The power cable is going to be generic. The way you determine what to get is with 2 factors. 1) The voltage. 2) The polarity. Look on the tv next to where you would plug the power cable in, and it should say a number like (EX) 9v which means you need a nine volt cable. There is also a +----0----- - which is the polarity. Make sure the polarity matches because a the line from either the plus or minus will be inside of the line and circle that follows. Sketch an image of that symbol and go into a local radioshack, show them this information, and they will sell you the necessary cable.

Will not run on battery. charged battery but will not hold charge.


Hi Martha, had a bit of a look around and noticed a few mentions of charging problems including the following - 'One of these units was apparently dead on arrival and on further investigation, it worked off mains but not from battery. The battery comes out from a flap underneath the unit, and on testing with a multimeter, it was under voltage, so must have been old stock. Despite 2 days of charging, no life, so I ordered a replacement battery (RITAR RT1250 or equivalent 12v battery) and it works fine. I also have a proper battery charger rather than use this unit's own charger, which charges the battery rapidly, but I think at the cost of battery lifespan. Given that I use this unit infrequently, this is fine, otherwise use the internal charger as normal. With the new battery, I've never managed to run out of battery.. it will keep going all day on a single charge.

The manual does state that if you don't charge the unit at least every 6 months, it may not charge.'

I know it's not exactly a resolution but hope it helps!

Most everything is digital now. There are very few analog OTA stations left. If you do not have a analog station nearby then the t.v. will not pick anything up.

Lost charger


if you are right and it has been discharged for this long it will take a long time for it to start to charge.it could also not charge ever again. batteries have to have a minimum off 1.5volts to be able to recharge. if it drop lower than this it cannot charge. now sometimes you can jump start the battery with a slightly higher voltage but only to the battery not in the unit. goes as follows. 1.5v battery jump 3 seconds on 3volt. 3v battery jump 6volt 3 sec, 9volt jump 12volt 2 seconds, 12volt 14-16volt 2 seconds 2 times. 14volt and 16volt is max 24volt 1 second at 3 intervals. all these are set at a 3amp no higher amp.

For use during an extended power outage, where of course you wouldn't be able to recharge the battery after it drained initially, I'm wondering if anyone has tried using a 12 volt lead acid rechargeable...


You simply need a DC - AC Inverter, these can be obtained from somewhere like Radio Shack, or the like, pretty cheaply. These convert 12V DC into 115/120V AC (Some are 24V - 115/120 V) for use with your household appliances. You can get them from 100 Watts to over 1 kilowatt (!000 Watts) They can be used on almost anything at all, except things with big motors in them. Then you can simply plug the AC adapter into the inverter and you are good to go. not having to worry if your laptop is getting correct power.
Often the DC input into a laptop is between 14 Volts DC to 22 Volts DC and a high current too, up to 5 Amps. So the inverter is your best option.
Anyway you would need to use at least TWO 12 Volt batteries and then you would have to make it the exact voltage the laptop needed.. if it was say 19V then you are still going to have to find a way to drop the 24 V to 19 V, anyway so.....

Casio EV 550 B portable TV 3" screen many of "us" with portables are wanting a "FiX" instead of landFILLing our sets when the switchover comes apon us. Is there a DTV FiX? costs? Are there portable DTV's?...


I have my handheld Casio TV-980 up and running with a converter box. All I needed (in addition to the converter box and standard rabbit ears [UHF/VHF] antenna) was an adapter with an F jack on one end and a 1/8" plug on the other (Radio Shack catalog # 278-257, about $5). The 1/8" plug on the adapter goes in the external antenna jack on the TV, and the other end connects to the coaxial cable that connects to the TV (RF out) jack on the converter box. The adapter would have been a little cheaper at my local, independent electronics store, but they were sold out.
 
If your antenna has flat 300 ohm wire connections, you'll need a balun (Radio Shack catalog # 15-1297, about $8) to connect it to the coaxial cable that goes to the Antenna (RF in) jack on the converter box.
 
I’ve tried 2 different converter boxes with the handheld TV, and they both work well: Insignia (Best Buy’s house brand, same as Zenith) and RCA (from Target, same as Venturer), so any government coupon-eligible converter box should work.
 
A few other tips:
 
1. I always turn on the converter box before I turn on the TV. The cpnverter box seems to take control better that way.
 
2. When I turn on the TV, the tuner doesn’t automatically go to channel 3 or 4 (where it should be set when using a converter box), and the picture quality is poor. If I use the tuner on the TV to get to channel 3 or 4, the picture quality is vastly improved. I have to do that every time I turn on the TV.
 
3. Placement of the antenna is very important. I like to watch my handheld TV when I'm on the computer, and the reception is better the further away from the computer the antenna is located. I'm actually using a 6' coaxial cable for the antenna, but I could also have used 2 shorter cables with a coupler that has an F jack at both ends (Radio Shack catalog # 278-304, about $3).
 
If your battery-operated TV does not have an external antenna jack, instructions for connecting it to a converter box can be found at

No power via batteries


The batteries are put in wrong, or there no good, or the dc jack in the back still has the plug in it for the ac adaptor. You see theres a small switch on the jack inside the unit that switches from the ac adaptor to the batteries, when the jack is iserted. Also if the plug is not pluged into the jack, then there could be a bad jack or a broken solder connection on the jack inside on the printed circiut board. good luck
