Question about Insignia IS-LCDTV32 32 in. Television

Visco LCD TV VSC-32V3 32

I get no signal from the cable connection, but I get signal through the antenna connection using rabbit ears. I also get dvd signal and computer signal! I tried the antenna connection with the cable but still no signal! The unit is brand new never used and it was built in 2006! Not sure if it’s under warranty yet; but I’d like to know why it doesn’t get signal and if repair is simple?
Thanks!

    Please scan Channels! prompt would not leave the screen after I finished searching for channels. In other words, I could not get any picture or sound from the TV? Could I have selected channel 3 or 4 before scanning or searching for channels?

After connecting the cable to the TV, you should scan for channels. With the built-in cable QAM tuner, you should be fine with a scan for channels.

Try another TV to make sure that cable broadcasting is coming in...is there a set-top cable box involved?

Did you check the cabling correctly

No reception with rabbit ears


Check to see if you have the "Rabbit ears" plugged into the correct spot and you are on "Analog tv" if you are trying to use digital tv on "Rabbit ears" it can't send out a strong signal like the areal ontop of a house. You may need to get an adapter to broadcast a stronger signal but even better if you can connect to roof antena.

Hook up your rabbit ears and auto tune the TV and see what happens.

Weak signal


Please, start thinking of "outdoor" HDTV antenna installation. You must of be in use of TV's SD tuner and "rabbit ears" or so. Only outdoor or "roof" antenna will solve your issue. Unless you have another option: satellite, cable, verizon? Check with them, first.

HOW TO HOOK UP A ANTENNAE


Hi there,

Well you can follow the below steps -
1. Inspect the antenna for any signs of damage. Identify and examine the power adapter cord and the coaxial antenna cable for any rips tears or other defects.
2. Plug the adapter into the antenna's power adapter socket. It will be labeled "12V DC/Adapter". If you are using an antenna that does not require power, such as rabbit ears, you may skip this step.
3. Next connect the antenna cable to the television using the TV's "Antenna In/75 Ohm" input jack. Make sure the antenna connector is twisted tightly into place. Place the antenna on a sturdy surface such as the top of an entertainment center. If you have an older analog TV that is a non high definition ready/capable display and are using a digital to analog converter box, generally, the antenna will plug into the input of the converter and the output of the converter will plug into the antenna input of your TV. 
4. Plug the antenna's power supply into a 120V AC wall outlet. This will turn the antenna on. If you are using the "rabbit ears" style antenna, make sure that the each section of the antenna is fully extended. This will give you the best reception.
5. Turn on the TV and check for digital reception. You will know that you are receiving digital signals because the picture will be clear and free of any analog "snow" or other artifacts. Digital TV channels have DVD quality picture and sound.

Tv set just lost its ability to display digital channels


Your problem is definitely the input signal source to your tv. It is extremely rare where a new tv has a tuner signal sensitivity problem. The best thing to do is to replace your current set of rabbit ears with a different set of powered rabbit ears that have a higher gain rating with a variable gain control. Please note that the gain control setting is critical when setting up your tuner for auto-programming. If the gain control is set too low or too high it will result in your symptom.

If you still can't get it to work you could try buying a line amplifier which you would install to the rabbit ears before the tv. If you still can't get it to work you'll have no choice but to purchase an outside antennae as a result of your being in a weak signal area as signal quality changes by such things as the switch over to digital upcoming and environmental changes.

We have a new HDLCDVD220 Sansui television. The rabbit ears antennae we were using on our old tv worked ok, but on this one. its awful. There is almost no color and terrible reception. We were told to get...


You mentioned rabbit ears for old tv, how old are the rabbit ears? Time and humidity will make rabbit ears lose connections internally. Also, if your old rabbit ears have the flat cable going to the tv you probably had to add a converter to go to the new tv. The flat cable will lose signal strength were ever the cable touches metal. Also the adapter will cause signal lose. The best bet is to buy an amplified indoor antenna. You also may try a paper clip and about 3to4' of small gauge wire put the paper clip (bend out to fit) into the center of the antenna in on the tv have the wire connected and let it hang or lift it to see how the picture improves. The problem with rabbit ears is that you have to use war time tactics. Crawl on your stomach and adjust to best picture, if you stand and adjust the signal is usually reflected off your body and will be nice until you walk away.

No HD


Your TV has a built in tuner but NOT a built in antenna. Depending on where you live (distance from broadcasters) you will need to add anywhere from rabbit ears (with the UHF loop) to an antenna on the roof or mast.

If your home already has an antenna installed, connect the coaxial cable to the back of your TV. Then go to "Set-up" and scan for DIGITAL channels. If you are trying rabbit ears, do the same.
