How do I hook up an indoor antenna to my Sanyo TV


There is a threaded connector marked cable/antenna. You use this connection to attach the antenna cable. Then you do a channel scan with the tuner set to antenna not cable.

What kind of antenna do I Ned and do I have to have cable for it to work


I am still using the antenna I fitted 25 years ago and it works fine for my flat tv, most new antennas will say that they are good gor hd tv, internal antennas normally have a cable built in to connect to tv but outdoor / loft ones require cable. Some homes have a wall socket for antenna feed but you need a cable to go from this to the tv.
Hope this helps

Antenna


The only reason to have an electrical wire going to the antenna is for a motor that raises and lowers the antenna. The antenna cable to the radio is the only wire on the antenna.
To replace the antenna, you have to remove it from where it connects onto the car, then lift it out from there. The antenna and the cable cannot be separated, it's all one piece. You pull the cable off of the back of radio, and tie a strong string onto it, because when you lift out the antenna, the cable will be pulled out from under the dash and to wherever the antenna is situated and out that hole. Now tie the string onto (hope you had a long string, lol) the end of the cable on your new antenna and cable, and stick the end of the cable into the antenna mounting hole. Pull the string from under the dash by the radio and you will bring the cable back into the dash and where you can plug it into the old radio and listen to good old music again !

I can't seem to get any digital channels


Before scanning for channel, check to see if the Antenna input is set to Cable or Antenna. If you have rabbit ears or and outside antenna then set it to antenna. If you have cable then set it to cable. Then rescan for channels. If this has already been set then the next step is to check the antenna or cable feed. If possible plug the antenna or cable feed into another TV that is known to be working correctly. If it is capable of receiving digital channels then the problem is likely the Samsungs ATSC tuner and will require service.
If neither TV is getting Digital channels then I will need more info on your antenna setup and where you are located. I am a pro on TV antennas and reception.
Hope this helps
Have a great Day

How do you replace an antenae on a 1965 mustang.


Disconnect the cable at the radio. Then unscrew the hardware holding the antenna to the fender. Then pull the antenna base out of the fender, disconnect the cable from the antenna base turning it back and forth with pliers or you can cut it. Do not let the cable fall back into the fender. Now take the cable from the new antenna and duct tape it to new antenna cable. Now inside the car pull on the old cable until the new cable reaches the radio. Plug cable into radio then hook up the hardware on the fender for the new antenna and you're done. Good luck.

Need to know how to remove a regular antenna from a 1996 Toyota Tacoma. It is not a power antenna.


Toyota Pick-ups/Land Cruiser/4Runner 1989-1996
Antenna - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

If your antenna mast is the type where you can unscrew the mast from the fender, simply do so with a pair of pliers. Most damaged antennas are simply the result of a truck wash or similar mishap, in which the mast is bent.

Manual Antenna
  1. Disconnect the antenna cable at the radio by pulling it straight out of the set. Depending on access, this may require loosening the radio and pulling it out of the dash.
  2. Working under the instrument panel, disengage the cable from its retainers.
On some models, it may be necessary to remove the instrument panel pad to get at the cable.
  1. Outside, unsnap the cap from the antenna base.
  2. Remove the screw(s) and lift off the antenna, pulling the cable with it, carefully.
To install:
  1. When reinstalling, make certain the antenna mount area is clean and free of rust and dirt. The antenna must make a proper ground contact through its base to work properly.
  2. Install the screws and route the cable into the cab. Make certain the cable is retained in the clips, etc.
  3. Connect the cable to the radio; reinstall the radio if it was removed.

Power Antenna Mast
The power antenna system contains a relay. If the power antenna is inoperative, the relay is the first place to look. The actual motor rarely fails.
The power antenna mast is replaceable on the Pick-Up and 4Runners. If the mast is damaged or broken, proceed as follows:
  1. Perform this repair with the battery cables connected. Turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
  2. Remove the antenna nut.
  3. If equipped with a CD player, press the AM and FM buttons on the receiver and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  4. For non-CD player units, press the AM button and simultaneously turn the ignition switch to ACC .
  5. The antenna motor will run, unwinding the mast from the spool. have an assistant guide the mast so it doesn't fall and damage the bodywork. When fully extended, the mast will be released. Remove it, and leave the ignition in the ACC position.
To install:
  1. Insert the new cable so that the teeth face the rear of the vehicle. Feed the cable into the motor until the cable reaches the bottom, about 12 in. (30cm).
  2. Have an assistant ready and prepared to guide the cable. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK . The motor will run, winding the cable onto the spool and drawing the antenna down into the mount.
  3. If the cable does not wind, twist the cable at the top of the housing; the part at the bottom may have turned while being pushed down the hole.
  4. Once wound onto the spool, install the antenna nut even if the antenna is not fully retracted. Test the antenna elevation and retraction; the mast will eventually retract fully.
Hope helped with this (remember rated this post).

Replace antenna


Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.
