Re: no signal!

Try plugging a VCR into video and audio plugs at rear (using RCA jacks - not video cable) see if set "sees" a signal now - when set to VIDEO.
If so, you know it's working (( and you can, if you wan,t run it this way )) -- and probably something wrong with tuner section.
If doesn't work that wayt.. ??? its fried.

GE GUIDE PLUS television coaxial cable

Contact the cable provider to know about the signal type they are transiting by it. If it is digital type, you must ahve a set top box to convert it to analogue signals, which your TV can process. It sounds so.

Can't change the channel on RCA TruFlat. It just has a blue screen and says "14-3"

That RCA TV has only an older analog tuner, so if you're still using it for off-the-air reception you'll need to be using it with a digital converter. I'm assuming you are, since you say there's a channel number 14-3 being shown. The only way you'll see such a number is if it's coming from a digital converter, which will be sending the signal to the TV on channel 3 or 4 (on the TV's internal tuner).

There are several possibilities. One is that the converter isn't changing channels when you use its remote control. This is often caused by weak batteries, so try a fresh set. If your model of converter has channel up/down buttons on it (some do, but many require the remote for everything), try changing the channel manually.

If the converter isn't changing channels, you should try rescanning. The channel memory may have gotten cleared or corrupted for some reason. Also be sure the antenna is properly connected. With digital broadcasting, no antenna means no picture, guaranteed.

If everything else seems to be correct and the converter isn't finding any channels, you'll need to replace it. Unless it's still covered by the manufacturer's warranty or you have a replacement plan from the seller, you will need to purchase a new converter. They weren't designed to be serviced.

GE Model 20GT360 TV and digital antenna problem

Are you connected to a digtal converter or just a digital antenna? If only to an antenna then yes you will most likely pick up one or two low power UHF stations that are still able to broadcast in analog.

I cannot get a signal with converter box and Philips indoor antenna

Try to manually enter the local DTV Station Channels, instead of letting the converter scan for channels. And try moving the antenna and then re-entering the DTV channel.

You should really have an external antenna that is matched to your local reception needs.

contact your local TV stations, their engineers will be more than happy to help.

I have installed a Digitalstream DTX9950 converter box with my TV attached to a rooftop antenna. I can turn the TV off and on with the DTX9950 remote, but I can't bring in any stations, other than the DT...

Are you using the coaxial cable to connect the converter box to the set, or have you hooked it up with rca type video cables? The latter are highly recommended if you want a better connection and have audio/video inputs on the back of your television. But you don't want both A/V & coaxial.
Also be aware that some older antennae will not pick up digital signals well. Try to use a coaxial cable all the way up to the antenna junction. Find out where most signals are broadcast from in your area and aim the antennae appropriately. (Use a compass.) See helpful link here. Your converter remote should have a signal strength button that you can use to check the various channel strengths. If you're using a coaxial link to the tv and have little signal strength, expect a poor picture. You'll also want to select the Mono option for Audio Output in the converter menu.
Finally, depending on the age of your set, if you're using rca video inputs, use the TV/Video button or the AV button on the TV or universal remote to switch the input from the channel on your TV to the video 1 setting (or whatever picks up the digital converter signal) so you'll get that clear signal. Then you can use the converter remote to change channels, adjust volume, etc.

DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3

I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

Receive one channel with Coverter Box

Make sure those 6 channels are also being broadcast in Digital format also, otherwise your converter box won't have a digital signal to convert for your TV. The switchover date is early next year I believe.

Trouble receiving local channels on TV using new Magnavox converter box

Your digital converter box probably does not have an analog pass through that allows the old analog channels to go through to the tv's analog tuner.

Digital to Analog signal

One of the problems with digital reception is if the signal is not strong enough for the converter box/or built in tuner on a new TV- you will not get any picture at all. If you followed all the directions-and the converter box shows no channels- then you do need a better antenna. I don't know how far you are from the broadcast antenna, but a good rule of thumb is if you live 10 miles away, buy an antenna that is good for twice that distance, or further. They are rated in miles of reception
