Portable TV becoming obsolete

I purchased a portable tv many years ago, that continues to work. But now I'm faced with the DTV conversion in which my tv will no longer work afterwards. Is there anything I can do to upgrade it, so I don't feel as though I've wasted my money?

Do you have the flat screen type? Because I have one and it is working. You just need to make sure that your portable TV receives digital signal.

I just received a Coby TFTV992 9" portable TV. I'm trying to tune the TV channels without success.


1st click the "mode" button on the TV or remote then use the vol. up and down buttons to scroll around until you get to DTV mode then press "enter" on the remote you should get a message "please run channel auto scan" . click "Menu" on the remote the "Picture" screen will come up, keep clicking the vol. up button to scroll past "Audio" then "Setup" then to "Channel" then use the CH up or down buttons to scroll to "Air" click OK , then use the CH down button to scroll to "Scan all channels" then click the vol. up button. it then should start scanning, FYI you have to be fast!

I have 2 handicapp vans with TV's. I need to upgrade them to digital I suppose since neither works now. Where do I get the device for mobile conversion and operation?


If you continue to operate the same TVs...you will need to purchase a conversion box. This conversion box will except digital signals to analog and provide an outstanding picture to your already installed TVs. You may have to search for a battery type device for the van you have. But I'm sure you will seek and find. Check at a reputable electronic store....the discounts stores more than likely will not have these! Good Luck!

Need adator for DTV converter box.


The converter box needs an antenna, but not the one built into the TV. In fact, you should get an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts to get the best reception. There are a number of styles and they start at under $10.

To connect the converter box to the TV, you have a couple of options. You can use the channel 3 or 4 output from the box and connect the cable to the TV external antenna jack with the appropriate adapter. Or, since this TV also works as a monitor, you could use the converter box video and audio outputs instead. If the TV has a single A/V input jack instead of separate audio and video jacks (the usual case), Radio Shack and other vendors sell the adapter cable you'll need. One might have been supplied with the TV.

Even though it's small, it's still a TV with a standard tuner. So you could use it with a converter box if you really wanted to. You would need to connect the box to the TV's external antenna connector with an appropriate adapter. Then the TV would stay on channel 3 (or 4) while you change channels through the converter box. But just like any other set without the new tuner, once the regular broadcasting ends it won't be able to pick up digital channels.

Has anyone else had this problem?


I bought the same tv about a year ago. I noticed that the power adapter gets very hot when plugged into the electrical outlet so I unplug it after watching tv. Better to be safe than sorry.
