    Just a followup on this problem. My wife has this TV and uses it when we go on trips. Any reasonable ideas on how to keep using the TV after Feb. 2009 would be appreciated.

The old Watchmans are analog. If plugged into a digital cable/dish system it will scan in UHF and find the working channel than can be conrolled by your digital remote control. As far as taking it out on its own and working off the external antenna...those days will be over. Sony will have to manufacture digital Watchmans.

PICTURE WILL NOT APPEAR ON SCREEN


First, I would check to see if the AC adaptor is working. If you are on batteries instead, look for corrosion on the battery housing-usually on the springs

Any of the digital to analog converters should work. Connect the converter RF OUT to a COAX cable, connect the wire in the center of the COAX cable to the Sony antenna with an alligator clip type patch cord. Tune the sony to the proper channel (3 or 4). Voila!

Poor reception on atsc portable tv


an external or outside antenna will improve the amount of stations picked up and maybe a amplified antenna will help
but the boxes they sell seem to do better in reception even with only a rabbit ear antenna.
I use a box on my 32in LCD because the internal tuner just does not get all the channels without having to get up and move the antenna and the outside antenna , well I'm not going to go out there to move it all the time , and the amplified antenna I still have to keep getting up to move the antenna
so in all the box( "zenith","digital stream"are good , have yet to test others) works the best in recieving the digital channels without much worry of the antenna
