    Hi, Thanks for your response. Would you be able to tell me the approximate estimate if I need to get the tuner/microprocessor replaced?

Is the PT50LC13 a digital TV? I didn't buy a converter box thinking that the TV didn't need one, but over time and unable to see any channel even with one, I wonder if the TV is indeed digital or not. I...


This tv only has an analog tuner (NTSC). That is why it works with cable and dvds. You will need a converter box to view OTA signals. (In addition, digital signals have a firm cut-off of signal strength; if the tuner doesn't get enough signal the channel will not be available.) So check with antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for details on the antenna direction for your area channels. antennaweb is very conservative in the channel listing it provides (even with the assumption of an external antenna). tvfool gives the color specifications of the antenna that should receive a given set of channels in your area.

The converter boxes are still available from select vendors but the government coupons program is not. Here's one that is listed as in stock: http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3150939&CAWELAID=198809366 . This is one of the standard definition output boxes. High Definition digital to analog converters also exist but are more expensive.

A cheap alternative may be to use a PC TV tuner (either USB or internal card) attached to the antenna and then output to the TV. This TV has a VGA port. (If you want to use component video in on the TV, you will need to check if your video card will support the non-RGB signal or a converter box for that.)

I wish that I could be of more help.

Hello,

1. If you are using the composite video output, double check that your antenna is connected to the converter's antenna input and not the output.

2. If you are in a remote area that gets signals through translators, there might not be any digital signals to receive.

Is the antenna connected to the input of the converter box? There should be a screw on connector on the back, the antenna connects there.

If you have the antenna connected properly, have set the conveter to scan for channels, and you were able to watch TV with the rabbit ears before you got the box, the box may be defective....!!


Thank you!!!

PLease post back for further assistance..

Hello rqromero2,

I found this on HP's website. I hope it helps

Picture quality problems (such as lines, fuzzy image, or wrong colors)Check the cables and connections:
  1. Make sure that cable connections are securely fastened to the connectors and try reaseating the connectors. If connecting a device using component cables, make sure all three color-coded cables are connected correctly into the corresponding connectors.
  2. Check the condition and length of the cables. Cables that are longer than 3 meters (10 feet), become more susceptible to promoting signal degredation (small dots "sparkling" on the screen and image ghosting). Cables that have been bent or pinched may also cause picture quality problems. Replace the cable or try a different cable type.
    Press the CH button to display a different channel. Picture quality problems on a single channel or on all channels may be caused by the TV station signal (antenna) or the cable signal source.
  3. Make sure that the image quality issue is not coming from your source signal.
    For example: if the image quality issues occur while viewing TV, switch the source to a DVD player to see if the image quality problems go away.
    If selecting a different input source (using the remote control) causes the problem to go away, troubleshoot the source device causing the problem - adjust aerial antennas, call the cable company for assistance, and .
    If a picture quality problem occurs on all sources, the TV or its settings may be the cause of the problem. NOTE: Higher resolution TVs will make it much easier to view signal problems coming from source signals - especially TV signals. For example, if your TV cable company experiences heavy load on their system, you may be able to detect small miscolored squares that briefly scatter across the screen (macro-blocking). On a smaller standard TV, this type of quality problem is much less noticeable on a standard TV, but can become very annoying when viewed with greater detail.
  4. Open OSD to adjust the picture:
    Press the Menu button to open the OSD. Select the Picture menu and adjust the image as needed. 
    If you cannot adjust the TV to fix the problem, reset the settings from the OSD to see if the problem goes away.
  5. Unplug the TV from its power source. With the power cord unplugged, press and hold the power button for five seconds. Turn on the TV. If the image quality problems still exists across all types of signal sources, the TV should be serviced.

If this dosent solve your problem, letus know and we will find another solution,

Just got an antenna to pick up local HDTV channels. I scan the channels and none are found. does it matter if I connect to "Ant1" or "Ant2"? neither seem to work. Thanks.


According to the user's manual on page 16, press Menu and open the Setup menu. Highlight Installation and press Enter. Open the Terrestrial menu and highlight Input Configuration. Select the ANT1 or ANT2 (whichever the antenna is connected to) and select input source Antenna [not cable]. Highlight Done and press enter. Now rescan your channels. If you still get nothing, try relocating your antenna to a better place. Digital TV is highly dependent on line of site signals. So if you are in a mountainous region or surrounded by a lot of high rise buildings, you may not receive a good enough signal to register channels on your TV.

go to menu settings, find add/delete channel or programming or tuning. There should be an option that says "autoprogram" select this option and let the program run thuroughly. It will read and install all available channels. Do make sure tv is set to CATV and that it is NOT set on AIR.

Broke the cable thingy in the back of tv now can only plug cable in air outlet but air outlet only gets a few channels is there any thing i can do to the tv for air to get more channels


The reason you are not able to get more channels is because the antenna port is an analog port and the cable was a digital one. If you have other inputs such as red/white/yellow or red/blue/green you can buy an RF modulator at most stores that will allow the cable to be connected to the modulator and convert the signal so it can be sent out using the red/white/yellow cables.

If this option is used you must know how to cycle through the tv inputs to receive the signal. Higher end models have a button on the remote or a screen in the menu to due this. Basic tv may require placing the tv into game mode as that is the only input source.

Hope this helps you and let me know if I can be of assistance again.

Weak Signal ..


Sounds like you have a bad tuner. The most likely cause on these RCA's is a loose RF antenna input connector. A bypass for now is if you have a VCR use it as the tuner and then connect it to the TV using the composite video inputs. If that faisl as well then you have a bad signal board.
