Question about Zenith B27A11Z 27" TV

1 Answer

I have a Zenith SR2568S TV purchased in 1996

Is this model digital or will I need a converter box? I have been on cable and now I'm not. Will this model work with just an antenna? Or will I need to get the converter box before June?

Kathy Hopkins

Does the Zenith A27B33W need a digital converter to get broadcast television? (not cable TV)


Turn on your Zenith TV and try selecting channels. If you see channels such as 10.1, 52.2, etc. displayed, they are digital. If you do not see digital channels displayed, you will need to purchase and install an A/D converter (set top box).

I need to reprogram my zenith sy2568s tv to recieve available channels


With the remote control:
1. Press Menu repeatedly to view the Setup Menu. 2. Select Auto Program. 3. Use the Left/Right Arrows to advance to the next menu. 4. Select either OFF AIR ANTENNA or CABLE TV.* 5. Use the Left/Right Arrows to advance to begin the channel search.
*NOTE: THIS TELEVISION WAS MANUFACTURED IN 1996 AND HAS AN ANALOG TUNER ONLY AND WILL NOT RECEIVE OVER THE AIR SIGNALS AS ALL OVER THE AIR SIGNALS ARE DIGITAL NOW AS OF 2009. IN ORDER TO USE THIS TELEVISION SET FOR OVER THE AIR SIGNALS YOU WILL NEED A DIGITAL TO ANALOG CONVERTER BOX AVAILABLE FOR BETWEEN $30 AND $60. CHECK EBAY FOR GOOD DEALS ON THEM.

The picture freezes and the sound is lost. Until the picture returns and the sound returns,this happens every couple of seconds.


If you actually have the Zenith model TV (B25A24Z), the trouble is not in your set. This model has only an analog tuner, and what it sounds like you are describing is digital pixellation. This is what happens with a digital-to-analog converter box when it gets a weak signal, with rain fade or heavy snow on a satellite dish antenna, or when a digital cable system has some signal problems. The converter equipment locks the last complete frame (or breaks up into blocks and freezes) and the sound is muted.

You'll need to look for the cause of your trouble in whatever is feeding the TV. If you have a digital converter box for off-the-air broadcasts, make sure you have a good antenna and all the connections are tight. If you have satellite TV service or digital cable service, you might need to contact your service provider for help in troubleshooting and fixing the trouble.

How can i tell if my advent tv manufactured in 2003 model #q2035a is hdtv ready or if i need to purchase a digital converter box?


The first question to ask is how do you get your tv signal. If you have either cable, or satellite TV then you don't need a converter box, as those companies do the conversion for you.

If you have an antenna, you will need a converter box if yout TV is an older model which is analog and not digital. If your tv is a 2003, it is analog.

DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3


I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

The short answer is no. You will not need a converter box. This set contains the ATSC tuner required for the new over-air signals.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck
