Poor reception on atsc portable tv

I just purchased a 7" axion tv to replace my old b&w portable. I am using the external antenna that came with the tv, but I am only getting about 3 channels clearly. Is there a better quality antenna I can purchase to get a few more stations?

An external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna

Need universal remote control tv codes


If you have a universal remote control, you can use its code search feature to try to find a code that works. If you search through allcodes stored in the remote without success, you may have to try another universal remote. Different remotes may have different codes.

I only get 3 channels--and none of them I want! Does this TV only work with a cable attached? Which doesn't make it portable!


If you live in the US and the TV doesn't have the newer ATSC (digital) tuner, you're lucky to get 3 channels! The only analog broadcasts left in the US are "low power" & "translator" stations. The old NTSC analog tuners in TV's from just a few years back have little to tune since broadcasters have been moved and changed from analog to digital as directed by the FCC in 2009.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

We can't get any channels to tune in with the over the air antenna.


I solved this problem by purchasing an external indoor HD TV antenna. Once I plugged it into the TV, I received approx 20 channels, picture and sound are fine. The antenna that comes with the TV appears to work only when you are located quite close to the source of the TV signals.

How do i improv my signal strength? it has always been very poor no matter where i go.


Best solution to improve signal strength is with an antenna other than the simple rod antenna.
The rod antenna is really only useful for very close stations and does not work well under most conditions, especially if you are on the move while using it.

Even a simple portable rabbit ears antenna can make a big difference.
Believe it or not, I have used a rabbit ear from the local dollar store to receive much better signals than with the rod antenna.
If you are using the Haier in a home, you might try purchasing an inexpensive old-school antenna from solid signal or radio shack. I set mine on a plastic garbage can in the attic and ran a 100 foot coax cable down to my old cable wire outlet.
You can also buy amplified antennas which look good and mount on the wall or near a window for apartment dwellers.
You might also try making your own HD antenna out of coat hangers and a piece of wood.

Plugged in, cable connected, turned on, says "No Signal"


OTA signal? Check your antenna orientation and if there are any tall objects that would interfere with the signal. (See antennaweb.org or tvfool.com for signal directions and distance to the station. antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative with station information.) Scan for channels with Menu > > (right arrow twice) up or down to AutoScan and hit enter. Use add channels to include stations with the antenna in a new direction.

If you are using the built-in antenna, you may not get digital signals. Try an external antenna (see above sites). Digital signals are enough or zero.

This TV doesn't have a cable tuner so a set top box would be needed for cable stations, check the box directions for the station you need to tune the TV to access the signal.

I hope this helps.

Axion dvd player 6070A 7 inch screen stuck on loading


not good, the unit will cost more to fix than replace. The only thing that might help is if it has a removable battery, if so take it out and leave it out for an hour, & try again. You might try using the power cord instead( I dont think it will help but try it before you toss it out)

Need adator for DTV converter box.


The converter box needs an antenna, but not the one built into the TV. In fact, you should get an antenna designed for the new DTV broadcasts to get the best reception. There are a number of styles and they start at under $10.

To connect the converter box to the TV, you have a couple of options. You can use the channel 3 or 4 output from the box and connect the cable to the TV external antenna jack with the appropriate adapter. Or, since this TV also works as a monitor, you could use the converter box video and audio outputs instead. If the TV has a single A/V input jack instead of separate audio and video jacks (the usual case), Radio Shack and other vendors sell the adapter cable you'll need. One might have been supplied with the TV.

TV connecting to portable dvd player


You should be able to hook into your tv with no problem using a audio/video jack available at any radio shack, you would tune your tv to either the select "video" channel or ch.3, your t.v. set should have no problem with the attached device.

Axion handheld tv. No picture at all.


I have on and if the batteries start getting weak the screen display brightness is the first to stop working. Double check that, if you are on AC power try sliding the brightness control from dim to bright a few times and see if the rheostat has corroded. Those are a few of the quick checks you can try, let me know. Jay
