New dp 19648 sanyo hdtv no signal detected

Just got sanyo hdtv. no cables included. I do not have antenna or cable service. Just wanted to use my usual four channels. Plugged in, no picture. Used menu to search for signals, analog, one channel detected, however, just static. Do I have to buy an antenna? Do not have a roof antenna and do not want one.

You gotta have a way to get signal to the tv . If you don't want a outside antenna use rabbit ears .After you hook them up hide them behind the tv then do a channel scan. If you don't pick up all the stations set them on top and scan again or get satillite or cable hd boxes.

Can i use a digital converter on my Sanyo DP 42849


Sounds like you need a stronger antenna or to adjust your antenna. It's pointless to put a digital converter box on your tv as it already has the capabilities of reading digits signals built in.

Why is my TV saying no signal detected when it is in HDTV mode?


You either don't have an HDMI cable connected or it is not connected properly.

Fix tv picture


If the TV is receiving its signal from a cable TV box or DVR then you need to find out if the problem is in the TV or the cable box/DVR. Connect a different source to your TV such as a DVD or Blu-ray player and play a DVD movie. If the problem occurs again it suggests the TV needs repair. If the TV works OK when playing a DVD movie then that suggests that your cable box/DVR needs repair or replacement.
If your TV is receiving its signal directly from an antenna or cable outlet on the wall then you should try replacing the cable wire from the wall to the TV with a new wire. If that doesn't help then your TV probably needs repair or replacement.

Can't get the antenna to pick up the local channels


Hi Leslie, since you didn't disclose the brand or model name and number to the antenna you are using, I'll do my best to help you with your dilemma.

1.) double check your physical (wire) input connections
2.) make sure you have selected the proper input from you t.v.'s menu screen

HDTV aerial (outdoor mast) antennas are your best investment to receive free air wave digital transmissions...as opposed to the smaller indoor antennas...and the clarity is phenomenal; it cannot be matched by cable or satellite signals that compresses and decompresses the audio and video signal.

Why? Because, digital t.v signals are line-of-sight signals; meaning they need an unobstructed path between the sending source (t.v. station transmitter) tower and the receiving (home) antenna.

Hills, trees, walls, buildings, and any other obstruction- bends, deflects and weakens the signal as it is...placing an HDTV antenna in an attic weakens the signal by at least a 1/2...

So, if you are using an Indoor omnidirectional antenna at the set; the signal will be even weaker...it won't be good enough to pick up the digital signal that requires an accurate line-of-sight reception (just like satellite dishes.)

As a side note: I had an outdoor HDTV mast installed professionally; including signal filter and signal booster- [they'll know the proper type antenna to use for your area (see http://transition.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/dtvmaps/ for more details.)] And it was so worth it; whenever we have storms that knocks out cable power, we rely on the air-wave stations...and their sub-stations, lots of choices; and it's phenomenally clear...much clearer than cable or satellite signals can ever be.

As a matter-of-fact, we watch our local news and entertainment stations normally via our antenna rather than our cable service provider's system for that very reason of clarity and detail. Too bad we couldn't get the quality "pay for" stations that way, too - we'd drop our cable service and save a lot of money! :)

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Do I need an antena in order to use the new black box with my TV?


Yes, you need an antenna. Any set of rabbit ears will do. Don't pay extra for a "HDTV" antenna, there is no difference in the antenna for a digital or analog signal.

Sanyo HDTV 42"


'Clear' can mean different things-
The 'front end' of TV sets can differ greatly in the sensitivity of its tuner.  If you have 'snow,' then the new set is inferior to your previous one and you may need to buy an external broadband amplifier to boost the signal before it goes to the TV. The quality of antenna inputs has declined since there are fewer owners (by percentage) who depend on 'over the air' reception. Cable companies and satellite receivers supply a lot more signal than can your antenna so the input sensitivity is not as critical as it once was. 
The demo sets one sees at retailers are fed a lot of signal and have for that reason a better picture than you might find after getting a set home.

I purchased a SANYO-DP46848 42"HDTV. I have a Cable box and my cable provider (Time Warner Cable) provides free HD Channels. However.... I CANNOT PICKUP ANY HD CHANNELS ON THE NEW TV. WHY???...


I just got the same exact one, when it searches automatically the first time it doesn't look for digital channels. go to Menu>manual channel search>cable. it will look for all possible signals and will take forever probably. the free digital channels will take several seconds to switch channel to channel, but they're there! They will show up on your screen as "DC 91-2" or similar. you can switch back to regular cable channels with the input button, you just cycle through all the inputs. hope that helps.

You will need to use a converter box if you want to receive digital signals from an antenna as the tuner is not the ASTC (HDTV) type. Once you get a converter or cable box you can come out of it with component video cables and go into one of the inputs in the back of the set.
