Viewing Card Not Inserted Error

I am getting Viewing Card Not Inserted Error occasionally . It has happened 3 times now. When I switch on the stb it first shows Viewing Card deactivated. Then after couple of seconds the error changes to Viewing Card Not Inserted. Each time I remove VC from box and Reinsert couple of times then it will work for some days.

Any idea why this error is happening? VC is 4 years old but looks to be in perfect condition.

  1. no signal issue ,check viewing card issue so please only one original step my last post .

  2. @mulder And for changing signal rate, press on edit (blue) button it will automatically increment. Press it twice to increment to 30000.And wait for few seconds. Signals will be shown 🙂

    i checked now , for the above two tp’s. mine show the same as you 2%, 1% etc, i am not sure if there is any channel loss due to this.

    No channel loss is there, as MJ told it’s because the signal rate for those 2 TP’s are different.

  4. first step press menu ,select stb setting opition,select stb info and display stb number ,vc number if no display viewing card number check vc and reinsert and check showing vc number .show vc number your problem solve.

  5. i checked now , for the above two tp’s. mine show the same as you 2%, 1% etc, i am not sure if there is any channel loss due to this.

  6. Ok, anyway I need to adjust my dish it seems as the signals are quite low

  7. leave it for now, lets see by evening how many times more u will get those errors

    By the way I tried OTA but it failed. Should I change the default parameters while doing OTA?

    no need to change Home tp, it can be like what it is now at 12688 V 27500
    [/quote]

    Yes but it failed, I tried it via the forced upgrade option inside settings. Should I do it manually

  9. yes those tps only are wrong SR as per you ss

  10. [quote=’MJ786′ pid=’27628′ dateline=’1409642078′]
    those tps wont show u signal at this SR.. as it changed to 30000 and in your box it is old 27500… but while tuning it will do autotune so it will scan properly

    BTw, you press Blue button on remote and change that SR to 30000 for 11172, 12647 H tps
    [/quote]
    Oh ok, only those 2 tp Sr are changed? BTW the signal level for other tp improved only by 2-3 percent after the rain stopped completely.

    No signal for above two TP’s
    [/quote]

    And I am getting all channels from those two tp. Total 390 channels and still those 2 tp showing signal level of 2%

  15. For Asiasat it is between 75-85 and for ddd+ it’s between 65-75

  16. No signal for above two TP’s

    No, i checked it just now after the rain stopped 🙁
    [/quote]

    ok wait for some more time and see, if it dont increase then it is very low.. you need to adjust it..
    At this low signals.. how much is 12647 H coming? and what about DD tps and AS5 tps levels

    during rain this error might come , it comes to me also when low signals.

    It was paired , thats why you were able to watch channels.. but sometimes it misbehaves like this .. afterall its electronic box
    [/quote]

    Ah so it’s mostly because of low signals. My SS and SQ are pretty low I think.

    i also got this yesterday in one stb, works ok after a restart

    So I am not alone 😀 For me restart didn’t solve it.

  24. i also got this yesterday in one stb, works ok after a restart

  27. BTW it was not supposed to be paired instantly?

  28. Will try OTA, heavy rain here now. For Asiasat the signals were around 80 for nss6 I think it was somewhere around 60.

  29. that is why this issue is coming, try doing manual OTA and see.. How is signal levels for frequencies like 12688 V, 12595 V, H

  30. Yep it was paired instantly

  31. I think your VC is old but it is paired with New HD box right after you have upgraded?

  32. I have done that from first time itself bro . Again after couple of days the error pops up. Today it’s the 3rd time it’s happening. I again cleaned and inserted it. After trying couple of times it worked. But I am sure it will repeat again after few days. Actually I ignored this last two times thinking it would be some dust. But today it happened again 🙁

  33. just clean the chip and re-insert it bro.
