SOURCE: Dynex TV Model DX-LCD32-09 Does Not Pick Up DTV Signals

Yeah I have the same model and there's no built in antenna. You have to use an external. I used to work for the geek squad in a Best Buy store and I can tell you from experience that that salesman may or may not have actually known that there's no antenna built in. It's not uncommon for them to tell small lies like that to get you more interested in the product. I witnessed it a million times before I finally quit because they wanted me to be the same way.

SOURCE: broken coax cable connector/DTV/TV Cable/Antenna

Hi,
Tuner will be replaced because Coax Connector is fixed part of tuner and next problem is that tuner is not available as spare part, it is mounted on tv main board so main board will be replaced to solve Coax Connector problem OR check with local tv repairman if he can do some thing with connector.
Below image is main board of tv and tuner is marked with yellow circle to have better idea.
Hope this will help.
Thanks.

How do I watch normal tv on my audiosonic television ?


That depends upon which source your "normal" TV is connected. If you have a cable box using a coax cable, then you will either select the DTV source if the cable box uses digital output or a digital over-the-air antenna, and ATV source if the box is using analog signals or if you are using an analog over-the-airwaves antenna. If you are using a cable box but have an HDMI cable connecting it to the set, then you need to choose HDMI1 or 2 as appropriate. If you have a box that uses the red-black-yellow RCA cables, then select the AV input. Remember that for ATV and DTV inputs from a cable box, you usually have to tune the set to either channel 3 or 4 and use the box to change the channels.

I cannot change from the ATV to the DTV. ANY clues on how to do this??


Got to know the model number of your tv. If the set is only atv then you would need a decoder box to convert digital signal from antenna or cable company to analog channel or to composite input on the tv.

Why won't my new Vizio DTV work on an antenna without the digital box?


Do you have the antenna aimed correctly and the correct antenna for the distance between your location and the stations? Check antennaweb.org and tvfool.com for the directions to the stations you should be able to receive. Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the station list. TVfool gives the stations you should get with various different types of antennas. Tall trees and buildings will block signal strength so consider the environment around you.

With digital signals, if you do not have enough signal strength for a given tuner, the channel will not come in. An amplifier may help you get the signal, particularly if the signal is shared to several devices. Failure of an amplifier or lightning surge protection can stop the signal from reaching the TV. A surge through the antenna can damage the tuner.

A damaged cable can also be a source of a problem. Check the outside portion of the wire as well as the interior wires. Replace any that have damaged insulation or ends.

For this TV, if you have done a channel scan with the TV set to the Input TV/DTV, and the Signal Source set to Antenna. Turn the antenna and then set the Additional Scan to On. (Menu > TV > Channels > Additional Scan.) Then do another channel scan.

After the DTV switch, should I be placing the cable cord into the dtv output to receive all the DTV channels? Protron PLTV 3250 is the set I have and it doesn't seem to get the DTV channels like my other...


Your question is confusing. If you have cable, you don't need a DTV converter box.

If your cable company has switched to digital cable, they will provide you a box, and the cable should go from the wall into the box, then into your TV.

If you don't have cable but instead rely on an antenna, then the wire will go from the antenna into the DTV box, then from the DTV box into the back of the TV. If you're using a regular coaxial cable to go from the DTV box into the television, the TV should be set to channel 3. If you're using the red-yellow-white RCA wires between the DTV box and the television, the TV must be tuned to "Aux," "Line In," "Input Select," or whatever it's labeled on your particular set.

My dtv keep saying nosignal antina hooked up .protron tv was working fine ran scan station. stop playing


dtv needs a strong signal to keep track of the channel. The antenna is good inside the room but tends to be affected for interferences. to catch signal (as in the past with ear rabbit antena) is difficult inside the room. and roof antenna is better but needs a good installation. the cable channels can work digital without the dtv. Is hard to give you any idea besides this ones because i don't know how the set up[ is in your case problem, but i hope i could help you a little. Now if the antenna is rasonable good and still having problems with your channels the suspect the dtv failure.
