got the dv1402 wednesday last week. it broke 3 days after.
was watching a program in channel 2 when all of a sudden, the signal stopped along with all the other channels that ive scanned. ive tried re-scanning and was not able to pick up a single channel. placed the supplied antenna everywhere and re-scanned about 10 times but no good. hooked it up to an external UHF antenna and nothing. went to Taytay, Rizal(im from Angono) and hooked it up to a friends tv who also has the same unit and nothing. went back to Angono and tried it to my titas tv(shes in the rural area of the town) and nothing.
sent it back to SM Appliance for testing. they texted yesterday saying i need to get the unit back, take it home and call the suppliers(Search) tech support hotline for a documented troubleshooting but i told the manager that ive done everything thats on the manual and also added the other steps i did. she went back to the supplier and a few minutes later, was informed that the supplier will have my unit upgraded to DV1501 to ensure that i get better signal quality. the only downside is, i will have to shell out the price difference(roughly Php300).
im ok with that. sayang lang yung 1402 dahil its so small, its gonna be a great addition to the car.
