Do you have a Tata Sky box to watch VODs and catch up on TV but are getting a “No Signal” error on the TV screen?
If Tata Sky shows a No Signal error, this can be due to the loose cable connection or the LNB being misaligned. To fix the issue, check the cable connection between your dish satellite and Tata Sky box or adjust the LNB to get maximum signal strength.
In this article, we’ll explore the common reasons leading to the signal issues on your Tata Sky box and discover a few ways to get the service back up and running again.
Why Has My Tata Sky Box Suddenly Say No Signal?
If your Tata Sky box throws a NO SIGNAL error during programming or right after you turn it on, the following can be the reasons for this issue.
- Rainy or cloudy weather
- Loose cable connections
- Incorrect saved configurations
- Tata service is down
- LNB is misaligned
- Outdated Tata Sky box
What Should I Do If My Tata Sky Box Is Not Receiving Signal?
If your Tata Sky box is not receiving signals, here are some of the solutions you can try.
Wait For The Sky To Clear Up
Bad weather, such as rain or cloudy sky, can scatter the signal causing them to bounce off of objects instead of going straight to your Tata Sky box. This can result in a weak connection and sometimes pixelation or freeze-ups.
Moreover, bad weather can also affect the signals by interfering with the line of sight between the satellite and your Tata Sky box, especially in a rural area.
Therefore, in this situation, wait for the sky to clear up, and the signals will return to normal afterward.
Check Loose Cables
A loose cable connection between your dish satellite and Tata Sky box can also cause sound issues and signal errors.
- First, unplug the Tata box from the power supply unit.
- Now, unplug the cables from your Tata Sky box.
- Plug the cable back into the Tata Sky box.
- Make sure the connection is tight and secure.
- Plug the Tata Sky box back into the wall socket and power it on.
Another solution is to adjust the LNB on the dish. To do this, go to “Settings” on your STB and open “System Settings.” Now, select “Signal Test” to see the signal strength and quality.
Next, turn your LNB until the “Tata Sky” text appears under the Lock icon on the Signal Test screen and adjust it to get maximum signal quality as well as strength.
If the problem persists, you might need to upgrade your dish satellite and purchase a new one.
Note: You can also use the SATFinder application to adjust the LNB and get better signal quality.
Upgrade from INSAT 4A to GSAT 10 Satellite
Since Tata Sky has upgraded its system and moved from INSAT 4A satellite to GSAT 10, they’ve also released a new firmware update for the HD and SD STBs to install new patches that can add GSAT 10 settings and parameters to Tata Sky boxes.
To install the new update, perform a master reset to resolve the Tata Sky box error 14 and signal issues.
- Go to “Settings.”
- Select “System Settings.”
- Choose “Master Reset” and press “OK” on the remote.
- Now, select “Yes, Go Ahead” to reset your Tata Sky set-top box to its default settings.
- Your Tata Sky box will restart after the reset.
If the master reset does not resolve your issue, you can set your Tata Sky box to previous Insat 4A settings through the hidden secret service menu (this solution is only for advanced users who have sufficient knowledge about the satellite parameters.)
- Select “Settings.”
- Head to “System Settings.”
- Now, press the 0 and 1 keys and press the “Select” button on the remote.
- You can now edit the satellite settings to apply the INSAT 4A on your Tata Sky Box.
You can also try aligning the Satellite dish yourself with the new satellite position, but it can be time-consuming. Therefore, call a dish satellite technician for further help.
