Question about Sylvania LC370SL8 37 in. LCD Television

2 Answers

Digital TV flunked the digital test

My mother has a Sylvania LCD digital TV. There was a test in this area for the digital switch over. She got the message: "you are not ready for the digital switch" meaning that her TV did not pass.

I'm thinking that the TV is set up for analog and that perhaps we need to switch it from analog to digital (there is something in the owner's manual regarding dolby digial). Am I on the right track?

She does not have cable-just a regular antenna but we were assured when she bought the TV that she would be able to use it when the switch to digital happens next February.

The news reported that that several people, despite having cable, satellite, or digital ready televisions still saw the failure test...some sort of glitch. It caused a great deal of confusion. If your mom's TV is digital ready, she is probably one of the many who saw the failure signal by mistake. I thought you didn't need a converter box in with digital ready TVs, but maybe you do. Definately call the manufacturer and ask...I think there's a deadline on the coupons for converter boxes, so definately check this quickly. Good luck.

You will most likely need a box to convert the signal from the antenna to digital . the problem is the signal not the tv

Cox Cable Remote wont program to my Sylvania LC320ss8 tv.


there are different codes for the devices that you are using. When you want to insert the code for the tv. > Switch tv on and then switch all the other devices off. Insert code. For digi box > switch on and all other devices off. Insert code for digibox. You must then switch between tv and digi box using the buttons on the top of the remote. Toggle between tv/ digi box.

Have a go with the codes below with the tv and the digibox both on, you never know you might get lucky as these are new codes, if not revert back to 1st solution.

Universal Codes (both should work using these, i think!!!!! try 'em)

002,
008,
155,
198,
227,
231

Here are the codes for the 1st solution.


Good Luck,

Hughie.

Want to Know if my TV is a DTV


it most probably is DTV ready, try googeling some on the subject, but since its a LCD tv from 2006 its most likely to made with a digital tuner. Note : if you have cable or satelite ( dish networks, Direct Tv and so on ) you are allready watching digital TV and do not need a converter box.

Don't know if it's digital transmission ready


If the set was made in the last 2 years it should have the digital tuner.

About Sylvania TV


Hi malumbender,
Your tv dosn't have a digital tuner, in order to recieve OTA (over the air) digital signals you will need a Digital Converter Box.
Here is a link to a government website for coupons for the box. The coupons are for $40 off the purchase price of the box. There is a waiting list but they will come available as other coupons expire.
https://www.dtv2009.gov/

here is another site for antenna and channel line up.

I hope this helps and please rate this solution, please keep in mind that a "Thanks For Trying" rating is negative.
