Question about RCA F19207BC TV

Antenna hookup broke off

The metal connector where you hook up the antenna wire broke. I can get sound and a little picture but not clear. It is either snow or fuzz. I was wondering if it was possible to reconnect it or buy another antenna for the tv. we have directv so i am guessing that we need a wire antenna hook up.

Re: Antenna hookup broke off

You have to re solder the connector. The other solution is to patch from the Direct TV box AV out to the AV input on the back of the TV. This will bypass the tuner and give you a cleaner picture. However, if your TV does not have an external input you must re solder the connector. As easy as it may seem, this should be done by a qualified technician. Its not as easy as it looks and requires good soldering skills.

Durabrand 13' DU1301 TV problem: I can barely see the picture or hear anything because of intermittant snow. Sometimes the picture will roll as if we are back in the 70s. When I turned the tv on its...

The fault you describes is due to low signal strength. If tuner of the said TV is faulty, this type of snow interference will occur too. Just check for good firm connection to its antenna terminal. If it is Ok, check the continuity of the cable used with antenna. Check the orientation of yagi antenna if used outside. If all are OK, and nothing help you, just replace its tuner with same type and number. Tuner is a small metal box type component can be seen soldered directly to the main printed circuit board inside. Usullay, its one terminal will come out as antenna IN of the TV, to which you connects the external antenna or cable. You must have a concept of soldering and desoldering to replace it, and must have a knoledge in electronics too. OK.

Digital programming for rca j26L637 I can only get the local channels in digital, how can I get the rest (ie cable channels)

I have a similar tv. Its specs. aren't clear about that point. It can get OTA digital via antenna, but my component connectors show no picture when hooked up. I guess if your cable co. sends digital signal it should work in the digital antenna input. Same one as for the OTA signals, and they claim no cable box is required.
I am awaiting any help and it may also apply to your situation.
Take care, breezelow

Digital to analog converter box hookup

You will have to go to Radio Shack or Wall Mart, maybe Home Depot and get a matching transformer. That will have spade terminals on one end to connect to your tv and a round (75ohm male thread) to hook to your converter box.

Want to use DTV converter with my Toshiba 32AF42

If you're not on cable or satellite, you will need an antenna to get off-the-air reception. This TV does not have a DTV tuner, so you will also need the converter box. Depending on how far you are from the broadcasters' transmitters, you might be able to get away with an indoor antenna. Or you might find that you get few channels with the inside antenna and then you'll need something outdoors. There are a number of styles to choose from.

The antenna hooks to the converter box, and the converter box then goes to the TV. It can be hooked to the TV's "ANTENNA" connector. This should be covered in the set's manual where it shows you how to connect a regular antenna. With the box, your TV will always stay on channel 3 or 4 (depends on how you set up the box) and you'll change channels on the converter.

You can also connect the converter to the TV with audio and video cables like you would a DVD player. Most of the "coupon-eligible" converter boxes include direct video and audio output jacks. This gives you better picture and sound quality than by hooking it to the TV's antenna input.

Hooking up a converter box is like going back in time to when cable TV was new and you had to get a converter box from your cable company. Same way of hooking it up. Hope this helps!

Is the f38310 digital ready or do I need a converter?

No you do not need a converter box your television is digital ready. I use mine with a regular antenna and recieve many channels mostly High Definition and some analog you should notice that when your hooked to a quality HD antenna and assuming you are within broadcast distance you will be very surprised at the quality you will no longer have blury or faded pictures they will be crystal clear. This is because digital broadcast is either there or it's not. no inbetween although you can get what is called speckling thats where little dots pop up randomly the best olution to this problem is buy an additional antenna and run both antennas in through a splitter and this should clear that problem up redundancy is the answer

Hope this helps

Rabbit ears to digital conversion box

Your TV is old enough to have not only screw terminals for the antenna, but it sounds like it has separate UHF and VHF terminals as well. Pick up a 75-ohm to 300-ohm adapter (available at Radio Shack and probably most other places that sell TV's and antennas). This is a small cylinder-shaped part with a threaded antenna connector on one end, and a flat wire with two terminals on the other end. Connect the cable from the converter box to the round connector, hook the two terminals to the VHF antenna screws on your TV, put the TV on channel 3 and you'll be set.

You should also pick up a new antenna designed to work with digital broadcasting. If you use the old rabbit ears you were using before, you will probably not pick up all the channels available in your area.
