Do you have a cable box from a service provider? If so you may have to take the cable box back in and exchange it.

How do i get my Dynex TV to work on an antenna


Easy. First put up a good outside or wall antenna. Then run a coax cable (not flat lead wire) from the antenna to the tv. To do this you need to get a "balum" to go from the antenna to the coax wire. It's a small plastic 'transformer' (( about the size of your pinky finger)). The other end of the coax wire should have an 'F' connector put on it so it can screw into the F connection on the back of the tv set. Then get your remote and go to the input of your tv and change it to antenna input. Then do a channel scan. Let it finish scanning and it will let you know how many channels it picked up. If you're in a big city then you may pick up as many as 100 or more channels. If you're in the country, you may only pick up about 5 channels! If you need more channels then go back to Home Depot or Lowes and get an 'antenna amplifier'. Hopefully one that has about 25db gain. Most only have about 10db gain but the higher the number the better. It should be put inline between the tv and the antenna so you'll need another coax cable for the amplifier to the tv. The wire that comes from the antenna goes directly to the 'input' of the amplifier. Then from the 'output' of it to the tv. You'll love it once it's done and it's cheaper than cable or any other paid service!

Unable to get picture. How to you get it to pick


If your using cable TV then you will have to connect an aerial/coax cable between your decoder and your TV. Usually the VCR channel on your TV is used to get the picture

I can't scan DTV channels on my vizio 52''


do you have antenna or cable? if you have antena hook directly to the coax, go to menu, TV, tuner and pick antenna and scan. If you have cable hook directly to your coax repeat the previous step but pick cable instead of antenna. Notice if you have a cable box, you will not need to scan for channel since it will be on channel 3, 4 or any other input you may use.

How to connect an dvd to old tv


they make a small box called an RF modulator. It takes the audio/video signals and turns them into a signal the coax can read. You can pick one up at electronic stores. There usually about 15-25 $.

Auto Search for Local channels not responding


Hi elmergdavis,
Check and make sure your tv is set to CABLE and not to AIR or ANTENNA. This setting is usually just above the Auto Search utility on the meNU.
Let me know what you find and I can provide further assistance.

The channel information/display won't stop popping up every few seconds.


What you all need to do is get away from a coax cable connection. If you have a cable box, or satellite box, take the coax cable off and use red, white, n yellow rca composite cables to connect your recievers to the tv. if you dont have a cable box, either get one, or get a converter box and use a tuner outside of the tuner within the unit. The tuners in those tv's are built to show you when you experience signal fluctation(which is normal with a coax cable) and thats why the box keeps popping up on its own. good louck to you all with this problem
