Just a general question

Does this tv have a digital tuner?  I am thinking about bidding on it on e-bay but not if it will not work in a couple years with the new standards.

Hello, If you are using this combo with cable and the channels just coming through, you will need to replace the tuner(mounts vertically on the main board and it's located directly behind the cable/antenna connector). If you are trying to use this TV with a set of rabbit ears, the free signal channels turnes digital last year and that is why you get nothing. The tuner as an assembly is still available from a couple of sources: and Union Electronics(

I am trying to hook up a digital labs, 19'' lcd tv/dvd combo and when i do the initial channel scan it doesnt pick up anything from the satelite at all, i have hooked them toghther anyway i can think of...

Most HDTVs have ATSC, QAM and NTSC (analog) tuners. It sounds like yours does not have an NTSC (analog) tuner. QAM tuners only pick up digital cable channels. You may need to switch to your cable company's digital service if your not already on it. Call your cable company for further info

I plugged in the tv and i only have fuzz is there a way to do a channel scan

If the set is more than a couple of years old it's won't have digital tuning, so without a DTV converter box the fuzz is all you're going to get. It won't be able to pick up any TV signals on its own now that conventional analog broadcasts have ended. You'll need to get a converter (and possibly a new antenna as well), hook it to the TV and follow the setup and channel scan instructions it comes with.

If the set is new enough that it has a digital tuner already built-in, use the TV's setup menu to verify the thing is properly set for digital broadcasts and scan for channels. The on-screen displays generally make the steps clear what buttons you need to press to start the scan. This is assuming you have the remote control available or that there is a front-panel menu button on your set. If you've lost your remote, there may be no way to get into the setup without it.

You can probably find a manual for your model online at Sharp's website. If you'll post a followup comment with the complete model number, I'll see if I can provide any more information for you.

Cannot get tuner to work - dvd works fine

Analog TV broadcasting is done now. Unless your TV has a digital tuner already built in, you'll need a converter box to get any channels now. The DVD player part will still work, as you've already discovered. If your TV does have a digital tuner, try going through the setup and scan for channels.

Do I need a dtv digital converter box for my Symphonic SC313D 13 inch tv?

Pretty much a hoax on those diverter boxes. People ran out and bought them thinking that won't have reception. I have many years in maintenance and several years in nursing homes with different tv's in every room. Not once have I needed a box to pick up channels with or without cable. I myself get 16 channels with rabbit ears and thats enough for me. And I do own a combo as well and it has simple antenna and does me just fine. Depending on your location, the old tv antennas we use to put on our houses...they work amazing! Might be able to snag one on a freecycle or craigslist site. Good luck! :)

Does this have a digital tuner?

Look here, there is a phone were you can call and ask, as you can read, this article says nothing about that feature so I think is not digital ready, is a verry good combo and I never see one in my shop or other shop in my area that means is a good one, if you live in US or in a US posesion as Pueerto Rico the federal gob. will give you a $40 dollar value to buy a digital to analog converter......good luck and rate me
