To start ensure that the problem is not a lose cable at the back of the TV or of the Box, check all cables and connection.

If that is not the problem, the solution depends on what cable you use to connect the box to the tv.

If you use a coax antenna cable, you may need to do a channel auto tune search to find the frequency from the obx. Do this only if you use coax connection.

On any other cable, switch the box channel, to ensure you are not on a blank channel, and use the tv remote source, or input button untill you do not find the picture for the box channels.

If that does not work, then it is probably a cable and connection problem.

Change the tv setting back to antenna they may be on air, or on cable. Once changed back the set will be working again.

Connecting a sansui 13 inch to a converter box


1) Connect the converter box to a good digital TV antenna and position the antenna as high and as close to a window as possible.
2) Set the converter box 'output switch' to an unused channel for your area. (Usually 2, 3 or 4.)
3) Connect the output of the converter box to the 'antenna input' on the TV.
4) Turn on both units and set the TV channel to the same output channel selected above.
5) Now select TV channels using the converter box remote only. The TV should receive all converted channels on the preselected channel.
6) Adjust the TV antenna for the best reception for all channels.

Yes hello, i'm trying to hook up my Coby 12'1 digital tv to a converter box is that possible or do i need a cable box for it to connect?


You should be able to connect the tv to a converter box. This is good for OTA signals to a TV with an NTSC tuner (coax) or composite video input. http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=prod&prod_num_id=205&pcat_id=2007#features-tab has the manual for the DTV102. Put the antenna coax cable to the converter box ANT In and then either the antenna out to the TV or the A/V (composite) out to the TV's composite in. If you use the RF connection, you will need to set the TV to channel 3 or 4 and set the switch on the converter box appropriately. For a composite video connection, you will need to change the input to AV1 (if there are several inputs). Depending on the TV, there may be a source or input button on the TV. For other models this is only on the remote. If you have the original remote, no problem. If you have a universal remote, make sure that you have a key that corresponds to the feature and that you found the code that lets the key work for your TV. (Not all universal remotes have the feature.)

However, you should get the best antenna that you can and have it pointed correctly to receive the stations. Digital signal doesn't have borderline reception. Try antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to check the stations and directions in your area. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but is very conservative in the channel list that it will indicate you can receive. Tvfool lists the channel reception depending on the antenna type. Tall trees and buildings can block the signal.

I hope this helps.

(please note that surges from the antenna can damage converter boxes and kill the tuner.)

Converter box worked fine and now wont get any signal


Did you go through the complete setup by putting your TV on Channel 3 and letting it scan all of your channels or are you just hooking up the box and not doing this? Make sure the box is set to "blue" which is On and do the complete setup.

Receive one channel with Coverter Box


Make sure those 6 channels are also being broadcast in Digital format also, otherwise your converter box won't have a digital signal to convert for your TV. The switchover date is early next year I believe.

Dtv box


the box broadcasts through channel 3 thus you have to set your tv to channel 3 to pick up the signal. There is a menu to use once you get a singal to pick up the channels. You may also want to call the 1800 number on the back of the remote, they will wallk you through the problem.
