It may sound obvious, but you should just press the number 1 button for channel 1 and there you (should) go. If not, try pressing the AV button and it might go through the AV inputs until you get back to the antenna channels.

Need to know how to remove a regular antenna from a 1996 Toyota Tacoma. It is not a power antenna.


Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996
Antenna - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

If your antenna mast is the type where you can unscrew the mast from the fender, simply do so with a pair of pliers. Most damaged antennas are simply the result of a truck wash or similar mishap, in which the mast is bent.

Manual Antenna
  1. Disconnect the antenna cable at the radio by pulling it straight out of the set. Depending on access, this may require loosening the radio and pulling it out of the dash.
  2. Working under the instrument panel, disengage the cable from its retainers.
On some models, it may be necessary to remove the instrument panel pad to get at the cable.
  1. Outside, unsnap the cap from the antenna base.
  2. Remove the screw(s) and lift off the antenna, pulling the cable with it, carefully.
To install:
  1. When reinstalling, make certain the antenna mount area is clean and free of rust and dirt. The antenna must make a proper ground contact through its base to work properly.
  2. Install the screws and route the cable into the cab. Make certain the cable is retained in the clips, etc.
  3. Connect the cable to the radio; reinstall the radio if it was removed.

Power Antenna Mast
The power antenna system contains a relay. If the power antenna is inoperative, the relay is the first place to look. The actual motor rarely fails.
The power antenna mast is replaceable on the Pick-Up and 4Runners. If the mast is damaged or broken, proceed as follows:
  1. Perform this repair with the battery cables connected. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  2. Remove the antenna nut.
  3. If equipped with a CD player, press the AM and FM buttons on the receiver and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  4. For non-CD player units, press the AM button and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  5. The antenna motor will run, unwinding the mast from the spool. have an assistant guide the mast so it doesn't fall and damage the bodywork. When fully extended, the mast will be released. Remove it, and leave the ignition in the ACC position.
To install:
  1. Insert the new cable so that the teeth face the rear of the vehicle. Feed the cable into the motor until the cable reaches the bottom, about 12 in. (30cm).
  2. Have an assistant ready and prepared to guide the cable. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK . The motor will run, winding the cable onto the spool and drawing the antenna down into the mount.
  3. If the cable does not wind, twist the cable at the top of the housing; the part at the bottom may have turned while being pushed down the hole.
  4. Once wound onto the spool, install the antenna nut even if the antenna is not fully retracted. Test the antenna elevation and retraction; the mast will eventually retract fully.
Hope helped with this (remember rated this post).

Magnavox tv has cable channels 2-13 only. Lost original remote. Using a universal remote. Tried to auto program. It started scanning but when channel 14 came around, just fuzzy snowy picture all through...


The set needs to be switched from antenna to cable in the setup menu. It is capable of either antenna reception or cable reception. Ch 2-14 are the same frequency for antenna and cable but above 14 they are different. That is why the picture is stoping at 14. After you switch it to cable auto program again. Thanks for using fixya.

Replace antenna


Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

Tacoma radio antenna


Use an antenna wrench to remove the chrome nut (I found a wrench on JC Whitney's website). Once the nut's removed, do the following (copied from the factory service manual):

REMOVE ANTENNA ROD

(a) Turn the ignition switch to ”LOCK” position.
(b) Press the ”AM, FM” buttons on the radio receiver, and simultaneously
turn the ignition switch to ”ACC” position.
HINT:
�� The rod will extend fully and be released form the motor
antenna.
�� After removing the antenna rod, leave the ignition switch
on ”ACC” position.
NOTICE:
To prevent body damage when the antenna rod is released,
hold the rod while it comes out.
2. Auto Antenna Models:
INSTALL ANTENNA ROD
(a) Insert the cable of the rod until it reaches the bottom.
HINT:
�� When inserting the cable, the teeth on the cable must face
toward the rear of the vehicle.
�� Insert the antenna approx. 300 mm (11.8 in.).
(b) Wind the cable to retract the rod by turning the ignition
switch to ”LOCK” position.
HINT:
�� If the ignition switch is already in ”LOCK” position, do step
1 (c) first, then turn the ignition switch to ”ACC” position.
�� In case the cable is not wound, twist it, as shown in the
illustration.
�� Even if the rod has not retracted fully, install the antenna
nut and inspect the antenna rod operation. It will finally retract
fully.
(c) Inspect the antenna rod operation by pressing the radio
wave band select buttons.

You can buy a new power mast online (ex. Discount Toyota Parts) for about $30.

Switching from cable to an antenna


well first off, on 2-9-09 the off air antenna will be eliminated. and you must have a converter box to receive signal. Now on the set that you have, you must check and see if its a dual tuner. NTSC or ATSC and still try to run the auto search on cable and see how many channels you get. Most Tvs only have cable setting and not off air. so try it and see.

You should have two antenna inputs A & B. Most commonly the RF or TV output on the back of the cable box is connected to antenna A and the TV has to be set for channel 3 or 4 depending on which station is not available in your area. If you don't get a picture on 3 or 4 then switch the cable box to antenna B or find the switch on the remote that allows you to remotly switch antenna inputs. If your TV has a connection that says "cable out" don't use that one as that is for a more complex setup. I hope this helps you.
