I am going to assume you have a Yagi antenna since you did not specify. There is a connection at the top of the antenna that sends the UHF and VHF down the wiring. This could be damaged. You also may need to repoint the antenna. www.antennaweb.org can assist with that matter. If you have another tv connected to the same antenna and it receives UHF then you may have a defective internal component on that particular set. Depending on your location an age of the set it may be cost prohibitive compared to purchasing a new set.
Hope that helps.

I'm wanting to drop my satellite service. Will my projection tv pick up stations with a digital antenna?


Sorry but I've never heard of a DIGITAL ANTENNA, ALL antennas are ANALOG NOT DIGITAL, and yes you will be able to tune in some TV stations if you live close enough of TV stations that still transmit ANALOG signals, with a GOOD VHF/UHF antenna you can have good reception and viable TV time... (best of all it's FREE)

Good Luck!

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHANGE MY TV TO CABLE OPTION RATHER THAN UHF OR VHF


Well let me ask some questions!
1) UHF and VHF are types of off air antenna source signals.
2) Cable TV has both the Analog 'UHF and VHF' signals on them along with the new Digital TV signal sources.
A) Is you TV have a Digital Tuner built into it or are you using a CABLE TV box to hook up to your TV?
Blessings always,

Vhf/uhf jack broken


You can try to attempt to solder it back on, but the metal is thick and hard to get it to stick with a solder iron..

Most likely you should get a new tuner, which depending on your expertise, may require a pro.

You can take your model number to www.partstore.com and search for your tuner and order it.

Otherwise look to spend between 200 to 275 bucks for a pro to do it.

My new TV is set for cable. I do not have cable, I have an anten


Sansui TV's come from the factory set for CABLE. If this is a HDLCDVD320, you will have to go into the menu to change the signal type to AIR, then run the automatic search to program in your channels. Their free customer service line is 800 289 0980.
I hope this helps.

I have an rca antenna model ant110. & i don't get where/how to connect the uhf part [round metal piece] the picture on line is not clear & we do not have the box it came in. thank you


You will need a Vhf/uhf combiner to attach to the antenna to new TV's. Check with your local TV repair shop, they should be readily available.

I have a Motorola Quasar TV and an outside UHF Antennae. I have coax coming from Ant. There are 3 coax connectors on the back and one pair of screw terminals for 300 ohm flat lead in cable that is...


You are losing a VERY small amount of signal using the transformer. It won't even be noticeable I'm sure if you switch to the coax in but the fewer connections you go through the less the chance of a bad connection. Use regular " Ant. In " coax connection or " RF in" whichever the wording is on the back of your set. Good Luck!

Recentlygot a DTA800B1 converter it was my understanding that they would work with any type of tv antenna??? cannot receive a signal and the old anaalog works perfect


It probably is working most of the new digital and HD over the air is broadcast in UHF band which is shorter range. Some people in my area cannot get a lot of digital staions whaic are the same stations in analog after installing their new convertor box. I suggest if you can get cable or satilite even a new set which a built in digital tuner may not receive anything over the air in certain areas Hate to tell you that but it is true

Antenna for my HDTV


Special HD or Digital antennas are not required to receive digital stations. A good VHF/UHF antenna should work. Try an amplified antenna for the best reception. Most antennas have a coax type connector which should connect to the ant. in jack on the back of your DirectTV box or to your tv depending how the box is connected to your tv.

I bought a 32" conia tv and i cant get good reception! i have bought a amplified antenna and a hd set top box and still no good reception. my other tv's in the smae spot have had no reception issues....


well it's the same as the days of old, the antenna has a range of reception. the further the sations antenna, the lager your antenna must be. just because you bought an amplified antenna does not mean you will receive the deep fringe station. also the antenna must be UHF and VHF to receive the broadcast in digital. most of the braodcasters have gone with the UHF band because it is more stable for the bandwith of digital broadcast. the UHF band is very directional as well, so you must be pointing to the broadcasters antenna. no set top antenna will work if you are further than 15 miles of the broadcasters antenna. the roof top UHF/VHF antenna with a preamp is the way to go. I have tested every compact antenna and unless you live in the city that the broadcast generates you will get no reception with these. terks are junk, and any small amplified antenna does not work if you are in low lying areas. roof top, roof top,.....ROOF TOP!!!!!

Mitsubishi Projection TV model WS-65513


Good Day;
The continues blinking 99.9 % of the time is four caps on your DM board. The caps are C9B01,C9B02,C9B10 and C9B11 they use 1000UHF the upgrade caps are 680 UHF- 35V. The board is on the very left hand side (from back).
I have performed this repair at least 50 times and it takes me still about 1.5 hours. If you are not handy and do not have a solder station, I would recommend that you call a factory authorized service dealer to perform this repair. With service call and ect. it will cost you around $550.00 and the repair can be done in the home, of course prices varies across the country.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish.
