Question about Portable Televisions

1 Answer

Emerson Television I hooked up my Emerson Television and it says "No Signals" I have DTV hooked up to it. The box is on and running and all over televisions in the house are working fine. I have even done the channel search but I am still getting "No Signals." The television has worked fine and I have not had any problems with it at all until now. I have made sure all the connections are there and everything, I even double checked the other DTVs in the house to make sure I have hooked everything up correctly and everything is fine.

With a cable or DTV converter box hooked up, the only channel the TV will find is channel 3 or 4 (depending on how the box is set). Make sure the set is on the right channel and you should be OK. Also make sure the cable is good. If you have several TV's connected to the same source you might have a bad cable or splitter somewhere in the chain. Hope this helps!

Cant find a signal to get channels on portable tv


Is this TV digital ready? if not you will need a converter box for the new digital signal that the government reguired this past summer. It should work if hooked to a cable box or sat reciever but without the converter box you can no longer recieve signals through the air.

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?

I am unable to tune in my mother- in- laws Sony Trinitron television Model KV-M14u as she has mislaid the operating manual when she moved down from Manchester. We have the remote but not the instructions...


Most Trinitrons use the menu button on the remote to set up funtions.Chanel Line Up, or set up chanels is under one of the funtions.Be advised that here in the US the switch to DTV requires that you have a DTV Tunner to receive over the air Broadcasts,Analog tuners no longer receive chanels(you need a converter box and anntena,Cable/Sat work fine.If this is an older model you need box.Try to get into menu,setup,chanels.Good Luck.

DTV transition


Hello,

I know what you are asking for but as of yet there are only the converter boxes that are for non-mountable TVs. What you could do is to install the converter box someplace else in the kitchen or wherever you have extra space and run a cable from the box to the TV, and install the antenna on the converter box. I have used this configuration for some people who have under cabinet TVs.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

How to convert the J53 BW to receive digital broadcast signals


Certainly you can use your TV!

The converter box needs an antenna so it can tune the channels, but it doesn't have to be the antenna that's built into the TV. In fact, you'll get better reception if you use an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts. Several types are available at stores where they sell TVs, and they start at under $10.

Then you'll need to connect the converter box output to the TV so you can tune it in on channel 3 or 4. I'm not familiar with your Jensen set, but I've never seen a TV without some kind of connector for an external antenna. The most common type on small TV's is a jack similar to an earphone jack. Radio Shack sells an adapter that plugs in and allows you to connect the cable from the converter box. Take the set with you if necessary so you can find what you need.

DTV hookup for an RCA XL-100


Try the $40 RCA DTV Tuner/Converter from Wal-Mart. Connect your existing VHF/UHF antenna (if you don't have one, Wal-Mart sells them too) to the antenna input on the back of the converter and the converter to the antenna input on the back of the TV. If it has only twin lead antenna inputs instead of the standard coaxial type, you'll need a simple twin-lead/coaxial connector, which is about $5. Tune to VHF channel 3 or 4 (set your converter switch correspondingly), turn on the conveter box and follow the onscreen instructions. If you see static, use the automatic or manual fine tune control until you see a clear picture of the menu screen.
