Hi!
The Casio TV-880 has an analog tuner, and as such wont be able to receive and decode digital television transmissions. It won't work after February 2009 for American TV transmissions.
Hope this helps!

I only get 3 channels--and none of them I want! Does this TV only work with a cable attached? Which doesn't make it portable!


If you live in the US and the TV doesn't have the newer ATSC (digital) tuner, you're lucky to get 3 channels! The only analog broadcasts left in the US are "low power" & "translator" stations. The old NTSC analog tuners in TV's from just a few years back have little to tune since broadcasters have been moved and changed from analog to digital as directed by the FCC in 2009.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

No channels on either VHF or UHF settings


The news is not good, my friend.
The USA switched to digital broadcasts of TV signal around February 2009. Before that, all TV stations were transmitting analog signals. This TV has an analog tuner and is not able to receive digital broadcasts.
Unfortunately, this TV does not have any input jacks for coaxial cable, RCA cords, or even a plug for TV input. So you don't have any simple means to hook up to DVD players or videogames, or (most importantly) a digital-to-analog converter box. Basically, this TV has no value in the USA. If you take it to a country that still broadcasts NTSC analog signals over the air, though, you'll be in good shape. But if I'm on vacation in one of those places, the last thing I'm going to do is spend my time watching a teeny tiny television, you know?

Will a canadian tv work in the states on antennae? the new curtis 22" lc hdtv?


Three things you need to worry about:
The Frequency (Canada is 60Hz) same as in the US
The Voltage (Canada is 120V AC) US is 110V AC
The TV Standard (Canada is NTSC for analog & ATSC for digital) same as in the US.

Most new TVs are designed to operate, with 65V AC to 240V AC automatically.
To be sure about the voltage and frequency, read the label on the back of your TV.

Best of Luck

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-

Vhf is not picking up signal, no image


Well since all TV is now broadcast in High Definition that might be why you are no longer able to tune in a station. You will need the converter box.

Will my handheld tv work after feb


Hello lavillavicto,

Look at you owners manual if the tuner format is ATSC (digital standard) then it's ok, if it is NTSC (analog standard) then it will not work. My experience tells me that the answer to your question is no, because most of these units were made with NTSC tuners. I know this is not what you want to hear but it is the truth.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,
