Question about Polaroid 1511-TLXB 15.4 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

No signal without a digital convertor box.

I get "no signal" message when I hook up my Polaroid 1511-TLXB to a rooftop antenna. It works fine when hooked up to a digital tuner. The manual says it is equipped with a digital tuner. Why do I need a tuner to get a signal?

You must have a tuner, but the one built into the TV will work fine. Have you scanned for available channels after connecting your antenna?

Polaroid 15" HD Widescreen LCD 1511-TLXB, turn on, stays on for about 30 seconds to 1 minute and then screen goes black, no sound, no menu


Do you have to turn it back on with the remote after this?

If so, then you may have set a timer by accident through the menu system.

More information would be required.

Would like to record from my tv to my magnavox dvd/vcr combo box


If I understand your request right, You do not have cable or satellite box.
You can not record from your TV. You use the TV as a monitor from the dvd/vcr combo box. What the box receives is what shows on the TV. So you will have to have a digital convertor hooked to the (antenna in) dvd/vcr combo box, (antenna out to the tv antenna in) Depending on the antenna you are using that is on the other end of your cable-in coax connection this will hook to your antenna in on the digital convertor box. If your cable is hooked up and operating correctly and directly to the tv that is digital ready you probabbly have a good picture. When the vhf/uhf signal was transmitted you could go from the dvd/vcr to the tv with no problem. But now that the signal is digital and the tv is set for digital the dvd/vcr will not pass a digital signal to the tv. Best suggestion, you have to get a digital dvd/vcr receiver. If you have more question please contact me.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

I get poor recption on digital convertor box while watching satellite. But works fine for viewing local channels. JT


Digital converterboxes will down-convert all signals to 480p at best.  No converter box should be used with the satellite signal only antennas.
