Not picking up digital channels on my Dynex TV

Just bought this Dynex TV, and it's not picking up any digital stations when I connect an antenna. When I plug the same antenna into my sony HDTV, I do get the digital channels. Anybody know what I need to do to correct this?

    I have the exact same problem. I ran the auto channel thing and it only picked up analog. Just bought it to. If you figure out what's wrong let me know.

    exactly the same problem - cannot receive OTA digital signals

  • Anonymous Dec 22, 2008

    Same issue. The menu won't allow me to access the DTV Signal submenu. When it scans for channels on the digital side, it skips over exactly the channels it should find (i.e., it should find Channel 11 and 13, but skips from 10 to 12 to 14).

    Same problem with a 22" Dynex. The BestBuy store were I bought it doesn't even answer the phone. Email gives the said phone number as a reference.

    They know the problem, they just don't care. Willl bring the TV back.

    Yes I am having the same problem. Best Buy told me to wait until AFTER the 17th to see if the problem persists. That doesn't make any sense to me, why wait when I know the problem will be compounded even more after that date?

    hey my husband and i have the same problem. we just bought a digital antenna from walmart and once he took the amp off to boost the sig we got the digital channels. hope that helps a bit.

  • ajsmith Jan 24, 2009

    Same issue with the 19". The menu won't allow me to access the DTV Signal (grayed out). It picked up i digital channels during the scan, but I can't see them unless I can switch from Air to DTV Signal.

    Local channels are running test and each time, my TV does not pick up the digital signal; i.e., not digital ready.

    Like others, Best Buy is blowing me off - saying everything will be fine on the 17th and not to bother them.

    Has anyone contacted Dynex Customer Support?

  • suzytulips Feb 18, 2009

    I can't afford cable, so I bought a 19" just so I could get a few channels to get the news in the morning. It is the 17th today, and I can't get any digital channels at all! The store assured me when I bought this set that I wouldn't need a converter box. This stinks!!!!!

  • mt333 Feb 22, 2009

    I cannot get it to pick up any channels during the Channel Auto Scan. I have HDTV cable hooked up, but nothing.

Check your manual and see if you have a DTV setting. If you do the TV needs to be put into that mode to get your digital channels.

What does RF CH mean?


What is the difference between a RF channel and a virtual channel? The RF channel is the channel that the TV station uses to broadcast its signal. Before the conversion to digital, TV stations were normally identified by their channel number, and most people knew that a particular network was on a specific TV channel. While analog broadcasting was being phased out and all TV stations were converting to digital broadcasting, it was necessary for the TV stations to continue to broadcast their analog signals on their original RF channels, and also broadcast their digital signals on a different RF channel. However, since the TV station used their broadcast channel as part of their identification, they wanted to keep using the same channel number. To allow this to happen, the new digital television broadcasting standards (ATSC) provided TV stations the ability to continue to use their original channel number and also tell the TV set to tune to the new RF broadcast channel when their virtual channel number was selected. The original channel number is called the virtual channel number, and it will be followed by a period and a second number (3.1, 7.1, etc.).
One of the benefits of converting to digital for the TV stations is that they now have the ability to transmit more than one program at the same time on the same RF channel. The number of additional channels they can broadcast is determined by the resolution of the program (SD vs. HD, text only, music only, etc.). The second number in their virtual channel number indicates that one of the additional programming sources from the same TV station is being viewed (10.2, 10.3, 10.4, etc.).
When selecting an antenna, it is important to understand the difference between the RF broadcast channel and the virtual channel. Antennas are designed to receive specific ranges of RF channels, and the antenna needs to be selected for the RF channel you wish to receive. TV stations broadcast in two broad frequency ranges, called VHF and UHF. RF channels 2 through 13 are considered VHF, and RF channels 14 through 51 are considered UHF. In order to pick up the channels, the antenna has to be designed for the correct frequency range. It is very common today to find that TV stations using virtual channels 2 through 13 are actually using RF broadcast channels in the UHF range. Although not as common, some TV stations using virtual channels 14 through 51 are actually transmitting in the VHF range. An antenna designed for only UHF channels will not work effectively for RF broadcast channels in the VHF range, and an antenna designed for only VHF channels will not work effectively for RF broadcast channels in the UHF range.

I HAVE A DIGITAL ANTENNA AND I WHEN I DO A CHANNEL SCAN IT'S NOT PICKING UP ALL THE CHANNELS HOW DO I GET ALL THE CHANNELS


It has to do with the distance and direction of the different TV station antennas. You have to have a strong enough antenna, and you have to aim it at the TV station's transmitter.

How do i cahange my reception From analog to digital?


The Dynex LCD-19-09 19in LCD Tv has a digitial tuner in it already. I would recommend doing a channel scan and make sure it is on the "Antenna" setting instead of "Cable" and let it scan for channels. You will see all the analog channels like "7", "12" if they are still broadcasting, however, if you can pick up the digital channels, it will look more like "7-1" or 12-1; 12-2 etc.". To get to this, push the "Menu" button on the Dynex remote, then arrow down twice to TV, then push the right arrow and make sure it is set at Antenna and do a channel scan. Should get you whatever digital channels are available. If the digital antenna is not strong enough, you will need to get the digital one at Wal-Mart as previously suggested and hope that will convert the analog channels in your area.

Dynex TV Model DX-LCD32-09 Does Not Pick Up DTV Signals


Make sure you buy an antenna from walmart or something. once that hooks up to the tv you should be able to receive some. otherwise the tv itself doesnt have a built in antenna. I bought one from walmart for 30.00 and i get about 8 dtv channels. there are cheaper ones.

Only channels 2-13 show on new Dynex 19" LCD TV


You'll need to find the Cable/Antenna setup and change it from Antenna to Cable. Sometimes the setting you want is called CATV.
