Re: Durabrand DWT1304 13 in. Tv
Most set have the coaxial plug made onto the tune inside the set. When it comes out the tuner
will have to be removed and the connector re soldered back to the tuner frame. This can be done most of the time unless the circuit board inside the tuner is damaged. If so the tuner would require replacement.
This is a job for an experienced tech.

The fault you describes is due to low signal strength. If tuner of the said TV is faulty, this type of snow interference will occur too. Just check for good firm connection to its antenna terminal. If it is Ok, check the continuity of the cable used with antenna. Check the orientation of yagi antenna if used outside. If all are OK, and nothing help you, just replace its tuner with same type and number. Tuner is a small metal box type component can be seen soldered directly to the main printed circuit board inside. Usullay, its one terminal will come out as antenna IN of the TV, to which you connects the external antenna or cable. You must have a concept of soldering and desoldering to replace it, and must have a knoledge in electronics too. OK.
I suggest to go back to the menu and make sure in the connection or signal type to select antenna.. Since you had it hooked up to cable it may not have been selected to go back to antenna. Hope this helps you out.
If you are using a regular antenna to receive the signal, then you would need to either find a signal booster of some sort, or improve the antenna. There are many antennas out there for the digital era, most of them are set-top multi-/omni-directional ones, but they have their limitations. Unfortunately to get a better signal, typically an outdoor antenna is needed, or a large expansive one in the attic.
Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. all carry a selection of antennas that will work with your converter box. Depending on the strength of DTV signals in your area, you may need an amplified antenna (has a built-in booster) to get good reception. Analog broadcasts were watchable with a weak signal (the picture would just be fuzzy), but the digital system needs a good strong signal. The sales people may be able to suggest an antenna based on what other customers have purchased and their reports of how well they do. Outdoor antennas are also available if needed.
The digital Cable conversion only effects those who still get their TV channels through an antenna or rabbit ears. If you get it through a cable provided like Comcast, you SHOULD be fine. For more information, look at the FCC website.
DOES YOUR TV HAVE AUX RCA INPUTS OR JUST A STANDARD ANTENNA CONNECTION. CAN U ACCESS CHANNEL 3 OR 4 ON THE TV..HOW DO U ACCESS UR VIDEO INPUTS. A POSSIBLE SOLUTION IS TO GET A MULTI INPUT SIGNAL SELECTOR FROM RADIO SHACK THAT WILL TAKE THE RCA AND CONVERT TO STANDARD ANTENNA CONNECTION TO PLUG INTO THE PORT
