Everything is digital now. You will need a digital converter box. You will connect an antenna to it, and then connect the box to your tv. The box will come with it's own remote. Your tv will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on the converter box you get), and you will control the stations with the remote that came with the converter. You can get them at any electronics store.
Switch TV on Press “MENU” on remote until 3 blue arrows appear Press “VOLUME” keys to tune up or down (shown on blue bar) When required programme is tuned, input required Channel number (appears on 2 green lines at top) e.g. 02 or 14 Carry on tuning and allocating channel numbers Select “MENU” to clear or wait until it clears by itself Channels should now be tuned to allocated numbers
Three dash option does mean it will look for three numbers. You would then have to put in three digits, so for example if you want to go to channel 31 then key in the numbers 031, for channel 42 key in 042, If you want a lower such as channel 8, then key in 008. Try this.
put your tv on channel 3 , and make sure the back of the "converter boxes switch" is set to channel 3 not 4 if using the coaxial antenna connection to the tv
if using the video and audio jacks then the switch on the box will not matter
I have the same TV as in the picture and it is analog(didn't check model #). I know of no way to use a converter box on it short of hacking it apart. Although it can still pick up any low power analog channels that maybe in your area. I just bought a nice hand cranked paperweight just a few years ago. lol
I had this same problem, I wanted to use this tv with a converter box and the only way to do this was to hook up the converter box with an external antenna to the small 3.5mm input on the back. If you go to radio Shack and get an "F to 1/8" Adapter"the radio shack part number is "278-257". It worked perfectly. I'm able to get many clear channels, and with the converter box I now have remote control. It works well. Good luck, I hope this helps
