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

Sony trinatron turns video off and on, audio stays on


Not knowing the model number I will make a guess---many of their older sets if the MASTER screen is too low (set too low) this will happen.

This happens with age as the picture tube gets weaker---seen a number where just (inside the set) turning the master screen up slightly cures the problem.

We want to hook our small Magnavox tv to a rabbit ear antennae to get only local stations. How to do this?


Unless this a new TV with ATSC (digital) tuning built in, you will need a digital adapter for off-the-air reception. Older TV sets have analog tuners, and analog broadcasting ended in June 2009. Wal-Mart and Radio Shack carry the adapters, as do other retailers. Your antenna connects to the adapter, and the adapter sends the converted signal to the TV on channel 3 or 4.

With digital broadcasting, a strong signal is necessary. Unlike the analog days, when a weak signal just meant a fuzzy picture, a weak digital signal will cause pixellation (blockiness) or freezing of the picture, or may not even be detected by the tuner. Depending on how far you are from the station's transmitter, you may find that rabbit-ears may not work too well. You may need an amplified antenna or even one outside to get best performance.

Digital signal conversion


If you have cable TV, satellite TV, or FIOS, the coupon eligible converter boxes aren't needed and aren't useful with those services.
They gov't coupon converter boxes are only good for reception with a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears.

According to the specs on epinions.com, no, this TV does not have a digital tuner. So, if you use a rooftop TV antenna (not satellite dish) or an indoor TV antenna, you WILL need an ATSC to NTSC converter box. You need not wait until next year, however, as most U.S. TV stations are also broadcasting digital (ATSC) now.

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.
