I bought an antenna at my local dollar store and have been satisfied since. I use mine in my office at a hospital, only for the television. I just cannot get cbs for some reason. try the converter box, which I will be purchasing soon.

No sound on one channel


If it's the only channel it seems it may be the channel that is being broadcasted.

I am receiving a no data base message


It says no data base because it has not found any channels that are acceptable.Not all areas of the country or the world would have the same base of channels so that is why it has none when first used.It needs to scan the air waves to build the data base for its current location,if you were to move or take the HLT71 on a trip you would have to do this again. Also unless you live in a highly populated area you will need to use an outdoor hdtv antenna as the that comes with it is not powerful enough.The TV is great but the digital technology used for broadcasting is just not that good yet. Good luck and I hope this helped.

I need a antenna that have a good strength to get more channels, right now i can only get a few channels


Tries websites like Amazon.com,Ebay.com to buy a Digital design antenna for a better strength longer ranges.But many of these antennas are design for mostly big tvs sit on a table tops.Just look for many of those digital design antenna choices,one of them will be snall enough and portable enough to carry with ur portable tv.

MY NEW HAIER 7" TV SAYS "NO DATABASE"! AND WHEN


Hi there,

Don't throw it away just yet. It's still under warranty so returning it would be far better than throwing it away ;)

As you can tune the cable channels OK, I suspect there is a problem with the reception from the antenna and the signal strength is too low. Please can you answer the following simple questions so that I can help you to solve this problem

1. What antenna are you using - indoor/rabbit ears or outdoor/roof antenna?
2. Do you have a good reception on another TV connected to the same antenna ?

If you are using an indoor antenna, try moving the TV to another location to see if you can get a better reception.

Please let me know the answers to the above questions. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

CAN NOT RECIEVE ANY CHANNELS JUST KEEP RECIEVING \...


First make sure the TV is in TV mode (press mode on the set, or TV/AV on the remote).
Once in TV mode, press MENU and use the navigation buttons (arrows and ENTER) to choose the set to factory default mode.
Also make sure you have a working signal by trying another TV on the antenna or cable coaxial wire.
If these steps do not work, call the Haier hotline listed in the manual: 1-877-337-3639

I have this same model TV and I use it with as


You probably need an RF (radio frquency) modulator to be connected between the cable and the TV. Connect the cable to the ANT IN on the RF modulator and then use the TO TV outlet OR the three RCA outlets (yellow video, red left audio channel, white right video channel) to connect to the Haier portable TV

I bought two such modulators made by TriQuest at a local surplus-type store (i.e. Big Lots) for about ten bucks each.

Incidentally the TriQuest unit also has an S-video output.

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna
