No menu screen for Craig TV converter box

I have a Craig analog-digital TV converter box that was working before the June 12, 2009, broadcast change. Does not work now. I know I have to rescan the channels, but can't get it to rescan. Can't even get the menu to come up. The box will turn off and on, that's it. Nothing on the remote responds except the on/off button.

You have the set configured to display "text 1 or Text 2" in the closed captioning menu. You will need to turn closed captioning off to get rid of this box.

That means that there are solid state components on a printed circuit board that are soldered into place. If the set is a 13 inch it would not be feasable to drop any cash into it as there are 13 inch combo TV sets going for as little as 59 bucks. Good Luck

SOURCE: lcd tv digital tuner

Welcome to the world of off-the-air broadcasting!

First, be sure you have the TV set up correctly and that is in fact capable of digital tuning. Just because a set was sold as HDTV doesn't mean it has a digital tuner. Small TV sets weren't required to have digital tuning until shortly before the switch from analog. This set may require a digital adapter. If the set does have digital tuning, be sure you have "air" selected and not "cable" for your tuning mode. Also let the set scan for channels.

With digital broadcasting, signal strength is critical. In the analog days, a weak signal would give you a fuzzy picture, but you could see something; with digital, a weak signal means you see nothing at all. You may live in an area where the signal is too weak without using an amplified indoor antenna or putting one on the roof. Your location, other structures around and weather conditions all affect digital reception as well. Many people were (and still are) upset to find that they just couldn't get any channels at all once digital broadcasts took over.

I hope this has been helpful. Thanks for using Fixya!

Hi -

It's difficult to determine whether there is a fault with the TV or whether you are trying to switch channels on the wrong device. The blue screen indicates there is no signal, i.e. no TV station on that channel number.

Please could you answer the following quick questions to assist me in solving your problem

1. Do you have a cable/satellite receiver or digital converter connected to the TV?
2. If using one of the above, how is it connected to the TV?
3. Do you have any channels or are they all blue screen? If you have channels, which are they?

If you are using a cable or satellite receiver, you need to switch channels using the cable/satellite remote control unless the receiver is connected to the TV with a coaxial cable.

Please reply to me with the answers to the questions above by clicking on "Add a Comment" below your question.

Thanks,
BElectric

We are in Ghana we need frequency and we update to get more channel


Your flat panel TV is probably factory set to receive ATSC signals (Hi-def DIGITAL TV), whereas
Ghana may not have converted from analog TV (NTSC) yet.

Digital TV's cannot receive analog signals. I'm just guessing about whether or not Ghana supports
Hi-Def broadcasts - you'll have to check with (any) TV channel in Ghana. The Analog-to-digital
conversion is an expensive one at the broadcast end, and may not have happened yet in Ghana.

The US conversion took place by FCC mandate June 12, 2009.
There are available $65 (USD) digital-to-analog converters, but what you may need is an
analog-to-digital converter, which doesn't exist. Your Flat-panel TV amy have to wait until Ghana
begins broadcasting a Hi-Def TV channel.

For a HD antenna, a regular old rabbit ear-type antenna will do.

I hooked up an antenna but I don't get a signal...do I need a box for my DS24425?


vzalutka,
Your model TV was built with a analog receiver. Last year in June there was a change over to digital broadcasting which left your TV unable to view over-the -air signals without a digital decoder. You will need to purchase a box. I included two site to visit for more information.

Will a converter box that will change analog to digital work with cable as well and how?


The short answer is no. There is no need for a converter if you have cable. The converter is only required if you have an external entenna either on the roof or as rabbit ears. The broadcast (over air) standard will change as of June 12th to ATSC which is a digital standard from NTSC or analog. Dan

Mitsubisi tv CS- 40307 digital capable ?


If you are subscribing to cable or satellite TV, then the answer is no; they will continue to send an analog signal to your TV. However if you are using an antenna to receive your broadcast, then you will need a converter. Broadcast TV (over the air) has switched to a digital signal for most of the channels as of June 12th.
