Do I need a TV Technician for NoSignal sign on digital TV ?

You need to check the aerial is still giving a signal and the leads are plugged in correctly. If they are and the signal is there then yes.

Tried to hook up a HD antenna but it won't work

HD is pretty critical and if a indoor antenna do not expect much or anything for that matter.

Can't get local channels even though it is hooked up to an antenna

You may need to elevate the height of the antenna or verify the wire connections. If you have done that, try another convertor.

I hooked up an indoor antenna to the TV and select ANT as an input from the menu. Still can't get any channels at all.

First try moving your antenna around (see the sites listed below for the direction to point the antenna to get a signal). If the antenna has an amplifier, try unplugging that unit. (When an amplifier fails, no signal gets transmitted.) Similarly if you have several TVs sharing one antenna, remove the splitter and directly connect the antenna to this Toshiba to make sure that it isn't causing the problem.

You may be in an area where an iindoor antenna may not work for you. Tall buildings and trees can scatter the signal to the point where a digital tuner can't get enough signal to "read" the data. Again use the results from the sites listed below to check what stations are likely to be received in your area.

Different TVs have different tuner sensitivities. An amplifier may help bring in enough signal to get the channels. (Signal loss is inevitable. However, if the signal is sufficiently poor, an amplifier may give you more noise and won't help.)

There are two sources for a site specific list of channels: and . Antennaweb assumes an external antenna and is very conservative in the list of channel that you should receive. (It lists two channels from one transmitter in my area.) Tvfool will indicate the channels that you should get with different antennas (indoor, outdoor, amplified signals).

A rare issue can be that the tuner in the TV has failed. The only way to check that is trying the TV with different antennas (or in different areas - one with high signal strength).

I hope this helps.

(ATSC (digital OTA signals) are either enough to read or not. You can't get the fuzzy signal of an edge of range analog signal.)

I hooked an antenna up and can't get a picyure!

I assume you have tried to retune the TV & angle the antenna in different positions. Very often, due to the location of your home & the strength of signal in that area, you usually find that , no matter what you try, an indoor antenna is just not strong enough to pick up in a weak reception area. The only alternative is to try & add a signal booster onto it or much better still ( and a lot less future reception problems) is to rig up an outdoor antenna.

No signal on dtv do I need a DTV antenna

You have an awesome antenna - every one should have one like it!
An antenna that used to work with the older analog signals will work with the digital ones. What you have to remember is that analog systems though subject to ghosting, were brutes signal wise ala the metal on older cars. Digital signals are frail and even tree leaves in between the antenna and transmitter can have adverse effect on signal received.
If the sound is weak on your set that is a function of your sets audio section. Somewhere you are losing gain and/or amplification. If you have an audio output you might consider hooking that up to one of the audio inputs on audio receiver. It will work fine and that is what I did with my unit.

You may need a stronger antenna or your neighbor may have only a VHF antenna and most of the digital channels are being broadcast over UHf. . First, though, check the antenna connection as if they are dirty, they may be lowering the signal strength (these are the connections at the antenna). Check for the angel to put the tv antenna at to pick up the most channels. Internal antenna work very poorly. I have been having no problem with my outdoor UHF/VHF antenna, it picks up the same amount of channels in analog and digital.

No signal

I had a similar problem. I then noticed that my antenna has a RG6 cable. This is good. My TV requires RG6 and requires TV(RF) cable that is also RG6. Insignia comes with a TV(RF) cable that is RG59! That's a cable with a smaller diameter center connector than RG6. Consequently, when that smaller RG59 was run from the converter box to the TV's larger RG6 female connector, no signal connection was completed since the center connector made no physical contact with the TV's female connector. I found a RG6 cable to replace the RG59 cable supplied with converter box and all worked then. Also, you must force the antenna's RG6 male plug into the smaller RG59 female connector, but it'll make it.
