SOURCE: RCA Colortrak 2000 remote control

I called RCA's 800 number on the back of the owner manual--got a response that said to replace the unit since only the up-down channel changer buttons were not working. Using another remote (universal) now--cost only $5.

SOURCE: I have a Westinghouse 26 inch TV.

I carried my Westinghouse TV to the basement. Unplugged the antenna from the digital converter box and connected it to my digital TV. I then re-scanned for channels and found channel 9. After carrying the Westinghouse TV back upstairs, I connected the original set-up and tuned to channel 9 which was now showing on the screen as no signal. From that point I moved my VHF dipoles until I had located the correct position for reception. A little labor intensive, but I was fortunate to have another antenna that was receiving channel 9.

SOURCE: tv set just lost its ability to display digital channels

Your problem is definitely the input signal source to your tv. It is extremely rare where a new tv has a tuner signal sensitivity problem. The best thing to do is to replace your current set of rabbit ears with a different set of powered rabbit ears that have a higher gain rating with a variable gain control. Please note that the gain control setting is critical when setting up your tuner for auto-programming. If the gain control is set too low or too high it will result in your symptom.

If you still can't get it to work you could try buying a line amplifier which you would install to the rabbit ears before the tv. If you still can't get it to work you'll have no choice but to purchase an outside antennae as a result of your being in a weak signal area as signal quality changes by such things as the switch over to digital upcoming and environmental changes.

I got a rca home theater older model TV....how do I program it to receive digital channels using and indoor rca HD antenna


Let's assume this is a digital TV, not one of the old analog home theaters. First hook up the antenna. Then go into the TV's setup menu. These vary by model in their choices and the names they use. Find the section of the menu that deals with "input" or "home." You're looking for a choice of "cable" and "antenna." Choose "antenna." There will also be a selection that tells the TV to "scan" for channels. That's what you want it to do. Typically this takes anywhere from 30 seconds to a couple of minutes. Once the TV has found all the channels available, you can exit the menu. From then on it's a simple matter of using your remote to choose the input you want to watch at that time: TV (from the antenna); Cable (if you have a box plugged into another input); DVD etc.

A note on antennas: indoor ones tend to have VERY limited range. They will get reliable reception only on local stations with high-power transmitters. My brother lives in Maine, miles away from the nearest tower, and his indoor got just one station consistently, but with lots of dropouts. A $35 outdoor one got four, three of which were reliable. He bought a better one for about $90 and now he gets 7 or 8, all but one of them consistently.

Indoor antenna won't work on my cable ready set


You do have to make sure to switch the settings to an external antenna. You also will have to check that you have what is an analog signal available to you. If you antenna is analog it will only get analog broadcast. You may also need to switch to a digital tv antenna, The other thing is the range of you antenna. Most indoors, in a congested area will only pull in signal from about 20 to 25 miles out.

How to get rca indoor antenna to pick up free digital channels on my Samsung television


Indoor antennas are not very good if you live far away from the TV transmitter. Antenna aim has to be more precise than before with analog TV's. If you can put up an outside antenna you'll probably get them all.

Really tough to get perfect reception with Rabbit ears. If you can somehow feed the line outside a lot of the times I have found that it helps improve signal reception

Hook up to digital TV antenna indoor passive


Please check if the antennae is connected with right cable and the dipole is good. If so search the channels avaiilable and if there is no signal then it is possible that the TUNER is faulty. check using another TV with the same antennae or check the RF input using a VCR or TUNER.

How can i install an indoor antenna to my tv? its no signal coming up i have a rca antenna. will that work?


Your TV has to have a digital tuner. If you get to the input for digital tuner it will display the channels with decimal points 2.1, 2.2, etc. If you do not see that you have an analog tuner or cable ready.
Try changing the inputs until you get digital channels. If not, go to the store and purchase digital converter box...40 bucks

Sharp Aquos LC 32G4U not receiving any channels-


Most locations are real hard to get local stations using indoor antennas. If you are in a location where you do not have cable, I would try either a outside antenna on the roof or go with Direct TV Dish / Dish Network system.
I hope this helps,
