SONY Trinatron 27" Gets No Reception

I'm still using rabbit ears (I know, I'm in the dark ages) and they stopped working. I get a "No Signal" message on the TV. The rabbit ears work with my other TV - I hooked it up exactly the same way in the same location. My Sony works great to play DVD's. Any ideas on what to do?

Hello
What are you using to connect the rabbit ears to the tv, a 300 to 75 ohm plug assembly? it may have sprung the contacts in the rf socket of the tuner.
or The tuner has malfunctioned,
It may be switched to the wrong source as some tvs have more than one tuner input.
Thanks Guy9

No signal on set top box im using rabbit ears and


The problem is that rabbit ears aren't that sensitive. They don't pick up enough signal quality before the amplifier stage to get decent reception. They only work well if you're in a location where the signal strength is very high.

There are some general tips for using these indoor antenna/aerials such as getting close to a window. But if you live in a building constructed from the mid 80's onwards then there's a good chance it has foil-lined in-wall insulation which is great at blocking external TV and radio signals.

If you can get an external aerial put up then do that. Alternatively, can you tap in to someone elses external aerial feed? (With their permission, of course).

Really tough to get perfect reception with Rabbit ears. If you can somehow feed the line outside a lot of the times I have found that it helps improve signal reception

No reception with rabbit ears


Check to see if you have the "Rabbit ears" plugged into the correct spot and you are on "Analog tv" if you are trying to use digital tv on "Rabbit ears" it can't send out a strong signal like the areal ontop of a house. You may need to get an adapter to broadcast a stronger signal but even better if you can connect to roof antena.

TV picture freezing


digital signals do not fade out and get snowy like signals used to do ... if the signal gets too weak then it just freezes .. you might say its either perfect or frozen .. sometimes it gets blocky .. where some sections of the screen freeze while other sections continue .. what that means if you are using an antenna is .. you need a better antenna or better aim for the one you have .. outside is much better than inside but just rabbit ears are ok for strong signal areas .. you can aim the antenna based on a signal strength meter usually provided in HD receivers in the setup menu .. you can also get an antenna map from "www.antennaweb.org" .. that will show you what direction to point the thing for each channel and how strong each channel should be ... if you are using Cable instead of an antenna then you should have good signal strength but there is a problem called "Crest Factor" .. that becomes an issue when they put too many signals on a given cable .. the cable handles it ok as long as there is no damage (bad ends, water inside, animal chews, corrosion) but the cable box or receiver may be overloaded as thousands of signals drift in and out of phase ... thats a cable company problem that might be getting worse as more channels are added .. the results are that periodically the picture will freeze or pixelate .. you probably have to accept a little of that but more than a little gets really irritating ....off the air reception with an inside antenna (like rabbit ears) you will find that moving around the room can effect the signal for channels in the UHF range (most are) .. aiming the antenna and getting it as high as possible will minimize that problem.. make sure whatever antenna you use is designed for UHF as well as VHF .. the little circle often found between the two "rabbit ears" is actually the UHF part of the antenna .. it can be rotated for UHF channels while the big ears are aimed and adjusted for VHF .. antennaweb.org will tell you which is UHF and VHF ..

Digital TV freezes now that the digital conversion is done


Hello,

Do you remember in the old days when you got bad reception and the TV would get snowy? That was due to the signal strength of the incoming signal was not strong enough. We with digital TV you can still have a situation where the signal is weak, since you are looking at a digital picture the video and audio are packetize, and being packets they are first fed into a buffer and then sent to the decoding section of your TV. Now think about this when the signal becomes weak and the data stream is corrupted to the point that the processor rejects the stream that data which is in the buffer plays out and the last thing in the buffer is what you see on the screen (frozen image on the screen) until the signal strength goes back to normal and the buffer fills up again.

How do you stop this, well that's a hard question since the buffer underflow is the result of signal degradation, the cure would be to prevent the signal from degrading. This can be done with the use of an HDTV antenna (too expensive), an amplified antenna (priced ok for some but still too pricy for most), a rabbit ear type antenna with an amplifier added (this will work for most people), or just a plain set of rabbit ears (dipole antenna). All of these are options that can help you.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

We have a new HDLCDVD220 Sansui television. The rabbit ears antennae we were using on our old tv worked ok, but on this one. its awful. There is almost no color and terrible reception. We were told to get...


You mentioned rabbit ears for old tv, how old are the rabbit ears? Time and humidity will make rabbit ears lose connections internally. Also, if your old rabbit ears have the flat cable going to the tv you probably had to add a converter to go to the new tv. The flat cable will lose signal strength were ever the cable touches metal. Also the adapter will cause signal lose. The best bet is to buy an amplified indoor antenna. You also may try a paper clip and about 3to4' of small gauge wire put the paper clip (bend out to fit) into the center of the antenna in on the tv have the wire connected and let it hang or lift it to see how the picture improves. The problem with rabbit ears is that you have to use war time tactics. Crawl on your stomach and adjust to best picture, if you stand and adjust the signal is usually reflected off your body and will be nice until you walk away.

Over air reception


Unfortunately, I'm in Australia and not familiar with New York TV transmissions, however, the reception principals are the same.

Your signals are most likely bouncing off walls etc in your apartment with several 'reflections' being picked up by your indoor antenna.

This 'multipath' reception causes errors in the digital signals.

Your receiver can correct a certain amount of errors, but if there are too many, your picture will pixelate and the sound will make loud noises and then you will lose reception altogether.

The fix for this problem is connecting to a roof-mounted antenna and signal distribution system. Most apartment buildings have one, however some only distribute cable channels.

There is a possibility of a fault with your TV, but from what you describe, it sounds like a signal issue.

Have a chat to your building manager and ask what system they use for FTA reception in your building.. perhaps there's a fault that they are not aware of.

Sorry I can't be of more help.

Good luck.

Sony rabbit ears


The "Horse Shoe Like Ends" on the leads are installed under the Screws marked ANTENNA and then the screws tightened. If No Screws then your Rabbit Ears do not hook directly to this TV. Is there a connector comming out of the back that is Threaded? If YES, then this is your antenna connector (R59) and will require an Adapter for the rabbit ears. Available at Radio Shack.
