Toshiba Tv - Does it have a digital tuner?


That unit has a NTSC tuner. May be HD Ready but it does not have a digital tuner. Unless you live quiet close to a local Broadcaster, rabbit ears would be useless.
The only way you would be able to get HD is using a HD Set Top Box, HD Satellite System,
or HD Cable BOX, using the Componet or HDMI inputs.
Hope this helps

Doubt about hitachi model 57f500


It is HDTV ready and supports the  1080i (HDTV) • 720p (HDTV) • 480p (EDTV) • 480i (SDTV) • 540p formats.
You can download the manual from: http://www.devicemanuals.com/downloadguide.php

There should be buttons on the front that allow you to access menus, etc. (They may be behind a door or panel.)

Main screen showing "no signal"


KP-43HT20 has 2 tuners, one is main (TU2) and 2nd is called sub tuner (TU1). Both tuners are mounted on A board located on right side of TV.
In my opinion, main tuner (TU2) is not working and causing No Signal message.
Let me know if you want to repair tv by yourself.to provide you more technical info.

Dtv ready?


Going to the following link will help you to find out if your television is DTV ready or not:

http://www.dtvtransition.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=51&Itemid=94

Using their online tool, select the Brand (Akai) and the Model from the list. If you cannot find your model in the list (which I was not able to for your television), they are saying that you most likely do not have a digital tuner.

All is not lost, however. As stated on the aforementioned site, you can consider one of the following options:

  • Purchase a digital-to-analog converter box that plugs into an existing television. The boxes, which are expected to cost between $40 - 70 will be available for purchase in 2008. Beginning in February 2008, U.S. households can request up to two coupons valued at $40 each. Each coupon can go toward the purchase of a single set-top converter box that will allow you to continue watching FREE "over-the-air" television on an analog set.
  • Subscribe to a cable, satellite or telecommunications service provider if all desired local broadcast stations are carried by that service.
  • Purchase a new television set with a built in digital tuner.

    Listed on the page is further information that may help you to determine the status of your TV:

  • Consult your owner's manual. If that's not possible, you may be able to look up information about your TV set on the manufacturer's website. Or, you can take an up-close look at your TV set. You are trying to find out if your set has an input connection labeled "digital input" or "ATSC" (for Advanced Television Systems Committee, which is developing the DTV format).
  • If you bought your TV set before 1998, it probably doesn't have a digital tuner at all. Almost every TV set made before 1998 was a traditional "analog" set that can't display digital TV signals without either a special converter or a cable TV connection. If you bought a big-screen, projection TV between 1998 and 2004, it's possible there's a built-in digital tuner inside. But chances aren't great. Only a limited percentage of projection TV sets (and generally only those 42 inches in diameter or larger) included digital tuners before 2004.
  • If you've purchased a new TV set since 2004, your chances of having a built-in digital tuner improve dramatically. Starting in 2004, many of the TV sets sold at popular electronics stores have featured digital tuners that will let you receive the new digital over-the-air broadcasts starting in February 2009. But be wary: It's not a sure thing. Even some of the newer TV sets are purely display monitors that lack the internal circuitry needed to pick up digital broadcasts. Usually these sets have been advertised as "HD-ready" or "HDTV monitor" sets. That means they can display digital and high-definition signals, but they need help getting those signals in the first place. You'll still need a special converter or a cable TV connection.

    We have a TV in our 2007 5th Wheel RV unit and we need to know if it's a digital TV. We did not receive any paperwork for the television. The model number is TVM1916F or possibly TVM1916E. Could you let...


    This unit has a 181 channel tuner and while I can't find anything that states it has a digital tuner, it sounds like it does. The easiest way to find out is to check the setup menu. If it has a digital tuner, it should give you the option to autoprogram the digital channels.

    Hope this helps,

    IF your model is the 55PW9363 those resistors should be 6.8 ohms like the other ones. i would put in the ones the service manual lists as those other resistors may have been close but burned out causing the ICs to be over worked.

    Digital or not digital


    this tv has no digital tuner built in to it. In order to recieve a digital broadcast the tuner must be atsc compliant. The best solution is to get a converter box to decode digital to analog signal.
