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.

  • Anonymous Jan 13, 2009

    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.

    Will not pick up or allow digital channel search

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    Erases already programmed in channels when trying to add in channels with antenna. Can't watch digital channels that are not programmed in.

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.

I'm wanting to drop my satellite service. Will my projection tv pick up stations with a digital antenna?

Sorry but I've never heard of a DIGITAL ANTENNA, ALL antennas are ANALOG NOT DIGITAL, and yes you will be able to tune in some TV stations if you live close enough of TV stations that still transmit ANALOG signals, with a GOOD VHF/UHF antenna you can have good reception and viable TV time... (best of all it's FREE)

Good Luck!

I connected an antenna to the tv that i bought from walmart $30. But tv cannot find any channels at all.

If you live in the city you should be able pick up to one three channels on the indoor antenna, but if you are outside of the general viewing area you won't pickup anything. Antenna's of this sort have a very short range when it comes to tv signals, it is also possible that your antenna is not digital ready, which means any station broadcasting a digital signal you won't be able to receive.

Indoor antenna problem with Magnavox LCD TV Model 15MF605T/17

I have found most of these indoor antennae to be ineffective and a waste of money, however, I do not know anything about this particular antennae. I to have a Dish DTVpal, which I love! It's ugly and probably won't fit in your kitchen, but the best solution is to make your own "bow-tie" antennae, mount it indoors or on the roof and run a cable to the kitchen. Directions can be found on You-Tube. I live in SE Idaho (Pocatello) and can get 13 channels, most without having to adjust the antennae.

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.

Insignia digital tv converter/indoor antenna no signal

Ok first I can save you some money. Take your "HDTV" antenna back. There is nothing different about the antennas needed receive analog and digital signals. If you got reception without your converter box, use the same antenna with your converter box.

Next let's see if there is a problem with the box. Hook up a television with the antenna. How many stations do you get? Now hook up the same television & antenna, but this time put the converter box between the antenna & the TV. Do not turn on the box. Now how many stations do you get? If the number is different, the box is not allowing the antenna signal to pass through. That is bad. You want your signal to pass through the box so you can still pick up stations that don't broadcast digitally. Some areas of the country will not be covered by digital stations from all major broadcasters when the changeover happens in Feb.

My suspicion is either you did not have the antenna hooked up to the converter box when you searched for channels OR you are in an area that is not yet broadcasting digitally.

I hope this helps you solve your problem. Thank you for using FixYa and feel free to add more questions here by using comments.

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.

My new tv only gets some channels and not others

Have you tried an amplified antenna? It's basically a regular antenna but includes an amplifier to help bring in weak stations. An out door antenna may also help. I live about 3 miles from a TV station and can't pick them up due to the insanely old apartment I live in.
