Make sure that the middle "needle" is lining up with the hole. Sometimes they get bent off-center. If it is lining up, slowly, but firmly press it on while using a twising motion back and forth.
The connection is meant to be kind of tight, and may be more on a new connection that has not been used before.

All ready used box once. Now going back to antenna. Not receiving display or menu on T.V. screen.


All TV over the air is transmitted as a digital signal now. In order to see it on an older TV (read Analog), you must have a signal that you can receive(antenna hook up) and a digital to analog converter box. That box allows you to see your digital signal on older TVs. The signal is sent from the antenna to the box via a RF connection, and decoded to channel 3 or 4 (your choice). for further information see Consumer Report at:

Switch to a powered DTV antenna.
Your analog antenna may be too far out of range to effectively pick up signal.

Thanks for using FixYa!!

No Signal


Make sure you have a good connection from the antenna to the converter box. Set your TV to channel 3 or 4.
The converter won't improve reception in any way, and it's possible you might need to relocate your antenna or get an exterior antenna hooked up to improve the signal strength.
If you have enough antenna cable, and you're only using rabbit ears, hang them out the window or up on a curtain rod and see if that improves things.
Some people have good luck with the new digital style set-top antennas. I think you'll have best luck, though, with an old roof-top antenna that's set up to feed your converter.
Best of luck to you!

Lost installation instructions


First unplug your current antenna from your tv and plug it into the "Antenna In" coax port in the back of your converter box. Then take coax and run it from the only other coax place on your converter box back to where your antenna was previously hooked in on your tv. If after you run "scan" on your converter box it is saying " no signal " or "signal lost" or something along those lines, go to www.antennaweb.org to see what type of antenna will best fit your location then print it off and bring it to a local store that sells antennas, they should be able to direct you to the right one.

Do you need a special antenna to hook up a dtv digital to analog


You need a TV antenna, nothing special about it. Hook the antenna up to the converter box, the box up to the TV.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

Lost the Welcome/Installation Menu

All you have to do is use the auto tuning function. Your remote control has a menu button, you can get to the feature via the on-screen menu.

If you press the menu button while the box is on and you see no menu, change your television's input to match what the box's output is.

DTV converter box


Buy a hdtv antenna to autoscan program channels which should bring in a lot more then reconnect with the older antenna afterwards and if you're still not getting all the channels then each source needs a strong hdtv antenna that can be adjusted manually.
