Did you rescan your stations yet? When they made the transition, many, if not most, TV stations changed numbers on the dial. Enter the menu on your TV and manually tell it to rescan the stations. This should resolve the problem.

Ive retuned, re-set, unpluggest and plugged back in and i recieve no channeks still, been like this for months


What is your TV source? The Polaroid LCD-2000 only has a NTSC (analog) tuner. Most OTA stations switched to ATSC signals a few years ago and a converter box is required to watch the TV. (A few low power TV stations still broadcast in NTSC but you need to be fairly close to the transmitter to receive the channel.) If you have cable, check if they have migrated to digital cable (QAM for unencrypted channels). If that is the case, you'll need a cable box.

With a digital-to-analog OTA converter box, you can still lose station reception due to the signal strength cliff. Depending on your area, you may need an external antenna or to check the direction of the antenna. I know I have to rotate the outdoor antenna every so often. It shifts in high wind. Even if the antenna only moves 5 degrees, we will lose the signal for half of the stations.

I hope this helps.

How do I change my service from analog to H D?


Most LCD tv's built in the last 4 years are HD compatible. Most cheaper brands tv's are 720 HD and some are full HD 1080 a little more money. Since their is no more analog broadcast as June 2009 all tv's manufactured around 2006 started incorperating the digital tuner (DTV) along with the analog so that the tv would still receive analog broadcast while the digital transistion was ongoing. All tv's with a Cathode Ray Tube (glass picture tube) are not HD compatible. First you will have 1 or 2 ports on the tv ethier on the side panel or rear panel of the set. They a marked HDMI 1 HDMI 2 or HDMI A HDMI B. If you have these ports your set is Hd Compatible. You may also need to upgrade your cable or satelllite equipment and subscribe to a HD package to be able to get HD service. You will need a HDMI cable to connect your cable or satellite receiver to the HDMI port on you tv. Call your local cable or satellite provider for options to upgrade to HD. Most over the air broadcast stations depending on your area transmit some stations in HD free of charge. A good quality outdoor antenna works best to give you stable signal. You may need to change the settings of the tv as some sets default to the 480i this is the standard digital signal.

No getting digital reception


With this model tv, if you are using the coaxial connection on the tv to receive local stations you will not get any. The tv is digital, but not the tv tuner. As of June or July 2009 that tv will no longer receive analog channels from local stations as they are now all digital. You need a digital cable converter box to convert the signals to analog. *** This is if only if you are using the coaxial input.***

Can't fix polaroid tv help!


Well a couple of questions if I may.
1) How do you have the TV connected to the Cable box?
A) Composite cable 'usually a yellow colored RCA to another Yellow RCA connector' and then plugged into your TV's Video input. This will only give you 3x4 video aspect as its only limited to 480 lines of resolution. This would explain why you only get a 3x4 aspect.
B) Component cables, Usually three cables 'RCA connector's 'Red, Green and Blue' colored ends.
This will give you output resolutions of 720i up to 1080P which is your High Definition outputs and will fill your screen from top to bottom and side to side if your cable box can actually receive High Def. It should since all local Television stations had to go to Digital HD last June 09.
Happy Thanks Giving,
Blessings always,

After the digital transition, I lost one of the local channels. When I rescan, all of the other local channels come in no problem. ABC Channel 12 in Flint Michigan is gone. I had it no problem on...


Try the recommendations in a document posted on the FCC site (http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DOC-291403A1.doc)

Also be aware the several stations have had problems with the transition. Some changed frequencies on which they were transmitting and encountered area coverage issues that didn't meet their expectations. They have been working with the FCC to remedy the problems and many stations have temporarily increased output power to compensate for the issues. Some of these stations may be difficult to receive and you may need to get larger antenna. If you are still having problems call the FCC DTV transition hotline at 1-888-CALLFCC (1-888-225-5322) or the TV station for advice.

I have a Sony Walkman TV/Weather/FM/AM SRF-M37V. I need to know


The radio won't get TV sound anymore after the switch. And no, nobody is selling a digital receiver for the TV sound yet. All this radio is good for now is regular broadcasting and the weather band.
