If you are getting a No Data signal displayed on the screen then you know the box is hooked to the TV correctly(if it wasn't you wouldn't get anything on the screen). What you are not getting is a signal to the box. In other words, The box is talking to the TV but nothing is talking to the box.
Look for the simple solutions first and work backwards. Check the coaxial line going into the box. Make sure the ends are good and it doesn't have any kinks in it. If you have Comcast or a similar cable company you can bypass the box for test purposes and go straight into the TV. If a picture doesn't come on then you know the problem is before the box.

I cannot get any stations on my new 18.5 inch color TV. What do I need to do. It will not bring in any stations when I program


first you need to check and make sure you have cable hook up to or a converter box because without that converter box your not going to get a channel period. the next thing is that you you should go to your menu and setting and channels and program your channels to run.

Want to continue to record on my VCR after digital hookup


You have to use the RCA plugs on the back of the converter box and the tv (red,yellow and white). Or you can attach the antenna wire to box and then attach the wire that comes with the converter that is listed as to the tv and instead attach it to the antenna in on the vcr. The converter box will determine which channel your vcr will get a singal to record from. Your VCR for every program will be set to channel 3 or 4 (depending on what your converter box is set to broadcast on). Make sure the power saver on the converter box is turned off as if you want to record a program in say 4 hours, if the converter box turns off in 2, your vcr will have nothing to record.

I ran seperate coaxible cable to the tv from vcr and unplug the tv converter box everytime I want to watch the vcr. You can also use the RCA cord to send the signal from the vcr to the tv and use the input signal to watch your recorded programs. I had static showing up everytime I played it through the second converter box thus I solved it by running a seperate coax line. I don't know if you will have this problem, just wanted you to be aware.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal


Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

Picture not clear when playing a recorded program from dvd


I had a similar problem with an Insignia converter box. This is confusing but . . . I was told by an Insignia person that you can only program the channel that you have on and cannot record a different channel. My output channel is 3. My roof antenna is attached to my converter box "From Antenna" jack. Attach the converter's "To TV (RF)" jack to your VCR's "Antenna Input" jack. Attach "Antenna Output" jack to TV "Antenna Input". You will see your programs on your output channel, but if your VCR is like mine, your VCR may not recognize anything but your output channel, no matter which station is actually showing on the TV. If I want to record a show on channel 7 while I'm gone, I have to make sure the converter station is on 7 and that I choose channel 3 as my channel to record. You cannot program shows to be taped on different stations unless you physically change it on the converter box. I put my VCR on "Record" and flipped the stations from one to the next from my converter remote control and I taped exactly what was on the screen from one station to the next. You cannot tape one thing and watch another. Clear as mud??? Hopefully, not.

SONY KV32V16...can't get all my cable stations.


I called our cable company about getting a converter box and it ended up I didn't need one after all. The cable rep told me to go to the menu and try the auto-programming. He was familiar with the TV I have and said that a converter box is not necessary. So, I tried the auto-programming and still didn't get all the channels...then I noticed on the menu for the channel set up there was the word "Cable" and after it it said "Off" so, I switched that to "On" and did the auto-programming, and Presto! I got all my channels.

No channels downloaded


The antenna must be hooked up to the converter box. The better the antenna, the better your reception will be.

Not everyone in the country will be in range of digital signals. Digital signals have a shorter range than analog signals do right now. It is possible (but unlikely) that you are not currently in range of any digital signals.

So make sure you are set up like this - Antenna--converter box--Television. Then scan for channels. You should still pick up any analog signals while the box is hooked up, you will just view them the same way you do now, by changing the TV station rather than the converter box station.

Convertor box and Sony Wega with PIP (2 Tuners) and new Digital DVR/VCR


I wonder if the RF interference from the digital tuner. That box will only allow ouput either through the coax or the AV ports. If you do both you will not get a picture.

If you switch them you have to tell the box what your using for output by going through the setup process.

Is the Zenith 901 converter box for your cable TV.

No signal converter box.


Why is this in the computer section?

Anyway, don't exchange the box just yet! First, can you access the converter's menu? Because mine automatically comes up with the "no signal, call customer service" message, but I can access the menu fine -- so the hook-up is not the problem. If you can access the menu, let it autosearch for you, because mine can't be used until I do this. If you get the "weak antenna signal message", refer to the user manual to find out how to check your antenna signal strength; if it's in the weak range, you have to buy a better antenna, most likely from the official source: http://www.accessHD.tv

You can always exchange the box and repeat the process. Getting the "no signal" message is a good indicator that you've hooked everything up right, especially if it's accompanied by a customer service number. You can email me at kalalkb@gmail.com and I'll try to help you troubleshoot the problem if you like. I'm up all night.
