Hi, I have a GPX Model TVP5 port. tv/am/fm combination. Radio plays, TV has no picture; has 10 "C" Batteries.It's portable. TV won't play. Why? what do I need to do?


Most everything is digital now. There are very few analog OTA stations left. If you do not have a analog station nearby then the t.v. will not pick anything up.

First of all, you can get a replacement antenna without too much difficulty. You will just have to match the diameter and tip. Yes the set will stop functioning once the cutover occurs in February 2009. At that time the broadcasts will be fully digital and the analog tuner in your unit will no longer work.

I only get 3 channels--and none of them I want! Does this TV only work with a cable attached? Which doesn't make it portable!


If you live in the US and the TV doesn't have the newer ATSC (digital) tuner, you're lucky to get 3 channels! The only analog broadcasts left in the US are "low power" & "translator" stations. The old NTSC analog tuners in TV's from just a few years back have little to tune since broadcasters have been moved and changed from analog to digital as directed by the FCC in 2009.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

No channels on either VHF or UHF settings


The news is not good, my friend.
The USA switched to digital broadcasts of TV signal around February 2009. Before that, all TV stations were transmitting analog signals. This TV has an analog tuner and is not able to receive digital broadcasts.
Unfortunately, this TV does not have any input jacks for coaxial cable, RCA cords, or even a plug for TV input. So you don't have any simple means to hook up to DVD players or videogames, or (most importantly) a digital-to-analog converter box. Basically, this TV has no value in the USA. If you take it to a country that still broadcasts NTSC analog signals over the air, though, you'll be in good shape. But if I'm on vacation in one of those places, the last thing I'm going to do is spend my time watching a teeny tiny television, you know?

Plugged in, cable connected, turned on, says "No Signal"


OTA signal? Check your antenna orientation and if there are any tall objects that would interfere with the signal. (See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for signal directions and distance to the station. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative with station information.) Scan for channels with Menu > > (right arrow twice) up or down to AutoScan and hit enter. Use add channels to include stations with the antenna in a new direction.

If you are using the built-in antenna, you may not get digital signals. Try an external antenna (see above sites). Digital signals are enough or zero.

This TV doesn't have a cable tuner so a set top box would be needed for cable stations, check the box directions for the station you need to tune the TV to access the signal.

I hope this helps.

Now that we have changed from analog tv to digital, will my old 980b 2" tv work? How can I rig it to receive signals?


Your TV will still pick up analog stations (less than 50,000 watts) but for most stations you will need a D/A converter, not very portable.

Is this portable tv have an ATSC or a NTSC tuner?


Hi!
The Casio TV-880 has an analog tuner, and as such wont be able to receive and decode digital television transmissions. It won't work after February 2009 for American TV transmissions.
Hope this helps!

Digital tuner adapter


All of us that own this pint-size tv will experience the same problem come Feb. 2009. The only solution is to purchase a digital tuner adapter and "adapt".
