Question about Casio EV-4500 4 in. Portable Television

Open Question

Is my Casio EV-4500 portable LCD TV digital ready?

I am thinking about buying an A/C adapter for my Casio EV-4500 TV, but I am not sure if it is going to work once we go "digital". Does anyone know if this TV will work without a converter box??

SOURCE: I have a Casio EV-570

According to CASIO website in Japanese, their portable TVs are not supporting Digital broadcasting and decided to cease production.
Thus it will not receive Digital broadcasting.
Although, EV-570 composite AV Input should still work for Camera, VCR, etc., I have not tried to connect to the DAC box.
My portable DVD without TV tuner worked with DAC box and now can watch digital TV program!

I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that connects to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
 
If your battery-operated TV does not have an external antenna jack, instructions for connecting it to a converter box can be found at

There are a few battery-operated converter boxes available, but for do-it-yourselfers, this web page also contains instructions for building a 12-volt converter box power supply.

You can actually plug a stereo headset into a mono jack and it will usually play the audio thru the left ear piece.

The only way is to use a standard "Set top box" or just use it as a video monitor for a VCR or DVD player - It has an A-V input that you can use, but it uses a 3.5mm jack socket (I think) - You'll need to determine the connections, but I'm sure it'll work fine. I'm just researching the conections myself. I'll re-post if I fine 'em.

Can I conveRt an analoge signal to digital for Casio tv


The need depends on what country you live in. In the US,Canada,and Mexico there are no longer any analog TV signals Everything broadcast over the air is digital. A digital to analog converter is available so older TV's without a built in digital tuner can be used.

Hi! I'm looking for a Casio EV-4500 4 in. Portable Television Power Supply. How, or where can I get it? I wish buy it by internet! Can you help me? Thanks!


Hi it all depends where in the world you live, if you have a maplin near to you then take it in their and they can match you one up as for getting one off the net you would have to look at the writing on the casio to find out what power supply it needs you need to check the volts and amps and match this up with another power supply, getting one off the net could be a bit hit and miss so i would suggest either maplin store or radio shack and if you dont have one of these near to you then go to your nearest computer hardware store or normal hardware store and you can buy and adaptor that has the option of choosing the volts on it these are universal adaptors and come with loads of fittings so it will fit pretty much anything, they also let you choose the voltage and one of these will get you up and running again.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

if you can provide the details off the casio such as what volts it says the charger should be then i may be able to track one down for you and point you in the right direction.
