Symptom
Possible Cause and remedies
The Satellite Receiver
gets extremely hot.
Check the placement of the Satellite Receiver. Place the
Satellite Receiver in a location with adequate
ventilation. Do not place the Satellite Receiver in a
cabinet or on a TV. If the heat is excessive, contact your
Sony dealer.
The Satellite Receiver
turns off and on by
itself.
This is often caused by static build up. Turn off the
Satellite Receiver and disconnect the AC Power Cord
from the power outlet. Then reconnect the AC Power
Cord to the power outlet and turn on the Satellite
Receiver. If this does not solve the problem, contact
your Sony dealer.
The Satellite Receiver
will not turn on.
Make sure the AC Power Cord is securely connected to
the Satellite Receiver and a power outlet.
The Satellite Receiver
will not connect to
the Internet after
receiving an upgrade

service.
Turn off the Satellite Receiver and disconnect the AC
Power Cord from the power outlet. Then reconnect the
AC Power Cord to the power outlet and turn on the
Satellite Receiver. You may need to repeat this
procedure to solve the problem.
The Message
Indicator light is not
working.
You can set your Satellite Receiver to check for
messages automatically. However, if you check for
messages yourself before the Satellite Receiver is set to
do so automatically, the Message Indicator may not
light until the Satellite Receiver checks again. You may
want to consider setting the Satellite Receiver to check
for mail when you usually are not connected.
Remote control or
keyboard is no longer
working.
Replace the batteries.
Try pressing the SAT FUNCTION button.
No channels are
viewable.

FCC Regulations and
Information

Your Satellite Receiver has been registered by the
Federal Communication Commission (FCC) as not
being harmful to the telephone network when
connected directly to the telephone lines. In order
to fully comply with the Rules of the FCC, the
following instructions should be read carefully and
followed completely where applicable:
FCC has established Rules which permit this
device to be directly connected to the telephone
network. Standardized jacks are used for these
connections. This equipment should not be used on
party lines or coin phones.
If this device is malfunctioning, it may also be
causing harm to the telephone network; this device
should be disconnected until the source of the
problem can be determined and until the repair has
been made. If this is not done, the telephone
company may temporarily disconnect service.
The telephone company may make changes in its
technical operations and procedures; if such
changes affect the compatibility or use of this
device, the telephone company is required to give
adequate notice of the changes. You will be advised
of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
If the telephone company requests information on
what equipment is connected to their lines, inform
them of:

connected.
b. The ringer equivalence number.
c. The USOC jack required.
d. The FCC Registration Number.
Items (b) and (d) are indicated on the label. The
Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is used to
determine how many devices can be connected to
your telephone line. In most areas, the sum of the
REN’s of all devices on any one line should not
exceed five (5). If too many devices are attached,
they may not ring properly.

Radio Interference Information
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful interference in a residential
installation. This equipment generates, uses and
can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not
installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference with
radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause
interference to radio or television reception (which
you can determine by turning the equipment off
and on), you are encouraged to try to correct the
interference by one or more of the following
measures:
Change the position of the Satellite Receiver with
respect to the radio or television equipment that is
receiving the interference.
Move the Satellite Receiver away from the
equipment that is receiving the interference.
Plug the Satellite Receiver into a different outlet so
that the Satellite Receiver and the equipment
receiving the interference are on different branch
circuits. Shielded cables and I/O cords must be
used for this equipment to comply with the
relevant FCC regulations. Changes or
modifications not expressly approved in writing by
Sony Electronics, Inc., void the user’s authority to
operate this equipment. If these measures do not
eliminate the interference, you should consult your
Satellite Receiver dealer or an experienced radio/
television technician for additional suggestions. In
addition, you may find the following booklet
prepared by the FCC helpful: “How to Identify and
Resolve Radio-TV Interference Problems.” This
booklet is available from the U.S. Government
Printing Office, Washington, D.C., 20402
