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.

If you see thus, check the antenna connection for firmness first. If it seem correct, the tuner to your set is faulty. Does not process the RF signal. There is no repair to this, other than replacement. Contact any service technician to replace it. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

You haven't enough information here. However, looking at your other posts I am assuming that you've got everything hooked up and can't get a signal. Most modern TVs need you to select from the menu a selection where you need to select the input type (either antenna or cable/dish). After making your selection there should be a scan option. This tunes the tuner to different frequencies and detects what channels have signals on them. So, you let it go through the scan and wait for it to finish. After it is finished, it should have programmed in the channels correctly. Then you can go back to default power on mode and hit the channel up button and watch the different channels. Good Luck.
u cant.......the antenna gets only over the air signals while the cable are actually wire transmitted signals meaning if its cable transmission u want u will have to consult the broadcast provider to hook u up with there particular signal cable to your tv thats what is called cable tv a reason ya antenna cant receive cable signals is compartibility
If you are using this TV with Cable connection, the strength of cable signal is low. Contact the cable operator and ask him to put a signal booster at your premises. If you are using it with On Air transmissions receiving, include an antenna signal booster at the mast of your yagi antenna on roof. OK
IF THIS IS A LCD---TURN ON, AS NORMAL AND HAVE A SIGNAL INPUT,,CABLE ,SATELLITE CONNECTED TO THE ANTENNA INPUT .MAKE SURE YOU HEAR SOUND.. HOLD A LIGHT (THE BRIGHTER THE BETTER) IN FRONT OF THE THE SCREEN ('BOUT 3 INCHES)--IF YOU SEE A DIM PICTURE---BAD SCREEN AND THATS BIG BUCKS---IF STILL NO PICTURE--CIRCUIT BOARDS AND USUALLY THATS BIG BUCKS!! GOOD LUCK
I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.
If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.
If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.
If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.
