Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

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 labeled UHF. I am using a 75 ohm coax to 300 ohm adapter to connect to the UHF terminals and it does work but I was wondering if I could get a better picture by using one of the 3 coax connectors. The only pfoblem is I don't know which of the coax connectors to use.

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!

My rooftop antenna has stopped receiving television signals. It happened after a severe electrical storm. Is there any way to repair it or even to determine what the problem is?


it is due to the disturbance of the wirres passig the signals a proper technician can definately clear the problem for you if you yourself want to try this is the option


You could always try an attic install if it doesn't work all you have to do is run the coax from the attic to the outside loacation.

I've got a attic antenna. I get 85-99% on all channels..

If that's vinyl sidding you can hide the cabling under it buy using a unzipping tool.

You can buy coaxial cable with gound wire attached. Just make sure you use a ground block if you don't the electricity may go down the coax.

Why all my cables channels not working


if you are using coax cable to conn cable box to tv, be sure to use the analog ant conn on back of tv, and there is a switch on the back of the tv for selecting channel 3 or 4, for cable box use. be sure to turn tv to the same channel the switch is selected to, and always use the cable box to change channels/ programs, not the tv channel selector.

HDTV Converter hookup with sat. and antenna


Hi there Phil...... this switch from analog to digital has lots of folks scratching their heads. Fortunately I have some great news for you. The signal coming from the Dish network does not need a converter as it is already digital.

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.

depends on alot. if the tuner has become damaged then it will have to be replaced.. the signal line may have become grounded to the outside of tuner and this is why the set is shuting down... if all is good a tech can resolder the connector. i have done many not easy but can be done.

No recption pass channel 12


judging by the year, this set should definitely be cable ready. check the front of the tv if it has a control panel for a switch that says catv/normal or something similar, if it does not have that switch, check the settings via the remote.

the channel a connector may require an adapter depending on the type of connector. i had an old tv that required an adapter in order to plug the cable coax into it, it resembled an rca connector and is used on some older tv's in place of a screw on connector.

if all else fails, your cable company should be able to provide you with a tuner/converter for free or minimal charge.

i hope this helps,
