I have a Samsung tv, model # LN32A550P3FXZA. I've been trying to hook up an antenna but so far can't get good reception. Could the problem possibly by my tv tuner? Too old or bad?


Sounds like you're in the fringe area of the antenna. Depending on how far you are from the broadcast antenna, You may have to increase the length of the pole that antenna is on or get an antenna that has a greater range in miles. Digital signals are real picky about antenna aim. If you have a long cable between the antenna and the TV, you might try an inline amplifier.

I have a Sharp TV/DVD that has no remote and no menu button on the front or top wth the other buttons. How do I access the menu to scan for channels with a new digital antenna?


Without remote you are SOL .Most universal remotes are useless because they do not provide menu access. Your logitec Harmony remotes will do the deed however. Or you can purchase an original OEM remote for device.

Have lost all channel 2 stations


I assume you are having a problem with OTA channels. On some TVs, if a digital channel doesn't have enough signal strength, the channel list will get edited to exclude it. Have you checked that your antenna is pointed in the correct direction? My external antenna sometimes turns in high winds. Turning it back to the original direction improves the signal strength so that the tuner works. Then go into the Menu and find the Setup or Channels sub-menu to attempt to rescan for channels. (If you add a comment with the model of your TV, I may be able to give the specific sub-menu details for scanning for channels.)

If your antenna has an amplifier, try using the antenna without that amplifier. A few times, the amplifier/splitter attached to that external antenna has been damaged. Then the amplifier becomes a filter and blocks some channels. If you are far enough away from your local station's transmitter and can't receive the signal without the amplifier, replace it.

If another TV receives the stations, the problem is more likely to be the tuner for the TV itself. These can be damaged by a surge from the antenna. The solution is to get a set-top box with an ATSC tuner or replace the TV. Some sites may have replacement tuners (like shopjimmy.com that salvages parts from TVs with damaged screens); however I don't know if they'd have the part you'd need.

I hope this helps.

What antenna works on Toshiba 20VL43U? I purchased Mediasonic Homeworx HW110AN Super Thin Indoor HDTV Antenna - 25 Miles Range.


I recently went through a whole song & dance about HDTV antennas for my RV. I bought two different directional high-gain antennas, only to find that they wouldn't even receive signals at my home! When I'd reorient the antenna and initiate another channel search, I would sometimes get ONE or TWO channels... then I'd lose them when I'd try to reorient the antenna.
What I figured out is that DIRECTIONAL HDTV ANTENNAS ARE, ESSENTIALLY, WORTHLESS. There is really no way of knowing precisely which direction the broadcast towers are and, even if you knew, they will not all usually be clustered in one small area... they may be scattered here & there around your area.
What I eventually did is bought an OMNIDIRECTIONAL HIGH GAIN ANTENNA, which was no more expensive than the DIRECTIONAL antennas I tried. Did a channel search, and got almost all of the channels in my area!
Any omnidirectional HDTV antenna will work with your television, but I'd recommend buying the one with the highest GAIN (expressed in "dB" or "dBi" with the highest number being best). Try to find a POWERED antenna with an internal SIGNAL AMPLIFIER.
Also, if you live far away from broadcast towers as I do, you may wish to consider adding an additional SIGNAL AMPLIFIER as well.

Antenna not detected what could this be


Usually the antenna is not plugged-in all the way, or you have broken the little tiny antenna wire. Try another location first, then try another antenna.
