Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

No signal converter box.

\015 Hi,Tried to connect my converter box; no luck. Keep getting "no signal" message, so I can't program box. Some solutions I tried:1. Called customer service. We ran through hookup procedures, but unable to solve problem. Tech rep suggested that maybe no DTV signals being transmitted; not so, I'm located in Brooklyn, NY and a number of major broadcasters have been transmitted the DTV signal.2. Both box and TV set to channel 3. Simple hookup: antenna cable into box. Box cable out from box and into TV. Analog TV less than a year old with outstanding reception from building antenna3. Took box to neighbor in different building and attempted hook up on his TV. We worked on problem together, and still were greeted with "no signal" status.4. Took a trip to Best Buy, store I made purchase from, and found staff only had limited knowledge about box. One staff member recommended store make installation for a fee. Another said I probably got a defect unit and should exchange it.What else should I try? I'm about ready to return box and get an exchange. Help"\015

\015\012Anyway, don't exchange the box just yet! First, can you access the converter's menu? Because mine automatically comes up with the "no signal, call customer service" message, but I can access the menu fine -- so the hook-up is not the problem. If you can access the menu, let it autosearch for you, because mine can't be used until I do this. If you get the "weak antenna signal message", refer to the user manual to find out how to check your antenna signal strength; if it's in the weak range, you have to buy a better antenna, most likely from the official source: http://www.accessHD.tv

\015\012You can always exchange the box and repeat the process. Getting the "no signal" message is a good indicator that you've hooked everything up right, especially if it's accompanied by a customer service number. You can email me at [email protected] and I'll try to help you troubleshoot the problem if you like. I'm up all night.

Won't Boot Working fine for about a year and a half (bought in sept 2006). About a month ago it starting acting up. Power up, fan would spin, but that's all. It would not boot up. No beeps or sounds at all. Monitor displays no input signal. Hard booted it a few times and then, it booted up normally? Powered off, tried rebooting, no luck. 4 or 5 tries later it booted up again.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
