I bought this tv, more or less 4 years ago, and I'm live in brazil. So, when I got here the Tv was black and white, no color! What's wrong? Can we help me?


Depending on where the set was purchased (USA) it may be NTSC format and Brazil is likely to be different format like PAL or even Seacam---they do make converter boxes that will convert signal from one format to another.

Hi, I have a sony bravia tv ( klv20G300A) which was bought in Hong Kong about3 years ago . I haven't been able to get it to work with the uk digital signal. I am wondering about it's compatibility-...


This tv has analog tuner and you need digital tuner in tv to get digital signal in UK, alternate way is to hook cable box with this tv that will convert digital signal into AV output that will connect to AV input of tv to get cable channels.

Digital


If the set is an LCD, yes, it is "Digital" but that only refers to the display. To receive digital off-the-air broadcasts, the set must have a digital or ATSC tuner, otherwise the set has a standard tuner that will no longer work. If the set is "digital ready" a digital satellite/cable/off-the-air converter box must be used, and fed to the set's video input(s).

Did you get fooled? Hard one to answer. It more than likely was the result of the sales person's lack of technical knowledge. "Digital" and "Digital Ready" designations have confused just about everyone since "digital" was first introduced to television.

Hope this clarifies some of the mystery, rhais.

No digital reception with HD ready TV.


Someone did not explain to you what HDTV "Ready" means. It means you do not have a ATSC tuner in it to except over the air digital signal. The only way you will get digital reception is either from a HD Cable box with RGB outputs that plug into your RGB inputs, or being on Satellite connecting the same way. Seven years ago manufacturers never made it easy to understand and Salesmen only made it worse. So in short the term HDTV Ready meant it can, with a BOX.

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?


6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

How do i tell if my broksonic tv is a digital tv


IT WOULD SAY HD READY ON THE FRONT OF THE SET. YOUR SET IS NOT HD READY. USE CONVERTER BOX FOR HD CHANNELS.

IS MY TV DIGITAL READY


Its tuner is NTSC, which will not tune in digital stations. I didn't see a DTV tuner mentioned anywhere on the specs, so don't think it will work. I myself have one and will soon purchase a converter box with the $40 rebate from the government.
