TV Repair Questions? Ask a TV Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.
I believe I can answer this, if you can locate the model number for me. It should be printed on a sticker on the back side of the tv.
I have it NAthan
here it is:
model: LE 32D450G1W / XZF
Perfect, thank you for the information.
do you need anything else? Maybe a photo of the back side?
No that is sufficient, thank yo.
This is a 2011 model HD ready LCD tv, and it is indeed freeview capable.
Meaning it does have a built in freeview tuner. You should be able to connect up an aerial to it and pick up local stations at no cost.
what is the aerial? an antena?
where do I get one?
Yes, aerial is antenna
My neighbor has antena on the roof of our building
We call it an antenna (I'm in the US), I thought you called it an aerial in UK
but I guess I can't get to that one
I am from Serbia
living in UK
Well he may be able to share, by putting a splitter off the lead coming into his area and running a line to your tv
although he is an American guy, I doubt he would bother with me so much
But you can purchase an antenna easily at most any store that sells tvs and electronics, or online
if I buy one, where do I need to place it? on the roof as well?
also, can I detect (and how) it there IS an antena on my roof already
If you are in an urban area, you shouldn't need a roof mounted one
I am, I am living in the central London
If you're within about 50km of the broadcast towers, you'll have no issue with an indoor antenna like this
do you know where can I get one? and aproximative cost?
also, where to connect it, when I get it?
I am 3 km away from the broadcast tower
It has a round coaxial type lead, which will push/screw onto the silver threaded connector on the back of the tv
from there you go into the tv setup menu, under tuner/channels, and run the auto program function
you can order the one I just sent a link to right from amazon, under L20
what do you mean, under L20?
just one last question
I have sent you a photo
have you received it?
No I did not
shall I plug it into the round "antena" plug in?
There it came through, thanks
and yes, ANT IN is the port that will be used
You'll find a matching male version of the cable on most any antenna you purchase
and when I take my TV remote control- the original Samsung one (I know this is a stupid question buy I am completely ignorant), and I press the power button.....
turn the tv on
then press the INPUT (source) button on the remote, repeatedly, until it gets to the "TV" (tuner) mode.
From there, you'll press MENU, then complete the auto scan process I mentioned earlier
just a sec
I am making a photo of my screen
will show you, what appears on the screen when I turn the power button ON
this is the first screen
then when I press SOURCE button, this is the second one......
which option of these 4, I should choose?
on the 2nd screen, you have to choose TV mode, which is the internal tuner (for use with antenna)
and then- RUN the menu
then press MENU
is the TV going to find by itself the right option for the FREEVIEW?
then from there you should see an auto program (channel scan) selection
If you are prompted to choose air/antenna, or cable, you choose air. That is all you need to do.
I see.....OK, will try
It will make sense once you connect the antenna and get into the menu
now the last thing is to order an antenna
if you get stuck, you can get back in touch with me
could you, PLEASE; go to the Amazon site and send me the right link ?
since I might not know which one to choose????
I sent you a link to 1 specific item
ok, do it
