''no signal'' is the only thing on the screen

I am wondering if this new tv will only begin working after the 17th of febuary. can you help with any added suggestions on what to try. my old tv is still functioning, but is not a dtv. i am unable to get cable and satellite dish is not practicable for me at this time. right now the product is useless to me as the words '' no signal'' are the only thing on the screen.

Hello,

I am happy to assist you! If you have a brand new television you need to look and see if it has a digital tuner. If is does and you do not have cable or satellite then according to your location you can pick up channels on a rabbit ear or regular antenna.

If you do not have a digital tuner on your tv set you must have a digital converter box to convert the old analog signal to digital since you are using a regular tv antenna. You will not get any signal unless you have an antenna.

Rabbit ears will pickup but according to you location and an outside antenna will do the same and the larger the better.

Hook up of the digital box is simple...in to the box from the antenna and out to the tv on the coaxial hookups on back of the box.

The signal is scheduled for Feb 17 but I have heard rumors of an extension

Hi caroldove, I am happy to help. I don't have the model number of your tv so I will have to give generalized instruction.

From the tv menu make sure the tuning band is set to AIR or ANTENNA not Cable,
You will have to have a antenna connected to the tv, preferably an outdoor type, depending on how far you are from the broadcast tower you may be able to use Rabbitears.
From the tv menu do a Auto Channel Search, if any signals are within reach it should find them.
I have provided a link to a site with more information on antennas and direction they should face.

Let me know if this helps and if you need more assistance. Please rate this solution Lone99star

Why can't I get the DVD player to work? I have it hooked up to a cable box.


im wondering why you did not connect it to the tv ?? but instead to cable box , does it have a pass thru capability ?? does it need to be off to pass thru ?? as most dvd player don't have a rf output but instead use a hdmi or composite signal output , would it not be easier to connect one of these to a spare input on tv then when u want to use dvd you only need to select the proper input from tvs source button to view the dvd ??

WHY DID MY VIORE SCREEN RESIZE TO SMALLER SCREEN


Screen size depends on the broadcast signals aspect ratio, the TV adjusts for that automatically, the picture can have no bands or be banded top and bottom or on both sides.

The color on my TV is all pink. I have tried a hard reset but it didn't help.


Your TV has lost a GREEN color from a basic color palette (Red-Green-Blue). It is often caused by:
- damaged LCD cable (which connects the display with a signal board inside the TV),
- damaged video signal cable (ex. SCART, HDMI, VGA),
- damaged video processor (on the signal board).
I can't give you a more accurate answer, because I don't know what is your TV mark and model and, in what situations you have the problem.

How to program my lg magic remote with my dish tv box


I'm wondering if the original question "How to program my lg magic remote with my dish tv box" was ever answered, and if the problem was eventually identified and resolved. (none of the answers above seem to be solutions).
I have the same problem - unable to control my Dish receiver (VIP722K) with my new LG Magic Remote - and LG support wasn't able to help. Is this a known compatibility issue?
