Is my tv digital?

I'm trying to figure out if my TV is digital or not. It was manufactured in 2004. I cannot locate the owners manual either. I have dish network for my TV provider. Will I need to get one of those converter boxes?

Re: is my tv digital?

Your tv is not digital, but fear not the Dish network reciever is already digital. the satbox is digital and converts to your TV.
if you are worried about the conversion to digital this applies to off air broadcast (the stuff you get from an antenna in your local area). if you want to know if you can get HD on your set, well your out of luck there because that is a whole differant digiotal world.
to explain this better we have to understand the old broadcast world before we get into the digital world.
NTSC or National Television Systems Committee has been the standard that we have watched TV since the creation of TV (one size fits all). it is an anolog format that is plaged with problems in the broadcast world, snowy pictures due to poor reception, visible scan lines, and a whole host of other problems. so the US has adpopted a new broadcast standard ATSC or Advanced Television Systems Committee, formed in 1993 this committee came up with 18 formats to which a broadcaster may choose from to broadcast the message. of the 18 only 6 are HD or High Definition. this does not mean that your local broadcast has to provide HD but they must be digital in their broadcast (SD or HD). the advantage of going to digital is that you will never see a snowy picture ever again, you have the picture or you don't. also the broadcaster has now can broadcast multiple programs on their one carrier (frequency). so if you want HD you must have a set that can display this format and have the equipment to produce this to your set. the dish box you have may not be able to produce this signal to your NEW HD setso that may be needing to be upgraded.

Standby Light Keeps Blinking. Can't get TV to come on.

The TV is on protect mode.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

Also ensure that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending bad signal, check if you get same problem with no receiver box or dvd connected.

If that does not work, and you keep having a flashing led on front of the TV, and tv turning off by itself after a while, that indicates a fault condition.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible reasons.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , startingthe flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then theTV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

Common faults that can occur are a blown capacitor on power board, a convergence IC has blown, or a fault on Digital board.

Check also the video cable or any external connection cable, if the cable is shorting, or the connector is bad, you can get same flashing state because of the video cable.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expense, just locate any good qualified repairer.

Digital tuner or not?

Yes in July I do not recall the date you will need the digital tuner for this TV, A rule of thumb look at the manufacture date on the back of the set if its earlier then 2007 you need a digital converter. There are two types of digital QAM signals one is called TRUE QAM and the other is STANDARD QAM the old standard was foe things like DVD's and the like and not OTA "over the air" I hope thisdoes help but you do got a good TV there but if you buy a converter you be gald you did!!!

Please do not shoot the messanger and rate a good rateing as we do not get PAID to answer these free questions :)
