I have a palsonic TFTV826HD tv and when i came home from a 2 week holiday , i am not able to receive the ABC and ch 10 stations , others i have , i reset and did the auto tuning


Do you use an digital antenna receiver which gives you a couple basic air channels for free Or is it through a cable company? It could be the weather conditions or the antenna could be unplugged or cable wire could be loose or cable company could have certain channels being fixed.
. We have a big Element HD tv flat screen and use an digital antenna receiver and when receiver is unplugged or if our outside/entry way doors are open (receiver antenna is outside) none or some of channels won't work..
Hope this kinda helps :/ :) let me know.at least I tried lol

WHY CANT I GET HD CHANNELS ON MY ELEMENT ELECTRONICS 32 IN HD TV


To get HD channels you need to have a cable/satellite box that can receive HD channels AND you have to connect that box to the TV with either an HDMI cable or component jacks. A normal cable/satellite box won't work; neither will a coax antenna cable or consolidated video (yellow RCA) plug. Hope this helps!

I have Sony Bravia X Series 46" Full HD. The Picture froze during a TV show last night. After that it says it cant pick up anything from any channell. It works if you just play DVD's. I've tried...


you will have to check the terms of the warranty, you might have to bring it to where you bought it. Also, if its to expensive, for the age of the unit, you might end up with a new tv.

HDTV unable to get HD Channels w/ Antenna


The problem could be your antenna. Many people will buy small indoor tv antennas and wonder why they're not getting the signal that they want or the channels that they expect. Its not your fault. Digital signal is in two formats: UHF AND VHF. Some antennas only receive UHF. But many of the low band channels are VHF, so 1) you need an antenna that will receive those signals and 2) you need to know how and where to install that antenna and 3) you need to know if you need a signal amplifier depending on your coaxial cable length and number of connections. I recommend visiting dennys antenna service (no I don't work there and I have never purchased anything from that website. He just has an excellent informational article with a great deal of "how to" on his pages.). http://www.dennysantennaservice.com/2029710.html This should be of great help to you. Happy viewing =)

Tv suddenly shows no audio and no video for digital channles only yet all digital channles are detected durring the channel search


Sounds like you have a bad signal from the antenna or the cable. Unlike analog TV if the signal level drops below a certain level you loose the picture and sound completely. The fact that digital channels are detected during channel search does not mean they have a good signal. Try moving the antenna about.

I cannot select Channel 10


What kind of antenna is used. Outdoor antenna or indoor antenna. The main board only detect the signal with certain level, if the signal strength is not enough, it will pass by. Since the change of signal from analog to digital this problem got more depending on your location. You need to use a booster-antenna to over come this problem.

New TV doesn't register being HD ready during test TV stations do


Try going into the setup menu and make sure it is set to antenna then do a channel program. You don't need to wait for a test there are plenty of channels already there. Both digital and analog channels are still available so you will still a message that you are not receiving digital if you are putting it on an analog channel. The channel number has to have a dot(.) in it like 8.1, 24.1 If there is no dot you are on an analog channel

Basic broadcast channel plan vs. indoor digital antenna


HD tv is picky about the signal. You either get a signal or you don't get a signal (no static or snow). It really depends on your location as to where you live. There are ways that you can find out how close you are to a transmitter by checking on Wikipedia for each channel in your market. It will give you precise position as to where it is. It will also tell you if they will broadcast in 1080i or 720i. Check the antenna specs to see what the range is on the rca.com website.

Using an over the air antenna I get all channels but one.


I experience the same thing on a day to day basis. The key, is location of the antenna. Depending on where your antenna is located, determines if u can recieve local CBS analog v. digitial. I actually tried sticking aluminum foil to my old rabbit ear antenna legs. to my surprise, I even picked up digital channel I never knew existed. Besides, when the signal transmit in Digital, u are already prepared. Your local CBS afilliate station will be accesable on maybe 2 or 3 channels. example:

Channel 10 analog

Channel 10-1, 10-2, 10-3 digital HD will all broadcast the same programming.

hope this helps u out.

You should verify that you are not just simply losing reception from a fault in the antenna.

If the signal is okay from the antenna, it is possible that the TV is having a failure in its tuner or IF sectons just to mention a starting point.
