    Get a taller antenna if it's an exterior antenna.

    Otherwise stop being cheap and get cable.

There are a couple of t hings to consider that will affect your picture. There is more info needed to be sure but I will point you in the right direction.

First, I suggest you go to and click on the button labeled "Choose and Antenna." It will ask your address and about tall buildings or trees around your home. A chart will be produced to give you an idea of what stations you can receive depending on the strength of antenna you attach to the HDTV set.

Second, as Tech Jenkins pointed out without much explanation is that it is possible you may need a better and/or taller antenna to receive the stations you want to watch. Use your preferences against the chart in step one above and this should get you in the right direction.

Last, to make things easier, the industry has adopted a color codification of antennas to help compare one to another. These are the same colors that show in your chart referenced in step one. Don't worry about whether an antenna is marked as "HD" or not because it doesn't matter. An antenna simply pulls the waves out of the air within the allowed video bandwidth and sends them down a wire.

Good luck on your endeavor.

I hooked up my new Proscan TV to the antenna but it can't find any channels

You need to check the connection is tight from the antenna and also on the back of the tv. You may need to try another coaxial cable. Is your antenna powered, meaning does it have a power plug that needs to be plugged in? Is your tv an old crt television? You may need a converter box to be able to view digital channels. A signal booster may help you get more channels.

Your tv or antenna may be defective. You could try your antenna on another tv. If your other tv gets a signal, your tv's tuner could be bad. If the other tv goes not get a signal either your antenna could be bad. I hope this helps narrow down your problem.

Hooked up to the antenna but can't find any channels.

You may need a converter box. If this is an old television, it probably lacks a digital tuner. Make sure the antenna has a good connection to the tv. You can usually find converter boxes at Walmart, Best Buy, or

If you are switching from cable, check into Netflix and Hulu. A Roku is a great device for cable cutters.

I pluged the cable line from the cable box into the"ant" section of the tv and it does not work? hooked RCA cables up and it work

Either the connector to the cable box or to the TV may not be hooked up properly.I am pretty sure you would have tried those over and over so either there is a problem with the cable box,or the antenna input connection on the TV.At least try disconnecting the cable from the box straight into your TV and check it,you should at least get basic cable stations as long as your cable is activated at least.If you do get basic cable,then the cable box is bad.If you do not get basic cable,either the cable is deactivated or the box is bad.If you are not sure how to get to cable TV options in your TV,you can try autoscan or please let me know and I will reply ASAP.Good luck!

Hitatchi 42HDF52 only receives channel 5 and 6 on analog RF input

If you have tried autoprogramming and have found nothing it may be a bad tuner. Is your VCR is hooked up via coax or into a video input? If it is hooked up via video and is working but the coax connection direct isnt it will be a bad TV tuner. Easiest cheapest fix is to use you VCR to change channels or get a Digital Cable Terminal from you cable provider and hook it into video or compnent.

Weak or no signal

you would need to know if the tuner is picking up analog signals in the air well( stick a wire a little bit in the tuner connection to see if channels pick up good or use an antenna , if so there should not be a problem with the cable being hooked up to it , if there is a problem even with an antenna then the tuner is bad and will need to be replaced , and the cable could have caused it to go out , but make sure that the tuner is working or not first.

To fix the problem, try turning off the TV and unplugging it from the outlet. Once unplugged, push the power button and hold it down for 1 minute. Then turn the TV back on and rescan for channels.

If the problem persists, contact LG customer service immediately as there is a problem with the memory card. The device is unable to retain scanned channels for immediate feedback.

All LG LCD automatically comes with a 1 year manufacturing warranty. You would have to provide proof of purchase to show when it was purchased. Hope this helps. The Guru
