Just get some normal wire laying around and use and old cable hook-up. Just attach them to the cable and wrap them around the cord.
I used to do this and it gets very clear picture.

I'm trying to hook up a 19" Sansui tv. I'm not on cable, but tried hooking it up to an antenna without any luck. What do I need to do to get the TV to work???


Make sure the TV can receive digital over the air signals (it should have an ATSC tuner), that is it doesn't need a digital converter box. In the menu settings make sure the TV is set to antenna, not cable. You should be able to use the auto-scan (auto-program, etc.) from the menu to find and program the local channels.

Problems setting up new Panasonic LED-LCD TV


the TV may require an special antenna for the unit or the unit is set for cable operation
TV units have buttons on the side or near the side where initial settings can be obtained without the remote
remove the antenna cable and see if that indicates an aerial problem If you go to some shops they have a geek on hand that can show you how to fix on a shop demo unit and what you will need

I think you are confusing the channel on the tv and the channel of the cable company that is not something that you can pick up with the scan tv, scan tv is good for picking up local channel meaning air channel that we get with a antenna only not the cable chanel

Does it need a special antenna? I don't have cable or a dish. 3 stations didn't come in so I manually programmed them and still no luck. What to do?


You can buy an indoor antenna or you can mount one on your roof top. Find auto programm in the setup menu of the tv. Select antenna not cable and select auto program. The number of stations will depand on location. You may have to rotate the antenna. If this doesn't get you more than 3 stations you may have a tuner problem and need to replace the main board in the tv.

Do i need a antienna for regular tv. if i do where does it go in the back of tv. help


Yes of course you do. It goes on the RF coaxial jack (the same one that cable TV would connect tto) labeled antenna. Don't let anyone sell you a special expensive "digital antenna" because digital TV uses the same frequencies that UHF has always used and thereby requires the same antenna, or at least the smaller portion of the older antennae.

Really? cool... so I have a Panasonic HDTV 720p... just moved, no cable, but I have a TV antenna. Amplified indoor antenna. GE brand model 24700. I powered and connected the coaxial cable between the tv...


You need to go into on screen TV tuner/channel scanning setup page and change the signal source from CABLE to ANTENNA so it will scan again to pick up off the air signals. Please read the TV user manual for more details.
What is the model number of the TV?

In just bought new Toshiba regza 40" Lcd tv and auto tuned it, but the picture is terible , snowy and colours are not good, what to do...


Hello
First of all reset the TV. for that

press and hold the POWER button
on the TV control panel for 5 or more seconds to reset the TV.
Then connect the TV tt any source like outdoor areiel or cable box etc, select the appropriate input, and retune the TV. First of all, connect it to an external antenna, and set it to autotune.

You must configure the ANT/CABLE input source before

programming channels (-left-hand column).

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Cable, the

automatic channel programming process erases channels

that were previously programmed into the TV's memory.

If the ANT/CABLE input signal type is set to Antenna, the

automatic channel programming process adds newly found

channels to the existing set of programmed channels (and

does NOT erase channels that were previously

programmed into the TV's memory.) To remove an Antenna

source channel from the memory, you must manually delete

it.

To tune the TV to a channel not programmed in the channel

memory, you must use the Channel Number buttons on the

remote control.

Programming channels when the ANT/CABLE input is

configured for Cable will take substantially longer than when

the antenna input is configured for Antenna. This is normal;

however, once channel programming is finished, you should

not have to repeat the programming process again unless
your Cable TV service lineup changes significantly.
Find out the received channels are clear or not. If they are clear, your TV is perfect, and the input device you connects ot the TV is faulty. OK.

How do I program the tv to use without cable?


Hi,

1.Power on the television and press the "Menu" button on the Olevia TV's remote control.
2 Choose the "Programming" option to view all of the Olevia setup options.
3 Choose the "Channel Program" option, then select either "Antenna" or "Cable" (select "Cable" when using a satellite receiver).
4 Select "Start" and the Oleiva TV scans over all the stations it receives. Once complete, is stores the information into its memory bank, so when you attempt to change the television station you only see programs that come in clear onto the TV.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
