Question about Toshiba CZ27V51 27" TV

1 Answer

No sound or tv signal

Have had no problems until now. Do not have cable but watch local tv stations w/inside antenna. When switching to local tv channels via remote or manually, I get snowy picture and no sound. Am able to watch dvd movie w/clear sound/picture by pressing tv/video button. Switching back to tv mode...nothing but snowy picture and no sound.

What may be cause.

Thanks,

K. Hansen

My tv says no signal on one channel, how do i get that channel back ?


If you are getting an OTA signal, you should check your antenna, any amplifier or splitter and the station's status. The "No signal" message indicates that the signal is not strong enough to be resolved by the tuner.

1) Is your antenna pointing in the correct direction? Outdoor antennas can sometimes turn in the wind. Reset the antenna to the correct direction.

2) If you have a splitter dividing the signal between TVs or other devices, try a direct connection to the one TV that isn't receiving the channel. Similarly, if you have an amplifier in the system, try using the antenna without it. (I have seen an amplifier become a filter for select channels when damaged.) The only solution is to replace the device or omit it. (In my case, some channels require amplification; thus we replaced the amplifier.)

3) Has the station's local transmitter/repeater been damaged? Check their news feed. Towers fall and transmitter components can fail.

You could try and see if another tuner picks up the signal. Some low end tuners are more sensitive to signal strength. If you are getting the station from another source, check with the provider. We recently lost some of the local PBS stations due to problems with the cable provider's feed. Only one TV is connected to the set top box.

I hope this helps.

Can not tune tv since change over


The KV-32FS100 only has an analog tuner (NTSC). Unless there is a low-power analog station still broadcasting in your area, you will not be able to watch OTA stations. (I've got one in my area that barely comes in.) If your local cable still sends an analog signal, you won't need a set top box to watch that subscribed service.

Otherwise, you need a set top box to watch TV. A digital to analog converter (the boxes that were available with the government coupon before the switch over) will give you over the air stations. The basic models only provide SD output; there are a few HD models available. Otherwise, you can use a satellite reciever, cable box (for digital cable service), or something like the Boxee or Sling with tuner. (There are a few different models of the Boxee; one added a tuner with a USB dongle. The newest model of the Boxee has the ATSC tuner built in.)

Note: OTA digital signal quality is either a strong enough signal for the tuner or no signal will be present. You need to point the antenna in the correct direction to receive the signal from your local transmitters. The type of antenna and its placement will also change the number of watchable channels. You can use antennaweb.org or tvfool.com to get more information. Antennaweb assumes an outdoor antenna but gives a conservative list of stations. If the signal is split to several devices, you may need an amplifier to get a watchable signal. (Sometimes amplifiers fail and you won't receive any stations, so test without the splitter or amplifier by using a direct cable to one TV.)

I hope this helps.

Cant seem to be able to get my local channels. i have a 52


I would suspect all the stations have gone away from over the air broadcast or gone digital for antenna reception---there are boxes available which will convert so the antenna can still be used.

Tv comes on cannot get a picture nor sound. followed instructions in manual regarding source , enter , picture, enter , channel, enter.etc., I can get to the menus but nothing else. It is not on cable...


If you have an antenna, you are trying to receive off-the-air broadcasting. Remember that a couple of years ago the US switched to digital broadcasting and analog stations went off the air. Your TV does not have a digital tuner, so you need an digital-to-analog adapter if you want to receive anything.

The US government had a program before the switch to help pay for the adapters, but that's long past now. Radio Shack sells them as do other retailers, and you can find them online as well.

The adapter picks up the digital broadcasts and converts them to a channel 3 or 4 TV signal that the analog tuner in your TV can receive. Some models of converter also feature video and audio jacks so you can connect it as an AV source like a DVD player. Once you've hooked the antenna to the converter and the converter to the TV, you'll be able to watch your local channels again. Maybe, that is.

The trouble with digital broadcasting is that signal strength makes a huge difference in reception. With analog, a weak signal would still give you a fuzzy but watchable picture. A weak digital signal may not even be detected, or you might get a picture that breaks up (pixelation) or freezes on the screen. You don't say what kind of antenna you have, but unless you're in or very close to a large city or near the station's transmitter, simple rabbit-ears may not be enough. Many people found after getting an adapter that they needed a better antenna, even something on the roof. In some areas (valleys, remote areas, places surrounded by many tall buildings, for instance) people found they could never get any channels. If you do in fact have a digital converter already (you didn't mention one), this could be the reason you can't get anything.

Hope this helps you figure out what's wrong. Thanks for using Fixya!

NOTHING BUT SNOW ON THE SCREEN


Are you connected to cable TV or an outdoor antenna? If on cable TV check the signal on another TV or if on an outdoor antenna you will need a digital TV adaptor to pick up local stations due to them not being available in analog anymore. Please take moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

I cannot get a signal with converter box and Philips indoor antenna


Try to manually enter the local DTV Station Channels, instead of letting the converter scan for channels. And try moving the antenna and then re-entering the DTV channel.


You should really have an external antenna that is matched to your local reception needs.


contact your local TV stations, their engineers will be more than happy to help.

Indoor antenna problems


I don't know the menu system on your model, but you have to check that the tuner is in the proper mode. Also, some of the new TV set models cannot receive a standard analog TV signal from its tuner.

As for the distance from the transmitter sight, this depends mostly on the antenna quality, antenna location, the power output of the transmitter sight, compatiblity of the TV to the received signal, and also the capability of the TV's tuner.

Modern TV sets are really designed to be used with a satellite or cable TV box with their respective service.

Terrestrial TV is dying out, and in a matter of a number of years, it will be gone.
