Question about Polaroid FLM-323B Television

Cannot get digital OTA with antenna to work

We hooked up our antenna cable to the HDTV input which should be the ASTC tuner. The proper menu comes up but when you try to go into the HDTV tab to get to the channel scan mode the screen just goes to all blue and it says "no signal". We should be able to get it set up without a converter box, at least that's what we thought when we bought it.

    To get dtv stations I have to use the other antenna jack for the HDTV tuner menu to come up for scanning the channels. When I go to the menu for the auto scan my screen turns plain blue and it says "no signal" and then my controls get locked up. I have to shut off the tv to operate again.

    It appears your tv is not functioning properly, Here are a couple of things to try.


    1. Use the buttons on the tv control panel to scan for channels, not the remote.

    2. Unplug the tv for an hour to allow reset then try the scan again.
    Let me know the results.

JVC HD-56G886 tuner stopped working


My (unfortunate) guess would be the Tuner received a static discharge when you were changing the antennas... this time of the year is bad for static - if you're in a "Winter" climate.

Receivers have a very sensitive FET or MMIC amplifier right inside from the antenna connection to make it better for picking up distant stations.

However, this same "sensitive" amplifier is also prone to being destroyed by even a small static discharge... especially if the tuner had its power turned ON.

Sad to say, it's likely toasted... :-(
(I hope I'm wrong... but you have already tried all other possible solutions)

The DTV input in my GV46L stays black. Why?


You don't say what you are trying to input but take note that your model does not have a digital tuner on the DTV input. If you use a digital OTA antenna, the signal must first go through a digital converter or tuner before it goes into the DTV input. The DTV/ANT input is only cable ready. There is no digital tuner in the TV to activate the DTV menu.

Cable in my area has switched to digital cable. I own a Hitachi HDTV about four years old. When I scan my channels it will only scan analog channels...the digital channels are an option but I don't...


Unfortunately, you need a set-top box. The Hitachi 65F59 has an ATSC (digital OTA) and NTSC (analog) tuner. It doesn't have a clear-QAM (unencrypted digital cable) tuner.

There are a few DVR set-top boxes with QAM tuners that you can buy separately. (You will need to make sure a given model is compatible with your service. FIOS uses a different option on the Cable Card than other providers.) Alternatively, you can get a cable box from your company.

Retrevo has the manual for this Hitachi TV here: http://www.retrevo.com/support/Hitachi-65F59-TVs-manual/id/371ci977/t/2/ . You will need to enter a code to access the PDF.

If you want OTA HD, you will need to determine the correct antenna for your area and the direction to the transmitters. (External antennas pick up more stations. In some areas amplification may be needed to get a good signal.) See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for searches on the appropriate antenna to get a signal and where to point the antenna. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna but is very conservative in the received channel list. You would need to set the TV signal input to Air and rescan for channels if you choose to go with the OTA signal.

I wish that I had better news for you.

I have a 2 tuner tv. When Cablevision installed my digital cable box, I lost the 2 tuner capability. Is there a special way it needs to be hooked up to get back the 2 tuner capability?


Your cable system is probably QAM (digital cable). The tuners built into the TV are analog and digital OTA tuners (ATSC and NTSC). If you connect the Cablevision box to the component video input (and connect the audio out of the box to the appropriate audio in) on the TV and an appropriate antenna to the coax (antenna) input, you will be able to swap use the tuners in the TV. (See tvfool.com for antenna types and direction or antennaweb.org for directions of the most likely stations to be received at your location. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is conservative in the list it provides.)

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(please note, you probably need to get the component video cables. These have 3 RCA plugs on each end (red, green and blue). To carry the audio you need a cable with 2 RCA plugs on each end (red and white). Match the colors as you connect them.)

Is this system set up with a converter to run off and external roof-top antenna or does it need a digital converter box?


This model will require a digital converter box to receive the digital OTA channels since it has an NTSC instead of an ASTC tuner.

Not able to scan for digital OTA channels on a JVC LT-32X667 LCD


Seeing as it does not have a digital tuner in it, I would think this would be the problem, you will have to get a box for it.

That model has an additional ASTC DTV tuner. Plug into the HDTV co-ax input from the DTV antenna.

Your TV is an "HD-Ready" television. What this means is that your TV is ready to accept HD input from an outside source, but doesn't have the ability to produce the content itself. It is a monitor and does not have a digital tuner. Without a digital tuner (or for cable a QAM tuner) you will not receive OTA broadcast HD.

You need to purchase a High Definition capable set-top converter box. The converter box will have HD component out and may have HDMI out, either will feed your HD Ready TV.

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.
