If my wireless goes down will my tv not work. i have trouble with my service where i live

If your TV signal is internet based, then no it won't work to watch regular TV. But if you have satellite or cable TV, it shouldn't effect it... Also it shouldn't effect your ability to watch dvd's... The TV set itself will work fine without internet signal.

How do i get a signal. my tv keeps saying no signal

Check all the cable connections, assuming the ariel is ok, any connection with a screw type should be investigated, ie undo & make sure it is a good connection, 9 times out of 10 it will be 1 of these, especially if you are 1 of those people who remove the arial cable when you go on hols, start there.

If the problem is same with different input devices and you have ensured there are no loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable and sockets, the TV needs servicing.

My insignia tv shows a NO DATA BASE error on screen. How do i fix this.

Try these tips:

Connecting your Cable box through Coaxial to the TV.
1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the coaxial connectors.
2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- You need to set the TV in a specific channel for receiving the signal from the Cable Box, usually they are channel 3 or 4. Please press in the TV's remote those channels numbers and check if you are receiving signal about the Cable Box in any of them.
4- If you do, afterwards remember to continue using the Cable Box remote to change the channels instead of the TV one.

Connecting your Cable Box through RCA to the TV
1- Turn on the TV and the Cable Box, secure all the RCA wires.
2- Press the "TV" button to be sure you are in the TV mode.
3- Press the "Input" button to go to AV1 or AV2 depending where the Cable box is connected.
4- You should be receiving signal instantaneously after you have changed the Input and keep using the Cable Box remote for changing the channels.

Cable won't work on new tv

When I plug in all of the cables the tv says no signal. I have tried it on all different input settings and my cable provider tried sending me a stronger signal. Could I be doing something wrong and is there anything else I can try?On the back the tv has no receptor what else is there i can use?

Hooking actual live coaxial from Cable Co. to Insignia Converter Box ...

Based on the specs that I have read I am going to say you cannot hook up cable to the converter. Best thing to do would be to call cable company that provides service there and see if it was turned off on the billing side they probably just didn't come out and disconnect from the pole. That might give you service but missing some features such as tv guide channel. Now some tv's have tv guide built into them and maybe in the move that feature on the tv was turned off it they were using it that way before. Here is what the specs say about that converter:

Use this digital-to-analog converter to convert digital TV broadcast signals to analog signals on analog TVs with antenna-based reception.

Won't keep digital signal

If you're connected to a digital cable box, I would try using the external component connections and bypass the TV's tuner. If all you have is straight cable coming into the house, it could be the cable signal itself or a defective tuner in the TV assuming all the menu settings are correct in the TV.

When you say "struggles to get a signal" I assume you are receiving HD programming over the air using HDTV antenna. If so, try to re-orient the antenna. Better yet, go to this website
type in your address and it will provide you with the best antenna and antenna positioning based on your location.

If you are receiving HD programming via cable or dish, contact your service provider and they can best resolve your issue if the problem is beyond the loose cable connection in your TV's tuner input.
