SOURCE: tv not working

Can you confirm that you didn't have any input signal? My wife once accidentally pressed the reset button on the remote and the TV was stuck in this state. I tried to hook up an antenna to the digital antenna input and let the TV search for a channel. It did find a station and got out of the channel search mode, which was all I needed. Then, I unhook the antenna and continued to enjoy my DVD movie. I didn't check the manual. So, it's possible that there is a better solution. My TV was working fine and I think it just has a terrible user interface. I'm not sure about your TV's condition, though.

SOURCE: Visco LCD TV VSC-32V3 32

After connecting the cable to the TV, you should scan for channels. With the built-in cable QAM tuner, you should be fine with a scan for channels.

Try another TV to make sure that cable broadcasting is coming in...is there a set-top cable box involved?

SOURCE: Connecting antenna -- No Signal

Hi Shelly_Eddie,

Here are a couple of things to try:

Is the TV set to antenna or cable? Use the menu settings

Be sure a wire end is not bent outside of connection, i.e. coaxial cable wires sometimes bend or hide back into the sleeve.

Reset the TV and do a channel scan, unplug and see what happens.

Let me know how you make out. Good luck.

SOURCE: displays weak or no signal

To get any HDTV to work this is what you have to do;
CHANNEL section
1) Connect your antenna cable which you have done.
2) Go into the menu to the source option and select AIR/ANTENNA since you are using an antenna.
3) In the menu you will have to SCAN in the stations. This auto program will find all available stations.
Now you can watch tv by selecting the station you want.
The new generation of HDTV is different from the old analog sets. These have to be set up to work.
Exact information can be found in your Users Manual.

How do I get television channels do I need a antenna without cable?


Yes, you will need an antenna to get live OTA TV. The Haier HL42XR1 has an ATSC (digital OTA) tuner and a NTSC (analog OTA) tuner. Your location and distance to the local transmitters will determine what type of antenna will be best. See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com and enter your address. TVfool.com gives a full list of all stations you may be able to receive depending on your antenna (indoor, outdoor, height, direction). If you share the signal from the antenna with another device, you may need an amplifier to maintain the signal strength. (Warning, when amplifiers fail, the signal can become worse than the unamplified signal. With digital TV, signals are either strong enough for the tuner to understand or a "no signal" message will appear.)

I hope this helps.

Remove the back cover on your radio. The antenna connector is located on the right of the dock connector. Carefully resolder the connections. There are 2 pins (they lead to 3 contacts). Very easy repair, all you need it a fine tip soldering iron and some flux. You can get those for around $15 at wally world.

if you plug and unplug your antenna connection to the receiver a lot it loses the ground(shielded) line connection, if your lucky you can take a safety pin and CAREFULLY bend the radios 4 outer shell antenna contacts inward to make contact with the antenna connector, if its the plug on the antenna,try pushing wire in toward plug connection to the radio...delphi never had much for life on any external products that fit their XM radios but when you need repl parts boy are they waiting for you, and they got them

Initial gm-510 gps has intermittent gps signal and loose antenna


well a loose antenna can cause intermittent connections, but so can a low battery, despite it being plugged into a power source. Make sure battery is fully chatrged before use. I would suspect the battery chage first. Even get a new battery

My AM/FM Radio in my 2006 Ford Crown Vic does not receive a signal. I have power, but no signal, I've been told the wire has likely come loose in the trunk area. Where would the wire for the antenna be...


Your antenna is built into the rear window. You should be able to see the connection in the upper part of the trunk under the back window. If it isn't loose there, I suspect your antenna wire has come loose from the rear of your radio, or else the antenna wire is damaged somewhere in between the radio and the rear window. You'll have to pull it out and inspect it.

Tv problem


Mine (2005 vintage) is doing the same thing. Wiggling the connector at the rear of the set cures the issue. however, it must be a loose connection inside. How about soldering the connector?

Any other ideas on how best to handle the soldering of the connector inside the set?
