Question about Sharp LC-26SH10U 26 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Sharp digital tv cannot receive digital signal

My tv is plugged into the coaxial cable antenna but not subscribed to cable service and everything was fine for awhile. After the digital transition, my tv could only pick up 4 local broadcast channels and only sporadically. Otherwise, I would get the warning that the digital channel signal strength is low. I rescanned for channels and only picked up about 5 channels even though they still say signal is too low. I thought it was because I was using a splitter to my cable modem but I have since moved to a new apartment and still plugged into the coaxial cable antenna without cable service. I rescanned and only get 2 channels without any signal either. HELP?!

This television would benefit from an hdtv indoor outdoor amplified antenna not obstructed by trees, aluminum, bricks, and etc. Make sure the signal type is air and not cable and complete a channel scan during primetime tv hours after connecting to this antenna. Buy a large one that you can mount to the wall usually in a large flat box on the shelf in the store. Philips has one sold at Walmart.

They keep saying signal is weak check your source connection what does that mean


It means exactly what it says, the signal coming to your television is weak. It is usually bad connections in cable, incorrect aerial positioning in over air or satellite signals.

Remove any input plugs, and check that the wires aren't oxidized, that they are shiny and clean.

Why no coaxial fm connector on rx-884-v?


It's only no connector,like TV antenna socket. For coaxial antena cable, just plug it to 75 ohm and ground socket. No need jack/connector.

Do I need a digital converter box to recieve a digital broadcast with a Sharp LC-20SH4U TV?


Yes you need a digital converter box. Your model has an NTSC Analog Tuner. It doesn't have a Digital Tuner. This is why you need the converter box.


For example, many companies like Comcast or Time Warner or TCI etc used to broadcast Analog Signals through their wires. Now they have broadcasted only Digital Signals. This makes either your TV Obsolete as a Tuner or you have to get a digital converter so your Analog TV can receive the signal.

Depending on your service, it may be worth your while to get a TV with a digital Tuner.

Then again, it also depends on if you are connecting a box receiver to your TV. For example, if you have Directv or Dish, you would then use your standard Video/Audio or Composite Cables to transmit your signal OR your Out to TV Coaxial whichever works for your receiver. Some receivers have already built in converters . You should really consider all the factors to decide and determine it based on the type of service you have or want.

HDTV unable to get HD Channels w/ Antenna


The problem could be your antenna. Many people will buy small indoor tv antennas and wonder why they're not getting the signal that they want or the channels that they expect. Its not your fault. Digital signal is in two formats: UHF AND VHF. Some antennas only receive UHF. But many of the low band channels are VHF, so 1) you need an antenna that will receive those signals and 2) you need to know how and where to install that antenna and 3) you need to know if you need a signal amplifier depending on your coaxial cable length and number of connections. I recommend visiting dennys antenna service (no I don't work there and I have never purchased anything from that website. He just has an excellent informational article with a great deal of "how to" on his pages.). http://www.dennysantennaservice.com/2029710.html This should be of great help to you. Happy viewing =)

The words "weak signal" flashes on screen at different places and do not receive a picture.


seems like you are using an "off the air antenna" that receives weak signal, you may be too far from the station, go get a roof top amplifier antenna or subscribe to digital service from cable, satellite or at&t uverse. If you think your antenna is getting good signal, try to rescan your tv for available channel. Make sure your TV set up is correct, if you are using Off the air signal, your setting should be set at "Antenna or off the air", then rescan your TV. Normally on Satellite or cable box, you just watch it on video channel or component input, if you are using HDMI then tune to HDMI channel.
Check your connection to make sure they are making good contact. If you can post your set up, I can better solve your problem.
For a resource on "off the air" antenna, go to www.antennaweb.org for help.

Initial hdmi tv, no signal received


If you are trying to get 'off the air' signals then you must scan for the new digital channels in your reception area (this info should be in your owners manual). If scanning doesn't find any signals, you might have to add a VHF/UHF line amplifier(s) between your antenna and the TV set or improve your outside antenna or the cable leading from it to your set. You might have to resort to subscribing to HD cable or satellite TV.
