Trying to convert from cable to antenna...I get no signal and it seemingly goes into sleep mode

Consult your TV's owner manual and enter "set up mode" to switch the RF or Antenna input from: CATV / Cable to: Antenna / Off Air. Then, allow the TV to scan VHF & UHF for signals strong enough to "tune in". You may need to upgrade your antenna in order to collect enough signal to display video properly. Make sure that your TV has a digital tuner (ATSC) as the old analog tuners (NTSC) have no signal to tune since broadcasters were forced to digital transmitters by the FCC years ago.

Use the site linked below to help you select an antenna that will allow you to receive all signals possible at your location - without buying more antenna than you need.

My lg tv does not recognise antenna socket/signal.

Check 2 items before going any further:
-- Make sure you have a good antenna signal by connecting it to another tv set.
-- Make sure you've switched input source of your tv to RF Antennae.
If the steps above didn't help your problem in TV tuner (assuming you're getting signal from other sources, i.e. DVD, VCR, etc). Have the unit serviced.

Look in the menu for set up. select antenna or cable .Be sure antenna or cable is connected to rf input/ select auto scan . Now if you are using a cable or sat box you do not need to bother with this. Just select the input from the input or Source menu. If you are connecting the box to your rf in then select channel 3 or 4.

Added new antenna and now im failing rf output and antenna radio test?18ft coax and a 48in ant.

First thing is to be sure the mount is not shorted in any way--and also to make sure that where it is mounted it is actually connected to ground--many newer vehicles have insulators so a bumper even if metal has no ground to work off of.

No ground, open or short in coax, open or short in mounting bracket all can cause no swr or high swr.

Do i need ariel for cobra MR F55 EU radio

? I assume you are asking if you need an ariel antenna for this radio in order to receive and transmit? if that is the case then yes you do, Any radio requires a matched antenna in order to transmit, if you were to transmit without an antenna, most of the RF energy will transfer back into the radio and over heat "burn out" the output transistors. always make sure to have a proper antenna connected before transmitting on any radio.

Akai VSG285 video - I can't tune any TV stations thru to the VCR?

This sounds like a hookup or programming problem.

The typical hookup is cable/satellite box output to VCR antenna/RF input, then VCR antenna/RF output to television input. Since you are able to watch pre-recorded tapes, the latter is already correct. There are other ways to connect, using the audio/video outputs of VCR to audio/video inputs of the TV. Older or low end TV sets may not have these connections.

If by chance you are using an outdoor antenna (not cable or satellite) then the antenna connects to VCR antenna/RF input and VCR output as above. You will also need to program the VCR into the stations- most late VCRs will scan for active channels, and program themselves to those channels.

I'm not sure of the capabilities of newer cable & sat boxes, but generally, you had to tune that box to the channel you wanted to record. The VCR is set to channel 3 or 4 depending on the output of the cable box.

Lastly, most VCRs of the last 10+ years require the remote to setup advanced functions, such as timed record, date & channel setup functions. The buttons on the VCR itself only do very basic functions, Stop/Play/Rewind/F-forward/Eject etc.

If you don't have the orig. remote, some universal remotes may be able to do advanced programming functions.

There could be at least two ways to hook in your VCR. The common way is to hook your VCR inline (between) the sat box output (RF or antenna) and the TV RF/antenna input. This will allow you to play the VCR/DVD & record whatever channel the sat box is set to. I'm not real familiar with the newer sat boxes, but I assume they output one channel at a time, thus, you can only record that channel. On the older cable or outdoor antenna systems, you could record one channel while watching another. Perhaps some sat boxes have this capability. You might do a Google search with the box Model number to see if an online manual can be found. The other hookup possibility is if your TV set has audio/video inputs & outputs. Hook these to the matching input/output of the VCR/DVD.
