Hello, I have a GNSS receiver of Pentax model, when i switch it on, it powers on but does not receive any satellites, even the icon for satellites doesn't blink at all. Any help on this ?

I am guessing it is similar to this unit that mounts on a camera to provide time and location geotagging of pictures.

First, make sure you are not in a metal building (roof especially, but siding also) that would shield the satellite signals.  Then give it at least 20 minutes the first time in order for it to search for a satellite and download the table of orbits of all the satellites (ephemeris).
