Solution

First, we have to judge that the “No Signal” message comes from TV or decoder, if it comes from decoder we troubleshoot by step as follow:

Check if the signal cable is connected at the back of the decoder. There are two ports on the back of the decoder. “LNB in” is for satellite and “RF in” is for terrestrial.

Check the signal status on the decoder. Press [menu], and select “Setting”. Then select “signal status” to check if the signal is stable.

 Check if the dish or antenna is blocked/shifted position/cable is cut.

 Also, try switching OFF the decoder and switch ON again to see if the signal will be captured.
