Connecting Rabbit Ears

My mother has recently purchased a new LG TV. This is a serious step up from the 13in TV before. The problem I have trying to set it up for her is getting her rabbit ears to show a signal on the LG. I know it's not a problem with the reception, picture was fine on the other TV. I tried running the EZ Scan, but that didn't bring up any channels. I've also noticed that I can only get to three channels on the LG, (15, 16, 17) unless I key in specific numbers to get to other channels. I'm hoping this is going to prove why she should get a better piece of tech to get signal, but until then, any help would be greatly appreciated. J

Re: Connecting Rabbit Ears

If you are going through a VCR, make sure you have it in Port 1, or the primary connection. Sometimes they are sticking out the front and people use the alternate port at the back for tidyness, then it won't work.

Just purchased an RCA 32" LED TV from K-Mart. Trying to set-up and in auto-scan it will not pick up any channels

It really depends on how your connecting signal. I am not sure about where you are but virtually all cable companies in Canada require the use of the cable box. Searching channels will only check either the analog cable input or rabbit ears. Typically you hook up the cable box via HDMI and set the televsion to that HDMI input and channels are changed on the cable box.

TV rabbit ears are for analog TV settings. You need an analog TV transmitter very close to the TV to get any good reception. Otherwise you need an antenna with more gain and more height to receive any analog TV transmitters in your area.

No reception with rabbit ears

Check to see if you have the "Rabbit ears" plugged into the correct spot and you are on "Analog tv" if you are trying to use digital tv on "Rabbit ears" it can't send out a strong signal like the areal ontop of a house. You may need to get an adapter to broadcast a stronger signal but even better if you can connect to roof antena.

  1. What kind of signal are you putting into it. If your not putting a HD signal into set your going to have a crappy pix. Try hooking a pair of rabbit ears into it and see how the pix looks. Might have to autoprogram the set and put the tv in antenna mode Keep me posted

Trying to get DTV, I can't figure it out

If you are in the US you need a digital reciever, rabbit ears or otherwise and have since February. That when all US broadcasters switched to digital broadcast. If it's more than about 5 years old you will likely have to purchase a new TV.

Tv set just lost its ability to display digital channels

Your problem is definitely the input signal source to your tv. It is extremely rare where a new tv has a tuner signal sensitivity problem. The best thing to do is to replace your current set of rabbit ears with a different set of powered rabbit ears that have a higher gain rating with a variable gain control. Please note that the gain control setting is critical when setting up your tuner for auto-programming. If the gain control is set too low or too high it will result in your symptom.

If you still can't get it to work you could try buying a line amplifier which you would install to the rabbit ears before the tv. If you still can't get it to work you'll have no choice but to purchase an outside antennae as a result of your being in a weak signal area as signal quality changes by such things as the switch over to digital upcoming and environmental changes.

We have a new HDLCDVD220 Sansui television. The rabbit ears antennae we were using on our old tv worked ok, but on this one. its awful. There is almost no color and terrible reception. We were told to get...

You mentioned rabbit ears for old tv, how old are the rabbit ears? Time and humidity will make rabbit ears lose connections internally. Also, if your old rabbit ears have the flat cable going to the tv you probably had to add a converter to go to the new tv. The flat cable will lose signal strength were ever the cable touches metal. Also the adapter will cause signal lose. The best bet is to buy an amplified indoor antenna. You also may try a paper clip and about 3to4' of small gauge wire put the paper clip (bend out to fit) into the center of the antenna in on the tv have the wire connected and let it hang or lift it to see how the picture improves. The problem with rabbit ears is that you have to use war time tactics. Crawl on your stomach and adjust to best picture, if you stand and adjust the signal is usually reflected off your body and will be nice until you walk away.

Are you useing rabbit ears? If so you may have to switch to an outdoor antenna to get those channels ( the digital signel is a better picture but the signel is not as wide as an analog signel so in most cases you will need an outdoor antenna!)
Also make sure your tv is in the antenna mode and not the cable mode!
