Trouble shooting 
1. Can not lock any program channel when auto scan.  

1.  Please check if there is SBTVD broad casting program in your area; 
2.  Please check if your signal condition is too weak, try to move the antenna around 

and re-scan, it is better to move the antenna near the window 

3.  Please check if you connect the antenna tightly

4.  Please check if you select right country in the Total Media software scaning function 


5.  Please try to use an outdoor antenna and scan once more.   

2. I do find some channels, but this time I get less channels than last time 
1.  Maybe you have changed antenna’s position or angle, try to find the better position and 

keep the antenna vertical 

2.  Bad weather can also affect your receiving signal quality. 
3.  In some new starting SBTVD broadcasting area, the provider of SBTVD broadcasting 

may change their broadcasting power


day by day, try to find the best power strength.   

4.  If you put a CAN of cola on the antenna, it will make signal weak, please move them 


3. When I watch program, Screen becomes black when playing or freezing on first 
Unfortunately, you are in a weak signal condition. You can see that from the Yellow light on 
the top of X8507. The reason is the same as question 2.   
4. Video plays but Audio fail   
Please check the sound card or the volume setting. 
5. Remote control does not work   
1. Check batteries in remote   
2. Check remote receiver: the light will be on when receiving, which means getting signal.   
3. Check if you are in 5m between the Remote Receiver and TV, don’t keep too far away. 
4. Please point to the receive window, that is to say, the angle of the receiving and sending 
is important
