DSTV Error Codes

DSTV error codes can be really worrying especially for new subscribers who do not know what they mean and how to correct them. However, this article will enlighten you more on what these error codes mean and how to erase them.

DSTV errors are caused by certain things like

  • weak or damaged cables;
  • smart card errors;
  • bad weather that causes a bad signal;
  • poor installation that causes glitch in the board.

The most well-known DSTV error code out there is probably E16. This code is the notice one gets when service is currently scrambled as they have not subscribed for a bouquet. Moreover, aside it being worrisome, it is not something any subscriber will want to pass through especially having to pay for their subscription and then it begins to give you issues.

There are ways to get this handled without stress and that is what this article will do for you, you will be guided effectivly on what to do.

More often than not, the major problem will be due to the error in the smart card placement or the decoder not effectively reading the smart card. Whichever way, it is advisable to first of all check your smartcard before going for further checks.

For starters, you can head over to DStv Eazy Self Service, scroll down to Fix Errors and input your error code. Note however that most of these codes are country specific, therefore you need to be weary of the code you send from your country.

 A number of issues are caused by wrong insertion of the DStv Smartcard

Back to the question of Error code E16, the biggest complaint witnessed frequently is the decoder remaining scrambled after you might have already subscribed for a bouquet. The advice is to make sure the decoder is switched on when paying for your bouquet to save yourself the hustle of calling customer care.

How to Fix Searching For Signal (E-48-32 error) on GOTv

The E48-32 error pops up and it’s really frustrating when you’re watching your favorite show. The first few time I saw this, I threatened to stop using GOTV because of the inconvenience. In reality, though, it was an easy fix, just check for a signal detection issue! You will get a lot of these errors in bad weather or during heavy winds–that’s something easily fixed on its own with some patience. When you see this error popup again after 3 minutes (or if its happening more than once), then make sure that there is not an underlying connection problem for cable TV by checking the strength of your signal.

How to check for GOTV signal strength

  • On your remote control, press the Menu button (in the lower left hand corner)
  • Then use the arrow buttons to navigate and select OK.
  • In the GOTV menu bar (by the left), select Advanced Options
  • Under Advanced, go to Signal Information
  • What you want to check is the Strength of your signal. If it’s below 70%, adjust the wire coming out of the antenna.
  • Press the Exit Button, To Return.

The error E48-32 is a result of poor positioning on the internal cable in my path. I managed to reduce its occurrence by packing it properly and shortening the length. This could also be caused by improper antenna placement, which causes this error only when there’s bad weather.
