Hello kimberlyn First thing to do is to checks your connections from antenna to tv input, if that doesn`t do the trick then
All i can offer to you are suggestions since tv signals depend on many variants like your surrounding area , buildings, the weather etc. I don`t know what kind of antenna you are using but it sounds like rabbit ears,they work fine if you`re near the transmitting station. I used to live in a rural area and installed directional antennas with a rotors to point it to the different tv stations transmitters , that worked fine but they are bulky and problematic.
Another way is to get an amplified antenna like the type you might see on campers, they work fine too and are much less bulky. You can even set it inside your home, and then of course there is satellite t.v.
hope this help and keep me posted. Good luck

    By the way it is a good idea to rescan/autoprogram your tv channels after you moved your digital antenna.

I have a lg model 42px5d tv which will not tune to all digital channels I have been told there maybe a fix for this but not sure where to find it


Usually, with this problem, it's due to low signal strength. Digital TV needs a good quality DTV antenna. GOOD QUALITY cables and connectors are also a good idea. If you live in a low signal strength area, u may also need an amplified antenna.

My tv says digital channel strength is low


Hello
If you are using this TV with Cable connection, the strength of cable signal is low. Contact the cable operator and ask him to put a signal booster at your premises. If you are using it with On Air transmissions receiving, include an antenna signal booster at the mast of your yagi antenna on roof. OK

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal


This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

Tried to rescan after digital change over and it wont keep the signal, i have digital tv and digital ariel


Sounds like you have weak signal in your area, unlike analog TV , if the signal strength is below a certain level it will completely reject channals, try a standard antenna with two rabbit ears and a loop. If your TV has a signal strength meter you can watch that while adjusting the antenna.

I'm trying to set the digital channels on my durabrand tv and i get the message that digital channel signal strength is low. what do i need to do?


If you are using a regular antenna to receive the signal, then you would need to either find a signal booster of some sort, or improve the antenna. There are many antennas out there for the digital era, most of them are set-top multi-/omni-directional ones, but they have their limitations. Unfortunately to get a better signal, typically an outdoor antenna is needed, or a large expansive one in the attic.

Digital built in turner


You'll need a better antenna. All the TV can do is show you the signal strength at the antenna input. If it's too low, only changing the antenna can help. This could mean simply adjusting the antenna position. You might need to replace the antenna with something larger or with a built-in amplifier. In severe cases, you might need to install an outdoor antenna to get a useable signal. With digital broadcasting it's all-or-nothing. A weak signal will either go undetected by the tuner or cause a blocky freezing (pixellated) display.

How do I boost a digital TV signal?


No don't buy an LCD TV! I mean, unless you want to, they are nice :-) But you'll still have the same antenna issue. I looked up your antenna, if it's actually working just fading in and out, try an in line amplifier first (radioshack 1501170), and if that doesn't fix your issue, time to upgrade your antenna. It does get a little pricier, but do keep in mind the whole set up is good for 10-20 years. Before going back to RadioShack, go to this website:
www.antennaweb.org

If you live closer than 15 miles, rabbit ears
If you live closer than 20 miles, omnidirectional
If you live closer than 50 miles, midrange outdoor (oldschool arial w/ rotator)
Further than 80 miles, you'll need a long range with rotator, perhaps even an amplifier to go with it. Print off what your results were on antenna web and bring it to a RadioShack or a local antenna store and they should be able to point you to the right antenna for your particular location.
