My 3 year old Magnavox 42 ''popped''

My 3 year old Magnavox 42'' plasma (w/ATSC/QAM Tuner), made a loud ''pop'' noise when I turned it on, then all different color dots dance all over the screen. Still has sound and can change the channels. Can anyone tell me what might have happened and is it worth repairing?

It sounds like you had a failure on the "X "and or " Y " boards. It is repairable but not cheap. it couild run a easy 700.00 to 900.00 or more if problems are across both boards. the only way to find out is to get a NAP Service Man out there and take a peek. There is also a possibility that the Plasma Panel was damaged when it failed. This would render this unit not worth repairing.
Hope this helps,

Ematic AT102 How do you program it to receive the cable channels when no cable box is needed?


Unfortunately, the Ematic AT102 does not have a tuner for cable television. It only has a ATSC (digital over-the-air) tuner. You need to connect it to an TV antenna and then search for channels. Depending on where you live, you may need an external antenna to get sufficient signal strength to receive local channels. See http://www.tvfool.com for signal strength information in your area.

Older cable signals are NTSC (same as analog over-the-air). Newer digital cable is QAM. (Some channels are broadcast as clear QAM which don't need a cable box with some tuners/TVs.)

To record your cable, you will need a different type of DVR/set-top box. An old VCR or DVD recorder with an NTSC tuner would work to record analog cable. There are a few ATSC converter boxes that also support clear QAM. This is one of the models: http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=CM-7003 .

I wish that I had better news for you. Other options are available for NTSC, ATSC or QAM tuners. Please add a comment with more information about your cable service if you'd like extra information on these options.

I have a nspdp42 plasma and i cant affort cable and want free tv. is there a analog to digital converter in the unit already? the model # is 801rmd2237770 Thank you


The Insignia NS-PDP42 Plasma HDTV has a built in ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner.

In short, yes, it does have a digital converter built in, but you will need a antenna capable of receiving digital broadcasts. You can find these at Walmart for $15 to $60.

I have a Jensen TV, Model Number TS2050J. I need to know if it has a QAM tuner built in.


Hi.
No, your tv is an older model sdtv with an analog only NTSC tuner.

Newer model have an ATSC/Qam digital tuner, but not your model.

This means that if you want to watch tv, you'll have to get a converter box. It will have the ATSC/QAM tuner i it, and it converts the signal into lower definition NTSC, and then sends it to the tv through either coax cable, or rca cables.
Once in a great while you might even find one that has s-video output, but those usually are expensive.

I hope this helps you out.

Fault at its main digital board. Short circuited component/s at it. Contact any service technician; or the authorized service center. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

In most cases, the main board might have to be replaced. If so, a software [firmware] update too might be necessary.

52G786 ATSC Tuner no longer works


I have the same exact model tv...Love it...ATSC tuners is in definition an Analog tuner. As the broadcasting companies change over to Digital broadcasting before the deadline in Febuary 2009 more and more local or Non-Digital chanels are becoming obsolete. You would have to purchase a converter box for your tv if your not planning on getting cable. Another way to gois if you have an old cable line running through you house (no incomming cable) plug you tv into that jack. That also acts as a antenna. The sweet part of all this is that your tv do have a QAM tuner or Digital tuner built in just need that digital antenna to pair it up.
