If you are comfortable doing some small repair work, you might be able to fix this with stuff you have laying around.

All you need is:
1 - 8" piece of coaxial cable with male connector on one end
1 - set of RCA cables (Red/White/Yellow)
1 - coaxial coupler
2 - small wire nuts

electrical tape

Take the back housing off of your TV. You may have to unscrew the small nut holding the threaded connector to the TV. This threaded connector should connect to the motherboard with a male RCA prong that should be soldered to the component on the motherboard. You will need to carefully cut
& remove the old soldering & wiggle the connector off. This is the hardest part, but it WILL come off with a little trying.

Now get your coax cable and strip off about 2" of the black outside housing ONLY. Your solid copper` interior cable should be protected by a small plastic coating which is covered in braided wire. You'll need to be careful not to cut the braiding off. Untangle the braiding down to where your cut stops and try and get it all on one side of the cable so you can twist it all together and make a nice wire. Now strip about an inch off of your interior plastic sheathing to reveal the small solid copper wire on the very inside.

Get your RCA cable and cut about 6" off of the one yellow side. Follow the same process above to get a braided sheathing wire and a solid copper wire. Attach this yellow wire to the coaxial cable by twisting the two braided wires together and the two solid copper wires together. Use your wire nuts & electrical tape to secure your connections making sure none of the wires can touch each other.

Connect the yellow cable's male prong into the component on the motherboard and attach your coaxial coupler to the male end of your coaxial cable. If you saved the small nut from earlier, you can re-attach this new coupler to the housing on your TV. Screw your housing back on the TV and you should be good to go.

Yes it is,but the thing is that you have to disasemble the tv, so that the only problem
i believe if you open it and be very carefull and take out the tuner board, you can fix it, just need a couple of tools like: screwdrivers, soldering iron, some solder wire from radio shack. just take your time and do not try to rush it.

good luck

Tv has started blueing out lower channels of cable 6,7,8. Called cable co they came and rewired still doing channels try to come in sometimes do and them turn blue sound is there. Is TV dieing?


Hello. It sounds like the signal strength is low. This could be caused by using an older coaxial cable between the wall and the TV or a loose connection. If all of that is okay, since the TV is refurbished, the Main PCB could be going bad.

Televison station won't scan


If you are receiving a "No Signal" error message, verify that:
  1. All of the cables physically connected to the TV and the input device are secure.
  2. The input device is turned on.
Your TV needs to scan for channels before it can show programming from an antenna, from cable TV when the cable comes directly from the wall (no cable box), or from a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with a coaxial (RF) cable. Do not scan for channels if you have a cable or satellite box connected using AV (Composite), Component, or HDMI cables. The box selects the channel, not the tuner inside your television. If you are not using the "TV" input, press the INPUT button on your remote until the correct input mode is selected.
To perform a channel scan using the coaxial input:
  1. Press the INPUT button on your remote to view your current input source. The TV (coaxial cable) input must be selected. This may appear as "TV," "ANT," or the channel and call letters of a station.
  2. If the TV input is not selected, press INPUT until the TV input mode is selected.
  3. Open the on-screen menu and select TV or Tuner option. (This varies by model.)
  4. Highlight Tuner Mode and select the correct option:
    • Antenna-over-the air signals from an antenna
    • Cable-direct from the wall cable TV, or a cable or satellite box connected to the TV with coaxial cable
  5. Select Auto Search or Auto Channel Scan. (This varies by model.)
  6. When the search reaches 100% complete, exit to the menu.
  7. Check the available channels:
    • Antenna or direct-from-wall cable-Press the Channel Up and Channel Down buttons on your VIZIO TV remote to view the available channels.
    • Cable or satellite box- Will return only one channel. Use the cable or satellite remote's Channel Up and Channel Down buttons.
If this does not resolve the issue, power cycle the TV and then re-run the channel scan:
  1. Turn off the TV.
  2. Unplug the TV from the electrical outlet.
  3. While the TV is unplugged from the wall, press and hold the Power button on the TV for 30 seconds.
  4. Release the power button.
  5. Plug the TV back into the electrical outlet.
  6. Turn on the TV.
Note: There is also an option to reset the TV to the factory default settings. This option is in either the SETUP or SYSTEM section of the on-screen menu. The option may be "Reset all settings", "System Reset," or "Reset & Admin." Consult your TV's user manual for the location and steps for resetting your model.
  1. Remove the coaxial cable from the DTV/TV connector on the back of your television and perform a channel scan to clear the existing channels. See the procedure above. This should not find any channels.
  2. Re-attach the coaxial cable to the DTV/TV connector and perform a new channel scan.

How to connect a philips antenna to a trutech tv


Unplug your television and turn the set around so the back of the set is facing you.

  • 2 Disconnect the antenna or cable connection from the television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port if it is connected.
  • 3 Examine your splitter and notice one end of the device has a coaxial port while the other end has two coaxial ports.
  • 4 Plug the coaxial end of the television antenna into one of the two coaxial ports on the splitter.
  • 5 Plug the coaxial cable coming from the cable television connection outlet into the second coaxial port on the splitter. Use the port next to the one you used to plug the television antenna into.
  • 6 Place one end of a 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into the single coaxial port on the splitter.
  • 7 Plug the other end of the 2 foot piece of coaxial cable into your television's "VHF," "Antenna In" or similarly worded port.
  • 8 Plug in the television set and turn it around so the screen is facing you.
  • 9 Use your television's remote control to access the "Menu," "Setup" or similarly worded function. Or press the "Menu" or "Setup" button on the front of the television.
  • 10 Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function. Set the Input to "Cable" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available cable television channels.
  • 11 Select the "Channel Setup" or similarly worded function, then set the input to "Antenna" and perform an "Auto Scan" to locate all available broadcast channels. Your television will locate both broadcast and cable television channels.
  • 12 Scan the channels on your television to make sure all available channels have been found. If you are missing any channels that you know you should have, manually program the channels into your television using the "Channel Setup," "Manual Channel Setup" or similarly worded function.

    I get a weak or no signal message on my new Samsung plasma. I'm using coaxial to my cable box. The cable works fine because I can see the vcr when it plays. I have it set to cable on the right channel...


    In this case, your VCR becomes the cable channels tuning device for your TV, the better connection should be from your cable box output to your antenna/cable TV input with the coaxial cable, surely, your TV has a better cable tuner than your VCR, to connect the VCR to TV you can use its AV outputs to an available AV inputs of your TV, you can get a better sound and picture in this way.

    I am having trouble connecting dvr to dvdvcr to older tv


    This can get tricky sometimes. It depends if you're connected the DVR to the tv via RCA cables or coaxial cables. For coaxial, connect from the TV's in to the DVD/VCR combo out. Coaxial from your DVD/VCR in to your DVR out. set your VCR/DVD to channel 3/4 depending on your manufacture as well as your tv. If this doesn't work, usually your tv provider may be able to help you out.

    1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the coaxial connectors.
    2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.

    The coaxial cable connection into the TV loose so the picture is snowy. How can I fix it?


    You do need to buy good coaxial cables at a reputable electronics store. You may sometimes use the slide in one with some luck. I prefer a high quality cable purchase at the cable or satellite tv office. The other thing is you may have too many connections going into the tv. You may a dvd or vcr player that is still on. Or the video game box is on etc. Or worse yet...the RF connector on the tv itself is loose and will require a new soldered one in its place...this will require a tv tech! Or the quik fix is to bypass the RF connector and use the RCA cables and Jacks. Hate to leave you with so many options...but most is covered now...good luck!

    I have the tv and i have the cable channels but they r fuzzy


    Do you have a vcr/dvd player connected to this tv? Make sure it is off. Do you have a cable box? Make sure your TV is on channel 3 or 4 and the same for the cable/satelitte box. Make sure you have good grounds on your cables and rca jacks. Should be easy to correct this.

    Philips LCD 17PF8946/37 TV not working


    The good news is that the "No Input Signal" message means that your TV is not broken. If you are trying to watch cable, then you have simply turned the TV to the wrong input channel. If your cable comes into the Philips using a coaxial cable wire, use the Philips remote to change the channel to Ch.3 or 4 - whichever channel you normally watch cable on. Make sure the cable box is turned on if you have a cable box. If the cable box connects to the TV using another type of wire, use the Ch+/- on the Philips remote and go through all the AV channels until you find the right one. Good luck! Let me know if you need additional help.
