Question about Emerson EWL20D6 Television

Digital tv not picking up digital signal??

Purchased 19" Emerson HDTV that was supposed to be digital tv ready, but when our tv station did the DTV test, the television failed. We had it hooked up to an outside antennae. Does this mean we will
have to use a converter box with the digital tuner on this tv???
If so, I am really disappointed to pay extra for a digital tv and it not work. Thanks

    We can pick up only two channels with our convertor box and we have an antenna that is probably thirty years old and works fine with the analog system. We also have a brand new set that is dtv ready. It's a 2008 model. Does this mean we won't be able to pick up the signal with a new set either? What can we do?



    We live in the Clintonville, Wisconsin area. It is 40 miles straight west of Green Bay, Wisconsin and about 40 miles north of Appleton, Wisconsin.

    We are also 3 hours north of Milwaukee. We are basically located in Northeastern Wisconsin.

According to the manufacturer, the EWL20D6 Television is not digital ready. If that is the case then you will have to use a converter box in order to receive the digital channels.

Emerson hdtv does not pick up any antenna signal


With digital OTA TV signals, a lot of things could cause you to fail to pick up a signal on any channel. First, do you have an indoor or outdoor antenna and how far are you from the transmitters for you local stations? Digital signals are either enough to for the tuner to interpret or you get no signal. Next check that the antenna is pointing at your stations' transmitters. Use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the direction for your location. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and provides a very conservative list of stations.

Check for buildings, hills or tall trees that might block the signal to your location.

If your antenna is providing a signal to several TVs, try a direct connection (taking out the splitter). You may need an amplified splitter to minimize the signal loss. Note: amplifiers (whether at the splitter or part of the antenna) can fail and become signal filters (blockers) instead. The direct connection tests this as well.

If another TV does pick up the signal from the antenna (at this point), then the tuner may have failed. It may also just be a weaker tuner compared to the other TV. Surges (for example, lightning strikes) can cause a tuner failure. In that case, you need a new tuner. (a stand-alone tuner like the converter boxes might work) or try a site like shopjimmy.com, searspartsdirect.com or partstore.com. SearsPartsDirect lists the tuner here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Emerson-Parts/Television-Parts/UTUNATSSP006/0057/528/Model-LC320EM9/0352/0333600?keySuffixId=NA&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=50034435&diagramPageId=00001&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=LC320EM9&subCompDesc=Lcd%20tv&brandDesc=EMERSON&modelDesc=LCD-TELEVISION&blt=11&shdMod= .

This TV was made by Funai so you may see other TVs that use the same part.

I hope this helps.

(I have two TVs with different quality tuners. With one, when the antenna shifts slightly out of place, I can lose the ability to tune in the channels from the closest transmitters. The other TV does not lose the signal until the antenna rotates more than 90 degrees from its usual position.)

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

Dose my tv (Hisense TL3000) is hd-tv ready


Not all units were fitted with the DTV tuner before the switch over occurred. you set should have an insignia that sates that it is DTV ready. if this insignia is not on the box or actual set, you will need a converter box to receive this DTV signal.

DTV Box


Dtv Ready Only Means That It Has A Cable Outlet On The Back They Are Gonna Need The Digital Box If They Wanna Continue Getting Antenna Stations.
