Hello You haven't given a clear problem post ebefore me. You have only give the model number and brand name of your TV only. Not give the model number of your RCA converter box. Yet i posts a solution to your problem, assuming that your RCA Converter box model number is " DTA 800B1 " The three digit setup codes for Orion TV with this RCA converter box are:
029, 189, 200 ok gopakumarg43
Yes,this tv is an analog tv,free air tv channels are all digital now.Tries walmart,Target stores,might still sell these digital converter boxes.Not,tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com they still sell these converter boxes.
If you are feeding the signal from your digital converter into the TV antenna input, I would input the converters signal to the TVs video input instead. I am assuming your converter has a video output signal and left & right audio so you will need cables for your audio also. If your converter has only rf output for the TV tuner input it is generally on either channel 3 or 4 and there may be a switch to set this. It is possible that when the TV scanned for channels the converter was off and it did not find a signal on 3 or 4. If you can get the TV to re-scan, be sure the converter is turned on and on an active channel. All your channel selection should be via the converter after that and the TV simply stays on 3 or 4. I would suggest looking in to getting the original remote. Try partstore.com and see if they have one for your model.
U have paid cable, u don't need the converter box.Not even the analog tv require the coverter box, if u have paid cable or satalite tv or telicom signal.All ur tvs is hook up to the Comcast Cable correct?That all u need not, require the converter box.
Looks like this television goes from $100-$200 on Craigslist. If your only looking for a cheap fix for a few years, I can assume you are in the right ballpark. It certainly wont have the movie style quality picture, but after all, it is better than paying $1,000.00 for an LCD. Remember, these televisions will most likely require the digital converter box come this Feb. if you want to watch regular channels w/o cable.
If you have the box hooked up to your 1996 combo turn or tune on channel 3 if the converter box is selected to channel 3 you should get all your digital reception from the box to your tv/vcr. Select what you want to watch or tape on the box, what you see on your tv will record to your vcr when you select record.
6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.
