The issue with antenna not being detected is in the female contact of the antenna's plug, not with the connector in the box (as I expected to find). I have not yet verified this by trying a new antenna. Here is how to dissassemble the box in any case.

Very carefully, with a small very flat screwdriver, remove the front grille of the unit. There are 8 additional screws set in deep holes that need to be removed. Once done, the front panel will pop right off.

The inside of the case is a mess of wires. You do not need to disconnect them if you do not want to.

Pry the grill off the bottom of the box. Remove the 4 screws that hold in the speaker. This will allow you to move the speaker that is in the main body out of the way.

The antenna jack is _not_ a part of the circuit board. If you look into the box, you will see a rectangular cut-out in the edge of the circuit board. There is a wire with a silver connector that is held in place by 2 screws. Remove those screws and you are now holding the antenna jack.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

I would like to know if this model PHd8000 is still available for purchase

Hello, Kimberly -

Clarification: Are you asking about a digital high definition (HD) television antenna made by Prime Tech?

If so, the answer will depend upon where (what country) you reside. So far, I have only found the antenna sold through Brazil based websites.

In case you reside in Brazil, see:

Best wishes.

The telescopic antena can bw bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town. You have to take your borken antenna with you to show them as sample. There are many types of base fittings to the telescopic antena. So you have to open your radio, and unscrew out the base of the antenna also to select a new one. See the different types of seating bases to antenas.gopakumarg43_87.jpggopakumarg43_88.jpg

My tv has a different tv out where the antena is connected. Antena tv has a kind of like a screw at one end and at the other end is the antena. All tv has the right connection for the antena but my daewoo...

it sounds like either:
-the tv was intended for a foreign market.
-the tv does not have a tuner (it is just a monitor)

the connector on the antenna is an "f" connector.

if the connectors on the tv are "rca" then it is probably just a monitor - and needs an external tuner (ie dedicated tuner, cable box, tivo, vcr, etc)

if the connector on the tv is a "bnc" then the tv may be meant for the european market, and probably can not tune channels in the us.

see for images of bnc and rca connectors.

you can certainly get an adapter from/to any of those connector types, but i think that alone is unlikely that will solve the problem. check or find the manual for the tv - be sure it actually has a tuner compatible with the signals you want to receive..

1985 ZX300 power antena problem. When the radio is turned on the antena goes down and when it is shut off the antena goes up. Al factory parts, radio, antena and all switches. Any ideas what would cause...

im guessing the antenna has been replaced and wires were mixed up. take the rear panel off in the trunk to give access to the antenna motor and look at the wiring there should be 2 small wires and one larger black wire. the black wire is the reception wire the other two are the power wires. switch the positions on the two power wires. say wire A is in plug 1 and wire B is in plug 2. final position should be A in 2 and B in 1. that should take care of it. good luck

Can i use existing satelite antena on my audi

The antenna should plug into the Stilleto car kit if your Audi is equipped with Sirius already. Otherwise you will have to use another Sirius antenna.
