Question about Sylvania 6427GFG 27" TV

1 Answer

Switching to digital

I know in Chicago they are switching to digital in February but someone told me I can access digital now and have a clearer picture. We do not have cable or satellite, just plain old televison. The manual says to press the button on the remote to switch to DTV, which I assumed was digital as opposed to analog. It showed me "now scanning" in magenta and after a while it showed me, "unable to find signal."

Am I going to have to purchase a converter or will this television switch for me?

Please advise

Well, if your TV is analog then you'll definitely need a converter.

Samsung, DLP TV 50 inches Model # HL-T5075X/XAA


Samsung just told me they wouldn't fix my tv because it was produced in Nov. of '06 and the only ones they would fix were made in August of '06 or earlier. I am way too angry right now to call the service tech number they so very nicely provided.

Sony bravia tv keeps switching on and off


I had the same problem, seems to have something to do with the external aerial socket. I unplugged the aerial and had no more trouble (only a solution if you don't use freeview)

Digital TV??


Your set does not have the correct tuner in it. However, the broadcast change only effects those that use an external antenna for reception. If you are using cable, satelite or any other service for TV, you do not need the converter.

Digital


From what I see under amazon.com, it does not have a digital tuner.

But the February 2009 turn off is a deadline for over the air only.
When cable companies turn off their analog signals is a different matter. Some may soon, some may wait until 2012.

The gov't coupon program is only good for converters that handle the over the air digital ATSC signals, not cable's unencrypted digital QAM signals.

Digital TV Signal


Not if you cable TV, DirecTV, Dish network, or FIOS. The converters are not usable with those services.

If you use a regular TV antenna or rabbit ears, then, yes, you will need a DTV converter box. If so, I'd suggest getting one well before next February. Why? 'Cause the pictures are better, and you'll have access to "virtual channels", where broadcasters send more than one program on channels like 4.1, 4.2, etc. Also, if you have poor reception, you may need a better antenna to see the DTV signals. Better to know that before DTV is all that is being broadcast over the airwaves.

LG LCD HIGH DEF TV KEEPS SWITCHING ON AND OFF


If it works at 3 different houses, but not yours, then it might be the electrical wiring at your house. Try a different outlet in a different room. Make sure your electrical wiring is not too old, and needs to be updated. Check your circuit breaker panel, does it need to be updated?

It is dead


Of course it is very difficult to say what is wrong when all I am told is that it is dead. First I would check the main fuse and if it is good then I would look for and replace a 1000uF 25V cap on the secondary side of the switching power transformer. This should be done by someone with experience.
