Digital ready TV locks up on channel 3 only

My parents have a digital ready TV connected to an outside antenna. If they select channel 3 the TV picture freezes and the TV completely locks up. The only fix is to turn off the TV and turn it back on. There are no problems unless they tune to channel 3. Any thoughts?

How to install indoor digital tv antenna to a lcd tv & pickup digi channels


First, the LCD TV has to have a digital tuner in it. Older ones may not. If it does, then you attach the antenna connector to the TV connection that is marked TV IN or CABLE. Then, in the TV's menu, you would need to ensure that the digital tuner is selected. Once that is done, then, still in the menu, perform an "ON AIR" channel scan to find and lock in whatever digital channels that the antenna can detect.

I dont have a remote and im trying to set up a digital tv antenna but the only channels im getting is 3 and all the video inputs. How to i program channels


Hello,

Usually channel 3 is picked up on a channel scan when there is an input device connected to the TV via a Coaxial Cable, thus using only channel 3 on the TV itself and using the Digital converter box to tune in the channels.

The TV will need to be Digital ready to connect only a Digital Antenna to it and programmed to receive the Digital Broadcasts over the air. If you are certain that this TV is Digital Ready (TV manufactured from 2009 to the present) you can use the menu button on the top, side, or front of the television, then use the channel / volume buttons to move around the menu, and the input button as the enter button.

You will want to select Antenna (ATSC) signal before starting the auto program so the TV will be able to recognize the Digital Channel Broadcasts.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Scott

How do I get channels on my TV


If you TV is HD ready (digital), then you need to connect the antenna to the unit so the tuner can identify the channels. If your TV is an older analog unit, you will need to use an analog to digital converter. The antenna will connect to the converter, and the converter will connect to the TV. The converter will tune the channels and send them to the TV on channel 3 or 4, depending upon the converter.

Connecting a sansui 13 inch to a converter box


1) Connect the converter box to a good digital TV antenna and position the antenna as high and as close to a window as possible.
2) Set the converter box 'output switch' to an unused channel for your area. (Usually 2, 3 or 4.)
3) Connect the output of the converter box to the 'antenna input' on the TV.
4) Turn on both units and set the TV channel to the same output channel selected above.
5) Now select TV channels using the converter box remote only. The TV should receive all converted channels on the preselected channel.
6) Adjust the TV antenna for the best reception for all channels.

Apex digital250A digita tv converterl


The outside antenna gets threaded onto the RF connector that says antenna in. Then either connect another RF cable to the tv and select ch 3 or 4 (switch on back of box) or use the yellow,red and white cable to the tv. If you used the three cables use the remote to select the input you used. Just advance the channels until you find the picture. If you used the RF cable, just tune to channel 3 or 4 whichever you used. Now do a channel scan with the remote that came with the converter. Once that is done you will have to use that same remote to change digital channels.

Make sure you have a good connection from antenna to TV. Check antenna and cable and cable connection to TV. Select DIGITAL button on TV remote when wanting HD channels. Remember HD channels are always digital. Also, any given TV station may not be broadcasting in HD at a given time. They can broadcast in digital but in standard definition sometimes. Your TV has a built-in DVB-T tuner. Try executing a channel scan to pick up all available channels. On-screen menus go to Digital Setup, then Digital Tuning, you can auto-tune or manual tune channels. The TV should take a few min. to scan thru available channels and store the channels its finds. Check with anyone in your area to see if they get HD channels (it is possible to be outside of the range of some TV stations) Your TV is a 2006 model and should still be compatible with local digital TV broadcasts but keep in mind digital signals could change in the near future (DVB-T2) and you may need a tuner/converter box to make the TV compatible.

I connected an antenna to the tv that i bought from walmart $30. But tv cannot find any channels at all.


If you live in the city you should be able pick up to one three channels on the indoor antenna, but if you are outside of the general viewing area you won't pickup anything. Antenna's of this sort have a very short range when it comes to tv signals, it is also possible that your antenna is not digital ready, which means any station broadcasting a digital signal you won't be able to receive.

The digital signal must be strong in order for the set to lock onto it. From what you described it is weak, therefor it will not recognize it with auto program. If your on cable, call your provider. If your using an outside antenna, check position and possibly need a larger one.
