2104S television problem.

Finally got our baby out. Got to the park and cannot get the TV to work. At the PDI it was fine. Now nothing and of course the dealer forgot to give us the manual for it. "Oh I forgot" The tv is a 22" Konka flat screen. Anyone have any ideas. All it shows is "no signal" either on antenna or cable.

Checked all connections? Antenna up? Booster on? TV input selected to antenna? Antenna turned to get best reception (check signal strength meter on TV)?

Thanks

Went thru all the connections all is fine. Was finally able to get a screen that allowed me to get back to factory settings. It automatically checked all channels and picked them up. Recieving thru the antenna(HDTV). Storing to try to get the cable next. Who knows maybe we will get " Deadlest Catch" yet.

The Manual

The wall plate and antenna aiming are the key to over the air (OTA) reception.

Make sure the power light is ON (this switches the wall plate from "cable" to "antenna" and routes power up the coax to the amplifier in the white box between the bat wings.

Rotate the antenna until the "wings" of the "Batwing" antenna are 90 degrees to the transmission towers. Picture the white box as the cockpit of an aircraft and the wings as the wings of the aircraft; fly to the towers.

So, where are the towers?

With an iPhone or iPad you can use a program like "towers" to locate the broadcast towers and using the satellite map find your actual camp site and the program will give you something to aim your antenna with.

With a computer, use the web and the site AntennaWeb - Home to accomplish the same thing.

Thanks for your help. After 4 of us screwed around for a couple of hours we discovered a broken connector inside the back of the TV
