If it is connected with coax cable i would first try removing the cable and reinserting it, try putting the channel switch on 3 instead of 4, or 4 instead of 3, if this does not work try a different coaxial cable

Can I take black and white pictures with this camera?


Most digital cameras cannot take black and white photos. You need to download the photos to your computer and use a photo editing program to convert the color photos to black and white.

Hello. Your digital TV is all set up to recieve the digital signal that is now the standard signal coming into your home. The old analog signal is history. If you still want to use your VHS/DVD recorder you will have to get a signal conversion box, at your local walmart or radio shack. This will take the new digital signal and convert it so your old analog VHS/DVD can process it properly. Joe

Can I set my camera to black and white pictures


The EX-Z9 doesn't have a black-and-white mode. You can convert a color picture to black-and-white using just about any photo-editing program on a computer, and this will give you better control over the conversion than any camera.

Model 55311 Can you pick up digital tv without converter box?


I am thinking that you have a Mitsubishi WS-55311. If this is the case, you will need a converter box to receive digital television signals.

I hope that this helps you resolve your issue.
Thanks for using Fixya

Hi! Simple question; answer hard to find. Does a Sylvania 6520FDF (20" color TV/DVD, purchased new in late 2006 or early 2007) need a digital converter box? Thanks for any assistance. Bruce


BRUCETYRE::
unless the information that comes with the tv says it is digital ready, NO!! and you will need a converter box.The reason is that for almost two years before the conversion, the /tv people knew what was going to happen and they were getting rid of the 'old' stock.The TV must say it is digital ready.
p.s. I looked it up for you...SORRY!!
"" The manufacturer has informed us that this model has been discontinued. However, it might still be available for sale.""
p.s.s. Now I know for sure that it is not digital ready...get the converter box.

Be sure that your TV is set to channel 3 or 4 if you are using the RF cable or Video 1, etc if using the Audio/Video cable.  The Installation  Guide should appear.  The "improved" picture that you are seeing is simply the analog throughput, not the digital conversion.

Is this an Analog TV? Does it have a picture tube and not an LCD or plasma screen? Most likely this is a Analog TV.

If it is an Analog TV (and I would bet that it is), then no, it does not have a digital (QAM) tuner to pick up DTV broadcasts. The fact that it has a VCR also indicates that its an Analog TV.

If you are picking up your TV signals from an outside antenna and not cable, then yes, you will need a converter box to convert the new digital signals to Analog so that you can continue to use your TV set.

If you are using cable to receive your channels, the cable company already provides the conversion for you and your TV will continue to work as before.

The government is giving out coupons to help consumers defray the costs of purchaing a converter box. The following sites are good places to obtain more information.

Black and white


Yes it can, it should be under picture styles or something similar to that. However I find it better to take all my pictures in color and convert to black and white on the computer, which keeps my options open and gives me more choices for B&W conversion
