Is the cable you are connecting working? That is, does it have a cable signal on it? It may be defective, or disconnected at some point (at a splitter in another room, for instance). Try the TV at a cable you know is working to verify the set, then figure out where the problem is with the cable.

MY NEW HAIER 7" TV SAYS "NO DATABASE"! AND WHEN


Hi there,

Don't throw it away just yet. It's still under warranty so returning it would be far better than throwing it away ;)

As you can tune the cable channels OK, I suspect there is a problem with the reception from the antenna and the signal strength is too low. Please can you answer the following simple questions so that I can help you to solve this problem

1. What antenna are you using - indoor/rabbit ears or outdoor/roof antenna?
2. Do you have a good reception on another TV connected to the same antenna ?

If you are using an indoor antenna, try moving the TV to another location to see if you can get a better reception.

Please let me know the answers to the above questions. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

I have Dish sattelite and it won't work with memorex under cabinet. They said I need a cable box in between the dish receiver and the tv. Why is this?


You need a receiver for each TV you want to receive the reception on. Your dish receives the broadcast signal from the network and your receiver decodes and recodes the signal to view on your TV. The companies have created their own proprietary equipment to accomplish this to keep anyone and everyone from simply installing their own dish and receiving all of their broadcast channels for FREE. In the olden days when satellite and cable TV was new, that is exactly what people did. Remember those gigantic dishes some people installed in their yards? They would intercept the signals coming from the satellites and hook up directly to their TVs. The companies got smart and started to scramble the signals going up to the satellites to make these home owner dishes obsolete. Because the signals are scrambled, you now need a receiver to un-scramble the signal. I hope this helps and good luck. Please remember to vote d368a18.jpg if you found this helpful. Thanks.

Digitial reception for casio 980


You won't. Because the unit isn't likely to have an coaxial external cable input, there is no simple way to achieve this. Full-size sets not equipped for digital signals can accept the down-converted signal from a converter box that receives the digital signal and converts it to NTSC standards for older sets. Direct reception of the new signal requires an ATSC tuner and there is no way to provide that for your hand-held. It would be possible to use the output of a converter box clipped onto the antenna of your Casio and see the channels the converter box can receive but your hand-held wouldn't be very portable anymore. Sorry-

I have a 13' Orion tv, model #TV1326BW with rabbit ear antenna. I have connected everything correctly to the converter box for digital signals. I can pick up all stations except the local CBS affliciate....


I have the same TV & cannot get into the TV menu to program the cable... it was bought secondhand without the original remote. There are no buttons anywhere on the TV itself to bring up the menu & the universal remote's menu option doesn't do it, either... how do I set the channels?

Channel numbers above 13 do not come in. This started after a power failure. All numbers are received on another TV at that site. How do I program the stations that should be received?


Go into the TV's setup screen and set the tuning mode for "cable" or "CATV". It got set back to "air" after the power failure. When set for off-air tuning, only channels 2 through 13 tune properly. Set for cable and rescan channels and you'll be set.

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna
