Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
I was hoping I'd be able to find a manual or service info in my files once I knew the model, but no luck. So I don't know for sure on your TV, but almost every set Panasonic made had an external antenna connection. They usually used a mini jack, normally on the rear or one of the side panels. If you find a connection on your set, just pick up the appropriate adapter from Radio Shack. (The plug on an antenna cable is called an F-connector, so you can fling about tech terms.)
If this set truly has no external antenna connector, you can still hook a converter box to the set. Get a 75-ohm to 300-ohm converter (also called a balun). This has the threaded F-connector on one end and a length of flat two conductor antenna cable with terminals at the other end. Simply use an alligator clip jumper wire to clip one of the terminals to the TV's built-in rod antenna and turn the set to channel 3 or 4 for the converter box signal.
The bigger problem you might have is if you use this set without an AC power source. I haven't yet seen a converter box that allows you to use a DC power source. They all have built-in supplies and need AC. It might be possible to add a DC input jack to a converter, but I've never tried it.
Hope I've been able to help you. Thanks for asking here!
