Interference in The LNB
Due to prolonged use or if your dish gets covered with snow or any other weather conditions, the LNB may get damaged.
If this happens, you will get poor or no signal at all. Also, this can lead to missing channels in some cases too.
The best way to fix this issue is to get the LNB changed. If you feel your LNB is too old since the last charge, you can get it replaced immediately.
