Question about Dell W5001C 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Regarding a dell W5001C 50" Plasma TV... when I connect a cable to the digital TV input and attempt to set up the TV, under "channel setup", antenna is selected and cannot be changed. Selection is "greyed out" so cable cannot be selected. Thus I can only tune channels 2-13 on the digital tuner. Any ideas?

Why can't I use a digital antenna on my flat


Most televisions today have a setup mode for the tuner where it searches for channels based upon the input type. Older sets required the user to input whether or not the source was over-the-air broadcast, analog cable, or digital cable. If you were using your set with the cable or satellite system previously. you will most likely need to run the setup again with the digital antenna and let the set find the channels available via the antenna.

How do I connect my digital tv converter box to this plasma tv. My antenna in and signal out are both co-axial cable. Which input do I use on the back of the tv? Would I use a BNC adapter to coaxial...


Here is a cheap and easy way to connect this for you....

Get a VCR (often times can be found at goodwill or garage sales for very cheap) and connect the coax cable from the output of the Converter box to the Antenna/Cable in on the VCR then connect from the RCA output from the VCR to the TV. Tune the VCR to Channel 3 most likely and change channels through the converter box.....

Good Luck and please rate this solution....

Off air antenna hook up


You probably have to set the tv to run on the input jacks your antenna is plugged in to. In other words these newer tv's have 2 or 3 inputs and they only run on the input it is set on, if not the right one you must change the setting. On mine there is a button next to the on/off button on the set which is inputs, keep pressing that button and it cycles through inputs till you get the right one. When tv first comes on it flashes the name of the current input on the screen--think they all do that. If input is hdmi, it refers to the hdmi socket, if composit (I think) then it refers to the rca jacks that are red, white, yellow, may be more than one of either. In this way you could have cable on one input, a video player on another, and cable on still another by switching desired input. I use a UHF antenna but it didn't work till I got the right input and then searched for stations studying the menu for station setup, have to set up the stations first, it will configure settings for each station, and have it do that before you can expect to find and receive stations. With correct input you should get a blue screen or something with printing if input is right, click your menu button and will see the menu and then find where to configure stations setup, otherwise it is totally black and nothing happens, nothing responds, that's the wrong input.

Cnannel scan detects no channels


Kingscott,
Make sure the cable connection from the dish to the tv is
connected to the antenna/cable input and not the digital
input. Turn on the satellite receiver then auto program the
set with the receiver still on. If this fails to lock in channel
3 your suspicion regarding a faulty tuner could be correct.
A good way to check the tuner operation would be to hook
up another product such as a VCR with the rear switch set
for channel 3 and see if you can receive a picture from this
device. If it works the tuner is OK.
You can bypass the tuner by connecting an S-Video cable
and (or) a set of A/V (yellow,red & white) cables from the
output of the satellite receiver to the video 1 input on the tv.
You'll then have to switch the tv source mode to video 1.
Hope this of some help,
Caseybee
