Question about Sansui HDLCDVD220 22 in. LCD TV TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

We have a new HDLCDVD220 Sansui television. The rabbit ears antennae we were using on our old tv worked ok, but on this one. its awful. There is almost no color and terrible reception. We were told to get cable or a roof antennae, but we can't afford it. Is there another solution?

    The rabbit ears are brand new. The cable is not flat, no converter used.The antenae has 2 dials on it ,I suppose for range and its set to the highest. I don't know if that makes it an amplified range. Incidentally, the tv is on the 3rd floor and there are other tall buildings around. Thanks for any advice!

You mentioned rabbit ears for old tv, how old are the rabbit ears? Time and humidity will make rabbit ears lose connections internally. Also, if your old rabbit ears have the flat cable going to the tv you probably had to add a converter to go to the new tv. The flat cable will lose signal strength were ever the cable touches metal. Also the adapter will cause signal lose. The best bet is to buy an amplified indoor antenna. You also may try a paper clip and about 3to4' of small gauge wire put the paper clip (bend out to fit) into the center of the antenna in on the tv have the wire connected and let it hang or lift it to see how the picture improves. The problem with rabbit ears is that you have to use war time tactics. Crawl on your stomach and adjust to best picture, if you stand and adjust the signal is usually reflected off your body and will be nice until you walk away.

    Thanks, that info helps. Have you checked to see what the tv is set for on the antenna listings? You have a choice for cable or standard (outside/rabbit ears). If that antenna worked and is new then we have to point our finger at the tv. Let me know how this works. Do not forget the paper clip trick to see if you get a better picture, you can just hold onto it.

One for all universal remote i am trying to program my seiki television. I lost the original remote and the power button on the television is broken so I cant turn the television on


Always better to buy a genuine replacement. The problem is that if I remember correctly, Seiki don't actually make the television, which is why it never features in the Remote Code Lists. I have just checked three sites.

How could I connect a Daewoo 42sm TV?, I can't afford cable so I use a converter box(analog to digital w/rabbit antenna)on my other TV and I was given this Daewoo TV and would like to watch it;please


If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types
