Consult your TV's owner manual and enter "set up mode" to switch the RF or Antenna input from: CATV / Cable to: Antenna / Off Air. Then, allow the TV to scan VHF & UHF for signals strong enough to "tune in". You may need to upgrade your antenna in order to collect enough signal to display video properly. Make sure that your TV has a digital tuner (ATSC) as the old analog tuners (NTSC) have no signal to tune since broadcasters were forced to digital transmitters by the FCC years ago.

Use the site linked below to help you select an antenna that will allow you to receive all signals possible at your location - without buying more antenna than you need.

How do I get my to work with an antenna


If its a standard analog tv made before the digital changeover it will no longer work directly connected to an antenna as there are no more analog tv transmissions,to use it you will have to get a digital to analog converter box to connect between the tv & antenna it will convert the incoming digital signal to analog so the tv can work again,the same goes fore vcr's they will no longer record directly from an antenna.Some cable systems still supply the cable signal in analog older tv's will still work without boxes on these systems.

Replaced power supply and the monitor shows no signal and goes to sleep mode. Checked all connections, tried another monitor, any other suggestions?


Hi!

It seems like the problem is within the computer, rather than the monitor itself...
Please follow my tips to resolve your problem.

Unfortunately, this is a standard problem, as when your laptop goes into sleep mode, it shuts off power to the secondary monitor, without giving it the signal to go into sleep mode. You could try digging around your settings, but most likely you'll just need to turn off the monitor when you're not using it.

Monitor will not awake from sleep mode. Pilot light is amber when asleep. If the monitor is turned off pilot light goes from amber to off or black or nothing. Turning the monitor back on the pilot light...


That means your monitor is not receiving a signal from your video card.

A couple things to check:
*Make sure your cable is ok - unplug and replug the cable to see if it is a loose connection. Or try a different cable.

*Make sure your computer is not in sleep mode - Move your mouse or otherwise ensure your computer is awake and sending a video signal

*If you have another computer, try the monitor on the other system and see if it works.

Cannot get TV to work on antenna...In menu I set cable to off, then initiate autoprogram but tv says "no signal". My antenna has a bulit in digital to analog converter. Suggestions?


Must buy a Digital converter box and to install it seperatly to devert back to tv anlogue tv signal to make the tv to work.Tv antena inverter alone can't convert analogue signal to digital signal only can give basic tv antena for better antena reception.Tries websites like Ebay.com,Amazon.com to buy a stand alone digital converter box to install and that didigal antena install and auto scan again u should able to get all the free DTV air stations.

No signal...deep sleep


Go to main menu, turn off sleep mode, then find the "autoprogram" feature and select it.
THis will program all available channels, just make sure you tv is set to AIR for regular tv and CATV if you have cable.

The thunderstorm may have reset the television. Hopefully there is no damage done to the tuner

Hand held casio tv vs digital signal


I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that goes to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
 
If your battery-operated TV does not have an external antenna jack, instructions for connecting it to a converter box can be found at

There are a few battery-operated converter boxes available, but for do-it-yourselfers, this web page also contains instructions for building a 12-volt converter box power supply.

Phillips tv


Are you connected using R,G,B (component) cables? Check them to make sure they are in firmly - if so, then try a new set - that may very well fix the rolling issue. (Unless the rolling is caused by poor antenna reception).

Press "Sleep" on the original remote control for this TV if you still have it until the TV says "Sleep OFF".

If no strong TV signal is detected, this unit goes into sleep mode, which may explain Tuner B shutting off after 5 minutes.
