SOURCE: tv not working

Can you confirm that you didn't have any input signal? My wife once accidentally pressed the reset button on the remote and the TV was stuck in this state. I tried to hook up an antenna to the digital antenna input and let the TV search for a channel. It did find a station and got out of the channel search mode, which was all I needed. Then, I unhook the antenna and continued to enjoy my DVD movie. I didn't check the manual. So, it's possible that there is a better solution. My TV was working fine and I think it just has a terrible user interface. I'm not sure about your TV's condition, though.

I want to save the channels and turn my antenna to another direction and scan I loose the channels that I had can I save them some how?


The only way that I solve this issue is to write down the channels available from one direction on paper. Do the scan in the second direction. Return the antenna to the first direction and then manually add the rest of the channels. Depending on the TV, you either type in the channel number with the remote control or find a Add Channel option in the TV Channel sub-menu.

At least with my TV that doesn't have an Add Channel option in the Channel section, going to a digital channel with the remote doesn't store the channel number if the signal isn't strong enough for the tuner to resolve. Analog channels can be added when the signal is poor.

If you know all of the local channels in each direction from AntennaWeb ( http://www.antennaweb.org ) or TvFool
( http://www.tvfool.com ), you can use that documentation to add the channels at each antenna direction.

I hope this helps. If you use an electronic antenna rotor with a remote control, you may be able to program turning the antenna automatically when you change the channel. Check the documentation for the device to program this.

(Note: on my TV that adds channels only when I type in the channel number, recorded digital channels can disappear from the list if if I visit a channel with poor signal strength. Until the antenna is directed towards that transmitter, I can't add the channel back into the list.)

I used my Haier tv on cable service. I moved to rural area where there is no cable service. I tried to use my tv on an HD antenna, cannot get a signal. ???


You gotta try to reprogram your channels, but first you must have an external antenna to receive the signal. Follow your TV manual and set it to automatically reprogram it. It may take a long time since it will try to setup regular (analog), digital and cable channels (analog and digital as well). Depending on how far you are from the TV stations, you may also have to install a signal booster (amplifier) before attempting to reprogramm the channels, so you can get more channels without glitches. If you have internet you can also watch TV over it.

Satellite is another good option. Dish Network or DirectTV are 2 good options for remote areas. I have never had satellite, so I can't precise with one is the best for you.

We have a problem with one of the channels - when we try to watch it the picture pixelates and there is a nasty popping sound :(


If you are using a satellite receiver for cable TV reception, that particular channel has low signal strength coming into the receiver from the dish antenna. Realigning the direction of the dish might improve the signal but make sure you do not have the same problem on some other OK channel.

MY NEW HAIER 7" TV SAYS "NO DATABASE"! AND WHEN


Hi there,

Don't throw it away just yet. It's still under warranty so returning it would be far better than throwing it away ;)

As you can tune the cable channels OK, I suspect there is a problem with the reception from the antenna and the signal strength is too low. Please can you answer the following simple questions so that I can help you to solve this problem

1. What antenna are you using - indoor/rabbit ears or outdoor/roof antenna?
2. Do you have a good reception on another TV connected to the same antenna ?

If you are using an indoor antenna, try moving the TV to another location to see if you can get a better reception.

Please let me know the answers to the above questions. I will then be able to assist you further.

Regards,
BElectric

I'm trying to set the digital channels on my durabrand tv and i get the message that digital channel signal strength is low. what do i need to do?


If you are using a regular antenna to receive the signal, then you would need to either find a signal booster of some sort, or improve the antenna. There are many antennas out there for the digital era, most of them are set-top multi-/omni-directional ones, but they have their limitations. Unfortunately to get a better signal, typically an outdoor antenna is needed, or a large expansive one in the attic.

Are you connected to a digtal converter or just a digital antenna? If only to an antenna then yes you will most likely pick up one or two low power UHF stations that are still able to broadcast in analog.

I get no stations on my tv


Use an Antenna that Provides Good Reception of All Channels
  • Most existing antennas used by consumers will provide good reception of DTV signals. (Before making any changes, try your existing antenna first to see of it allows you to receive all the stations you normally watch.)
  • For watching DTV signals, you will need an antenna that provides good reception of both VHF signals (channels 2-13) and UHF signals (channels 14-51) to reliably receive all of the digital signals broadcast in your area.
  • Many antennas are designed only for reception of either VHF or UHF signals (but not both). For example, the commonly used “rabbit ears” indoor antenna is only suitable for receiving VHF signals. To receive UHF signals, an indoor antenna should also include a wire loop or other feature for reception in that band.
  • The reception capabilities of TV antennas also vary considerably, so be sure to talk to retail consultants and look at information on the packaging and/or the Internet to make sure that any new antenna you may choose provides good reception of both VHF and UHF channels. In addition, if you use an indoor antenna and receive signals on VHF channels, you may need to use an antenna with amplification.
  • Many antennas currently being sold as “HDTV Antennas,” perform best at receiving UHF signals; some of these models state that they provide reception of signals on channels 7-13 but actually perform less well receiving those channels. If you obtain one of these antennas, be sure it provides good reception of all the VHF channels as well as the UHF channels.
  • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
Check Your Connections
  • Check that your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television is connected properly. Make sure your antenna is connected to the antenna input of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. If using a digital-to-analog converter box, also ensure that the antenna output of your converter box is connected to the antenna input of your analog TV. Refer to the owner’s manuals of your components if you are unsure of the proper connections.
  • Ensure that your components are plugged in and have their power turned on.
  • If you have a digital-to-analog converter box, tune your analog TV to channel 3. You should see a set-up menu or picture displayed on your TV screen. If you do not see a set-up menu or picture, tune your TV to channel 4. If you still do not see a set-up menu or picture, recheck your connections.
Perform a Channel Scan
  • Digital-to-analog converter boxes and digital televisions have a button, usually on the remote control, that is labeled “set-up” or “menu” or some similar term. Press that button to access the set-up menu. Using the directional arrow buttons on your remote, scroll to the option that allows you to perform a “channel scan.” The channel scan will automatically search for digital broadcast channels that are available in your area. Consult the owner’s manual of your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television for detailed instructions on how to perform a channel scan for your device.
  • Once the channel scan is complete, you will be able to tune to the digital channels received by your antenna. You should perform a channel scan periodically to check whether additional digital channels have become available.
Adjust Your Antenna
  • Small adjustments to your antenna can make a big difference in the number of digital channels you can receive. If you have an indoor antenna, try elevating it and moving it closer to an exterior wall of your home. After adjusting your antenna, perform another channel scan to see if your reception is improved.
  • While adjusting your antenna, it may be helpful to access the “signal strength meter” on your digital-to-analog converter box or digital television to determine whether your adjustments are improving the signals’ strength. The signal strength meter is usually accessed through the menu feature on your remote control. Refer to the owner’s manual of your device for detailed instructions on how to access its signal strength meter. Remember to do another channel scan after you have adjusted your antenna.
  • Television stations broadcasting in digital use both the VHF band (channels 2-13) and UHF band (channels 14-51). Many indoor antennas use “rabbit ears” for the VHF band and a “loop” or “bow-tie” antenna for the UHF band. Make sure you are using an antenna that covers both the VHF and UHF bands and have connected it properly.
If You are Still Having Difficulty:
  • Until June 12, 2009, some stations will be operating at reduced power levels. If you are not receiving certain digital TV stations, this does not necessarily mean there is a problem with your antenna or digital-to-analog converter box or digital television. Check with the TV station to find out whether they are planning changes that will improve reception.
  • When an analog TV signal is weak or receives interference, static, snow, and distortion will often appear on the screen. Digital broadcasting will provide a clear picture; however, if the signal falls below a certain minimum strength, the picture can disappear. This “cliff effect” means that if you watch analog TV stations that have static and distortion, you may have to adjust or upgrade your antenna system.
  • Simple indoor antennas provide minimal performance that may not be suitable for your location. If you are unable to obtain satisfactory DTV reception with your current indoor antenna, you may wish to obtain an indoor antenna that includes features for better reception of UHF signals, as well as VHF, and/or an amplifier to boost the received signal (often referred to as an active indoor antenna).
  • Generally, an outdoor antenna will get better reception than an indoor antenna. However, the performance of outdoor antennas can degrade over time due to exposure to the weather. If you are having problems, check for loose or corroded wiring, broken antenna elements and that the antenna is pointed in the right direction.
  • Try to keep the length of wire between your antenna and digital-to-analog converter box or digital television as short as possible for best reception.
  • “Splitters” that are used to connect a single antenna to multiple digital-to-analog converter boxes or digital televisions reduce the amount of signal available to each device. If you are having problems, check whether reception is improved without the splitter. In some cases an “active” splitter that includes an amplifier can solve the problem.
  • If you are near a station’s broadcast tower, reception of that station, as well as other stations, can be impeded by strong signal “overload.” Consider using an “attenuator” or removing amplifiers to improve your reception.
  • If you decide to replace or upgrade your indoor or outdoor antenna, many types are available from electronics retail stores at a variety of prices. Websites such as www.antennaweb.org provide information on the locations of broadcast towers and the types of outdoor antennas appropriate for the stations you wish to receive. If you need assistance with upgrading your antenna system, check with a local antenna retailer or antenna installer.
  • To check for the DTV signals that are available at your location, use the DTV Reception Maps available at www.fcc.gov/mb/engineering/maps.
Hope it may helps:

Why do the stations keep blinking in and out all day and all night? is this how it's going to be even after 6-12-09? it really gets on my nerves when i'm watching tv and miss over half of whats going on or...


The channels are going off because the signal is not stavying strong enough to keep a regular picture. If you are having this with several channels, there are several things you can check. First, make sure all the antenna wires are not loose. Then find the signal strength option in your converter box (each is different thus you need to check the manual on how to use) to see how strong your signal is. If all channels are low, you most likely need a outdoor antenna. These can be bought at any home improvement store. There is no such thing as a digital antenna. The signal for the channels are still being sent over the same tv spectrum (most will be over UHF) thus walk away from any electronic store that is selling a special digital antenna, there is no such thing. I am using a outdoor antenna, and the picture I receive is just as good as cable. It is some effort to hook it up correctly but the improved picture is well worth the effort. Very heavy rain, wind and clouds at your home and near were the tv broadcast antenna is will also effect your picture. These problems go away as the weather gets better. Directv also has the same problems with weather.

No Signal


Make sure you have a good connection from the antenna to the converter box. Set your TV to channel 3 or 4.
The converter won't improve reception in any way, and it's possible you might need to relocate your antenna or get an exterior antenna hooked up to improve the signal strength.
If you have enough antenna cable, and you're only using rabbit ears, hang them out the window or up on a curtain rod and see if that improves things.
Some people have good luck with the new digital style set-top antennas. I think you'll have best luck, though, with an old roof-top antenna that's set up to feed your converter.
Best of luck to you!
