I figured it out on my own, the TV is picking up a signal from DirecTV so we know it's digital.......

Thanks

My Tv no longer registers a signal from the antenna. I can see a picture thruogh my smart DVR and Chromecast but no pic with TV antenna. I bought a new antenna, still no signal.


Is the TV set to air or cable? It has to be set to air/antenna and a channel search has to be done first before a picture will show.

Input signal.


You should be able to connect the TV to the antenna without the tuner converter box. If you still do not get signal you may need some type of signal amplifier between the antenna and TV. Hope that helps.

I have an older Sharp Aquos TV - model # LC-32G4U. I am trying to connect a digital antenna but it doesn't work. Anyone know if I need a separate digital tuner for this TV? Or what else might be t


There is no difference between a "digital" and analog antenna. Either antenna will capture the signal. What you need is a digital converter box to convert the over air digital signal to the older analog type signal your TV needs. You connect the antenna to the digital converter box, and the digital converter box to the TV.
Several years ago, the US government forced peopel to buy digital converter boxes or newer TVs that could pick up the digital signal. Either get a digital converter box or a new TV.

Yes its antenna problem?maybe your house too closed signal your antenna is getting hard to find signal for your TV.

You must use a Outdoor Antenna to widen your signal range.

And also i suggest that you move you antenna outside your house or at your roof to be able to enhance the signal for your TV.

Hope my solution will help.

The picture freezes and the sound is lost. Until the picture returns and the sound returns,this happens every couple of seconds.


If you actually have the Zenith model TV (B25A24Z), the trouble is not in your set. This model has only an analog tuner, and what it sounds like you are describing is digital pixellation. This is what happens with a digital-to-analog converter box when it gets a weak signal, with rain fade or heavy snow on a satellite dish antenna, or when a digital cable system has some signal problems. The converter equipment locks the last complete frame (or breaks up into blocks and freezes) and the sound is muted.

You'll need to look for the cause of your trouble in whatever is feeding the TV. If you have a digital converter box for off-the-air broadcasts, make sure you have a good antenna and all the connections are tight. If you have satellite TV service or digital cable service, you might need to contact your service provider for help in troubleshooting and fixing the trouble.

I have just bought a digital tv and can't tune the video in


If you are talking about an older VHS or Beta recorder, the tuning for recording is done by the player itself. If you are using an outdoor antenna to recieve your local stations to record, most likely you will need a digital TV adaptor to convert the over the air digital signals to an analog signal the tape player can understand.

I installed the zenith Digital converter box lastnight..used an digital amplified indoor antenna..only got 5 channels but today its not recieving signal at all and i bought another indoor antenna thinking...


I understand your issue as not getting the Digital reception from your converter box. The antenna plays an important role in what you can get. If you still have the Amplified antenna try to reduce the amplification and readjust the antenna positions. You might have to do this several times until you get it right. Also, if you live in a city and not a rural location do not use an amplified antenna and see if it is any better.
Good Luck.

DTV converter Box and Zenith system 3


I have the same problem.... On the back of the tv, there are three coax spots. One is for Cable, one is antenna decoder, and another is a loop. I have had zero luck getting any of those to receive the signal. Instead i have ran my digital signal to a vcr, then ran rca cables from it to my tv. I then put my tv in vcr mode, or aux depending on where you hooked it up. You can watch tv through your vcr this way.

Sanyo DS31590 and converter box


I just checked the owners manual online. Looks like this model only has an NTSC analog tuner. No ATSC digital tuner built in.

If you use cable or satellite TV services, the digital converters won't help you. The coupon-eligible ones are strictly for use with a traditional antenna. If this is your situation, ignore the remainder of this message.

If you use a regular TV antenna with this TV, then, yes, you will need a converter box. FYI, the Insignia model at Best Buy and the Zenith at Circuit City, and elsewhere (radio shack) have gotten good reviews from early purchasers. More converter box models will be available in a few months time.

If your current reception with your antenna is poor (snowy), you may have problems receiving the new DTV signals. If not, you should be pleasantly surprised with the quality of the DTV signals - and the extra "virtual" channels. Try the converter box using the RCA video and audio inputs, for a slightly better picture than with the coaxial cable inputs.

Good Luck
