Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

1 Answer

Digital to Analog Change Over

I have been through two different converter boxes in preparation for the Feb switch.  Neither of these boxes worked...no reception...yet without the box and a simple set of rabbit ears I was able to get several channels.  It was suggested to me that I check into the fact that maybe my TV is too old...??
So, if I'm hoping you might be able to lookup my model number and let me know if my set will not be compatible for the switch.
Model SY2549S Serial 621-22190951
I don't know the product code....I guessed below, but it is a 27" Made in May 1996

You are fine. if you do not get a pic or sound it could be that the rabbit ears you are using are not compatable with your box. you may need a diff. type of rabbit ears

I just received a tv from my church and it is a toshiba 27df46 27" tv. It says" please wait, thank you for your patience". I wait and nothing, Help please? Thanks.


The set is trying to auto program the available channels and it can't find any because since the change from analog to digital [FEB 2009] broadcasting requires a "converter box" to translate the digital signal back to analog. Check around and see if you can find a converter box. They were available for $20 with a coupon, maybe they still are. Try an electronics shop or dealer for that info.

No Audio with HDTV on Mitsubishi WS 55859; no problem w analog tv


Have had bad exprience with RCA converter boxes. The box will lose audio and has to be turned off and then back on. You may want to hit mute during this process, the volume varies from analog to DTV. If you have no problem with analog audio I would look into a different converter box.

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.

but here is the trick the convertor box are only for those who don't have cable or satellite service if you use only an antenna to get channels then yes you will need a converter box for each tv that uses only the antenna to get channels if you have satellite or cable service then they don't need a converter box even if they have basic cable they won't need the box there channels are already digital converting now there are a few events that was in anlog but there are being converted as best as possible but you may notice the difference in the pictures betwwen analog (usaully old time movies or show even commercials) Digital (most everything now that are new stuff are digital and even in hd now)...

Dtv converter box


You can plug your converter in and use it now. I still have a few related problems and questions about the impact the converter box has on my TV and other devices (DVD, VCR, etc.) but it does work and the picture is very good!

No, unless you are receiving over cable or satellite. You will need a DTV converter box if you are using an antenna to receive Over The Air television signals. The Proscan has an analog only tuner, so the ATSC (digital) signals will not be visible.
